I decided to be brave and try the mango habanero kombucha from Kevita. I love it! First of all, I love mangoes. But I find a lot of mango flavored things taste terrible and fake. Same for peach. But this tastes light and fresh, and the spice is just a little slow burn that is more of a flavor enhancer than spice. The little kick compliments the mango and also the tang of kombucha really well. This is much tastier than I expected, and you guessed it, it's one of my favorites!!! The candle holder doesn't look as awesome during the day. When it's darker out, and I have a tea light burning in there, it's such a warm comforting glow. Apparently these things are food grade Himalayan sea salt, and could be grated for salt. Good to know if I ever have a salt emergency!
I can't seem to go more than two days without oven fries in my life. For someone who was so eager to get off the potato cleanse, I sure do continue to eat a ton of potatoes! This Carolina gold BBQ sauce from Trader Joe's is really, really tasty. It's lighter than other BBQ sauces. It's made with mustard, so it has extra tang! And, Trader Joe's uses vegan worcestershire sauce. They now put the ingredients in parenthesis for the worcestershire sauce.
This Quinoa and brown rice blend was on sale at Target, so I decided to try this for my new rice cooker. As I mentioned, cooking fluffy quinoa is not one of my talents. I'm happy to say it came out fluffy! And it cooked while I did yoga, and i didn't have to worry about running in to turn the stove off!
When it was done cooking and steaming, I stirred in some frozen roasted corn and edamame. I had this for breakfast this morning with some Romaine lettuce, red onion and carrot. I drizzled a little Italian dressing over the whole bowl. It was really delicious! I enjoy quinoa when it's fluffy and fully cooked! This bowl just looks so happy with all of the colors! It drives me insane when vegan food is portrayed as beige, or only green, as if we live on kale.
As always. I wish you a happy Caturday!
