Happy Halloween, by the way! Unfortunately, I didn't plan to dress up or do any festive activites. I knew I'd be tired coming home from the wedding, so I just planned on making it a low- key, peaceful night :) Who wants to spend money on a costume they may never wear again, anyway? Sorry to be the party- pooper.
Anyways, I came home tonight intending to take a long beach walk or run, but that didn't happen. I was much too tired and out of it to do anything, so I respected my body. I did make a quick, yummy salad though.
With the help of this guy I found at Costco the other day, I made a quick avo- Mediterranean mix...
Greens with avocado, roasted red pepper hummus, goat cheese, mushrooms, yellow pepper and organic tortilla chips to accompany.
Not the prettiest salad, but I blame it on my incompetence tonight :) And how I'm going to finish that RRP hummus beast, well, let's just say there'll be a lot of hummus dishes to come!
Mmmm, fats and veggies, how I missed you :)
To start off the holiday season, egg- nog ice cream, anybody?
Protein ice cream made with homemade almond milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves, pumpkin, and avocado- topped with dark chocolate, cashews, pumpkin seeds, and chia seeds.
Recipe for Egg- nog protein ice cream:
1 Cup non-dairy milk of choice (I did whole made almond)
1/2 t guar gum
1/3 t zanthum gum
1 t cinnamon
1/4 t ground cloves + nutmeg
2 heaping spoonfuls of pumpkin puree
1 heaping spoonful of avocado
15 ice cubes
Blend all ingredients in a VitaMix blender, or other high- speed blender. Top with favorite festive toppings and enjoy :)
Not much of a Halloween lover, but I'm SO excited for the holidays to come! Have a lovely night, everyone!
