Thinking inside the box.Posted: June 8, 2010
I came home from my run to a little brown parcel chilling out on my front step. I spotted it the second I pulled my car into the parking space. Let’s chalk that one up to good eyesight, not the fact that I’ve been stalking my IHerb order on the USPS website nightly and knew it was out for delivery this morning 😉
Three guesses what I’m already craving for breakfast in the A.M!
IHerb, you are the shiz.
Also the shiz? Smoothies. This heat is making me crave water-laden fruits and other liquids in a big and may-jah way.
Blueberries, a mango, ice, and POM Pomegranate Lychee Green Tea
Unfortunately, dinner brought me back around to another box. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for convenience, but I MUCH prefer fresh to boxed/canned. My friends would swear it’s because I like to make things more complicated then they need to be. Maybe true. Maybe not.
Either way, I’d heard good things about Fantastic Foods Falafel. It’s vegan and I’m not sent into a shock by the label, and it seemed to me like a Mediterranean version of matzo balls. Any food I get to squeeze together with hands doesn’t take much convincing to make, by the way. And the almost-too-easy ballz jokes? Added bonus.
I don’t see me buying these again, though. They came out kind of dry, and they texture was neither here nor there – not crunchy, not chewy, just kind of…grainy.
I firmly advocate covering your chickpeas in more chickpeas, by the way.
Hope you had a fanTASTIC Tuesday! Is it horrible that I’m actually thinking about watching the Pretty Little Liars pilot tonight? In my defense, I had to read the book for an adolescent lit course I took for my major, so in essence, wouldn’t tuning in be continued education and application? Yeah…my B.S. degree sounds just about right 😉
I need ideas! What’s your favorite smoothie combination?
