here is yet another skinny bitch recipe..... i make it almost every monday and put it in my sweet peas lunch so he stays full and wont eat burger king.
i never follow a recipe exactly because i do not like to waste a whole can of something because a recipe calls for one cup. your never gonna eat the rest of the can of corn in the fridge so put the whole fucking thing in the salad! waste not want not
1-half bag frozen shelled edamame
1-can red kidney beans drained rinsed
1-can chic peas drained rinsed
2- green onions sliced
1- red pepper sliced and diced
2-tbs parsley fresh italian or dried

in a smaller bowl, start your dressing
3-tbs red wine vinegar
1-big spoon full of dijon mustard
3-tbs olive oil
whisk together and then drizzled over salad.
stir and then let sit in fridge for at least one hour
They are my new Obsession!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I drink one every morning now and find myself in the best of fucking moods! The best part is.... Josh gets home before i do most days and washes the blender for me! In a new effort to avoid soy (processed soy , tempeh and miso are still ok) I have been researching alternatives. So happy to have found almond milk and hemp milk! they are so much better for you, no Gmos, and oh so yummy.
So my new fave smoothie creation is...
Almond chocolate kinda tastes like a milkshake/cookie
(if you remember take banana out of freezer at least 20 minns prior to making smoothie, you will have a easier time getting the peel off. Otherwise you will be standing over the sink jerking off a icicle, it feels so wrong)
1 cup almond milk
5 tbps choclate HempShake by Nutiva
2 tbs Almond Butter
blend blend blend
soooooo yummy. my camera needs batteries so now photos on my yummy creation!
I adapted my own version here from the skinny bitch series book, skinny bitch in the kitch!
which i suggest picking up for some basic recipes
1- box brown rice pasta
6 tbs vegan butter
10 garlic cloves (stinky!)
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
5 tbs green goddess salad dressing (the garlic one, make sure to get the vegan brand annies i think)
2 zucchini sliced
1 head of broccoli cut into bite size pieces
1 bunch of kale ripped into bite size pieces
1/4 pine nuts
cook pasta according to directions. when you have 4 minns left add all your veggies and cook together in the same pot. reserving 1/4 cup of water, drain and let it all chill for a minn in the colander.
meanwhile melt butter and add garlic. cook on medium heat until garlic is tender, be careful not to burn! mash garlic with a fork.
add a few scoops or pasta and veggies into the pot at a time and drizzle with garlic butter, stirring till it is all coated. add in your green goddess salad dressing and sprinkle nutritional yeast. should be a little creamy and tangy. stir in 1/8 the cup on pine nuts . serve warm and sprinkle top with remaining pine nuts and salt and pepper . yum!
I had to quit the master cleanse. Not to be too personal but i got my period and that was just to much for me. On to raw food for a bit......
I forgot to mention how fantastic yesterday was. Josh and I walked downtown then took the monorail to seattle center. Much to my surprise they have a roller coaster there!!!!!!! I started screaming when I saw it, I was so excited. We rode it twice. It was Josh's first roller coaster ride ever! The Windstorm! The fastest $17 we have ever spent but worth it for sure. I was so jealous of all my friends in nyc because they have coney island, well jealous no more. my love promised to take me here whenever i am sad.
So today is my first day of the Master Cleanse. I have tried it before and only made it to day 3.
I keep trying not to think about it or make a big deal. I felt pretty great all day. Only now at 9:07 am i starting to feel like shit. I have thee worst headache. Jeez what is in my body.
I told myself when i started this that i would just go as long as i could and not set any limits for myself. So we shall see.
I drank half of my salt flush a half hour ago, so far nothing has happened. The last time i attempted to drink a liter of salt water i barfed it right back into the sink. This time was a little more successful.
