This green smoothie didn’t taste exactly like my beloved Pina Colada, but it was reminiscent:
I used fresh pineapple (about 1/2 cup),half a frozen banana, frozen mango (about 5 pieces), 2 cups of fresh spinach, 1T flax-seed, 1/4 cup oatmeal, a splash of coconut milk, and a little water to thin it out. Pretty tasty and festive.
Lunch today was a giant salad. How do my salads get so ginormous. They start off innocently enough, a bed of greens, a couple of baby carrots, a tomato (wow, that tomato is good, guess I’ll use the whole thing). Add some leftover curry rice and some sautéed chicken, and this bowl is much bigger than it appears.
I ate it all! Worked up an appetite at the gym.
Simmer garlic on low in olive oil (about 4T should do it). Make sure the temp is low, burnt garlic is awful. I slowly simmered the garlic until it turned a light golden brown, added the spinach and cream cheese, salt and pepper,and some milk to thin it out. While this tasted amazing, I was overkill on the cream cheese, so rich and filling. Next time I would use half the cream cheese and more milk. Still delicious!
Served with Grilled swordfish and corn on the cob. Tasty!
