Hi friends! I hope you had a good week and weekend! Mine was interesting to say the least— good things and bad things. But if I learned anything this year it’s that the bad moments are just things that open doors for change to bring in new things. Like this whole health thing— it obviously sucked for so many reasons, but now I’ve fully embraced all the food and life changes that have come from it. Sure, I wish wine was magically good for me so it could be a better part of my life, but I mean, whatever, hand me a tea 😉 Anyway, I’ll ramble later— this post is about the yummy or weird or interesting food Marlowe eats 😉 Happy monday, friends!
veggie fried (brown) rice with tofu (in the cookbook
! ps. thank you thank you for all of you guys supporting me. I was SO nervous, but it’s been such a fun experience!)
we found a GF pizza crust at Whole Foods that was only made with rice! Thats it! Packaged things are typically filled with so much garbage– obviously! But this one was JUST RICE! I wish I could remember the brand to share it with you guys. It was a bit chewy— but that might have been my fault, I think I timed it wrong and pulled it out 4 minutes too early. Topped with leftover sauce and cashew cheese. Eaten at the counter while I cut and roast all my veggies for a few days 🙂
Marlowe on a noodle date with Cameron– her boyfriend. aka the only other person in the cookbook who is not Alex, Marlowe, or myself haha. It’s like we magically have an extra child– we’ll take him! (he’s on page 206 if you want to see 😉
Said noodles. in a veggie broth with tofu, peas, cabbage, carrots, and some other veggies.
tomato soup with veggies and white beans /side of kale chips.
same leftover tomato soup simmered down a bit with brown rice pasta.
tortilla chips, a pureed black bean dip, + guacamole (guac guac-camole)
we do a lot of early morning smoothies. Their super fast, she loves them, it’s a win for everyone. A few of our favorite are in the book— there’s a whole section actually!
miso broth with loads of seaweed, spinach, peas, and carrots / side of kale chips + nutritional yeast.
still trying to get her to love warm oatmeal– we do a lot of cold overnight oatmeals– which are great, obviously, but it would be nice to heat up a bowl of oatmeal for her while I make mine and Alex’s. I’m going to try a few new ones for her this week and see how it goes. Mine is a roasted pumpkin oatmeal (with papaya on top, cause whatever)
Less and less I enjoy going out to eat– unless it’s an indian place– I’m always questioning all the ingredients and everything– but we still do it from time to time of course. We usually opt for an Asian restaurant when we have Marlowe– it seems to have the most options she likes– spring rolls, summer rolls, miso soups, salad with ginger dressing, tofu, rice, etc etc.
a rutabaga and butternut squash soup with a side of avocado toast and black beans. She was nut super happy about this soup– I dont blame her, the butternut squash was sort of meh– but she ate it.
Again, happy monday friends. Thanks for being here!
