Super Fresh

I love lunches like this.

My big salad today (gettin’ in those veggies!) is full of:

  • romaine
  • spinach
  • cilantro
  • red onion
  • 1.5 homemade bean burgers
  • 1/2 avocado, diced
  • squirt of lime juice + salt for “dressing”

I’m pretty sure I’d eat any salad as long as it had avocado + red onion. They’re such a great combination.

I also think someone should make onion rings with RED onions – could you imagine? I think they’d be the best.

Even as good as my salad is, I’m really excited for my other part of lunch.

Homemade yogurt! With banana, cinnamon, and a little squirt of agave.

I’m about to try it, so I’ll definitely have a review later with the recipe I used. I feel like such a hippie, but I love it. Who ever guessed I would be making my own yogurt when I couldn’t cook anything that wasn’t in a box until 6 years ago?

 

What’s the most fun or enjoyable recipe / food you’ve made at home?

    Hit up the Red Raven restaurant in Williams, Arizona.
