It's full-on summer in all its glory. And maybe it's the heat, but I'm feeling sluggish and disappointed. Bummed that I haven't been soaking up my favorite parts of the season: great local produce, farmers markets, and sunny breezy days.
So I'm changing things up for August. Here are my three ground rules:
1. Less meat
2. Less alcohol
3. Walking 30 minutes a day
zucchini carpaccio salad
The emphasis will be whole foods, fresh produce, and feeling good. I won't be eating strictly vegetarian, but close to it. This is the kind of food that makes me sustainably happy (a lot more so than the junk I think I'll enjoy).
We have some old favorites and some new recipes on the horizon this week...
- zucchini carpaccio salad
- crema de guacamole
- fettuccine with asparagus puree
- pesto couscous
- spaghetti squash with fresh tomatoes and parmesan
- quinoa black bean salad
In my search for new recipe ideas, I'm now hopelessly addicted to a ton more food blogs. Occassionaly great recipe blogs make me lose my mind and think I should start one, too! Maybe you wouldn't mind too much if I share a food photo or recipe from time to time? :)
