Delish Overnight OATS

A crazy week, a craving to eat feel good foods and lots of berries (fresh and dried) on hand; it was time to get on the food wagon that everyone else had already embarked on – delish overnight oats. The result? I fell completely in love with the ease of prep and the yumminess of this breakfast! Actually, it has become an anytime, go-to treat.

Crave the fries, skip the high carbs

It’s my new favorite versatile vegetable and it will only be making an appearance at my local farmers market for a few more weeks.  Yes, I’m continuing my love fest with Kohlrabi.  These fries are so easy and ready in 25 minutes with hardly any work involved.  Our fries disappeared within nanoseconds of appearing on the table.

Ingredients:

1 kohlrabi, peeled and sliced into french fry size sticks

1 tbsp olive oil

Salt to taste

Paprika or hot chilly powder to taste

How To:

Preheat over to 420 degrees Fahrenheit.

Toss the kohlrabi sticks with olive oil, salt, and paprika or chilly powder.

Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet and stick it in the oven.

At the halfway mark, flip the kohlrabi sticks and continue baking for the remainder of the time.

Remove from oven, rest for a minute at room temperature and serve with your favorite sauce or dip.

Tip: I served mine with a quick dip made by mixing two tbsps of mayonnaise (you can use the vegan kind), with a sprinkle of salt and a nice sprinkle of berbere.

Enjoy!

 

 

A perfect little snack for pre or post -workout hunger pangs

This is going to be the briefest of posts!  I needed a quick pre-workout snack and while the juicy peach in the fruit bowl was calling my name, I just wanted a little spicy kick.

So I sliced up the peach, arranged it on a plate, poured a teeny bit of balsamic vinegar, sprinkled some berbere and just a dash of Himalayan salt.

It hit all the right notes and as you can tell from the picture, is a pretty anytime snack to serve.

PS.  I’ve tried this by substituting chilly powder, Indian chaat masala or black pepper for berbere and each version has been yummy.  It also tasted yummy with nectarine or apples instead of the peach.
