S&M = Love July 18, 2009

This morning I finished off the last of my honeydew melon for breakfast.


Then I got busy doing things all day long, so lunch was some snacky items throughout the afternoon.  There were some carrots.


Some dates and almonds.


A plum and an apricot.


And a Kashi Trail Mix granola bar that I found hiding behind a bowl while cleaning up my pantry shelves.


But the main event of the day was absolutely the modified S&M salad I fixed up for dinner. Instead of macadamia nut oil, I used part of my avocado and massaged it into romaine and baby spinach with freshly squeezed lime juice and salt. Then I topped the bowl with hemp seeds, flaked dulse, more avocado, tomato, fresh rosemary, and a broken up Radical Rosemary and Onion cracker from Live Food Bar, who appear to have started selling some of their stuff through the health food store around here. The rosemary crackers are great, but I also bought a pack of their Nachos, and tried a bite, and they are beyond fantastic! You know what else is fantastic? The salad. So good. And now I have lots of the required toppings (and dulse totally tastes like bacon-y seaweed) so I can eat it many, many more times. This makes me very happy 🙂


And I suppose dessert was some of the super ripe and delicious pineapple I ate while chopping it up for the fridge. But, you know, sticky pineapple fingers and cameras don’t play well with each other. And for those of you who asked, my blender is a Vita-mix I got for (relatively) cheap off of Craigslist. And it was totally worth it, especially for super smooth leafy green packed green monsters, which I obviously quite enjoy. Now I’m contemplating the purchase of a dehydrator, but my roomie’s parents may have one they’ll donate to us, so I’ll hold off until I can experiment with that first.

PS. I love the mark down rack at the grocery store, I can’t wait to do something with these.

    Those trail mix bars are pretty decent.

    Great salad! I want to try the dulse flakes but haven’t really looked for it yet.

    Great deal on the dried mushrooms!

    Just got back from a yummy dinner at Live. Have you tried the kale chips? They’re beyond good, it’s hard not to eat the whole bag.
