Chris deemed dinner restaurant worthy!!! Black bean stew over polenta with a cilantro heavy chimichurri.
Crock pottin today!! Black bean stew. Have some polenta chillin in the fridge.
Starting Weight Watchers again today..or at least trying to. Culinary school and weight loss do not mix!! Since we start the raw section next week I figure I should be ok. No more bread, frying, tofu, rice, beans etc weeks. The damage done in 11 weeks (can’t believe I’ve already completed 11 weeks!!!) was not huge but bad enough!
So the Kale and golden beet recipe I posted yesterday is WONDERFUL!!
We had a class field trip today to a community garden. This weeks course is about local foods. We visited the community coop which had beautiful hens. Saw the compost piles and helped clean a plot and plant. As a reward I was able to bring home lavender clippings!!!
Lunch today - cucumber seaweed and seabeans salad w/chickpeas
Before you eat something take a moment to see where it falls on the chart.
Pumpkin time? It’s too hot for pumpkins (106 today)
I’m going to go gluten free starting next week (Our nutrition class has convinced me) but tonight is a gluten feast.

Vegan hash (potatoes, vegetables, field roast chorizo and kidney beans) with the whole wheat tortillas we made in class on flatbreads day.

Linzer w/ raspberry jam, oatmeal raisin cookies, hello dolly bars and orange hazelnut biscotti
