Warning: Beets are messy. They stain. They look like blood.
I experimented spiralizing beets last weekend and while they came out good, it required more effort than I was expecting. Especially on the clean up side.
Murder scene or handling beets? You decide.
Everything came off (eventually) but required extra scrubbing. I’ll remember that next time I tackle beets.
Now for other food related items..
I FINALLY tried Nuttzo. I’ve seen it on practically every blog for the last year so I wanted to see what the hype was about. It’s really good. But it’s really expensive. I’ve never shelled out anywhere near that much money for a jar of peanut butter in my life. I got the original flavor but would like to try the peanut free one next time. I need to factor this into my budget if I continue on this train.
Last week was all about chicken. This week it was salmon. A few weeks ago I bought a package of frozen salmon from Whole Foods and forgot it was in the freezer. Winner-winner.
This was honey mustard salmon (honey + mustard + coconut oil + salt + pepper), roasted broccoli and sweet potatoes in coconut oil.
Lemon-rosemary salmon with quinoa (cooked with half chicken broth half water) and zucchini noodles sautéed in a rosemary flavored olive oil.
And I now have a food processor on my list of things to buy next because so many recipes require it. But I’m in a dilemma because I’m running out of storage in my apartment (such a #firstworldproblem). I wanted to make an avocado or pesto sauce but I didn’t have a blender. Also, most homemade bars are made from dates and you need a processor to turn them into a paste. (I think??). Maybe I can do some rearranging and figure out a system. I say that now…
What are your favorite nut butter brands? I’ve been a Skippy Natural addict for years. I’m adding to my list now.
Do you own/use a food processor? Is it worth the investment and rearranging?
