Intermission!

ITS INTERMISSION!!!

and since I havent posted lately I thought it was time!!!

The show is going really well... my cast is amazing.. and Im really learning a lot. The majority has been on Broadway.. (more than once)...they are all so humble... yea i guess you can say im sort of star struck by it all :)

Ive been eating really well lately actually. I have found that eating tons of small meals a day really helps. I seriously eat every 2 hours..  Nothing too big... usually fruit vegetables etc. 

I dont really know wat to say about my food lately.. but here are tons of pics of my past week and a half!

First I wanna start with :
My new favorite Smoothie!!!!!!...Young coconut, mango and spinach... so simple and so delish...thinking of which im gunna make this tomorrow morning for breakfast!!!

One day when I got home from the show I found these leftoovers... roasted root veggies and white beans.... SOOOO freakin good!

Babaganoush with sliced veggies
A BUNCH of synless bars!!! (starting with the chocolate one going clockwise) Cacao Nib, Apple Pie, Coconut cream pie, Pistachio, Banana bread... I just went to the lara bar site and used the ingredients... and of course modified them.
Champaign Mango, and unripe papaya (ive learned that I dont like it ripe... way better green :)

Fresh Squeezed OJ! thanks mom :)
This green guy was delish!!! He had Raspberries, spinach, ice, coconut water, and raw honey...YUMMM!!!!

MY VERY FIRST BLOOD ORANGE!!!! it was pretty yummy!

Three bean salad with  field greens,pickles (i love them!) and vegan coleslaw... Butternut squash soup...and blue corn chips with salsa
Blended Buckwheat Groats...i threw an apple in there (blended that too) chopped apricot kernels, sliced banana, shredded coconut and raisins!!! YUMMMM

Sliced apple, flax seed crackers (i dehydrated) and 2 tbs of sunbutter... for some reason it always spreads and looks like so much!
Butternut squash soup... its low sodium... dairy free...and soy free.!!! its so yummy... i think its pacific brand but ill check when I get home :)



well friends... there we have it.. my eats.. I dont have much exciting news... accept I have been shopping up a storm..its really a problem!!! ill post all of my new purchases tomorrow!!!!

think: two pairs of adorable sandals, a pair of shorts, linnen pants, a skirt... and and and AHHH!H!!!!!!


isnt this a recession?!?!

I think we have the same taste buds! Your food looks A-MAZING! And blood oranges... HELLO! SO GOOD! Have you tried Asian Pears, yet? They are totally awesome!
Summer makes you want to shop. It's a girl thing. Blame it on the changing seasons!
I head back out on tour tomorrow. LE SIGH! Back to the daily grind!

So much to comment on in this post!
-I love how your blender has a spout for pouring smoothies--I need one of those!
-That smoothie itself sounds diving--I love all three of those ingredients, so I might just have to try it one of these days!
-I just got some Champagne mangoes that aren't quite ripe yet...maybe I'll try them while they're still green:)
-I love pickles too--I'll be sure to include them in my next salad!

I have been on a pickle kick lately I have not had them in a salad but I will try that out soon. I have decided to go mostly raw in my diet thanks to reading your blog. I have been thinking about doing it for a while now but reading your posts and seeing your yummy goods has pushed me over to the raw side :-D

Gina said...

Oh man, so much goodness!

I've never even thought about trying unripe papayas, I'm gonna have to try it. I've always been iffy on papayas in the past, but the one I had recently was so perfect.

I'm glad to hear that the show is going well, food is going well, etc!

Hello! Just started following your blog and I love it! I work in a kitchen where we have a juice and smoothie bar with everything made from organic ingredients. I'm so spoiled.

Your food looks amazing. The roasted roots look great. I'm trying to incorporate more roots into my diet. I'm going to play with some kale and parsnips today and see what I can get going.

Smoothies- here is a great recipe and since you're not afraid of green in your smoothie, I think you may like it. Imagine this: apple or pineapple juice, frozen mango/papaya/peaches (whichever you like) chunks, soy or coconut yogurt, 1/2 cucumber, and two leaves of kale. It sounds scary but I promise it's amazing. I made it up for our summer smoothie and it's a hit in the store. Give it a try and see what you think.

Cheers!

So glad the show is going well! I love it when people who are so accomplished like that are so completely humble..it makes me admire them even more!

Love your eats! Everyone is making those green smoothies, and I think I should definitely try them out. Your bars look like store-bought ones...you should market them! :-)

Bianca said...

I love your synless bars! And that smoothie with the coconut, mango, and spinach sounds amazing!

Good luck with the show!

River said...

YAY for a job you love and a cool cast! Awesome eats, the synless bars look so perfect! Shop on, girl, shop on!! :-)

lesley said...

Oooh, yum! I have yet to try a blood orange but I've been wanting to.

Hi there!!

Thanks so much for your comment on my blog! I've been a fan of yours for a while, and I'm going to add you to my blogroll now :) I love all these amazing looking high-raw eats!
Hope to chat soon, and stay tuned for a recipe later tonight.

Love young thai coconut in my smoothie!! And the water is soooo tasty and refreshing!

I would say Pure Food is a nice fancy place, but if you want to go somewhere more casual then I would go with Caravan. But Pure Food has more raw options and has an upscale feel. Let me know what you choose!

Veganissexy said...

Ooooh those synless bars look divine :) Glad you are feeling good and eating great! Now show us those shopping goods....you know I want to see some goodies :)

Amers said...

Food looks good! I think I'm going to try that spinach, mango, and coconut smoothie. Yum!
I miss you. I'm so proud of you, and I'm glad you're doing fabulously like you always deserve to be!
