Asian quinoa salad. I thought about getting Chick’n strips but opted for mushrooms instead because I want to do my best to avoid processed foods, even if vegan. Ginger sesame dressing.

Summer is SALAD SEASON. Mixed greens with fresh peaches, avocado, and corn off the cob is really the best :). And I topped this with the Baked Almond Feta I had made earlier, and a simple homemade balsamic dressing of olive oil, equal parts balsamic and honey, and salt and pepper. The honey brings out the sweetness of the peaches the best.

Don’t give me that “I don’t eat breakfast” bullshit. It’s too early to be an asshole. The fiber in the oatmeal helps control your blood sugar and keeps you feeling full until lunch. The quinoa gives your morning a little extra protein because why the fuck not? Start your day right by owning the shit out of it. CARPE FUCKING DIEM.

QUINOA OATMEAL 

1 cup steel cut oats (they aren’t all mushy like regular oatmeal)
½ cup quinoa (I used scarlet quinoa but you grab whatever you can find)
1 teaspoon olive or coconut oil
4 cups water
½ cup almond milk (or whatthefuckever milk you prefer)

Heat up the water in a kettle on the stovetop or in the microwave until it is near boiling. Put the quinoa in a strainer and rinse that shit so it isn’t bitter after you cook it. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat and add the steel cut oats. Stir them around and cook until they smell kinda toasty, like 1-2 minutes. Add the quinoa and the water and bring it all to a boil (this won’t take long because the water should already be hot as fuck). Turn down the heat on the pot and let it simmer. Go check your tumblr or Facebook shit while it cooks for about 20 minutes. It should taste done now, not hard but still a little chewy. Add the milk and turn off the heat. Serve with fresh fruit, nuts, maple syrup, brown sugar, whateverthefuck will get you through your day.

Serves 4 (love to hit snooze? double the recipe and heat up the leftovers all week)

I finally got around to making this Bake Almond Feta recipe. The original blogger had nothing but good things to say about it, and while it’s not bad in any sense, my verdict is that it’s just… interesting. The taste is alright; feta’s tanginess is replicated with lemon juice and garlic, but because it’s made from almond meal, the texture does require some chewing and isn’t exactly melt-in-your-mouth like real feta.

I’m convinced that all veggies ever really need, raw or cooked, is: olive oil, a squeeze of lemon, salt, and freshly cracked black pepper. This also makes a much more preferable salad dressing compared to the store-bought versions, with who knows how many preservatives and weird ingredients in them.
(I’m reading a book called Pandora’s Lunchbox right now, a detailed look into the processed food industry of America. You couldn’t even imagine how much seemingly whole ingredients can be chemically altered. And who knew that CHEERIOS of all things really aren’t that good for you anyhow? Very eye-opening)
This salad is romaine lettuce, tomatoes, the simple dressing I just mentioned, and shaved parmesan.
