I’m going on vacation! I can’t believe it. I’m going on vacation, by MYSELF! With much encouragement from Aya, I’ve decided to take a much needed self-care soul-retreat vacation. Look out California, here I come!
I received a grill a few summers ago, but I got it just when I started to cook mostly vegetarian meals at home. It was a hand me down grill and I didn’t want to pass up getting a free grill. But how much grilled asparagus can a guy make? Not being familiar with vegetarian grilling I started to do some research and found some sweet recipes. One that I really really liked was this grilled salad recipe I saw on a PBS cooking show. Grilled salad!? You can do that?
I’m not a big grill guy at all. I love to eat things of the grill, but it just hasn’t been my preferred method of cooking. I could see myself getting into it now. I mean come on, look at that picture! I could get used to grilling if things keep turning out that good.
When Aya was pregnant with Ellie, she was looking for a good healthy filling breakfast. She never really had much time to spend fussing on breakfast in the morning either. Then we came across a few chocolate breakfast shakes that put oatmeal in a blender with some frozen bananas. Wow, quick, easy, and filling. But we wanted to add some extra “pow” to it. So we added flaxseed meal, chia seeds, and a bunch of other buzzworthy super foods.
