photo cred Cat What the f*** am I going to eat for dinner? I don't want anything heavy or complicated but I want it healthy. Oh I'll have an omelette but I only have 1 beautiful organic egg... BUT I do have the following in my fridge (thank you MamaEarthOrganics): Asparagus and spinach. And there you have it. So damn delish, it may be my new go-to. Oh and little one sat on my lap and popped the asparagus bits in her mouth while I ate. Riiiiight? All you need: 1 organic/local egg Organic Asparagus diced - as much as you'd like Organic Spinach - handful Pink Himalayan salt - dash Fry up the asparagus for 5 mins, then add spinach for the last minute then crack an egg on top and mix it all up until the egg is cooked. Slap it on a plate and sprinkle with Himalayan salt. Easy-peasy.

I'm blogging about back ends again. I'm sorry. This will be the last one for a while... who knows maybe I'll never blog about booty ever again. This is important, a public announcement regarding what I consider to be an epidemic. Too many women are wearing see-through stretch pants. You've seen it and you assume it's not happening to you. Well you're wrong, it's happening to all of us. Everywhere I look there's some chick bent over, with her glory hanging out like it's a thing. Come on, buy a size up. They're tight and you look good, but they don't need to be that tight. It's just silly. If you must stretch the hell out of your stretch pants, wear underwear. Basic stuff. And to all the yoga pant designers, buyers, manufactures, retailers...cut it out. The material was thicker and the sizes bigger like two years ago, stop messing around. Alright, Cat has an awesome recipe for tomorrow I promise. I've digressed and I'm aware of it.

photo cred Cat We had a wonderful class last night with a spectacular bunch of ladies. The Goods hosted a raw Mexican Fiesta class based on the recipes of the famous and fabulous Elaina Love (through whom all of this was made possible). It was such a pleasure cooking and teaching these lovely ladies. The class was set up by Nadine for her friends. When one friend was told about the upcoming class the reaction was this " What that f***? Raw Mexican?". Needless to say, she was one of our more enthusiastic participants. The food was next level. Talk about guilt-free second helpings. The biggest takeaway from the night was that it's all about adding to your diet not taking away. Add that smoothie, add those gorgeous local fruits and veggies and the rest will follow. Trust me. Check out more of Elaina's easy, delicious and so damn good for you recipes on our blog like this and this.

photo cred Cat New obsession. Quinoa puffs. They are lovely and a really nice & healthy breakfast alternative. Serve it with some sliced fruit and homemade almond milk. And don't forget your peppermint tea with a dash of local unpasteurized honey. Nice one Gov'na. Quinoa Puffs (think making popcorn on the stove) 1. Check to see if your organic quinoa is pre-washed. If not, rinse thoroughly and let dry. 3. Spread a single layer of quinoa in frying pan over med-high heat. 4. Keep mixing/shaking the pan until you smell them roasting, then remove from heat immediately (constantly agitating them will prevent burning). 5. Transfer to a bowl right away - cool - eat. Store leftover in air-tight glass jar. They can also be sprinkled on salads too for a different texture. Enjoy.
