Only 3 days to go… the countdown is on!!! Woot Woot!!! Here’s a glimpse into the first 8 days so far. Today started with a wonderful green tea. Yummy!!
After the tea, I whipped up a new Smooth & Creamy Smoothy – originally I was intending to make something that was very straberry-y but it seemed to evolve into something else – I love how things evolve in the kitchen and a wonderful new creation always results
Again, I decided to have smoothies until dinner so I made one of my absolute favourites (ok, so I say that a lot – I think they are all my favourites ). I made a Raspberry Banana Smoothy -
I just love the combination of raspberry, banana and almond butter – there’s just something really decadent about that combination!! Sigh!!
And for dinner I created an Asian Style Salad. It started with a stir-fry of carrots, snow peas, mushrooms & ginger with a little toasted sesame seed oil. Once heated I added some thai curry sauce and coconut milk. After heating a few more minutes I added bean sprouts and cilantro and heated through quickly.
This was a wonderful combination and would be great on it’s own – or as a salad. For the salad I added romaine lettuce to a bowl and then topped it with the asian vegetable stirfry… tossed & served. Deeeee-Licious!! Who ever said salads had to be borring!!????
To complement the salad, although not necessary unless you are very hungry or need something more substantial, we enjoyed a side of Roasted Sesame Sweet Potato Wedges w/Almond “Peanut” Sauce. Very delicious indeed
That’s it for Day 9. See you tomorrow …..
