Dinner tonight was set to be a repeat of Monday’s, but I decided to give it a spin. While I relied on Asian flavors (sesame, sri racha) for my earlier meal, I went for Italian this time.
The pasta and veggies were prepared identically to Monday, but I took the toppings a different direction. Crowning Old Smoky is another clove of raw garlic, about 1.5 tablespoons of nutritional yeast, several dashes of oregano and basil, a healthy dose of crushed red pepper, and a few cranks of the black pepper mill. This was equally delicious to my earlier effort, though completely different.
Afterward, I had another smoothie:
It contained a handful of spinach, one frozen banana, 1/2-2/3 cup frozen peaches, two teaspoons of cocoa powder, one teaspoon of cinnamon, and about 1/4 cup of coconut milk creamer. I loved the addition of the final ingredient. I’m glad I thought to throw some in.
I enjoyed this little challenge enough that you can expect to see another post with a third variation tomorrow. Good night!
