soups, salads, smoothies, and Reno

I guess the best I can do these days is go though on/off phases of posting. Things have been pretty good around here in general, but busy and a little stressful. Trying to take more time to prepare meals, though.

A really delicious and filling lentil soup with ginger and parsnip along with the usual suspects (garlic, onion, broth, lentils, carrot, celery.) This bowl had a bit of bok choy tossed in too.

                roasted parsnip, broccoli, and beet with tofu and hummus for a few lunch salads.

a smoothie! It's still warm inside, thank goodness. Spinach, frozen banana, cranberries, coconut flakes, Vega berry protein powder, almond milk, lemon, and water.

loaded salad: spinach, roasted kabocha, carrot, broccoli, mushroom, tofu, avocado, and hummus. Not great lighting.

                    raw kale salad, roasted kabocha, sunflower seeds, and dried cranberries. 
   reading the new Ian Svenonius. It's pretty wild. Drinking a Rawpothecary drink on sale. Also wild.

 Jarrod bowl. Brown rice with a beet, broccoli, mushroom, tofu, chickpea dish. Plus lotsa onion, garlic, and Braggs.
Got more stuff comin' yr way soon. 


  1. Reno looks so peaceful. The lentil soup looks tasty, I've never added bok choy, might have to try that!

  2. Everything looks yummy, and that pooch is too cute. Happy 2016! Maybe I already said that?

  3. Wow! You are still coming up with the most imaginative bowl food. Parsnips and Beets?! with Hummus? whoduthunkit?!

  4. I like seeing the collection of things you've eaten — you always manage to cover the color and flavor spectrum. And you manage to photograph AND post the collection. I take lots of photos but most never get past my computer.

  5. Nice! It looks like you've been eating really well. I love meals like the ones you shared in this post - not too complicated, but satisfying and nourishing. I also love sleepy happy doggies.

  6. When I first read 'Reno' in the title I thought 'Maud's either been in Reno, Nevada or somethings being renovated' soft light tiny pooch giant pillow and couch, awesome bowls & reads; that's how winter is done!
