Roasted Brussel Sprouts–Amazing! From Wellsphere

Posted in Uncategorized on May 29, 2011 by birdy27

When I was a kid, i HATED most veggies and brussel sprouts in particular. So it was a shock to me that, after becoming a vegetarian, I actually began to LOVE brussel sprouts. It’s pretty amazing! And so are brussel sprouts. I haven’t had any in a long time because I buy organic produce (except watermelons) and organic brussel sprouts are pretty expensive. But this roasted brussel sprouts recipe from Wellsphere.com is making me salivate! Now I just wish I had a working oven. Check it out! You’ll be running to Whole Foods to buy some of these sprouts before you know it. Chirp, chirp!

I love creating clean geometric designs! Sometimes it’s all about pattern, color, and shape. These types of patterns can make a strong statement. They look so good with contemporary decor. And this design on these new mini-computer speakers will make others take notice. There are lots of circles in different colors alternating with rows of circles in shades of gray. Click on the link to learn more about these speakers and to buy. They make great gifts, especially for that new graduate going off to college. Chirp, chirp!

Vegan Rice Bowls–Yummy!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 25, 2011 by birdy27

I’m obsessed right now with vegan rice bowls! These rice bowls are so simple and a great way to eat your greens! Well, yes, I really do like the idea of eating my salad first before eating cooked food, if I’m eating cooked food. But, honestly, it just doesn’t seem to happen. So I was inspired by Chipotle Mexican Grill’s veggie fajita bowl, the only thing I order there since I’m mostly vegan and gluten-intolerant. So here’s my fave rice bowl recipe. It’s quick and easy as long as the rice has been cooked earlier.

– brown rice seasoned with Spike seasoning
– mixed spring greens
– marinated tempeh sauteed in a little EVOO, Bragg’s Amino Acids, and water
– 1/2 avocado
– tomato

That’s basically it! You can add more ingredients if you like. You can add as much rice as you please, just be sure to add enough seasoning if you add a lot of greens. I use a big bowl and just mix it all together. It’s a quick and easy vegan meal that is very satisfying. You don’t need to worry about adding salad dressing either, so it’s a low fat meal. If you want to make it lower in fat, skip the avocado. But for me, this natural fat is a good thing and it really makes it taste even better. Enjoy! Chirp, chirp!
