Tomorrow’s Lentils Get Corny

In my pantry today:

freezerlentilsOk, so it was still just a thaw-and-eat meal (and one made with love!) and would’ve been perfectly fine without any additions. But we were hungry. And it was cold. So this happened and it was good. 5 spoons!

 

“Best So Far” Pops

In my pantry today:

  • 1 banana
  • 2 c strawberries
  • 1/2 c blueberries
  • 1/2 c sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 c unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 c ground flax
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp  cinnamon

As has been previously discussed, my regard for fruit is mostly a resigned complacency toward the importance of nutrition. Getting all my “colors” in a daily diet is difficult (as is unanticipated alliteration), and making popsicles has put a new spin (food processor shout out!) on the issue. Throw all of the above into a food processor/blender and chew your nails while they freeze, for indeed they will bring a mighty wind of happy flavor. 5 spoons!

Phytopop Friday! (or, “Afternoon Delight”)

In my pantry today:

  • 3 leaves kale
  • 1 small red apple
  • 5 strawberries
  • 1/4 c plain Greek yogurt
  • 1-2 c unsweeteend almond milk
  • 1/4 c ground flax
  • 1 tbsp honey

This one’s easy. Put everything in the food processor, add almond milk to your consistency’s desire, then pour into popsicle molds; freeze. I’m not saying that this is the zenith of potential nutrients in one frozen treat, but it kinda looks like that’s what I’m aiming for — these guys visually appealing while being chock full of phytonutrients! 5 spoons!
