After a week of vacation (no more rum punch ever please) followed by a week of birthday girl celebrations, I need a smidge of a healthy restart.
My body will thank me, actually it’s begging me desperately for it.
So after spending a morning of juicing cucumbers, ginger and lemons to make a detox water (actually juicing only took two minutes, whereas the rest of the morning was spent cleaning my juicer), I started in on lunch.
On Pinterest (honestly where else?) I have been seeing people sub-out carbs for various veggies for clean eating. Use sweet potatoes instead on buns for sliders (tried that one), bell peppers instead of chips for nachos (no thanks, nachos are literally perfect as is) and collard greens as to make wraps.
So I made some lemon-oregano chicken for The Boyfriend, added some hummus from the greek place around the corner and various chopped veggies.
Perfect way to kick-start a healthy week. But then I realized it’s already Thursday and I’m meeting a friend for cocktails tonight. Well, you gotta start somewhere.
There’s always something about margaritas on a sunny patio. But never fail, come Monday, we are back on track.
I found the recipe for this on one of the various blogs/websites I read daily and have been meaning to make it. I went to the grocery store yesterday and cabbage was 2/$1. The Boyfriend pointed out it’s probably because cabbage is so gross.
Anything this simple quickly becomes a favorite in my cooking repetoire. I made a mix of lemon juice, garlic, olive oil and salt & pepper. Oven. Done.
And The Boyfriend is wrong. Cabbage is not gross. It’s pretty good.
It’s no Oreo malt from around the corner good, but then again, nothing is.
