Vitamix Bliss

I recently became a proud owner of the bourgeoi-est blender out there, the Vitamix! I bought it off so I didn't pay $499.99 for it. Since then I have been searching online for good recipes from smoothies to soups to salsas to desserts. Here is my curated list of favorites:

Coconut Carrot Curry soup from:

Nut free 3 ingredient macaroons:

Fully raw pi~na kale-ada:

Blended salsa guacamole (I used to make this in my blender before I had a vitamix)

Mango lassi: I use almond milk and honey instead of milk and sugar, no ice since my mango is frozen from Costco:

Tomato basil soup: I don't use cheese, cream or butter and it still comes out bomb.

Vegan alfredo sauce with brown rice pasta: I didn't put the avocado

Vegan mac n cheese: I made this with sweet potato noodles but next time I will use brown rice pasta for full pleasure

Carrot-Miso-Ginger Salad Dressing: From Gwyneth Platrow (blegh) but its good (yum)

Pesto Hummus
Can't find the recipe I used but it's basically: 1 can of chickpeas, 1/4 cup of pine nuts, lemon, fresh basil, garlic, avocado or olive oil

I love my Vitamix!! It changed my world #paradigmshift

Happy New Year!

Happy new year to all my friendz. I got off work early yesterday and came home to make healthy pizza with cauliflower crust. It took more time since I didn't have a food processor, I had to cut the whole head of cauliflower up.  I even woke up and ate it for breakfast this morning. Surprisingly, I was able to stay up until midnight and blow horns and scare my daughter. I gave her a kiss first, and then my husband, and then my mother. Romantic. 

I'm obsessed with Cassey Ho and blogilates as of late. I woke up and did her pilates yesterday. I'm sore to the core. This recipe was from one of her cheap clean eats videos.

Since I've been "reading" (listening to on book on tape) a lot of Deepak Chopra lately, I have been striving to find balance and lightness. I always thought new years resolutions were stoopid but I think writing down feasible wants and goals as a way of improving your life is way cool now. Damn I'm getting so old and lame. How did this happen? 

Writing down your goals is important but more important is writing down HOW you are going to do these daunting tasks you have assigned yourself. You gotta have a plan (right MP)?

Anyhow, we were supposed to go to Universal Studios today since I have the day off but I have a lot of stuff to catch up with around the house that will make my life easier. We can always go Saturday. I don't really feel like going to a theme park then coming home and having to go to work tomorrow, it's better suited for a Saturday.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I would write it in Spanish but I don't know how to use the ~ character over a n  so if I write it I will be writing happy new anus. Not cool, unless that is what you strive for...
