Sunny Sunday mornings are for dining al fresco. Lately all I've wanted to eat is sweets, which is very unlike me. Instead of going for full on sugar and the impending crash my favorite snack is coconut chia pudding. Its super simple to make, loaded with protein and you can top it with whatever ingredients you like.
Cocount Chia Pudding
1 can organic light coconut milk
1/2 cup chai seeds
1 pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon maple syrup (you can add more if you like it a bit sweeter)
Mix coconut milk with salt, vanilla extract, and maple syrup in a glass container until incorporated. Whisk in chai seeds and place in refrigerator overnight to let gel. Spoon as much or as little as you like the next morning, add some berries and sprinkle with ground cardamom (my favorite) or cinnamon and enjoy!
This kitchen in a renovated airstream totally blew me away. I have long had dreams of fixing up a little pop up trailer to take on camping trips (even made a moodboard below and was all set to buy one last summer) but those plans have taken a back seat, no pun intended. This gorgeous space may be the inspiration i need to get back into gear...ok i'll stop.
1 5oz Genovo Tonno Yellowfin in Pure Olive Oil (or any can tuna in olive oil)
2 large brown cage free organic eggs
1 handful hericot vert
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
1 head market lettuce (if you can't make it to your local farmers market butter lettuce works great
2 medium potatoes
a sprinkle of Nyon olives
feta cheese to taste
For the vinaigrette whisk together 2 parts olive oil, to 1 part vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon of grain or dijon mustard, salt and pepper to taste.
Boil potatoes, let cool, then chop in 1-1/2 inch rounds. In a medium frying pan melt butter, add potatoes and cook until golden brown on both sides. Let cool. Soft boil eggs, let cool then slice in rounds. Drain tuna. Assemble and serve right away!
I was wandering around Highland Park when I happened upon the most serene women's clothing and home store called Sonomama. They have all the goods for your spiritual well being as well as some seriously dope gifts, you know like the kind you buy for yourself... Needless to say, I will be back.
On a recent trip to Iceland (more on that later) I saw these gorgeous fluffy sheep skins everywhere, I somehow convinced myself I didn't need one and now that I'm home I can't stop thinking about them...
