Sometimes I crave vegetables. Other times, I’m asleep.
Despite it being so disappointingly warm out this winter, it’s still a tradition to have a lavish amount of soup in every corner of the cooler. My friend pointed out how old school I am with cooking. I generally don’t use anything other than knives and a cutting board to prep. I’ve never liked all those fancy tools. I have a vegetable chopper but there’s something soothing about chopping veggies by hand while listening to music. I couldn’t complain if I tried.
The hemp doesn’t taste much different from almond milk but I’m a fan of the health benefits. I mixed some of the hemp milk with honey, blueberries, coconut oil, chia seeds and bee pollen for a snack in the morning and I’ll be lucky if it makes it that far.
I like to separate my vegetables when prepping in bunches of how well-done I want it to be. Carrots and potatoes and celery take the longest, then peppers, then zucchini and mushrooms were last. It helps keep my thoughts organized for the texture I want.
