Don’t forget! There is still time to enter the OOFOS giveaway! Just check out Friday’s post!
What have you been eating lately? I’m curious to know! I’ve been on a big veggie kick which is a result of no man in the house (sorry Hubs but if I can get away with no meat . . .) and the fact that I found the most amazing farmer’s market near my work. Confession: I actually work right by my old law firm but for some reason I never bought veggies here before. I honestly don’t know what was wrong with me! This week’s loot:
So with all these veggies here’s what I’ve been making and eating lately:
The wonderful polenta dish with veggies I told you about yesterday.
This totally wonderful panko-crusted caprese eggplant recipe that I found on Tara’s blog: Food and Other Things. Amazing!
Plus, I made my first batch of kale chips! Taste way better than they sound! All you have to do is wash the kale and dry it well. Lay flat on wax paper on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and add some salt. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 15 minutes or until crunchy but not brown. Perfection.
Another really simple veggie recipe: cook a few shoshito peppers in olive oil and salt over medium heat until they are browned. Eat whole. Sooooo good!
I also recently made a spicy egg dish with those purple and white peppers I bought. Fun fact, when you cook purple peppers they turn green! Who knew! I added in some Laughing Cow Queso Fresco and Chipotle cheese, jalapenos, salsa and avocado for a very yummy breakfast!
As promised yesterday (and in about 5 million other posts recently), I have a new Zumba video for you!! Yay! The only problem with this one is that I had a cooldown song all planned and ready to film. I started filming it and the battery to my camera died. Plus, I didn’t have my charger with me at the time! #MajorBloggerFAIL! But not to worry, I was able to film the entire cardio sequence without a hitch (oh thank my lucky stars!).
So here’s the deal:
· This is 30+ minute routine, perfect for days when you are short on time but want a great sweat.
· You NEED to do your own cooldown and stretch at the end!
· It’s non-stop so try not to push pause and keep moving!
· If you don’t know what you’re doing/I’m doing then just shake what your mama gave you!
· This was taken from ZIN 42. As requested here is the playlist:
o Pa’que to Bailen Bien (Cumbiaton)
o Del Puente Pa’alla (Salsa)
o Rumba en Moscu (Russian Folk)
o Intentalo (Me Pende) (Tribal)
o Fiesta Buena (Latin Hip-Hop/Dance)
o Corazoncito Bonito (Bachata/Merengue)
o Move Ya Body (Hip Hop)
o Give it Up (Champeta/Soca)
o Sexy and I Know It (Electro House)

Readers, do you have any great veggie recipes? Back to my first question, what have you been eating lately?
oh i lovvve grilled shoshito peppers! so good! ive been doing a lot of veggie strifry-ing lately. lots of mushrooms, onions, peppers, broccoli, brussels sprouts, that sort of thing. and thats such a great video! i jumped around a bit to get the gist of the different moves in zumba and it looks SO fun!!
Must make those shoshito peppers! so easy and they look delish. Recently have been consuming so many baby artichokes. Same deal, olive oil and salt and roast in the oven. I add parsley and a bit of lemon juice for added flavor. So yum!
I’ve been craving veggies like crazy lately. I’ve been eating them raw or roasting them in the oven. I roasted up my first kabocha squash over the weekend. It was awesome! I’m definitely going to be checking out those recipes.
That’s my first video seeing since following! Great seeing you in action. You have inspired me to post a video as a trial! I wanted to put together a course/boot camp! Best to see how it is perceived!
All of your food looks delish!
Another great video!!! I’m glad it worked out with the battery! All of that food looks amazing and I’m SO hungry right now. I love getting root veggies and just putting a little olive oil, salt and pepper and then roasting them in the oven at 450 for 30 minutes. Delicious!
