Eats Lately + A New Zumba Video!

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

 Polenta and veggies

This totally wonderful panko-crusted caprese eggplant recipe that I found on Tara’s blog: Food and Other Things.  Amazing!

 Panko Crusted Caprese Eggplant

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.

 Kale chips

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!

 Shoshito peppers

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!  

Eggs with peppers

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)

·         AND HAVE FUN! 🙂

Readers, do you have any great veggie recipes?  Back to my first question, what have you been eating lately?

    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!

      They are really yummy. I’ve had them at restaurants before but never really saw them at the supermarket. Ohhhh baby artichokes! That’s a good one. I just saw some the other day. Will have to try!

    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.

    Love the Zumba video!

    I need to be much better about eating veggies….I’m still a 5 year old in that department.

    I love love LOVE your videos!

      I am finding that when my veggies are really fresh, I’m inspired to eat them. When they are the frozen kind, I’m much more likely to reach for something not so healthy to compensate.

    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!

    I had no idea that purple peppers turn green when they’re cooked. All of that fresh produce is gorgeous and it looks like you really put it to good use.

    That sucks about your battery dying, I hate when that happens! Good thing you got the cardio part done.

    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!
