Even (former) cynics like me can’t avoid that sense of joy creeping when its fall time.
Fall here is very short, a month at best, so I try to enjoy every second of it.
Being me, enjoying most definitely means food.
My daughter texted me the other day asking for a recipe for acorn squash.
Wow.The feeling that I had done something right raising that child.overwhelming.
“Simply scrub it thoroughly, half it, drizzle some olive oil and bake till tender”.
“.And please take a picture for the blog “.
“Mom, it turned out great, I put some brown sugar on top before baking “.
( I definitely did something right with her).
“about the picture..I had to start eating it looked so good so no “just got out of the oven ” photo.
Healthy, easy, super filling, full of fiber, comforting with no downsides.amazing.
My easy version:
6 tbsp oats
1 cup boiling water
90 seconds microwave
drizzle soy milk
add 2 tbsp date spread ( home made)
1 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp ground flax seeds
1 tbsp hemp seeds
this is a Thai sweet potato coconut milk soul my neighbor brought.
And this is a vegetable soup I made, and added some dried mushrooms for a simple twist.
Add anything you like to a basic veggie soup:
Enjoy the fall fruit!!
fall grapes.here as a simple snack – with sprouted mung beans , walnuts and a drizzle of tahini.
honestly- the tahini wasn’t absolutely necessary.
classic fall fruit.
this here is an asian pear.
full of vitamins.
add some almonds and get a nutritious yummy snack.
Get out your slow cookers!!
Don’t have one?get one.this is a cheap useful device.I am almost positive that if you ask around your family , someone will admit that he or she can give you the spair one that has been lying around.
Bake beens in the slow cooker.
Then pre boil them till almost tender.
Then transfer to the slow cooker , add olive oil, condiments of choice, and let cook for 6-7 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high.
