I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

Tiff’s Vitamix Haul!!

… y’all!! All from Costco. Picked up frozen mangoes, AND pineapple chunks (said, she read about them on my friend’s blog – thanks for the tip), AND she was lucky to get some more Chia (she sprinkles that shit on EVERYTHING, lol) … stuff is pricey too, bag cost almost $18, ain’t even organic like what we have on hand, AND the golden organic flaxseed I bought which is organic was only $2.99/lb … add this to our frozen bananas and strawberries, as well as apples (we ALWAYS have apples in the house) and dates, PLUS whatever else we buy during the week, I’d say we’re all set … it’s all smoothie sailing from here …

kale ‘n garlic

… along with rapini … my favourite greens, hands down! Very healthy, and easy to prepare/make too. I grab the bunch, and chop off the bottom (thicker) stalks/stems … wash and rinse 3-4 times quickly, shaking off excess water, yet leaving it wet … heat up my pot, add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil and throw in the kale. You can immediately hear it crackle as the cool, watery leaves interact with the hot oil … season liberally with salt, black pepper and put a lid on it. A few minutes later when it’s wilted somewhat, I add the slivered garlic (I find they’ll burn if I add them along with the kale), allowing them to get golden, by that time it’s all done. All that remains is the plating, and tossing on a few chili flakes too. Enjoy!!
