healthy eats!

… I know I was posting last year some ‘o this good stuff … healthier foods/drinks etc., that w/ my running became an integral part of whom I am in the here and now … my, in the grand scheme of things effort becoming a healthier (better too) human if you will! Tiff found the recipe on one of her many foodie sites; is the second time I’ve made it this week. I love salads, especially tasty-good-for-you-salads … chick peas, lentils, radishes … drizzled & tossed w/ a lemon, dill, dijon, garlic, vinaigrette … so mothereffing awesome!!

AND blackened skin, blackened skin y’all! Much to delicate to attempt flippin’ on the grill. Cook on indirect high heat, and when you see it start to ooze its juices, that’s your cue – have your fish spatula at the ready … nothing worse than overcooked fish!

… now, that’s what I’m talkin’ ’bout

“I don’t know what it is, but something doesn’t smell right” – concerned Sobeys customer

… “Yeah, it was the salad” – unconcerned Sobeys employee. It’s never been on my list of go to stores. Allow me to politely and delicately explain. I find the clientele to consist of people I normally don’t see shopping in other grocery stores … a store where patrons proudly sport socks ‘n sandals like it’s nobody’s business. Can’t even tell you the number of times I’ve seen women with big-ass hair rollers pushing their buggies (I know who you are – have you no shame, lol?), parading about as they would if they were home alone, out of view of scrutinizing eyes. Newsflash Nellie: ya ain’t, lol! But this stench of spoiled food, Sobeys salad gone bad saga (and I ain’t exaggerating – that shit REEKED) wafting through-out store was the final straw … but not before I plugged my nose, quickly grabbed groceries I came to get, paid and vamoosed … THEN, it was the last straw!! 😛

Grilled Greek

Sometimes pics don’t do the food justice. This is one of those times. Slightly pounded, then marinated chicken breasts … grilled them over hot coals to blacken them. Also grilled the green bean, tomato, and onion salad. And yes, I know I’m feta-heavy, but I REALLY REALLY love my feta, lol. A few pics y’all!!

Roasted green bean, cremini, & grape tomato salad!

LOVE roasting veggies, this one’s easy peasy … and healthy as hell to boot. First snip, then wash the beans (and tomatoes), wipe clean the creminis with a mushroom brush (or a damp paper towel), then slice in half … season it all liberally with sea salt and freshly ground pepper (oh, I also threw in a few cloves of smashed garlic for added flavour, which I later removed after roasting). Liberally splash with olive oil and toss till coated … evenly spread on a parchment lined baking sheet, and throw into a 450° oven, and half an hour later Bob’s yer uncle!! A coupla pics, enjoy!
