Pitaya Bowl

If it’s hot out, like really hot out, you can bet on the fact that I’m having a smoothie bowl for breakfast or lunch. It’s quick, delish and most importantly cold. I can just grab a few thing from the freezer, which is quite convenient, chuck it in my blender and two minutes later I’m eating. Instant gratification. I zhuzhed things up a bit with some fresh mint, coconut shreds and coconut milk. The more coconut the better! In all honesty I typically just make this as a smoothie and drink it at my desk, but sometimes I gotta make things look a little more interesting…ya know, for the blog.

Seared Bok Choy

We like greens around here and generally have them as much as possible, but in all honesty, salads and sautéed greens can get slightly boring over time.

I saw a recipe for charred cabbage in bon appétit a few months ago, and figured I might as well try it out. It was, of course, delish.  So, as soon as I saw some of these plump, baby bok choy available I knew exactly how I was cooking them.

Peanut Chicken

I’m not a massive fan of peanut butter, I like it in savory stuff like this peanut chicken and curries, but I’m typically not someone who is frequently enjoying a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It may be the fact that this peanut sauce is made with a good bit of coconut milk that makes me like it so much, since you already know I love anything coconut, but I can slather, top or drizzle this on anything, and I typically do. This sauce recipe typically makes enough that I have at least 1/4 cup or more leftover for the next day where I’ll use it to top some cold noodles, dress a salad, or just dip some cucumber slices into it. It’s good with anything.
