This month I haven’t been able to get enough rice cakes! They are so delicious, and I love how they only have ONE ingredient: rice! I’ve been getting the Full Circle Organic Rice Cakes (unsalted) and have been either just eating them plain, crumbling them up to put onto of things, or smashing a banana ontop. They are such a good base for just about anything; jam, fruit, hummus, or nut butter.
At the beginning of the month my mom and I took a trip to the Grand Asian Market in Cary and I fell in love! I had never really enjoyed Asian cuisine, but once I had the “proper” ingredients I’ve really enjoyed incorporating Asian foods into my diet. I’ve been making sushi (without the fish) every so often, and also made a really delicious miso soup. The Grand Asian Market also had a really good selection of teas, so I’ve really been enjoying those as well (especially chamomile green tea).

So here is another favorites post, where I basically try really really hard to choose my top five favorites….this time it’s vegetables.

Sometimes, when I really want to get to know someone I ask them what their top five favorite fruits are. Most of the time, they think I’m crazy…but it is a completely appropriate question, or at least I think it is. So I’m going to answer this one so maybe you can get to know me a little better.
Disclaimer: this is one of the hardest lists for me to make, because fruit is something I literally can’t get enough of, and also its difficult for me to narrow it down to just five.
the main reason why bananas are my number one favorite fruit is because of their versatility and accessibility. they are good frozen, natural, cooked, mashed, and all of the above. also, they are super cheap and can be found most anywhere.
pro tip: wait until bananas are spotty, thats when all the starch has formed into sugars that your body can digest, causing easy and quick digestion.
