My new favorite fast food–spring rolls with peanut sauce.

April 14, 2010

Still no lettuce, but lots of good veggies.  It was time to make portable food for lunch and dinner–eat in the car kind of food.  While it isn’t hard to buy spring rolls already made, they often have meat or tofu, which aren’t part of the cleanse or my diet. I decided to make my own. They are so easy and yummy!  And portable. And inexpensive!  And everyone can choose what they want in their own spring roll.  I love it when everyone gets to “have it their way”.

The peanut sauce can be modified easily to fit your taste and to not run down your arm while you are eating it:)

Still feeling great, lots of energy and ready to enjoy some really good, gooey cheesy tex-mex soon!  And a glass of wine. Looking forward to a big get together soon at a favorite Mexican food restaurant.  Suggestions for THE BEST place in Austin to eat gooey, cheesy Tex-Mex?

Continuing with the brief presence of lettuce

Ok, so lettuce once again appeared on the menu, but only in passing.  It was once again time for a junk food fix–but of course, it had to be healthy junk food (is that an oxymoron?!) so, what could be better than Mexican food.  Yep, good old fashioned tex-mex.  But easy and healthy and inexpensive which are all really good things on a Saturday after cleaning house all day.

So, Chalupas and spanish rice–yum. So easy and so filling.

Sunday was one of my favorite comfort food days–kale with chickpeas and nuts over mashed potatoes and fruit salad.  Easy, so good for you and I love the creaminess of the potatoes with the wonderful rich taste of the kale.

This cleanse has been so easy.  While we did add a little cheese to the chalupas, with the avocado it was creamy and rich enough i would have been just as happy to leave it off.  And, I feel really good.
