i love sundays because i put away all my work and relax…enjoy life…cook…garden…have spontaneous fun. we all need more days like these. my family and i planted an organic garden last sunday. we filled it will tomatoes, watermelon, five different kinds of peppers, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, grapes, berries and cream mint, coconut thyme, cilantro…and that doesn’t even break the surface. it has already survived a crazy hail storm, and it is growing strong!
no-plan sundays means testing new recipes, and here is today’s line up: baked eggs, fresh flavored water, and avocado chocolate mousse. find the recipes below.
grate one medium sized sweet potato. chop an onion. prepare a bowl of spinach. in a skillet, sautee the sweet potato and onion in coconut oil (or your oil of choice), salt, and pepper for five to seven minutes. add spinach for the last minute or two. place mixture in a glass bowl. crack 2-4 eggs on top. bake at 350F for 15-20 minutes depending on how cooked you like your eggs.
fresh flavored water: the warm weather staple.
you need 1 large cucumber, 2 lemons, and one large orange. peel the cucumber and slice. thinly slice the lemon and orange. place in a large pitcher. add fresh mint leaves for extra refreshment. add water. let the flavors settle for an hour. enjoy, and keep adding water!
avocado chocolate mouse- the perfect dessert. (the guys LOVE it)
don’t be scared. cut open 2 large avocados and spoon them out into a bowl. beat until the avocado is a creamy mouse-like consistency. add 1/2 cup of 100% cocoa. add 3/4 cup agave nectar. add 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract. beat until all ingredients are mixed evenly. serve immediately, or refrigerate and serve later. happy sunday!
