OF Day 8 and 9 -
Last night for supper we tried a new recipe - it was on the Ten Thousand Villages international calendar we picked up for the kitchen.Each month has a recipe from around the world...and this was so good. It was fresh and filling and delicious - we had them with homemade burgers (no bun for me) and it was a great reward for a great workout.
Pineapple Avocado Salad (African recipe)
-2 avocados, cut up small
-4 slices pineapple diced up small (about 1 cup canned pineapple pieces)
-2 generous T of cottage cheese
-Handful of cashews diced up
-dressing:1-2T lime juice, ~1/2 T olive oil and 1/4 t paprika, with salt and pepper to taste. Mix up and pour on and stir it all together well. Let it sit in the fridge for a bit to mix flavours (I made mine before class to eat after). It keeps the avocados from browning and adds a fresh taste.
To serve tear up a few leaves of romaine and place the salad on top. Grate a bit of fresh pepper on it and dig in.
Nom. Totally making this regularly. No pictures because I was too damn hungry after class to remember to take one and too rushed beforehand getting between work and class. Tabata is at 6 right after work for an hour so I don't eat until almost 730 on wednesdays...
Gotta run. Time to go be sciencey. Just wanted to log....
