Necessities

Posted Jul 27 2010 11:23pm

We all have them. Those food items that you would run to the store in the middle of the night to buy. The favorites that you just can’t live without. Here are a few of mine:

Avocado
We ALWAYS have avocados on hand. Could there be anything more delightful? They are the ultimate power food…and we all love them. We eat them on salads, salted on sprouted bread, plain, on curries…you name it. Avocado was both Bella and Lucy’s first food. Yum yum.

Raw Goat Milk Cheese
This is not the soft goat cheese that you might be thinking of…we get the raw cheddar cheese and we eat A LOT of it. It’s more spendy ($6.99 for a small block)…but it’s so worth it because we don’t do cow’s milk cheese around here most of the time. If you’ve never had it, you’ll be surprised at how wonderful it is! Even when we’re eating mostly raw, we keep this cheese in to satisfy cravings.

Justin’s Nut Butters
Oh.My.Goodness. Love it. Maple is our favorite . We top our brown rice cakes with it. We put it in our oatmeal. We like to scoop it right out with a spoon. No, it’s not raw…but it’s darn good. They also make them in little travel packets . So handy dandy. They are based out of Boulder…I might have to go take a photo of their headquarters while we’re here. I love them that much.

Green smoothies
These are a staple around here. We are still making them almost morning…we can’t go too long without one or we feel it! And yes, I am planning another Green Smoothie Challenge. Don’t ask me dates…but I’m hoping to do it soon! So get ready :)

Watermelon
Crave it. The smell. The sweetness. Love it. We eat LARGE bowls of it in the summertime, sometimes having entire meals of just watermelon.

Citron Oolong
This is easily my favorite tea. I have it nearly every morning. Just the smell will amaze you. Excellent hot or iced.

Steel Cut Oats
This is a recent addition to our favorites. The texture is similar to brown rice. Chewy, nutty, and delicious. Iwe like to top it with bananas, almond butter, walnuts or hemp seeds, maple syrup, and almond milk.

Iced Tea
We’ve been drinking OOODLES of iced tea around here. I’m loving the Celestial Seasonings tropical “cool brew” as well as their blueberry green tea. I love to mix and match my flavors…it’s like making a cocktail! :)

So there you have it. A short list of the foods and drinks that we’re loving right now. What’s on YOUR list?
