Homemade Nut Butters And Ten Tips To Tweet

Posted on April 16, 2010. Filed under: Book Review, Daily Update | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Thanks for all the great veggie burger suggestions; keep them coming! I’ve got a whole slew of brands to look for next time I go to Whole Foods and can’t wait to find some fun flavors. I’m also loving the recipe suggestions. I didn’t even think of making my own! For the remaining time at school, I don’t see that happening. But over the Summer it sounds like a fun project.

Sweet Utopia

Sweet Utopia

Last night, my entertainment was Survivor, old SNL skits, and reading some of Sweet Utopia which I mentioned I was sent from Books Publishing Co. to review. I like how it didn’t jump in to recipes but laid out what a vegan kitchen should have and everything that’s going to be called for in this book. What I wasn’t a fan of was the overemphasis on everything vegan; I think I’d rather be wowed by a recipe and look back in hindsight thinking “that was vegan?!” than be convinced going in these recipes will be “different”. I only got 2 recipes in after all of that, but one definitely struck my eye as the most decadent chocolate cake I could think of and I can’t wait to make it some time soon.

Green & Black's Cherry Dark Chocolate Bar

There’s so few joys in life lesser than opening up a new bar of chocolate and seeing the shiny tin foil.

I snacked on 20 squares Green & Black’s cherry dark chocolate while watching Survivor. I’ve had this a lot on Greek yogurt but not so much on its own. Eating it like this made me realize how intense the cherries were in flavor. Wow! I bet that also means they’re packed with antioxidants, just like the dark chocolate? Yeah, we’ll call this one healthy.

Organic Cripps Pink Apple

Organic Cripps Pink Apple

We picked up a few organic apples on sale at Whole Foods before I moved back in to the dorm. I didn’t care so much that they were organic that they were fresh; eating this definitely made me feel better than eating one sitting in the cafeteria for who knows how long.

Chocolate Pecan Butter Ingredients

Chocolate Pecan Butter Ingredients

I got a fun idea in my head watching SNL reruns: chocolate pecan butter. Don’t you love it? I just took a scoop of my homemade pecan butter, some cocoa powder, and vanilla agave and a touch of sea salt.

Oatmeal With Chocolate Pecan Butter And Coconut Milk

Oatmeal With Chocolate Pecan Butter And Coconut Milk

Yum! I think this could be called German’s Chocolate Cake oatmeal; it was that good. The sea salt was definitely the touch that made the chocolate flavor more pronounced, as with the coconut milk. I can’t believe how long this batch is lasting! I tell ya: if you move it to a plastic, seal-tight container in the fridge, it stays fresh a lot longer.

10 Miles In 89:29

10 Miles In 89:29

I knew I’d be running inside since rain was in the forecast, so I wanted to get up early and run at the gym. Still, I knew I needed to rest, and resisted setting the alarm. After enough sleep(sleep bores me), I hit the gym for 10 miles a bit later than usual. Apparently, the later crowd does not have the same TV preferences as the earlier people. I’m referencing the girl who changed The Today Show to 16 And Pregnant. Really? Really?

Oatmeal With White Chocolate Almond Butter And Coconut Milk, Strawberry Vanilla Yogurt, Vitabears

Oatmeal With White Chocolate Almond Butter And Coconut Milk, Strawberry Vanilla Yogurt, Vitabears

Breakfast was filled with flavors of Spring and Summer: vanilla, strawberry, coconut, almond. This was actually all inspired by my favorite white chocolate bar, and was a good substitute short of eating that for breakfast. The yogurt was plain Greek sweetened with Madhava’s vanilla agave and Crofter’s organic strawberry conserves

Raw Almond Butter With Fair Trade White Chocolate With Strawberries

Raw Almond Butter With Fair Trade White Chocolate With Strawberries

This is an almond butter I made over Winter break. It has raw, organic almonds and pieces of my favorite white chocolate bar, which is fair trade and has bits of strawberries in it. I think the vitamin bears wanted a taste 😉

Do you ever feel like for every Twitter follower you gain, you lose 2 more? Well, the good news is some of those are just people who follow you hoping to be followed back who then go back and unfollow. I wouldn’t worry about them. But you might also be doing things to genuinely annoy people. I know I have, and am in no way touting perfection righting this list. If anything, it’s a bit of self realization on places to improve. If nothing else, it was educational and comical. Enjoy!

  1. Don’t tweet every little thought that comes to your mind. “I wish my portable laptop had a portable toilet” may sound  cute, but someone on the other end is probably saying to themselves “What were they thinking?!”
  2. If you’re conversing with someone in particular, put @theirtwitID first. This way, only people who follow both of you will see the relevant conversation. If it’s really personal, direct message.
  3. Care about who follows you. Don’t just follow to be followed.
  4. Retweet! People follow you because they have the same interests as you. If you find something to your liking, share it.
  5. NOT EVERYTHING NEEDS TO BE SHOUTED!!!!!
  6. Cap your tweets. No one wants their Home to be filled with one face.
  7. There are other ways to communicate with people close to you. If you know someone well, use the phone to tell them what to add to the grocery list. Not Twitter.
  8. A Twitpic says a thousand words, which is useful when Twitter only lets you type 140
  9. Use #hashes and trending topics to get your voice in a stream of people with the same thing on their mind.
  10. Shortened words and syncopated grammar for space reasons is understandable. Misspelling and wrong grammar just looks poor.

I Need A BIG Cookie

Posted on January 3, 2010. Filed under: Daily Update | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Sometimes you need a cookie. Othertimes, you need a COOKIE. I think I turned in to this guy this afternoon:

After lunch my dad took me on a drive through the snow to the little all-natural store with bulk bins nearby. I needed to stock up on some almonds and we browsed a bit while we were there. My eyes definitely kept turning to those huge, oversugary, amazing all-natural cookies by the counter(same brands as at Whole Foods). I couldn’t, however, bring myself to pay that much for a cookie, when I know we have a ton at home, so instead I picked up another foodie find.

Xanthan Gum

Xanthan Gum

I must be an alien because now I have Xanthan gum in my pantry. After seeing all the wonders Heather has whipped up with this stuff, I can’t wait to get to “playing” with it. When we got home, my mind was still on cookies. I didn’t want any of the cookies we had for one reason: they were wimpy. I wanted a size-of-my-face cookie that was rich and buttery and felt like a bad, naughty thing. Naturally, I whipped some up. I made a cookie recipe that otherwise I’d portion into 18, but this time made into 6.

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies

The recipe I whipped up in my head and was rather simple for a chocolate chip cookie. I’ll write up the actual recipe soon with some tweaks I think might improve them, too.

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

Basically, this entirely hit the spot. It was rich and delicious, sweet but not so sweet as to overpower the butter(or vegan butter), and filled with chocolate chips. The texture was a little too cakey but besides that I thought I’d died and gone to cookie monster heaven. After that recipe, I roasted up 12 1/2 ounces of almonds while the oven was on, and whipped up some new almond butter with flax seeds and a special ingredient.

New Almond Butter

Care to know what the secret ingredient was?…

Kahlua

You know I don’t drink, but what goes in my nut butters I’m saying is a thing on its own 😉 I won’t say how much I used, but that jar has some serious proofage on it, because it was taking a lot to get it to a butter consistency and I eventually got frustrated and just added a lot of liquid.

French Toast Almonds

With the other half of the almonds, I made one of my mom’s favorite things. They came out fine except some stuck too much to the wax paper I’m afraid. Other than that, making your own nuts is so simple and so much fun! Around then we got a call from some friends to meet them to see Avatar in 3D after dinner. I’m not so much a spontaneous person but I thought sure, why not? This, however, did not put me in the mood for a “normal” dinner.

Pumpkin Oatmeal With French Toast Hazelnut Butter, Banana Yogurt With Pecan Butter

Maybe it was the threat of not having time for oatmeal later, or maybe I just needed some fats in me because I hadn’t eaten, but I was craving me some nut butters(not a cookie monster anymore, apparently). I added a little xanthan gum to the yogurt to thicken it up–I can tell I’m going to have fun with that 🙂

When we got to the imax, Avatar was unfortunately sold out 😦 Eventually, our friends showed up, and we decided to go to a regular theater to see what’s playing. Apparently, we missed the start of everything by 20 minutes or so there, too, so we were plum out of luck. We decided to take a rain check on the whole thing, and now I’m back home, blogging, and drowning sorrows in amaretto… sort of. You’ll see tomorrow .

Fusions

Posted on December 28, 2009. Filed under: Daily Update | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Somethings were just meant to be: Peanut Butter and Jelly, Lucy and Ricky, Me and Emma Watson, Ross and Rachel–the list goes on and on. And the truth is that these pairs work better together more than on their own. So yesterday I was looking for things that worked better together than on their own.

Pecan Butter With Cashews

My first inspiration came from Artisana’s Pecan Butter. I really enjoyed the hint of cashews in this to make it more of an artisan nut butter so I thought I’d try to replicate that with the pecans I picked up from the natural food store and some Oh Nuts! cashews. I won’t reveal the “secret” ratio but I think this came out damn good and would get a 10/10 from my own scale. I will reveal that I roasted them all so the flavor would be more pungent, but I didn’t add any salt.

Butterscotch Peanut Butter

Butterscotch and peanut butter are definitely another flavor combo that was meant to be. I think Kath would agree with the number of times I’ve seen butterscotch chips on her oatmeal. For this I used 16oz raw peanuts I dry roasted, more butterscotch extract than I’d care to know, stevia, and 4 teaspoons brown sugar. The flavor is definitely unique; it’s not my favorite but it seems like one of those I might randomly crave at some point. After I played around on nutritiondata.com, it was time for dinner.

Thai Curry Chickpeas With Hot Sauce, Brussels Sprouts, Buffalo Bleu Chips

I think Frank’s Red Hot sauce + anything is amazing(as attested by multiple bloggers around here). My mouth was on fire after all of this. There was also lemon-thyme salmon on the table but a) I didn’t think the lemon-thyme and hot sauce would work and b) I didn’t feel like having meat this meal.

After dinner, as disgusting as it was, I was determined to find the receipt for the food processor so that I can work at getting a non-broken one. It just so happened to be in the same bag of trash which my mom threw out ALL of her receipts from balancing her checkbook. This was really like finding a needle in a haystack but we got it.

Macy's Receipt

A little worse from ware but proof is proof. I think I continued to wash my hands for another 20 minutes to get off the coffee grounds and tofu, and then turned on I Love Lucy and picked up more fusion food.

Xocai Nugget And Power Square

Obviously, chocolates bestie is more chocolate, so I tried out Xocai’s nugget and power square. If you want to get technical, both of these are also fused with dried acai berries to increase their ORAC value, but really chocolate is chocolate. I liked these, but surprisingly they weren’t dark enough for me at the time. They tasted like a good 55% but I was expecting them to be more bitter-sweet. After a few good I Love Lucy episodes(a timeless show), I found more fusion in the kitchen.

Barney butter And Peach Amaretto Jam

Oatmeal With Barney Butter And Peach Amaretto Jam

These were soooo meant to be together. The jam was a Christmas present to my parents and is unreal; it has so much amaretto flavor! And it’s totally giving me ideas for more nut butters. The Barney Butter oddly separated in the squeeze pack so half was really hard and have was liquid. At least it still tasted OK. Lastly I had a 2nd daily probiotic source and hit the hay.

Pop Culture Chocolate Chip Granola Bar

This morning I must have been lazy because I slept in 40 minutes. It is vacation, after all 🙂 But then I got “in the mood” for a good workout. I did my core with

  • 240 varying arm rotations
  • 5 sets of 7 chair swings
  • 40 squats(thinking back, I might have forgotten this one)
  • 70 rowers’ arms
  • 40 second pose hold
  • 70 standing marches
  • 100 sit ups
  • 100 air kicks
  • 70 tricep dips
  • 70 side crunches, both sides
  • 100 crunches
  • 50 second crunch hold
  • 40 push-ups(a little messy by this point)

After that I threw in 100 flights of stairs, which took about 30 minutes but flew by to some good ipod tunes. After that I knew exactly what was on the menu for breakfast.

Vegan Cinnamon Raisin Roll With Pecan Butter And Brown Sugar Vegan Butter Spread

Peanut Flour Yogurt

Pecan butter, earth balance, and brown sugar were most definitely all meant to co-exist(We are the woooorrld. We are the futurrre). I’ve come to think there is nothing better than to be able to think “I’m eating homemade pecan butter” and know it’s your home that made it! Now I just need to figure out how to homemake a cinnamon roll. Peanut flour and greek yogurt were equally meant to be for a 1-2 protein punch. Today’s agenda most definitely includes a trip to Macy’s to try and get a new food processor piece, and hopefully addressing 1 or 2 recipes on my to-do list.

Playing Blogger Catchup

Posted on December 27, 2009. Filed under: Daily Update | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Sometimes the day after Christmas can be just as exciting as the real thing itself. I started like any teenage boy the day after a present haul: playing my new wii game for an hour. Thank God for no responsibilities 🙂 By 8 at least I wasn’t the only one up so I started getting things done. Eventually, I worked up a breakfast that would get things out of the house.

Chocolate Mint Brownie Yogurt

Pumpkin Oatmeal In A Mighty Maple Jar With Monkey Boy Peanut Butter

I think that’s going to be a theme this week: eating to make room. We have so many leftovers! I secretly love it 🙂 The brownies and yogurt was so so good; I love chocolate mint and that creamy texture so much. And since the yogurt was sweetened with stevia and the brownie erithrytol it was all naturally low sugar, too(ergo I could make out this was a “healthy” breakfast. The oats in a jar were long awaited and a perfect touch. I had hoped on getting out, cashing some checks, and doing shopping before lunch but I’m definitely the faster movie in this house and that did not end up happening. Instead, I made a breakfast of comfort foods.

Asparagus, Thinly Sliced Spoon Roast, Whole Wheat Mac N' Cheese

I may have steamed the asparagus too long, but they were still nice. The spoon roast really had to be eaten a few days ago and for some reason I had steak and mac n’ cheese in my mind. The best thing about a kitchen scale is definitely being able to portion out individual servings of the instant stuff from a family size box before cooking it(because, if I made the thing, I could definitely put it all away, too :-)).

Eventually, we did get rolling. First up was Target to use up some gift certificates. Did anybody else get a singing one from Target? They’re cute, but they’re about 1/2 an inch thick. And I got 3 of them. Can you imagine the wallet disaster that is? I was able to use up 2 and transfer what remained on the last one to a normal gift card. After that we went to the mall to return some stuff where I only was able to score more gift certificates 😦 And then to Macy’s to exchange my mini food processor for this.

Black & Decker Food Processor

I think I hit upon a mac daddy of food processors! It ended up costing me $43 more but I think it will be entirely worth it. Banana soft serve, chocolate avocado pudding, raw cashew cookies, my own nut butters! Really–this is opening doors. After that I grabbed a quick drink.

Yumberry Pomegranate Lifewater

And then we were off to Whole Foods. I asked for chocolate for Christmas but not a single square wound up in my stocking 😦 I planned on getting a milk chocolate bacon bar which I’ve been wanting to splurge on since the Summer but they were all out 😦 😦 I’m sure I’ll find it next time because the man said he’d order some for me(though I’ll probably just go to a different Whole Foods that I know always carries them).

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bar

I grabbed my favorite “candy bar”. Seriously–these are too good to be healthy. When I got home it was time to put away my new “toys”(though I bet I’ll be breaking the food processor out pretty soon to play with).

Marvel T-Shirt, Dark Chocolate Raspberry Chocolate Bar, Season 1 I Love Lucy

From Target I got some things on my Christmas list: a new shirt to wear/run in, chocolate, and I Love Lucy on DVD. I don’t know why, but lately I’ve been so aware that this show is never on TV anymore! Shame because it’s the best, don’t you agree?

My mom decided she needed to get out of the house for dinner. I decided I needed to stay in and eat “my food” for the first time in days. It all worked out and I got the run of the house for myself to play with. Naturally, I decided to turn to the oven and eat a meal probably no one would care about that they missed but me.

Maple Baked Tofu

Sweet Potato Maple Roasted Veggies Pie

There was definitely more maple syrup present here than at most breakfast tables because it was in the pie, on top, and all over the tofu. Scrumptious 🙂 I loved the real baked tofu; it’s 10 times more flavorful than the microwave. Unfortunately the back of the fridge froze the other half of my container and that got thrown away. And for “dessert” I had quick leftovers.

Cantaloupe With Sea Salt

Which were perfect with a little dessert fork. Tiny utensils are just the best. Christmas definitely threw me off because I had no idea it was Saturday night. But nothing ended up being on TV anyway 😦 Instead of pop in a movie I waited for parents to get home and watched Days, followed by more dessert.

Chocolate Soy Yogurt With A Peanut Butter And Chocolate Biscotti

I don’t even know how much cocoa powder and hand mixing it took to get soy yogurt that color and smooth but it was A LOT. I’ll definitely stick with plain chocolate yogurt from now on because of that and reserve soy yogurt for simpler things. These cookies still taste as good as ever. After this I was stuffed but had a HUGE craving for pecans, which I never get.

Oatmeal With Pecan Butter

This definitely put me over the top of fullness. But ’tis the season, right 😉 I can’t wait to make my own pecan butter with my food processor! I was actually planning on doing that at night, except I didn’t have any pecans… Definitely an ingredient fail.

This morning I had no motivation for anything. I stayed in bed for 40 minutes after looking outside to see the rain washed away most of the snow. Yuck. But when I felt guilty about not wanting to be active, I just kept in mind that they’ll be plenty of time for that in the future, and a day or a week or a month of pure laziness and joy should be well warranted.

Chocolate Mint Brownie Yogurt, French Toast Oatmeal

Also well warranted would be repeating the same yogurt from yesterday because it’s “healthy” and delicious and uses up leftovers. Can’t beat that logic, can you 😉 I think I need to get to making eggs the proper way again while I’m home but for the morning I like my oatmeal so this was a compromise. And now, of course, I’m looking for recipes to make with my new food processor and muffin top tins. If you have any at all, send them my way.

Would you believe the same blogger has a Newman’s giveaway, Vans Natural giveaway, Zevia giveaway, and Annie’s giveaway?

Posted on December 14, 2009. Filed under: Daily Update | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Firstly, a shout out to Goji Gourmet, launching their new products and website today!

Courtesy is a funny thing. I don’t think I have it, but neither do half the people around me so that doesn’t bug me too much. And as for the people who do have it, it makes me love them that much more 🙂

Courteous: My dad swinging by McDonalds before hitting the highway on the way back to campus. A cup of Newman’s Own Organic Decaf went perfect with this:

White Chocolate Double Chocolate Pillow

Courteous: Me leaving about 8 of these delicious renditions of double chocolate pillows to enjoy and only stealing a few for myself while freezing the rest.

Courteous: Helping me move all my stuff from the car into my room.

Not Courteous: Me practically throwing my dad out of the room so I could get my butt to the gym.

Honey Cashew YouBar

This pre-workout snack was Courteous of YouBar. YouBar is really cool in that they let you basically build your own snack/energy/protein bar, but they also have some suggested combinations for indecisive people like me who otherwise would spend 12 hours trying to pick a combo 🙂 It definitely went down fast so that I could just get running, but from the bit of taste I did get I liked the flavor; it got major points in the “stick to the roof of your mouth” category.

Not Courteous(?): My dorm-floor neighbor apparently gets very in to his eliptical training. He had his music pumping and was headbanging like crazy. Eventually he looked around, at which point I would have expected him to think “Oh, I look silly” but really what I think went through his mind was something like “Why aren’t they rocking out to the music either?” I don’t think this had anything to do with courtesy, it was just really funny to see this side of a man who otherwise I know to wash his grapes in the men’s room while wearing a collared Polo.

Not Courteous: Me hogging the treadmill even though there were people waiting and I was over the time limit of 30 minutes. But really, 30 minutes? How is anyone supposed to get distance in like that? I also got the broken treadmill which doesn’t read right for it’s pace(way under), so I’m not sure how far I *truly* ran, but it was something like 10 miles in 86 minutes. But since that would be the slowest 10 miles of my life and I was huffing and puffing, I don’t buy it.

Not Courteous: My roommate making something over the weekend in the microwave that exploded and then didn’t feel the need to clean it up. Seriously there was green stuff all over the inside. I think it was spinach from an Indian meal, but who knows. I just cleaned it up and went on my not-so-merry way.

Al Fresco Sweet Apple Chicken Sausages

Dinner was Courteous of Al Fresco. I wasn’t sure after running if I wanted a traditional post work out meal(aka breakfast) or something more like dinner; these sausages had chicken, maple syrup, and apple, so they kind of fit both bills.

Whole Foods Stuffing, Sweet Apple Chicken Sausage, Acorn Squash With Maple Syrup

Courteous: My mom freezing a ton of Whole Foods stuffing after Thanksgiving so that I could have it at a later date. If you’ve never had Whole Foods stuffing, you haven’t lived; it’s that good. And so was this sausage. You can read my review, or not because I’m not very good at explaining it. It really was a mystery even to me what made it so nice but it just felt “homey”.  Oh, and there was more maple syrup added to that acorn squash after the picture because I was having a “life’s too short” moment.

Apple

Courteous: The dining hall providing half-way decent apples. I’ll take what I can get.

Courteous: Ricky Gervais in how he’s handled becoming a rich celebrity. Did anyone else watch 60 minutes, or am I just showing my age here?

Q.bel Dark Chocolate Wafer Bars

Dessert was courteous of Q.bel. I didn’t have much expectations for this beyond a good dark chocolate; wow was I wrong. This wafer bar was soooo good. The dark chocolate coating, the cream, the wafer–yum! Such a big leap from the chocolate wafers I remember at grandma’s house as a kid.

Pumpkin Oatmeal With Pumpkin Cream Cheese, Pecan Butter, Peanut Butter Chips, And An Advent Chocolate

This pecan butter was courteous of artisana. It, too, was very good; it reminded me of pecan pie if only it had a touch of maple syrup–very rich and smooth. Even though I rated it higher than their walnut butter, I’d probably buy that sooner than this, though. This pumpkin cream cheese was just cream cheese with pumpkin and pumpkin butter as I left the real stuff back at my house.

Not Courteous: Whoever invented advent calenders. Because of him I’ve taken in 220 calories .1g of trans fat over the past 13 days(Jk about being mad 😉 This Divine advent calender is seriously some of the best milk chocolate ever).

Courteous: The Obama’s for inviting Oprah into the White House

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookie

Not Courteous: Me flaunting these and not having time to make a recipe page. I will; I promise. Even though the recipe’s not mine and I wouldn’t know who to credit it to because it’s seriously one of the oldest recipes ever(think: If Martha Washington made peanut butter cookies, she made them like this).

Courteous: Me setting my alarm back 10 minutes because I was having one of the worst night’s sleep. All of the Sunday’s I’ve come back to campus have been like this. When I went to put my contacts in at 6:30, my eyes were seriously bloodshot. It would have been more courteous if I let myself sleep in but I really wanted to get back on normal schedule.

Mocha-walla Odwalla

Courteous: All the facility people who work overnight to make this place not look like a wreck. The gym was nice and spotless(and mostly empty!) when I got there.

Not Courteous: Me insisting one of the TV’s be on Pokemon while the girl on the bike was clearly not as into it as I was. She didn’t say anything, but then again I was their first(it turned out to be a not so good episode, anyway).

Completely Unrelated: Med setting a new distance PR of 17 miles in 2:26:53 this morning. I don’t know how or why, but I was really feeling the run. I just kept going and going until I decided to aim for 17. I hit “the wall” at 15.5, but who would stop then? It feels so good to break another barrier after 16 miles. And the blister I was nervous about bursting did on the run and I totally didn’t notice it. That’s a good thing, right?

Cinnamon Raisin Greek Yogurt, Pumpkin Oatmeal With Mighty Maple And Grain Sweetened Chocolate Chips

Courteous: Me being as quiet as possible in making this breakfast. I really wanted something like gummy bears all this morning; while they do make natural and organic gummy bears, I don’t have any. Raisins are sort of like gummy bears though, so this yogurt was super yummy. Of course mighty maple and chocolate chips are always welcomed.

Courteous: Me watching Regis And Kelly Live with closed captioning so as not to disturb my roommate(but if Jeff Probst were the guest host and not Anderson Cooper that would be another story).

Courteous: You guys making it through this post all the way to the end.

A Regional Best Giveaway

And a sweet Bora Bora Island Getaway Giveaway
