Nourishment is a beautiful thing. Living in Southern California means I have access to so many types of foods from various cultures. Stepping aside from beauty & fashion, today I want to get into something very special to me — food. Food is something everyone has in common; we all eat! Today is all about food I'm grubbing on right now, essentially foods that I am totally in love with at the moment. If you missed the last discussion on food, check out my latest post from the Feed Me series: Trying Food from Around the World.
Chickpea Chips - The first thing on my grub list is something I love making as a snack. It's something I like to call chickpea chips. I'm still perfecting the recipe, but once I do I'll share it with you guys. Basically you take garbanzo beans & bake them in the oven until they become crispy. You can add any seasoning you want & it's a delicious alternative to your average chips. Bonus points because they're filled with fiber & protein.
Rainbow Carrots - Let's be real for a moment. How stunning are these organic rainbow carrots?!? I get such a kick out of using them because they completely change the look of any dish with carrots. I spotted them at the grocery store & they were the same price as regular carrots. I figured I might as will mix it up & I haven't turned back. I've been using these for about a month now. According to this Time article, these colored carrots have different nutrients to help with digestion, heart disease, & more.
Gordita - As I've mentioned a few times, my boyfriend is Mexican. Sometimes his mom surprises us with some honest to goodness genuine Mexican cuisine. It's a joy to have & I've been spoiled because no other Mexican food beats hers. This is a gordita, essentially a masa or corn pattycake. You could sort of think of it as a very thick tortilla. This gordita is topped with eggs, green chilies, tomato, & green onion. Yum!
Which of these foods I'm grubbing on right now looks the best to you? Have you ever tried any of these? What are YOU grubbing on? :]
