And to deal with this, i started another blog!
I have been asked A LOT of questions about food lately and I have also been doing a fair amount of research and experiments in this area.
But I do not want to clog this blog with all that food stuff, so here is a taste of what you can find on Food On Bike!!
Tomorrow I will have add a Mobile Upload of a dessert Sushi roll i had last night. Devine...
But for now...
I really like food. I am consumed with finding ways to make edible and desirable food that doesn't make me squishy, that gives me the highest caloric bang for the buck, and is healthy.
That day i spent sitting in the Looney Bean Coffee shop in Mammoth, where i was supposed to be reading, but instead was double-fisting a Grande Coffee and a Grande Chai, not to mention the small coffee on the window sill i got for buying a bag of beans...I met this chap named Brian.
He told me about this!
All natural ingredients
Med Jule Dates (don't forget to take the pits out)
Put them in a food processor until they are pretty fine
Put into pie pan like you would a graham cracker crust
Chill over night
Next time, i may try baking it for 10 minutes
Raw cashews - soak in water AT LEAST 8 hours or MORE. Drain
Put it all into a food processor
I added a little agave nectar
Put into crust
Chill for a few hours
I put a garnish of strawberries because bananas change color!!
SUPER good!! i may try apricot in the crust next time, or silken tofu instead of cashews in the middle. Definately try it! It has a huge anti-oxidant punch!!
Its a little on the raw side, but if you are really cutting back on the sugars, this is a great option. Dates are a great option, but PRICEY! Dang!
While you eagerly await my next food post, which is already started, check out these blogs.
