Lately all I’ve wanted are roasted veggies, with nary a salad craving in sight. I find it fascinating that my body automatically adjusts to the seasons. (Wow, I’m such a nerd.) Since it’s important to listen to your body, I’ve been roasting everything on which I can get my chocolate-covered hands: brussels sprouts, mushrooms, onions, cauliflower, asparagus…
Last night’s dinner included an entire forest of roasted broccoli trees. (Did your mom call them “trees” too?)
With garlic-y sautéed red peppers. I also had two slices of Rudi’s bread. I lightly toasted the bread, then poured the liquid from the sautéed peppers over the top. Ohmygosh sooooooooooo good! It made the toast all soft and soggy. Dreamy! (Can toast be dreamy?)
Summer or Winter, my body is always craving chocolate. So I engaged in some chocolate-covered nighttime snackage:
And the strawberries on the side threatened to take over the plate. But let’s go back to the chocolate for a sec: People often ask if eating chocolate at night keeps me awake, due to the caffeine. It doesn’t seem to, which is strange, considering how much coffee does affect me. If I drink coffee even around 3 or 4 pm, I’ll have a heck of a time falling asleep that night. Good thing coffee’s not really my cup of… errr coffee.
