Ahh, weekends are so nice. I did my share of relaxing/laying around today, and have managed to pepper in some wonderful food. Upon waking, I laid in bed for 45 minutes and read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I’m only about 70 pages in, but I’m already intrigued. When I crawled out of bed, I was craving something creamy.

I whipped up a version of Katie’s raw cheesecake and poured it over some Greek yogurt. It didn’t feel complete without a few chocolate chips, so those were added, too. To make my version of the raw cheesecake:

  • ¼ cup almonds
  • ½ frozen banana (about 50g)
  • 1 tbs. water
  • 5 vanilla drops
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Put the almonds and water in the food processor and blend until smooth
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients

It’s that easy. It tasted like heaven draped over the creamy yogurt. I let Punky lick the food processor clean and she loved it, too. After breakfast, I just laid around. I was feeling a little under the weather, so I opted to talk on the phone to my best friend and watch TV rather than go for my typical Saturday morning run. Lunchtime was here before I knew it, and I wanted something savory. Seeing as my savory-loving-taste-buds rarely make themselves known, I fully embraced the craving.

Delicious: spinach, roasted potatoes, egg, salsa, and some buried hummus

Meeker got home from work and started in on some laborious yard work – which made me feel lazy, so I went for a walk/run. In total, I probably moved about 6 miles, and I felt so much better afterwards. I came home and fixed my hard-working scuzzband some steak/potatoes/eggs. He was a happy boy.

For dinner, I was still on that savory kick, so I started with a pizza.

flatout wrap with tomato paste and cheese, popped under the broiler for about 4 minutes.

Then, a big huge salad.

Lettuce, carrots, edamame, a few potato chunks (leftover), celery and ranch dressing.

I like salad. I also like chocolate, but we didn’t have anything but cocoa powder in the house, so I created an insanely quick and delicious raw dessert to end the meal.

Into the food processor (don’t worry, I cleaned after Punky’s taste-testing earlier) went:

  • ½ frozen banana
  • 3 medjool dates
  • 1 handful of almonds
  • 1 tbs. cocoa powder

It was so creamy and delicious! It made about ½ cup of mush, but it was so rich that I only ate a few bites before storing the rest in the refrigerator. I know it will be a perfect addition to my breakfast in the morning.

I hope you are all having beautiful Saturdays!
