Does someone have a good recipe that involves fresh whole hazelnuts? I'm trying to think up something creative.

I am so glad I have a kitchen in my room. Cafeteria food is sufficently boring and I think I will need some flavor every once in a while. I tried some of this black heirloom rice and it was dang good. You should get some. Some rice, a peach protien shake, all is good in the world.
I am now officially a college student residing in Portland. I am also lucky enough to be a college student who has a kitchen in her room. I also now live in the vegan capital of the world. Things could get interesting. Today, we went to get some voodoo donuts. Of course the classic voodoo donut and an apple fritter for later for me. Also there was a tang, chocolate coconut, blueberry, and maple donuts. Let the pictures speak.

If I were a celebrity, and I got to endorce stuff, I would definately endorce LightLife Smokey Tempeh Bacon Strips. Not only to they taste wonderful, but they are full of all sorts of good nutrients. Today, lettuce wraps. All I did was pan cook a couple of strips (no oil) then wrap 'em in lettuce with a little bit of salt and pepper. But what I would really recommend is to get leaves of iceberg lettuce, and for the filling, pancook 3 strips, chop into 1 inch pieces. Cook Jasmine, heirloom, or brown rice according to package directions, and mix about a cup with the tempeh pieces. Fill, or serve the filling and lettuce seperately to be put together at the table. Or eat them all yourself.

Apples; peeled, cut in half cored, and chopped again into equal size bits
(I won't give exact measurments because we never use them.)
Add cut up apples to crockpot. Even sized peices makes smooth applesauce. If they're different then it will be chunky. Add lemon peel, sugar (you can always add more at the end) and a little bit of water. Cook on high. Stir occasionally. Ours turned out pretty good!
Okay. You have not lived g until you have visited Colorado and eaten a Palisade Peach. Okay, well maybe you've lived a little bit, but not really. I mean really, they even have their own festival. Palisade Peach Fest anyone? Its something I've never been to but think about when I buy one of these at the farmers market or get a bag full in our farm share. Along with all of that other goodness. Next post? Refigerator Peach jam.
"Originally developed in the latej 1800's by a Swiss nutritionist." - the bag.
Whole grains, dried fruits, and nuts? It sounded pretty good to me. Turns out, it is pretty good! I tried it cooked with water, cooked with almond milk, cooked with water served with almond milk, with bananas and cinnamon. All pretty good. Definately bringing a bag of this to school with me. I heard about a overnight museli recipe that I'm trying next. It's wholesome, got some crunch and some chewey, and I thnk I actually won't be hungry for a while, unlike when I eat those processed cereals or just fruit or something for breakfast. Emma approved.

As a new beliver in 6 am yoga and healthy habits, and as an old believer in really intense workouts and pushing my body to the limit, I've turned over a new leaf and am finding foods to fuel my body better as I go to college in 2 weeks. Today, Quinoa. Here's what I did.
1 cup water
1/2 cup quinoa
Boil water. Cook quinoa 10 to 15 minutes until tender and outer ring is visible.
1-2 cups frozen or fresh peaches
Appx 1/2 cup almond milk to taste
1/4 cup crushed pinapple
Handfull blueberries/nuts/something crunchy
Add to cooked quinoa and stir. Heat if desired.
I'll be trying my hand at feel good breakfast cereals over the next couple of weeks so stay tuned for that. Peace, love, 6 am yoga. I'm out.
