This chili has been a lifesaver this week. Seriously.
It is 75 degrees in my apartment, but all I can think about is how good this chili is. Yeah, that is the craziest thing I have said all day. It is 75 degrees in February and, guys, it is DANG HOT. This time of year, I am usually all about blankets and sweaters and bowls of hot steamy goodness, but here I am, in shorts.
And yet, I am still craving this chili. This whole situation makes no sense.

Pump up your Monday and squash the competition. These colorful bowls are just perfect meal prep for the week!
Here’s the thing. This bowl is bordering between grain bowl and salad. And, right now, because I am feeling virtuous, I am going to call it a salad. Here’s the thing, I love salad, but salad with iceberg lettuce and weird dressing? No, I do not love that kind of salad. What’s worse is a salad that is wilted before I even put the dressing on! No thank you! Whenever I make salads, I make them big, colorful, full of different veggies, and I always finish them off with cheese. Always.

Resolution of the week: eat more color.
And it starts with these beautiful purple eggplants.
I know eggplant is not the most colorful veggie, but, after a couple of weeks of beige foods, brown foods, and… COOKIES, my body is so ready for a change. While I miss the little baked goods (it was as gluttonous as it was glorious) I can just feel my body cry out for all things veg.
But, then again, my name is the Cutting Veg

I am eating this noodle bowl for L & D every day right now and I guess you could say it’s going alright. I just freaking love noods, so the idea of having coconutty goodness mixed with squashy goodness mixed with noods.
Oh yeah, get this straight up in my face.

We are learning how we can get lazy this week. And hey, that is a OK!
Because, serious question, my fellow lads and lassies. Have any of you made tamales before? I have. And they are delicious, but damn they are SO hard to make. The day that I made them, I remember spending hours wrapping the cornmeal with the corn husks and tying them together and steaming them. Yeah, that is a lot more work than I normally want to do in these cases. And honestly, the guacamole and the pico I made were winners compared to the corn tamales that took me hours to make.
So here we are, on a mission to be more lazy.

Aka how we can bottle up summer. I’m down!
The first time I had tomato jam was at Cafe Gratitude in LA. Now, I am always looking for new and interesting ways to eat my favorite foods. And a lot of times, restaurants provide a great source of inspiration. But this bowl, especially the tomato jam, absolutely blew me away.
Down the street, we’re talking. Man, is that inspiration wind strong!

Can ice cream count as breakfast? Why yes. Yes it can!
There is a certain sense of accomplishment when you get a day’s worth of fruits and veggies and a workout before 10 AM. And smoothies, rich and THICK smoothies, do just that. Now, if you have spent a second on Instagram, you know that the latest and greatest smoothie innovation is putting smoothies in BOWLS. And guys, I’v been doing this for years with no plans of stopping. A bowl of smoothie just makes them more meal-like, you know? Because you can just a ton of toppings on em and BAM, instead filler upper.
You might as well dump your whole pantry on here… cause I do.

Had a rough day? Eat a tostada!
That sounds like the type of logic game I would be good at. I think everyone at some point wants to go to law school. I know I did, but I failed miserably at the logic games. I think this would be the time to create some sort of food attorney position.
Because that would and could be my hopes and dreams.
