not many pictures today… i only have access to a 32mb memory card while my girlfriend is away on tour, and this small storage capacity seems to be affecting my photography in a way that i am NOT into. that and today was mostly leftovers from yesterday, and then a late night dinner (read: no natural light).
breakfast was leftover pancakes and syrup, plus some orange-carrot-ginger juice. the juice was AMAZING! i need to get more carrots tomorrow so i can have it again. also, i saved the carrot pulp to make some kind of dessert in the future, and used it today to color some of the leftover alfredo sauce which, with the addition of some cumin and chili flakes, was transformed into a mexican-style cheese sauce. in the afternoon i snacked on rosemary crisps, and drank the juice out of a coconut… yum!
i do have some of tonight’s dinner saved for tomorrow’s lunch, so hopefully i can snap a better picture than this one of my pre-rolled and cheez-smothered enchilada, lit by my inadequate kitchen at 930pm:
i have to admit that i was pretty tired and lazy as far as food today. i’m not sure what my body is craving entirely, but i feel like i’ve been really focused on italian/french-flavors so far. the enchilada was a nice break, but i’m definitely up for something spicier and “fresher.” i mean by that some thai or indian, something with a different spice profile. i’ve also felt hungry for snacks constantly. i definitely get full with raw food, it’s just a very different kind of full; almost like the intense concentration of pure vegetables and nuts and seeds and spices becomes overwhelming for my mouth and stomach. but an hour or two later, i’m hungry again. it’s a different lifestyle having to think constantly about how much time i need to make a meal, which is very much my own doing for wanting to create more elaborate ones. i think some simpler salads are in my future, and definitely lots of dessert. vanilla cashew cream, i dream of you!
thanks for bearing with me during this, as i feel my posts have become less and less structured and coherent, and more and more personal. hopefully i will strike a good balance soon. until tomorrow…
