Spent the morning hanging out with Sergio “Ms. Okra” Robinson today. Visited the new painting of her father, “Mr. Okra” under the Claiborne overpass at Lafitte Street & met some of her lovely regular customers. It’s wonderful to see the tradition continuing in #neworleans#freshfruit ##freshveggies#mrokra#food#nola
One of the best papayas I've had in a long time so sweet but not too much. I couldn't take a pic of the first half, it got eaten. So after I satisfied my appetite I decided to take a picture of the second half.
There's nothing better than an ice cold agua fresca! Agua frescas are Mexican fresh fruit juices and they're perfect to cool down with this heat! I bought this juice at the Mexican market today, but it is simple to make and I'll include a recipe below.
Agua de Sandia/Watermelon fresh juice
Serves: about 6 ( or not if you dont want to share ) 5-6 cups of watermelon chunks
3 cups of water
Optional: 1-2 tsps agave nectar or sugar if fruit is not sweet enough
Blend watermelon on high with water and sweetener ( if you're adding any ). To make the juice extra smooth, you can strain it through a colander. Add ice to your cups, pour your juice and enjoy! Stay cool
Snack: I had some calories still to spare this evening and fancied something snacky, so I had a few strawberries and some pineapple. So tasty
Finished my day on 1180kcal
Still struggling with the feet but managed 7320 steps so at least I've still been somewhat active
And had my 2 litres of water, as always
How many times does your omelette turn into scrambled eggs? tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, chilly, spring onions
Are you all as excited for the warm weather as we are? To celebrate, Basil’s sangria is back!! Come enjoy a glass, or invite some friends with you for a pitcher! Served daily with fresh fruit. #springinwisconsin#sangria#basil#freshfruit
I’ve been on such a big salad kick lately! They’re just so easy and nutritious and you can dress a salad up in so many different ways it never really gets boring! Today I have spring mix, baked chicken, sliced strawberries and grapes with some roasted walnuts and craisins with a drizzle of raspberry vinaigrette dressing (my fav)
