I tried. I really did. But the overwhelming amount of pumpkin in my face everywhere I went today sucked me in. Call me basic. It's okay. I can't help it. Pumpkin is just so good. I'll admit I'm not much of an Autumn/Winter girl. I love summer! So it's odd that I would be celebrating the change in seasons. But I'm not too upset about it just yet because it's still in the 90s here. And I'm still soaking up every last drop of sunshine. Ice cream felt a bit rebellious too. At least I'm not making pumpkin soup and pumpkin lattes yet. Plus any excuse to try a new flavor of ice cream is always welcome. Enjoy!
I love tostones. They're delicious. They're crunchy and they remind me of a better version of chips. But I don't eat out that much so I rarely have them. I was looking at some green plantains at the grocery store the other day and suddenly I found myself buying them and dreaming about making tostones when I got home. I wanted to make some sauces to go with them and then I decided I'd add a little protein via shrimp and the next thing I knew I had this beautiful appetizer. I will be making these for any and every party I'm invited to because they turned out better than I even imagined. And don't be intimidated, they're actually super easy to make.
PurePharma just released a free ebook on Recovery Fundamentals and how to optimize your recovery to enhance your performance. I've talked briefly about recovery in different posts, but I've never dedicated an entire post to it. Which is crazy because it's one of the things I think about the most! If you come to my website it's likely to find healthy recipes which means you're concerned about what you put in your body. And that's awesome! You care about your health and how the food you eat nourishes your body and helps it recover.
