Aloha! Nothing like starting the morning with an annual OBGYN appointment. Fun times! I know they say it's only necessary once every 3 years but I like to keep on it......( unlike the dentist ). I'm so inspired by checking off my own list of medical appointments in 2010 that I let Carlos know that I will be making him dental and medical check up appointments when I get to work tomorrow morning.......
Me: "You are going to the doctors and the dentist because you are almost 40 and I'm worried about you...."
Carlos: "Ummm okayyyyy"
Me: "So next Tuesday should be good for you right??
Carlos: "Ummm sure...."
Me: "Awesome, I'll let you know what time. Don't worry, I'll go with you........"
Carlos: "That's great Amanda"
He loves me I swear.....
After "Maui Medical" I made myself a HUGE Green Juice!!
1 bunch organic Kale
2 organic Granny Smith Apples
1 whole local cucumber
1/2 local lemon
Place all in Juicer.....makes about 18 oz!
mmmmm Vegetarian Organic Dolmas and local lemon.
Banana Soft Serve Sunday.... - raw vegan
2 frozen bananas in Vita-Mixer, agave, and vanilla extract until wipped.
Chocolate Sauce: mix of agave, vanilla, sea salt, and raw cocao
Strawberry Sauce: strawberries blended with 1 packet of Stevia
This didn't suck......
Then a short shopping trip to the Honokowai Farmer's Market
( Almost bought those Cremini Mushrooms.....maybe tomorrow. Yum! )
Look at those beautiful local Olowalu Tomatoes :-)
I bought some sweet white Kula Maui corn
and some Maui green onions.
to use with these....
I decided to make a Asian inspired cold Green Bean Salad with a mixture of these ingredients...
rice wine vinegar
Thai Dragon chilies from my garden
Toss dressing with blanched green beans and marinate in the fridge for several hours..
I served my Green Bean Salad with Basmati rice, black sesame seeds and Bill Granger's inspired Corn and Ginger Soup ( 11/4/10 post )
"So good, it's good for you......"
Back to work in the a.m. Ciao!
