Let's talk about food obsessions... you know what I mean. The foods that for some reason you're suddenly hooked on. The ones that seem to find their way into your grocery basket on every shopping trip without you even realizing you put them there. The foods that make you antsy when you run out of them at home. You're obsessed, and then suddenly, one day, something else comes along and you move on to your next obsession.

For a while I was obsessed with tamari almonds. Some days I snacked on them, some days I chopped them and sprinkled them over my stir fry, other days they made it into my salad. I still eat them, but they no longer hold the same power over me. Now I seem to have moved onto swiss chard which I seem to eat pretty much every day in one form or another. Oh, and Amy's vegan pizza. Which I don't eat every day but I do like to make sure I have in my freezer.

Oooh-I love tamari almonds! I haven't had any for awhile, I'll definitely have to pick some up next time I'm at the store.

I'm super into kale lately--I've been trying to sneak it into just about every meal. And in the not-so-healthy arena, I'm totally addicted to the garlic/honey-mustard pretzels. I buy them in the bulk section of our health food store and could literally eat them every day! But I should probably stick to the kate....

My guilty obsession right now is chocolate peanut butter. I've run the numbers - it's a little better in the sugar department than adding jelly to plain peanut butter, and my little one loves it on toast. I like it spread on a banana.

Homemade hummus! I love this stuff, and I've found how to make it into so many things! Wraps, burger-like things, dips, sauce for pizza. I make a base version and then add things to each separate batch, like grilled veggies of different kinds or nuts or breadcrumbs, etc.

Cauliflower! Polenta! My homemade "meat"balls made from nuts and veggies are also a big favorite all around and perfect for a busy work night--I make a batch ahead of time and then I can feel good about just serving pasta.

I am totally hooked on green smoothies and I hope it never stops!  I read about the benefits of blending greens for easy digestion and I've been drinking about a quart most days.  My junk food cravings have disappeared and I feel more alive and have the undescribable boost in mental clarity.  

 

I use about 2 cups of raw chopped greens, alternating as many types as possible different days/weeks plus some fresh or frozen fruit (pineapple is my favorite) plus water or orange pineapple juice for extra sweetness.  I highly recommend!

Kale Chips!  I've been making a batch a week, maybe 2, for our family of 5.  I use an awesome "nacho cheez" flavour found on

alittleinsanity.com

 

These absolutely rock and I can't keep my partner away from them!!!

 

Also, kelp noodles.  For a primarily raw diet, these come in VERY handy for quick, weeknight meals.

Trader Joes black olives (tese are so great because the olives are naturally ripened and the crime is light and the olives actually taste like olives)
Mangoes that are in season these days

I eat my share of less-healthy stuff, but something I've had to have nearly every day the past few weeks is:  Sliced apples sprinkled with cinnamon.  I don't add sugar but somehow it tastes like sugar's on them.  Yum!

We've been gathering apples from these ancient abandoned trees and I've been drying lots of them in the oven super-low...I'm obsessed with how perfect this FREE food is, and how fun to gather all together, too, shaking those trees! It's amazing, even the sourest apples taste like candy after they are dried (and the kids eat them like candy, too, hurray!)...
