Banana pudding breakfast

I've been so crazy busy with school, work, and studying that I haven't been eating anything that excites me, mainly because I haven't been cooking. And a few days this week, I'll be having to wake up at 5AM, do pet duties (while I'm taking care of a parrot, cat, and dog), get to work, and after work have classes from 4PM-10PM. And if I don't eat good food in between, I turn into a cranky bitch, who can't focus in class. So the vegan must be fed. 

-2 packages Mori-Nu silken tofu (excess water drained)
-2 large ripe bananas
-2 packs stevia
-2 tablespoons chia seeds
-2 tablespoons coconut flakes
-2 tablespoons raw hemp seeds

1. Combine chia seeds, hemp seeds, and coconut flakes and place in bottom of jar as a "crust" base. 
2. Blend silken tofu, bananas, and stevia together till smooth. 
3. Layer pudding on top of seed mix. Put in fridge till chill or overnight. 

Enjoy it in your mouth!

Oven dried tomatoes

There are a few reasons I get really hungry at night-I either am watching a cooking show or on Pinterest, tonight it was both. It's also 3AM, and my back is killing me more than normal (I under went a failed spinal surgery in November 2011). I also remembered that I have a ridiculous amount of ripe tomatoes that I can't possibly eat before going bad. Hence me making "sun" dried tomatoes. Coldest summer in Southern California ever without sun is annoying me. End ramble.

-Ton of organic ripe tomatoes (for me it was a big potful). 

1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit (93 degrees Celsius). 
2. Wash tomatoes thoroughly and de stem. 

3. Cut in half and squeeze excess liquid/seeds into bowl.

4. Get tomato seem juice everywhere because its 3AM...or not because you may not be a vampire like myself. 
4. Place tomatoes cut side up, sprinkle with salt and pepper.

5. Put in oven and set timer for 6 hours (I ended up baking them for 10). 

Try to control how many you put in your mouth! 
And here is a tomato that looks like boobs.

Stuffed toast

Lately I've been seeing a bunch of pictures on Instagram of French toast, stuffed French toast, banana bread, cinnamon bread...mmmm. Where was I? Toast! I finally caved in and got some bread, and after a failed attempt at French toast this morning I settled on stuffed toast. It's not French but its still delicious, and takes a whole 3 minutes to make. 

-2 slices Ezekiel cinnamon raisin bread 
-1/8 cup frozen blueberries
-1/8 cup frozen strawberries 
-1/8 cup coconut milk
-Maple syrup

1. Put bread in toaster. 
2. Blend berries and coconut milk in vitamix.
3. Top a slice of toast with 3/4 of blended fruit and maple syrup. Top second slice with remaining blended fruit, maple syrup, and frozen berries. 

Get it in your mouth!

Plum ice cream

My stepbrother brought over some deliciously ripe plums last week, and since I wasn't in the mood for them, I chopped them up and threw them in the freezer. This made a great ice cream that took a whole 60 seconds to make. 

-1 cup frozen plums
-2 frozen ripe bananas
-1/4 cup coconut milk

1. Chop frozen bananas and add all ingredients in vitamix or food processor and blend till smooth. 
2. Scoop in bowl and freeze for several hours for a firmer texture. 

Enjoy it in your mouth!

Half raw tacos

So I originally made this salad and for some reason it just wasn't hitting the spot. Throw in some corn tortillas and bam! taco time! Goes really well with some limes tossed in sparkling water. Because I made this as a salad, measurements are approximate.

-1/2 head cauliflower 
-2 cup cooked mushrooms
-1 diced avocado 
-1 cup diced tomatoes
-1 cup chopped celery
-6 corn tortillas
-2 tablespoons lime juice
-salt, pepper, garlic powder, cayenne pepper

1. Pulse in food processor (or blend in vitamix) cauliflower till rice size pieces form. 
2. Pulse in food processor (or blend in vitamix) mushroom till ground. 
3. Mix all ingredients together and season to taste.

4. Heat up tortillas in microwave. 
5. Fill tortillas, plate and serve with limes. 

Remember to chew in your mouth!

Neapolitan ice cream

This is my new favorite addiction that I've just been devouring, covering my face in chocolate. Sorry I'm not sorry. Growing up as a kid this was the ice cream I usually had in my freezer, and now it's just so much better for me.

-1/2 cup frozen strawberries 
-1/4 cup cocoa powder

-1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Bend 1.5 bananas with vanilla till smooth. Pour in bowl.

2. Blend 1 banana and 1/2 cup strawberries. Layer over vanilla. 
3. Blend cocoa, stevia, and 1.5 bananas. Layer over strawberry. 
4. Freeze for at least two hours till firm. 

Nom nom in your mouth!
