I'm off to Las Vegas.  I made some Vegas bentos for the flight!

carrots, mixed olives, babybels shaped like dice (they are a bit squared off, but that's hard to see in the pic), cheddar cube and mini cheese sandwich.

Off I go!

I have a ton of pics and other fun things to post here...and I've been very lazy and a bad community owner. I promise to rectify that.

Anyway, this isn't exactly a food post, but a drink post.

Zico chocolate coconut water! I drink coconut water and I prefer Zico. On a recent trip to Whole Foods, I noticed the new flavor of chocolate! So, of course I purchased some. I finally tried it the other day:

1. It is NOT just coconut water, there is also cocnut cream in it. So it is not fat-free like other flavors.

2. However, the coconut cream almost makes it like chocolate milk. It's a darkish chocolate flavor (I don't eat a lot of chocolate, so maybe it seems bolder to me because of that) and delicious!

3. I do not see drinking this flavor as I do the others (after a night of too much wine; after/during a workout).

4. I cannot see drinking a whole bottle of this as I do the others because it's pretty rich.

5. I can see it being a treat that is better for you than a chocolate bar (or 6) and I plan on purchasing this flavor again (although, not by the case as I do the other flavors).

Conclusion: if you like chocolate and want a good source of electrolytes, I recommend Zico chocolate coconut water!

Taco seasoning is a great spice mix and I use it often. However, I often find it too salty (it is 50% salt) and decided to try to make my own.

swedish chef
I was really lazy in 2010. I didn't cook often enough; ate out too much (gained a bunch of weight).
I took today as an extra vacation day and I've started cooking some stuff to get me through...well, however long it gets me through.
Nothing picture worthy yet, just a pot of couscous and a pot of oatmeal.
My breakfast for my first day back at work is going to be my "pina colada oatmeal." (Also known as pina colada couscous, brown rice, quinoa, millet...)
Super easy recipeCollapse )

I'm also makingBaked Oatmeal Bars They are in the oven now, so I'll post more once they are done. I plan on wrapping them individially and putting them in the freezer for a grab and go.
I used almond milk, raisins and leftover a Trader Joe's trail mix (I forgot the name, but it's cranberries, pineapple, cashews, almonds (more!) and macademias). I picked out the dried fruit, cut up the pineapple pieces and chopped the nuts. I also added coconut. More to follow...
