almost every time i decide to restrict my diet i pick up a pack of organic brown rice cakes at the market. having these rather cardboard like cakes (?!) in the pantry makes me feel like i’m halfway there (to the diet restriction results, that is). i eat them with sliced tomatoes and sea salt, a thin spread of peanut or almond butter, or with sliced avocados. yesterday for my (rather late) lunch i was feeling like a bowl of something light, filling, and fresh. it had to be fast and easy. bright idea: i broke up a rice cake as the base (good carbohydrate) of my bowl-then came sliced (super nutritious) avocados, a chopped up hard boiled egg (protein), sliced tomatoes (vitamins E, B6, C-besides, i add them to everything), fresh oregano (because it tastes soooo good), and finally a few drops of my lemony shallot vinaigrette. quick taste. yum. crunchy goodness. something was missing, though….looked in the refrigerator for ideas. fresh spicy salsa? scooped over a couple of spoons. another taste. aha! crunchy spicy zesty deliciousness. i will do this again. and again. that good.
