Along with all of the information, there are lots of helpful people.
So helpful in fact, that I am going to let them help me write this post! These are recipes that have been provided by or inspired by people I am following on Twitter.
Chris B / Zen to Fitness inspired me to find an easy way to cook beets: wrap them in foil and bake at 400 for 45 minutes. Set them aside. Whenever you are ready to eat them, just slice them up and heat them in a skillet. I also chopped, then pan fried the greens with butter and garlic.
Matt Stone / 180 Degree Health provided a knife skills video that changed the way I hold a knife, while slicing and dicing. He also went on about macadamia nuts. Meanwhile, Zen to Fitness and CastleGrok were putting up very positive posts about coconut and coconut flakes. In the end, they all helped inspire this recipe for Tropical Snowboard Mix: banana chips, coconut flakes, cashews, macadamias, and dark chocolate chips.
Speaking of Castle Grok his frequent posts about coconut milk led to two great experiments. One, I modified my green smoothie recipe. I added half a can of coconut milk and subtracted an equal amount of orange juice. So now, the recipe is: frozen spinach, frozen mango chunks, half a can of coconut milk and just enough orange juice to blend it all smooth. Two, he linked to this awesome recipe for scrambled eggs/dessert using coconut milk. I made it using my rice cooker to steam the eggs, which made them nice and fluffy. I sprinkled them with cinnamon and topped it all off with strawberries.
Twitter is swarming with talented creative people sharing tons of information, hints, and tips. I have been exposed to great ideas relating to work, exercise, and food. Experiments have followed and as you can see the results have been positive. Many thanks to NU_FiT, Zen To Fitness, 180 Degree Health, and Castle Grok!
