I am not a turnip fan, but I am going to revisit them because your suggestions sound wonderful!

I also found a pancake recipe that uses up some of my homemade yogurt...and is low in carbs!

Love turnips. Rutabaga, squashes, sweet potatoes, beets, taro... I like root veggies.

Though I miss it I haven't had a rice cooker in years, not since I banned all that cancer causing teflon from our kitchen Tongue. I was thinking it would be great to use a crock pot to cook grains so looked it up and voila! That tiny yogurt making crock I bought will be prefect for steaming rice, yay!

I don't think I've ever eaten a turnip! I added a couple to our next grocery delivery. I'm excited to try them.

So I know I'm a little late, but last week's prompt was to try a new food. And while I didn't actually DO anything to it (cook it or anything), I tried rose hips. Straight off the bush in the front yard. Very interesting flavor and texture. I think I will try to make some tea out of them (I guess that's the popular thing to do?). I dunno if different types of roses mean different flavors of rose hips, but the ones I had tasted sort of like a mix between a pink lady apple and a strawberry... and the texture was sort of like tomato paste, with these stingy bits in it. Bizarre, but yea.

Ooh, that looks tasty!  Speaking of Kale, I was just contemplating this recipe: http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2009/03/colcannon-puffs.html since I've still got half a bag of potatoes at home...

I'm going to be trying out a high-protein, no-oil "pesto" tomorrow. Got the stuff today, and I'm excited. Also, tonight we're making more quinoa patties (I think we're gunna try baking them this time).

Ooh the Colcannon Puffs sound good! We make potato patties out of day old mashed potatoes.  Just patty up, add seasoned salt and garlic powder, and "fry" in non-stick pan until crisp on both sides. Great for breakfast or brinner with an over easy egg on top!

Let us know how the pesto turns out elliot_anne! I think I've replaced the oil with chicken stock before.

Those puffs sound fun!

I made the BEST soup tonight, oooh! My mom left some frozen veggie ground fake meat stuff in the freezer a while ago and today I finally got to a big grocery store to buy weird veg, lol, so made a big pot of simmer. It's got:
Onion, celery, carrot, rutagaba, potato, garlic, barley, veggie ground stuff, tomato paste, bay leaf, garlic and onion powder, cumin, parsley, thyme, oregano, sage, basil, paprika, sea salt, and because I have it in the fridge some coconut aminos which is sort of like soy sauce.
I can't stop eating it! And even the kids think it's good. Score!

Eep! So far behind....

Health Prompt for Week of Feb 19-25:
Track what you eat for at least one day and evaluate if you want/need to change anything to meet your healthy eating goals. Not enough fruits and veggies? More fat than you want? Not enough protein? We all have different goals to make ourselves healthier, so please share your findings if you like!  (Whether that's sharing your food journal for the day + your evaluations or just your evaluations)

I do track (now!  Roll Eyes) with fitday.com....I am eating too much processed carbs.

I am proud of myself=In the last 2 days I have cut my processed carbs down to only 1 meal a day (rice today) and some snacks and I am actually eating well under my calorie "budget". My last goal is still my current goal: eat more carbs from trees and plants instead of the oven or boxes (aka roughage and fruits)

I am really struggling to contain my "anxiety snacking" at work, but what has helped is keeping 100 cal packs of almonds, fiber bars and jello/sugar free pudding in my desk drawer as well as flavored water. When I stress I want the chips right off so this has been a good change.
