My dog is great about making me feel guilty when I get busy around the house and ignore her for too long. She pouts on her bed pretending to ignore me or anxiously looks at me every time I walk through the room in case I might mention the “W” word.
But Shadow is still sulking around me waiting for daddy to come home.
I swear on the weeks hubby is away, he thinks it’s my fault like the empty food bowl I heard all about before my alarm this morning. Oh, that was my fault.
Lunch was nothing to feel guilty about and I may have even improved my nori wrapping skills … kind of. I smeared Hemp Butter Pate on a nori sheet with sliced carrots and cucumber for a fun and simple lunch.
And the rolls almost look neat. More importantly they were very tasty with a rich and savory flavor and cool crunch. The pate added a satisfying heartiness to the veggies.
Since we’re heading into a nice, long weekend, I’ll probably be snacking on a lot of popcorn. I gave it up for 6 months when I first went raw striving for a high-raw diet, but I missed it too much and brought it back into my life. And I love that I can buy dried popcorn in minimal packaging bulk from Whole Foods for pennies compared to cheap, microwave popcorn. And that it takes about as much time to pop a batch in my trusty Presto Hot Air Corn Popper as it does to nuke a bag of microwave popcorn. Even better are the flavor possibilities! Recently I’ve discovered two more flavor combos I adore, one drizzling with Bragg Liquid Aminos and nutritional yeast.
They add a low-calorie savory and cheesy flavor perfect for a salty snack craving.
For the occasional sweet craving, I toss in a little coconut oil, liquid stevia, and sprinkle with raw cacao powder.
The stevia counters the slight bitterness of the cacao nicely and the coconut oil adds a rich, smoothness to the flavors.
Are you a popcorn fan? What’s your favorite seasonings to add?
