Good Morning! I hope everyone has some great Friday plans.
Lately, I have been dreaming about broccoli slaw. Well, that’s at least the only dream I’ve had lately that hasn’t been completely weird. (Does anyone else dream about COMPLETELY random things??)
I keep buying broccoli slaw to add it to an omelet, because I used to do that all the time. However, every single time I have thought about eating one, it sounds like the worst idea ever. So instead, I decided I must create a new recipe involving it. Because I’m tired of throwing it away when it goes bad!
I decided a “taco salad” would be nice. I don’t know if it can be considered a taco salad when broccoli slaw is the base, but it was really tasty.
I started with seven ounces of broccoli slaw.
I added some green onions,1/4 cup red bell pepper and an ounce of avocado on top.
Then I mixed together black beans, Chobani, lemon juice and some cumin. I think the measurements were 1/2 cup, three ounces, 1/8 teaspoon and 1/8 teaspoon, respectively.
On the side I had an ounce of FSTG chips, multigrain flavor and cucumber. I also started out with a tablespoon of salsa for dipping, but I was loving it so much I had another tablespoon.
It wasn’t as filling as I thought it might be, so I think next time I’ll add more beans, more avocado and more bell pepper. Maybe have half as many chips to make up the difference. It tasted really great though!
On a less fun note, it has definitely been proved to me that not only does my body dislike flaxseed, but also chia seeds. Which really makes me sad because there are so many health benefits to both! And the chia seeds are so pretty in Angela’s vegan overnight oats.
I added some chia seeds to my green monster a couple of days ago, and my bowels are STILL unamused with me.
Strawberries, spinach, banana, chia seeds.
Cocoa powder, protein powder, peanut butter.
It was really tasty all blended together, but I don’t think I’ll be trying to eat any flaxseed or chia seeds anytime soon!
Have you ever tried broccoli slaw? If so, what do you add it to?
