How did you sleep? You mentioned last night that life has been feeling a little busy lately, a little rushed. That is certainly a notion I can relate to. I’d like to find a way today, to help you slow down just a little.
I have packed up a substantial salad that you could enjoy while reading on a big Muskoka chair, taking in the crisp fall air and the stunning colours of the changing leaves.
But if you’d prefer to stay inside, tucked up under a cozy blanket, I’d be happy to toss everything together in a big beautiful bowl and serve it up to you.
At least the chewing required by a bountiful bowl of kale requires us all to slow down a little.
I filled the bowl with baby kale today. It is full of goodness and less bitter than its more mature siblings. I had the idea for the roasted maple almonds last night, just as you were turning in. I hope the enticing aroma didn’t keep you up. Since they came out of the oven, all smoky and sweet, I’ve been enjoying a taste every couple of hours.
p.s. Believe it or not, I got food poisoning during my birthday lunch so I spent yesterday recovering in bed. Thank goodness Hannah is here to bring me coconut water and grapes! I’m hoping tomorrow I’ll be up for a big beautiful bowl kale and a smoky maple dressing.
With only 10 more Vegan MoFo posts to go I hope you’re still enjoying all the fun. xo
