Daniel’s Fast Day 2 2018

Day 2 and I went to CostCo and went crazy!!

I was surprised that I could purchase a lot of things that I could eat straight away. I bought some Annie’s soups, lots of nuts, dates, celery, carrots, colorful peppers and toothbrush heads.  WHY ARE THEY SO EXPENSIVE!

Oh – you want to know what tasty meal I’m having today?!? well ladies and gents it’s leftovers.  I ate a bunch of KBBQ with friends this past weekend and I am having the remaining scallion salad and what I would like to call “rice”.

Why do I feel like every night will be lazy? Tomorrow I’m going out.  Eating at a vegan restaurant.  Oh yea buddy~

Today I leave you with the recipe for “rice”.  I will provide the recipe in parts so you can decrease or increase the volume as you choose.

“Rice”
1 part yellow millet
1 part pearl barley
1 part steal cut Irish style oats
1 part quinoa
2 part beans

Soak overnight in cold water
Then place in fancy rice cooker on mixed rice function.
TADA I’m sorry for those who don’t have a rice cooker. Alternatively you can put it in a pressure cooker like a fancy Instapot. Honestly I don’t know how to function in my kitchen without my rice cooker, vitamix and coffee maker.  Main reason being my favorite way to prepare my sweet potatoes is in the rice cooker and I love green smoothies and then there is coffee…

What I like about this rice is that it’s a little sticky like rice, has protein to keep me full and it’s pretty.  I like pretty food. I bought the rainbow carrots instead of the baby ones because they were marginally cheaper but really it’s because I’ll get to eat pretty things.  Now I’ll have to wash, peel, and cut them.  Oh vanity, why do you haunt me!

What did you eat today?
3 persimmons
3 clementines
mixed greens with dressing + hummus
this mixed rice thing with scallions

I have so many ideas for things to make and things I want to try… but this slight over achiever is a firm believer in preparation.  Preparation is KEY.  So 2 weeks ago I made some vegan kimchi and that junk has been fermenting and is all nice and flavorful.. ohhh yea… buddy the recipe is coming.  I had to add a lot of fruit so it would ferment.  Thank you Jesus for sweet fruits like pears and red bell peppers.. thats right that nightshade is a fruit (I think all night shades would be fruits….)
