I.C.E., I.C.E. Baby!
Today I have my third class at the Institute for Culinary Education (I.C.E.) and I am crazy excited! These classes were a gift from the fiance and have seriously been the most amazing experience of my life so far. I always knew I wanted to be a chef, but in college the instability of working in a restaurant vs. the security of a corporate position caused me to dash any dreams I had about going to culinary school. Taking this class doesn’t mean I’m going to leave my job, but it did make me realize that just because I don’t get paid to be a chef, doesn’t mean I still can’t get that everyday enjoyment of preparing great tasting food. Plus my current job has pretty great hours, so I’m always out in time to make myself a nice dinner and prepare something for lunch the next day.
Popeye Special (makes about 2.5 cups)
- 1 c. almond milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 large handfuls spinach
- 1/4 c. Strawberries
- 1/4 c. Papaya chunks
- 1/4 c. cantaloupe chunks
- 1 tsp Maca powder
- 10 drops Clear Stevia by NuNaturals
I simply throw everything in the Vita Mix and blend until completely smooth and creamy. If you want it frostier and cooler you could throw in some ice cubes too. Can you think of any better way to start off your day?? 🙂
Well, I’m off to create some kitchen masterpieces! See ya later chickadees.
