It's smooth...

1 block soft organic tofu (from Dad's) +
2 frozen mango halves +
5-6 frozen strawberries +
1/2 frozen banana +
1/2 cup your favourite yogurt (if you're not vegan) +
1 cup or more fancy juice, like pomegranate or açaí =

a rich, creamy and (surprisingly) filling breakfast.* Yum!

* You have to blend everything first, then you get the smooth goodness :)

A-roasting we will go

Obtain an acorn squash or two from your local farmer's market or organic produce store and cut it in half. Take a moment to be amazed by the squash.

Scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Sprinkle with red onion, chopped garlic, fresh thyme leaves, salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil.

Place in a roasting pan and roast at 400F about 1 hour until almost cooked through.

In the meantime, scour your fridge for any left-over vegetables, nuts, dried fruit, grains and herbs. Chop everything into fairly small pieces.

Next, brown some ground pork, ground beef, spicy sausage, or even rehydrated textured vegetable protein in a fry-pan.

Remove meat once cooked through and sauté vegetables in the same pan until tender.

Add in browned meat, grains, dried fruit, nuts and herbs. Mix thoroughly.

Stuff into roasted squash and bake until squash is very tender, another 20-30 minutes.

Enjoy with a nice glass of white wine.
