speaking of not chewing properly. it sucks. my teeth don't hurt as badly as before but the wires are poking my mouth so i have wax covering them. when i smile, i look like have clearish white boogers chillin in my mouth. it's highly attractive. it also took me about 30 minutes to floss last night. i don't want rotten but straight teeth so i vow to floss at least once a day. this is going to eat into my crafting or sleeping time. i'm super psyched.
anyway, about what i've been eating. i made myself a banana/strawberry yoghurt smoothie yesterday for a snack before my soccer game. it was delish. and would've been healthy had i not added a packet of sugar in it. i liked it so much, i made one for breakfast this morning. for dinner last night, i made Cold Cucumber and Avocado Soup. it was effing awesome, if i do say so myself. i read a few recipes online but when i was at the market, i realized i didn't bring any of them home with me so i winged it. you'll need:
- an english cucumber (less waxy skin and i think tastes better than their american kind)
- lime juice
- cream (i used 2% milk)
- chicken broth
mind you, i did not measure anything, i put in as many cucumber slices as i wanted and two medium sized avocados in. i had maybe a handful of cilantro and a teaspoon of thyme. i put equal parts chicken broth and milk, to make the mashing easy, as well as make the consistency less like guacamole and more like soup. i used a hand blender because i don't have a traditional blender. it came out awesome. the concoction was smooth with just a touch of lime which i added right at the end, and creamy with just a hint of the cilantro and certain bites had the nice mix of lemony thyme.
i'll probably play around with this recipe, add a few touches here and there, maybe other colors. for now the texture is going to have to be smooth but eventually i may add tomatoes or crab meat. thankfully, avocado is good for you!
