Good Things XVII

If there are more things I should look into to jack up my mood on a 40-degree June evening while having a bad cough/cold, please let me know.

Obsessed with a Show While Having—Did I Mention I Have—a Bad Cold

I have watched almost two entire seasons of The Americans this week. A perfect binge watch. Amazon Prime has two seasons!

This bar, from Trader Joe's.

This bar, from Trader Joe’s. Contains 4 x 10g CHO large servings.

Most Times, Chocolate Seems Like a Good Idea

Large.

Large.

Doesn’t the amount of chocolate per scant amount of CHO you might imagine you’re expected (by God, who I think says 10 grams) to consider reasonable seem kind of generous?

While at Trader Joe’s: Riced Cauliflower

When I’ve tried to pre-rice cauliflower at home, my whole fridge/house smells like fart. This is brilliant. It is only $2. And it is organic.

Ultra Micro

Last week I got obsessed with these pens. I ordered. They came. I love them. Do you need one? I can give you one.

A Normal GF Cookie You Do Not Have to Bake Yourself

cookie pack

Features normal ingredients instead of tapioca, potato, and friends.

Ginny Minis: the ingredients in these are not crazy and legume-tasting, yet not so shitty that they wreck a person’s BG for the day. Also yum. 15g CHO/pack.

chobaniTube Yogurt

My people* like these tube yogurts in grape, watermelon, and chocolate. Caveats: I have only ever eaten them frozen. I can not open them without the help of scissors. 7g CHO/tube. (*Including me.).

A New Favorite Car Snack

Maple Glazed Pecan & Sea Salt Kind Bar and a La Croix seltzer. The novel (skinnier) can shape makes it feel more exciting. This = 8g CHO.

A new cauliflower crust pizza. This Detoxinista recipe caught my attention because it uses frozen cauliflower. It caught my heart when my people ate it up and looked at me admiringly. Imagine a world where I’d had that Trader Joe’s frozen pre-riced cauliflower—? I can’t even.

Anyway, a person should use the real recipe (above) but this is my lazy version with notes to myself:

Oven 400F.

Rice one head of cauliflower.

Wring it out in a dishtowel with all your might.

Wring it out.

Mix in a bowl with 1/2 cup of chèvre and 2 eggs. I used two eggs. One didn't seem like enough. I probably had too much cauliflower.

Dump the well-mixed stuff on to parchment.

Spread it and smoosh it and shape it until it is 1/4

Spread it and smoosh it and shape it until it is 1/4″ thick with no thin spots or gaps.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Place another piece of parchment on top and flip it over using a pizza peel or a platter.

Peeeeeeel off the original piece of parchment. Spread a thin layer of Rao's on top and a sprinkle of cheese. Bake for 5 - 10 minutes more, or until cheese melts.

That is pizza. It was gone in five minutes.

      Are we talking about the cooking of cauliflower makes house smell like farts? Not house smells like farts because you eat evil white trees? One is a nose sensitivity, the other a gastro sensitivity which creates nose sensitivity! Hahaha! I love evil white trees. We call them clouds and broccoli trees.

      • I think ricing cauliflower makes my house reek. All of the fart particles come out into the air when so much surface area gets exposed, leaving none to come out of your bum later on.
