Ohhh myyyy.. I’m so happy is almost friday! Seriously this week has been so intense! No words.
School is driving me bananas! Well, to be specific microeconomics is.. I love going to college but man it gets tough sometimes! I mean, week 3 and I’m already freaked out? Not good!
Anyways, life is good and I’m doing my best to enjoy it, whether is good or bad I’m just looking forward and keeping my eyes on the goal. We all are living different situations on a daily basis, and we deal with so many different things, whether you go to school, you’re a stay at home mommy or you’re a busy worker we all experience tough moments in life and I guess that is what makes our path in life so unique and what help us become stronger persons. Quick and short: bad moments are not forever, LIFE GOES ON.
Into another topic, I want to remind you tomorrow is the beginning of Hot Raw Chef 2012 Voting!! I’m super excited!! Don’t forget to vote here, you just have to register at the bottom. My video is number 14!
If you haven’t watched the video yet, you can watch it there or in my youtube channel: gastrawnomica or in my last post here.
I already received some great comments so that makes super happy, of course! If you haven’t tried it yet you’re missing a super simple and deli salad.
Anyways, I have great news, I’m officially on twitter! Finally! I mean, I’m so behind with things sometimes! You can follow me now! Look for @gastrawnomica, I’ll be posting there too when there’s a new blog post and of course random news, so keep an eye!
Tonight, last but not least, I want to share one more simple and yummy recipe. I made this a while ago so I’m having trouble reminding exactly what I used. I will try my best but quantity may vary.
This is so good! You can use it as a side dish or filling for raw burritos with romaine lettuce or if you’re using raw wraps just make the jicama cubes smaller or grated. It was so easy to do, so refreshing and full of nutrients. Perfect combo!
Gastrawnomica’s Mandarin Chutney
1 medium jicama, cubed
7-9 medium mandarines
Fresh parsley, finely chopped
1/4-1/2 Jalapeño pepper, seedless and finely chopped
1 teaspoon dried oregano (or any combination of dried herbs)
First, cut your jicama into small chunks. Using your food processor, mix the mandarines by pulsing several times until chunky and juicy. If you’re using seedless mandarines you can pulse longer but if they have seeds pulse carefully. Put jicama, fresh cilantro, jalapeño and mandarines in a big bowl. Mix well, add dried herbs and mix a little bit more.
I hope you try the chutney when you have some mandarines on hand and tell me all about it! Hope it turns out fine!
I wish you all have a great weekend, it goes by so fast that I’m already “scheduling” a relaxing and fun weekend!.
