Slow Food vs. Fast Food

Yesterday was one of those days where I alternated between being rushed and taking my time. For instance, I took some time in the morning to chop a million apples I got at the farmers’ market for my Easiest Slow-Cooker Applesauce:

I also took time to prepare a lovely salad for lunch. I had missed my Hugh Jass salad from the day before! This one had romaine, my creamy avocado dressing, dried cranberries, chopped bell pepper, chopped onion, avocado and edamame. I had an apple with some peanut butter for dessert.

By the time evening rolled around, I still had a lot to do including a conference call for a group project for one of my classes. Dinner then became rushed. I ended up heating up one of these brown rice tortillas:

I hardly ever buy flour products like tortillas anymore, but I picked these up at the health food store last week on a whim. The ingredient list isn’t too bad and they are gluten-free:

I then filled the tortilla with leftover water-sauteed collard greens, mushrooms, onion and bell pepper:

I added some Veganaise and leftover Tangy Cashew Sauce for more flavor. Not bad for a dinner made in a rush. Before racing to my conference call, I took some time to savor a bowl of my applesauce that had been simmering all day!

In the battle of slow food vs. fast food in my house yesterday, I’m not sure who won. 🙂 Have a great Thursday!

      Hi Christy, I cannot take credit for this, I read it on another blog. Glad you got the joke (my husband didn’t know what the heck I was talking about). 🙂

      Hi Kaitlyn! I still buy applesauce for baking, but you should def try the slow cooker for homemade applesauce. The sweetness really depends on the quality of the apples, but my local farmers are still selling last year’s crop and they are still really nice apples.

    I always want to like those brown rice tortillas — rice, yay! — but they are too tasteless and crumbly for me. Bummerz. I do love the regular ‘zeke tortillas, though, and the corn ones.
