Chocolate-Chili-Avocado Mousse

Here is a dessert worthy of the Aztecs, thanks to the very subtle chili taste. This recipe is easy as making¬†toast, literally ūüôā . Take the following ingredients:

2 ripe avocadoes

4.5 tbsp. cocoa powder

4 tbsp. honey

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

3 tbsp. chocolate almond milk

2 pinches of salt

(Berries, for garnish)

and (gently) throw into a food processor. Blend until well-mixed (which should take 1-2 minutes). At this point in time, you can taste the avocadoes. Rest assured that once the dessert is cooled in the fridge, the avocado taste will magically disappear. Refrigerate for 15 minutes, garnish with berries and serve! If you wish, this recipe can also be placed in the freezer which will cause the mousse to crystallize and become more of an ice cream, which is equally fun.

This blogpost is the perfect opportunity to talk about some of chocolate`s strengths (such an opportunist I am…

keepn’ on…

on any given day, there are at least ten things i can think of wanting to do but do not do them. instead i’ll smoke weed. which is why i have addressed the issue as much as i can. i want to paint my room, set up the standing garden on the back patio to plant greens for salads, (harder than it sounds since we are on the third floor and share the space with a couple hippies from the 70’s that refuse to throw anything away.) fix my dresser, (i’ve had it for over 10 years and the finish is destroyed) batch some fruity kombucha, make hummus and vegan tatziki. (sp?) i also have two library books that are about two months past due. must… return those… i am embarrassed to admit one is the new bridget jones. those books are so easy to read… plus the idiotic romance is a fav of mine in the state that i am in…¬†

i also need to: clean my room, do laundry, clean out pantry, bring down all the junk from the porch that is ours downstairs… GYM! lol…

i guess i better get to work. if i could get rid of cable i would. it keeps me in a lot more than i would like to admit. san francisco is full of awesome shit. i could even just go for long walks to feel better really… internet costs just about as much as it does with cable included so we decided to keep the “deal” we have. :/

 

 

anxiety first thing when i wake up…

today i took the whole day for just me. i am still in my “physical recovery” phase. body is tired. mind is foggy. i did have a goal of at least working out. oh well. i can take this whole week since it is spring break. i actually don’t have anything planned for tomorrow either.¬†

looking into what i need to do in order to become a certified trainer. this is a realistic goal for the end of the year.

beans beans.

today was a good day really. actually woke up feeling pretty good. walked all over the city for my errands and was done before one. still not better enough to complete things that i have been meaning to for months. i know it would make me better but i still don’t do it. i will grow out of this stage. it just takes a while sometimes. i just breathe and tell myself i am in recovery and these mood swing are normal. and they are swings all right.

found some cranberry beans in my pantry so i soaked them last night and am cooking them now. i don’t remember what they taste like. i have a ton of good food still. i can’t help but put garlic sprouts on errrrythanggg.¬†

gonna have to pay rent late. i’m shelling out a ton up front for my FSA. i only have until april 6th to submit my claims. so of course i’m scheduling as many appointments as possible. one of the specific lotions for my face is 399! that shit cray. i need to get obama care soon.¬†

w e e d.

interview went great! but of course i won’t know until next week. there are like fifty people going for two positions so i’m not really getting my hopes up. really want to smoke. grrr. won’t do it. just so much time, and the club is so close… waaahhhh. u’ll go clean out the fridge instead.¬†

no roach.

today i will not smoke weed. it is sabotaging my weight loss efforts. and i know that. but the addict in me loves numbing all the pain. i love smoking. everything about it but the munchies. after this interview i have to decide if i want to head out to the penninsula or stay here. my sister left for tokyo and i’m all alone. except for the people that we are air BnBing too. Normally I wouldn’t be too fond of the situation (having so many people renting out the room) but due to my financial situation i can use the money. wish me luck on my interview.

after i get back i will clean out EVERYTHING in the fridge. since she will be gone for more than two weeks, it’s fair game. i think there is quinoa in there from three weeks ago. ewww!

if i don’t get this job i am taking some time off from job hunting in order to feel better about my current looks. usually it only takes about a week of good workouts. a shit ton of water and weight lifting.¬†
