Even though we happen to be temporarily living in our car, we don’t necessarily always want to eat Ramen noodles or Ma & Cheese (especially because we’ve been listening to the audiobook Omnivore’s Dilemma during our drives). We also don’t want to spend a lot of money eating out all the time. Instead, we try to buy local, especially when it comes to produce and cook a healthy meal at “home” whenever we can. Since we both love the surf & sun, lately we’ve been inspired to add a tropical flare to our meals. Here are a few of our easy recipes.
1 spring onion
a few springs of cilantro
a bit lime juice
salt to taste
Dice it all up, squeeze on the lime juice, stir in the salt and serve over fresh seafood or brown rice.
Camarones (shrimp) a la Benjamin
½ kilo fresh shrimp
2 cloves garlic
1 spring onion
a dash of soul food seasoning
a splash of Pacifico beer
Peel & wash shrimp, sautee with garlic & onion in oll, uncovered for 5 minutes. Add beer and cover until cooked completely.
5-6 chunks of mango
1 banana sliced
a splash of milk
a handful of ice
a packet of Emergen-C (1000% vitamin C)
In a glass, add in the following order: ice, mango, banana, milk, Emergen-C. Blend with stick blender. Yum! Breakfast in a cup with easy cleanup!
Smoothies Todos Santos
Basically the same as Smoothies Mazatlán, but since we didn’t have milk at the time we used more ice and a bit of yogurt.
1 kiwi sliced
a splash of water or juice yogurt (if you like it a bit thicker)
Blend together in a glass and sip in the sun somewhere inspiring.
