Chobani Monster And Socca
Hey guys! So thank you all for entering my very first giveaway! I am beyond excited to announce the winner!
By the Random.org generator, the winner of The Real Food Diet Cookbook is….
Sophia! Congratulations, girl! I will be emailing you!
Well, I am pretty bogged down with school work, but here are some of my recent eats!
And check this out…
It’s a dream come true! Chobani is like the SWEETEST EVER and sent me some delicious flavors that I had never tried!
The Black Cherry and Lemon flavors are phenomenal! Lemon tastes like a cream pie!
Here’s a funny story. My mom is a Chobani MONSTER.
I put all the Chobani samples in the fridge and over the last few days they’ve been disappearing! This morning they were ALL gone and sadly, I still have only tried the Black Cherry and Lemon flavors!
I’m pretty sure my mom LOVED the flavors that I didn’t get to try! Maybe I should have her write a review of all the flavors for you guys! 😉
But still, a big THANK YOU to Chobani for being so generous. I think my mom is convinced enough that she will start buying it more often!
Hey, hey! Guess what? I made chickpea/garbanzo bean flour!! (I’m kind of a DIYer)
I would reccomend doing this when NOBODY else is home….it makes an absolute racket in the food processor and you better have a Vitamix or something equally strong! All you do is process the dried chickpeas until they’re fine like flour! Super easy!
Of course I made some SOCCA!
Socca is a flatbread that is made with chickpea flour and water! It’s so good for you and is absolutely delicious!
I used mine as a pizza “crust”!
– 1 cup chickpea flour
– 1 cup water
– 1 Tbsp. olive or grapeseed oil
– dash of salt
Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine all ingredients and pour into a greased9-inch round pan. Bake for 45 minutes!
I also tried cooking it in a skillet, like a giant pancake-type thing. But baked is soo much better! Trust me.
Instead of cooking with olive oil, I recommend grapeseed oil.
Unlike olive oil, grapeseeed oil has a high smoke point which means it is healthier and cleaner for cooking and baking. When olive oil reaches 200°F (which isn’t very high for cooking), it starts to burn and lose all of it’s nutritional properties. I’ve been sauteeing my veggies in grapeseed oil and it is delicious!
This may sound kind of ridiculous, (and I’m not exactly comfortable talking about it)…but I’m a portrait model.
I have to sit still for long periods of time while professional artists paint my picture.
It’s not easy, my back and neck always get sore and tight after sitting in the same position for soo long! Don’t worry, they do give me breaks every 30 minutes!!
But it is a very cool job. Today there were 4 artists painting me and they all had a totally different take on the pose. It’s so fascinating, they are soo talented and amazing.
Have you tried socca? Do you say chickpeas or garbanzo beans?
Are you a do-it-yourself kind of person like I am?
What’s a cool/interesting/rare job that you have had?
