Is half a thinga jicama a balanced meal? What if I add chile salt? Because that’s what’s going down for breakfast this morning, and since I’m too cheap for therapy, I’m turning to you guys to ask if an intervention is in order. Yesterday it was green juice and pork rinds. No, not for breakfast, who do you think I — yes, 100% completely for breakfast. I mean you can totally drink away chicharrones with parsley juice, yeah? That’s what I thought. So we’re cool then. Healthy as a horse. Thanks guys.
Speaking of health (they call me DJ PiggySmooth), I put together a fun little post for Full Circle this week on How to Eat Healthy When You’re on Vacation. I realize how backwards it is that I’m making health recommendations in the same breath as admitting a Mexican root vegetable addiction, but I know you guys will cut me some slack. Featuring a few sneaky moves that my Momma and I employed during last year’s most epic road trip of Southern eats — plus some good old fashioned common sense — there are a total of 15 tips that’ll help keep things (read: your diet, pooping, all that good stuff) reasonably in check when you’re on the road. That snazzster graphic below offers a super quick snapshot, but be sure to visit Full Circle’s Good Food Life blog for the full deets on each tip.
And since we’re doing a little housekeeping today, here’s a quick reminder to download the free Foodie Recipes app if you haven’t done so already. The latest edition is called ‘In Summer’ and features 40 perfectly seasonal recipes from a bunch of super talented bloggers (and even a few P&Q faves) that will have you drooling all kinds of crazy: Cantaloupe Lime Agua Fresca! Mango Chicken Salad! Grilled Pineapple, Pork Belly, Burrata and Arugula Pizza! And like a jillion things with mouthwatering, vine-ripened tomatoes. It’s basically tomato porn, which is the extra fun kind of porn because you can look at it at work. Hooray!
Peace out homies.
