Why Don't I Eat More of This?!


This...


becomes this...



I was recently feeling like I needed to jump start another health kick because I've been drinking too much and too often. It helps me drink less wine if I focus on eating healthy and drinking healthy. I'm currently loving all things Chaco Canyon and what better place to go when you're trying to eat healthy?! 

There are many great things to order there but one day recently I wanted to go the extra step and get something super healthy. I ordered a bowl with brown rice, steamed veggies and tahini sauce. Holy moly. I was expecting something that tasted so healthy you want to chuck it in the garbage and go get a croissant. Not the case. It was delicious.

I've since ordered it several times and this week I made it myself. I haven't had tahini that good so I did a Chaco drive-by and bought a side of tahini. I steamed my own veggies for a few minutes (kale, cabbage, carrot, chard), tossed them with a touch of salt, pepper and lemon juice, and put them on top of leftover brown rice, then smothered it in tahini sauce. Serve with a juice, smoothie or kombucha and you are golden. Delicious AND healthy.

If you know how to make great tahini dressing, share your recipe por favor so I don't have to do the Chaco drive-by.

Now I'm curious...where's Chaco Canyon? I remember seeing the sign, but I can't think of where it is.

I think it's on the corner of 50th and 12th. Between the university district and I5. So yummy!
