Friday night I made Homemade Wheat Thins from Kitchen Stewardship. Never need to buy Wheat Thins again! Admittedly, they do take time+effort. The upside is that they are cheaper and healthier. They are tricky to bake, I burned batch #2, but I will be making these often!
The next day for lunch I had a watermelon smoothie and wheat thins with evoo+herbs and olives for lunch.
Last summer I got hooked on cubed watermelon+ginger+lime juice. Best summertime snack. Ginger is so good for you, and watermelon is low in calories. So I made a smoothie out of it.
Cubed Watermelon (about a cup per serving)
Ice (for consistency and chill)
Freshly Grated Ginger (start with about 1/2 tsp per serving… it’s strong!)
Freshly Squeezed Lemon and Lime Juice
Don’t add celery like I did. Unless you like tasting celery in your smoothie. I read that spinach is the least obtrusive “green” add in for smoothies. It has the lightest flavor, and you can add it to smoothies and hardly taste it. I didn’t want a green-tinted watermelon smoothie though.
Chia Seeds, add these after. They get pulverized in the blender.
Put it all in the blender, adding ingredients to taste. Personally I like a lot of Ginger and Lime. Another good option is freezing the watermelon, so you don’t have to use ice and can get a more flavorful smoothie.
