Crimson Sunset

In addition to the very sweet life I lead, I also partake in fruits and vegetables, it’s a very necessary balance and in my opinion, a delicious one. I’ve been dubbed the salad queen for my frequent piles of greens along with anything and everything in both my refrigerator and cupboard. I consume a lot of fruit, like a lot a lot. Which is all to say, I love sugary confections, and I also love produce.

I was the recent recipient of a juicer, and have been much enjoying tossing a variety of goods down the chute to create rainbow cups. The below combination made for a well rounded, lightly sweet, deep crimson sunset.

2 (or so) cooked beets

3 oranges

2 mangos

4 carrots

If you enjoy your juice cold, be sure to store your goods in the refrigerator before preparing. The day prior, quarter and steam beets (I don’t actually know if they need to be cooked, but it worked), then return to refrigerator. Cut a slice or two of orange for your glass, and then remove the orange rinds leaving little baldy spheres. Cut mangos and peel them, making about four quadrants out of each. Cut carrots into three portions so they’re more manageable for the juicer.

To my understanding, you want to drink juice fresh, so when you’re ready to enjoy, press produce according to the instructions of your respective machine admiring the pretty colors as you stir to combine. Pour your juice, plop a couple ice cubes in if so desired, serve with a little pizazz, and feel juiced up and ready to start your day.

Shoot For the Stars, If You Miss, You’ll Land on Breakfast

I frequently have multiple, vivid dreams a night, and am grateful for when I often remember them. They span from the obscure and crazy, to fantastical and beautiful. In naming the site Moon Crumb, I drew from a bank of inspiration and ideas, and it is in part a nod to the dreamscapes that I tumble about in through the night. More on the name some other time. When I go to bed at night, and when I wake up in the morning, I’m thinking about breakfast. I. love. breakfast. In my life, I’m going to shoot for the stars and at least land on breakfast.

I love to come up with flavorful, iced coffee recipes. I’m partial to iced, or blended lattes, I just am. In this case, I tossed up a mix that I’ll happily revisit tomorrow morning, and maybe the next after that.

For some savory, because a sweet and savory breakfast combo is a beautiful thing, I combined some refrigerator offerings for a well rounded, mountainous piled breakfast sandwich.

Absolutely edit the recipes to your own liking, dream up whatever concoction tickles your fancy, and enjoy on the back patio, share with a friend, or while listening to your favorite podcast. I’m fortunate to get to combine these all together while munchin.
