As I have stated before, sometimes the most random songs pop into my head when I make food. Am I the only one out there that remembers the cartoon Doug on Nickelodeon? Here’s a picture of Doug and his dog, Pork chop.
“Fast food feels fuzzy
Cause it tastes like stuff that’s scuzzy
I used to feel like such a nerd
I refused to eat that strange bean curd
I didn’t eat it -ow- but it ate you
I eat my sugared cereal
But it makes my teeth bacterial
If you’re feeling kind of cruddy
Just stick beside your buddy
And don’t eat too much fried food -ow-

For some reason, this song popped in my head after I decided to pick up a box of silken tofu from the local health foods store this weekend:
After looking at the label and seeing that it could be used in smoothies, I decided to give it a try. I figured if it worked, it would be a great way to sneak in some extra protein in the morning to aid in my running recovery.
“Aw-we-oo killer tofu!!!!!”
I ended up using the silken tofu as a dairy replacement. I used about half of the box of tofu and then added some water to my blender and blended until it was liquified. Then I added a half of a banana, about two handfuls of strawberries, and a handful of spinach and blended. It was yummy! The lovely thing about tofu is that it will take the taste of whatever you blend/cook it with. So, don’t be afraid–try it!
Unfortunately, I got so wrapped up in my creation that I forgot to take a picture of it, but you get the drift. (picture from here).
And I know I am not the only one out here that remembers that song…lol
