I drink plenty more water throughout the day as well...I probably drink about 80 ounces a day.
We had a nice Mediterranean spread for dinner tonight, full of herbs and greens from our garden. I have made this meal before and linked the blog post with a few of the recipes above (and here). Rice pudding recipe below!
Vanilla Peach Rice Pudding
1 1/3 cup water
2/3 cup vanilla almond milk
1 peach, cut into chunks
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1. Soak your rice for an hour or so before cooking.
2. Drain your rice. Transfer to a pot and bring rice and 1 1/3 cup water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover the pot, and let cook for 15 minutes, or until all of the water is absorbed.
3. While that is cooking, cut up your peach and transfer to a bowl. Combine with almond milk and vanilla.
4. Once the rice is done, add it to your bowl and mix everything together. Enjoy warm immediately or chill in the refrigerator until you are ready!
