Grilled Peaches with Maple Syrup and Vanilla Ice Cream

My sister grilled some peaches over the July 4th weekend which gave me the idea for this recipe. This is so so easy to make and is a great snack, dessert or breakfast. Peaches are in season and they are just so delicious. Make sure you buy softer peaches so they are juicy and sweet when you bite into them.

Keep the peaches out of the fridge so they soften and you can cut and pit them easily. I try to buy organic ones and I feel them before I purchase. Peaches are so amazing. They are the best snack and so refreshing when it's hot out (the weather in NYC is insane this week). I bought non-GMO peaches from Trader Joe's this week and I'm almost done them. I made this recipe to give them a little twist and change from just cutting them up and eating them for a snack. I whipped up this recipe for breakfast and it took under 10 minutes. You don't need to add ice cream, sprinkle pecans on them or just eat them with maple syrup drizzled over them.

Two peaches, cut in half and pitted
2 tbsp of maple syrup
Two scoops of vanilla ice cream
2 tbsp of coconut oil

Cut the peaches in two halves and remove the pits. Brush the inside of the peaches with coconut oil and pour the rest of the oil into a small pan. Place the peach halves facedown in the pan and turn the heat on medium. Grill both sides of the peaches for about 4 minutes each; the peach will become softer and warm. Transfer to a plate, pour the maple syrup over the peaches and top with ice cream. Serve immediately.

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!

How to Make Fluffy Basmati Rice

I'm always and forever trying to make rice like they make at Indian or Persian restaurants. It's so delicious, fluffy and flavorful and I love the texture of basmati rice. So, I was talking to a friend who makes rice alot and he helped me with the recipe. The idea is to sautee the rice first and add ingredients that will give it flavor such as garlic, onion, spices etc. I serve the rice with beans or tofu, either sauteed or in a curry sauce. Rice is just so amazing, it's simple but nutritious and is a great alternative to bread or other grains.
