Cooking with Fatty Episode 6: Smoked Salmon Bagel

2015 is still off to a great start. Staying on track with our #fitlifestyle, the fatty and I got up early on a Sunday for yoga class at 24. Unfortunately, Merry flaked on us. So, we ended up doing some downward dogs and warrior poses on our own followed by a half-assed bicep, shoulder and back workout. Hehe, better than just a Sunday lounging all day in PJs right? (:

And as a reward to our body for working so hard. we juiced and made an awesome brunch.


Juiced: 2 apples, 1 beet, 1/2 cucumber, 2 carrots, 4 celery stalks, 1/2 lemon, thumbful of ginger root
Blended: Handful of kale, spinach and parsley
Yielded: 3 mason jar-ful

The beet gave the juice a really pretty red color. After blending though, it turned into a brownish color. I am a veggie person, so I am not sure if the unfavorable (to some) or earthy flavor of the veggie is actually masked from juicing. It's enough to say that the fatty (carnivore) and I (omnivore*) both enjoy the juices and smoothies we have been making.

Today's new ingredient is beet. We never juiced any beet before. The flavor I'd say is rather mellow because we tasted a lot more of the greens. Maybe we will experiment with a beet-heavy juice next time to really taste what beet is.

While we were juicing, our bagel was also toasting in the oven ready for some delicious toppings!

Top: Mixed greens (from Sam's Club), smoked salmon (from TJ's) and poached egg!

Ah, simple good-ness. This took no time to put together, but tasted and photographed so well. The poached egg was a bit challenging to make, especially with Fatty's electric stove. The key takeaways I discovered this time are having the water at a nice simmer when you drop the egg in and also not stirring during the 4-5 minute cook time.

Here's a sample of what it would look like if you fail to follow the key instructions.
And here's what it should look like:

Enjoy! Hope everyone had a great weekend with good eats!
