(I’m also still working on setting up the blog for recipes) Got it started, but need to put stuff on it.
Anyway, I had a brown rice cake w a little neufchatel cheese and cinnamon on top on the way to work. Then once I got settled in for a real breakfast I had some rice pudding, (cup of brown rice, some coconut milk, egg, truvia/cinnamon, chopped nuts)
I had a couple almond butter cookies in there somewhere. Can of Amy’s vegetable soup for lunch (kind of an emergency keep on hand food for when I don’t prep enough food).
I drank like 4 liters of water at work, and some zingiber/coconut tea from Teavana, delicious. At home I think I had another rice cake since I was pretty hungry right away, then made an omelet w spinach, black beans, tomatos, avocado on top, some neufchatel, spicy salsa, cayenne pepper, cooked w coconut oil.
Kind of a lazy day, didn’t have a lot prepped.
oh -almond butter cookies, (since my blog is taking me longer than expected)
6 oz almond butter
1 tsp aluminum free baking powder
1/2 cp butter
1 cp stevia/xylitol/truvia
1 tsp cinnamon*
1 tsp ginger spice*
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 3/4 cups coconut flour
form into small balls, cook 400 degrees about 10 min
I tweak this recipe as sometimes they cookies can be dry/crumbly, this time I used 2/3 almond butter (the kind you grind yourself) 1/3 cashew butter (a jar brand, with some kind of oil) I know it’s best to have the grind yourself kind but I think this made the cookeis more moist. I added some dry unsweetend coconut to the tops of some of the cookies and carob chips to some. I think I actually like the “plain” ones best though. They are small and dense w the coconut flour, so it’s nice to have on hand if I need a snack quick or to satisy my sweet tooth. My sugar cravings are gone, but I just like comfort treats like hot tea and a little cookie anyway.
Oh, I also had a couple “chocolates” yesterday, I melted a 100% dark chocolate baking cocoa bar and added some xylitol, coconut oil, milk, until it tasted good then dumped in an ice cube tray. Just nice to have little treats on hand. Espeically now that it’s getting warmer! I’ve made iced chai, but does anyone have any other good cold drink recipes? Sometimes water gets boring. Maybe I’ll try some homemade lemonade/limeade.
