So for my breakfast I was in a chocolate mood..(what I didn't feel good, okay?)
but it taste just like it :)
Chocolate Elite whey protein
1 tbs of freshly ground PB
1/2 cup of almond milk
It was delicious!! You can use normal milk, store bought PB if you would like. But I'll tell you why I use this..
Well, maybe I'll just show you..
I'm lactose intolerant.. fun huh.. but I still eat some dairy.. but try to supplement when possible.. cause I just love it. Anyhoo.. Almond milk is lactose free and has healthy fat and well, you can read most of it.. Now.. I usually buy the unsweetened almond milk but Mr. B did the grocery shopping this time so I just roll with it.. So the sugar is higher then usual but its natural sugar not added :) I love all the health benefits of it.. you can check it out here.
In mist of my eye.. I figured some chocolate chip cookies would help me feel better! Don't they make everything better??
But of course I put my own little healthy twist on them..
I found this vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe here. Thanks! & Janetha also conjured up some as well :) I'm not a vegan but I do just like to experiment with different recipes..
I changed a few things & added a little here and there..
You will need.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl.
Beat nut butter, baby applesauce, agave, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add flax egg, beating well. ( I just used my handy blender, I still need to invest in a kitchen aid)
Gradually beat in flour mixture. (I just stirred it in with my dry ingredients)
Stir in morsels and a splash of milk, if necessary.
(you can use normal choc. chips if desired, I just like these, lower sugar and less calories, high antioxidant)
Drop by rounded tablespoon onto baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
They are healthy and nutritious!! These you can't be guilty about..
& yes.. they did make me feel better..
Mr. B even cleaned it up!
For lunch I snacked on some peppers and egg whites with hummus
I'm not a good egg peeler, so don't judge haha!
Then I had two pieces of ezekiel cinnamon raisin bread
(why do I LOVE this bread.. this is why. click here.
with a bit of this on top!
Its delicious.. You can find it at any WHOLE FOODS store..
Needless to say its been a relaxing day just hanging out in our Jammers, sleeping, eating, watching movies.. But since we have a limited number of beautiful Sundays.. cyclops is going to go for a walk with my little family.. maybe it will take my mind off of the throbbing eye..& I'm sure staring at the computer screen isn't helping either...
Have a happy & healthy day!
I hope it's not pink eye! It's pretty painful and really contagious. I'd get it checked if it's not better in the next few days!ReplyDelete
