Foodie goodies: brown rice syrup, Maca & a Chia refill. Man do I consume a lot of chia lately :D. It’s cool though because when I take 1-2 tablespoons chia seeds a day I won’t have to take my pricey DHA supplement. Score.
I love how different the content of my fridge has been looking lately. Stuffed with veggies, and less other crap:
The bottom two are solely for fruits &veg, the door for milks & condiments, the rest for supplements (chia, flax, hemp, probiotics), homemade dressings and one shelf for things such as butter, philadelphia, cheese & organic meat & quark for the boy.
Yesterday I made raw almond butter and I just HAVE TO share this recipe. I would never have imagined rae almond butter coming out this creamy & delicious!
Process almonds until smooth-ish. Add coconut oil (preferably slighly warmed so it is liquid and you can slowly drizzle it in. Otherwise just throw the hardened oil in there). Scrape the content of half to one vanilla bean in there, depending on your taste preference. (taste test!). Simple as that! And so good/healthy. This reminds me, did I ever share me recipe for Marzipan Almond Butter?!
Marzipan Almond Butter
Toast almonds in the oven, 12 minutes at 200C/375F. Process until smooth, add sucanat and extract and process along. So yummy & sweet! Perfect on some fruit or with chocolate, to get that chocolate/marzipan feeling.
I seriously love snacking on brown rice cakes and this almond butter is the cherry on the cake!
Some other things I’ve been eating/drinking:
Banana Ginger/Cinnamon Smoothie
* 1 small frozen banana
Now this was a tasty salad! I love the combo of (raw) beet, carrot, pickle and olive. So refreshing & zing-y. On a bed of Romaine/spinach and topped with agave/mustard/flax oil dressing.
Less than stellar salad. I had the idea of mixing black beans with mango but that would be very poor food combining so I refrained :p. I lightly steamed the green benas, which tasted sortof weird while the rest of the salad was all raw. The cashews and dressing were amazing, but I used a bit too much dressing and it became very sweet. I made this dressing a long time ago, something with apple cider vinegar, sugar & wasabi. So awesome!
That’s it for today lovelies! I’m off to do some Yin Yang Yoga (how cool does that sound?). Enjoy your Friday!
