I've recently been enjoying more oatmeal for breakfast...
I have a great technique that cooks it perfectly; I heat 1/2 cup of water and add 1/2 cup rinsed rolled oats, then let it sit for 10-15 minutes while I make the kids their breakfast.
By the time I come back to it, it's not only cooked to chewy perfection, but it has cooled enough to top and eat. This morning, I added fresh blueberries, a drizzle of honey, and some freshly made vanilla hemp milk. Delicious!
Since I've recently been enjoying hummus more, I've needed a quick vehicle for its transport into my mouth...
I love veggies, but I'm not the craziest about how they taste with hummus, and while my favorite way to eat it is with tortilla chips, I don't tolerate corn the best...so, I made crackers!
I can't get enough of these crackers, and they're so easy to make! Only four ingredients, and they taste like crispy Artisan flatbread. They are just awesome with my Secret Tahini-Free Hummus.
For lunch, we had my Coconut Flour Pizza Crust, which I am absolutely loving right now!
We topped it with my Homemade Pizza Sauce, raw milk cheese, and fresh basil.
For dinner, I had a trio of healthy foods...
Quinoa mixed with homemade nut-free pesto, sautéed, lemon-garlic kale, and chopped cucumbers. I topped it all with a smoky hemp butter/apple cider vinegar dressing that complemented everything nicely.
For dessert, I made a batch of low sugar chocolate chip quinoa cookies...
No one else in my house enjoys these (or quinoa, for that matter) so there's more for me! I make an entire dozen with just one tablespoon of sweetener and a sprinkle of stevia, and I use a combination of 85% dark chocolate and unsweetened dark chocolate for the 'chips'.
It's truly amazing how I've been able to retrain my taste buds lately to tolerate less and less sugar, and these are perfect for me.
