Hello everyone and happy ‘What I Ate Wednesday’!
My husband works a schedule where he’s gone for 24 hours at a time, so at-home circuits definitely help when I can’t make it to the gym! I’ve also pinned some really cool ones onto my Pinterest board!
As always, breakfasts are a lot of oatmeal (go figure) and pancakes!
My spelt berry crepe-cakes with vanilla raspberry syrup really hit the spot, and they’re low in sugar and fat.
I’ve been taste-testing a lot of raw desserts because I’m trying to create a great no sugar, no added fat truffle recipe, and I think I’ve finally hit upon the right combination of ingredients…
I’ll be posting this recipe on Monday, so I hope you’ll swing in for it.
I found a great one-pot recipe with quinoa and kale (two of my favorite healthy foods) on the site Food52 that I made for dinner one night…
A great easy, simple and healthy recipe! I amped up the protein a bit with some slices of hard-boiled egg, and I bet it’d be great with chickpeas too!
Finally, I’ve got a cute little snack recipe for you! I’ve always loved shaved ice, and (with the help of Glamour magazine) I figured out how to make my own!
HOMEMADE SNOW CONES
1 c. orange juice
1 c. water
1 T. honey
1 t. vanilla
8 drops liquid stevia
Blend all. Freeze (covered) in Tupperware. Once frozen, take a box grater, and grate the block of frozen juice.
It’s such a refreshing snack and great for kiddos! You can easily change up the flavor to your liking too! Try blending up some fresh mango or watermelon or even strawberries for a great summer treat.
What is your favorite snow cone flavor?
I used to love banana! The place where we’d buy our filtered water doubled as a shaved ice shop, and I couldn’t wait to go with my mom and fill up on the stuff!
