After breakfast this morning I had every intention of biking, then I got quite an urge to run. So off I went!
I prepped the best I could
Still afraid for an Injury Flare up so I rocked my knee brace for the IT band, my compression socks for my shins and my ankle brace for that pesky foot.
check, check and check. Pain free 5 miler in 49 minutes
Lunch time rolled around and I had half of a Kombacha
I love the taste and the bubbleyness of it but I was having a hard time getting past the stuff floating in it…
Lunch was inspired by Courtney’s Sweet Potato
It was SO GOOD, and very filling
I baked this bad boy for an hour at 350 but it was so freaking huge it still needed a lot more time. I am impatient so i put it in the microwave for about 6 minutes to finish it off.
I topped it with fage plain greek yogurt, cinnamon, brown sugar, maple syrup, cashews and raisins. LOVED IT
Vicki came over and we looked up Reception halls for hours! There are SO MANY that I like! I was afraid there would be none that fit my expectations. A bunch of them are pretty reasonably priced too!
My plan is to set up tours for a bunch of them, all for one day and have my mom and Scott’s mom come over for the day to join us!
Dinner was a homemade pizza! 3 sections for 3 people.
My portion had:
- whole wheat crust from whole foods
- stewed tomatoes mixed with a bit of vodka sauce
- broccoli, peppers, peas and carrots
- garlic goat cheese
- a little bit of provolone
Vicki kept mentioning that she wanted to make cookies. I decided I was going to attempt making my very first cookie from my head. NO RECIPES FOLLOWED HERE MY FRIENDS!
I set to work and created a wonderfully soft and delicious cookie!
Maple Peanut butter Drops
- 1/2 cup margarine
- 1/2 cup vegan sugar ( i liked its course texture)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 flax egg
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 2 TBSP maple syrup
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4-1/2 cup chocolate and peanut butter chips
Preheat over to 350 degrees
combine the butter and sugar until blended. Add vanilla, flax egg, peanut butter and maple syrup. Beat until smooth. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt and stir.
Add dry to wet and mix in chips
Bake for 15 minutes
I am VERY happy with these!
Scott rated them a Solid 7 ( he is super picky) and Vicki Rated them a 9! WOOOOO They really are wonderful right out of the oven. I would recommend a big glass of milk.. or almond milk 😉
