Cheeses Garbanzo Paste

image

I made some garbanzo paste this morning for breakfast.

Ingredients:

1 cupped cooked garbanzos

1 tsp salt or salt to taste

2 cloves of garlic

1/2 tsp turmeric powder (skip if you don’t mind a paler collet)

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp nutritional yeast

1/4 tsp lime juice

Method:

Add all ingredients except lime and nutritional yeast to the blender. If using a blender that is not high powered then you will need to occasionaly scrpe down the sides and add water, 1 tbsp at a time.

when smoothe, add yeast and lime juice and process to mix it in completely or you could stir it in.

Serve with crackers or on sandwiches.

I need to Exercise!

Just now I was tucking my daughter in and telling her a story. I told her, “Mary’s tummy was ver, very big because something special was in there! A baby was in there! Mary was pregnant and a little baby boy was in her belly” To which she said, “Her belly was big like yours! Mommy you pregnant!”😱

So with that, I know I need to exercise and work on NOT looking like I am still pregnant. 2 years! 2 years and still this thing in front of me refuses to go down! I have a legitimate excuse I think but it still annoys me that it is so big.

Anyway, soon it will be time for a new 30 Day Health Challenge- the one that was postponed from way up in the year!

look out for it in November since I have to get planning the activities.

Peanut Butter Oat Balls

My children love theses  quick bites. We made some today for our morning snack. Simple, quick, delicious and no cooking!

Ingredients:

– 1 cup all natural peanut butter (make sure it is gluten free)

– 1 cup quick cooking gluten free oats

– raisins (shhh. I’m actually not a fan of raisins at all but I know they are good so I try to eat a few here and there)

– 1 tbsp linseed powder (flax meal)

Method:

Mix peanut butter, flax meals and raisins together with 1 tbsp oats. Pour remaining oats onto a plate. Spoon a small amount of peanut butter mixture onto the plate of oats and roll them into a ball, pressing to adhere more oats to the ball. Repeat until all the mixture is gone.

Rainbow Ice Cream Cake

My children have bee insisting I make this cake for about a month now and I finally gave in.

i used food dye to colour the ice-cream, which I am not going to use next time. They liked it.

Now for me to get it died the natural way.

Success will mean a new recipe so wish me luck.
