Meh.. I kind of let this week go. I mean, after Monday’s tragic event and then the West Texas explosion, I really didn’t have much to talk about or share. I mean, I could have, but honestly I had nothing to say. Just a lot of prayer and heart felt grieving. I think it’s needed, to go through the motions that is. To grieve with and for others. Then we can turn around and BE STRONG the days following. Yes!
But I also had a FULL week. Lot’s of Healthy Bite orders, a sickly husband who needed some tender lovin’ care, and a NEW NIECE! Yes, my 3rd niece! Born on Monday, the 15th! She has been a blessing during this time. New life, so pure and innocent, blessed us just when our hearts were needing a little more FAITH!
Welcome Harper Faith Taylor. You are LOVED and YOU are what makes this week FAITHFUL.
It’s times like these I realize that no one can steal your joy, your passion, your purpose! No matter what turn of events takes place, God always shows the good in the midst of it. He shows us how to BE STRONG for OTHERS, to BE LOVING, to BE THANKFUL.. each and every day!
As a wife of a professional “racer,” I am always at that finish line, waiting, cheering, supporting. Nothing will change that.
Nothing can change my passion to be a sherpa wife. Nothing can change my husband’s passion for racing, for running, for triathlon.
And even more so, nothing can change the fact that we are BONDED in community, built on FAITH FILLED miles, sweat, and high fives.
This weekend take the time to run, walk, swim, bike, lift, etc. with a FAITH FILLED heart. Then go share a meal/break bread/coffee/etc. and embrace this wonderful FAITH FILLED community.
Thank you Jason for letting us share our love of FOOD and more with this wonderful community.
Gluten Free Baked Cinnamon Raisin Cashew French Toast with Honey Almond Custard (topping)
- Gluten Free Cinnamon Raisin Bread (I use Udi’s bread)
- 1 egg or 1/3 cup egg whites
- 1/2 cup milk (I used almond milk)
- 1 tbsp honey
- cinnamon (to taste)
- small handful or less of raw cashews
- fresh fruit to garnish
- almond butter and/or peanut flour to use for the topping.
Preheat oven to 375F. Lightly oil a baking dish/cookie sheet and set aside. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, honey, and milk. Whisk together. Coat each piece of bread in your egg batter and then place on baking dish or cookie sheet. Spread your cashews on top and sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake for 15 minutes, then flip over bread and broil for another 1-2 minutes. Be careful you don’t burn the cashews. While the French toast is baking, take your left over batter (eggs, milk, honey) and microwave for 30 seconds. This will make a nice custard like texture. Add in 1 spoonful of melted almond butter and stir until smooth. This will be your topping. Once the bread is baked, add your honey almond topping and fresh fruit. Drizzle with syrup or honey.
