Yes, my title rhymes. I actually didn’t mean it to but hey, I’m going with it.
Today is a Marvelous in My Monday. I haven’t done one these in a while and I am so glad that I get to today! Thanks Katie!
My marvelous has to do with a recipe and food for thought of course, so stay will me here.
Food For Thought:
If I ask my husband what his plan is for the day, he often begins with the statement,
“I’m going to try to……” run this errand, train this long, complete this chore, pay this bill, meet up with this person, etc. etc. etc.
He’s a smart man, he knows that he should never set anything in stone with our daily plans because they often change, and HOURLY! But trying is just as good in my book, that’s if you really DO TRY!
This year we are TRYING to save more, TRYING to spend less, but still TRYING to eat well and stress less.
My $2 5lb cauliflower baby I got from the farmers Market, my homemade chocolate protein pudding (with a side of marshmallows of course), and my thrifty quick and easy tuna cakes (recipe instagramed here).
This year I am TRYING to get more organized (slowly but surely), heck I might even update my recipe page. Wish me luck trying!
This year I am TRYING to listen to what my body needs DAILY versus weekly, and I am TRYING to NURTURE the time and relationships I have in my (our) life.
This year I am TRYING to expand Healthy Bites. Trying to get these bites MORE readily available and to MORE people. It’s my passion and career. Yes, scary and risky, but I gotta try!
We never know what we can do until we TRY. Am I right? But then again, trying gives us wiggle room.
I may have overslept , I may have not completed all the things on my to do list, and I may have not budgeted properly this week but at least I tried and will
TRY harder next week. E is for Effort in this picture or EEEEEK!
That’s how the Cotter household is functioning these day. Trying our hardest but not sweating the small stuff. I find that in the end, it can be pretty Marvelous, yes?
Speaking of Marvelous and Spending less money, this weekend I through together a grain-free bread recipe from the ingredients in our pantry. Trying to save money on GF bread by making our own. And trying to save money on ingredients by making my own almond meal flour, etc. Hello THRIFTY!
- 1 cup Mila (chia flour) or Flaxseed meal
- 4 eggs (separated)
- 1/3 cup coconut milk or kefir
- 2 tbsp coconut butter or other butter/oil
- 1 1/2 cup almond meal (I just grounded up my own almond meal)
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup shredded veggies (like zucchini, carrots, cauliflower, etc)
- 1 tbsp dried herbs
- 1/2 tbsp caraway seed (optional)
- 1 tsp orange peel (optional)
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp baking powder
- few drops of stevia or honey if you want it sweeter
- place all your dry ingredients in a bowl, mix well. Set you egg yolks in one bowl and your egg white in another. Whip your egg whites until you get peaks. Fold your eggs into the dry mixture and then your egg white, mix well. Add in your creamer or kefir for extra moisture. Mix and then mash batter (it will be thick) into a greased bread pan. Bake at 375F for 55 minutes or so.
- Serve with butter, cream cheese, etc. DELISH!
Let me know if you try it!
Do you prefer trying or do you need a set plan? What’s works best for you?
