Hola mis amigos! How are you doing today? 😉
Today was the second day of late-start, and I took full advantage of it! (Went to FM at 8 in the morning, and bought sunflower seeds for… $0.18! I was able to pay with a quarter!)
I needed them for Ani Phyo’s Love-The-Chicks Pâté, but the peeling the skin with our bare fingers…was painful. (so people, buy sunflower seeds that are actually peeled/skinned. It makes it A LOT easier. FM didn’t have ’em, and I didn’t want roasted, so I decided to use my hands)
Yes, we really did this for 2 hours. (one hour before school, and one hour after). Thank goodness it wasn’t all at once. And this wasn’t enough, so I added the rest of the ungrounded flax seed I had, and that was close enough. (2 hours and 1/4 cup? What the heck!) Oh well, I just hope the finger pain disappears soon. 🙂
But before Michael came over (At 7:35 am), I made this raw baby!
This is the Mango Breakfast Cobbler from Ani Phyo’s recipe, and we had it after school, and I have to say, it’s REALLY sweet! (so if you’re a sweet-tooth, you’ll love ’em for sure!) The crust part of mine was flattened and fit in to the container, but the actual recipe had it mixed with the fillings, so I made a “mess” and mixed everything together. It’s still in my fridge, and I think it’d taste great if you add souy vanilla yogurt to it! What’s your favorite fruit?
Here’s a Review Alert for today!
Mojo from Clif Bar. It was Chocolate Peanut flavor, 70% organic, and honestly, very peanut butter-y! (I don’t usually eat things like this, especially in the morning, but 1. it was $1.00 at WFs and 2. my stomach was grumbling like a monster. It’s a once in a while case, so it’s okay) To learn more about this product, go here.
Oh yes! You know how long Michael’s hair is, right?
Yesterday, this poor guy got a haircut (totally against his will), and he turned out like this!
Now he looks like a 5-year old! It’s quite cute and innocent. 😉 (The first word that came out of my mouth was “Kawaii!” [which means “cute” in Japanese]) His little brother looks just like him, too, so it’s double the cuteness when I see both of them.
So for the last couple of days, I’ve been going ABSOLUTELY CRAZY with making Averie’s balls:
And today, I got reaaaaaaaaaaaaaallly creative, and I made Raw Mint Chocolate Chip Dough Balls and Raw Mint Chocolate Dough Balls!!!!
The ones in the back are the (ones I made first) Raw Mint Chocolate Chip Dough Balls, and the ones in the front are the Raw Mint Chocolate Dough Balls!
For both, I just added a little dash of Pure Peppermint Extract (warning: DO NOT LICK IT!! It will sting your tongue and stay like that for a while!), and voila! The mint-y-ness turned juuuuuuust right.
If you take a closer look at them…
Actually, this one turned out to be a Chocolate Ball because I had some Chocolate Chips left over in the FP from the Chocolate Chip Dough Balls. 😉 Accidental, but it was a great accident. They both taste good, minty, and chocolaty. Would there be a repeat? Heck yes!
Woo! Lots and lots of creations, eh? It’s really fun, and seriously, it’s A LOT better than eating those cookies out of the packaged box. No weird unpronouncable chemical names, no preservatives, no bad stuff period. It’s better than any home-baked cookies, and it’s as healthy as it can get! (without losing its sweetness/chocolateness, of course) 😉 What’s your favorite raw dessert recipe?
Before I finish, raw/high-raw/vegans! I have a question for you all that I can really use an answer to! What do you have for dinner? Do you have just a salad? Or do you have a whole meal plan? Someday (sooner or later), I want to have a all-raw day, but I don’t know what to have for dinner, and I need some ideas. If anyone has a good idea, please share! I’m open to any ideas! 🙂
Have a good day and thaaaaaaaaaaaanks for coming! 🙂
