Looking for breakfast muffins that aren’t just cake in disguise? This is actually a recipe from Simplify Your Life by Elaine St. James — it’s her husband Gibbs’ recipe. Bake them the night before, and they’re perfect in the morning (and for days to come). A little honey or jam makes them perfect. Gibbs Banana Oat Bran Muffins Recipe.
Found this great article on mastering your own mind … moving beyond habitual thoughts and unconscious actions (as Chopra says, “distractions are a multi-billion-dollar business”), to deliberate focus on higher goals. Thought you might love it, too.
NOTE: Why isn’t this post about food? Because life is more than food … and this blog will be, too, from time to time. Thanks for indulging me!
I’m not a vegetarian, but find I generally feel better when I focus on non-meat food sources. Today, I was out looking for ways to use up some cashew cream that I’d made, and stumbled onto the My New Roots blog’s Raw Cashew Dreamcake recipe. Working with what I had on-hand, I had to substitute cranberries for the raspberries, but this was AMAZING. Give it a try and let me know your thoughts!
As I’ve said before, I’m NOT a fan of compromise …in any form, really, but particularly not in something as important as what I eat. But there are a lot of simple substitutions you can make without even impacting the deliciousness of your favorite recipes … and sometimes even making them tastier!
Give these a try and let me know what you think:
- Replace sodas with sparkling water. Add muddled fruit for a flavor boost: this time of year, try ginger and lemon, or fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice!
