Hola! (Seriously, hola…I so wish I was back in the Caribbean right now. It’s so cold and windy in Charlotte. I shouldn’t complain though as some of you are digging out from snow…again.) But really, when is spring going to actually arrive this year? It’s going to be a cold Easter and the 10 day forecast isn’t looking super promising. Okay, I’m talking about the weather. Moving on…
Guess who ate eggs and chicken apple sausage for breakfast Monday morning?
And not just any eggs – perfect eggs! I love this fail-proof method for cooking eggs. Okay, now I’m talking about eggs at length. Equally as sad as the weather. Next topic…
Lunch bowls have continued. This one was a bit sad and used the last of whatever was left in my fridge. Brown rice, white beans, kalamata olives, diced tomatoes, avocado, smoked salmon and Greek yogurt. I officially have no fresh food after the fruit I ate with breakfast and the last of the veggies here. Must get to the store soon.
Check out what I came across in Bon Appetit as I was eating my lunch…a recipe for a bean and rice bowl with avocado much like some of the bowls I blogged about last week. See, I’m not totally crazy in my love for throw it in a bowl and call it a meal.
Look what I made! I went two whole weeks without eating sweets/processed carbs but last weekend I finally needed a little something. I whipped up these flourless peanut butter cookies but subbed honey for the sugar so that they stayed relatively “clean.” The honey changed the texture significantly and I had to chill the dough prior to baking so that it firmed up a bit but these are great little treats. Very gooey in the center and peanut butter-y.
Flourless Peanut Butter and Honey Cookies
– 1 cup peanut butter
– 1/2 cup honey
– 1 teaspoon vanilla
– 1 egg
– Chocolate chips (optional)
– Sea salt (for finishing)
Mix everything together. Chill dough for about 30 minutes. Drop onto a baking sheet lined with parchment and lightly press down with a fork in a criss cross pattern. Sprinkle with sea salt. Bake for about 8-10 minutes.
Look who’s working with me today. We’re off to coach CrossFit. 😉
