This is the look on my face at this very moment.
…the microscopic functionings of skeletal muscle tissue. Ay karumba, how are the inner-most workings of my body so complex and intelligent? Why can I not understand them when they’re HAPPENING INSIDE ME RIGHT NOW!? ARRRGH! Sneaky sneaky myofilaments, I will comprehend you yet!
On the up side, I wrapped my gob around this vegan pizza last night.
Instead of my usual cheeze (hummus, savoury yeast flaked & tumeric) I had to use baba ghanoush as it was all I had hanging around. Garlic fest! Definitely wasn’t worthy of the usual pizza-induced adulation, however with mixed beans, tomato salsa, jalepenos & a whole lotta veg, it sated the hunger pangs nicely.
Today, I created a new treat. Then I ate said treat in the space of 2 hours, using repeated trips to the freezer to interrupt my study as much as possible.
These turned out really well! Think rice-bubble crackles, only healthified.
2 tsp coconut oil
2 tbsp raw cacao powder
2 tbsp organic honey
1/4 c chopped raw almonds
1/4 c shredded coconut
1 tbsp of each: chia seeds, pepitas, sunflower seeds & goji berries
- melt coconut oil (if necessary)
- mix with cacao & honey to form ‘paste’
- throw in all other ingredients & mix well
- form into little balls (using wet hands is best, as they are stiiiiick-eee)
- freeze or refrigerate for as long as you can hold out
Makes around 12 raw, vegan, nutrient-dense balls – not a huge amount, as my incredible foresight allowed me to preempt the fact I was going to eat them all. At once. No rationing in this household!
Eeek I feel like I’m coming down with something all of a sudden. I was sneezed/vommed on by numerous children today, that’ll do it! So, I’m going to bid you farewell and attack some serious vitamin C/h2o/garlic/ginger/chilli options.
Have a good night!! xx
