Don’t worry about me if I start to look a little orange.
But it’s all in the name of MUFFINS!
Oh yes, that is filling you see peaking out.
I’m calling this one Inside Out Carrot Cake. Mmmmm
It still needs a little work (and I need more muffins!) so look for the recipe to be posted tomorrow morning.
I woke up with leftover grated carrots in the fridge and a hankering for gooey carrot cake
Best oats in a while.
- 1/2 cup thick rolled oats
- ~1/2 cup grated carrots
- 1 cup water
- 2 T peanut flour
- homemade coconut butter disc
- 1 T chopped walnuts & almonds
This bowl was hearty chewy deliciousness. And super filling, I almost didn’t finish it.
Today is one of those days when I am really missing having a gym. It’s rainy and windy and I did my best indoor workout yesterday (strength intervals, a la Core Four). What’s a girl to do?
My body says, “yes, PLEASE!” but my mind says “nah, really not in the mood”.
Ironically, ever since I set my goal for February of practicing lots of yoga, my yoga-doing has significantly declined. I think it’s due in part to ending my month at the gym a few weeks ago. I was really dedicated to a three times a week yoga class attendance for that month and am having a challenge transitioning back into a home practice.
All I need to do is roll out the mat and commit to 20 minutes, that’s really all it will take to remind myself that I my mind wants yoga too. Do I sound like I am trying to talk myself into it? Well, yeah I am a little bit.
Do you practice yoga? If so, are you a dedicated class attendee or solely a solo yogi? I think that there is deep value in each, a teacher can be invaluable and the energy you get from other students can really help you push through challenges. It is empowering to create your own practice, be it 5 minutes or an hour, and really nice to have it available anytime you want it, no studio required.
Alright, enough talk, time for some action. Where’s that mat.
