How was everyone’s Hump Day going? Seattle was BEAUTIFUL today! Crazy since Seattle is never sunny in January!
I started with decaf coffee and a nice breakfast.
4 scrambled egg whites, green onion, faux sausage and cilantro, with WW toast and an apple with cinnamon.
And some trailmix at about noon – once I start eating it I can’t stop! haha
I decided that I as in a baking mood today. I tied on my apron and got busy! First up: Vegan Lavender Shortbread cookies!
It was dark and I couldn’t get any decent lighting! BUT I am planning on taking more pictures tomorrow. These are a delicate shortbread type cookie. They have real dried organic lavender that I grew this summer and a hint of citrus zest. They are completely different but so delightful!
Next I made a batch of Chocolate Oaties.
These were an experiment, and I need to do some tweaking. Cocoa powder, coconut, oatmeal and white chocolate chips. I need to up the cocoa and sweetener, omit the white chocolate with semi-sweet or dark chocolate, and add more liquid as they were quite dry. BUT I am eating them now with some decaf coffee, and they are a great cookie with coffee!
I made small batches of each and froze the rest of the batter. I am planning on making the Lavender cookies for the Bake Sale For Haiti.
I was also baking today because I want to start looking into selling my baked goods. I have ALWAYS wanted my own bakery/deli! And now that I am eating healthy, I want to offer baked goods to people that care about what they eat, too. Organic, natural, mostly vegan and 100% made with care.
I guess I have been inspired by Angela and her Glow Bars, thinking “That’s what I have always wanted to do!”. So why not? I have some research to do but keep your eye out for more details on this little adventure. PS – I have SO MANY ideas and dreams; I really have a hard time prioritizing them! =)
Dinner was pesto spinach pasta, Brussels sprouts and Caesar salad.
Since I trust all of your input, would you buy organic, natural baked goods, not necessarily mine but in general? I have been making breads, cookies and pastries; all organic, natural and healthy. I feel like this isn’t a substitute for a job but to make healthy alternatives to everyday food available to people who care about their health.
