Today’s day off has been a mishmash of cooking, relaxing, cleaning and eating… I can’t complain too much 🙂
For a snack, I munched on a piece of multigrain toast w/avocado and roasted red pepper hummus:
Afterwards, I realized that I had a lot of time to kill before my gym date with my bestie around 4ish, SOOOOO I decided to get cookin’! My first project was a Crustless Spinach Quiche recipe I saw in my FoodNetwork magazine from the other day:
Yum, I LOVE quiche. Since trying to lower my intake of processed and high sugar foods, I’ve come to adapt and love crustless quiche. This recipe was fun because I got to use the FOOD PROCESSOR that I got for christmas 🙂
Note my cute snowman mug (who had made a previous showing in another post) 🙂
After quiche, I still was itchin’ to do some cooking…well, baking, specifically. I decided to make Super-Charge Me! Cookies from the book Eat, Drink and Be Vegan. As you have probably noticed by now, I am not vegan or vegetarian, but like to dabble in all of the recipes simply because they’re healthy and delicious. I kept seeing them on Jenna’s blog Eat, Live, Run and thought I should give them a try.
The only difference in my batch is that I used almond extract instead of vanilla (ran out), added in a few extra dried fruits and nuts, added in a little agave, and doubled the amount of unsweetened coconut.
These cookies will definitely become a staple in my weekend baking. So gooooood.
Now I’m off to get changed and head to the gym for a super weight/cardio day! Woo!
See you all later! <3,
