Wednesday again..... Half way through the work week. I am super excited because my organic Cacao Nibs came in the mail yesterday. I ordered them off amazon.com and they came as two bags I am super excited to use them. Notice the Bag Says Mayan Super food :) Doesn't that make you feel good? It makes me feel good, I love that Chocolate aka Cacao in its very natural form is really good for you.
I decided to make Chocolate Macaroons with my organic super food Cacao, now it doesn't look that great in the bowl but I assure they taste really YUMMY.
1 1/2 Cups unsulphered, dried Flaked Coconut
3 TBS Almond or Cashew butter
4-8 TBS Agave nectar or (real)maple syrup
2 TBS Coconut Butter
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
pinch of salt
1/4 cup Cocoa Powder or Carob Powder
1/4 Cup Cacao Nibs and Gogi Berries
Stir all ingredients together in a bowl, Roll into balls and refrigerate.
Freeze for longer storage
Healthy Dinner Ideas
I don't like to spend lots of time cooking dinner in the evening so these two dinners from this week were perfect and we enjoyed both of them so they were worth a picture and post.
Baked Parmesan Chicken with a Side of Broccoli
Deviled Eggs and Black Bean Brownies for Dessert
Small Avocado filled with Quinoa and topped with shredded cheese,
then warned up in microwave for a few seconds to melt the cheese
served with some chips and salsa on the side
I used to be really good about having my breakfasts all ready to go for myself in the morning, and I always had oatmeal in a small container that I could eat at work. Lately my breakfasts have been kind of inconsistent and I was thinking that I wanted to get back to my oatmeal routine. So I am trying some overnight oats.
3/4 cup Old Fashioned Oats
1/2 Cup Milk
1 1/2 TBS Peanut Butter
2 Tsp Brown Sugar or Honey
1 Tsp Chia
1 Tsp Flax
(I also through on a couple of dark chocolate nibs since I had them out)
Leave in Bowl over night, and Milk if needed in the AM
I Hope this is Yummy!!!!
