A Time For Baking

Happy Friday Eve! I am so thankful that tomorrow is the last day of the work week. It is time for a couple of days off work. The husband and I are going up to Raleigh this weekend to spend time with some good friends and watch the Clemson Tigers play! It should be a good weekend.

Thursday started with a couple of bites of Stonyfield Farms yogurt and some coffee, sweetened with Agave nectar.

At work, I had an apple, 1/2 banana, and some grapes. Lunch was this delicious veggie sandwich from a local cafe. It had sprouts, cucumber, avocado, Russian dressing, smoked gouda, and tomatoes all on focaccia bread. YUM YUM

When I got home from work, I was unable to run (due to bad weather again!)so what else would I do but bake! I rarely get time at home to just try something. Sooo.. I tried to make a granola bar! My ingredients included:

  • rolled oats
  • vanilla
  • cinnamon
  • flax seeds
  • pine honey
  • almond butter
  • pomegranate arils
I didn't measure it all out, just eye-balled it since I had never made this before. I baked it at 350 for 20 minutes.

The result was pretty good. The husband even had half and thought it was good. It just needs a little tweaking. After I did some packing and rummaging all through my closet, I decided to make french toast for dinner. I haven't had french toast in quite some time and after seeing Caitlin's, I decided I would have it.
I made it just like hers.. mostly..
I used:
  • 3 eggs
  • a couple of splashes of almond breeze
  • flax seeds
  • cinnamon
  • vanilla
  • 3 pieces of bread
I toasted the bread first and then mixed all the other ingredients and soaked the bread and threw it on the pan to cook. It was yummy!

Overall, it has been a good evening. I would have really liked to run though!! *sigh*

I feel as though my eating habits have gotten much healthier. I no longer crave as many of the bad foods that I used to. Eating healthy is definitely something that takes time and requires dedication and a lifestyle change. I certainly think this blog helps because I feel I need to photograph my food and "fess up" about what I eat. It keeps me honest. For anyone out there that is struggling to maintain healthy habits, keep it up. You will feel so good about yourself if you keep going! YOU ARE AMAZING
