Last night, my friends and I celebrated Galentine’s Day.
I cooked plain and chocolate chip pancakes from scratch and we topped them with bananas, blueberries, strawberries, and Nutella accompanied by mimosas.
But what I should have made is a [healthier] pumpkin pancake like the ones I made a week ago. The recipe contained raisins, honey, and yogurt. And they were remarkable.
Although we didn’t have dessert (or need it considering the toppings we added), I could have made double chocolate cookies like I did last weekend. They are perfect for a chocolate craving. I questioned just how delicious they would be considering the recipe used almond flour and zero granular sugar, but they, too, were amazing. They were so easy- there was no need for a mixer.
It certainly has become something to look forward to each week: cooking or baking new things. It’s exciting to cook up the same foods I normally would while using ingredients I normally wouldn’t have chosen. Even more, I know I’ll be repeating these recipes.
Last night, I also signed up for my next half-marathon: Let’s Move Festival of Races. This was my first half-marathon (2013) and will also be my tenth. Now time to work nutritious meals into my training.
