How’s everyone’s weekend going so far? My day has been pretty chill. Just doing some housework, grocery shopping and getting ready for The Fallen Four Marathon Relay tomorrow. I am getting up at 4:30am so I can leave by 5:00am to meet my team at 6:00am in Whitecourt at the hotel they’re staying at. From there we’re car pooling to Mayerthorpe for the start at 7:00am. I’m excited, but I hope the weather is better tomorrow than it was today. This morning I woke up to thisNot cool my friends, not cool. It is June 4th and we got snow last night, crazy right! I think mother nature is getting back at us for having such a beautiful May long weekend.
I have a week left of my cleanse and I can’t decide if I’m going to have some dark chocolate first or red wine! I can definitely see and understand the benefits of doing a cleanse a few times a year. I feel lighter and more energetic, not quite so sluggish. I definitely miss my variety of fruit, homemade granola bars, banana whipped oatmeal, baked goods and dark chocolate. I can do it though! I was getting bored of watermelon and soaked seeds/nuts for my afternoon snacks so I came up with this amaranth macaroon.
*Inspired by the breakfast cookie
yields: 1 cookie
2/3 c amaranth, cooked
2 tbsp unsweetened coconut
1 pkg stevia
Mix all the ingredients together well. Place on a plate and shape into a large round cookie. Can be chilled an hour first to firm up or eaten as is.
This totally reminded me of a macaroon and is cleanse friendly! You could get creative and add carob chips, Goji berries, cocoa powder, or whatever you want.
