Thank you thank you thank you!!! Seriously you guys know how to make girls feel so special and loved. Thank you so much for the sweet words and I hope that my face update will help some of you that might still be suffering. Again if you have any questions about the OCM method for washing face please let me know! Michelle and I plan on doing a few more follow-up posts to that face update as we have more ideas and thoughts to share.
Yesterday was an overall good day for us. We were both productive in getting things checked off our lists. That always feels good. There is something about crossing things off your to-do list that makes you feel so good.
And we think we created the ‘new’ best bread recipe. That is grain-free. Really free of all allergens, well besides eggs. But we are working on egg-free version too. More on that below.
Lori: Yesterday was yoga day! Learning to be present every day! Yoga reminds me of that!
Michelle: 30 minutes of yoga…a lot of twisting, which I needed! I felt so tight yesterday morning so yoga was a bit of a challenge. I did practice my headstands and did my push-ups for #whatsbeautiful challenge. One thing I learned from my yoga practice yesterday was learn to keep calm when things get tough, or tight in my case. Or even if you fall, like I did many times during it. But I just got back up and got back in it.
A very very green juice (kale, romaine, ginger, mint, cucumber) with eggs cooked up with bananas and coconut oil. Love our runny egg yolks. Sprinkled with cinnamon.
Played in the kitchen more with a few new plantain recipes. Yes we are obsessed. #sorrynotsorry
Just when you find something that you feel your body is really liking it is hard not to eat it.
Also tried making some plantain socca. Yep you heard us right… plantain socca. It almost came out. One last adjustment to it before we share.
People keep asking what kind of plantains we use – well they normally look this. A little green, little yellow and sometimes have brown spots. We have not tried a full green one yet or a black plantain yet. Normally in the middle.
Cutting and peeling is always fun! haha Can be a bit of a challenge.
Back to our plantain bread like we have mentioned before we love using plantains now as our base in recipes (use them instead of flours), it is a great way for us to cut back on relying on coconut flour or protein powder in recipes. Just adds in more variety in our baking too.
We were so excited that our simple plantain breakfast cake recipe made for an amazing grain-free bread! Gluten-free too!
When we first made our 3 ingredient breakfast cake it already was more bread-like in texture so we had a good feeling that just reducing the eggs would still work!
Oh yay!! We enjoyed the ultimate sandwich. Seriously cannot remember the last time we had a sandwich…probably when we enjoyed another amazing sandwich a few years ago.
We devoured this sandwich! Plantain bread = brilliant!
Our sandwich was stacked with coconut oil, avocado, yellow summer squash slices and some turkey.
Both felt like a little snack before dinner so we whipped up an carob duck egg pancake topped with coconut oil. (Lori mixed some coconut oil with coconut flour for hers, Michelle just did coconut oil). We seem to make these random pancake snacks frequently. What can we say they are quick to make and tasty.
Lori: Dinner was sautéed kale, turnips, avocado, and tuna. Topped with coconut oil.
Enjoyed a nice simple dinner, just like Lori!
A wonderful day of being productive and being able to enjoy truly amazing food! We feel very blessed.
