Thank you for all the sweet comments about Purely Fit Life! We are excited (and a little nervous) to get things rolling for it. You will also start to see some changes happening here on purelytwins from the design to some new blog post ideas. Hopefully making our readers’ experience better.
Single serving english muffin recipe that is made without eggs, dairy and gluten! Even toast-able!!
It was the happiest moment yesterday for us 🙂 Both of us were so excited to eat this but more excited to share it here with all of you! We have played around with different versions too. Each one tasting fairly similar yet a little different.
We did our 12 minute full body plank workout + some pull-ups and push-ups on the equalizer.
Perfect way to work the full body in just under 20 minutes.
Lori: I workout each day to feel stronger! Over the years I always felt strong during my workouts or daily activities, but these past few months I have been feeling even stronger than I ever have before. That strength comes from the inside as well. Each day I am eager to workout because I love the way it makes me feel.
Michelle’s Monday recap:
After a good workout I enjoyed a nice vegetable juice.
Shortly followed by a simple egg, romaine, swiss chard scramble with coconut oil.
Enjoyed a cup of bone broth while I made up lunch.
Love stuffing my nori sheets with different things plus it is a great way to use up leftovers!
And I think I win the award for ugliest food 😉 haha
This sushi nori wrap was filled with the last bit of my cauliflower/spinach mash and beef burger crumbled inside. It was delicious and a little messy.
THEN IT WAS TIME…
The perfect afternoon snack.
English muffin with coconut oil and dandy tea.
Dinner was scallops, mixed lettuce, avocado, cabbage and my fav – parsnip fries!! Drizzled with olive oil.
Lori’s Monday recap:
Post-workout it was fresh juice time. I enjoyed about 16oz worth of juice.
Followed by lots of lettuce with coconut oil and two whole eggs.
My metabolism felt high yesterday as by the time it was ready for my next meal I was ready to EAT. Lunch was something that I could probably have at every lunch it is that good and super easy. Yep — nori wraps.
Also had a side warm salad with zucchini and coconut oil.
My nori wraps were filled with a little lettuce along with an avocado, salmon, sardine mash. I took half avocado mashed it with half can salmon and half can sardines. Spread that over the nori and roll up. Super easy and tasty! I also enjoyed a cup of bone broth with lunch.
Next up was practicing our vegan english muffins again. Thanks for everyone’s patience! Like we mentioned above we made a few different versions of it and this one we feel is the best. Though we did like them all.
We wanted a muffin that had few ingredients, had a soft chew and texture and toasted up nicely. Also, we wanted it to be protein packed too so we used some protein powder as some of our ‘flour’.
Time to make the easiest and healthiest english muffin.
English Muffin Second variation: for those that like a little coconut flour
- 3 tablespoons perfect fit protein powder
- 1 1/2 tablespoons arrowroot starch
- 1/2 tablespoons coconut flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 2 1/2 tablespoons water
- 1/2 tbsp coconut oil, liquid
Substitutions and thoughts about recipe:
- We have not experimented with other protein powders or starches. We added in the arrowroot starch because we felt it would do a great job in providing great texture and a soft chew, which we felt it did.
- The apple cider vinegar helps LIFT the muffin more without adding in more soda, as we did not want too strong of baking soda flavor.
- Could try tapioca starch to replace arrowroot.
- Could try other protein powders instead of perfect fit .
- * Now for the water, we have done it with just 2 tablespoons water and the muffin came out. The batter was more thick before baking. Also, if you change up the protein powder and starch please add in water SLOWLY, as you may need less or more depending on the ‘flours’ used.
Toasted my english muffins and topped with coconut oil.
Soft and chewy with a slight crunchy outside.
Tested out hemp seeds. It has been well over 2 months since either one of us has enjoyed hemp seeds. This was the next thing we wanted to test out to see how our bodies react.
Dinner was lettuce topped with grass-fed ground beef, a little olive oil, parsnip fries and brussel sprouts. I did remember to take my pre-dinner meals. Though for some reason this dinner really filled me up, as I got a little bloated and felt this heavy ‘fullness’ feeling. No gas pain, just felt really full.
Enjoyed some marshmallows and took probiotic before bead.
Did you have a great day yesterday? Who else loves english muffins? What do you like to top your muffins or bread with?
till next time,
