yeah~~ Yesterday was a day of doubles: double baking and double workout. Lovely~~~
Let's start properly. I woke up at 5am yesterday, not so appropriate for a Sunday. But, as my immune system against early bird symptom has improved a lot, it didn't affect me much. Instead I spent time on blog and articles readings. And by 7am I felt like baking. So, I made my first batch of muffins. (Technically, they're blondies since I used pretty much Veggiegirl's recipe, but I don't like cutting and wanted to be easy to carry, so I made them as muffin). This could be called "Peanut Butter mun-dies" (I'm so not-creative). Here's the adapted recipe for these goodies: (9 mini muffins)
- 1 cup regular yogurt (not fat-free)
- 1/2 cup Peanut & Co. smooth operator
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/4 cup pine nuts
Method? Easy, mix everything and bake for 35 min on 350F.
You guys could imagine the smell while these goodies were baking????? sooooooooooo good!!!I couldn't resist to try one (still warm). They're perfectly moisturized and just sweet enough for my taste! I love it! I'll definitely make them more often!
Then, breakfast came. I had a BIG bowl of black rice porridge with a beaten egg in it, and dried spicy pumpkin. I knew I was going to have a late lunch, so I ate more than usual.Went to the sunday 90 min vinyasa yoga flow, and the new instructor was a celebrity (I don't know him until some students recognized him) Greg Marzullo, apparently he's a famous dancer in DC area. It was a nice class with a couple of "ninja" poses (Greg words) and I was the only Ninja in class! ^_^
After yoga, I went to do groceries and came home for lunch at 2.30pm! I was starving!!! So, I made a salad with sprouts and baby peppers and leftover chili on a package of Shitake noodles.Very satisfying lunch, followed by one Mun-dies!
I spent afternoon cleaning and cooking for Monday's lunch and made my second batch of muffins. These are inspired my Maggie's oat bran mini scone. I said inspired because I changed the ingredients a lot, the only thing remained was the oat bran. ^.~ For these I used (10 mini muffins)
- 1/2 cup oat bran
- 1 cup oats
- 1 cup almond breeze vanilla
- 1/2 cup egg white
- 1/4 cup Peanut & Co. Wonderful Chocolate
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 goji berries
- 1 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
Came home and prepared a nice dinner: baked salmon with onions, sauteed bok choy and 1/2 steamed sweet corns.I enjoyed every bite of it!!! ^_^ A perfect meal MUST end with a perfect dessert: fage + strawberries + wheat berries.Great Sunday, isn't it? I hope you guys enjoyed your Sunday with whoever you're with, and if you're like me (alone), I hope you treated yourself well as I did! ^_^
Question: What's your daily skin-routine? I'm just curious!
