Almond Milk Chai Latte Recipe. For years, I had a very routine “breakfast” that I would pick up on my way to work: a double tall soy latte at 110 degrees. (I know, I was one of those coffee-orderers). These days, I’ve swapped my beverage breakfast for a real one, my expensive coffee for tea, and my soy milk for almond milk. Although I now work from home, I still love to get a quick start in the morning. Which is why I’m so excited about this recipe – this latte is SO simple and is made up of ingredients from my spice drawer which makes me wonder how I ever got into the $5-a-day coffee habit to begin with.

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, I have an announcement to make: I finally registered for the Dubai marathon!! I mentioned in many recent posts that I was training for it, but never told you that I wasn't actually registered. The simple reason for that was that I wasn't sure if I could get myself to run it. Two days ago I did a 29k/18miles run in which I had to run progressively faster towards the end, for about the last 40 minutes. I was on the road for three hours. After that run I decided that I can do a marathon, with just a little more training. My thighs are still a little tight and sore, but hey, 29k/18 miles are not exactly a walk in the park, right? So now I am registered, and I am very much looking forward to it. 1 cup whole raw almonds (or 1/2 cup almond butter) 1/4 cup dried figs, chopped 1/4 cup dried coconut flakes + more for coating 4 tablespoons honey or agave syrup 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1 teaspoon water (optional) Yields 15-20.

Notes Eat well and heal! Comments. Strawberry Banana Nut Oatmeal Cookies. Sometimes, I crave dessert for breakfast. I should probably ignore these cravings, knowing that my sweet tooth is immense; but, I’ve found a way to compromise between something kind of outlandish and maybe not so healthy and something that has some great components to it that aren’t terrible for you. How can anyone be mad at that? Last week I made a batch of these Strawberry Banana Nut Oatmeal Cookies before coming out to work the second weekend of Coachella, mostly for the few guys that I work with because I get in “mom mode” like that sometimes. Well, let me tell you, I should have doubled the size of that batch because these things disappeared almost instantly. This was probably my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe to date, and the guys I fed them to (even the picky eaters) agreed! I would recommend that you feed these to anyone that will have them, and that you double the batch because these cookies aren’t very large and they will go fast.
