No Bake Granola Cakes — Healthful Pursuit - StumbleUpon

No Bake Granola Cakes — Healthful Pursuit - StumbleUpon
Big changes are happening over on my workouts page and even bigger changes are happening with my marathon training plans. February has been a challenge for me, I was losing muscle, motivation, and forgetting why I began running in the first place. My passion was slowly exiting. A couple days ago I decided I needed to switch things up, I needed to ask for help. [Something I dislike doing, but need to realize that it's okay to get a hand with things and let people in] I sent a message to Angie, a triathlon coach I’d been chatting with back in August and before I knew it I had a new training plan. First thing I told myself: it’s okay to be nervous and a bit overwhelmed. Change has always been hard for me, but I just need to believe in myself and keep my end goal in sight. Second thing I told myself: holy moly, I’m actually going to do this! Then I had a granola cake.

Oatmeal-Raisin Breakfast Cookies Haven’t you always wanted to eat cookies for breakfast?? These sugar free cookies are filled with wholesome ingredients like bananas, oats, and raisins. See? Moist Chocolate Cake There’s something to be said for a cake that you can whip up at 9 o’clock on a Friday night, after a serious doozy of a week, when you need some baking therapy that requires little to no brain power. By the time this past weekend hit, I think anything requiring technique or poise in the kitchen would have had induced some kind of cerebral short circuiting – I imagine there would have been sparks, probably some twitching and likely even drool. Okay fine, so there might have been drool anyway. Actually, when the cake emerged, there was probably drooling and clapping.

Stacy Stowers - StumbleUpon There’s a very good reason why it’s called the Happy Shake! Though this creamy blend tastes like a delicious dessert, it’s chock-full of spinach, berries and super happy foods, like raw chocolate and maca. The Happy Shake is a meal replacement.

Those right there are by far the daintiest, pretties, and tastiest raw treats I have ever made. And the beauty of it all is that they weren’t even hard. It all started on Friday, when I had dinner with Valerie at LPQ. It is by now a tradition that, every time I see Valerie, she brings me a bag of her extra frozen juice pulp, because she knows that I’ll put it to good use in crackers, breads, and wraps.

A Blast From the Past I’m just finishing up the photos for my next recipe, but since we’re entering into flowery, lovely springtime, I wanted to bring this quick and easy—and too precious for color TV—dessert idea from my archives. I first posted it back in 2007 as I was making my way through a little recipe book I used in high school, and my girls plan to make some this weekend. I expect you to have a freezerful of these delights by 5:00 this evening. Back on the golf course, I used to have a traditional back-to-school party for my friends and me every year. Because I apparently had nothing better to do with my time and focus, I’d have Cranes invitations printed, would dress in my finest floral dress or suit, and welcome 15-30 girls into my parents’ house, where we’d all toast one another with sparkling grape juice and feast on chicken salad with dill and baked brie and things like that.

Wholegrain Honey Bread with Graham Recipe We love bread. I guess looking at my Bread Recipes section, you would have guessed that already. Though I have baked breads (and a lot number of them), I have not ventured into inventing my own recipes.
