Look what happened now...
Are you afraid of the "Raw" foods out there?
I know I thought I needed a safety net and a whole lot of crazy ingredients before I started "Fake Baking" raw goodies. But honestly you don't, just purchase a few key ingredients and your set. The food is usually very tasty and ready in less than 1/2 of the time!
I worked yesterday and in between phone calls I tried a new recipe for Chocolate Raw Bars.
Behold them in their uncooked goodness..
From there it went into the refrigerator for 20-25 minutes to firm up some and then I cut it into squares. Easy-peasy and OMG was it good!
So see? There is no excuse not to try at least some of the easier raw recipes out there. Especially with it being so warm in the US now. Who wants to stand over a stove or have the oven on when it's baking outside? Not me!
Catch you later-
I hope yours is going well. It's warm here as summer shifts into high gear.
Between work (which is good, thankfully,) and the heat I haven't really been doing much.
Nothing exciting is happening, but you know I'm grateful for that, too.
A few of you have written me about posting more often and asked for an update or if I was okay. How kind of you! What can I say? I'm just lazy, lol but thanks for asking, everything is good, actually really, really good.
So to prove I am still alive here is a random summer day for me...
I get up early and it's already hot. But it really is a much better 'heat' than Texas. Although it would be better to be in the south of France right now, but somehow we make do, lol.
I love getting up early - most of the world is asleep and everything is quiet and peaceful.
During this time I meditate, do yoga or Tai Chi and then go for a walk. It's too warm to run, unless I see a snake...then I run. #TrueStory
I also take care of my modest garden in the morning before it gets mega warm. I find by keeping my phone turned off I get so much more done in the morning because you know one quick email equals an hour later and I might as well check Facebook.... lol and the morning is over.
So that is my big secret for working so much and still staying sane - Stay off your phone until right before you go to work and take time to do the things you love.
For me that means working with the plants, spending time outside and meditating. Plus not rushing around like a mad woman. I would rather get up earlier and have more time, then race out the door feeling frantic.
But that's just me, some people love that panicked feeling and use it as motivation. For me it just ruins my entire day.
After I have an hour or so outside I return home feeling centered and ready start the day.
I seem to spend way too much time in meetings, both in person or via Skype. By the time I stop for a break it's really, really warm outside. But, yeah- I still usually have hot tea during the day, lol.
Well, I do cook a bit. And then I convince myself its time to blog....but I just watch Kodi instead, lol
