Bad and Good
The Bad News
Turns out my little sickness only got worse. My throat is really killing me now and I also have a runny nose, diarrhea and headaches. Ugh…I hate being sick. I stayed home from church today 😦
I wasn’t sick enough to not want to do a little baking though!
The Good News
I finally made a 100% Whole Wheat loaf of bread that tastes good!!
You would not believe how happy I am about this. I have tried probably 5 different 100% Whole Wheat bread recipes, all of them with little or no luck.
What recipe did I use this time?
The one on the back of the King Arthur Whole Wheat Flour!
Why didn’t I think to use that recipe before?!
It came out so beautifully and it tastes AH-MAZING! I don’t think I ever want to go back to store bought! In fact, I’m making it a new goal for 2011. My goal for this year is to…
Only eat homemade 100% Whole Wheat bread, no more store bought!
I asked my mom if she thought that was an achievable goal and she said to just go for it!
I know this is a HUGE undertaking, but I really want to do it and I know I’ll learn a TON along the way!
If my mom’s taught me anything about being sick, it’s that you need to load yourself up on tons of Vitamin C to get better.
So for breakfast I made a Green Monster full of vitamins!
Spinach = Vitamins C and A
Carrots = Vitamin A
Strawberries = Vitamin C
Banana = Vitamin C and B6
Clementine = Vitamin C
And then for lunch I had an old favorite, Spinach And Chickpea Delight. (It’s one of the photos featured in my header!)
It was delicious, as usual! I love this recipe, and guess what?! It had more spinach!! Haha, I think I eat enough spinach that I don’t need to worry about eating it as a salad, I have plenty other ways to enjoy it!
It’s the first official week of the year starting tomorrow and I’ve decided that I want to go the whole week (1/3 – 1/9) eating absolutely sugar-free!
sugar, maple syrup, honey, brown rice syrup, evaporated cane juice, sucanat, brown sugar, molasses, corn syrup etc.
The only sugars I’ll be eating this week appear naturally, like the sugars found in fruit, vegetables, whole grains and milk.
Soo…? Do you want to join me? Go ahead! We can have a little Sugar-Free Week Support Group!
I was going to wait and give those of you who want to do this with me a little heads up, but I figured why wait?! Let’s just start now!
I’d love to know:
Have you ever made homemade bread?
Do you want to join me in eating sugar-free this week?
