Here we are again! Another Wednesday and another edition of WIAW!
Thanks again to Jenn for linking us all together!
I didn’t do a whole lot of snacking yesterday except for unpictured watermelon (love that stuff right now), strawberries as I was cutting up a bunch for a strawberry crisp (recipe below) and a spoonful or two of peanut butter since it was National Peanut Butter Cookie day yesterday. That’s my version of a PB cookie by the way.
Lunch: Spinach salad with tomatoes, cukes, red onion and hummus/apple cider vinegar dressing. This dressing has become my favorite way to dress my salads lately. Simple but gives a little zing!
Dinner: Quinoa Pizza Balls with Yogurt Dip. I found this recipe HERE. Maryea has some really great recipes for toddlers to adults. I’ve made a lot of her stuff and have never had anything bad. I adapted a few things to what I had on hand – I cooked the quinoa in vegetable broth and used adzuki beans. I also only had dried spices so I sprinkled some on for taste. My kids even liked it(sort of)! L ate everything but A preferred eating the dip only.
On Sunday we made our first trip to a local farm to pick fresh strawberries. It’s still quite early in the season so the berries weren’t at their best but still very delicious! A and L were very excited to pick the fruit. A little too excited – they started picking everything! We had to direct their attention to carrying the boxes which solved the problem.
approx. 3 cups sliced strawberries (note: I didn’t measure)
1/4 c water
1/8 c pure maple syrup
2 tbsp almond flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 c almond flour
1/4 c raw oats
2 tbsp pure maple syrup
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 8 in. square glass baking dish.
2. For filling, combine fruit and water in large bowl. Add maple syrup, flour and cinnamon; stir till evenly coated. Spoon into baking dish.
3. For topping, combine all ingredients in medium bowl; mix well. Sprinkle evenly over fruit.
4. Bake 30-35 minutes or until topping is slightly browned.
It was really good but the next time I make it I will double the topping ingredients. That’s the best part, right? I had my piece(s) with a dollop of plain Chobani yogurt.
On a side note, I was on a registering spree yesterday.
I also am going to Healthy Living Summit 2012! I’m excited to meet some new bloggers and to learn a lot! I couldn’t pass up the opportunity since it’s back in Boston this year.
