it’s been a little rough couple days for me. today while shopping for cooking classes, I took a detour to the Easter aisle. I stood there for a while thinking about what candy I might choose to soothe my frustration and ultimately decided I wasn’t hungry, candy didn’t sound good, and I could pick myself back up without treats. For me, I tend to desire less food when I’m upset, eat a little too much when I’m tired and overworked, and just the right amount when everything’s flowing. This banana hazelnut granola was made for just this last instance. The recipe is now up on the blog along with a little info about sugar cravings and ways to know what they’re about- as well as ways to ‘feed’ them a little less. ✌️
Sunday mornings are the best for playing in the kitchen. This creation was a little wild but made a pretty 🎨, most definitely an herbalist’s porridge bowl. 🌱🌼
‘thankfully I brought lots of snacks’ work conference and another run frolic in the forest today, fittingly fueled by ah fudge nuts, apples, and an i-really-planned-ahead-green-smoothie. thanks to lots of mileage lately and a very picky system that makes eating a catered meal some type of nightmare, I did the thing I’m really not great at and was flexible. on days like these, coming over prepared (and stopping for extra after-run snacks) is absolutely necessary.
went and found some mud. and blue skies. and Mary’s Peak behind the clouds.
moody grays and trying to snow (again) on my run today. it’s been weeks or months since I’ve been out to the wetland, and though there’s no other sign of it, the birds make it sound like a change of season is near. 🤞🏻
today’s run was frigid. came back to a big plate of winter tabbouleh salad (warmed up of course) from @andreabemis’s cookbook, Dishing Up the Dirt. also, i keep turning to the section on spring, but we’re still a ways off from all the tender new season things!
