A day in the kitchen!
Today was mostly spent in the kitchen - and also walking outside in nature! I was so grateful to spend my day like this, and to really take care of myself with nourishing food and drinks!
I had a great sleep in. And then had a smoothie for brunch! Recipe in the new book.
Next I felt like baking! And this yellow cake mix - gluten free - by Vitacost was perfect!
The process of baking can be so relaxing and therapeutic.
Then I made frosting / icing using 3 ingredients and this recipe is also in the new Earth Diet book: cacao powder, maple syrup and coconut oil.
How divine does this cake look? This is no filter too! Talk about having our cake and eating it too!
And I ate a decent piece! Well a friend had a slice also ;)
I also made Mac n cheese! Also gluten free using brown rice pasta! This recipe is also in the book.
It is change of season here in NY so to kick a sore throat from coming on I made ginger tea. Gets rid of all bacteria.
Dinner I made this black bean pasta with tomatoes, olive oil, salt, pepper, cumin, paprika, garlic and parsley! Felt so healing.
31 days to book launch!
