Carb Cravings

by HEAB on January 8, 2010

What do you crave when you are sick? All I want is bread and nut butter. In fact, the last time I was sick, I think the only thing I ate for 2 days straight was warm pita bread smeared with almond butter. Yesterday, I had bread on the brain, but there was no pita bread to be found. So instead, I munched on the following…


Lunch consisted of a bowl of Hot Chocolate Soup (8 ounces almond milk, 1 TBSP cocoa powder, 1/2 avocado, sweetener of choice blended in the Vita until warm) plus 2 warm tortillas for dippin.

Afternoon snack…


Gina’s raw Bloomin Onion Bread smeared with tahini. Gina, it’s so good. Thanks again!

Next up was dinner. My taste buds were screaming for bread, but I wanted to give my body some protein and vegetables. Hmm, what could I possibly make that was high in protein and contained vegetables, yet tasted like a big plate of carbs? 😉


Green protein pancakes to the rescue! I made my usual recipe but whipped 4 of the egg whites with 1/4 tsp cream of tartar and folded them into the batter after blending in 1/4 cup wheat bran and 2 handfuls of spinach. The recipe made 12 pancakes, and I topped them with some raw almond butter. Very satisfying. Thanks to everyone who recommended adding cream of tartar to my egg whites. They turned out so fluffy. Love the fluff factor!

This is day 3 of no exercise. I’m pretty bummed as I was so excited about all my workouts from Lindsey for the week. However, I know my body needed the rest so that it could get better. I’m starting to feel like my old self again, and I hope to get back to exercising over the weekend. We shall see.

I often get requests to promote various giveaways happening in the blogosphere, and I’m having a hard time keeping up with all of them. So, I created a giveaway page.

Oh, and my apologies to our local weatherman. Sorry I called you a liar yesterday…


Doesn’t look like 1 to 3 inches, but I’ll take it! :)
