avacado egg bake

 

I see this healthy breakfast recipe on Pinterest all the time! I love avocado, I love eggs, and I love a simple recipe!

It did not go well! Things started off well. Preheat the oven to 375 and add the egg to the avacado. Boom!

I was concerned when the egg overflowed but I followed the directions and popped those babies into the oven.

The overflowing egg wasn’t pretty like all the Pinterest photos but it cooked nicely.

This was a flop for me. It wasn’t pretty and it tasted gross. I guess I don’t like warm avocado. Let me know what you think of this flavor combo!

Homemade Almond Butter

This project was definitely not my idea and I would never have had the patience to execute the task on my own. My better half made homemade peanut butter that was a hit so his next adventure: homemade almond butter.

I just stood by his side with a camera for an hour. That’s right, it takes about an hour with a small food processor so if you don’t have an hour run, run as fast as you can!

If you do have an hour and the patience you can make some delicious homemade almond butter. It is really simply to make. All you need is:

-raw almonds

-food processor

Pour your almonds into the food processor. There aren’t any preservatives in this recipe so you don’t want to make a ton of almond butter all at once. It will stay fresh in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks but you don’t want to go overboard and have to throw any out.

Start chopping! Almonds are incredibly hard so this is a very loud project. You’ll get a coarse mixture after a few minutes. Keep chopping. Eventually the mixture starts to get moist and builds walls up the sides of the container.

When this occurs shut off the food processor and push down the sides. Repeat for about 20-30 minutes. We had to take 5 minute breaks a couple of times to let the food processor cool down.

The mixture will start to get really creamy and then you are done! I read some recipes online that suggested adding canola oil. However we did not, there wasn’t much point to make homemade almond butter and then add oil.

It looks like this when you’re done and tastes wonderful on whole grain toast!

citrus infused water

I pinned this fruited water recipe with the hope to start drinking more water daily. I am a big coffee & Diet Coke drinker and I am not getting the water my body needs daily. Unfortunately I just need some flavor!

What you’ll need:

1 Orange

1 Lemon

2 Limes

1 Cucumber

Mint leaves (about 20 leaves)

4 Mason Jars (24 oz each)

Fruit infused water in a mason jar.


Fruited Water

Chop up the orange, lemon, limes, and cumber. Detach the mint leaves from the plant.blogpost72014 006

Evenly distribute the ingredients into the mason jars.

Then add water!

Store the jars in your refrigerator and drink up. I have been drinking two jars a day for a little over a week and I feel awesome! All this produce can start to add up so I recommend buying everything in bulk, 3 pound or 5 pound bags of citrus are cheaper than buying the pieces individually. Also you will have a gorgeous center piece for your table! Enjoy!
