That’s how I’m feeling.
And that’s OK.
“Cake” helps. Even though the term “Cake” is used very loosely here.
The last few days have been intense…. stomach bug, sick child, being only physically able to move between bed, bathroom and couch. Top that with trying to organise our trip to Sydney for our wedding in ONE WEEK… and now you realise why I’m feeling a tad overwhelmed?
I admit I did revert to dealing with things ‘like a 5 year old,’ (Viper’s description) – running to my bedroom to cry. Misty promptly started copying me, and I must say his impression of me (hands over eyes, stamping feet and “sobbing”) was pretty darn hilarious (and accurate).
I am totally looking forward to some yoga tomorrow. Just breathe.
These actually look a lot yummier than they are, sadly.
I’m just happy to be able to EAT again…. and while on a candida cleanse…. I’ll take “cake” of any description. I’ve made this recipe twice; I baked it into a loaf as well which was pretty good spread with almond butter.
This cleanse definitely makes me appreciate how GOOD real baked treats are.
Anyway, this recipe isn’t terrible, and if you’re on a restrictive diet at the moment, you might want to try it? If not, then I would go bake some sort of delicious, sweet, fruity cake dripping with agave and cashew cream and then tell me ALL ABOUT IT.
- 1C buckwheat kernels ground to flour in the food processor
- 1 + 1/4C coconut milk
- 1/4C ground flax seed
- 2T coconut flour
- 1t apple cider vinegar
- 1/4t sea salt
- 20 drops vanilla stevia liquid (or to taste)
- 1/8t baking soda
- Mix all ingredients together…. spoon into silicone cupcake moulds or into a small, lined loaf tin.
- Cupcakes = bake 30 minutes at 170 degrees C Loaf = bake 40 minutes at the same temperature.
The “frosting” was basically 1 avocado, 1/8t sea salt, 2t carob powder, 10 drops of vanilla stevia, 1t lucuma powder and enough almond milk to get it to the right consistency.
Misty, being the crazy kid he is, decided he LOVED this loaf crumbled in a bowl, with almond milk and eaten with a tiny spoon. He ate about 1/2 the loaf this way. Plus he decided my sewing basket is a really cool car. Go figure.
