The past few weeks have been somewhat stressful, but also refreshing (is that even possible?). I'm starting to dream about what direction I want to eventually head, career-wise. Even though I am passionate about mental health/families/relationships (guess it's a good thing I'm a Marriage and Family Therapist then), I am equally passionate about holistic nutrition. I'm starting to toy with the idea of going back to school or getting some sort of certification in this area. Dunno...just a thought!
Okay, recipe du jour: Sweet Potato Bread/Crackers. I found this recipe on the RawFoodPassion blog. I lathered these babies up with honey and cinnamon this morning...yum!
Sweet Potato Bread Recipe:
2 sweet potatoes
1 cup of flax seeds
1/4 cup of honey
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 dash of sea salt to taste
Directions: Combine all of the ingredients into a food processor/blender and mix until smooth and well combined. Spread the mixture onto a dehydrator tray and set the temperature at 115 degrees. Leave it in the dehydrator for 15 hours.
Oh, and p.s., today is my husband's birthday!!! And, just for fun, here's a picture of the new lawnmower he got this week. Goodbye professional gardener (who destroyed our vegetable garden) and Hello, Mr. Chin (who's pretty much a professional gardener anyway)!
