Sunday~2/6/11~Day 9~Dessert & Eye Pillows....
Weigh in day.....I released another 2#!!!
Weight is now at 165.5#.....starting weight was 177#....woohoo = 11.5# GONE!!!!
So, for the "dessert" part first!!
This is a combo of 2 recipes on this site....
RP Brownies (Raw priestess)
For the top & bottom layer.....
1 cup walnuts
1 cup dates
1/4 cup cacao powder
Put in food processor until small chunks
Then it's the "caramel" layer from ca raw mellas
¼ cup maca powder
1/8 cup mesquite powder
1/8 cup lucuma
1 cup agave or honey
2 heaping T. Almond butter
1 tsp. Vanilla
Pinch Celtic sea salt
Put in bowl & mix.....I used all agave, because most of my honey is crystalized....I also used cashew butter, because I don't have almond butter.....
Make the first layer of brownies - press into pan/dish, then make the caramel layer....put is freezer to let it set up....1hr....then make other layer of brownies & press on top of caramel.....I didn't let mine set up enough & the caramel layer was very gooey....I put them back in the freezer & will keep them there.....
It was super sweet & tasted strongly of maca....I like maca, so I don't mind....gave me a little energy too!
Then, when I had some energy....I decided to work on a project that I have been putting off....for months....lol
Making Eye Pillows for my yoga members to purchase.....
These are just the slip covers...I still need to make the "inside" part with the bag filled with flaxseeds.....
They are 2 different materials - one side is silky, the other has a flannel material - so I showed each side in the pic....
Wow....I never knew sewing could be so traumatizing.....lol
Now, I REALLY need to make some food....I've only had that piece of brownie treat on the plate above....that was a million hours ago....I'm starving!!!!!!
I am going to make some rich cheddar dip (on this site called "da bomb", or something like that)....then I will cut up some veggies to eat it with.....
Hope everyone had a great weekend!!!
