Food, you are amazing.
Not only do you nourish our bodies with the nutrients- vitamins, minerals, fats, carbs, protein, fiber and everything else our cells need to survive, but you also give us a means to be creative, to explore your different physical and functional properties (hello egg coagulation!) and also create a party for our taste buds.
So today I thought I would show you how in the last 24 hours food has given me a creative outlet, nourishment for my craving/needy cells and a whole lotta party for my taste buds!
For Easter we were having a family lunch with my grandparents.. which meant food... which meant I was cooking dessert (I have been permanently assigned dessert duty- mainly because I have permanently baggsed it ;)
An image of an Easter cake flashed through my head and I searched through my large collection of Taste magazines in order to find what I was looking for- this guy!
Chocolate bought, pans lined, oven pre-heating, I got to work!!
The finished product:
'How can you make something like that and not want to eat it?'
'I make things because I love to make them, I love simply creating awesome things!'
I was still feeling a little tired and sore from my long run on Saturday, yesterday, so I knew I needed to fill my body up with lots of nutrient dense foods.
And finally, the food that gave my taste buds a party!
This morning's breakfast:
Creamy green smoothie
nut butter granola
