So last weekend I made homemade granola. It was the best! I got the recipe from this site, but tweaked it a titch.
1 cup whole rolled oats
1 cup buckwheat groats
1/3 cup quinoa
2 T chia seeds
3/4 cup raw almonds, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup raw walnuts, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup shredded coconut
2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup golden raisins (or other dried fruit)
1/3 cup raisins
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Mix well. Add maple syrup and coconut oil. Mix well!
Spread onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 60 minutes at 225 degrees.
Let cool completely.
Eat a lot of it.
So then I made homemade almond milk. HOLY SMOKIES this was so easy and delicious! I got the recipe and directions from the Little RedHouse.
I used an old peanut butter jar that I cleaned to put it in.
Then, I ATE THE ALMOND MILK AND GRANOLA TOGETHER. Let me tell you, those bites were little pieces of heaven. LOVED it!
I think the granola probably only lasts a week or less just because it started not tasting as good about a week later. That’s okay though. I doubt yours will last that long.
So so yummy. Clay calls it bird food. But he admitted it was tasty.
In other news, my life has felt quite crazy lately. So many things to do. But you know, somehow I'm still finding time for Revenge, Bachelor, Grey's Anatomy...and more...sadly enough.
We have our doc appt in a couple days. I am at a point where I barely ever have symptoms, but I do sometimes and so I don't know if they are just human feelings that everyone gets, or if it's Lyme. I hate it. I just keep praying that I'll know the truth, if I'm done with treatment, or should keep going. I haven't quite figured it out yet honestly. A couple weeks ago I honestly thought I would tell my doctor I'm done, and have no symptoms. Then I started having achey joints. It's frustrating because lots of people have achey joints. My number one symptom was fatigue and that is gone. I am doing like...a billion things right now that could cause me to be soooo exhausted, and yeah I'm tired, but so much more energized than a year ago, when I was just working and coming and laying on the couch. So anyway, I am hoping that I can figure this out because the main way we decide to be done with treatments is based off of our symptoms. It's hard to know how honest I'm being with myself when I'm so sick of being treated and I want a baby so bad. Clay reminds me though that I am eating so close to perfect, I'm being active, and if I go off my pills and symptoms come back, I can just go back again. He reminds me that neither of us will ever be as bad as he once was. Never again. That is comforting. But it's still worrisome...to let it come back in any form. So, I will continue praying for wisdom and knowledge, staying in tune with my body, and discussing it with the smart doc :)
