Happy Valentine’s Day!
Yesterday I worked 10 hours and I didn’t really get any good shots of any food besides my breakfast and dinner:
Maple Pumpkin Pecan Overnite Oats.
1/2 cup oats
1 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp pumpkin
1/2 tbsp sugar free maple syrup
(Feel free to use regular syrup if you have it, I just had sugar free)
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
pumpkin pie spice
Mix All ingredients together and let sit in the refrigerator overnight
In the morning, add a splash of almond milk (unless you like it pretty thick, then leave it out). It was just a little too thick for me. Top with pecans or whatever toppings you desire.
I also had some blueberries in the car, on the way to work. Yes, I was eating in my car AGAIN!
I was super tired after work but I still managed to get to crossfit!

I am pretty weak, my max 2 rep front squat is only 95#, but I will get stronger!
I’ve been asked a couple of times if it is possible to make the grain free Microwaveable English Muffin with coconut flour instead of almond flour. So I decided I would try it. I found out that coconut flour absorbs the liquid a lot more than almond flour does. I originally got this recipe from Tina, and I’ve been making it for a while now!
Last night I used 2 tbsp of coconut flour and 1 tbsp of almond flour. (The original recipe called for 1/4 cup almond flour). At first it was a very thick consistency so I had to add about 1/4 cup of almond milk to the batter.
I microwaved the muffin for about 2 minutes, Cut in half and toasted it 🙂
Coconut Flour (Gluten Free) English Muffin:
2 tbsp coconut flour
1 tbsp almond flour
1 tbsp melted butter
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup almond milk
I enjoyed mine with egg whites, turkey, laughing cow cinnamon cream cheese, and tomato slices.
It turned out pretty well but I have to say that I like the FLAVOR of the original muffin without coconut flour the best!
I enjoyed half of a dark chocolate and sea salt bar. SO GOOD. The sea salt added a special touch.
Now, On to some more food…
I thought I would do a Recipe Roundup that I saw on Jenn’s Blog a while back.
