It’s HERE!

It makes me want to curl up with a cup of tea and a blanket, get all nice and toasty and read all day, but alas… things called school and work (and cleaning off the car in order to go to school and work) must happen.

And schoolwork went slightly by the wayside this weekend as I roasted and toasted all of this…

And now the recipes! Let’s start with the easy ones (healthy food doesn’t have to be complicated 🙂

Honey Roasted Cranberries and Carrots

  • About a dozen medium carrots, peeled and quartered
  • 1.5C fresh cranberries (if you want it sweeter you could use craisins)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic (I know that’s weird, but it’s good I promise)
  • 2 TBSP honey (you can adjust the sweetness by adjusting the honey or adding a little extra sugar
  1. Season
  2. Mix
  3. Roast @400 for ~45min or until the carrots are tender (mix them every once in awhile)

  • 1C Walnuts
  • 1-2TBSP olive oil

  1. Place brocc onto a sheet pan and drizzle with as much or as little olive oil as you’d like
  2. Add seasonings
  3. Roast @350 for 30min
  4. Add walnuts to brocc and mix around
  5. Roast another 15-20min or until brocc is tender and walnuts are toasty… yum

#GF, #DF Buckwheat Waffles (this is a time and time again tested recipe, and I think I’ve finally gotten something GdoubleODgood… and Buckwheat is so good for you!)

  • 2tsp baking powder
  • 1TBSP cinnamon
  • 1/2tsp salt
  • 2 eggs, separate the whites into a glass/metal bowl

(NOTE: I use an ice cream disher to measure out my waffle mixture…it’s ~1.5 scoops for each waffle, but that depends on your maker)

Hope you enjoy all of these as much as I am for breakfasy, lunch and dinner this week 🙂
