Then I made some of my almost raw protein cookies. Ry and I are really loving these right now! They really speak for themselves:) This time I used Medjool dates so we will see if I notice the difference.
Last but definitely not least, I tried making some kale chips. I used Averie's recipe for 1 bunch of kale. It tasted so good right out of the blender..I could barely wait. I don't have a dehydrator so I had to use my oven which is gas. I opted to turn it on to 200 and leave the door open. Let's just say my kitchen was a boilin' lol!
Don't you just love that color...WOW!
And there is the final product! These seriously are addicting. I love the flavor and texture of them. A real winner! I think my oven may be a bit too hot so I had a lot of little pieces that stuck to my parchment paper. But I can not wait to try making some more of these. Now I know what everyone is raving about:)
I'm also going to be bringing a lot of leftovers as I had to cook up a lot of veggies that would have gone bad before I could have reached a kitchen! Trail mix is also coming along as well as some raw cut up veggies. I'm hoping that I will keep with these and eat less of the other sugary stuff, but like I said, I love to nibble on stuff on the road:)
And I can't not let Nemo have a treat so I picked up these treatsies from the co-op and he loves them so hopefully it will keep him quiet in the car:)
So, I better run as I still have a million things to do including preparing a dish for a potluck..eek!
I hope you like my little menu for the road and whatever you are doing this weekend, have a good one!
I'm not sure how often I'll be posting this next week as we have a pretty busy schedule , but I'll try to update you when I have a spare minute. Maybe a 2AM post will be in order..lol!
