I think that one of the hardest things to get over right now is the fact that I usually spend about 4 hours in the kitchen each day preparing all of our meals from scratch. At the moment, and for the last 7 months that has not happened. I am finding myself getting tired of the same things to eat each week. My brother and sister in law used to say that their dinners were on a rotation with specific things on specific nights. Well, they would be pleased to know that we are hitting a rotation menu. Although, not by choice, and honestly, in our house we are all getting a bit bored.
This morning I almost didn’t even eat because I just did not want scrambled eggs… again! ( I know… you’ve heard this before right? Just a few days ago?)
So, out came the cookbook and creativity followed. Almond flour Cheddar and herb muffins. The kids and I really enjoyed them and honestly, they weren’t difficult to make.
What I did next however, made them look at me like I had 10 eyes. In fact, my son exclaimed, “What, are you done with coffee now too? Didn’t you have any? You just made a whole pot! What are you doing with all of those things. That looks disgusting, and if I did that you’d tell me I was going to throw up.” (Point made, point taken, now go get your school work done!)
I have been reading so much about Turmeric and it’s health benefits, along with it’s ability to help with inflammation and killing parasites etc. My husband just sent me another article from the Wall Street Journal discussing Turmeric and colds. Since I’ve been congested the last few days and have been feeling punk, I decided to come up with my own “tea” concoction. It’s surprisingly good and amazingly healthy. (By the way, I’ve been doing this for a few days now, I guess the child just hadn’t seen me actually make it.) 🙂
What’s That? (per mug)
1 TBS Coconut Milk/Cream
1/8 tsp. Turmeric
1/8 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 – 1 tsp. Fresh grated Ginger
1 TBS Raw Honey (or a 1/4 dropper of Liquid Vanilla Stevia)
Put all of the above in a mug, preferably in the order listed, stir and drink hot.
