Happy Wednesday, friends! How’s everyone doing this week? Are you all reading anything interesting? I totally went off my reading schedule to fit a new ARC in. I’ll be sharing that today and also a new recipe from the Thyroid Healing book by Anthony Williams that I talked about a few weeks ago. I hope you enjoy!
I was a little late this morning and needed a quick breakfast. I’ve been thinking about this recipe since I first saw it and thought I’d give it a try. There’s no cooking involved and this was super fast!
- 3 apples
- 2 dates
- Juice of half a lemon
- 1/2 tsp vanilla (I used extract)
- 1 tsp raw honey
- 1/4 cup raisins
- 2 TB walnuts
- 2 TB shredded coconut
Add your apples, cinnamon, lemon juice, vanilla, dates, and honey to a processor. Blend it until just mixed.
Put your apple mixture in a bowl and sprinkle with walnuts, raisins, and shredded coconut. Serve and enjoy! It’s that simple.
This turned out to be quite good, my only issue was that it was cold. I like hot things in the morning so maybe this could be heated up a bit?
I enjoyed this with Pukka star anise and cinnamon tea this morning.
Star anise tea is one of the recommendations in the Thyroid Healing book. It’s really delicious too and paired well with the apple porridge.
-This Week’s Book-
In the tradition of The Dinner and We Need to Talk About Kevin comes a “bad seed” debut about a mom desperate to find help for her mute young daughter, whose disturbing behavior grows increasingly dangerous.
She’s the sweet-but-silent angel in the adoring eyes of her Daddy. He’s the only person who understands her, and all Hanna wants is to live happily ever after with him. But Mommy stands in her way, and she’ll try any trick she can think of to get rid of her. Ideally for good.
She loves her daughter, really, but after years of expulsions and strained home schooling, her precarious health and sanity are weakening day by day. As Hanna’s tricks become increasingly sophisticated, and Suzette’s husband remains blind to the failing family dynamics, Suzette starts to fear that there’s something seriously wrong, and that maybe home isn’t the best place for their baby girl after all.
From blazing new talent Zoje Stage, Baby Teeth is a story about a perfect-looking family, and a darling little girl who wants nothing more than to kill her mother.
