Part of organizing is meal planning, aka knowing what you are going to eat before each meal instead of the quintessential “What’s for supper?” and be “like, uh…dunno”. Since I’m giving a concerted effort to no gluten-no dairy- low sugar, I had to try this. I have a family with a sweet tooths (or would that be sweet teeth? These are life’s grammatical snafus when you are an English teacher).
Not only do my kids like sweet stuff, we avoid artificial colors and flavors at all cost. Here is where I will give a mention to the Feingold Diet. http://www.feingold.org. Those pretty colors are eye-catching, but poison. Read about what all that artificial crap can to do you and how it wrecks havoc on your behavior. We have seen night and day differences once removing the colors. But maybe I’ll talk about it another day. Hey, it’s my blog and I can write about whatever I want, right? Now back to my regularly scheduled original train of thought.
On a FB page called Raw for Beauty, I found this morning a recipe called Vegan Chocolate Mousse.
I potchked with the ingredients with what I had at home, and this was AMAZING! I used date paste instead of agave nectar (something I have no desire to buy). I used soy milk instead of almond milk. Skipped the vanilla, as I need to restock. My taste buds are singing and my sweet tooth is happy.
Try it! My organizing advice is that if you aren’t going to wash your blender immediately, at least fill it with soapy water and let it soak until later. Otherwise, you’ll be spending more time scrubbing dried on crud than doing more important things in life that you enjoy more, unless you enjoy scrubbing dried crud off your dishes.
