Hi! How are you? As you can see, I switched over to my own domain and the blog design is completely different from what it used to be. Fit for the Soul had a makeover yo!
The design and the site itself still need improvement, but I'm getting there while having fun at it!
I think through this process I learned a lot about technology.
I believe that this has only
confirmed magnified the fact that I am terrible with computers! I'm sure you can't be worse than me even if you think you are. :P
I had a great weekend starting with some of Jessica's whole wheat cherry vanilla pancakes. And congratulations to me! This time, I barely changed anything in the recipe--I only halved the recipe for me and my sis. :)
I topped mine with PB&CO's Dark Chocolate Dreams and cherries.
I briefly shared the other day that a 13 year old rapper was comin' to town.
He rapped for the kids where Greg and I volunteer and obviously raised the roof! He was on fiyyyyaaa!!
Here's some proof that 4th and 5th grade girls can have frighteningly raging hormones, and here we thought it was only the male species that raged like that.
Oh the horror of being loved...
I'm so glad the kids enjoyed this little treat. This young man was so mature and inspiring.
I have no doubt that the kids' perspectives of life changed just a tad bit. Hopefully, they know that they don't have to lose hope in life, and that they're precious in God's eyes just the way they are.
Then come Saturday, Greg and I went on a date to make up for the busyness we've had these days. We went to this place by the ocean where they serve appetizers on the rooftop. It's literally the roof of a cute little hotel.
It was awesome to just spend time together without doing homework for once. We just enjoyed the view of God's beautiful creation while watching people have fun.
I think that being in the presence of a loved one (or the love of your life) and being comfortable in silence is such a powerful factor in a relationship. Any feedback from all you married people? Do you agree with that or not?
Now fast forward to today, I want to share an amazing breakfast combo with you!
This is a bowl of Carob Oats. Holy Moly! Words cannot describe how good this was.
You may already know that I'm always about making my breakfasts wholesome and nutritious. Well most of the time.
Carob comes from a tree that produces Carob pods. The looks and the taste of it is deemed to be somewhat similar to chocolate.
I agree that they both look similar, but the flavor is more like a cross between mild chocolate and berries. Kind of hard to describe actually.
It is packed with nutrients including antioxidants. Sources claim that it improves digestion, lowers cholesterol, and even prevents diarrhea in children.
Pretty awesome if you ask me! ;)
These are the bowl ingredients:
- Whole Foods almond milk <-- amazing flavor and creaminess!
- sea salt
- Bob's Red Mill Carob Powder <-- I think the link shows the ginormous bag though
- topped with WF's cashew butter, preserves, and Erin Baker's granola
I dare you to try this mix. :D
I hope you've been well and I shall talk to you soon.
p.s: Is the blog page showing alright for you? Oh, and do you still get the email notifications? I'm still such a noob when it comes to this.
What has inspired you this weekend?
Have you tried Carob? If so, how do you like it?
