I hope everyone had a great weekend and are having a great start to the new week.
My weekend was productive I guess. I ran my first "race" on Saturday, just a 5K, but it was fun. Since I have been training for my half marathon, which is this Saturday, I have been more focused on distance than speed, so running fast in the 5K was different for me. It was a small race (65 people or so) and the divisions were 19 and under, 20 to 59, and 60 and over. Well, I didn't win, but I had fun and want to work on my speed more when I am done with the half marathon.
On Sunday I did a 10 mile run with my running group and later took a hike with my sister. I came home and cleaned (a little) watered the newly planted veggies, did crafts with Mackenzie, and just hung out. The weather was beautiful! Unfortunately, it is cloudy again today.
As I usually do on the weekends I broke out the dehydrator to make some goodies. I made Averie's (Love Veggies and Yoga) Blondie macaroons... YUMMY! and simple to make, as most of Averie's recipes are... which I love!
I also made some raw cinnamon raisin bread which turned out really good. Here is my just winging it recipe...
Raw Cinnamon Raisin Bread
1 cup buckwheat groats (soaked overnight)
1 apple (diced)
2 tablespoons cinnamon
dash of salt
1/4 plus 1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup ground flax meal
1/8 cup flax seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup agave (or to taste)
Blend everything except 1/4 cup raisins in a food processor until smooth. Stir in remaining raisins. Spread onto non-stick dehydrator sheet. Score into pieces with a knife. Dehydrate at 105 until it reached the desired dryness for you. I like mine a little soft.
