Yes, dates as in the fruit – my life is not all that exciting! It’s friday again! So of course, I have some new finds for you.
I think the biggest, truest discovery this week was covered in yesterday’s post on intuitive eating. To tell the truth, I was really hesitant to post it, thinking that I would get some nasty replays – but the blog world has been there for me once again. Thanks, all! Commenters, bloggers, and readers alike 🙂
A good restaurant brunch is really good.
This morning I went to breakfast/brunch at a Chicago chain called Orange with a Peel. They call themselves a ‘contemporary’ brunch restaurant, and have some really cool things on the menu, like chai latte french toast or jelly doughnut pancakes! I went with the tried-and-true choice.
I apologize for the sub-par photos, I was using my phone’s camera.
Make it yourself all natural sweetener.
made only with medjool dates, soaked and processed! I’ve used it to sweeten my coffee and my oats so far, and it’s great! Very light, and doesn’t change the flavor too much. And super cheap, too!
Savory Oats. Why didn’t I do this sooner?
These made a full meal, but were light and so delicious!
Now it’s off to bed before Zumba (!!) tomorrow morning.
Do you like restaurant brunch?
Have you ever made your own sweetener or used date paste? Thoughts?
Savory oats – yes or no?
