Our juice this morning was made with beet, carrot, and apple. I made butternut squash and Sunbutter pancakes. I just use 2 cups cooked butternut squash, 1 cup Organic Sunbutter, and 4 eggs to make the batter and cook on a skillet with coconut oil just like regular pancakes. I added 1/2 a banana and and handful of blueberries to eat kids plate to help fill them up.
Snack at school today!
We finished up the pork soup today for lunch. I follow the motto, "Cook once, eat twice" or maybe even three or four times.
I surprised the kids this afternoon with an early Valentine's Day treat. I made a variation of these 3-Ingredient Energy Bars with 1 cup almonds, 1 cup dates, 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes, 3T of cocoa powder, and 2T coconut oil. I formed the mixture into small balls and pressed them into heart shaped candy molds. All of the kids loved them!
I was able to get one more meal out of the leftover pork roast by making some homemade BBQ sauce to serve with pulled-pork and adding some steamed broccoli. I just made 1/2 batch of the BBQ sauce which was more than enough for dinner tonight. I have tried to save leftover sauce for later use in the past, but it didn't keep well.
We had a warm, delicious treat before bed tonight: baked pears with honey, coconut oil, and cinnamon. I used this recipe as a guide, but I did not peel the pears. The kids also had a glass of coconut milk with their treat.
