I’m not one to give a shit about how much I weigh, but I DO care about how I feel. And I’m feeling soft. My belly is soft and my attitude is soft. Last night I fell asleep at 8 pm on the couch, woke myself with a start because I thought I could hear E crying, then promptly put myself to bed.
The problem is that I LOVE CAKE! So I needed to come up with a little something that was delicious, ‘naughty’ like and good for me. Now my love of quinoa isn’t a secret, and I thought that there had to be something in that, so I gave it a go.
What I came up with was this delicious brownie-esque slice, with amazing texture.
