Well, I gotta go to school today. I have class 9:25-4:10 so it's definitely one of those long days. Last night before I went to bed, I was walking down the steps while brushing my teeth and carrying two mugs. Of course, I tripped and slammed my baby toe on the wall! haha Now I have this blood blister that's taken over my whole baby toenail. I tried to go to bed without noticing my toe, but I kept squirming around. That thing hurts even if it is just a little part of my body. My little sister brought me a gigantic bag of ice, so I just slept with that on my foot. I couldn't help laughing because of how much pain I was in. My sister was like "Jojo, are you laughing? You are so weird." Has that ever happened to you? Where something hurts so badly, but all you can to do is laugh?
Oh Well, I just take the pain out in cycling class tonight at the gym. What a good idea! haha As for some food, of course I have some recipes. I've been making a lot of RAW bars lately, so I have a Pistachio Bar (my favorite) and a Walnut Bar. I just made them up with stuff I had on hand, but they are very good- Perfect for taking somewhere when you're in a hurry. I do realize that they look like those birdfood discs, but I don't care!! haha I usually eat 2 at a time to fill me up. And you can change up the ingredients, but these are just some of the ones I love.
Here's the recipes:
Wacky Walnut Bars
1 cup raw walnuts
3/4 cup dried apricots
1 tbsp water
Directions: Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray or line with cupcake liners. I definitely recommend the cupcake liners because the bars will be easier to get out. Pulse the walnuts in a food processor until finely ground. Add apricots and pulse. Add water, pulse, and scoop into muffin tin. Freeze for 1 hour and then set at room temp to let them warm up. I got 6 out of these because I used a NORMAL muffin tin. haha
Pretty Pistachio Bars
3/4 cup raw pistachios
1/4 cup unsalted peanuts (if you can find raw, use those)
3/4 cup mixed of dried cherries and dried blueberries
1 tbsp water
Directions: Same as above: muffin tin, pulse the nuts, add the dried fruit, then water, and place into muffin tins. Freeze then eat :)
