Day 24 ~ 30 Day Vegan Cleanse

~ Day 24 ~ 

Today was a FUN day!  There was no school (in-service day for teachers) so the girls and I had a lot of fun.  I started the morning by making "Puffins" for the girls.  Ashelyn named them Puffins because they are pancakes made in muffin molds ("P" for pancake and "uffin" for muffin).  All I did was mix up a double batch of pancake mix, added about 1/3 cup organic pureed pumpkin, a sprinkle of cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice and about 1/4 cup non-dairy mini chocolate chips, then I sprinkled pink decorative sugar on top before baking.  I divided this mixture between a mini muffin pan (made 12 mini muffins) and 9 heart shaped cupcake molds.  Baked the mini muffins at 375 for 12 minutes and the heart shaped muffins at 375 for 25 minutes.  They LOVED them!  We also did a craft, watched a movie, read books, played was a fun day - all in our pajamas!
Ashelyn calls them "Puffins" ~ so cute!

My breakfast this morning was savory and REALLY good, not to mention pretty pleasing to the eye.  I made 1/4 cup steel cut oats with 1/2 cup water.  While that was cooking, I sauteed chopped red onion, sweet potato (diced very small) and zucchini (diced small) in evoo with herbs.  I also chopped one kale leaf and added that to the pan for a minute.  When the veggies were cooked, I tossed them into the steel cut oats and mixed it, then topped with a sprinkle of organic mixed herbs.

Breakfast - so bright and colorful first thing in the morning.

Today was a much needed rest day from Insanity.  I did want to do a little something so I ran up and down the stairs ten times.  Sounds kind of odd - but let me tell you by the 8th time up I was panting and my quads were screaming.  Haha!
