yesterday, I started my morning off right with one of my favorite breakfast additions – Twin Cakes Cashew Coconut Biscotti
followed by a quick 4 minute workout (I am doing pretty good this new year with keeping up with my workouts, even if the workouts are short ones)
then made some pulp crackers
since I have been enjoying some wonderful fresh juice everyday with my mom while home in FL, I wanted to show what I did with all the pulp.
my juice was 1 medium beet, 4 celery stalks, 1 cucumber, 3 small gala apples, and about 6 large carrots
I decided to use my juice pulp to make crackers.
so my cracker pulp was a mix of sweet and savory, but a little more on the sweet side. perfect
for the pulp crackers I took pretty much all the pulp (about 2 cups) grabbed some flax meal (around 1/2 cup) and sprinkled in some spices. I did not measure but did a little chili powder, cumin, parsley, ya I think that was it. and the poured water till it combined maybe a cup or a little under.
my mom does not have a dehydrator so I baked them in oven at 375. it went about 30 minutes and was not really getting crispy, so went a little longer. my pulp crackers turned out to be more like a soft bread. shared them with the family and everyone surprisingly enjoyed them! yay for a random fast top of the head throw things together recipe
yesterday was a sad day for me. sad because I had to say goodbye to my family as my holiday vacation has come to an end.
then my sis, Jen, and I packed up our things and piled into this beauty
we are working these next few days at the Disney Marathon Expo for her company, Raw Threads. if you are new to our blog, our sister has her own athletic wear company all made from bamboo and fashionable too! so you look and feel good when working out.
anyways we just love it, you see us wearing her stuff a lot
but the main reason for my post today (sorry for my rambling) was her cooler!! I am not sure why I have not blogged about it before, but it is amazing. we have used it many times for past races. it is a cooler where you do not need ice. just plug in it. this cooler works in cars as well as hotel rooms. so perfect for people like us who travel with a lot of food. and we have traveled a lot.
keeping up with our trend of reusing kombucha cans to use for traveling green smoothies. we do this so when we are done, we just recycle the bottles instead of worrying about mason jars.
our cooler was full of green smoothies (in old kombucha bottles), Twin Cakes dough balls and truffles, coconut curry, sauerkraut, gluten free chocolate chip cookies, gluten free scones and kombucha. a little food to help our time here at Disney at little easier. as you all know we have to be careful with the food we eat, as we do not want to spend our time curled up in bed or in the bathroom. we are pretty used to it now, traveling with food.
when we get to drive to an event it makes it a lot easier to bring more food options that way we do not have to worry much about getting food else where. so makes everyone’s lives easier.
hello from Disney!
Twins Question: Have you heard of this type of cooler before? One that needs no ice, just plugs in? Do you prefer traveling by car or plane? Do you bring food when you travel? Do you hate when you have to travel with someone who requires so much “planning” out food? I know there are people out there that probably think we are high maintenance (or weird) or something because we travel with our own food. but to be honest it does make life easier in the long run.
till next time,
