Although this week I have just one day off, today, I decided I was going to be very productive! Bread, smoothie, pancakes, shopping and so on ❤
I love beautiful sunny days, markets and trying new recipes, so this is what came out of it, enjoy 🙂
For breakfast I had some chocolate and oats pancakes with lots of fruits :
As I made some extra almond milk, I had some almond pulp leftover so I decided to bake some bread.
70gr of almond pulp / 70gr de farinha de amendoa
100gr of flaxseed meal / 100gr de farinha de linhaça
200gr of red teff flour (gluten free, full of goodness) / 200gr de farinha teff ou trigo sarraceno
2 tablespoons of olive oil / 2 colheres de sopa de azeite
salt / sal
1 tablespoon of psyllium husk / 1 colher de sopa de psyllium
2 tablespoons of chia seeds / 2 colheres de sopa de sementes chia
4 or 5 tablespoons of poppy seeds / 4 ou 5 colheres de sopa de sementes de papoila
1 teaspoon of baking powder / 1 colher de cha de fermento
400ml of tepid water (or less 350ml) / 400ml de agua morna ( or a bit less 350ml)
Mix all the ingredients together and bake for 1 hour at 190C. This dough is wet, almost like cake batter, because of the lack of gluten, and therefore doesn’t need to prove.
Misturar tudo bem misturado e cozer durante 1 hora a 190C . Esta massa é quase tipo a massa de bolo, pois nao tem gluten, dai tambem nao precisar de descansar para crescer.
The lunch was my homemade bread with scrambled eggs (with onion, parsley, chili and garlic).
After this I went out to enjoy my day off and went to a market to buy some fruits and veggies, as I decided to start drinking 1 smoothie a day for breakfast! Do you drink smoothies everyday? I am such a late bloomer 😉
And last my 1st homemade smoothie! OMG it’s sooooo good, can’t believe I didn’t try this before 😮
*A handfull of spinach with stalks / 1a mao cheia de espinafres com os toros
* 2 fresh dates / 2 tamaras maduras
*1 frozen banana / 1 banana congelada
5 or 6 black grapes / 5 ou 6 uvas pretas
* 1 teaspoon of desiccated coconut / 1 colher de chà de coco seco
7 or 8 almonds / 7 ou 8 amendoas ( when drinking smoothies you should always mix nuts in, if you are not allergic, or hemp, as the protein in it avoids the blood sugar to rise, from the fruit consumption) ; Deve-se misturar sempre nozes nos smoothies pois evitam que o açucar no sangue suba, devido ao consumo de fruta, devido ao alto teor de proteina, se forem alergicos, sementes de canhamo)
2 strawberries / 2 morangos
1 teaspoon of wheatgrass / 1 colher de chà de erva trigo
Enough almond milk to blend (or water) / Leite de amendoa suficiente para misturar na liquidificadora (ou agua)
