Day 3 of #my21daysofgratitude

Day 3

❤ Day 3 of #my21daysofgratitude

To be happy, look for things to appreciate, no matter what is happening around you ~ The Secret.

Every day offers us the opportunity to live our lives to the full, to tune into all the great things that life has to offer in all its amazingness! However, some days present more of a challenge than others, and sometimes it is a little more difficult to see the goodness around us, to see the glass as half full rather than half empty. Well, there is one sure way to make sure that we don't even have to be concerned about this, when we can focus our attention on what we are grateful for, no matter what is going on around us. How many great things do we miss when we are focused on 'what is wrong', imagine all the beauty that is there for us to see, we just have to CHOOSE to focus on it! It has been proven that being grateful for three different things every day for 21 days in a row has the potential to increase your optimism. So what are YOU grateful for today? Really feel your gratitude, write in your Gratitude Journal if you choose, or even just think about these three things in your mind, and allow that to be your focus for just a couple of minutes! It works magic!

Love from me, Marie ❤

POWERFOOD VEGAN BREAD

IMG_0027

I absolutely love bread so I wanted to create a recipe that was full of goodness as well as suiting all types of diet choices! So here is my powerfood product! When baked and cooled, it can be topped with loads of different varieties such as basil, spinach and garlic pesto, or tomato and pinenut sauce, avocado, or maybe a delicious homemade nut butter, yummy!

INGREDIENTS (makes one loaf)

1 cup buckwheat flour

1 cup quinoa flakes (you can use oat flakes if you prefer)

Half cup ground almonds

Half cup flaxseeds (whole or milled)

Half cup sunflower seeds

1 cup pumpkin seeds

2 heaped tbsp chia seeds (whole)

1 tsp bread soda (gluten free)

Half tsp baking powder (gluten free)

2 cups cold water

* 3 tbsp psyllium husk powder (I made mine without this also and it held together well, so if you don’t have it, you can try it without it)

Optional

Pinch of pink himalayan salt

2 tbsp of mixed dried herbs

METHOD

Blend pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds together until milled.

Place buckwheat flour, almond flour and quinoa flakes in a bowl, together with bread soda/baking powder.

Add chia seeds, flaxseeds and milled pumpkin/sunflower seeds into the mix and stir together.

Slowly add the water, stirring all the time. If it gets too moist, just add some extra buckwheat flour to bind.

Put the mix in a greasproof lined baking tin and leave to sit for an hour.

Preheat oven to 350/180 Degrees.Then, pop in the oven and bake for 1 hour, testing with a skewer to make sure its fully cooked.

Remove from tin and cool on wire tray. Then, slice and cover with your favourite topping!

Enjoy!

Until next time,

Love from  me, Marie X
