Paleo Baking and Fascial Stretching
Date #180 – Jan 26, 2014
A: We didn’t go outside ONCE all day Sunday. Thankfully, come about 9pm, we made cookies which sustained us until Monday. Oh gosh, these paleo cookies are good and filling. We doubled the recipe and used one cup almond meal and one cup buckwheat flour and they were so moist and non-crumbly (usually they’re quite crumbly due to only using almond meal). Easily my favourite cookies on the market right now, and incredibly easy to make.
B: The two most memorable things from this date are the cookies and the book on Fascia I finished. The cookies were great because they were Paleo but also because I tried buckwheat flour for the first time (Buckwheat is actually a seed). The flour is gooey and sticky, much more like the texture of All-Purpose Flour.
The book I finished was a short, free eBook called Why Fascia Matters. I already knew Fascia (the connective tissue in our bodies) was important and a major factor in injury and recovery, but I didn’t know HOW important it is. I love learning about stretching and taking care of our bodies.
At one point I saw A get off her chair and start rolling around on the lacrosse ball I got her, that makes all my learning and sharing worthwhile.
