Come on Summer

I don’t know about the rest of Canada, but the weather here in Prince George hasn’t been too promising.. Yesterday morning I woke up to blue skies and sunshine. I thought it would have been at least a little warmer outside, but it was still sitting at 0 and didn’t get above 2 degrees all day. I want to be able to go for long walks, runs, wear shorts, sit outside and read and go on picnics. It even snowed last weekend!

Besides complaining about the weather, I’ve been doing a lot of cooking. I also ordered Meghan Telpner’s new book, Undiet. I made the granola recipe found in the book the day I got it. It turned out awesome! I had some last night with some goat’s yogurt. So far this book has been great and very interesting – it’s hard to put it down! I would especially recommend it to anyone that is looking to clean up their diet. Her story about overcoming her diagnosis of Crohn’s is very inspiring and motivating. It shows just how powerful food and a clear mind could be.

Besides that I’ve made Jamaican Jerked Chicken, which turned out good, but I want to perfect the recipe before I post it. I’ve made Gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookies and I’ve also been eating a lot of colourful salads!

If you seen on Instagram, I also baked a cake. It’s a Red Velvet Cake with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing. It was at my boyfriend’s request, and I can tell you that there is nothing healthy about it. However, it turned out great and I happily enjoyed a piece. There is a bakery in Vancouver called Edible Flours that makes the most amazing gluten-free (as well as egg and soy-free) cakes and pastries. They make donuts there that are to die for too!

I enjoy decorating cakes, what can I say? Well that’s it for today. It’s beautiful again outside, so I’m going to take the dogs out for a walk. I definitely miss the 30+ degree weather in Jamaica!
