While I'm blogging less, it doesn't mean I am cooking or creating less. For the past week or so, I wondered... what am I trying to do on my blog? Is it about food? Asher? Me living a healthier lifestyle? It's really all of the above. I think it is important to eat well and more importantly enjoy good food. Good food does not have to be boring or bland. However, I think a balance of having treats here and there is also realistic not to mention important. Variety and moderation is the key here. Then, I have Asher whom I dearly love and enjoy seeing him grow.
So I think from now on, it's going to be a mixture. This is going to be what my life is about now. I started writing when I was a 4th year undergraduate completing my honours. Then most of you followed my journey in completing my doctorate, being engaged, married and now a family of my own. It makes sense then, that I continue to write about my evolving life and how I continue to grow as a person. ;) Thank you for being so patient with me as I juggle between writing posts, being healthy and loving my family.
As the warmer weather sets in, I'm starting to make use of my ice-cream machine again. This time round, I'm making froyo- which is basically frozen yogurt. Nothing beats having a nice cool ice-cream on a hot day but as I am determine to reach my fitness goals, I wanted to create something healthier and lighter at home.
We can probably just mix the yogurt up with any toppings and freeze it. Using the ice-cream machine though, it just provides a soft serve or a more "ice cream" texture. Not to mention, it is quite alot of fun watching the machine churn and come up with a yummy treat. I made two versions of it, with this being the first one. A simple greek yogurt with almond butter treat. My favourite way to eat it is to top it with blueberries and a sprinkle of lindt dark chocolate. Or in a mug of ice cold coffee.
Froyo- Frozen Greek Yogurt with Almond Butter (Serves 4)
250 ml of greek yogurt
1 tsp of honey
1/4 cup of almond butter
Mix everything up in a bowl. Pour into ice cream machine and churn for 20 minutes. Remove and freeze for 30 minutes. Open up the box and eat without guilt.
food brings people together, regardless of culture and country of origin. imagine this space like a huge dining table-filled with home cooked food, with people sharing, loving and eating. eat and enjoy.
