Maybe it’s just me, but around this time every year I feel like I fall into a bit of a slump. The holidays are over, your back to you everyday 9-5; your New Years Resolutions that you were so enthusiastic about seem less exciting, the days seem to be getting colder…
This year I’m really trying to pull myself out of the slump by focusing on all of the little things that make me happy. Sure I don’t have a big holiday or event to look forward to, but I have a lot of little things to look forward to:
Mornings like this:
Hockey! Saturday night can’t come quick enough
Hanging out with friends:
Nights cuddled up in front of the fire:
Comfort food: (Beef stew with collard greens)
And even something as little as: my heart shaped apple bite
It made my day 🙂
It’s about the little things!
Chocolate Coconut Cake with Chocolate Avocado Frosting:
Cake: ¼ cup cacao powder, ¼ cup coconut flour, 1tsp baking powder, 1/8tsp sea salt, 4 eggs, ¼ cup maple syrup, 1 tsp vanilla, ¼ coconut oil melted…mix dry ingredients, mix wet ingredients, add wet to dry and bake, in a preheated oven to 350 degrees, for roughly 20 minutes (until tooth pick comes out clean). Make sure you grease your pan well with coconut oil before baking or the cake will stick.
Frosting: 2 ripe avocados, 1/4 cup raw cacoa powder, 1/4-1/2 cup maple syrup (depending on how sweet you like it, start with 1/4c and add as needed), 1tsp vanilla… blend until creamy. Hope you enjoy 🙂
