Things are busy here at YogaByCandace, but we are so excited for all we have going on. Right now you can download a Video Bundle - we have two available: one for beginners and one for intermediate yoga students! And, don't forget the YBC Mantra Boxes are now available for pre-order! Lastly, if you have the YBC App and take a min to review it, send a screenshot of your review to Lauren and we'll send you a little something in thanks.
One of the things I love most about my mom is that she was never one to follow a recipe. If she didn't have a particular ingredient that a recipe called for, she'd sub for something similar, get creative and put her own little twist on it by adding a completely unrelated ingredient or just skip it. There were definitely some duds in the mix but more often than not, she came up with some awesome dishes.
But my favorite foods of hers were the ones that she just created on her own - no recipe book at all. She'd take a bunch of ingredients, whip them together and voila - something delish was sure to be served.
The other day, she blew me away again with another one of her creations. I'd given her Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides and she was like, "Ohh! Let's see what I can do with this!" She's kind of a health nut like me, so she took out the following ingredients and set out to make peppermint chia bites:
1 cup oats
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
3T coconut oil
2T chia seeds
2 drops peppermint essential oil
First, you heat the coconut oil and honey over low heat and stir.
Then, when everything is melted together, removed from heat and add the collagen peptides and allow to cool.
Then, add everything else, form into meatball sized bites with wet hands, and put in the fridge for two hours.
My mom would like you to know she isn't crazy about them. They're not sweet enough for her, but I think they're perfect. If you like sweeter things, add some more honey. :) Let me know how they come out for you down in the comment below!
