REAL, FRUGAL, HEALTHY, and FUN!!!
Wow! So, that’s me in the pic above. It’s been a long, hot day in El Paso. Our air conditioner is not the best. Oh, and in this heat, I rarely bother with makeup. When you get hot and sweaty, makeup just feels gross. So, I must apologize that I did not get all dolled up for this pic, but this is me doing what I do. I throw my hair in a ponytail, and I bake. Or cook. Honestly, I love both. It’s my fun, and it’s my stress-relief.
One of my favorite things about making my own food, is not having to worry about sneaky ingredients I can’t eat. Walking through the grocery store, checking ingredients on packaged food is enough to make anyway crazy. It’s food. It should not have the ingredient composition of a science experiment. And, here I am trying to eat according to my dietary restrictions (allergies, Celiac, and intolerances). It’s a good thing I enjoy cooking and baking.
So, here I was thinking about this goofy way of life that I actually enjoy, for the most part. I was thinking about how weird some people might think I am. Anyway, I started rhyming words, and the next thing I know I have a silly poem that actually says it like it is, in my opinion. The poem is goofy, but I am kind of proud of it, so if you copy it for any reason, please keep it linked to http://www.mireillesjourneytohealth.com
Baking A Cake
Baking a cake is easy you say?
Just a mix, water, eggs, and oil?
You say that, but a piece of that cake,
Would cause my belly great turmoil.
I have to buy cassava flour,
Or banana or coconut,
Without these special ingredients,
I’m really in a rut.
I’ll need something to sweeten it.
Maple syrup? Or should I use honey?
Or dates? Or maybe molasses?
They cost a little less money.
Your frosting comes in a jar, you say?
I’ve seen that, and that’s just great!
Mine’s made with mashed avocado,
It’s delicious! Just you wait!
Sure my cake may take a little longer,
And it can be tedious,
But it tastes great, and is good with my belly,
So, it’s definitely worth the fuss!
