Wednesday Intention + Almond Cinnamon Sugar Crackers

I love going back and reading past posts from a year ago. Funny how last year, the weather channel was warning of of blizzards and the biggest snow storm in 10 years! – which led to a snow day the next day.

And today it’s mild with highs in the upper forties. In fact, I just heard her say “very nice today!” heh

On this mild morning, I woke up and promptly took my macbook upstairs to do a couple 20 minute yoga podcasts.

I also filmed a quick video  about setting an intention for the day. My intention:

(I actually did 2 podcasts last night and then the 2 lighter ones this morning were more gentle yoga podcasts.)

I’m thinking I might switch out yoga for one of my cardio days next week. My schedule gets about 2 x’s its normal business for the next two weeks, so I think the extra om-ing will be good for the ol’ stress levels Smile

Breakfast is on the go today!

I’ve got a couple of clients to train this morning, so a travel friendly breakfast is called for.

I had about a cup of my TJ’s Greek yogurt left, so I added some cottage cheese, pumpkin, cinnamon, chia seeds, and chopped dates to it and took it with me when I left to train a couple clients this morning.

I have a feeling I’ll probably wait to dig into it after I’m done training since I don’t feel the least bit hungry yet (it’s 6:30 as I type this)

That’s not all I have packed up for breakfast…

I also packed up a baggie of some almond flour crackers I made last night to dip:

I made these last night because I’m visiting a certain Gluten Free Friend soon, and wanted bring some goodies.

They’re delicious. Let’s just say she won’t be getting any crackers from this batch Winking smile

Cinnamon Sugar Almond Crackers
Adapted from this recipe

total time: 20 minutes

Makes ~2 dozen 1×1 crackers

1 c. almond flour or almonds
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. sea salt
½ tbsp. cinnamon
Sweetener to taste (I used two packets of stevia)
2 tbsp. melted coconut oil (or butter)
1-2 tbsp. milk

Preheat oven to 350. If using almonds, grind in food processor until they become a flour consistency. Add the baking soda, sea salt, cinnamon, and sweetener and pulse a couple more times. Add the oil and milk and pulse again. Spread onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes. They should be a light golden when they’re done.

  1. I want to enjoy the beautiful weather but still feel accomplished and get school work done!

  2. I made homemade crackers just once- I found they were super hard to roll out as thin as the recipe said!

    And don’t remind me of that storm… ugh! I’m counting my lucky stars we haven’t dealt with that yet- street parking for me would be a nightmare!

  3. Those crackers look delicious – I’ve never tried to make crackers at home.

    • Below are the ingredients in Wendy’s chili.You’ll noicte there is a bunch of fake stuff (although not a ton of carbs).So, making your own Chili would be healthier (and probably tastier) than Wendy’s.However, eating Wendy’s chili will be way better for you than anything else at Wendy’s!So it would be better to eat Wendy’s chili than cheat on something worse Chili Base (water, tomatoes, salt, citric acid, calcium chloride), Ground Beef, Vegetable Mix (onions, celery, green peppers), Chili Beans (beans, water, sugar, corn syrup, salt, natural flavorings, onion powder, calcium chloride), Kidney Beans (kidney beans, water, sugar, corn syrup, salt, natural flavorings, onion powder, calcium chloride, disodium EDTA [preservative]), Chili Seasoning (sugar, salt, modified corn starch, chili pepper, onion powder, spices, dextrose, garlic powder, citric acid, disodium inosinate & guanylate, xanthan gum, autolyzed yeast extract, soybean oil, caramel color, extractives of paprika, malic acid, red 40, natural and artificial flavor, silicon dioxide [anticaking agent]).

  4. Those crackers look fabulous! Glad the yoga is doing you well. I let my mind wander too much during yoga…I never get enough out of it!

  5. I’d love to know how to say “qi” too b/c I play it all the time on words with friends (big points!) haha.

  6. My intention for the day is to complete all my homework and readings, get a good workout in after my 12 pm class, and keep up with my healthy eating plan for the week!

  7. I’m new to your blog but a fellow Midwesterner :) I love the sound of these almond crackers…They will be made in the near future!

  8. I literally just pulled some of your Paleo bars out of the oven!! After they’re gone, I’ll make these.
    So tomorrow.

    • bahaha! As a warning, these go fast too! I just finished half the batch. I wish I could say Shane helped more than he did…

  9. yum! these crackers look great, pinning these
