Adventure, Minimalism and Real Food

Blueberry Lemon Bread πŸ‹ 🍞 anyone?
β €
This recipe can be made vegan and is gluten free and grain free! It is delicious and nutritious!
β €
Before I dive into the recipe, this bread was made in a mini loaf pan! If I made a full loaf, I’d eat way too much. I found mine at @thegarageon25, an antique shop for like $2 but you can find them online and most stores now carry them. Once you got one, let’s get baking!
β €
Mix together wet ingredients:
πŸ‹ 2 tbsp lemon juice (about the juice from one lemon)
πŸ₯š 1 flax egg or chicken egg, either work great!
πŸ₯„ 1/2 cup vegan yogurt. I used @foragerproject)
🍁 2 tbsp real maple syrup. My fav is @sawyersmaple
β €
Add dry ingredients:
🍞 1 cup @bobsredmill paleo flour blend or 1/2 cup almond + 1/2 cup coconut flour
πŸ’™ 1/2 cup fresh blueberries (totally could use frozen + could add more if wanted)
πŸ₯„ 1 tsp baking powder
πŸ‹ Zest from half a lemon (roughly 1/2 tbsp)
β €
Bake 40 mins at 350Β°F in a mini loaf pan and tada! Let it cool for about 10 minutes before removing from pan and devouring! #yum πŸ˜‹

Find yourself friends who forage!
β €
Amazing foods live right in front of us. We just have to notice them.
β €
These babies are growing like crazy in a park and very few passerbys enjoy them. Luckily for me, @mjenngordon knew this would be a great way to spend an afternoon together!
β €
Do you forage?

Nothing beats an easy dinner, especially when it is full of fresh and local veggies! πŸ…πŸ₯•
β €
This steak, zucchini, carrots and tomatoes are all tossed in avocado oil, salt, pepper and rosemary. That folks, is it! The bottom row is some yummy beets! They were boiled for 20 mins then skewed!!
β €
The kabobs took about 5 minutes to cook, the carrots 10 and clean up was simple. 🧼
