Almond butter is my fav. I literally eat almond butter once every day for either breakfast or lunch or snack (!) so making these gluten free almond butter cookies was a no brainer.
We have a little time these days, and quite a few of us are baking up a storm. Sources say we are baking because, as humans, we seek a creative outlet. I must confess, I don’t feel there is any creative angle being filled when I’m baking. Let’s be real. When I’m baking these days it’s because I’ve got a craving, I’m bored, and I’ve got time to kill. That, and the fact that I can’t face the thought of heading to the scary grocery store to buy something store bought.
January brings all things healthy and virtuous to the forefront – so we are doing our part with three hormone balancing smoothies to kick off the new year.
It seems we are programmed to think about a healthy start to the new year – goals and or resolutions are made and promises to eat more greens and add healthy new items to our diets get added to our “to-do” list.
In that vein, as we age we are also fighting our hormones and dealing with the onset of menopause in addition to dealing with our teens fighting their own hormonal battles 🙂
