We didn’t run far from home in case that my knee started to hurt. About 1.28 miles into the run, my knee started to really hurt. Luvy was VERY supportive. What would I do without him??? He told me not to push it- I would only do more damage. I am one that will run through the pain. We walked for about 3 minutes, and my knee started to feel normal again. I tried running on it and made it about a 10th of a mile. Big mistake. My knee was now throbbing. BIG FAIL.
Even though my run was a complete failure, I had great success in the kitchen today! I mastered grits, and I made homemade amaranth tortillas.
For breakfast, I have felt very limited until here recently. Since I have been able to add in corn, I can now have grits. I have always thought of grits as gross. It always looked like gooey mush. Being so limited, I decided to give them a try. I hit the jackpot this morning.
Luv’s Good morning Grits:
- 1/4 cup grits
- 1 cup water
- almond milk
- 1/2 apple
- roasted pecans and almonds
Bring your water to a boil. Reduce heat and slowly stir in grits. Cover and let simmer for 15-20 minutes. Stir in milk of choice (I used about 1/4 cup of almond milk) and add cinnamon (maybe 1/2 tsp?). I never measure!
While your grits are cooking, cut up your apple in small pieces. Add a little bit of cinnamon and cook in microwave for 45 sec-1 min or until cooked through.
Amaranth tortillas- recipe adapted from Bob’s Red Mill
- 1 and 1/4 cups amaranth flour
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup water
- dash of salt
Let them cook for about 2 minutes on each side. I had my skillet set on about 3.
They will start to get slightly brown and look dry.
Keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or freeze. They rewarm well in the oven. Place oven on 200 F and heat for about 2 minutes.
