Artypants

I am an art teacher, close to retirement. I want to take control of my health so I can enjoy my latter years to the fullest. I have put myself to the side for way too long.

Favorite Quote:
DIRECTION - NOT INTENTION - DETERMINES DESTINATION.

I can have lots of good intentions, but if I don't take time to actually follow a direction, those intentions will get me nowhere.
Sparkpeople, thank you for helping me develop my DIRECTION!

Hi there. I'm trying to get started on SP again after a disastrous couple of years. There is at least one other member of our local team who is active. Want to give it a go?

Thanks for commenting on my post. I have the flax granola twice a week (it's estrogenic and can mess with your cycle if eaten more often)
Flax granola:
1 cup flax
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
dash cloves
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup water
Soak seed for at least 4 hours (or overnight)
Spread on a baking sheet in a thin layer and bake at 250F for 1 hour turning now and then.
Mix with 1/3 cup each of raisins, dried cranberries, almond slivers

Serve 1 cup granola with milk of choice and 1/2 cup of berries
Have fun with the recipe - add spice sand dried items as you wish. I have added pumpkin spice and cocoa powder before soaking and dried apricots and coconut sometimes.
