It’s Sunday. What does that mean? Baking adventure! I cooked so much today. I felt compelled in my soul to just whip one thing up and then the next and then the next! We had these protein bagels, then for a snack protein banana sorbet, and for lunch there was hearty vegetable soup with lentil penne. So much goodness.
In the afternoon I did a sweaty asana practice of “Core x20” by Yoga_Girl on her OneOeight platform, and some Chaturanga practice on Ekhart Yoga platform. After that I gulped down some water and collapsed on our bed in the sun. I feel good. I moved, I cooked nutritious foods, I rested. Today was a good day.
Oh and yesterday was a good day too. We signed our new lease, found an amazing low-key gluten free café in walking distance to our new apartment, had tomato, basil, mozzarella, and balsamic glaze sandwiches on baguettes (gluten free 🥖), and enjoyed quality time with Keith. It was a good weekend. My arms are sore, but it all feels good.
Anyway. Now onto the Bagels. This recipe needs a little work, I think more Parmesan cheese will help the consistency. They came out great, I just know they can be better. There’s room for improvement. If you figure out a good adjustment let me know!

🔺Add dough to a ziplock bag, and pipe into pan.
🔺Sprinkle “everything” topping on bagels.
🔺Bake for 16-18 minutes, turning pan halfway through baking.
