Protein Bagels

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!
