Tiny Dancers

little girls
tiny dancers in a line
like birds on a wire

some tentative
others confident
sure footed

unbearably dear
each and every one

Breakfast of Champions

This is not my usual breakfast, but I do eat it sometime during most every day.  It's nice to realize it isn't a nutrition or diet buster to consume basic good food that also happens to be delicious.

You should try it!

Raw Fudge

1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup cocoa (not a mix)
1/4 maple syrup (preferably grade B)
1 teaspoon vanilla

Combine in a blender.  Pour into a loaf pan.  Refrigerate until firm.  Cut and enjoy.

Variations:  Some like to add flaxseed meal, or almond butter, or other ingredients.

Notes:  Coconut oil can be solid at cool room temperature, so melt on low heat, if necessary.  I usually reduce the maple syrup to 3 tablespoons.  And I usually double the recipe.  It doesn't last long at our house.

Also, the fudge can be poured into silicon mini muffin pans.  Freeze and pop out fudge.  Store in freezer or refrigerator.

Coconut oil has many health benefits, so you can enjoy this decadent treat, free of guilt.

 Then God said, "I've given you
      every sort of seed-bearing plant on Earth
   And every kind of fruit-bearing tree,
      given them to you for food.
   To all animals and all birds,
      everything that moves and breathes,
   I give whatever grows out of the ground for food."
      And there it was.
