I'm still here, though I haven't been blogging as much lately. February and March both left something to be desired when it comes to stress and self control, but my mind and kitchen are still very much focused on the Gatherer diet. It came so easy the first month, and I felt quite satisfied, then for some reason I rebelled. The rebellion had nothing to do with the diet, I love the foods I'm allowed, it had everything to do with me.
Anyway, last night I baked these cranberry flax muffins and they're great! I used 1/4 cup of teff flour, for 1/4 cup of the flax meal, as I prefer the way it turns out, I didn't add any vanilla, used ginger instead of nutmeg, used mac nut oil, no orange zest, and agave for sweetener. I mixed most of the pecans into the batter, and put some on top. They aren't very sweet, but are lovely bran muffins, I love the tart cranberries. I had some frozen cranberries from the holidays, and just let them soak a bit longer in the boiling water. So far today they have stopped me from cheating on any of the kid's snacks. (I hid away all the easter candy where nobody thinks about it, that helps
