Me to a colleague this morning, when she was trying to recommend me a book:
– Sounds like a great book, but I’m not really reading at the moment. It’s just no fun.
– Sounds boring.
– YES! IT IS!
In fact, there are few things I’m interested in at all.
There is one exception. That cronometer I mentioned the other day. Has all of my attention. Apparently I’m ridiculously interested in being well fed.
It’s also got me quite creative in the kitchen. Which is kinda fun. Immediate results! All I’ve got patience for.
I’m inventing out of necessity; the goal is to find recipes that help me hit the RDI. It’s easier to make it up yourself than try to find a recipe that meets my specific requirements.
Some of the RDI goals I struggle the most with are iron, vitamin E and protein.
Turns out my protein powder is actually surprisingly high in iron; two birds, one stone! So today, I’m inventing a type of protein scone.
Because that’s the one bread I know what it should look like, 100% for sure. …according to Swedish standards. Which I’ve noted is different from the rest of the world’s.
To the protein powder I’m adding grated carrot and graham flour. I love graham flour, it has a nice nutty taste. For fat I’m using sunflower seeds, because vitamin E! It has lots of it.
A clever person once said to succeed in baking with protein powder, it shouldn’t exceed 30% of the total amount of dry ingredients. This is sound advice.
I’m basing my recipe on a per serving calculation, which is clever because it becomes real easy to adjust the recipe according how much room you have your freezer.
Dear lord I feel so smart.
For one serving:
15 g rice protein powder
15 g graham flour
15 g carrot
10 g sunflower seeds
pinch of baking powder/bicarbonate
water as needed (added bit by but until I get the consistency I like at that precise moment, it tends to differ)
A piece of bread that looks deceptively like a cookie, but texture is decidedly scone-like. Could well have used more carrots though, because mmm, carrots!
Now. If I could develop an interest in photography next, that would all sorts of great because I’m bored with my pictures.
Unrelated note: My domain (lisaanni.com) is going to expire in a few days, because I’m not renewing it. It makes no sense to pay for it when I’m also bored with blogging, approx 27 days out of 30.
So IF you’ve bookmarked lisaanni.com and IF you’re suddenly wondering why it’s not working, that would be why.
