I’ve never really liked cinnamon. In chocolate brownies I find their taste overpowering (and it takes away from the chocolatey goodness!) In oatmeal, I’ve always been ambivalent, and I find things like cinnamon buns too dry and cloying for my taste…
So, though cinnamon covered apples kept popping up in various food blogs that I follow, I’ve never thought to emulate it. Until a few days ago, that is.
Oh my goodness! What was I waiting for?
The cinnamon enhances the apple’s flavor, adding a spicy sweet tang. I devoured a gala apple (unfortunately quite mealy) with heaps of cinnamon on top and I’m pleased to say the cinnamon salvaged the otherwise inedible apple. After the first, I wanted more, so I picked a fuji (good choice! crisp, tasty) and I poured my mom’s mixture of Maca, buckwheat granola, and Mesquite powder over the apples and added a drizzle of tahini. It was perfection.
Lately I’ve started to come up with a large “menu” for myself on Word. It has healthy snack, lunch, breakfast and dinner options to remind me of all the tasty, healthy things I love to eat. It makes it so much easier for me to pick what I’m going to eat (sometimes I forget haha) and is especially useful when I’m in a rush. It’s very basic now but I hope to transfer many of those “recipes” online. Stay tuned.
