The cake is a brioche type of dough, rolled with a sweet mixture of sugar cinnamon and nuts. It is baked and covered in icing and colored sugar, the colors you find EVERYWHERE in New Orleans at this time of the year: Purple (representing Justice), Green (representing Faith) and Gold (representing Power).
I have been thinking about what recipe to do to celebrate that special day, for a long time… But then I ran really short on time, and when I finally had a chance to sit down and decide on something, it was 9:30pm on Monday night! Thankfully, I found a very easy Panna Cotta recipe, made with 3 ingredients and requiring only 10 min of prep!! perfect!
SO? Well, I’m happy, I fit in my skinnies again! That’s just what I wanted! Plus forcing myself into eating so much veggies really helped me rediscover how good and simple it can be. I am ready to re-introduce more fresh food in my diet. Also ready all together to eat healthier. I did a run to the natural store this week-end and stocked up on healthy snacks, so no reason to cave again!
Not sure if it is actually true, but some say surgeons used to give this diet to patient before heart surgery, because it is supposed to unclog your system from bad fats and all that stuff. Honestly, the whole month of December, all the way until yesterday morning (had my work holiday party last night, and had way too much to drink, so perfect timing to clean up the alcohol too remaining in my system), I have made no concessions!!!
About a month ago, my fellow blogger from Wholelicious nominated me for the inspiring blogger award. As you know I haven’t been writing much, so it took me that long to get it together… Thank you Andrina for thinking of me! If you didn’t nominated me, you would be in my top 15 inspiring blog too!
OK, this is not an edible recipe! But I love to share it, because it makes a great DIY keepsake or craft to do with young kids
