Belated Happy Easter, everyone!!! I just posted my first ever vlog on youtube and I just want to say thank you to my girlfriend for helping me with the video. You’re the best!
Unfortunately, I thought it will be enough, but here I am, writing about the same topic I talked about on my vlog. You guys, I can’t help but write! I guess really love to write. I think I can express myself better here, LOL.
Last week was the holy week and I thought it’s time to focus on my emotional health. Social media distracts me, makes me unproductive, and stresses me out. I don’t know, but I think it’s because of this lockdown that social media has been really messy and crowded lately hahaha. Comparisons, wishes, and hate are the vibes that never go away on IG, FB, and Twitter. So… I did a social media detox.
Surprisingly, I didn’t crave any of it. I was actually enjoying my time. I was enjoying all my personal activities that it never occurred to me to open any of my social media accounts.
One of the things I did during the week, something that makes me calm and excited, is baking. Before the holy week, I found a healthy oat bread recipe online and decided I should make it. White, and even whole wheat bread, makes me so bloated. So when I saw that this bread is oatmeal-and-yogurt based, I immediately took a screenshot of the ingredients and directions. I was so happy and thought this would be a perfect substitute for white bread!!!
Don’t be intimidated just cause it’s ‘bread’. It’s probably the easiest recipe I’ve ever baked!
What you’ll need:
4 cups rolled oats
2 cups plain yogurt
1/2 tbsp baking soda
1 tsp salt (optional)
Sesame seeds (optional)
Just mix all the ingredients together, and don’t forget to grease and flour your baking pans. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top and bake them for 35-40 minutes at 350 F.
You’ll have a healthy and freshly baked bread from the oven!
I shared it to my family, and we ate the bread with minestrone and pumpkin soup. It also works well with cream cheese plus any kinds of jam. I’d probably bake this again after the lockdown.
Now, you go and try it!
Happy Healthy Living!
