    Well I guess that is one benefit of having to go gluten free, the flours are more expensive so I don't bake cookies much anymore. I will probably make a few dozen around the holidays. Boy I agree Kathleen, I really need to move more. I don't eat much junk, but I do probably eat portions that are too big and I don't get enough exercise.

    Taboo Tuesday - this week, on a positive note - add an extra helping of veggies to your daily diet along with that water and exercise.

    More veggies is a good thing. I go to a nutrition class that my Endocrinologist wants me to go to and the Nutritionist stresses eating veggies. She wants us to eat 2 cups of cooked veggies for lunch every day. That's 2 cups of cooked veggies, not 2 cups of veggies, cooked. I am not so good at getting that in. Though I do have about a cup of veggies in my eggs every morning.

    Lucky me, I love veggies, just don't get to cook that much anymore being on shifts. I try to cook large quantities when I'm off so DH & DD have things to eat while I'm at work, plus I have stuff to take to eat. I'll be going to buy broccoli, brussel sprouts and cauliflower soon, from the Amish. I usually take my Mom and we fill the car. Then come home and blanch and freeze it all. I can eat broccoli till it comes out my ears. The cauliflower I cook and put in the food processor with herbs, butter, garlic & cheese. I make "fake" potatoes. Love it that way.
    The trouble with Trouble is.....It usually starts out like fun!!

    I see you all talking about baking and being gluten free. I am including a reciepe I found on FB, at you can put just about anything in it you like. I copies the reciepe then copied some of the comments that was posted about it for my reference. I haven't tried them yet because I don't have all the ingredients but it looks very good.

    The most awesome breakfast cookie ever - and no flour, no sugar, no dairy.

    1.5 cups of oats,
    2-3 super ripened bananas
    ,1 cup of unsweetened applesauce,
    Add walnuts, pecans, splash of almond,
    a handful of craisins,
    and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
    Just throw everything together, mix it up pretty well, throw it on a baking sheet at 350 for about 35 minutes and then go to town! Great and


    I added 1/4 cup flax seeds, 1 Tbls brown sugar, and added 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts, and 1/2 cup of almond butter. They are very good!

    For those who have asked, we use old fashioned, thick cut oats. Yes, they are drop cookies and yes, bake for 35 minutes. I don't think they are like granola, but not like other oatmeal cookies either. We have also added 1/2 cup peanut butter and mini dark chocolate chips, and we have also made them using raisins instead of craisins and adding chopped walnuts

    You can use regular oats or quick..you can also add raisins craisins cranberries, whatever you want..I do one with 2 cups of oats and 8 ounces of applesauce or anything pureed as long as it's 8 ounces and skip the bananas and it makes healthy pet cookies too

    oh, so yummy! I make these OFTEN.. almost every week. these make a great breakfast on the go! my recipe is a bit different: 2 cups quick oatmeal, and 1/2 c applesauce, and add 1/4 c milk. but the rest of the recipe is same as yours. AND I always add some chopped nuts (for some protein) and many times i add a few mini chocolate chips - for my chocolate fix! : )
