And so it begins 

One of my goals for 2017 was to be more relaxed and react to challenges with a more “balanced” manner. For this I had to start meditating and doing yoga. For the meditating part there is a very cool app I read on an article on http://www.theverge.com; I will share it on a different post.

For the yoga part I started one on one lessons, as I had no idea about Yoga, and wanted to get more personalized ones.

This week was my first week of Yoga and I am completely hooked! If you can I highly recommend you to do it! As it allows you to relax and be on the road to more inner peace

Below are some pics of the outfit and my post workout faces I guess 😳 🙃

First Food Post: Eggless Vanilla CupCakes:p

I have always loved baking as a hobby, ever since I was a little girl. I have specially enjoyed baking for my family. Recently my mother developed food allergies to chicken, eggs, and some more. As she always enjoyed pastries I decided to be “creative” in the kitchen and create baked goods she could enjoy! The result were good! I always wanted to share these recipes. If you can consume eggs all my recipes can be changed for that.

Today’s food post is one of my mother’s favorites “Vanilla Cupcakes”

The recipe is very simple you need:

Wet Ingredients 

1/2 package of butter

3/4 cups of sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

3 egg replacements or eggs*

1 cup of milk (if you use eggs it may be less)

Dry Ingredients

2 cups of AP Flour

2 tsp baking powder

*For the egg replacement you use:

1 tsp of baking powder

1 T of olive oil

1 T of water

Side note: You can replace up to 3 eggs no more.

Preparation

Turn on your oven at 350° Fahrenheit, 170° Celsius. Sift the dry ingredients then set them aside. On a mixer soften the butter until is almost liquid (see image below). Then add the sugar. Mix some more. Add the vanilla extract.  Slowly add the egg replacement you prepared ahead. If you use eggs add one by one. Mix it until unified (see image below) Set your speed to low and slowly mix between adding the dried ingredients and the milk. Once everything has been added and mixed (see image below) place it on any type of mold you would like. Bake for 15 minutes or more.

If you are vegan you can replace the milk with any vegan alternative, a good option I have tried has been coconut milk. Also you can replace the sugar with any alternative you want.
