Hippie Food.

I’m totally waist deep  in Chemistry homework right now.

Seriously…I hope this first chapter about math is just to scare the hell out of me.

If so…mission accomplished.

No more numbers. 🙂

Obviously, I haven’t had the time to bake 3 layer cakes and cook a four course meal.

I’ve been eating kale chips and cookies at dinner b/c I haven’t had the time to actually cook real vegetables.

Whoa is me. 😉

Let’s talk hippie things.

I totally wanted to be a hippie when I was little. I think it all started with the movie “My Girl.” Vada Sultenfuss was my idea of a hippie…clad in paisley white tops and bell-bottoms.

Obviously, there was a different definition back then.

The word hippie today is used to describe a slew of different groups of people.

I mean, I think I went to school with people who refused to wear shoes.

I don’t know if that is a hippy-ism, or just a form of rebellious expression…or bad hygiene.

Some might refer to today’s hippies as “hipsters,” which to me, are guys who wear skin tight pants and girls with jet black flared eyeliner who attend concerts in the smoldering heat, otherwise known as Coachella, South by Southwest, etc. etc.

But what do hippie’s eat?

Let’s go with vegan things.

I’m just going to throw that out there.

Stuff with a lot of seeds?

It’s pretty much a seed extravaganza…hemp seeds (that’s like super hippie…Bob Marley hippie even), flax seeds, and chia seeds.

I’m just gonna let that triple seed extravaganza blow your mind for a bit.

Then I’m going to tell you that these muffins are chock full of protein.

IMG_2283

Yes, vegans…it is possible to get protein in your diet.

I feel like so many people who are on vegan diets stick strictly to vegetables.

You can’t get all of the nutrients you need from a stalk of celery, people!

Nope, this muffin is where it’s at.

You know it wouldn’t be a party without my beloved coconut butter.

Just slather it on.

I just hippie-fied your food.

    Hi Chelsea , I know this question might get you by surprise, but just wanted to know with all these healthy ingredients. Would it be safe to be consumed by my dog as well as a treat? If it’s possible to answer me I apreciate and I would still eat it all myself

    • Chelsy says:

      Actually Jessica, it’s totally no surprise. I have two dogs that are both on very specific diets so I am always looking for recipes to make that I can eat and they can have too! I think this would definitely be okay for a dog treat. 🙂 Thanks for reading and asking such an awesome question 🙂 Hope your dog enjoys it!

  2. Is the protein powder essential to the recipe? Can I just leave it out or does it need to be replaced with something else?

    • Chelsy says:

      Hi Leah,
      You might try almond flour or just brown rice flour in it’s place if you don’t want to use the protein. 🙂
