A habit is a response that our mind has our body do almost on autopilot. Habits typically require less mental capacity than non-habits. This is one factor that makes them so challenging to change. However, there are a few tips that can help initiate new behaviors. First, ensure your motivations are tied to your values. If motivations for change are unclear or tied to a superficial desire, the likelihood of achieving your outcome becomes significantly less. Next, focus on what individual behaviors may result in helping you achieve your goal. Oftentimes, thinking about an overarching goal seems incredibly overwhelming. Thus, narrowing your attention to smaller tasks help provide quick and positive results that encourage repetitive behaviors. Finally, consider what barriers may be preventing you from completing or acting on your new tasks. Removing these obstacles may be the final straw that tips your unachievable desire into a new habit. Tips and Resources That Help You Build Better Habits by Syed Balkhi offers a good synopsis of change with bullet point resources for those looking to learn more.
I am so excited to share this yummy #pumpkin #donut 🍩recipe with you! I took a vegan recipe and altered it to include items I typically bake with in my own home. The result was fantastic!
Why these are so great 👉
🧡 They're very easy to make and can feed a crowd
🧡 They're a great alternative to cinnamon rolls and muffins if you want to mix things up
🧡 The batter is more muffin like and is lower in sugar, which means these are game for packing as snacks for school (gotta help the teachers out 😉)
🧡 They can be topped a variety of ways (cinnamon sugar, glazed, or even with a nut butter for some quick sustenance on the way out the door).
Preheat oven 350 degrees.
Combine wet ingredients
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup oil (any oil except coconut or olive)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Combine the dry ingredients
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin spice
3/4 teaspoon salt
Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients (batter will be thick, do not over mix). Place batter in ziploc or icing bag and fill donut pans (we 🖤 these mini donut pans we found on @amazon 👉https://amzn.to/3jjVQAm).
Bake 12-15 minutes. Cool ten minutes. Add topping of choice. We prefer the cinnamon sugar coating (lightly brush donuts with butter and dip in cinnamon sugar mixture - about 1/4 C sugar + 1 Tbsp cinnamon).
