Grain-Free, Lemon, Lavendar, and Chamomile Scones

5

These grain-free scones  are moist and delicious, unlike traditional scones. They are perfect for an afternoon snack with a cup of tea. I don’t know about you, but I cannot eat grains every day or for every meal. Grains contain lechtins which are essentially the plant’s way of protecting itself from being over consumed. If eaten in high quantities, they make the stomach feel bloated and uncomfortable and can cause weigh gain. Lechtins are sometimes referred to as anti-nutrients, as studies have found that lectins can reduce the body’s ability to absorb nutrients. For that reason, I like to mix up my dishes between grain-free and grain-full. I use almond flour here, which is lechtin-free.

Good morning, beautiful people!!

Not everyone is meant to be the same size, weight or BMI for their “category”. We are all incredibly unique with different needs. I was not feeling comfortable in my COVID 7, so I set a goal of losing it and I achieved that goal and more, by eating healthy food like this, every day and every meal. No skipping meals, no cutting out of any food groups or types. By eating healthy, whole, foods you can attain your goals! 💪💥

This morning oatmeal has:

1/4 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 banana (melted into the oats)
2 tsp coconut brown sugar (low glycemic)
1 Tbsp. half & half
1/2 cup water
2 Tbsp. chopped walnuts
1/4 apple chopped
1 strawberry

Edible Flower Spring Rolls

4.8 6 votes

SpringRollForBlog


Using Edible Flowers 
in your party desserts, drinks, salads and even main dishes adds a unique element to your celebration. They add color, elegance, a bit of whimsy, and also have an interesting range of tastes.

Search for what is in season in your area – your local farmers’ market is a great source for finding out what is available and they’ll often have much more variety than the grocery store. Always ask vendors how their flowers are grown (you don’t want to eat flowers that have been sprayed with pesticides!). You can also order edible flowers (fresh or crystallized, which are great for using atop desserts) from several sites online (Gourmet Sweet Botanicals, Marx Foods, Food Innovations).

An Attitude of Gratitude


Gratitude

Gratitude is good for your mental health. 

Gratitude is a thankful appreciation for what a person receives, whether tangible or intangible. With gratitude or thankfulness, people acknowledge the goodness in their lives. In the process, they usually recognize that the source of that goodness lies at least partially outside themselves. As a result, being thankful also helps people connect to something larger than themselves— whether to other people, nature or a higher power.
