HEALTHY GLUTEN FREE CARROT CAKE

1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1-2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 cup coconut flour, sifted
1 tsp. baking powder
1-1 1/2 cups grated carrot
1/2 cups finely chopped pecans or walnuts
Optional: raisins

FROSTING

Cream cheese
Lemon
Maple syrup

DIRECTIONS

BAKING

Choose any frosting you like. I prefer to make it with cream cheese, freshly squeezed lemon and maple syrup. Amounts to taste. You may add pineapple and/or decorate the frosting with walnuts or pecans.

FOOD AS MEDICINE

HE THAT TAKES MEDICINE AND NEGLECTS DIET, WASTES THE TIME OF HIS DOCTOR. – Ancient Chinese Proverb

Summer is a great time to re-assess one’s diet and cultivate new eating habits by adding more fresh, organic vegetables, herbs and fruits to the daily diet.

If you have not yet watched the documentary: FORKS OVER KNIVES, I highly recommend, you do. This film presents evidence for the fact that most degenerative dis-eases can be controlled or even reversed with a plant-based diet. The film is very well done and worthwhile watching.

ONE QUARTER OF WHAT YOU EAT, KEEPS YOU ALIVE. THE OTHER THREE QUARTERS KEEPS YOUR DOCTOR ALIVE. – Egyptian Proverb

FOOD FOR THOUGHT – DIGITAL ID

“All tyrannies rule through fraud and force, but once the fraud is exposed, they must rely exclusively on force.” – George Orwell

How will digital ID programs actually  shape our future?
Listen to Australian Senator Malcom Roberts to find out (1 1/2 minutes). https://www.onenewspage.com/video/20220204/14276923/Australian-Senator-Malcolm-Roberts-speaks-out-Digital.htm
Don’t be fooled that this is only planned for Australia. There is plenty of information available that Canada is following the same game plan.

 May love, peace, health, respect, tolerance and freedom be sprinkled like star dust to all “corners” of this world on this turbulent Valentines Day.

DELICIOUS SUPERFOOD POWER BALLS

This recipe is a treat packed with powerful nutrition, providing energy while satisfying the desire/craving for sweets. It is a delight to watch my grand children devour this true treat. If I want this treat to last for a few days, I have to hide it in the fridge – away from anyone – small and large!

Why is it that the “treats” commonly used to reward children for “good behaviour” etc. are in most cases damaging to the children’s health? I have always been puzzled about this phenomenon while raising my own children.

As always, every time I create this recipe, it turns out a little different. I suggest you use the recipe as a guideline and be creative. Work with what you find at home in your pantry. Many of the ingredients are interchangeable. The consistency of the dough is what is important in order to be able to roll it into balls.

RECIPE – ENERGY BALLS

Ingredients

  • 20g Powder: spirulina, mushroom, kale etc.– any one or any combination
  • 20g Chi seeds
  • 100g Shredded coconut
  • 80g Almonds
  • 80g Walnuts
  • 150g Pitted dates
  • 20g Cacao powder
  • 50g Dried fruit: goji berries, apricots, cranberries etc. – any one or any combination
  • 2 Tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut oil
  • 1 Tbsp Maple syrup
  • Shredded coconut for decoration

Instructions

1. Cut dates in small pieces and soak for about 30 minutes
2. If using dried apricots for example, cut them into smaller pieces as well
3. Process soaked dates, nuts, seeds and dried fruit in food processor until somewhat crumbly
4. Add cacao powder, vanilla, coconut oil and maple syrup
5. Process in food processor until the mixture has a dough like consistency. I may add a bit of honey, extra vanilla etc. to get the right sweetness and consistency
6. Form into small balls
7. Decorate by rolling each one in shredded coconut
8. Keep in fridge in an airtight container

ENJOY!

HOPE

“Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tunes without the words and never stops at all”.  – Emily Dickinson

Hope is an essential element in any form of healing. Dr. Edward Bach said to never take away from anyone the hope for healing. I am hoping, wishing and praying that this year more and more people will re-connect to nature, so that Mother Earth will receive the much needed support for her healing. Everyone of us can make a difference. Let’s shift our focus to things that really matter and what life is truly about.

Green Blessings,
Gudrun

GRATEFUL

GRATEFUL for the bountiful harvest of herbs in the summer.
GRATEFUL for the time during the cold spell to turn herbs into medicine.
GRATEFUL for the knowledge to create medicines from the gifts of nature.
GRATEFUL for enjoying time with my grand daughter who helped in the creation of five different salves.
GRATEFUL for the opportunity to watch her learn valuable life skills through osmosis.
