Blueberry, Almond & Buckwheat Muffins (Gluten Free)
makes about 8, but mine were pretty big
120g (1c.) ground almonds (almond flour)
100g (2/3c.) buckwheat flour
20g (1/4c.) ground flax
1 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
50g (1/3c.) brown sugar
zest of 1 lemon
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp cider vinegar
60ml (1/4c.) melted coconut oil
120ml (1/2c.) soya yoghurt
180ml (3/4c.) blueberries
Oven to 180C
In a medium bowl combine the almond flour, buckwheat flour, ground flax, brown sugar, bicarb and salt. In a separate, small bowl combine the wet ingredients: vanilla, vinegar, oil and yoghurt. Make a well in the flour mixture and pour in the wet, stirring until combined but not over-beaten. Gently fold in the blueberries.
Spoon into lined muffin tins; about 3/4 full, but my liners were awesome wrap ones so they were a little bigger than standard, so judge for yourself. Bake for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out virtually crumb free.
I LOVE the vanilla chai tea it’s so good! I try not to drink it much though because it has a lot of sugar in it =(
all those drinks are awesome though. The Green Goodness one rules too cause it has a ton of greens in it.
Try a juice fast! You would have to have a juicer though. You lose weight insanely fast and if you keep up a healthy lifestyle after that you will keep the weight off.
Weight management is a combo of putting good food in your body and getting exercise. The most important being what you eat. Eat more raw veggies and fruit and AVOID empty calories such as chips, etc.
Think of coconut oil as butter. I usually use a tablespoon or 2 at most. I melt it and spread it on toasted bread just like butter! Then you can throw a tablespoon of peanut butter on there. and maybe some bananas? It’s SO good.
What you do is slice up zucchini, carrots, yellow and red beets, eggplant, and put in some green beans. Grease a roasting pan with coconut oil, layer the veggies, then brush the veggies with olive oil. Sprinkle with black pepper and red pepper. Bake at 425 for about 20 mins. Let them cool and they are crunchy.
Yes please! So pretty, too! Perfect for the 4th of July, me thinks.
I don’t really know because I have only been to the UK a few select times, but I will tell you this! You are VERY lucky for living over there. You guys have a ton more organic/natural food over there than we do. I loved the M&S gas station stops and Pret A Manger is awesome for good healthy food on the go!!
My suggestion would be to go to a natural grocery store such as M&S or the like and just take time to look around. I bet you will find some good stuff =)
