I really liked this recipe, the bread is really tasty. I have to work on how I shape my bread, as you can see in the picture. Also, I am using a silicone loaf pan. I think that a metal one would help with the shape of the bread. I feel encouraged because, this is something that is important to me and I can see progress. It is better than the first loaf I made. I like this recipe too, it doesn't have any sugar just honey. I want to live my life in a simple way...so I like that his bread has very few ingredients!!!
It's nice to eat a turkey sandwich with warm bread that you just made. I tried out a recipe for wheat bread and I think my first shot went well. I chose to do the 100% whole wheat version with some amazing wheat dough that is merely ground wheat berries, nothing added! I feel as if it will get better the more loaves I make!
Taken at 1:32 pm Eastern time; while on the phone with a dear friend in Los Angeles at 10:32 am.
I took a deep breath. The kind of deep breath you take when you know you have a long lonely road ahead of you. Today was going to be that kind of day. I answered the phone and a cheerful and familiar voice was on the other end of the phone. "It's the Spring Equinox at 1:32 pm your time, and 10:32 am my time!". So we planned to take a picture at that moment; the moment when spring begins. At that instant I felt cheerful and instantly connected to another adult human being. Who needs tons and tons of friends when you have those that you can share such amazing moments with! I count down the moments till we can take pictures of old barns and drink wheatgrass and date shakes together, my sweet friend!
I'm sick. I'm almost positive I will eventually have bronchitis. I cannot even get a cough without my lungs lovingly embracing bronchitis. I hate it. I was researching what I could do naturally to boost my immune system to avoid getting sicker. I found some great suggestions, ones I just might try. The Imagery technique below...IDK. It made me laugh, so I just thought I would share. I don't think I will be trying this one!
"In your mind, see yourself as a tiny person who can go on a trip down into your lungs. On this journey, you carry a bucket and a special backpack that holds all of the supplies you need to clean up your respiratory system. Take in a deep breath and begin your trip, writes Barbara Dossey, R.N., co-author of Rituals of Healing: Using Imagery for Health and Wellness. Move with the cool air through your nose, down the back of your throat and into the windpipe. Here, two large airways branch off to the left and right. Choose one of the airways and follow it down into your lungs.
Notice the condition of the walls of your breathing passages. If you see inflammation, redness or roughness, imagine painting those walls with a cool, relaxing blue-green solution. If you see any airways that are constricted, caress the surrounding muscles, so they’ll relax. If you find mucus or phlegm, mop it up with a sponge and squeeze it into the bucket you are carrying with you. As your journey ends and you retrace your steps through your respiratory system, feel your body clear any remaining phlegm from your throat with a gentle cough. Feel a sensation of warmth and relaxation in your chest.
Dossey says to practice this imagery twice a day for 15 to 20 minutes each time until the condition clears"
I have been juicing quite steadily for the past couple of weeks. My new obsession is a concoction of the following veggies/fruits:
3 organic carrots
1 organic apple (mostly fuji or granny smith)
1/4 organic cucumber
3 stalks of organic celery
1/2 rind of organic lemon
organic wheat grass
The lemon rind is new, and it goes deliciously with the cucumber. This recipe works really well, it has an amazingly fresh flavor. The wheat grass is new for me. I just purchased a small container of it, and it seems tricky to juice so I am working on it. I would also love to grow my own, because it can be quite costly. I was amazed to discover just how wonderful wheatgrass is for you!!!!!!!! I was also amazed at how energized I felt, it felt amazing....way better than a cup of coffee or shot of espresso! I am hooked!
