My daughter gives these cutie pie muffins a "MORE" which is the best compliment there is. Plus, I don't care if these muffins are all she eats for dinner because they're packed with vitamin C, protein and healthy fats.
12 muffin tins
10 cutie oranges (mandarins)
1/2 cup monk fruit/maple syrup
2 1/2 cups almond flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup blueberries
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Place muffin tins in muffin pan.
Place cuties in a saucepan and cover with water. Simmer for 10 minutes.
Remove from water, drain well and let cool.
Remove skins off half of the cuties. Leave the other half with skins intact. Discard removed skins.
Place cuties with skins in blender. Place cuties without skins in blender. Blend well.
Place eggs and vanilla extract in a bowl and beat until fluffy and doubled in size.
Add almond flour, sweetener, baking soda, and blended oranges. Mix well.
Fold in blueberries.
Spoon batter into muffin tins, filling 2/3 of the way up.
Bake for 15-20 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes.
I recorded a YouTube video today specifically made for a need I've been hearing from my clients and students. If you have a loved one who is elderly and has trouble getting on and off the floor, it can be more challenging to find workout classes online. I filmed this short video for them
The perfect solution for beat-up pears. #GF and sweetened with dates. #gfbaking can be tricky for the digestive system due to all of the gluten free flours used. A lot of people become gluten free, and then continue to struggle with symptoms due to molecular mimicry - a process by which the #immunesystem “brushfire” style reacts to any food that resembles gluten. I struggled with grains for years not knowing that GF actually meant #grainfree for my body. These days I skip the gluten free baking mixes and go right for the almond flour. These muffins are moist and bouncy just like any self-respecting muffin should be. And they pass the best test of all - my picky babe eats them right up! #ishbelwell #noprocessedfoods #nosugar
Your #adrenalglands are arguably one of the most hard-working organs in the body. They not only manage the stress handling system, but they also play a vital role in #sexhormones, #energy and vitality, #blood sugar, #immunity and the ability to have a sense of well-being. They produce #antiaging support and play a part in inflammation and fluid balance. Stress can affect their function in monumental ways. While conventional medicine only recognizes #addisonsdisease and #cushingsdisease as adrenal disorders requiring treatment, the adrenals often struggle unnoticed for years with symptoms ranging from #hormonebalance, to #fatigue, to trouble sleeping, to an inability to handle stress, to a suppressed immune system. People with adrenal struggles are often told they have thyroid issues, only to discover their thyroid is technically within normal range. There are a myriad of ways to support the adrenals. The best place to start is in the gut. Pathogens inhabiting the gut and food sensitivities compromise GI function and cue the immune system and the adrenals to react. One of the best ways to alleviate stress on the adrenals is to identify GI pathogens and food sensitivities, which not only dramatically increases absorption of vital nutrients and improves overall health, but also alleviates the immune system and adrenals from constantly having to exert energy to deal with these GI threats. Often, issues related to the adrenals are quickly improved when gut healing and food sensitivities are identified and resolved. #ishbelwell #adrenalhealth #gastrointestinal #gihealth
I've been following The Sleep Doctor https://thesleepdoctor.com/ for a while now and have been implementing his suggestions into my life as well as suggesting them to my clients. One big thing you can do right now to ensure you have optimal energy all week long is to go to sleep and wake up at exactly the same time every day. Do you tend to try to "catch up" on your sleep over the weekends? Turns out this doesn't prevent metabolic dysregulation or overall energy according to a new study on the topic.
Remember, no matter how important you think that next "to do" is, nothing is as important as rest. You'll get everything you have to do, done in way less time if you're well-rested. And! You won't be nearly so cranky. And! Your waistline and your overall health will see dramatic results.
