Are You Going To Age On Purpose Or Be A Victim To Time?

The language around aging and disease blows me away. Think about it. How many times do you say something negative about yourself, or think fearful thoughts about getting a life threatening disease? How often do you pass the mirror and say you look terrible?

Don't worry, you are not alone. I do it too. Yet, I am becoming more and more aware of it, while also witnessing the power of being responsible for the gratitude and love that I give my body. I am also aware of how much harm we do to ourselves without even knowing it - without catching ourselves.

We have tremendous power to eradicate our patterns and it starts inside with our self talk and the feelings that correspond to them.

Every day we age, and every day we have a new opportunity to steer our vessel and life to where we want to go. How easy is it to walk in the kitchen to make a cup of jo? Easy, right? Well, creating a healthy, vibrant and beautiful life can be easy too. We just have to be on "purpose" with the process and learn new skills.

Now is the time to strengthen the skill of aging on purpose, of getting in the habit of a new self talk and self care that paves the way for aging with vitality and beauty.

Check out my FB live today on this very subject (only about 10 minutes long).  There is also a gift for you to get going on this new practice. You can also watch it below on YouTube in case you don't use Facebook.

Baked Ulu (Breadfruit) Pancakes

IMG_7078.JPG

 

If you can possibly get breadfruit, you will think you have died and gone to heaven. This starchy fruit can be used for so many dishes you will not believe it! Did I mention, delicious? OMG.

See the goupy stuff on the cookie sheet below. That is just ripe breadfruit, also known as Ulu. It can be cooked and used to eat like a potato, or in a stew, curry or whatever. When it is soft and goupy like in the picture below it can be used for puddings, pancakes, or any dish you want to be sweet. You would not believe how sweet this fruit is when it is ripe.

When we baked the cakes below and/or fried them in coconut oil (Barlean's Culinary Oil), they are so sweet you do not need any additional sweetener.

In the photo above, I cooked a chopped apple and then added some yogurt and cinnamon on top for an incredible breakfast or meal.

Ingredients:

One ripe ulu (breadfruit)
Coconut oil

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350.

Ulu Instructions:

Peel off the skin and remove the core (it's very easy to do so when it's ripe).

Kneed the flesh on a board to make dough.

Grease the surface of a baking sheet with coconut oil to prepare for baking instead. Take a scoop and place the dough onto the baking sheet and spread it flat.

Place the baking sheet in the oven at 350.

Bake for 10 to 15 minutes on each side (time depends on how thick the dough is).

Optional:

It's tasty plain but you can also top it off with fruits and yogurt like I did. Experiment and see what works!

You can also refrigerate that which you do not eat, then have them available to pop in the toaster to warm and use with nut butter, avocado or just plain!

YUM!!

Blueberry Lime Crepe Cakes

This is the new name and version of high protein – low carb pancakes. They are so easy!

One bowl with a fork, or a blender, and one pan will do the trick.

Blueberry Lime Crepe Cakes

Batter Ingredients:

¾ cup          water

½ cup         gluten free pancake batter

2         eggs (organic of course)

1 scoop    protein powder (I use unflavored whey - vanilla would be well too)

1 tbsp         Barlean’s Forti Flax (ground flax seeds)

1 tsp        coconut oil

butter and/or coconut oil for cooking

Topping

½ cup         frozen blueberries (of course you can use fresh as well)

1 tsp        maple syrup, honey or sweetener of choice

Celtic Sea Salt to finish

Fresh lime to top it off

Cooking the Crepe-Cakes

Starting with the water, combine all ingredients into a Vita Mix or blender on the lowest speed. If you do not have a blender, then use a bowl and a fork to blend/whisk all the ingredients.

Heat a skillet on medium to high heat. Place a pat of butter, coconut oil, or my favorite, a little of both, in the skillet.

Blueberry Lime Crepe Cakes

Cook all the cakes you want. When you are cooking your last cake and have already turned it, add the blueberries around the edge. You can also remove the cake and then cook the blueberries. They only need to be in the pan for a minute or so. Add your sweetener of choice and maybe a little more coconut oil or butter just for some more decadence.

Remove from the skillet and top off the cakes. Top with salt and squeezes of fresh lime.

OMG, these are soo good!!!
