Whipped cream without all the fat, that’s good for joints and wrinkles!

I will admit upfront that this is not that fast to make.  But its so worthwhile.  I LOVE cream. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.  I’m all for full fat diets, I believe in fat.  However, there’s a limit, like with everything else.  Whipped cream is packed full of fat, much more than occurs naturally in food.  So, of course it does not make for a healthy diet.  Well, what if I told you there’s a way to make whipped cream with just the amount of fat contained in full cream cow’s  milk?  Crazy right!  Yes, its crazy, but its true!  I found out how on youtube.  Ps.  You don’t need to use sugar.  Here’s how you do it:

The thickening agent is gelatin. Which is packed full of Collagen, contains ZERO FAT, and collagen is good for keeping wrinkles at bay and strengthening the connective tissue (tendons and ligaments) in joints 🙂  What more can one wish for.

Enjoy folks! mmmmmm

Gluten and lactose free, honey sweetened shortbread

coconut shortbread

This recipe is genius… and super quick!  It uses coconut flour.  I found the original recipe here I doubled up the ingredients: 12 tablespoons coconut flour 8 tablespoons coconut oil 3 tablespoons honey (add according to how sweet you’d prefer) 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence Method: Melt the coconut oil.  Mix all ingredients together till the mixture forms a dough, form small balls and place on a baking tray, flatten with fork, and bake for 15 minutes in preheated oven at 180 C. Prep time in total was 25 minutes (5 minutes mixing and placing on baking tray, 15 minutes baking). This recipe makes about 14 cookies.  The texture was good, and sweetness enough for me, but I think butter would work better than coconut oil.  Coconut oil gives it a kind of wild aftertaste.  It was  nice and crumbly 🙂 I am addicted to cookies, which does not work well with my otherwise healthy lifestyle.  White flour and regular sugar has a bad effect (bloatedness, acid reflux, indigestion), so its an absolute dream come true for me that there are alternatives.  I’ll be trying this out with butter and post an update soon.  I’ll also be trying a rice and corn flour shortbread soon.
