Simple Folk Medicine Kitchen Treat

If you have a sweet tooth you don’t have to zone in on the heaviest, calorie, sugary ridden treat you can find.

Most of the time, there is something you can put together with simple ingredients in your kitchen to provide a healthier (and perhaps even more delectable) option for your dessert.

Cottage cheese and Manuka Honey.

Fairly simple and can satisfy a sweet tooth (at least my sweet tooth):

One 1/2 cup of cottage cheese & 1 teaspoon of honey.

That’s it – Enjoy!

WMF Review & Father’s Day Brunch Recipe

Hi Everyone — I have been holding out on the WMF cookware review, but I finally had a chance to use the items that I purchased. I also crafted a Father’s Day Brunch recipe that will make that special father in your life feel all warm, full and fuzzy on his special day.

Now, focusing on the WMF cookware:

I must say that I am impressed. The piece of cookware I tested is sturdy, ergonomically friendly and modern in design.

Trying out the WMF Profi Plus Wisk.

The WMF Profi Plus Wisk helped me create the Father’s Day Brunch Recipe, which is corn bread and crab meat egg bites.

I used corn bread ingredients that were premixed, Bob’s Red Mill Cornbread Mix.

Making the premixed cornbread was easy enough since I just followed the instructions that were listed on the back of the bag, however I substituted a few needed ingredients (ex: instead of using whole egg, I used liquid egg whites and I substituted whole milk with oat milk).

For the crab egg bites I used 2 tablespoons of lump crab meat and 1/4 cup of liquid egg whites (enough for one serving per ramekin).

As most may know, ghee is my go to, so I added a half teaspoon of ghee to each serving of crab egg bite to provide richness and flavor.

Place the corn bread and the crab egg bite mixture in the oven on “bake” at a temperature of 375.

The corn bread may take 25-30 minutes and the crab egg bites take 20-30 minutes, depending on your desired firmness of your egg bites.

Once the corn bread and the crab egg bites are ready, you can serve with the beverage of your choice, but preferably coffee or hot tea since it is for brunch.

The tasty “potassium, protein and selenium” packed result(s)😋.

Enjoy & Happy Father’s Day from Folk Medicine Kitchen!

Add Some (Folk Medicine) Flavor to Your Foods

When you think of folk medicine and food together, what do you think of?

Bland? Earthy? Not appetizing?

I know of a few people that think eating natural foods their absolute natural state is not very tasty, however anything worth enjoying requires effort.

If you have similar thoughts about using folk medicine in your cooking and want to start enjoying folk medicine foods more, learning how to flavor your food is key.

Sea Salt:

There are different types of salt out there, however you want to avoid the traditional table salt, since that is not very good for the human body to process.

Natural sea salt actually decreases bodily inflammation and boosts the body’s immunity response. Sea salt is best and it goes well (IMHO) with chicken, turkey and most vegetables.

Cayenne Pepper:

Cayenne pepper if for you if you like hot and fiery flavor. Cayenne peppers contains capsaicin, which is proven to lower blood pressure and joint pain.

I recommend using only a dash of cayenne pepper to add loads of flavor and adding it to mushrooms, spinach and even tomatoes!

Black Pepper:

Black pepper adds a little spice that warms up your food with subtle flavor, just without the burn. Black pepper contains piperine, which acts as an anti-inflammatory to stave off certain types of headaches! Black pepper also helps the body to absorb certain nutrients in the body.

Black pepper goes great with, grass-fed beef, fish and most other sea food.

Try these three seasonings the next time you prepare a dish and discover a whole new experience that takes you from bland to flavorful.
