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!

Utilizing Folk Medicine Remedies to Jump Start Fat and Weight Loss

Using folk medicine remedies may improve overall health for most; specifically in the quest for fat and weight loss.

According to the CDC, over 30% of adults in the US are categorized as overweight or obese.

Being overweight or obese can increase a person’s chances of developing diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease, as well as skin disorders and joint problems.

There is no clinical cure for being overweight or obese, however there are folk medicine remedies that CAN help cure obesity.

Water: Drinking your body’s necessary water intake can help jump start fat/weight loss efforts. When a person does not receive enough water, water retention can set in and the body’s ability to function properly slows down.

For anyone wanting to lose excess fat/weight in regards to overall health, drinking six to eight ounces of water upon waking up in the morning to hydrate the body will help. Also, depending upon individual body weight and activity level a person can gauge specific water intake. But usually drinking up to eight glasses of water a day is recommended.

Folk Medicine Kitchen Tidbit: **Adding a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar into your water once a day can improve your body’s metabolism and help with detoxifying the body.**

Fruits and Veggies: Making lifestyle changes via increasing fruit and veggie intake can lower body weight and improve fat loss in a positive way!

For three reasons — fruits and veggies are low in calories, they have a lot of nutrients required for the body to function and they are high in fiber.

Some fruits and veggies to add to your lifestyle include apples, avocados, bananas, broccoli, celery, cauliflower, collards, dandelion, honeydews, onions, tomatoes, watermelons and zucchini.

Knowledge: Gaining knowledge about food and doing your research about the content of the foods consumed can help with decreasing fat/weight loss. Also, for most, trial and error (because no one body is the same and no one food or regimen will work for all people) is another useful key.

Take care,

Three Folk Medicine Foods for Pernicious Anemia…

Anemia is usually a term used when explaining iron deficiency – but there is another type of anemia that some may be unfamiliar with: Pernicious anemia.

Pernicious anemia is caused a vitamin B-12 deficiency and it occurs when the blood cells grow to a larger than normal size and doesn’t divide to make new blood cells, which causes the body to not function properly.

Blood cells carry oxygen through the body and when a person suffers from pernicious anemia they can experience dizziness, muscular weakness and shortness of breath.

People with pernicious anemia usually take B-12 supplements to correct their B-12 deficiency, however, adequate amounts of B-12 can be found naturally through many foods used for folk medicine.

Three types of folk medicine foods to help combat pernicious anemia include:

  • Leafy Vegetables, ex: collard greens and spinach (are also rich in folate).

  • Fish, especially tuna, which contains over 42% of the recommended daily allowance of B-12.

  • Poultry, specifically chicken and turkey.

If you think you are running low on Vitamin B-12, try the above foods and you will physically and mentally feel (for the better) the difference!
