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.

More on the last folk medicine remedy suggestion soon.

Take care,

Two Folk Medicine Remedies for Mild Dehydration

As we move closer to the summer months, temperatures across the United States will steadily increase, which means more heat and less moisture.

I live in the Charlotte, NC area and over the past few days, temperatures have spiked to over 90 degrees (a little over 32.2 degrees celsius) — so drinking enough fluid is essential, especially as an active person. Unfortunately, most people in the US walk around mildly dehydrated and do not know it.

Signs of mild dehydration include headaches, dry eyes, muscle cramps, infrequent urination, dizziness and fatigue. But don’t fret– mild dehydration can be easily cured at home, with two Folk Medicine remedies.

Fruit: Including more fruit in your daily diet not only gives your body the essential vitamins and nutrients it screams for — fruits contain natural salts and sugars (fruit sugar is not table sugar) to reestablish your body’s electrolytes. Electrolytes are important to keep you hydrated to keep important bodily processes working as they should.

Juicy fruits, like watermelons, mangoes, plums and peaches (any fruit that has high water content) are recommended.

Water: Now of course, we can’t cure dehydration without water, right??

Did you know, the average adult body is made up of over 55% water?

If you lose as little as 1% of that water you can easily feel the symptoms of dehydration.

To avoid dehydration, know how much water you need. There is a simple calculation you can use to determine your specific daily water intake needs, which is “your body weight multiplied by .5“.

For example: 175 lbs x .5 = 87.5 ounces of water per day.

Now you could possibly need more, depending on your activity levels and/or any certain conditions your body is in (such as pregnancy).

With that being said– stay hydrated and stay safe this Memorial Day weekend.
