What Is Left? A Blog Review

Standard

What is left? is a lovely blog with tons of wonderful recipes (Including incredible photos)

It is bright, easy to navigate, easy to read (even for us older folk who need the cheaters LOL)

There are tons of tips and articles as well.

Not only is it gluten free, it is also cow dairy, sugar, garlic, red beans, red meat, eggs, and cranberries free as well!

I really like this theme (Sort of a journal feel to it)

I will be coming back to this blog again and again.

Fired up About Flax!

Standard

These tiny little seeds have surprisingly large benefits to your health.
Flax is gluten free, which is fabulous but it is also high in fibre (more than 2g per tablespoon!). It is also high in magnesium(a mineral that is key to controlling blood sugar levels because it helps cells use insulin).
Flax is high in ALA (Alpha linolenic acid) ALA is what the body uses to make the same omega-3 fatty acids you would get from fish. (I don’t like fish, so this is really good new for me)
So whether you have Celiac disease/gluten intolerance, are diabetic or vegan, flax seed is a great item to keep on hand.
When you purchase you flax, I suggest that you buy the seeds and grind it yourself as you need it.(ground flax is easier for the body to digest) If you buy ground flax, keep it in the fridge.
Not sure how to eat your flax? It is easy.
Ground flax can be sprinkled onto yogurt, hot and cold cereals, hummus, or ice cream.
Add it to milk-shakes, smoothies, or juices.
Mix it into casseroles, meat dishes and salads.
Add it to pasta dishes and meat loaves.
Try coating some chicken with ground flax and baking it in the oven.
Add ground flax when you are making bread, buns, cookies, cakes and muffins.
Ground flax is a great egg substitute:
1 tbs ground flax mixed with 3 tbs water equals one egg. (Be sure to let the mixture sit for 2 or 3 minutes to thicken it.
Ground flax can also be used as a substitute for margarine, shortening or butter. Keep in mind, though that when you use flax instead of fats, your baked goods will brown faster. Adjust your cooking times accordingly.

Ground flax as a fat replacer:
Substitute 3 tbs ground flax for each tbs of fat needed.

Using ground flax will help lower your blood sugar, assist in weight loss, and keep your bowels working properly. You can’t lose!
