So this evening I was craving something sweet , so I made these scones using spelt flour...
They came out so well , perfect texture and so simple to make ...

I added some clotted cream on the top one , it was delish , I will be using spelt flour from now on ...

I have some organic strawberries that I will blend down tomorrow , and make a strawberry sauce , that`s if I manage to save some :giggle:

Well today has been a good day thank God , a day that I felt I could get up and do something , a day where I felt energy instead of the tiredness 🙌
So I decided to start on my decluttering in the kitchen , so far I have hung my spice rack up , now they are all in the rack and not cluttering my sides...
Done some deep cleaning , then felt the tiredness , so I made this lovely pot of lemon & lemon grass tea ...
I scraped the zest from the lemon , put the zest into the net in the middle of pot , then squeezed the juice in the pot , crushed the lemon grass ( O that smells so good ) and put that in the mesh and let it steep for a good five mins , it is so refreshing 🍋

My wife has been on a decluttering kick also and at the moment is decluttering the laundry area. That tea is probably soothing, relaxing and comforting. I could use some of that.

Those look like little heart shaped shortbreads. Later the wife and I will have some pound cake with fresh sliced strawberries and whipped cream (Redi-Whip). You sure do come up with some clever concoctions that's for sure.

Rose,
with your diabetes you have to be very careful with your (fruit and veg 'sugar' content' -
say for instance, 'watermelon/beet', etc. it is so high in SUGAR that it can be very detrimental
to those who have diabetes - but, it is very HEALTHY for a healthy body who is just
seeking to improve their over-all immune-system and body-being,..
to much of a 'good-thing', sometimes is not a 'good-thing',..
PS. 43:5.
Why are you cast down, O my soul? and why are you disquieted within me? hope in God:
for I shall yet praise him, Who is the health of my countenance, and my God.

we have known many over the years who have had adverse affects to 'real good and healthy foods',
and the reason for this is, is that their bodies were completely OUT of BALANCE, because of their
'past-present-in-jesting-habits'...

if we become convicted by The Holy Spirit to clean-up our 'old-eating/drinking/smoking habits,
then of course it would be evident that certain changes begin to take place in our bodies,
and that we would begin to see and feel the difference in ourselves/lives for the better -
we begin to see that this could only come to fruit by achieving another level of Spiritual Growth...

Hi @oldethennew ...
I have been juicing now for over a year , my blood sugar levels have gone down to pre diabetes ...

The natural sugar in fruit is completely different to the sugar you that has been processed...

All is well with my soul :)...

Genesis 1:29
Then God said, “Look! I have given you every seed-bearing plant throughout the earth and all the fruit trees for your food.

This is the Scripture God led me to before I started juicing...

I have this one. Easy to use and easy to clean. Doesn't separate the juice from the pulp so you get all the goodies. It is called Ninja Nutribullet.

This is a lovely simple tea , and very good for you...
I took the zest from my grapefruit and poured boiling water in the jar , sealed it for a few hours ...
Honey can be added if the taste is to sharp ...

Hi @oldethennew ...
I have researched and researched , and to be honest , there is so many false things said about fruits , it is quiet astonishing...

I have gone deep into this , and like I said , the proof is in the pudding , my sugar levels have gone down , not up...

You see , if I was to eat my fruit , then my pancreas which is sick , has to work hard , but juicing my fruits , most of them , my pancress does not need to work , so juicing gives my pancreas a much needed rest...

I love juicing my veg and fruits , it works for me , my skin is glowing , I sleep better , and much more energy...

Being type 2 diabetic , I have to watch the high carbs in foods , so I eat mostly plantbased food , sometimes chicken , but the sugar found in cakes , and most processed foods is dangerous for me , but juicing is a great way to get all my vitimins etc , plus it keeps my weight down and my health in balance...
...xox...
