Candied Fennel Seeds

Tried something new that came out great. I wanted the taste of fennel but sweet, and not savory. First I prepared a simple syrup. Half sugar, and half water in a sauce pan. Cooking it down until ut reduced into a simple syrup. Keeping it warm on low heat so it wouldn’t harden.

I toasted some fennel seeds in a sauce pan. Just enough heat to turn them light brown and get the flavor to release. As soon as the seeds toasted, I stirred in enough simple syrup to coated the seeds over low heat in the sauce pan. Once coated I immediately put seeds on to parchment paper. Smeard them into a thin layer. Let them cool 1 minute. Once semi hardened I began pulling the candy off the paper, and breaking it up.

For a dust of the candy I placed them in a food processor. Taking a small mesh strainer, and seperated the large pieces from the dust. Now I had irregular shapes of candied fennel seeds. A dusting powder, and irregular pieces, could be used many ways, in different recipes.

The taste was exquisite. It tasted like homemade healthy licorice. Candied fennel seeds can be used on salads, in dressing, sauces, desserts, and drinks. Who knew something so simple could be so appetizing to the pallet. I can’t wait to try this candy in different recipes. To start though I put it on a salad.

How To Cut Onions or Jalapenos Without Crying

Cutting onions is never fun, unless your an onion lover. The smell of onions makes your eyes water, and burn. If you have to cut a few pounds your in for a fight, unless you know a few tricks.

Onions are a base, and you can easily escape the pain by neutralizing them with acid. Lemon and vinegar can be great escapes if they go with the ingredients for the meal you are preparing. Just rub your cutting surface with lemon, or vinegar, before you begin cutting. The smell will be balanced as you cut, to get a breath of fresh air.

However, the fool proof way to escape the torture of onion tears, and burns is your breathing. Do not breath through your nose, once you begin cutting. Only breath through your mouth until you finish cutting fresh onions. This will leave your nasal passage, and tear ducts safe from onion aromas. Your mouth can handle the onion aromas in the air. Plus as you inhale through your mouth, saliva will immerse the onion particles that you inhale. Remember wash your hands as soon as you are done handling the onions. You do not want to rub onion juice in your eye. This works well for spicy peppers to like jalapenos. Now next time you want some flavor in your recipe, you don’t have to suffer, or be fearful of pain.

Secret To Living Healthy

As humans we become what we eat, hear, see, and smell in our environments. Our daily auto-suggestion, shapes our thoughts into what we perceive life should be. Once you control and master what you absorb in life, it will change how you feel and think as a reaction of it.

The places you go, and people you associate with, motivate your growth, or make you stagnant in life. Have fun with the people you love. Play games, go to a movie, or just spend time with them. You can love your family, and friends even if they’re not supportive. Everyone has someone they love but can no longer hang out with. You can set designated time to spend with them, only see them at certain functions, or catch up online. However, some people you care about can not be supportive, but it can’t stop you from living healthy.

Be you regardless where you are, or who your with. If you can’t be yourself, then you shouldn’t be in places, or with certain people that are negative to your health mentally, or physically. Living healthy has compromises but not at your life’s expense. A balanced life of activities, socialization, fresh food nutrition, and sleep will make you live out your wildest dreams. Here are some steps to help anyone begin to live a healthy lifestyle.

Once you take accountability for what you want to do to change your life, decide what your doing it for. A focus on the reason you want to live healthy , will give you drive to accomplish your goal. You can do it to save money, or for your family, and even yourself. Motivation of fufillinng these aspirations will keep you disciplined consitantly, and committed to moving forward.

Write your reasons, goals, and plan down. Post them on your calendar, refrigerator, mirror, or post them. Writing your goals and affirmations is a confirmation of achievement, and a vision board. The more you see what you want to succeed, the more you use healthy tactics to make it happen. Use healthy support of family and friends to motivate you in times of need. Watch your plan of action you plant, grow rewards you benefit from.

Your accountability for achieving will definitely drive you to a new life, you know you can have. Take care of you being disciplined in your commitment to succeed. Use a calender, or journal, and write down every day you complete a task to achieve your goal. As you write it down you affirm to your own self, that you are one step closer to completing your goal. You can write down what you eat, exercises, books you read, or activities. Before you know it, you will visually understand how you are creating healthy habits.

Our bodies help our minds, stay focused. Being healthy will make you think healthy. This process is a self loving motivational commitment of your body to your mind. By not putting harmful things into your body, you show yourself love, and appreciation for your life. If you smoke cigarettes, you may want to get a patches to stop, join a support group or start vaping, Every state has a quit hotline that will send you free patches, and gum to help you quit. If you do drugs, or are an alcoholic go to rehab, or stop. These are the beginning steps to living healthy.

Sleep is necessary to be able to function healthy. If you have trouble sleeping, by the end of an active day, you will be ready for sleep. Getelf on adequate sleep regiment. If you need a nap take one earlier in the day. Try also not napping at all. Awake early daily accomplish your activities and goals for a day, then go to bed. This will give you 6 to 8 hours of required sleep. You will have more time and energy in a day to fufillinng your dreams. Unhealthy things contribute to urges to be unfocused, unhealthy, and unsuccessful. Too much of anything is not healthy for you, moderation is necessary. Eat healthy balanced meals. If your not sure what online there are websites, and apps, that will help you follow a balance nutrition good for you.

Everything you need to consume that is healthy for you is around the perimeter of your grocery store. You also can start a garden for an activity and grow it yourself. Follow the U shape of your market and get fruits vegtables, meat, dairy, and starches. Train yourself to only go in between isles for necessities, like condiments, personal care, or single portion treats. Try not to eat processed, or can foods, instead find a fresh substitute. Make a ham, or turkey breast for dinner, so you have fresh meat for a sandwich. Handmade sausages can replace a hot dog, and they’re cost effective.

Breakfast is the most important part of the day. It gives you energy to mentally prepare for your day started off right. Protein is important for energy, and to curve your appetite. Don’t spend money on protein powder, or drinks unless your pressed for time, or incapable of consuming or making your own. Snack on cottage cheese, broccoli, peanut butter, nuts, vegtable sprouts, kale chips, or oatmeal for a meatless protein boost. You can also add these ingredients to your smoothies or juicing, to make your own protein drink.

Vegtables, and teas can become your new healthy high. Try new things like okra vegtable chips. The will give you energy to concentrate on your focus in life. Eat the rainbow, there are so many colors, and flavors of healthy foods to choose from. If you can’t eat veggies and fruit, juice them. Juicing can be costly, unless you juice smart. Use water, coconut water, or milks, for your base liquid, when juicing your fruits and vegetables.

Tea can be made hot, or cold, and is a great form of additional counted daily water intake. Tea also is great for relaxing, rejuvenating, and focusing the body, and mind. Whether its moringa and rooibos for vitamins, tumeric and ginger for inflammation, matcha and black for concentration, or hibiscus and chamomile to relax; drinking tea can give you what you need. Plus you can use fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables such as parsley, ginger, tumeric, pineapple, or radish to make your own tea.

Sugar is something to watch moderation for. My motto is if it’s not brown it doesn’t go down. Breads, should be whole grain, plus sugar should be raw, and not bleached.

Honey, or agave, is great sugar substitute, and there are variety of different grain breads. At home I follow this guideline. However, certain occasions like dinner dates, birthday parties, or co workers bringing treats to work I make acceptions. However, these acceptions are single portions, that way there is no error for binge eating into excusing self sabotage.

Eating properly is great especially accompanied by healthy activities. Healthy activities will also make you thirsty to drink more water. Oh you don’t like water? Try infusing it with fruits and vegetables, or drink seltzer water. Playing sports, exercise, walking, fishing, and gardening, are good ways to stay active. I usually start my day drinking a bottle of water, then one more after lunch, and another during my workout. You can be up to 48 oz of water consumed before dinner time.

Tea, seltzer water, and foods like cucumber, or melons can all contribute to your water intake. Staying hydrated will help you not be cranky, or sluggish because your actually not giving your body proper hydration.

Recording these workout, eating, and activity accomplishments gives you pride in honoring yourself for how much you improve over time. Before you know it 30 days turn into 90, and in a few months you can see no other way to live. You will feel the benefits of this and want more of it. You will physically get stronger, giving your mind power to make you a new you. Oatmeal and a banana in the morning will began to feel like a vitamin. Fruit and nuts for a snack will give you energy, for the next part of your day. A salad and cup of tea any time of day, will make your body feel rejuvenated.

Once you start a new way of living all these things I have listed will become simple to do. Everyday will get easier. Your body will began to crave the health it is now used to. You will forget about your unhealthy past, because the memory of it’s enjoyment will turn unattractive to you. You will create new healthy rewards, like trying an international fruit you never had, ice tea at Starbucks, or homemade custard at the ice cream parlor. You will begin to go out and enjoy life. Meet new people in the healthy area of the grocery store you shop, and doing the new activities you take part in.

Best Home Remedy For swollen Gums or Wisdom Teeth Teething

Wisdom teeth growing in can be a pain in the neck. However, with the help of some foods you can rely less on pain relievers, and mouth ointments. These two home remedies are great to cure swollen gums.

Garlic is number one. This is not good for children because of the taste, and it burns when applied. It may sting or burn but it works wonders for adults. I usually do this at bed or nap time, so you can relax and wake up pain free. Just cut of a slice of a clove of garlic, and chew it on the teeth that hurt, to break it up some. Place it on the gum area in the swollen, and painful area of your mouth. Hold it hear as long as you can if it’s 1 min or 15 minutes. Drinking water helps subside it’s strong flavor. After you take it out drink water until you eat something after a nap or sleep.

My favorite easy remedy is tumeric. This is great for children not infants but age 5 and up. It does not sting or burn, but its mildly spicy like pepper. It is number two because it is not as effective as garlic. It works but not as fast, you have to do this more times than with garlic. However, it does relieve swelling without a torng taste, or burning sensation. Peel the tumeric and cut a slice. Do the same as the garlic, chew it to break it up, and park it in your gumline where you are feeling pain, or swollen. This does not burn so you can leave it for hours or as long as you like.

Unlike most people I have extra wisdom teeth. They have been growing in even in my 30’s. My dentist said as long as there not unbearable there’s no need to remove them. I agree, but from time to time I feel like a teething baby. So garlic is my number one and tumeric is my number two remedy. I also gargle and rinse my mouth with Listerine, or peroxide when brushing my teeth. As I try more alternative home remedies I will update this post.
