Let's talk food for just a minute here...
How many of you often feel overwhelmed by the massive amount of information that is out there about food and nutrition? I honestly believe that if you listen to every single "expert" there is out there, you would probably be forced to result to eating nothing, as tips on diet and nutrition can often be contradicting and counter productive.
This is why it SO IMPORTANT that we learn to eat what is right for YOUR body! It's important to listen to your body and what it's trying to tell you because I guarantee you that if you eat something that isn't good for you, your body will be sending you that message the next day.
The war on food is raging in our day and I think everyone is forgetting that we're ALL IN THIS TOGETHER! I am not against people who eat gluten-free, as I know people who thrive on gluten-free diets, even if I don't. Same goes for any other diet (Keto, Paleo, etc). And to those who eat foods that are full of chemicals, overly processed, and full of sugar that is incredilby unhealthy for your body:
I will ALWAYS encourage you to eat healthy because I care. But I will NEVER look down on you or make you feel like you are less of a person if you choose to eat processed, sugar filled food. Again, we're all in this together and as we teach with love and compassion we can all help each other on our roads through life. I eat 100% organic and refined sugar-free because that is how I can function with Lyme disease and how I can still live a life despite my chronic illness. Not because I'm trying to outrun anyone else in this life.
So without further ado, I'd like to introduce the sugar-free Thumbprint Cookie! These cookies are completely sugar free, organic, and free of harmful additives and chemicals. They are made with whole wheat flour and they still melt in your mouth! They're also sweetened with Lakanto Monkfruit sweetener which is full of nutrients and approved for all kinds of healthy diets!
Sugar Free Thumbprint Cookies
*If you don't have a the powdered version of your Lakanto sweetener, you can take one cup of classic Lakanto sweetener and blend it in a blender on high until it is in powdered form.
**Make sure you use the right kind of flour, for if you only use bread flour your cookies will be dry and if you only use pastry flour your cookies will fall apart.
***You can use any kind of fruit preserves that you like. I used organic, sugar free, wild blueberry jam that I ordered from Thrive market.
Welcome to My Kitchen!
Food is one of the greatest forms of science, art, medicine, and sustenance all at the same time! It's what feeds our lives and pumps through our blood. It's what connects us and what gives us energy to fulfill our purpose. It is for that reason that I have a deep passion for discovering, cooking, and eating only the most nutrient dense foods. In my kitchen, we only use organic, whole ingredients that feed the body, as well as the mind and soul. My hope is to inspire healing through healthy AND delicious food that feeds not only our stomachs, but also our hunger for connection and quality of life.
