Not so nice collection of smushed miniatures… ㅠㅠ This is what happens if you be lazy and don’t bake them fast enough. :/
Hey guys!! :)
Today I will be talking about the well known, “oil pulling!” What exactly IS oil pulling?? It’s swishing oil in your mouth until all the bad bacteria out of your mouth. ^^ (To put it in a more simple way~) Read away!!~ ^^
***DISCLAIMER*** : I am not guaranteeing this will work for everyone! Please research oil pulling for yourself if you can’t find the information you need on this article. :)
My first thoughts on it was… Nonsense!!! I read a article 2 months ago that cavities could die out JUST by oil pulling! Of course. I was skeptical about it but then I decided to try it out… I used Sunflower Oil and it was DISGUSTING. I couldn’t stand the taste of it!
—MY CURRENT EXPERIENCE—
A few weeks later I grew a more larger cavity in the backside of my lower teeth and had a toothache so I decided to try out oil pulling again with Olive Oil.. The taste was way more endurable than Sunflower Oil! :) I been trying it out for four days including today. ^^ I asked my mother if there was any difference in my teeth and she said my teeth looked more cleaner and white!! :D I definitely do feel a difference in my mouth after oil pulling including whitening, less toothaches, and fresher breath. ^^
—MORE ABOUT OIL PULLING—
I researched a little bit more on oil pulling and I read that people who tried out oil pulling improved eyesight, had healthier and shiner hair, cavities gone, toothaches gone, no more jaw pain, etc! :O
Most people use Coconut Oil but it is hard like lard until you melt it in your mouth. ^^’ I would recommend using Olive Oil by my experience. :)
I recommend you yourself should try out oil pulling!! :) Also make sure to research more about it. ^^
******BASIC OIL PULLING METHOD/DIRECTIONS*****
I read that you could use any oil- Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Sunflower Oil, etc. (I use Olive Oil!) Every method is different and this method is taken from a article online. ^^
- Take 2 tsp of any oil and put it in your mouth.
- Melt it for at least 10 seconds if necessary.
- Swish for at least 5 minutes. For more better results, I would recommend (and others too) 15-20 minutes max. :)
Let me know your experiences or your thoughts on oil pulling. ^^
So today I wanted something sweet to eat and I ended up eating rice and seaweed soup… But then I thought of something brilliant and decided to make a steamed cake! But of course, my laziness never fails so I gave up on doing that. Then once again later I remembered that there is always a nice microwave mug cake! :D
RECIPE FOR MICROWAVE MUG CAKE
- 2 TBSP flour
- 1.5 TBSP sugar (I used brown sugar!)
- 2 TBSP milk
- 1/8 TSP salt
- 3/4 TBSP oil
- 1/4 TSP Vanilla Extract
- 4 TSP instant coffee powder or cocoa powder (OPTIONAL)
1.) Use a little bit of oil or a oil spray to grease your mug.
2.) Mix all the dry ingredients together then add the milk, oil, and vanilla extract. ***I added more milk because the batter seemed too dry***
3.) Pour the batter into the mug and microwave on high for 1 minute. If is not done, microwave on 15 seconds each time until done.
You can use melted chocolate/sprinkles/etc to decorate your mug cake. I used dark chocolate and peanut butter and it tasted so HEAVENLY. :D
I am so addicted to this mug cake… Probably the best recipe for mug cake! :)
Can you believe January is quickly arriving!? I can’t. My goodness, time flies… Happy New Year 2014! :)
Hey guys! :D
Today I have no photos – No update yesterday either! I felt like I should take a short break from all this blogging craziness, haha. ^^ There are GUESTS in our house right now. That’s right. I feel like I am stuck in the room with computer right in front of me… Summer break could get really boring, no kidding. :( Wish I had something productive to do! My eyes are starting to be hurt so goodbye for today! ;)
Have a lovely day, everyone. <3
I found some frozen fresh (not exactly, but if it is frozen when it is fresh, it’s technically fresh to me!) blueberries in the freezer so I decided to make some Blueberry Pancakes… It took practically forever to find a good recipe without any butter but I did find it. :)
A close up of the greasiness and deliciousness of these pancakes. <3
I am literally suprised at myself for blogging 3 times in a row! I think I am starting to adore blogging… :D That is some really great news for me because it was a chore for me to update this blog.
Here’s the recipe for these Butterless Blueberry Pancakes! ;)
= Butterless Blueberry Pancakes Recipe =
I N G R E D I E N T S
- 1 cup self rising flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1 tablespoon of sugar (I used brown sugar, but the truth is brown is sugar is white sugar dyed BROWN.)
- 2 eggs
- 1 lemon (To zest)
- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice (I put a little bit more because I love lemon juice.)
- 3/4 cup frozen or fresh blueberries
D I R E C T I O N S
1.) Mix the flour and baking powder together in a medium bowl.
2.) Put the sugar and lemon zest with the flour mixture and mix.
3.) Add the 2 eggs and lemon juice.
4.) Mix all the ingredients together until well mixed.
5.) Stir in your blueberries in the batter.
NOTE : You can make small or medium pancakes. I made small pancakes by using only a tablespoon of the batter.
Thank you for stopping by! <3 Hope you guys can try out the recipe~ ^^
Have a great day!
