Not so nice collection of smushed miniatures… ㅠㅠ This is what happens if you be lazy and don’t bake them fast enough.
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!!😀 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!😀
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.😀
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!
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.❤
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.❤
I am literally suprised at myself for blogging 3 times in a row! I think I am starting to adore blogging…😀 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.
