0 Comments

Do you know the health benefits of blueberries?

  • They help prevent infections in the urinary tract
  • They help prevent macular degeneration
  • The antioxidants help to reduce your chance of getting heart disease and cancer

Blueberries are grown in 35 states in the US, 90% of all the blueberries in the world are grown and produced in the US. They have been used in soups, stews, and more for centuries. A key to ripe old age and great for skin; out of 40 different fruits, juices, and vegetables, the blueberry comes in with the highest antioxidant level.

Here is a delicious recipe for Blueberry Scones:

Recipe Ingredients

    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1⁄3 cup plus 2 Tbsp sugar
    • 1 Tbsp baking powder
    • 1 1⁄2 tsp grated lemon zest
    • 1⁄4 tsp each ground cardamom and salt
    • 6 Tbsp cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
    • 1 1⁄2 cups blueberries
    • 3⁄4 cup plus 1 Tbsp heavy cream
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1⁄4 tsp almond or vanilla extract

Recipe Preparation

      • Line two small baking sheets with parchment paper. In large bowl, whisk flour, 1⁄3 cup sugar, the baking powder, zest, cardamom and salt until combined. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Gently fold in blueberries.

        2. In 2-cup glass measure, whisk 3⁄4 cup cream, eggs and extract until blended; slowly stir into dry ingredients just until a wet dough comes together. Divide in half.

        3. With floured hands, transfer dough to each prepared baking sheet. Pat each into a 6 1⁄4-in. round, a scant 1 in. thick. With floured knife, cut each round into 8 wedges. Refrigerate 30 minutes.

        4. Heat oven to 375°F. Brush dough with remaining 1 Tbsp cream and sprinkle with remaining 2 Tbsp sugar. Bake 24 minutes, or until scones are golden

Happy National Blueberry Month!

Greatness Would NOT Attend

0 Comments

Pity parties are a complete waste of time and energy. They are draining and cause you to lose perspective, which leads to over-reaction and more energy being wasted. You are completely focused on you and how you’ve been hurt – a tornado of negativity and pain engulfing you, sucking the motivation out of you.

Greatness wouldn’t rvsp to such a party, Greatness is busy with no idle time on his/her hands. Greatness isn’t self-focused or overly concerned about fair treatment. Greatness is staying in the race and focused on whatever the task of the day, moment, or second….most likely even multi-tasking and juggling. Greatness is enthusiastic about life no matter what the circumstances.

So you choose, pity party or greatness?

Create Abundance

Love, money, success, happiness, whatever. Buying into the belief of "lacking" or "there is not enough" will only hinder you in this infinite universe!

Thought is energy, everything in the universe is energy giving off vibrations. Thoughts are like magnets that attract energy of the same vibration…it’s the Universal Law of Attraction.

You are vibrating at lower frequencies when you are in:

  • expectation
  • judgment
  • rejection
  • blame
  • sorrow
  • hate

You are vibrating at higher frequencies when you are:

  • responding from compassion
  • observing
  • accepting
  • loving
  • contributing

When you think about all that you have and not what you are lacking, you will truly become abundant.
