1/2 cup coconut flour (sifted)
3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup coconut palm sugar (or any natural sweetener)
1/4 cup nut butter of choice (optional)
- Line a small baking tray with baking paper and set aside.
- In a mixing bowl, combine your coconut flour and coconut palm sugar and mix well.
- Add your applesauce and nut butter (if using it) and mix until a very thick batter is formed.
- Transfer the batter to the lined baking tray, top with cinnamon and refrigerate for an hour or so, until it has firmed up slightly.
- Cut into brownie-sized pieces and enjoy.
Depending on the brand of coconut flour, you may need more applesauce. Keep adding more in until a thick batter is formed- Firm but still quite moist. Brownies are best kept refrigerated and can be frozen.
It can be difficult to be a caregiver and manage multiple or complex medications for a loved one. It is important to ensure medications are taken appropriately to help maintain good health. A visiting pharmacist provides personal support with regular medication delivery and home consultations. The pharmacist reviews a client’s prescription drugs and over the counter medications to advise if there are any drug interactions and makes adjustments as necessary. This level of support can reduce emergency room visits and hospital stays and results in strong, trusting relationships between clients, caregivers and pharmacists. The visiting pharmacist also provides seamless care for hospital discharge patients and works closely with other health professionals to deliver a high level of care to the client. Care is tailored to specific individual needs such as assisting with blood pressure readings, adding medications as needed to adherence packaging and making changes in an timely manner.

Castor oil is an age old beauty treatment that has been kept in the dark, until now. This oil can be used on the scalp to help prevent and cure hair loss and it is effective at this for several reasons. It’s antibacterial and anti-fungal properties make it beneficial against follliculitus, dandruff and scalp infections and its ricinoleic acid content helps increase circulation to the scalp and improve hair growth. Ricinoleic acid is also said to help balance your natural pH which can also help replenish the scalp’s natural oils and undo some of the damage of harsh chemical hair products. The antioxidants in castor oil also support the keratin in hair and help make it stronger, smoother and less frizzy. Remember that castor oil is quite thick, and should be diluted with another oil, such as coconut oil in a 3:1 ratio. Massage into your scalp and hair, leave on for several minutes, and rinse!
Hormones are your body’s chemical messengers. They travel in your bloodstream to tissues and organs. They work slowly, over time, and affect many different processes, including: Growth and development, Metabolism, Reproduction and Mood. If you have symptoms like fatigue, skin issues, weight gain, sleep problems, PMS, endometriosis, infertility or other issues, chances are you have a hormonal imbalance! Here are some tips to help balance you out:
1) Avoid polyunsaturated fats. Choose fats like coconut oil, olive oil and real butter.
2) Limit caffeine. This can be hard for some, but try to slowly replace your coffee with beneficial herbal tea.
3) Avoid toxins. This, again, can be a challenge as toxins are found in many household items. When cooking, using glass or non-coated metal pans and avoid plastics!
4) Sleep! This can singlehandedly improve hormones and is even linked to longer life, less chance of disease and optimizing weight.
Cilantro, also known as Coriander or Chinese parsley, is one of the most effective natural detoxifying remedies for removing heavy metals and other harmful toxins from your body. It is particularly great for removing mercury. The chemical compounds in cilantro bind to toxic metals and loosen them from the tissue. Heavy metals have been connected with serious health problems, such as heart disease, kidney disease, lung disease, emotional problems and cancer. Cilantro itself is a great source of healthy minerals, like potassium, manganese, calcium, magnesium and iron. It also has awesome amounts of vitamin K and A. It has been shown to be an effective antifungal, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, which all can help you detox your system and return to balance.
There is no doubt the report from the World Health Organization classifying numerous meat products as carcinogenic is stirring up a response in many of us. Although there has been lots of evidence to suggest a diet including meat can be detrimental to not only our health but also to that of the planet, many people find it difficult to adopt a more plant-based diet. Food is not just what we put in our bodies, it is fuel for daily activities, as well as tastes, flavours, and smells associated with memories. Making dietary changes can be challenging. You will have habits you need to break, and new cooking skills and information you need to learn. Having someone to be accountable to and who will provide knowledge and direction along the way is helpful in making successful dietary changes -this is where a health coach can be an invaluable resource.
