Quinoa Pancakes with my own MockMill


As many of you know I was recently diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease. After the diagnosis I made it my goal to find as many natural ways to help me heal, my illness doesn’t have a cure and the idea of having to take medication for the rest of my life was a scary scary thought. So that’s when my gluten free journey began.

As an avid baker, it was super hard to give up my baked goods, all the cupcakes, cakes and just the fun baking and creating used to bring to my life. I tried out many alternatives, but goodness some were just gross! It was difficult to find compliant ingredients. When I finally found a few flours I liked, it seriously got pricey. After so many years paying very little for flour (because conventional flour is very cheap). I really wanted to mill my own grains but all the mills I found were super pricey and honestly I just don’t have the counter space, so when I was asked to review the Mockmill from Wolfgang Mock I was thrilled!


I decided to play around with rice, amaranth and even tigernuts! Stay tuned for my trials with milling tigernuts! Then I decided to use my family’s favorite protein packed grain: QUINOA! I wanted to make sure I started with something easy so by the request of my bit gang we tried pancakes. Here’s the modified recipe because working with freshly ground grains it’s a bit different.


AIP Gluten Free Quinoa Pancakes

Ingredients:

2 cups quinoa flour
2 tbsp. coconut sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 cups coconut milk
2 tbsp. coconut oil, plus more for cooking
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 gelatin eggs

1. In a bowl, whisk together quinoa flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon.
2. In another bowl, whisk together coconut milk, coconut oil, vanilla, and gelatin eggs until well-combined.
3. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until combined.
4. Heat an oiled, skillet over medium heat. Add batter to skillet in 1/4 cup scoops, and cook until bubbles just begin to form.
5. Flip and cook the other side for 1-2 minutes.
6. Serve with syrup and top with your favorite fruit.

Everyone LOVED them! They were super delicious! And honestly you can’t beat freshly ground delicious grains. And the Mockmill did an outstanding job. I was amazed by how fine the quinoa was and how easy it was to do it. If you love to bake gluten free or not you NEED to get yourself a Mockmill.

The MockMill uses STONES to grind the grains and has little dots  on the side to choose how fine you want to grin. The attachment fits ALL KitchenAid mixers, uses ceramic grinding stones and comes with a 2 year manufacturer’s warranty.


Amazon has the Mockmill for $199, which is already an awesome deal but since I am working with Mockmill for this campaign they have an AWESOME deal that you absolutely NEED to get! They have the packages below which are normally priced at $259 but are now on SALE for ONLY $179 with my special PROMO code!! Just use code CREATIVEMELIMOCK at checkout on the payment page to get that $80 discount (expires August 31, 2016). Go HERE to get yours. DON’T forget the promo code or you won’t get the sale price.

Buddha’s Brew: Best kombucha EVER! 


After I got diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis I began a journey of healthy eating, food is such a huge part of our lives and it truly affects us in many ways.

I started to follow AIP (autoimmune paleo/protocol) and the results were amazing! I lost weigh and started feeling like myself again, but there was still something missing. A friend recommended probiotics and told me I need to heal my gut too. I was already taking so many supplements and pills I didn’t want another one so I turned to fermented foods. It took some time to get used to it but that’s when my love affair with kombucha began.


Although I loved kombucha I needed to drink quite a bit to get the probiotics I needed. Until I found Buddha’s Brew! Omg life changed! It’s not only delicious but each 16 oz bottle has 19 billion probiotics, 19 BILLION! And it comes in some insanely delicious flavors, my two favorite are peach mint and pineapple greens.


Here’s a bit more about them:

“Buddha’s Brew Kombucha was born from the farmer’s markets of Austin, Texas. What began as a simple curiosity, grew to selling at the Sunset Valley farmers market. Seeing the increasing demand and wanting to satisfy more craving thirsts, Kimberly teamed up with John-Paxton to begin a business. A passion for meditation and spiritual practice along with Kombucha’s tendency to produce calm whole-body energy led to the name, Buddha’s Brew. A scenic warehouse on the greenbelt was selected in South Austin and after a year of working with the city learning to be contractor, a commercial brewery was born.

Today, we still brew out of our original location. We continually strive to find ways to be more efficient with our humble space and have added a few gardens on the property for good measure. Presently Buddha’s Brew employs around 20+ Kombucha fanatics with a desire to bring our delicious and alive Kombucha to Austin, Tx and beyond.”

Simple Ingredients – Powerful Kombucha. They brew over 15 Flavors in 16oz jars with rotating seasonal(s) in mason jars. Their Flavors are also available in 67oz Growler Jugs & 5 Gallon Kegs.

You can find Buddha’s Brew at several several stores and farmers markets in Austin and surrounding areas, for a list of places go HERE.


We’ve partnered with Buddha’s Brew to giveaway, two lucky Creative Meli readers will win a super cool t-shirt! Just enter HERE

A girl and her giant: A BFG Review

the_bfg

My family and I had the chance to attend the screening of The BFG, and let me tell you…I was worried, book adaptations can be pretty tricky specially the meaningful ones, those that pull the strings of your heart and take you to another time in your life. To me books and music are such important parts of my life, each chapter of my life has it’s own soundtrack and a book to go with it.

maxresdefault

The BFG is one of those, so many quotes bring me to that warm and fuzzy place where my overactive imagination can rejoice and my wildest dreams are obtainable.

“The witching hour, somebody had once whispered to her, was a special moment in the middle of the night when every child and every grown-up was in a deep deep sleep, and all the dark things came out from hiding and had the world all to themselves.”
― Roald Dahl, The BFG

“Meanings is not important, said the BFG. I cannot be right all the time. Quite often I is left instead of right.” ― Roald Dahl, The BFG

thumbnail_24205

Still to this day, I get the heebie-jeebies when I so happen to wake up in the middle of the night at 3 a.m. Lol, silly me….

And my fascination for Dahl’s little jewel became even more meaningful when my 10 year old read it at school. Now my baby can be my reading partner, someone I can discuss some of the books that helped shape the woman I am today.

But the more I heard about the film, the more excited I got. Until the day we went to watch Finding Dory and watched the preview of The BFG, in my awe, I didn’t realized until it was over that tears were running down my cheek. Yes, I’m a weirdo that apparently even cries with previews.

2016-07-01-1467401264-2789818-TheBFG.f

So when we got invited to the screening I was over the moon, oh and the kids too! 😉 The BFG although with much smaller ears, was beautiful! His expressions, the way he spoke, everything about him reminded me of the little girl  who wished she was plucked away from her bed by a Big Friendly Giant.

The special and digital effects are exquisite, when we see The BFG “at work” collecting dreams, the willow and the “dreams” floating around are astonishing. It was truly magical, and the genius of Spielberg comes through beautifully.

Disney-The-BFG

For any of you concerned they might not do Roald Dahl’s work justice, rest assured that you’ll leave the theater feeling content and maybe slightly teary if you’re anything like me. Like most great movies, The BFG has a good amount of laughter, adventure, heartfelt moments, all combined with amazing effects and beautiful imagery.

Have you watched it? What did you think? And if you haven’t….. what are you waiting for?
