Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns

Summertime is a time for family barbecues!  And neighborhood barbecues.  So when you are eating healthy what do you do for your buns?  Lettuce?  That is what we do all too often.

I LOVE bread!  I feel like when I miss out on the bun my meal is not as “hearty”.  So. . . now you can make your own!

Whole Wheat Blender Pancakes

Before I started eating healthy I only made pancakes from the prepackaged mixes.   I have now learned that homemade is not much more work and taste so much better!

The thing I like about these pancakes is everything goes in you blender and there are only a few ingredients.

Strawberry Freezer Jam with Honey

August and September are a great time to make jam.  If you have a garden, your strawberries are ripe and ready to eat.  Or you can go to a farmers market or even the grocery store.

I LOVE freezer jam!  It tastes so yummy!  And the jam will stay good in your freezer for a YEAR!  Or you can store it in your fridge for a week.

Benefits of Raw Honey

Dr. Ron Fessenden, M.D., M.P.H says the average American consumes more than 150 pounds of refined sugar, plus an additional 62 pounds of high fructose corn syrup every year!  On average in the U.S. 1.3 pounds of honey are consumed per year.  This should be the other way around.

If my recipes call for a sweetener I use raw honey.  If I can not use honey instead of sugar then I don’t make it.  It is the very best sweetener out there.  There are so many health benefits from honey.

Honey has vitamins, trace enzymes, amino acids, and minerals like calcium, iron, sodium chlorine, magnesium, phosphate, and potassium.

Honey Whole Wheat Bread

I use to have a bread machine a long, long time ago.  I have not used one in years because to me it is easier to make several loaves of bread and freeze the extra loaves.  Some people prefer to make bread in the bread machine because it is quick and you always have fresh bread.
