Seems the topic on every body’s lips right now (or so my inbox tells me), to flu vax or not to flu vax?  Now, we all know this is a super controversial topic.  Before I go on, this blog is a place where I write to allow others to make informed decisions.  So, with this in mind any comments you choose to leave please do so openly with respect for all involved in the discussion.  Rude comments will be removed.

Now that is out of the way, I have to say, the marketing behind the vaccination this year astounds me.  It's on the radio, in the papers and everybody seems to be asking if it's a good idea – everybody seems to be telling us that it is and that we need to get onto it stat!  Now I'm mad for the proactive approach rather than the reactive – preventive medicine is certainly where it is at for me.  However sadly, there are a few missing points that we aren't necessarily considering when lining up for our flu jab.

Good Food Friday: Revamped hot cross buns

hot cross buns

So here's a re-vamped, re-run, re-shared re-cipe full of goodness that fits in with the bunny season!  My healthy version of Hot Cross Buns!  There's nothing to wait for.  Go to your supermarket and get your bake on kids, this is the winning recipe when it comes to buns this easter.

Nat's super hot cross buns

  •     1 1/2 cups (375ml) coconut milk
  •     2 tsp (7g/1 sachet) dried yeast
  •     1 tbs sugar
  •     60g of coconut butter, melted
  •     1/4 cup chia seeds
  •     1tbs superfood of your choice – I chose gubinge – this of course is optional
  •     1 egg, lightly whisked
  •     2 1/2 cups (675g) rice flour
  •     2 cups of coconut flour
  •     1tsb baking powder
  •     1 tsp salt
  •     3 tsp mixed spice
  •     1 cup currants
  •     1/3 cup (80ml) cold water
  •     1 egg beaten to glaze

Method

Combine the milk, yeast and 1 tbs of sugar in a small bowl. Set aside in a warm, draught-free place for 10 minutes or until frothy.

Combine the milk mixture, coconut butter and egg in a jug and whisk.  Combine 2 cups (600g) of rice flour and 2 cups of the coconut flour, baking powder, chia seeds, gubinge and salt in a bowl. Add the currants and stir.  Make a well in the centre. Pour in the milk mixture and with a wooden spoon stir until just combined, then use your hands to bring the dough together.

Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10-15 minutes or until elastic like. Place the dough in a bowl and cover with a damp tea towel. Place in a warm spot for 1 hour or until dough doubles in size.

Preheat oven to 200°C. Grease a square cake tin. Punch the dough down with your fist and again turn dough onto a lightly floured surface, kneading for 2-3 minutes or until dough is smooth and elastic. Divide dough into 16 even pieces shaping each portion into a ball. Arrange dough portions, side by side, in the prepared pan. Set aside in a warm, draught-free place for 30 minutes or until dough has risen 2cm.

Meanwhile, mix the remaining flour and water together in a small bowl until a smooth paste forms. Place in a small plastic bag and snip off the end. Pipe a continuous line down the centre of each row of buns, lengthways and widthways, to form crosses. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.

Reduce heat to 180°C and bake for a further 15 minutes or until golden and cooked through (buns are ready when they sound hollow when tapped on the base).

Whisk final egg. Brush over each bun and place back in oven for a few minutes to cook egg.  Once glossy and set, remove from oven, place on a wire rack and when possible turn onto rack to cool.  Serve warm with butter, or toasted.

*these will rise to a lesser degree than regular hot cross buns

Pre Period spotting – what it really means.

Recently I was asked to write about pre period spotting and what was the deal there.  It's so important for us to understand that like all symptoms, it is just a gentle nudge from our bodies to look deeper into the underlying issue and spotting at any time of the cycle is no different.  

There are several reasons we might see spotting pre period.  The most common reason I see in the clinic is a decline of progesterone before menstruation.  In a perfect scenario, progesterone won't dip until the onset of the period, however what we all should know is that nobody is perfect – in fact, imperfect is the new perfect!  What's more, the information I share with you today is simply a guide.  We must then go away with it and apply it to our own unique situation to really gain answers and the truth about ourselves.
