What’s Your Rock Bottom?

What’s Your Rock Bottom?

Quote of the Month
“I think I’ve definitely had my rock bottom and I think that was probably right before I went into treatment where I said, ‘I definitely need help.'” – Demi Lovato
What’s Your Rock Bottom?
So what do we mean when we say rock bottom?  Well, according to wikipedia, it’s “the culmination of a descent to a place where a person has nothing left to lose in terms of possessions, status,wealth and perhaps even shelter, food and warmth as a result of self-destructive behaviour”.  For me, it’s the point someone reaches when they’re finally ready to take control of their health andlife.  Some people never get there OR when they do, it’s often too late.  Have you ever heard the definition of insanity… “doing the same thing over and over, yet expecting different results”.  In other words, how can you get better if you don’t make any changes?
What’s your rock bottom?  Is it when you’re tired of being tired all the time?  Is it when you’ve gained too much weight?  Is it when you’re bombarded with too many allergies?  Is it when you develop a heart condition or digestive disorder?  Is it when your child dies of cancer?  Is it when you’re diagnosed with cancer?  When do you put yourself first and decide you’re WORTH IT?! When are you ready to make a real lifestyle change?  When do you finally stop leaving your health in another person’s hands?  Only you can heal you!  As practitioners, we can only help to facilitate and guide you, we do not cure.  Don’t give up control… take control…
On a lighter note, here’s an awesome Valentines Day recipe…dairy free and grain free!  It looks long, but it’s really not.
Salted Caramel Chocolate Cupcakes (as taken from Diana Keuilian)
Serves: 24 small or 12 regular
For the Chocolate Cupcakes
1¼ cups blanched almond flour
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 Tablespoons pure maple syrup, grade B
¼ teaspoon almond extract
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
2 eggs at room temperature, white and yolks separated
For the Caramel
½ cup coconut sugar
3 Tablespoons coconut milk, canned and full fat
2 Tablespoons coconut oil
pinch of sea salt
1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon baking soda
For the Chocolate Cupcakes
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease a mini muffin tin with coconut oil, or line with paper liners.
Combine the dry ingredients in a medium bowl. In another medium bowl combine the wet ingredients, except the egg whites.
Mix the wet with the dry and set aside.
Beat the egg whites until firm peaks form. Gently fold the egg whites into the batter.
Equally distribute the batter between 24 mini muffin molds (or 12 regular). Smooth out the tops of each cupcake. Bake for 12 minutes (20-25 min for regular), until the tops are fully set.
For the Caramel
In a skillet over medium heat, mix the coconut sugar, milk, oil, salt and vanilla. Once the mixture begins to boil, reduce the heat to low and continue to cook, stirring often for 5 minutes.
Remove the skillet from heat and whisk in the baking soda. The mixture will turn a lighter color and will become creamy. Return to low heat and cook, mixing often, for 2 minutes.
Remove the caramel from heat and allow to cool and thicken for 5 minutes.
Garnish each cupcake with a drizzle of caramel and a generous sprinkle of sea salt. Enjoy!
