Tip of the Week

How do you deal with stress?

So many people try to relieve stress by only relaxing on the weekends and holidays when they are off of work for an extended period of time. This is not enough to reverse the damaging effects of stress. It must be relieved on a daily, or even hourly, basis to protect your body and mind.

Some ideas for quick and easy stress relief:

Deep Breathing - when anxiety, anger, or stress hit your heart pounds, you feel shaky, and you begin to over-react. Stop and take a long slow deep breath in through your nose and low slow exhale out through your mouth. Repeat 5 to 10 times. Relaxing your tongue against your teeth as you breathe provides an added benefit of calming and cooling the nervous system.

Ear Rubbing - when feeling nervous about an activity its hard to calm the mind and focus. Gently squeezing and rubbing the ear lobe can relieve tension and bring focus. Adding the sound "whoo-sah" while rubbing in circular motions can greatly increase the benefits.

Hand Clasp - when struggling to focus and remember everything that needs to be done anxiety pops up and makes it more difficult. Clasp hands together with fingers alternating. Squeeze hands together tightly, do not hurt yourself, and breathe slowly in and out and release. Repeat squeezing and breathing up to 5 times.

Recipe of the Week

HOMEMADE REAL FOOD MARSHMALLOWS 

Fluffy homemade marshmallows made without egg, corn syrup or refined sugars. Author: Simply Nourished Recipes  Serves: 48 marshmallows

INGREDIENTS

• 2 cups water, divided

• 5 Tablespoons unflavored gelatin (such as Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin)

• 1 cup honey

• 1 cup pure maple syrup

• 1 teaspoon vanilla

• ¼ teaspoon sea salt

• Coconut oil for greasing the pan

• Arrowroot or Tapioca starch for dusting (such as Bob's Red Mill)

INSTRUCTIONS

• Lightly grease a 9x13" glass baking dish with coconut oil or palm shortening then line with parchment paper lengthwise, leaving a little overlap on each end (you may have to trim your paper a bit to fit nicely) then grease the bottom of the pan again (this time on the paper) and line the pan going the opposite direction - again leaving a little overhang to use as a handle to turn cooled marshmallows out of the pan for cutting later on.

• Dust the pan lightly with arrowroot or tapioca starch/flour.

• Pour water into the bowl of a stand mixer with whip attachment (or into a large glass or metal bowl if using a hand mixer).

• Sprinkle gelatin over 1 cup water and allow to "bloom" for 5-10 minutes.

• In a medium saucepan set over medium-high heat, whisk together 1 cup water and the honey and maple syrup.

• Bring mixture to a boil, turn down heat slightly to keep syrup mixture from foaming up and boiling over. The lower the heat, the longer this will take so be attentive and ride the line between too much heat and too little.

• Allow the mixture to simmer rapidly until it reaches 240 degrees on a candy thermometer (soft-ball stage).

• Turn the mixer on to medium and slowly pour the hot sugar syrup into the bowl, being careful not to pour directly onto the beater or it will splatter all over the place. Be patient. Pouring too fast can cause the mixture to "break" when you try to spread it into pan.

• Once all of the syrup has been added, crank up the mixer to high and beat the 5-10 minutes or until the mixture is fluffy, white and nearly tripled in volume. When you dip a spoon into the mixture and pull it back out, the "peaks" formed should stay upright momentarily before collapsing onto themselves ("soft peak" stage).

• Add the vanilla and sea salt and give it another quick whirl in the mixer.

• Pour the fluffy marshmallow cream into the prepared pan and gently smooth using a rubber spatula or your hands (coated with a little coconut oil).

• Allow marshmallows to cool, uncovered and undisturbed for 6 hours or overnight. Use overhanging parchment paper to transfer marshmallow to a cutting board. Dust with arrowroot or tapioca starch and cut into 48 squares using a sharp knife. Dust cut sides with additional starch to prevent them from sticking together.

• Store in a covered container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.
