If you can handle the taste of jalapenos, you can consider yourself lucky, as they are apparently a real superfood. The active ingredient in these little green peppers, capsaicin, is the power you need to fight off numerous health issues. Capsaicin is the same ingredient used in personal defense pepper spray, and it turns out […]

It’s already meant for you. You have to start accepting this as your truth. Things are getting very clear for you. You are starting to really see that you’re meant for greatness. You might have been getting so many signs and seeing how everything is all connected. Each moment you’re being reminded of who you truly are and what vast potential you already have. It starts off by wanting better for yourself. Then you make the inner changes by setting your intentions. Even doing that is you already knowing what you have access to. This is your true power you were already born with. You’re experiencing so many synchronicities, alignments, and signs that truly show you how powerful your thoughts are. This initially comes off as out of this world or just a feeling of joy that fills your heart and body.
You can’t really explain it all to anyone because you’re the one fully experiencing it in real time all the time. Sometimes it makes you speechless and puts you in a state of deep gratitude for how precious and miraculous life truly is. Day by day as you start to evolve, invest in yourself, and be present enough to recognize yourself, you will open your heart and mind further to allow blessings and many possibilities to happen for you. A new you will emerge. New being a state of awareness which you always had but recognized. It’s all a reminder of what you already know. Start feeling good right now about this. Start smiling and thinking of the possibilities. Even a single thought starts changing everything for you. Don’t doubt anything right now. Just feel, allow, and welcome your blessings. Trust yourself. Feel everything out. Your feelings will guide you. Trust your intuition and be ready for your wildest dreams to manifest.
The Taal Volcano has erupted Sunday Morning and the cause is thought to be hydro-thermal in nature. In Batangas, an interview on Dobol B sa News TV states that the phreatic eruption was said to be recorded at around 11am. Three hours later a much stronger explosion was recorded, and more than one kilometer of ash was spewed into the sky.
Alert Level 1 didn’t last long, as officials quickly made the decision to raise the alert level to Level 2. This simply means that there will be a probability of a magmatic intrusion which could possibly lead to an eruption.
Three earthquakes were recorded at 7:35am, 10:43am, and 14:00pm Philippines Time Zone.
These cookies have real lemon slices on top for an extra strong flavor. I pre-baked the slices a little before placing them on the cookie to bake together so that the lemon flavor is a little bit more concentrated, but when you bite into each cookie you’ll still get a burst of fresh citrus goodness.
The effect is almost as though the cookies are filled with some zesty lemon cream. Some of the juice from the lemon slices also seeps into the cookie itself, giving it a delicious lemon almond flavor.
The trick is to get the lemon slices just thick enough to not get burned during baking — so keep an eye out as they’re pre-baking, as you might want to take them out sooner if need be (or bake at a lower temperature all together, as some ovens bake stronger than others).
You can experiment a little with your oven settings and you can slice the lemons thicker or thinner to your liking (thicker means juicier and stronger in flavor, thinner means more delicate but also more likely to burn a little around the edges). Optimal thickness is around an eighth of an inch.
But don’t sweat it if there’s a tiny bit of browning happening anyways (as you can see in the cookie below around the edges) — they’ll still be delicious!
Also, note that I used a nut butter that’s a mix of almond and hazelnut butter (from Nuts to You Nut Butter) because that’s what I had on hand. A pure almond butter would work great here too on its own, but I did enjoy the light depth the hazelnuts added. So if you can find an almond hazelnut mix, go for it. If not, plain almond butter will do just fine.
LEMON SLICES 1 to 1 ½ small fresh lemons, washed
ALMOND COOKIES ½ cup white rice flour 3 tbsp almond meal 3 tbsp maple syrup 2 tbsp creamy natural almond hazelnut butter (or just almond butter) 1 tsp almond extract ⅛ tsp salt
OPTIONAL TOPPING a tbsp of coconut milk powder for dusting*
Pre-heat oven to 375F. Line a small cookie sheet with parchment paper. Slice lemon(s) into rings about an ⅛” thick (you’ll need 8 good looking rings). Carefully pick out any seeds. Lay each ring flat on the prepared cookie tray and bake for approx. 15 mins. Keep an eye out to make sure the lemon slices don’t burn (as they’ll later cook even further), especially as some ovens can bake stronger than others. At this stage you basically just want to pre-cook and dehydrate them a little. Note that the thinner you slice the lemons the quicker they’ll bake, the thicker you slice them the juicier and more prominent their flavor will be). Once ready, remove the lemon slices from the oven and set aside to cool a little.
While the lemons are baking, prepare the cookies by processing all cookie ingredients in a food processor (I used the small bowl of mine) until the mixture sticks together and is at the beginning stages of forming a ball.** Gather all this dough up (I used a spoon to scoop it out of the processor) and form into a ball with your hands. Then divide this ball into 2, then divide each half into 2, then divide each quarter into 2, so that you’re left with 8 equal pieces of dough.
Line a small cookie sheet with parchment paper. Roll each piece of dough into a ball, then flatten into a disk. Place on the cookie sheet, spreading them half an inch apart. Once the lemon slices are ready, place a slice over the center of each cookie and press down to flatten the cookie further and embed the lemon slices in a little.
Bake the cookies for approximately 12 minutes until nicely golden (again, keep an eye to make sure the lemon slices don’t burn, if need be, lower the oven temperature a little if the lemon slices are thin and are browning too fast). Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack.
Optional: once cool, dust the cookies lightly with some coconut milk powder. Enjoy!
Be consistent right now. Keep the visualizations going. Keep the affirmations going. Keep being positive about everything. Every moment counts. Don’t judge yourself or even judge the timing of everything. Enter a state of gratitude, celebration, and completion of your manifestations. Everything is already yours. What you think about belongs to you. What you feel is making its way towards you. What you want wants you. What you give your energy to grows and amplifies in your awareness. Stay focused on purpose. Let what goes, go. Let what comes, enter. Just keep speaking, thinking, and feeling power over your life. Nothing is complicated when you learn to just breathe, believe, and trust that everything is already happening for you. You just need to keep shinning from within and being patient with yourself. Be loving to yourself. You are very special and you being here right now shows that your life means so much more than what you can understand sometimes. Start noticing the beauty about existence. The small things like your aliveness and your energy. Your mind. Your abilities. The billion things happening every second for you that doesn’t require your conscious attention. You are being supported so feel light today. Feel warmth and love. Feel energized to be your greatest through recognizing it and allowing it now. Keep going.
Keep giving energy to your dreams! Take care of yourself! You’re building up great momentum! Results are coming in at a high speed! You have so many great things coming your way! You are so blessed! Don’t give up that thought of things working out for you. They actually are. Doubt and fear is not allowed in your space. You are only going upwards! One day you’ll look back and be THANKFUL that you kept pushing forward. You’ll be thankful that you kept growing. Reaching that place is making the choice today to keep going no matter what kind of adversities or challenges you face. Don’t let your current situation make you feel hopeless. Remember that one time you were at a low point, and you made it through? Well, you can do it again! Don’t get caught up in this moment and forget your strength. The reason why we have all these experiences, is not only to get the lessons, but to become stronger. We’re made to survive, adapt, change, and transform ourselves. Don’t hold on to things longer than their stay. Be open to newness, even if it doesn’t make sense at the moment.
Most of our pain comes from fear of change, because we want what’s familiar. We have difficulties in letting go, because we want to force everything to be the same. The beautiful thing about life is that the moment we let go of what weighs heavy on us, we find new inspiration to continue on. We get a second chance. The best way to get out of a negative cycle is to start working on your thoughts, before you work on the outside. Listen the predominate thoughts you have; that will give you insight to what you’ve been attracting. Shift your thoughts to the outcome you want. Be more patient with yourself. Always know and believe that you will be okay. That everything is just fine. You’ve survived before, you’ll survive again.
