Treats for the Lactose Intolerant

Are you a vegan? or have an allergy to cow's milk?

I have the allergy plus diabetes so if I want a sweet treat I have to be very careful what I eat and sometimes it is really hard to find something healthy and tasty.

For the record, I have not made any of these yet but they are definitely on my to-do list! First, though I have to get some of the ingredients like cacao and secondly, I need to stop eating all of my bananas before I can make something with them. The three recipe's that are on my todo list also happens to be the closest to chocolate that I'm ever going to be again.

I love ice cream but it is permanently on the NO list because 1) it is how I started to gain weight in the first place & 2) it is made with lots of sugar and cream

Did you know that bananas can be substituted for cream in a lot of recipes? I didn't until last year when I made my first batch of banana-based Ice cream. (I was going to link back to that but I guess I didn't take any photos. I will have to do better than that this year).

Double Chocolate Nice-Cream
Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Tart with Fresh Strawberries
Oreo cake
Yes, the oreo cake is sugar-free, milk-free and grain-free making it three times as good as any other treat recipe! You can find other items on Healthline that are Lactose-free and a few of them are also sugar-free so check out the article

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't. If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time. Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a  fear  of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic  fears  the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public. Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment:

My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle Day is celebrated by fans of the musical  My Fair Lady , a musical based off of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play  Pygmalion . In the musical, Eliza Doolittle is a  Cockney  flower girl who wants to learn to speak properly. At the time the story takes place, proper speech was a symbol of upward mobility and education. Eliza meets Professor Henry Higgins in  Covent Garden  and he agrees to give her  elocution  lessons. Higgins believes he can transform her from someone who uses words like "ain't" to someone who can fit in with London's elite. In the musical, Eliza dreams of meeting the king. She sings a song, "Just You Wait," to share her thoughts. It is in the song that the date for Eliza Doolittle Day comes from: One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim; Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim! One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing, I want all of England your praises to sing. Next week on the twentieth of M

Emotional Intelligence - What it is?

 F or those unfamiliar, emotional intelligence is a self-governing initiative to make healthy assessments about how our minds influence quality   behaviour . Such assessments help us to better understand our minds and reduce emotions harmful, yet natural effect on our thoughts and   behaviour . Like the sensory systems, the emotional coping mechanisms you have are not good or bad mostly they just need retuning or at least mine does. Over the next 4 weeks, I'll be looking into each section of Emotional Intelligence and sharing what I find with you. Self-Awareness: The core of Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness. Self-awareness is comprised of three competencies; emotional self-awareness, where you are able to read and understand your emotions as well as recognise their impact on work performance and relationships; accurate self-assessment, where you are able to give a realistic evaluation of your strengths and limitations; self-confidence, where you have a positive and strong s
