Note: Whole Wheat Flour

Whether it’s whole wheat or white whole wheat flour, you are going to have to be careful while using it when baking.


This flour is tricky and sticky. If you are making a batter, ensure that you DO NOT OVERMIX. The best way to make certain you don’t is to only mix until you can’t see any loose flour. If its all blended, STOP. I avoid using a hand or stand mixer. Use that “I LIFT” arm strength and mix it by hand.

What will overmixing do?

If you overmix your batter, whatever is being made will be edible…. it just won’t be that good. The product will be stiff and without fluffiness. It may be too dense, especially in the case of bread.

Buy Organic Citrus!

It’s usually unclear when it’s okay to buy inorganic vs. organic. EVERY TIME you use citrus zest in a recipe though, buy organic.

Zest is when you grate the peel and add it into your meal. It’s a good idea to ensure that peel is as clean as possible, especially from pesticides and other toxins that could have been used to farm it. Buying organic citrus ensures this won’t be of issue for you!

If you can’t figure out what to eat for breakfast, people usually keep bananas to grab fast. Always bring a banana to a party, but don’t eat it as a backup meal. Bananas on their own leave me bloated and forever hungry. I recommend always having a grapefruit at hand. Half a grapefruit with yogurt is the perfect quick and healthy breakfast you may have never thought of.
