My favorite Chocolate Cake Every once in a while you have to indulge!  Just try to use the best ingredients, real chocolate and enjoy!     Forbes Riley Chocolate Cake Prep time 10 mins Cook Time 35 mins Ingredients butter and flour for coating and dusting the cake pan 3 cups all-purpose flour 3 cups granulated sugar 1½ cups unsweetened cocoa powder 1 tablespoon baking soda 1½ teaspoons baking powder 1½ teaspoons salt 4 large eggs 1½ cups buttermilk 1½ cups warm water ½ cup vegetable oil 2 teaspoons vanilla extract Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter three 9-inch cake rounds. Dust with flour and tap out the excess. (see cooking lesson below) Mix together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a stand mixer using a low speed until combined. Add eggs, buttermilk, warm water, oil, and vanilla. Beat on a medium speed until smooth. This should take just a couple of minutes. Divide batter among the three pans. I found that it took just over 3 cups of the batter to divide it evenly. Bake for 30-35 minutes until the cake meets the toothpick test (stick a toothpick in and it comes out clean). [...]

People always ask me, 'How do you get kids to eat healthy?" The answer is simple - feed them healthy - may sound easy but before most children are 2 years old they have been inundated with sugar, birthday cake, candy, high fructose corn syrup, cereals, ice cream and the list goes on... food that if you truly realized how bad it was - you wouldn't feed to someone who hated - but now you are noticing you're feeding it your most precious loved ones -- they are getting desensitized to taste, further away from raw, natural flavors and the heading towards early diabetes, obesity and a host of health problems. If its true you ARE WHAT YOU EAT - then lets start with natural, nutrition rich ingredients to help build our young ones as strong and healthy as possible yes?   replace sugar drinks with fresh natural juices (adding in veggies) offer them water whenever possible involve them in the cook process in the kitchen talk about what food really is and why we eat - and if you don't know, lets get educated!

A pineAPPLE a day!

2017-08-12T15:51:47+00:00 Monday, May 2, 2016|Tags: , , , |

Doctors talk about an apple a day well - good news for Hawaii - Pineapples are IDEAL for Weight Loss! 1. Fresh, raw pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain that aids digestion by breaking down protein in the digestive tract. This promotes muscle strength and elasticity, and we know that muscle burns more calories than fat! 2. The bromelain enzyme contains potassium, so it actually neutralizes sodium, arginine and some acids. This helps eliminate water from your body, flushing fat out with it...making it a natural diuretic. It even drains adipose tissue, thus being a treatment for cellulite. 3. Pineapple is also anti-inflammatory which helps solve many stomach and intestinal problems. 4. Pineapple contains no fat, and is a low calorie, low energy density fruit which means more food for less calories. Why not eat fresh pineapple instead of having a sugary dessert?! (1 serving = app. 1⁄2 cup = about 40 calories) 5. The high fiber content in pineapples makes you feel full (causing you to stop eating) and helps keep your bowels consistent. 6. Pineapple is 87% water which helps you feel full and increases your water intake, both of which are good for weight loss. 7. [...]
