Snow Cream

In North Texas we usually don’t get much snow.  We usually get ice which is no fun!  Today we got tons of good, powder snow.

We decide to try and make Snow Ice Cream.  We set a large bowl out on the patio table and let snow accumulate.  After the bowl was full, we brought it in.  We made several different flavors.

Why I choose to use Young Living Einkorn Mix…

Ingredients: Whole grain einkorn flour (Triticum monococcum), Brown rice flour, Amaranth flour, Tapioca flour, Sorghum flour (Sorghum bicolor), Dhokla flour (Indian flour made from chickpeas)

Flours now days are so processed and altered that they are no longer good for us.  Young Living is growing the very best Einkorn Wheat and I have loved baking with this mix.

EINKORN Crepes

Have you purchased the Einkorn Pancake and Waffle Mix yet?  I got it at Young Living Convention and have been excited to experiment with it.  On the side of the box is a crepe recipe.  I have never made crepes, but I love them, so I decided to give it a try.  If it is your first time as well, my tip to you is double your recipe.  It takes a couple tries to get it right. (Oh, and the syrup comes out fast!)

DESCRIPTION (back of box):  Gary’s True Grit Einkorn Pancake and waffle mix combines ancient einkorn wheat and other healthful grains with a special blend of ground legumes, added for a concentrated source of protein and fiber, making this a nutritious and tasty meal that will be enjoyed by the entire family.

Einkorn is the original “staff-of-life” grain, known as the oldest variety of wheat, which dates back to the beginning of time.  Einkorn’s natural genetic code and low gluten levels make it a superior choice because of its compatibility with the human body when compared to the modern , hybrid wheat of today.

Einkorn wheat is easier to digest, so nutrients are better absorbed, thus promoting the proper functions of the digestive system.

Today, Young Living is helping to bring einkorn wheat back to its rightful prominence in the world.

Gary’s True Grit Mix has 0.53% gluten content
