Sunday Scrolls: May Edition

By Kaylea

May 5, 2024 | Blog, Sunday Scrolls

Today’s Scrolls has been a delight to put together for us: a blueberry muffin (made without sugar and yet positively decadent), meals, movement and mindset motivators to improve health span, and a book I’ve been waiting years to share with you! Come on in, it’s a gorgeous spring scrolling day 🌸:

Meals

These blueberry muffins are my favorite flavor creation that has come out of our new kitchen. They are gluten-free, refined sugar-free, vegan, and loaded with goodness! They don’t taste too sweet, and the texture is spongey and scrumptious 🤤.

  • 2 1/2 cups gluten free flour (I used the Jovial brand because I find it is the cleanest and most digestible, plus it’s packed with protein!)
  • 2 t. baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water (make sure it’s not too warm that it kills the yeast)
  • 1 packet rapid rise yeast
  • 1 T. honey (or agave)
  • 1 t. sea salt
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 1 cup wild blueberries mixed with 1 T. honey and 1 t. cinnamon

Whisk your yeast into the warm water, then add 1 T. honey and wait until it gets foamy on top (10 min). 

Combine all dry ingredients while you wait for the yeast combo to bloom, then add the wet + dry to a large bowl, plus your 2 T. of olive oil. Don’t overmix, and bonus: you don’t need to knead it!

Cover with a towel in a warm spot and let it rise for 30 minutes. I set mine by a window.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and grease your muffin tin. After your sits for 30 minutes, portion a heaping tablespoon into each muffin spot, then finger-poke a few holes on top. Spoon your wild blueberries atop each one and encourage them down the holes. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown along the edges. Serve warm with your choice of butter and another drizzle of honey. 😍

Two big takeaways for me in this piece – don’t bite the hook, and drop the hot potato. I love the sentiment behind them so much! Plus, these golden nuggets. Which one is tugging at you today?

A bit of a self care splurge, but if you have hair anywhere you would no longer like it, this WORKS and feels like just a tiny rubber band pop.

This past month there were so many things I was worried about that I wasted too much time on, only for them to turn out to be fine. And you know how everyone tells you to write a gratitude journal? Yes, they are wonderful, but if that’s not working for you, may I suggest another option: Arthur Brooks says to write down your failures, your worries, your grievances. According to science-backed research studies, this helps you to not only get the feeling out of your mind and onto paper, but also when you go back and review it in a few weeks or a few months, life will look a lot different, and you’ll see that it wasn’t something to worry about after all.

Here’s to a beautiful week without worries and replacing them with an abundance of gratitude, well-being, and JOY! Thank you for being here, kind friend 💙.
