Condensed Milk

As you already know we try to follow a hunt and harvest diet, but sometimes you just have this CRAVING for something sweet, at least I know I do.

It is the SWEET SIMPLE THINGS in LIFE which are the real ones after all

Laura Ingalls wilder

We tried a few different techniques and can finally share this one with you, we use this in our Rocky Road, Strawberry Cheesecake (to follow) recipes. Just to calm the nerves and off course the CRAVING devil.

Ingredients

Firstly you will need:

  • 1 liter of Fresh Cream
  • 150 grams of Butter
  • 1/2 cup Stevia/Erythritol/Xylitol/Honey (To Taste)
  • Large Pot
  • Spatula

Preparation

Place all Ingredients in a Large pot/pan (we used a Wok pan)

Add all Ingredients in a large pot/pan together on a medium to low heat

(Keep an Eye On it, leave it alone for to long and it will boil over, making a big mess)

Keep on medium to low heat for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Boiling Point

Remove from heat and let cool *

Let Cool

Use in your other recipes or enjoy a teaspoon full of sweet goodness

*Hot consistency is that of drinking yogurt, as it cools down it will thicken up

Chocolate

This is my and I think many of your, single biggest guilty pleasure, through all the years that I have been on this wellness road, this has been the one thing that I could not live without. My sweet tooth has stuck with me through thick and thin😂😂. I love chocolate, all things chocolate, I love this lifestyle where I can still eat a chocolate and not feel guilty at the end of the day:

Chocolate

  • I love the smell of chocolate
  • I love the taste
  • I love the endorphins
  • I love that it’s a salad 😋😘
  • I love that I can still eat it.

This is one of our favorite ways to eat this wonderful delicate “food of the gods”

This is our go to dessert and festive delicacy for all times of the year.

Hunt and Harvest

Hi guys, I am glad to see you back…

Today I would like to write about one of the first things you need to change when deciding on a new and healthier lifestyle:

Eating habits

I know… 😡 I truly know how you feel right now… I always became instantly mad when reading or hearing these words, but unfortunately this is the TRUTH, no matter how hard you try to fight against it!😇😇

You are what you eat!”

Truth

Before I get into the facts. May I please tell you about my journey so far?

5 years ago, my typical day’s eating consisted of the following:

Breakfast: Black Coffee, with a sigaret (I am not going into this, if you smoke you smoke, if you don’t you don’t. I am just telling you my journey, no judgement🤗).

Lunch: By now I was starving, my brain screaming for energy and if I am honest, my lungs craving oxygen😔. Because of this hysterical fight going on in my body I would speed to the nearest fast food drive-thru (because it is just to much work to walk inside🙈) Here I would order, and I do promise you the following is the truth: A McFeast Deluxe🍔, Supersize🍔🍔, with 2 junior cheeseburgers🍔🍟 and a supersize milkshake🥛.

4 o’clock: Once again an energy depraved body would signal hunger… good person that I am I would listen and treat myself to a chocolate🍫, usually the biggest one.

Dinner: Alfredo pasta🍲 was my favorite, I still love Italian food, but then I would have ate a whole large pizza🍕🍕.

That moment when you love something more than you love yourself…

Then I had the scare with my back and things had to change;

This is when I learned about Hunt and Harvest

So get out your gardening tools; later I will do a post on our amazing veggie garden, where I will show you how we have combined therapy and the kitchen.

The base of this diet is that you can only eat what you can hunt or harvest.

Another way of looking at this, is to say that the more food you can eat without labels the better you will do.

Begin your Vegetable Garden. Written by J v Zyl and P v Noord.

The moment the food went through a factory of any sort, it is taboo. If you do not control what is in your food, you are not controlling what you put in your body. 🤢💩.

I bought this book on Takealot, and used it to start our veggie garden. It is very understandable with lovely pictures, where anyone will feel like the best gardener in the world. (More on this later.)

Some of you reading this will even be able to hunt for your own food, I do my hunting in our local butchery🤠. Our butchery of choice is Hyper Meat and Chicken here in Middelburg, they are a family owned business where the butchers will truly go out of their way to help you with your meat. Our favorite butcher is definitely Koos Jacobs, he loves his job completely and will help you with any dietary needs. Give them a try if you want to.

Now a typical day’s eating consists of:

Breakfast: Protein and veggies and cheese.

Dinner: Something light with salad, in the winter we love our soup.

Please join us for recipes and pictures of our daily food on this diet.

You will see we eat, LEGAL condensed milk. We make Rocky Road, Chocolate Mousse, Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake and many other lovely desserts, where we can eat and not feel bad. 🍫🍰🎂🍦

I am truly blessed to have my mother in my house, later I will introduce her to you, at the moment I am still struggling to get her in front of the camera. 👀👣This woman goes out of her way to feed us (legally) every day, she is truly an inspiration and a complete guru when it comes to food.

I make you the following promises:

  • I am never, NEVER EVER hungry
  • I have not been on a diet for the past 5 years, nor will I ever go on one again.
  • I am never ever HANGRY, which was always the case before, (ask my husband)
  • I loose centimeters.
  • It is sustainable… and cheaper than any other diet.
  • I never feel bad after I’ve eaten about myself or my habits.
  • My hands never swell anymore
  • I don’t drink pills or shakes (that cost a lot of money)
  • I don’t go for injections for weight loss.
  • I never have fluctuating blood sugar levels anymore, where your whole body trembles.

You CAN TRY this, it works.

If you need more help or guidance or you just want to chat, you are welcome to shoot me an email, I would love to hear from you!

Your’s sincerely

XOXO
