In the seemingly endless pursuit of health, it’s easy to forget.  Forget the minerals and nutrients your body needs, forget that your body isn’t the enemy, forget the foods you used to love, or just to swap your brain for an easy menu plan and then follow along like a robot.

The fourth and final R of gut health is Remember.  When you’re healing and on the road to healthy, you need to remember to care for your friendly gut bacteria, remember to eat foods that provide minerals and vitamins, and remember self-care like good sleep, exercise and mindfulness.

Most importantly, remember that
if you are alive then your body is a success.

Remember that what you’re doing is courageous work.  You’re treating your body like the amazing thing it is.  You’re pushing past your comfort zone and getting adventurous.  You’re listening to what your body is saying, even when it’s reporting news you don’t like. You’re caring for yourself, and therefore the people around you.

You Deserve a Cookie!

Because we also think it’s good to remember that food is fun and delicious and worth sharing.  So we made up this recipe that tastes like a peanut butter & jelly sandwich bite.  The best part is that this recipe has no dairy, no nuts, no eggs, no gluten, and no refined sugar, so you don’t need to forget your commitment to healing yourself.

Don’t forget we love you!

PB & J Cookies

2 Tb chia seeds
1/4 cup water
1 ripe, mashed banana {about 1/4 cup}
1/4 melted coconut oil
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup tahini
1/2 cup sunflower seed butter {no sugar added}
1 1/2 cups sorghum flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt if seed butters are UNsalted {omit if salt is in the seed butters}
1/4 cup jelly or jam of your choice

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and gather 2 cookie sheets.
2. In a high-powered blender or an electric mixer combine chia seeds, water, mashed banana, melted coconut oil, coconut sugar, tahini and sunflower seed butter {using a blender will grind the chia seeds, a mixer will keep them intact so your cookies will have a slight crunch to them}.
3. Once the wet ingredients are fully incorporated, add the sorghum flour and baking soda {and sea salt if your seed butters are UNsalted}: remove seed butter mixture from blender and mix in the dry ingredients in a separate bowl, or just add the flour and baking soda to the bowl of your electric mixer.
4. When the flour is well-combined the dough will form a ball and look a bit oily.  Using your hands, form dough into balls, place on cookie sheet, and press your thumb into the center of the dough ball, flattening the cookie a bit and making a little “well.”  Add 1/2 tsp of jam or jelly to the well, and repeat with the remaining dough.
5. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes, and cool on a wire rack.  Store uneaten cookies in the refrigerator for up to a week {don’t be put off by slight discoloration, this is from the mashed banana}.


People in Australia order more remedies per person than any other country. The availability of remedies provided by companies is definitely a contributing factor to prescription remedy abuse epidemic. So the next matter is where can you find info that is reliable. You can find the data overnight and conveniently by going online. What medicines you can purchase online? For example Xylocaine causes loss of feeling in an area of your body. Given before dental work. Again treats emergency core rhythm problems. Thousands of customers buy online such medicaments like Cialis. What about effects of Cialis and sexual health problems? What about sexual disorders and Cialis Side Effects? A common sexual appeal among men is the erectile dysfunction. Sexual health problems can often indicate problems elsewhere. A common class of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, which include Prozac can cause problems in bed. So if you are experiencing sexual problems, it is substantial to see a qualified pharmacist right away for a complete natural examination. Again most side effects vary from human to human. This preparation is for you. Never give Cialis to other men even if their condition appears to be the same as yours.

    Hi Liz!
    I love the sound of this recipe. Is it possible to swap out the tahini for something else, perhaps cashew or another nut butter?
    Thanks for the great recipes! I love what GRUB does. 🙂

    • Oh yes, Aunt Mooshka! I think any nut or seed butter would be awesome. I’d just recommend making sure there’s no added sugar in the nut butter, or if there is, reducing the coconut sugar in the recipe. Enjoy!
