Lemon and Ginger Shortbread


Sugar free, gluten free and lactose free!
Quick and easy to make, and very nice, with a cup of tea!


What's needed:

  • 1 cup buckwheat flour (cup size)
  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons almond butter
  • Zest of 1 lemon (leave some aside to sprinkle the biscuits when still hot)
  • Juice of ¼ lemon
  • a piece of ginger (about 2.5 cm)
  • 1 banana
  • 1 apple
  • 1 dash of love!

Here's how ...

Preheat oven to 180 ° C. Add all the ingredients together in a food processor and let everything mix well to form a dough. For portioning, take small pieces of dough and roll them into balls with your hands. Then draw and sculpt them into long biscuits, about 1 cm thick strips are ideal. If you find the mixture is too sticky, you can sprinkle your hands with dry flour.

Place the biscuits on a baking sheet and let them bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes or until they start to turn golden to light brown.Then remove the tray from the oven and let it cool. Arrange the biscuits into desired shape and sprinkle the remaining lemon zest over it. This gives the shortbreads that extra acidic kick!

Place in the fridge for 2 hours to set, then enjoy!

The Weiss Method team hopes that you enjoy this baking treat and a healthy, sugar-free meal!.

Quit That Sugar Craving - from Sein magazine, 2014


Know this situation? You buy a chocolate bar expecting to take it home to eat later, then every last piece is eaten within minutes and somehow even that was not enough. This unbridled urge for sugar can lead to obesity and disease and is usually difficult to treat. I say usually. The Israeli healer Amir Weiss has developed a method to calm the potency of the addiction stimulus, resulting in an immediate disinterest in the so-called sugar drug.​

The concept of sugar addiction has been in the public eye for some time. We are living in a very exciting time of change, where transparency is precedent. Articles and film documentaries about sugar are freely found, including "That Sugar Film" and many others, showing us that the physical and psychological effects of sugar addiction, seen individually and in society as a whole are frightening. Never in the history of humankind has the per capita consumption of refined sugar been so high.

Sugar and natural alternatives

With so much information about processed sugar around...

Sometimes, it's hard to get a good sense of what is right for each of us. The pendulum has swung towards "quit sugar" or "no sugar" in the healthy living realms, and much of it seems just as unbalanced as the overconsumption of sugar that plagues much of the developed world. Is there a middle road? What are the alternatives? Are we too scared of sugar to enjoy the beauty of a piece of fruit? Jude Blereau's recent post about balancing our dietary approach in greater context of our lifestyle had me thinking about how important it is to have a little sweetness in our lives. It can be from the food we eat, the people round us or even seeing the beauty of the world we live in. Sweetness is at the core of our celebrations in life, linked into our happiest moments. Imagine a birthday party without cake, a summer without an ice-cream, or a wedding without a honeymoon? It is just for this reason that I am writing this, as there are many natural forms of sugar that can be enjoyed in small amounts that do not take away well-being like processed sugar can.

Onto the sugar line-up… in the processed corner we have:

Processed (white) sugar

White sugar is made up of sucrose, which is a combination of fructose and glucose. It comes from sugar cane, which is a natural plant – so why is white sugar so bad for us? In the refining process it goes through all vitamins, minerals enzymes, fibers and phytonutrients are removed and these are all essential for our body to be able to process it and slowly release the fuel it offers, thus keeping our system in balance. Instead, processed sugar goes straight into the blood stream in one dose, provides a huge high of energy and then it just stops. It's like a plane using all of it's fuel in the first 30mins of flight, and not having enough to continue the further 4 hours it has to fly, what happens? It crashes, and so do we. And then we eat more sugar to feel the energy high again… and round and round it goes. But nowhere in that does anything of nutritional value enter our system, leaving our amazing body to try to process it by bringing in nutrients from other sources, sadly having to take them away from other important functions they had been planned for.
