My Morning Park Exercise between 6:30 and 7:30 A.M.: There’s a moment when I begin to stretch, the park is quiet, no dog walkers, and I start breathing to a rhythm that is uniquely mine. A stretch emanates from very deep inside. It’s a slow letting go, of tension. my limbs relax, and I start to swing my arms. I think of the benefits, limiting stress, increasing flexibility. The many long-term benefits of regular endurance exercise will be discussed in future posts.
Lemon poppy-seed Muffins
- 2 cups flou/ or combination walnut flour/spelt/whole wheat
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1/2 cup soy milk/almond milk
- 1/2 cup oil/fruit
- 1 cup fruit
- 3 tbsp flax meal plus 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- zest from one lemon
- 1/4 cup poppy seeds
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease or line a muffin pan.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate small bowl, whisk together then lemon juice, soy milk and vanilla. Add the liquids. Then add the egg / flax seed meal. Stir in the lemon zest and poppy seeds.
Gently combine the flour mixture with the soy milk and fruit mixture just until mixed. I do the combining in batches. Mix gently 1.5 tablespoons of flour mixture with batter 2 tab batter. This way the air remains in the mixture.
Pour into prepared baking paper lined muffin tins.
For extra sweet muffins, sprinkle the top of each muffin with a pinch of extra 100% chocolate shavings.
Bake for 20 – 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean. I generally turn the muffins after half the time. The muffins will be soft and you will handle them gently, but the come together over a few days. these muffins freeze well.
