Blind Baking Pastry is part of the pastry making process which some of us haven't across. In this video, Lorraine demonstrates blind baking, which will stop her gluten free pastry from going soggy when the flan mix is added.
I recently went too a wedding and it struck me profoundly how committed the Bride and Groom were. They invested a huge amount of effort into the appearance of their wedding and all the paraphernalia that it entails, but they also made an enormous but effortless amount of committment too people and time. So not only had the Bride and Groom made a committment too each other, they also made a committment too their 'life' and values; which seemed to be reliability, honesty and communication.
How can this relate too Nutrition and my Clinic I hear you ask. I am wondering if committment to our internal self is something which is fundamentally lacking, as we are so focused on the external appearance, we neglect our health.
Well, today I had a patient not attend, they just simply didnt turn up, no phone call, no email, no letter. They had invested energy into making the plan, but made no committment too following it through. I wondered that if they were not committed to themselves and their health, which they have proved by not attending, then does it reflect on their lifestyle, health and communication - I think the answer is yes. They clearly didnt value themselves and their health enough too attend, or if they couldn't attend to communicate this.
So, the summary to my little ditty, is that if you do not make committments to the simple things in life, such as appointments, then will you fail to make committments to other important things in life such as health.
It's never ceased to amaze me that patients will cancel an appointment with regards too their health in order too have their hair done or nails painted. So they make a committment to their external appearance, to the detriment of their internal health.
Maybe, if people learnt to reverse this, they would see a healthier, leaner future.
Just a thought ..........
