Crying is GOOD!? 😢 

Hey everyone, this has to be one of the most interesting things I have read recently even though I kind of knew already, it was still very useful to understand why and how. 

A professor of pharmaceuticals in the 1970s named Dr. William Frey discovered that the main function of emotional tears (when you feel sad) 😔 is to help the body to recover from a stressful situation by releasing lots of hormones and other proteins. Dr. William found out that tears form to rid the body of excess hormones (stress hormones) this is why after we cry, we usually feel much better like a weight has been lifted. Tears = less stress 

If you are interested be sure to research and find out more…

VEGAN Chocolate Cake 

Hey everyone, it’s been a while since I’ve posted some baking but here is the best vegan cake recipe I’ve ever tasted. At university we’ve been working on recipes suitable for different dietary groups so here goes… 

Makes 9

Dry Ingredients 

2 1/2 cups flour 
2 1/2 cups caster sugar
1 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda
1 tsp salt

Wet Ingredients

2 2/3 non dairy milk
2/3 cups oil
2 tbsp vinegar
1 tsp vanilla extract

Method
1. Preheat the oven to 180°c and prepare mini cake loafs for baking.

2. Put all of the dry ingredients into a large bowl and mix well.

3. Then whisk together the wet ingredients in a hug and slowly pour into the bowl whisking constantly.

4. Whisk until you get a smooth runny mixture, evenly pour into the mini loaf cases about 3/4 and bake in the oven for 25 minutes until risen and fully cooked.

5. I like to use a cocktail stick to check if the cake is fully cooked right through. Leave to cool down completely and enjoy 😊😊

Thoughts Become Things 

This is literally the best motto, mantra or saying you can live by. I’ve been recently trying to improve myself overall and practice being the best version possible and these words ‘thoughts become things’are really helping 😊 it is actually scientifically proven that having a positive attitude and mindset can improve your wellbeing and life because you are surrounding your mind with good thoughts and not allowing negativity to get to you. Many well known people actually lived by this and they are well known and famous today for there success. Throughout your day I challenge you to always remember ‘thoughts become things’ and see the amazing changes that take place in your life!!
