Did some blood tests...
I was quite afraid about the results as in my family we have a history of diabetes, heart condition and high blood pressure. And the problem is that I adore sweet things, love butter and do not feed properly..
Last blood tests were 2 years ago and I was pleasantly surprised as I had nothing wrong with me and thought of that as a chance to make things better and treat my body better as well.
And then Covid-19 came and we had to stay home and bake and make banana breads etc.. :-) And I gained 2 kilos...
So, I thought to make a check up and I did.. And everything came back normal..
Well, not 100% normal as my blood pressure is high but that is dealt with but the rest of the tests I passed with no problems.
Still, I thought that I must be careful of what I eat and drink and do more exercise.
So I started with food.
Am not going to give up bread and butter and desserts but will try to make them a bit healthier... try to avoid a lot of fat, white sugar, and try to add a lot more whole wheat flour to my food..
So I began with these scones.. Instead of butter I used olive oil, they have a ton of whole wheat flour, brown raw sugar etc.... Recipe based on a recipe by Genevieve Ko who I absolutely love!
They turned out super delicious! Here is the recipe!
