I came across a recipe that I really wanted to make which was Raspberry Coconut Slice (recipe coming soon) and saw that it required raspberry jam but instead of using the sugary pre-packaged type, I wanted to try making my own.
Step #1- Place a couple of saucers in the freezer, ready to test the setting point of the jam. Step #3- To test for setting point, place a teaspoon of the mixture on a chilled saucer, place in the freezer for 1 minute. Step #4- Pour the hot jam into clean jars, turn the jars upside down for 2 minutes, then invert and leave to cool. Hey everyone,  One of my favourite sweet slices and absolute weakness is hedgehog slice so I thought I would share my recipe. As I mentioned in my Citrus Coconut Cupcakes recipe ; I absolutely LOVE coconut, full stop.

We also learned that once we stabilize our blood sugar levels by making sound food choices, we will be able to maximize fat burning and prevent disease in our body. Today we are going to take a look at the Glycemic Index as a helpful tool in making healthier food choices. The Glycemic Index or (GI) is a ranking of carbohydrate foods based on how quickly they raise our sugar levels (blood glucose levels). Choosing low to medium (GI) carbohydrate foods  – the ones that produce only small fluctuations in our blood glucose and insulin levels is the “key” to long-term health by reducing your risk of heart disease and diabetes.
You can switch to eating a lower GI diet by simply swapping out high GI carbs for low GI carbs. Find out some great ideas for swapping out high GI foods for low GI foods at the Harvard Health Publication along with some other helpful tips and  information. If you haven’t already done so I warmly invite you to read my articles on creating a balanced meal plan, the green light nutritional program and high energy foods and their healing properties for making healthier food choices.

If you haven’t already done so, I invite you to read my article on this very subject!
I agree that the GI is a great tool for making healthier food choices based on our individual body requirements. I agree with you that the Glycemic Index is another wonderful tool in helping people make better food choices since all carbohydrates are not considered equal in how they affect our sugar levels. When a person reads over the all the different foods on the GI and all their different ratings it really is an eye opener.
The GI is a great tool for making better food selections but I still pay attention to my own body wisdom beyond all else to lead the way! I bet most people have no idea how many dis-eases they can regulate with diet and therefore stop taking meds. My Father got off of cholesterol, high blood pressure and blood sugar regulating meds ALL with diet and he is in his early 80’s.
Like most shifts, the changes begin almost immediately and then continue to good health, in body, in mind, in Spirit, in your life and relationships and everything. We can either overdose on the steady diet of unhealthy food that will cause illness or we can enjoy a healthy prescription of foods that contain all the nutrients our bodies need to heal itself. Virtually ALL foods have drug-like effects that can either improve our health or damage it.
I am so grateful that your father was able to get off all his meds by simply changing his diet for the better.
And believe me, my Father or myself, neither one deprive ourselves of anything or follow any rigid strict diet. I’ve always said, do those things now that you plan on continuing for the rest of your life. Your methods align with my ideas of taking small steps and getting better and better and better and better until being BETTER is just a habit!

If we would all just work on getting better and better and better until being BETTER is a “habit” then we would all be BETTER!! Years ago, when I was told I had maybe 6 months to live and there was absolutely NOTHING they could do about it, I decided right then I was going to live a great life until I died. I was already the type of person to jump into things but if I had any hesitations left in me, this got rid of them. Well, I got better and better until 10 years later, I finally at the strong insistence of my family went to a M.D. I’m not advising that people go off their meds either but when a person incorporates, moderate exercise, healthy eating and a positive mind-set – MIRACLES Happen!!!
Place the berries, sugar and lemon juice in a large microwave safe bowl and stir until well combined. Run your finger through the jam, if the mixture wrinkles and stays separated the jam is ready. It is important to follow this Glycemic Index.Thanks for posting such an informative blog post. Our focus should not just be on avoiding the “bad” foods but nourishing our body temple with the “good” foods. Anyhow, things finally paid off.And I totally agree with your comment about resting with laminated dough.
I eat quite a lot of potatoes, because I can’t eat wheat so tend to use them as a substitute.
