I’m not good with wheat, so I needed a GF recipe for a wrap that wasn’t just potato/rice is very easy:
1 wrap: Combine 3 tbsp ground linseed, 1/4 tsp each of baking powder, onion salt, paprika. Beat with 1 tbsp melted coconut oil, 1 tbsp water and 1 large egg. Press the mixture onto a greased glass or plastic plate and microwave at full power (800W) for 2 minutes 30 seconds. Leave to cool for a few minutes, then ease off with a fish slice. Flip over and add your savoury filling of choice.
This makes a substantial lunch dish! I was nervous the first time about the effect of such a large dose of linseed, but all was fine. I get by with 3 of these per week.
(It’s OK kept in the fridge wrapped in clingfilm for a couple of days.)
Cold showers have been shown to relieve depression symptoms due to the intense impact of cold receptors in the skin, which send an overwhelming amount of electrical impulses from the peripheral nerve endings to the brain. Thus, it produces an antidepressive effect, and boosts moods, making it a pick-me-up. A 2008 study found that cold hydrotherapy has an analgesic effect, and does not appear to have noticeable side effects or cause dependence. This treatment included one to two cold showers of 38 degrees Fahrenheit, two to three minutes long, followed by a five-minute gradual adaptation to make the procedure less shocking.
