A cup of tea & sheer bliss!
┬ęcopyright2013owpp

This is a very easy recipe with very common and inexpensive ingredients. Besides a blender it doesn’t need any machinery. As I’ve told you in previous posts, I don’t have too much patience nor time for lengthy and complicated recipes.
As I’m on a macrobiotic food plan I don’t eat dairy products so, this is a perfect alternative. The taste is not the one of cheese but it’s nevertheless a delicious cake.
Let me know the results if you feel like venturing in the experience (for the fun) of a cozy Sunday afternoon ­čÖé

100% natural talc substitute, Rice flour, for odorless shoes, slippers and much more!


rice flour

Talc absorbs moisture but we know all the side effects it has.
In short, it is a health hazard. I’ve come up with a very easy
alternative answer!

Rice powder! It absorbs moisture too. You surely remember
having seen in restaurants, grains of rice in salt cellars to keep
the salt dry.

I use rice flour for slippers to keep them odorless and it really helps!

I use it as a seasoned starch to coat my fish before frying it, as a soup
thickener, to manufacture my own toothpaste, or powder deodorant…
but that will be for other posts to come.

There are a million ways to use rice flour.
It is cheap, practical, free of chemicals, preservatives or coloring.

The perfect natural ecological answer ­čÖé
