Experimenting with Molasses
What do you think? This is actually my breakfast. The ingredients are great.....I've added quick oats, goji berry, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, cashew nuts and raisins. Then, I add hot water to and 1 tablespoon of blackstrap molasses.
I love the nuts and oats but adding blackstrap molasses is a bad combination. There is so much talk about the goodness of blackstrap molasses but there aren't many delicious recipes that includes blackstrap molasses. They only taste great when they are made in cookies, cakes and "Gan Lao Mien" (chinese dried sauce noodle) but other than that they don't go easily well with other food.
I have been trying to increase my iron and calcium intake and blackstrap molasses is one of the best option since they are packed with iron, calcium, manganese, magnesium, copper, potassium, selenium and Vitamin B6.
It is also claimed that they are able to improve some ailments such as anemia, constipation, anxiety, ulcers, varicose veins, dematitis, rheumatism, arthritis pain, period pain and etc.
After I discovered its benefits, I am all out to try it .....can you imagine that this blackstrap molasses which is usually used as a sweetener and came from a third boil sugar cane can actually have so many nutrients? Anyway I believe we can get the best from all natural food sources and not the synthetic / man made ones.
