Twirly Swirly Organic Nature

I haven't made sweet rolls in about 3 months. The last time I did was for my birthday. Now we have Easter this weekend and I've decided that despite this Primal lifestyle that I've been trying to adopt - we would go ahead with some of our new traditions... by making bunny buns again. Only this time I added some turmeric to make them extra yellow-orange and I added in some other alternative flours. The ratio of all purpose flour to the Primal approved flours is still like 85/15 but every little bit helps I'm sure. I had a mixture of flax seed, chia seed and quinoa flour that I used... and I didn't want to add too much to this recipe because that might change the way it rises. Luckily we didn't have any problems. We also used butter in place of oil and honey in place of sugar. They turned out yummy. [Found a traditional bunny bun shape here]

And in case any one is wondering, it is not hard to adopt the Primal Blueprint - and I have lost weight effortlessly, but it is hard to do it all the time especially when other people in the house are not on the PB and there are Easter treats around. But I will start up again Tuesday - after the Holiday :)

Okay, so earlier today I did my first post using my Android application for Blogger and it didn't work. I can't find the post that I supposedly posted. I may have accidently selected for it to post later, in which case I should be able to find it as "scheduled" and still in my post list, but it's just not there... and it was such a nice post about Nature... in any event, I shall try to recall my wording again - doubt it will sound as good the 2nd time...

I was out in the garden and noticed that one particular plant we have has a twirly swirly way in which it grows. It's the fern. It starts out like a ball and then it shoots out "branches" of curly twirly whirly swirly green organic sweet rolls. I have some photos to prove it.

Pretty cool huh?!
