April Baking News

Last week someone we know because of early morning exercise brought a fresh-baked loaf of bread to our door. To complete the image, the living room had been converted for rehab for two of the three household members! He made life lighter with his house call and favorite whole wheat bread and recipe’s story.

Julie. R Thomson, Senior Editor, Taste, The Huffington Post provides a great benefit summary in her March 31, 2017, Psychologists Explain the Benefits of Baking for Other People. In interviews with a professor of psychology and brain science and a medical social worker and culinary art therapist, baking for yourself and others infuses self-expression, communication, mindfulness, stress reduction, increased happiness, and altruism.   Add our gratitude to this list, and the power to tackle what’s next is there.

What’s next could be World Health Day, April 7 or National Volunteer Week, April 23-29.   Quoting Muhammad Ali, Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on Earth.”

 What could you do?

Tortillas-79

Volunteer in a classroom or after school program to create a Portable Kitchen experience like Pumpkin Pancakes Book and Bake, Tortillas in a Bag or a Kids A Cooking recipe.
