What Should I Do if I Get Into a Car Accident?

Getting into a car accident can leave a significant impact on a person. You might get the feeling of guilt, anger, and sadness all at the same time, even if the accident was not your fault. If the accident is significant and you need legal assistance, calling a lawyer will be the best option, for example, you can contact Bergen County car accident lawyer to deal with such situations. Some people get confused after a car accident, and they don’t know what step they should take at that moment as everything plays in their mind, and they try to recall what exactly happened. There are different types of people that react to a car accident in different ways, some of them get angry and start to shout at the other person, some people drive away, and some of them handle the situation calmly. These reactions make sense because a car accident can be very shocking, and the person might not make the correct decision as he or she isn’t in their senses properly.

HANDLING THE SITUATION:

Car accidents can be horrifying, and they might leave an everlasting impact on your life. It is very reasonable for people to panic in such situations due to shock. People might react inappropriately because they are in a panic state and can’t understand how to handle it. The first thing that every person should do after getting into a car accident is to stop your car and stay there instead of just running away because it is possible that the other person is injured and might need your help. After stopping your vehicle instead of just rushing out to fight or feeling mixed emotions take some deep breaths to calm yourself. You won’t be able to make the right decision and think from your mind if you are panicking because the calmer you are, the better prepared you will be to handle the situation. Once you have calmed down, get out of the car to analyze the accident and talk to the person you crashed. If the accident is significant and you or the other person gets injured, the first thing you should do is call an ambulance as soon as possible and the police even if the accident is a minor one.

HANDLING THE ACCIDENT LEGALLY

Calling the police is always the best thing to do because they will legally handle the situation, …

What are the 3 types of events

While there may be only three types of events, these events have only a few variables that make them distinct from one another. What is more staggering is that today even management has become a high-profile industry where businesses are done on an upper level. Initially, event planning and management were considered to be an actual occupation. In fact, it was recognized as a side flick people used to do so that they could generate more income. But today, the tables have turned almost entirely and have done this business into a high scale business. Today, event planning services are available at websites such as https://easyeventhireuk.com/ will help you orchestrate a demand-fit event within the given budget.

While the discussion about event management is never-ending, and today, multiple books are offered on spreading the information regarding the topic itself. Still, to understand what event management is, we need to understand the three types of events. The description is as follows:

Private events

These events are usually casual events where most of the crowd is close friends and family members, and no professional setup is required. The audience is not diverse since the majority of the audience comprises your own family. While friends can be of different backgrounds, having such a healthy level of relationship negates any influence of such differences. These types of events can be a wedding, wedding receptions, birthday parties, and festival gatherings. Due to the nature of such an event, the audience is most likely to be small; hence, everything needs to be at a more modest level. While this is true, we need to understand that it is also a possibility that a private event can be huge since the cultural dynamics and the size of the social gathering matters a lot.

Corporate events

The events used to push a specific business policy or a new product are usually corporate events. With people coming from the competitor party, media, personal entering the scene, and many political figures. The chief guest on such show comprise the total audience of such events. Hence, by this understanding, it is easy to deduce that the setup is highly professional with a lot of diversity between the people there. On top of this, all the decorations, timing, food must be made according to the demand. Some examples of corporate events are business dinners, conferences, Seminars Et cetera.

Strawberries and Cream Dream Cake

Strawberries and Cream Dream Cake

I’m so happy to share this recipe with you all. Sometimes recipe testing goes on and on and on and… you get my drift! The biscuit is too crumbly, the cake didn’t rise, the raw cake didn’t set or worst of all, it’s just tasteless and quite horrible and no matter how many times you test it, something you imagined to be so delicious in your head, just will not work! It was a slightly different story when it came to creating this beauty!

The first time I tested this cake, I leaped for joy! That’s what I do when the first test is already bang-on! I hope you leap with happiness when you taste this perfect summer cake too. Full of wonderful British strawberries, bursting with flavor, in a feather-light layer of vanilla-infused mousse, topping a smooth pistachio layer with a hint of orange, ending with a crunch from the ‘white chocolate’ strawberries and cream Qnola base. It really is one dreamy Clean Cake!

polenta

Raspberry, blueberry, plum polenta

A lot of chefs say, ‘what grows together, goes together’ and I really do believe in this. Just think about it, summer salads of courgette ribbons, shaved runner beans and summer herbs, savoury winter tarts of beetroot, parsnip and carrot or the combination of end of summer-autumn fruits in this delicious and warming pudding made with plums, raspberries and blueberries, all of which have been growing abundantly in my garden (except the blueberries that I pick from my friend’s down the road). The fruits cooked all together make the most wonderful mix of flavours and lovely juices, whilst the polenta and almond crisp-crumble layer on top adds great texture, with the almond extract adding a marzipan like flavour, yum! Feel free to use other seasonal fruits, blackberry, pear and apple is a lovely combination, or even just apple studded with raisins or sultanas… I love quince too!

Fruit filling

250g plums, stoned weight, about 7-8 plums
120g raspberries, fresh or frozen
120g blueberries, fresh or frozen
2 tsp coconut sugar
Juice of ½ orange (40g/ ml juice)
2 strips orange zest, using a potato peeler
½ vanilla pod, seeds scraped out but do not discard the pod, add it to the fruit too!

polenta

Polenta almond crisp topping

50g polenta (fine or quick-cook)
70g ground almonds
70g brown rice flour
35g coconut sugar
¼ vanilla pod, seeds scraped out
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp pink salt
Finely grated zest of half a lemon
70g coconut oil, melted
1 tsp almond extract

Preheat the oven to 200oC.

To make the filling, remove the stones from the plums and cut them into eight (quarter them then half each slice again!). Mix them in the dish you are using with the rest of the ingredients and leave the mix to macerate whilst you make the topping. I use a small-medium oval pie dish that is 21 x 15 x 5cm deep, but a similar size is fine.

To make the topping, mix together all of the ingredients from the polenta to the lemon zest. Add the melted coconut oil and almond extract and stir to combine and form a breadcrumb-like mix. Remove the empty vanilla pod from the fruit mix, give the mix a good stir with a wooden spoon and then scatter the crisp mix over the top of the fruit. Bake for 15 minutes until the top is golden-brown reduce the heat to …

goji berries

Goji Berry: It’s a Super Food, But Does it Taste Super Good?

I have been trying to eat and cook a lot healthier lately and I came across an awesome superfood called goji berries. As they’ve gained popularity rather recently, I am sure you are wondering: 

What do goji berries taste like?

Goji Berry

I was definitely hesitant to try them out at first because they sound quite exotic, and I had heard not so good reviews about the taste, but you have to try everything at least once, right?

Here’s the lowdown on goji berries, how to prepare them, and why you should start eating this superfood – right now!

Where to Goji?

Goji berries are commonly grown in Asia, mainly in China and in the Himalayas of Tibet. You may also hear them being referred to by different names – Chinese wolfberries of Tibetan goji (source).

Goji Berry

Nowadays, goji berries can be found in some well-stocked groceries – check out your local grocer’s health food section – or in most health food stores. These superfoods are all the rage now, so you should not have a hard time finding them in dried or powdered form. You may have to search a little bit harder for the fresh berries, though.

Berry Good

While goji berries are seeing a resurgence in popularity today, they have actually been around for centuries, used in ancient Chinese medicine.

Goji Berry
  • In Chinese medicine, goji berries are included in immune tonics and blood tonics (source) as they pack a powerful punch of vitamin C, boosting the immune system significantly (source).
  • High in antioxidants, the berries are also anti-inflammatory.
  • They are chockful of micronutrients like vitamin A and iron, and contain a complete set of the eight essential amino acids (source).
Goji Berry
  • A one-ounce serving of the berries has 4 grams of protein and three grams of fiber. They are also fat-free and low in calories. A combination of this is great for a regular bowel movement and promotes weight loss.
  • Loaded with beta-carotene, the berries also promote good eyesight and healthy skin.

The legendary healing properties might be just that, however – a legend. There is no solid scientific evidence on the goji berry’s ability to cure cancer and reverse the effects of aging, so take those bigger claims with a grain of salt.

A Little Bit of Everything

Talking of salt, I bet you’re dying to know by now how these berries taste.…

Baobab, mango, mulberry and ginger bites

It’s Thursday and it’s looking a bit grey and wet outside, so here are some energy-boosting sunshine squares to boost you through today and the rest of the week.

These delicious bites are not only energy-boosting, but super-skin boosting too. This is thanks to not only the skin-plumping good fats from cashew nuts, hemp, and sunflowers seeds, but thanks to the amazing feel-good fruit, Baobab! Baobab, I love to use Aduna, is rich in vitamin C, almost 50% fiber and higher in antioxidants than goji berries and acai berries. Vitamin C helps protect cells from oxidative stress, contributes to the normal formation of collagen in the skin and helps promote good skin health, not forgetting the antioxidant-rich white mulberries, alkalizing mango and immune-boosting ginger which is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. These gorgeous squares are the perfect pick-me-up for when you need them plus they’re delicious, as everything we eat MUST taste great, and just happen to be very nourishing at the same time. With its great citrus flavor, baobab also really lifts up and compliments the sweet mango, whilst the mulberries add a little extra happiness!

Makes about 30 small square bites

100g dried mango soaked for 1 hour in cold water, preferably filtered
3 tsp lemon juice
Pinch Himalayan pink salt
50g cashew butter
50g hulled hemp seeds
60g sunflower seeds
60g cashew nuts, roughly chopped
20g fresh ginger, peeled if not organic and roughly chopped
50g desiccated coconut
6-8 tsp baobab powder
30g dried white mulberries

Drain the soaked mango and leave in a sieve for about 15 minutes to let the excess water drain off. Add the soaked mango, lemon juice, salt and cashew butter to the food processor and blend until a smooth paste forms. Add the hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, cashew nuts, chopped ginger and desiccated coconut and blend once more to combine. Add the baobab powder to your preferred taste and blend once more. Lastly add the whole dried white mulberries and pulse just a few times.

Remove everything from the blender and turn out into a tin lined with baking parchment. Press the mix into a rough square shape no more than 1cm thick. Place in the freezer for 1 hour to firm up and then cut into small squares. Finish the squares off by dipping them in a little extra desiccated coconut if you like.

Keep the squares in the fridge for …

Berry Banana Muffins

AM Berry Banana Muffins with Buckwheatie Seed Streusel

These amaranth, buckwheat, mixed berry and banana muffins are full of great things! With a spoonful of coconut yoghurt, they make a delicious breakfast (hence the AM!) with protein, fibre and a steady release of energy from these powerful pseudo-grains and seeds, as well as the banana and berries. If not for breakfast, make a batch on Sundays to pack in your lunches throughout the week, bake some for weekend brunch or tea. The oh-so-soft muffin is finished off with a crunchy buckwheat groat and seed topping, lightly spiced with cinnamon and mesquite. They’re full of flavour, texture and nourishing wholesome ingredients, what could go wrong?!

This recipe is gluten, dairy and refined sugar-free. For an egg-free vegan variation, try replacing the 2 eggs with 2 flax eggs (2 tbsp. ground flaxseeds mixed with 6 tbsp. water, stirred and left for 15 minutes), and adding 10g arrowroot to the dry ingredients. I have not tried it yet but do have a go and let me know how you get on, whichever recipe you try.

The night before, you will need three separate small bowls to soak the following

bowl 1
soak 75g whole amaranth grain
bowl 2
25 pumpkin seeds
25 sunflower seeds
10g flaxseeds/ linseeds
bowl 3
70g buckwheat groats
15g pumpkin seeds
15g sunflower seeds
15g flaxseeds/linseeds

Soak the seeds and grains in a generous amount of tepid water (enough to cover plus a bit more) and a pinch of Himalayan pink salt or sea salt.

The next day, using a fine sieve, drain all the grains and seeds, rinsing them under cold water and keeping the contents of each bowl separate.

Place the amaranth seeds in a saucepan and add 150g cold water. Bring to the boil and then turn down to a low heat until they have absorbed the water. When cooked, they should be soft with a slight bite (al dente). It will take about 10-15 minutes and in the meantime, the rest of the ingredients can be prepared. Stir the seeds occasionally, making sure that they don’t catch. Leave to cool.

Set the oven to 170oC and line a muffin tin with 12 cases.

75g whole grain buckwheat flour
1 tsp gluten-free bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp gluten-free baking powder
1/4 tsp Himalayan pink salt or fine sea salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp mesquite (if you do not have mesquite powder, you …
