It’s that time of year to enjoy time with family, friends and good, real food. Here are some ideas for you if you haven’t already planned out your menu.
By now you have probably heard about turmeric or curcumin and it’s amazing anti-inflammatory properties. I had read about it and started encapsulating dried turmeric to help with my headaches last fall. But it wasn’t until I started working with my doctor (who is wonderful) that I realized that the regular culinary form of turmeric wasn’t going to cut it when it came to really helping me with my inflammation. Or, I was going to have to take a LOT of it to notice a difference.
I’ve been making these cod cakes for my client and she has been loving them. If you are someone who doesn’t like salmon very much and prefers white fish, you will probably love them. Plus they are nut-free which is an extra added benefit for those of you who can’t have nuts. I hope you enjoy them!
Happy Spring and for those who celebrate, Happy Easter! Spring is my favorite time of year and I think probably everybody’s favorite this year after the harsh winter we had. I’m grateful for the warm days we’ve had and the blossoming trees.
Happy Valentine’s Day! When I was a kid, my mom made Valentine’s heart cakes with a heart cake mold and then brought them to school for Valentine’s Day. These were the days before we knew about my food allergies. The cakes were super moist, yummy and frosted with pink frosting with a red heart in the middle. Yum!
I have had a craving for Orange Cranberry Muffins ever since I saw this yummy looking recipe at Comfy Belly. However, I’ve been avoiding almond flour (as best I can) and wanted to do a full coconut flour version. The only other Paleo or GAPS style recipe I could find that could be nut-free was Elana’s Cranberry Walnut bread. So I used the two recipes and came up with a delicious recipe, luckily on the first try. We really enjoyed them and I hope you do too! They would be an awesome addition to Christmas breakfast. Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
Wow, so it’s been three months since I have done a blog post. This is mainly due to going through a detox the past couple of months that made doing anything above and beyond the most essential tasks of life pretty much impossible. I did start feeling better a couple weeks ago and this week I have felt much better.
This recipe happened by accident. I was trying to make Raw Cacao Mousse but I didn’t soak the dates long enough and so they simply would not blend into the the rest of the mixture in my food processor. They were also old dates that I was trying to salvage so they were no longer soft and gooey but rather hard. The taste was yummy but the texture was gritty from the date skins.
