Recipes are fun!

I have been doing the 21 DSD and making the recipes in the book, not the cook book.  I haven’t gotten the cook book yet.  The recipe I made this time was the apple streusel muffins.  They were very tasty but not what I was looking for.  It seemed to wet when I bit into it.  I can’t give you the whole recipe you can buy Diane’s book The 21 DSD and get the awesome recipes, tips and different levels you can do.  I found it at Costco for under 20.00.

I did however fall in love with her almond butter cup recipe!  It takes that chocolate edge off and kills it dead!  I love the almond butter cups.

  The apple muffins have granny smith apples peeled and chopped,eggs, cinnamon,coconut milk and quite a few other ingredients in them, but I can not share them since they do not belong to me.  I will how ever show you the pictures of how I made them.

Get the book, it really has great stuff in it!!  I’m hoping to get her new 21 DSD Cookbook!!  Maybe Valentines will be the day !!

21 DSD day 3 & 4 and I’m still alive and nobody has been killed ;)

I was feeling tired and a little cranky on day 3.  My DH is still very sick so that has kept me quite busy.  I’ve been taking pictures of most of my meals just to help me keep track of the likes and dislikes and what I am eating.  Pistachio’s have been saving me while at doctors offices and pharmacies for my DH.  I’m going to really load up on the food pictures on this post because I skipped a day.  Today’s post will cover my day 3 and 4.  I am on the tail end of day 5 whilst typing this.  One thing before I forget.  I got some Green Pastures Blue Ice Royal Butter oil/ Fermented cod liver oil blend gel in cinnamon tingle.  I have come to realize I am the biggest pansy in the world.  Oh my this stuff is hard to get down!  The first time I took it was when I first got it and it was liquid, sorta, but not really.  It’s almost about to turn me off cinnamon.  I take one dose a day and I really hope this horrifying goop has great benefits, because it is close to torture.  I have to talk myself into to taking it, blech!!  If anyone knows of a better way to get this stuff ingested please tell me, please!  Ok, enough of that, on to the good stuff.

ImageBreakfast smoothie made with Raw cow’s milk, 1 frozen green tipped banana, 2 TBS Almond butter 1/2 tsp cinnamon and a hard boiled egg.  I needed avocado for this but the ones I got at the farmers market this past weekend were no good 😦

Imageoven baked chicken and cucumbers with olive oil, vinegar and salt and pepper.

Dinner was rotisserie chicken and cucumbers, nothing picture worthy.  I had a glass of Raw milk before bed.

 

On to day 4,

Imagecarrot pumpkin muffins topped with coconut butter mixed with cinnamon and  two eggs fried in Ghee with Turmeric.  Very filling breakfast!

Imageleft over rotisserie chicken and cucumber salad made with cherry tomatoes, Kalamata olives, a English cucumber, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, cracked black pepper, oregano, basil and sea salt.  I decided I wanted feta cheese to top it off for the next time.  I decided to go shopping after lunch.  Dinner was left over chicken and cucumber salad with feta cheese added.  I got a few other things I needed to make the smoothie out of the book for day 5.  Time to go into the kitchen and make some Chia seed pudding for tomorrow.  The question is should I do chocolate, cinnamon or a combination of the two?

 

Trying out a recipe for treats to take to my produce sort this week.

A really simple quick treat to make for friends, family and neighbors. This is a much better option than any other sweet treat you can find or buy. All Paleo friendly ingredients too.

1 cup Almond butter ( no sugar added)

1 farm fresh egg

1/4 cup raw honey

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

3/4 cup chocolate chips ( I used enjoy life, no soy,dairy ect)

Mix all but the chocolate chips together well. Add chocolate chips and using a spoon drop onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

Cook for 8 to 10 minutes in a 350 degree pre-heated oven. Cool for how ever long you can stand it and enjoy.
