Avocado Egg Salad

YUM!  This was so delicious!  This is a balanced acid-alkaline recipe!

2 hard boiled eggs (organic, free range)
1 avocado
2 stalks celery
olive oil
sea salt

Cut up the eggs, avocado and celery and place into a bowl.
Pour olive oil over it as much as you want.  I was pretty generous.
Sprinkle on some dried basil, and sea salt
Mix together and enjoy!

Grain Free Coconut Flour Bread

Yum and hooray!  This delicious grain free bread was shared with me by Laura Lehrhaupt of  

Here is the super simple recipe:

1 1/2 cups coconut flour
1 cup ghee (I used 3/4 cup coconut oil and 1/4 cup goat butter)
12 eggs (Look for organic, free range)
2 tbsp agave nectar (I used coconut crystals.  If you are avoiding sweeteners, use stevia)
1 tsp unrefined sea salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Combine coconut flour, ghee, eggs, agave and sea salt together.  Mix all the ingredients together until they form a smooth paste with no clumps.  Grease a loaf pan.  Spoon the mixture into the loaf pan and bake in an oven preheated to 350 degrees F for 40 mins.  Note: I actually baked mine a little bit longer than this.

And, as Laura reminds us:  Enjoy with something GREEN!!
This keeps your body's ph in balance.
Thank you, Laura!

Spinach Popcorn

Look at the brilliant creation my son came up with so that he could get his greens in and still have something yummy that he likes to eat.  This is air-popped organic popcorn with some olive oil and sea salt and pieces of organic spinach thrown in.  He actually really enjoyed tearing up the spinach and adding to his bowl.  He went through and ate all of the little green pieces before digging into the popcorn!  This is a kid who does not like to eat any veggies!  And to think that I almost told him no when he came up with the idea!  Who eats spinach with popcorn, I thought?  But, hey, maybe more people would benefit from doing it.  :)

Grain Free Coconut Flour Pancakes

I have had some pain flare ups, so I'm back to the Low Oxalate Diet.  This time I'm doing things differently than I did when I used it a few years ago.  This time I know a lot more about nutrition!  Here is my treat for this morning.  To my delight, my son loved these, too!  I found the recipe here at Wellness Mama.  Of course, mine did not turn out perfectly round or even that beautiful, but they tasted great and served their purpose!

5 eggs
1 cup of applesauce
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 tsp baking soda
cinnamon to taste
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla

Mix together and let sit while skillet heats up.
The batter was really thick, but they still cooked fine.  You may have to spread them out after you put them onto the skillet.  Mine did not ever bubble, but I just kept checking them and turning them when they looked ready.

Acai Superfood Bowl

This is so easy and so full of nutrients!

Here is all you have to do:
Mash one ripe banana in a bowl
Sprinkle in some cinnamon and some acai powder
Mix together
Add some blueberries and broken pieces of walnuts
Mix together again.
