Date Filled Cookies! and ebooks of What Your Doctor Doesn’t Tell You About Foods!

January 24, 2014

After many requests, I’ve decided to give you the recipe for these yummy cookies, found in my latest release What Your Doctor Doesn’t Tell You About Foods, Book Two. I have made dozens of these little treats over the last few months, for my family and friends, and for my presentations in promoting my books.

The three books that were released this year are now available on my website as a PDF download, for $7.99 each, What Your Doctor Doesn’t Tell You About Foods, book one, two, and three. You may also print the order form and receive all 5 books with no shipping charges, for a limited time offer.

DATE FILLED COOKIES

It is easy to grind the raw almonds or hazelnuts quickly in a Magic Bullet or blender, or even a coffee grinder. This is much fresher than the bought Almond Flour.
This recipe makes about 30 to 36 single cookies or 15 to 18 when stacked with the date filling.

4 cups finely ground nuts (I use almonds or hazelnuts)
1/3 cup melted butter
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. unrefined sea salt
1/2 cup liquid honey

Filling:
1 lb. pitted dates
1/3 cup water
1 tbsp. lemon juice

1. Mix all ingredients well.
2. Roll into small balls, about 1″ in diameter.
3. Place on parchment paper on a cookie sheet, or an oiled sheet and press balls into flat cookies with the back of a buttered teaspoon.
4. Bake at 300 degrees F. until lightly golden brown, about 13 minutes. Do not overbake.
5. Cool for 5 minutes, and then gently remove from pan to cool further.
6. Put water, dates and lemon juice in a saucepan and gently heat, stirring often, until a paste.
7. Spread between two cookies.
8. Place cookies in a closed container and keep in the fridge or freezer.

Do not feel guilty about enjoying these nutritious morsels!

In Health,
Paulette.

Hazelnut Encrusted Chicken or Turkey Nuggets!

November 25, 2013

Try these quick tasty little morsels today! I like to use an Asian peanut dipping sauce with them.

chicken or turkey breast
raw whole hazelnuts
coconut oil
garlic powder

1. Preheat oven to 400 F.

2. Cut chicken or turkey into approximately 1 ½ chunks.

3. Gently melt enough coconut oil in a medium saucepan to coat the chicken or turkey pieces.

4. Grind hazelnuts in a Magic Bullet, coffee grinder or blender to make a flour. Use one cup to begin with or with whatever amount your appliance works best. Repeat with subsequent batches, depending on the amount of chicken you have.

5. Place the chunks in the oil and stir to coat evenly with oil.

6. Place ground nuts in a flat plate and add garlic powder to taste and combine.

7. Dredge chunks with nut mixture and place on parchment paper on a cookie sheet.

8. Bake at 400 F. for 15 minutes or until centre of chunks are no longer pink.

Serve these with oven fries, a large green salad, and dipping sauce of your choice. Great leftover for lunches as well.

Enjoy!

Homemade Broth Seasoning Request!

November 1, 2013

A friend requested that I put my homemade broth powder on the blog, so here it is!

This wonderful easy to make seasoning may take the place of all of those bought cubes and powders that we often use in making soups, sauces and casseroles. I have tried many over the course of several years. This idea was origianlly found in an Alive magazine and I have changed several ingredients. Avoiding MSG and other undesirable ingredients is important. You may purchase several different organic or healthy alternatives at the health food store, with chicken, beef or vegetable flavors, but it is easy to make this version below. It keeps well, and adds flavor with natural healthy ingredients. Try it in your winter soups!

I have a lot of my own dried sage from a beautiful sage plant in my flower bed and I grind up my organic dried onions and dried garlic.

Homemade Chicken Like Seasoning

1 1/3 cups nutritional yeast flakes
3 tbsp. onion powder
1 tbsp Celtic or unrefined sea salt (use less if desired)
2 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. protein powder (I used goat whey protein. Try Vega vegan protein for dairy-free)
1 tbsp. coconut sugar
1 tsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. dried sage
1 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. turmeric

1. Using a Magic bullet, or any blender, grind all ingredients until powdery.
2. Store in an airtight jar.
3. Use 2 tsp. per 1 cup of hot water.

Have fun making soups for winter!
Paulette.
