Lemon Loaf! for hormone balance and more…..

February 8, 2018

I’m busy creating and collecting recipes for an upcoming Cookin’ in the Country day on Breakfasts to Balance Your Hormones.  I love this one!  For breakfast today I had two small soft boiled eggs and a slice of this Lemon Loaf with tea made with fennel seeds and lemon grass.

Lemon Loaf

Lemon Loaf anyone?   How about Lemon Loaf that is so healthy it helps balance your hormones, gives you essential fatty acids, vitamin C, and protein, to name a few nutrient dense benefits. Lemon Loaf sooooo healthy you can have it for breakfast, without feeling guilty!   It also is easy to make, gluten-free, dairy-free and Paleo.
Recently I was at a dance and lemon loaf was served.   I immediately decided I had to develop one that was healthy, and here it is.  Adapted from recipes on the internet, with my own added flair.

  • 1 1/3 cups ground raw almonds
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon unrefined sea salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 large organic eggs
  • 1/3 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice (add 1 teaspoon extra for more lemon flavor)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Topping:

1/4 cup sweetened condensed coconut milk, or honey, warmed to liquid

1/3 cup organic lemon juice

1.    Line a 1.5 quart loaf pan with parchment paper and preheat oven to 350F.
2.  Grind whole almonds, and place in a medium sized bowl.
3.  Add coconut flour, sea salt, lemon zest and baking soda and combine.
4.  In a separate bowl, combine eggs, honey, lemon juice, coconut oil and vanilla.
5.  Add liquid mixture to flour mixture and stir until combined.
6.   Pour batter into the loaf pan and bake 45 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.
7.  Set loaf on a cooling rack while you make the topping.
8.  Make topping:  Combine lemon juice and coconut milk or honey.
9.  Poke holes with a toothpick all over the top of the loaf while it is still in the loaf pan, and gently pour the topping evenly over all. When cool, lift parchment paper and loaf out of pan.
To serve, cut slices in half to prevent crumbling and enjoy!

In good health,

Paulette.

Pumpkin Pancakes

December 20, 2017

 

I’ve been experimenting with drying my beautiful Cinderella pumpkins and the results are amazing.  I peeled the pumpkin, and sliced it very thin with my old Braun food processor, and dried it on trays in my dehydrator. I then made a powder in my Nutri Bullet.    One fairly large pumpkin dehydrates to a concentrated powder form and makes 1 1/2 cups!  Now THAT is nutrient dense!  Look at that beautiful orange powder, just waiting to be used when you are in a hurry and want superfood.  It stores well on my spice shelf in a closed glass jar.

My goal was to use 1 teaspoon in my smoothies, or any blended fruit or vegetable drink for a burst of vitamin A.  I decided to try and make my quick Pumpkin Pancakes using the powder, and it worked very well.   I love pancakes!  Especially pancakes that are very easy to make, loaded with whole foods, very nutritious, and made without flour.

Pumpkin Pancakes:

These are so quick and easy to make, and give us that burst of protein so important in the morning.   The two eggs provide about 12 grams of protein; the pumpkin seeds are loaded with magnesium and zinc, two essential nutrients for the immune system, as well as great unsaturated fat and fibre.  Using organic eggs contribute to getting our vitamins A and  D, and contain iositol, choline, and lecithin, all involved in balanced cholesterol metabolism. Researchers believe the lutein in eggs is absorbed immediately, unlike lutein from other sources,  due to other components in the egg, such as the lecithin. ( see Will The Real Egg Please Stand Up, What Your Doctor Doesn’t Tell You About Foods, Book 3).

1/4 cup pumpkin purée OR 1 tbsp. Dehydrated pumpkin powder
1/4 cup raw shelled pumpkin seeds
2 organic eggs
1/4 tsp. Baking soda
1/8 tsp. Celtic sea salt

1.  To rehydrate the powdered pumpkin, place in a measuring cup and add pure water to the 1/4 line and allow to sit for approximately 10 minutes.
2.   Add all ingredients to the Nutri Bullet cup or any blender and puree until no chunks of pumpkin seeds remain.
3.  Sauté in a small cast iron pan until slightly brown on both sides.
4.   I like to serve these with organic chunky peanut butter and pure maple syrup.   Any pancake topping you like will work.

Yield:  3 pancakes or 1 serving. (these keep in the fridge for a day or two if you have leftovers).


I am going to be busy for awhile dehydrating pumpkins!

Enjoy!

Paulette.


Christmas Goodies Workshop

December 11, 2017

A HUGE thank you to all of you who attended my first cooking workshop in the country!  My lovely assistant Sonia and I fed 13 people, and cooked up a storm of Christmas Goodies. We had lots of room, lots of food, and lots of fun.  I learned how to use my new space, how to use my new stove! and how many complete recipes I can actually handle in 5 hours…..    We  made it through 13.   I had lots of help throughout the day.  A workshop is not the same as a cooking class, in that there is a fair amount of information imparted about foods, sources of good food, shopping and more, as well as demonstration of cooking methods, and various pieces of equipment used to create simple, healing foods.

   Sonia and I in the kitchen.

Liz’s Breakfast Cereal

November 22, 2017

I want to thank my friend Liz for this nifty easy to make breakfast.  We’ve included the eggs to enhance the protein content.  You may exchange any of the nuts and seeds to suit your taste.  One batch makes four breakfasts for me.

Liz’s Breakfast Cereal

This cereal will keep in the fridge for several days.

1/3 cup quinoa

1/4 cup hemp hearts

1/8 cup chia seeds

1/3 cup chopped almonds

1/3 cup coconut

cinnamon

optional:  pieces of dried fruit

1 1/3 cup almond milk or milk of choice

2 scrambled eggs

  1. Stir together first six ingredients.
  2. Then add milk and eggs.
  3. Cook in rice cooker or on top of stove until quinoa is fluffy.

Serve with blueberries and coconut milk.

Optional:  maple syrup, yogurt if diet allows dairy.

This is a wonderful dairy-free, gluten-free breakfast.  Make a big batch and let all the kids choose their toppings.

 

I will be setting aside a day each month for those of you who would like to take a drive in the country and experience a day of cooking and eating foods that heal the body.  This month is all about making nutrient dense Christmas treats to replace all of those sugar, white flour, bad fat alternatives that are so plentiful this time of year.  This month is Sunday, December 10th from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00p.m. Why not gather your friends and travel together to experience wonderful foods to restore your health.

 

 

Enjoy!

Paulette.
