I adapted this from the "Raw Milk Tonic" recipe in the book "Eat Fat, Lose Fat" by Sally Fallon and Mary Enig. Actually my only change was to add a dash of nutmeg. This tastes very much like regular holiday eggnog, but much healthier and SOOOOOO easy! This drink is intended to build health.
I buy raw milk at the health food store.
I am trying to add more coconut oil to my diet and came up with this easy topping for steamed veggies, salmon, or any dish of your choice. I use a brand of organic ginger tamari (soy sauce with ginger flavor added) plus virgin coconut oil. I don't have specific amounts of each ingredient, because I'm just going for a certain texture. Since I'm still experimenting with this, let me know of any additional ingredients you may put in to "kick it up."
I came up with this after buying some meyer (sweet) lemons. It is basically water with a combination of meyer lemon juice and regular (sour) lemon juice. Sometimes I add a little Truvia. You don't need a sweetener but can add your sweetener of choice if you like. The amounts are very inexact and depend on your taste. I generally use the juice of one meyer lemon with a smaller amount of the sour lemon juice. I am giving the directions for one serving.
Caution – this contains raw egg. I made this up when I wanted something like a breakfast shake that tasted like cheesecake. This is thicker than a smoothie because of the larger proportion of cottage cheese to yogurt, so I call it a “soup.” Makes one generous serving.
Use crisp apples for this (organic gala or pink lady apples are my personal favorites). Sometimes I eat this plain or mix in some coconut cream concentrate, available at tropicaltraditions.com. I also like to vary the spices (pumpkin pie spice, cardamom, etc.).
Yummy recipe from my friend's mother. Posted for safekeeping. Recipe amounts are somewhat flexible. The cooking time shown is for hamburgers. I don't have a specific baking time for the meatloaf, because I usually make this as hamburgers. A flatter meatloaf needs less baking time than a taller one.
These yummy appetizers can be served on a buffet table or as party snacks. Use organic ingredients if you can find them. The amounts given are very approximate because I never really measure this. While the salt is optional, I like to add it because it adds another layer of flavor and contrasts with the sweetness of the dates. This tastes good whether you use a lot of dates or just a few - your choice.
Though I usually make this "light," I did include a couple of optional enrichments. A note about sweetener: I used to make this with agave nectar but am now using Truvia. I prefer to add sweetener after cooking, but you may want to add the sweetener while the pudding is cooking.
