If you have earned your treat…

You must try this awesome recipe! Post a comment below and let me know how you go! Instead of buying sugar laden chocolate, make Paleo chocolate instead simply by melting organic coconut oil and adding raw organic cacao powder and organic stevia to taste. I personally would also replace the peanut butter with almond butter as peanuts do not hold much nutritional value.

IMG_4292

  • Squid sourced from an area of the ocean that you know is clean and not over fished
  • About 2 tablespoons of organic cold pressed coconut oil
  • Gluten free rice crumbs
  • Organic or free range eggs
  • Pepper
  • Himalayan rock salt
  • Lemon
  • Stainless steel fry pan. Stay away from teflon and aluminium, they are toxic to your body!

Prepare two bowls, one with the whisked eggs and the other with the rice crumbs.

Place the sliced squid into the egg then coat with rice crumbs.

Place in fry pan with melted & heated organic coconut oil.

Cook until rice crumbs become brown and season with salt, pepper and lemon.

A vinaigrette rocket salad goes perfectly with this dish!

Grain Free Pizza!

Yesterday I had a craving for a beautiful, grain free, home-made pizza!

Below is the recipe I followed. However, I added almond meal with the coconut flour. I tried making it once with only coconut flour and the base fell apart and didn’t go crunchy. I also used organic coconut cream instead of whole milk as I didn’t have any organic milk. I rubbed organic butter over the baking paper and the base did not stick. It turned out perfectly!

Servings: 1 small pizza
Preparation Time: 20 minutes

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed or minced
  • 1 cup whole milk or coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour, sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Beat eggs in a medium sized bowl. Mix in milk and garlic.

Add remaining ingredients and beat into the milk mixture. The dough will be thinner in consistency then regular dough (more like a batter). Add just a bit more coconut flour if needed. The dough needs to be spreadable and thin but not extremely liquid-y like pancake batter.

Spread thinly and evenly on a pizza pan or cookie sheet lined with greased parchment paper (parchment paper is a must require!! This sticks terribly!).

Bake for 12-20 minutes in preheated oven. Crust is done when fully cooked through and bottom edges begin to brown.

Remove crust from oven and turn over. Carefully peel parchment paper from the bottom of the crust and place crust back on parchment paper with the bottom side up.

Top your pizza with sauce and whatever else you would like. Bake for another 5-10 minutes, depending on the toppings.
