Avocado soup is perfect for hot summer days when you don’t feel like sweating over a stove. Creamy avocados and rich coconut milk both provide plenty of healthy saturated fat which may be the ideal fuel source for our body providing many healthy benefits for our immunity and brain function.
Every once in awhile, I like to give the community a recipe that might not fall into the Gut or Cleanse guidelines; a treat. Something to enjoy post cleanse when you're still trying to incorporate many of the principle of Clean but might be a bit more lenient on ingredients. This cake, which I discovered on one of my favourite food and photography blogs, Roost, contains eggs (lots of them!) but even for those who may have a sensitivity to eggs, like myself, I find that when they're in something baked, they're fine. And of course, as we've mentioned before, the higher quality (pastured, local) eggs you use, the better they are for you. The large number of eggs is why the fiber rich coconut flour works so well here.
Summer is in full swing everywhere and that means the kids are out of school, and there are beach adventures, road trips, visitors and celebrations. There are lazy summer mornings as well as jam-packed days. This means you need fuel for all of the above and these are my absolute favorite. Waffles are fun and celebratory, perfect for family brunches, breakfast for dinner, unique desserts or you can even freeze them to use as needed for snacks on the go. They only require a waffle iron (available in many different sizes and prices, I've seen them for as little as 20 dollars), and they hold a variety of toppings OR you can put the toppings right inside the waffles as we've done here.
