Gluten Free Chicken Strips

Originally Posted @: When I was a kid it was always a treat to go out to eat! Every time I would order the same thing: chicken strips and fries. I can still smell the greasy deliciousness. Now if I were to order that, oh boy would my stomach ache! All that GMO oil and gluten-filled breading. Now my kids are getting older and wise to these kinds of treats. I am not one to deprive them of some good old fashioned kid favorites so I came up with a healthy recipe of my own that does not have gluten and is made with healthy fats. My kids love them, and so does my husband. Now, gluten free chicken strips have become part of our regular meal rotation! Ingredients: 1 (14oz) package chicken breasts, sliced into thick strips 2 pastured eggs 1 Tbsp water 3/4 cup rice flour    where to find 1/2 tsp salt 1/4 tsp pepper 1 cup coconut oil for frying  here is the kind we use Directions:  Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, add coconut

Paleo Coconut Macaroons

Originally Posted @: My Grandma had a sweet tooth and she gave it to me! Her favorite treat was a coconut macaroon and a cup of coffee. I remember thinking she was crazy for liking cookies made from coconut! Not any more. We use so much coconut our house that I just had to try making them. I did not want to add sugar and junk though, so I made my own recipe: Paleo coconut macaroons. This recipe is a much healthier variation because they contain immune boosting raw honey, healthy fat in the coconut, and quality protein with the pastured eggs. Not to say these are a balanced meal in one little cookie, but they are a much healthier option if you are going to have a sweet treat! Ingredients:  6 egg whites (preferrably from pastured eggs) 1/2 cup raw honey where to find 3 cups shredded coconut where to find 1 Tbsp vanilla Equipment: Dehydrator like this Hand mixer Cookie scooper like this Directions:  Beat egg whites in a large, clean an

It’s this heat, of course, that draws so many to add chili peppers to their meals, and it’s also the reason for their many medicinal properties, including pain relief. Chili peppers’ heat comes from capsaicin, a compound produced to protect the peppers from fungal attack.1 Capsaicin is colorless and odorless, but when you eat it, capsaicin tricks your brain into perceiving heat where it touches your body.2 Birds, interestingly, are not affected by capsaicin, and thi

3-Ingredient Homemade Fudge

GMO beet sugar, sweetened condensed milk, hersheys milk chocolate. You get the idea. I also love easy recipes. So, in a hurry to head out the door to teach an essential oils class I whipped this one up. It was an experiment that turned out amazing and kept my attendees quite happy throughout my class! The essential oil is optional, and you can also try different flavors: lavender, lemon, tangerine. But, seriously c mon, it s 3-ingredient homemade fudge, how can you go wrong with this one! Ingredients:  3 cups chocolate chips (we use this kind because they are gluten, soy and dairy free) 1 cup milk of your choice, we use raw cows milk 1/4 cup grass-fed butter (if you can t find it in stores, you can order this kind online) 20 dro
