Paleo Hot wing sauce, or any hot sauce

Make your flour mixture with spices.   begin mixing in the liquid. this is the time you may need a little more or less depending on the type of flour you chose.  Once you have a consistency almost like pancake batter, begin dipping your cauliflower pieces in the batter.   Place coated cauliflower on a lined or greased baking sheet.  Place in the oven on 425 for 10-15 min.  Remove from the oven and place your buffalo sauce on the cauliflower.   Place back in the oven for another 10 min until you begin to see or feel it is crispy. Remove and allow to cool.  Enjoy!

A few of my favorite things

I am on the go a lot. I have my business, raise and school my babies and also practice regular self care. I like food that is functional and also satisfies me.

What do I mean by functional?  Food that does more than provide just protein carbs and fat, but also gives my body nutrients, superfoods and herbs.  I also like to know that if I pop in anywhere almost, when I forgot to plan, I have an option.  

So lets get started,

1. Addictive Wellness Chocolate:  I met Sage and Ana Blanca at the Longevity Conference put on each year by David Wolfe.  They created a sugar free chocolate with amazing herbs and superfoods. One circle chocolate is potent enough to give you a dose of what you need based on the chocolate you are eating.  There is love and magic in these chocolates, I know :) 


2. Cultured Veggies & Sauerkraut: I love taking some Brads Raw Chips and some ferments and having my lunch or snack with them together. Fermented Veggies are wonderful for your digestion and are a great probiotic source. Now I will mention they do have an off setting odor to many, but the taste and benefits are so amazing, I don't worry about the odor. 

This is a local company I just found in our Whole Foods.  I really really enjoy Harvest Roots Ferments. 

3. Kind Bars:  There is really no bar that is perfect. If they are raw they have dates and tons of sugar. If they aren't they still have tons of sugar.   Kind bars aren't perfect but they are almost everywhere.  I would rather sub the sugar for fat, and I am able to do that with there low sugar options.   Next time you have to stop while traveling and get a snack, look for Kind, there is a likelihood you will find it. 

4. Spring Water in glass: If you follow me on social media you will know weekly the kids and I go to a local spring by our house.  We add water to our yeti's and also to a 5 gallon jug. We exclusively drink it and love it.  If I am out of my morning fill up and I am in whole foods I usually grab Starkey's. If you have not drank fresh spring water, there is nothing like it. 

 I hope you can pick up or order one of the above to make your life easier and have a pleasurable sweet treat.  

You have anything you want me to try?  

Don't wait for Easter

Really when you think about it, this has been the best 4 months for candy makers!  Christmas, Valentines Day, Easter, all fill the shelves everywhere with candy. Lets be honest, if you have eaten real chocolate or the kind some of my friends make that are sugar free and also give you amazing herbs and superfoods, it is not hard to ignore the crap candy.

First I am a mom, and as any moms know sugar draws your kids in. Addi my oldest I say could live off cheese and sugar.  So I have to monitor and limit it.  Yes, we only carry organic of both but they are still sugar and dairy.   So for me to indulge her I let her make these awesome superfood eggs and she doesn't have to ask to eat them.  


 Here is her recipe, and it will make 24 eggs, depending on the mold you use. 

1 cup of raw cacao powder.

1 cup of coconut oil (virgin unrefined) 

2 tsp of spirulina 

1/2 or less of pure maple syrup

nut butter of your choice. I use almond and Addi uses peanut butter 

any other superfoods you want to add to the chocolate.  Chia seeds work great or other powders that will mix well like Maca. 

Mix the above ingredients until it is smooth. Your coconut oil may chunk up if the maple syrup is cold so you will need to place your glass bowl next to a burner on the lowest heat to smooth it all out.  

We then place a small amount in the bottom of each egg and throw it in the fridge or freezer. Once it is hard add in a small amount of nut butter, or a large amount :). Place in fridge.   Remove once it is hard and add your top layer of chocolate.  Place back in fridge and you are done once they are hard, usually around 10-15 min.  

As you can see you are only getting maple syrup that is a "negative". You could sub with stevia, honey, or xylitol.   These are perfect to replace a standard chocolate egg, or the cadbury. You have just given Reeses a run for their money.   Enjoy!
