About Me

I started this blog to keep track of my kitchen creations. I love cooking and eating. In 2008 I was diagnosed with RA. Food started becoming a huge problem. I needed to find a better way to eat the flavors I love. All the recipes I create are driven by my desire to eat good food that won't create extra pain and inflammation in my internal ecosystem. While the recipes are wholesome, the language is not. I swear. I use the word 'fuck'. A lot! I make no apologies for that. It's just a fair warning. I'm raw and real. Happy cooking! Even happier eating! Cheers! Angie

Maple Walnut Freeze

For the past 7 weeks I've been doing a crossfit challenge that incorporates fitness and nutrition. The diet level I chose is pretty strict, basically strict paleo. In the need for something sweet, I got to creating again. 

In a food processor put:

6 bananas
1 can of full-fat coconut milk
12 medjool dates
1 cup of pure maple syrup

Process on high until smooth. Pour into a freezer-proof bowl. Mix in 1/2 cup cacao nibs and 1 cup of chopped raw walnuts. You can alter the amounts of these 2 ingredients if you want.  Cover and freeze. Stir it every hour or so. You may need to let it soften a bit before you eat it.
