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

Pumpkin N'Oatmeal (paleo oatmeal)

If you live where I live, from January through March there's a real good chance you'll spend your time freezing your ass off.  There really is nothing better than a hot breakfast on cold mornings.  I found the original recipe on the Girl Meets Paleo blog and I changed it up a bit.  Hell, this shit is so good, I can eat it every day all year long!  The variations you can come up with make this delicious breakfast ever-changing.  It's also full of good fats & carbs and protein. This recipe makes enough for 5 servings. 

Put in a bowl:
•1 can of full fat coconut milk
•1 can of pumpkin 
•1 cup of ground flax or coconut flour or a combination of the two
•1/2 cup pure maple syrup or honey or a combination.  If you think you need more then go for it!
•OPTIONAL: Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Vanilla, Chia seeds, Hemp seeds, frozen berries.  I put all of this in mine.  Put in however the fuck much you like.  If you don't like any of that shit then just leave it out!  It's your fucking party!  Put in what you like!

Mix the fuck out of that shit!  Get all the lumps out.

In a frying pan, toast in coconut oil:
•1 cup chopped tree nuts (walnuts, pecans, almonds etc.) Pecans are my favorite nut for this!
•10 chopped Medjool dates

Once the nuts are browned, add 1/2 cup of flaked coconut.  A few seconds is all you really need. Coconut burns fast!  If you really wanna get funky, you can candify that son of a bitch!  As soon as you turn the heat off, pour some maple syrup and vanilla over that shit!  Stir it really good then let it sit and cool.  If you decide to do this, it's best to use a stainless steel frying pan.

Divide the pumpkin mixture between 5 containers, preferably glass. I use Ball pint size square jars. Top with nut/date mixture, cover, refrigerate.  I chuck in a handful of blueberries to each serving before I put it in the fridge.

When it's time to eat, crack one egg into a serving and mix that shit up good. Microwave it for 2-3 minutes. 

Cheers!  Angie
