Homemade Chocolate with Cocoa Butter, what could be lovelier? I am not an impulse shopper. But this time something changed. I was actually in the market for chocolate molds when I stumbled upon these chocolate frog molds. I almost felt guilty choosing them over the traditional bon bon shapes. After all, the frogs are a bit distracting, a bit juvenile… …

COCOA BUTTER Pound Cake {dairy-free!, Paleo, GAPS, flourless}

Megan I may receive a commission if you purchase through links in this post, Treats, Whole Food Recipes 22 Comments

The main reason to make Cocoa Butter Pound Cake is that it’s delicious! Like, it’s hard to stop eating it. It’s also dairy-free, yet tastes better than butter (hardly possible, I know). It’s awesome for those of us on Paleo, GAPS or even nut-free diets, but can also be made with a beautiful streusel topping. It’s flourless and grain-free. Lastly, …

I use cooked carrots in this recipe! (So, it is gentle for healing diets, with GAPS cultured and AIP non-dairy variations.)  Cooked carrots aren’t that weird in a milkshake or smoothie.  Think cooked pumpkin! Pumpkin shakes, pumpkin ice cream, carrot cake… and we make and serve Carrot-Cinnamon frozen yogurt at our ice cream shops, not to mention our Bunny Food …

I have lots of experience with getting through a night of coughing– my daughter’s coughing.  Laying awake listening to her cough, not sleeping.  Getting up with her.  Talking to the naturopathic doctor in the middle of the night. My daughter’s now 16.  But from the time when she was teeny her colds’ “go-tos” were her lungs and a cough.  She …

Rosebud Hibiscus Tea tastes awesome, but as with all herbal teas, there’s more: it treats depression, constipation, anxiety, insomnia, diabetes; it provides immune boosting AND a record-high dose of antioxidants. Will it help you feel better? Better is a relative word.  I have definitely felt BETTER on coffee.  It’s a drug-high-happy.  These flowers aren’t going to do that for you; …
