I am excited to announce that this week I am giving away a copy of an eBook by Kate Tietje from Modern Alternative Mama. This is a great read for anyone who is pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant. Kate explains a lot of the things every pregnant woman is wondering about and it is written in a very easy to read format. My favorite section of the book is “Sneaky ways to eat superfoods.” The strategies that she lists in this section are all really good ways to get children to eat some of these superfoods as well. Personally, I have been using the same strategies to get these foods into my daughter’s diet.
The recipes in this book are easy and delicious. All of them are great for everyone, not only pregnant and nursing moms. One recipe I made from the book was the Coconut Chocolate Nut Candy which is so delicious! I have been looking for some good recipes that use raw coconut oil so that I could get it into my diet and my daughter’s diet without just eating it on a spoon, which is not very appealing. This recipe is really good for you too so even though it tastes like candy its really a nutritious snack. Here is the recipe:
Coconut Chocolate Nut Candy
1/3 c. coconut oil
3 tbsp. raw honey
1 tbsp. raw cacao powder or carob powder
¼ c. crispy almonds, chopped
¼ c. shredded, unsweetened coconut
Spoon the coconut oil, raw honey, and raw cacao powder into a bowl and mix together. Chop the almonds in a food processor by pulsing only 2-3 times. Add the almonds and coconut to the mixture and stir together. Spoon into mini muffin tins, candy molds, or ice cube trays and freeze. Pop out and enjoy!
We all loved these candies!
There are more great recipes in Kate’s book that you will love to experiment with. I know I am enjoying it.
