I don’t usually put a lot of recipes on here, but I have recently learned how to make a super easy breakfast “cereal” that is totally compliant with the Advanced Cellular Healing Diet (along with a lot of other diets), and it’s super yummy.  Since figuring out what to eat on this diet can be really tricky, especially for breakfast, I thought I’d share.  Maybe someone else will find it helpful.

Almond Coconut Cereal:

Ingredients:

Almonds (about 1-2 handfuls, per serving)

Coconut Milk

Coconut Flakes (be sure to get unsweetened, the finer it is ground the better in my opinion)  (Optional)

Other Flavors as desired (Optional)

Stevia or Xylitol (optional)

Directions:

Put the almonds into a food processor with the metal S blade and run it until they are ground but still a little chunky.  They should be a bit chunkier than almond meal. (for best nutritional value, you should use almonds that have been soaked and then dried, I usually forget to do my almonds though, so I often just use regular ones)

Add a handful of coconut, if desired.  This is optional, sometimes I do it with the coconut, sometimes with out.  I recommend putting the coconut in if you are not using any other flavorings.  Turn the food processor back on just long enough to mix it all together well.

In a separate container, mix your coconut milk together (it seperates as it sits in the can).

Pour almond mixture into a bowl, spoon on coconut milk and mix together (do not use the entire can, it will be WAY too much, unless you are making this for an entire family.  Usually about 1/4 of a can is about right.  Stir until it all blends together.  It will look really pasty and a bit yucky honestly.  If it is a really thick paste, add another spoonful of coconut milk.

Heat.  I use the microwave, although it would probably be healthier done on the stove.  I microwave for 1 minute.  This will melt the coconut milk and make it look much more like cereal in milk.  You’ll want to have the milk above the level of the “cereal” or it will get really dry as you eat it.  Add any vanilla or other natural extracts that you would like.  If you aren’t strictly on the advanced diet, you can add in dried fruit too.  If needed, sweeten with a bit of stevia or Xylitol.  I like mine kind of sweet, but it only takes a TINY bit of stevia.

I’ve tried adding carob chips, but found they didn’t affect the flavor much.  One of these days I’m going to try cocoa powder and see if that makes it chocolatey 🙂

Real Canadian Bacon

I am so excited, I found a recipe for REAL Canadian bacon. Of course they don’t call it Canadian bacon in Canada and it doesn’t even resemble the stuff they call Candian Bacon in the US, but rumor has it that this is supposed to be what it’s modeled after. Anyways, it’s called peameal bacon.
