Having trouble with eggs? Want to make mayonnaise or salad dressings?
Here is a good alternative that is creamy, tasty, and egg-free!
I have used this technique recently to make Cracker Stackers, veggie dip and salad dressing.
To use like mayonnaise, use this guacamole base recipe:
2 ripe avocados, diced
2 tbsp MCT oils (MCT Oil or Brain Octane)
1/2 tsp Himalayan Salt (or to taste)
a squirt of lemon juice
To use as a salad dressing, use only one avocado and increase the lemon juice.
Add fresh herbs for variety. Enjoy!
Every January, resolutions are made to get organized.
Books and blogs are read. Lists are made.
Pinterest boards are updated. We dream.
Donations get sorted and sent away.
Stores have entire departments devoted to tubs, baskets, bags and more.
Feeling guilty yet? Me too.
I’m in hibernation mode and probably will not begin these activities until it’s time for Spring cleaning, but that doesn’t mean I can’t be prepared when the mood strikes.
One of my favorite tools for keeping (and retrieving the lost!) things is Mabel’s Label’s. I’ve been using their products for at least 5 years now and love them. They are cute, durable and functional. A must for children’s items! [Lost mittens are the scourge of Minnesota parents!] Mabel makes Waterproof, UV-resistant labels for just about everything:
- Clothing/Shoes (special kits for Preschoolers and Seniors)
- Sports Equipment and Bags
- Allergy Alerts and Safety ID bracelets
- Books, Bins, Canisters, Classroom and Craft Supplies
- Kitchen and Garage
- QR Barcode Storage
I recently reviewed my label supply and ordered a few items we were out of. No surprise we needed more Tag Mates™ for my son (he’s growing again!) and Skinny Minis™ for all the new Christmas gift items he carries with him (books, toys, etc.)
Just looking at all these useful products is inspirational. Let’s take a peek!
Found this on Clearance at JM Cremps, Mall of America. Score!!
Look what I found at the Mall of America yesterday. Yowsa!
Our backyard is “heavily wooded”, so we have lots of trees to choose from for this new summertime activity. We could all use a little more balance – and FUN!
Mark Sisson is a HUGE fan of slacklines! (Where else would I see such a thing?!)
Too bad it’s -14F today and we’re blanketed in snow and ice. Can’t wait until Spring to try it!
Here’s how the Pros do it:
We are planning a trip to Disney World (Florida) and are seeking advice on (AIP) Paleo Dining.
What restaurants/entrees were your favorites?
Any other helpful guidance for first-timers is also appreciated! Thank You!
I’ve had one of these immersion blenders in my kitchen for a few years now.
It’s been used for smoothies, guacamole and Paleo Mayo. Very handy that way.
Last night it demonstrated a new skill: pureeing soups. I know, I know…so many people have posted recipes for carrot, squash or creamed broccoli soup, etc, but I had never actually tried them myself. Although I’d thought it a good idea – perhaps one that was too complicated or messy.
Well, I made a basic turkey veggie soup, using up all the aging vegetables in the fridge: carrots, celery, onion, bok choy and zucchini. My usual sautéed mushrooms and onions were missing, so combined with bone broth and rather dry, bland turkey lunchmeat, it made for a bland, boring meal. [Like I said, I was using up the aging foods from the fridge...] And the boy was really turned off by the idea of diced zucchini in his soup and refused to eat it.
I did not want the food to go to waste, so I got creative and whipped out the blender (a.k.a. the magic wand) and Presto! a new meal altogether. And while I was at it, I enriched it with Bulletproof® Upgraded Collagen Protein Powder for even more gelatin goodness.
Served it up with some sweet potato chips and they loved it! Two bowls each.
Dinner saved by the Magic Wand. Harry Potter couldn’t have done it better!
A reprieve from the cold.
It’s +40F here in Minnesota.
The perfect day to build a snowman…and for his head to fall off a half hour later! LOL
Delenn and I took a nice long walk and she was so happy.
Tail was wagging all the way. *doggie smile* :D
