Preheat oven to 350 F
Mix butter, Swerve and egg in a medium sized bowl until creamy and well combined.
In a separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients.
Add to wet ingredients and mix until a stiff dough is formed.
Roll the dough into 1 1/2" balls.
Using a "cookie scooper" makes it really easy to get the right size. (If using cookie scooper, you will still need to roll the dough into tighter balls before coating with cinnamon and Swerve).
Combine the cinnamon and Swerve in a small bowl.
Roll the balls in the mixture until well coated.
Place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and flatten slightly with a couple fingers.
Bake at 350 F for 12 minutes.
*DO NOT OVER BAKE! They should be JUST starting to crack on the edges.
Allow to cool slightly on a cookie sheet before moving to a cooling rack.
WHO SAYS you can't have yummy treats on a Keto Diet or Candida Detox??? These bite size treats are the perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth without cheating on your detox!!! They are sugar-free, grain-free and full of protein and good fats.
For the cookies:
3/4 cup almond butter, smooth
1/2 cup Swerve, granulated
1 tsp alcohol-free vanilla extract
1 cup almond flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 pinch pink Himalayan sea salt
For the filling:
1/2 cup Lily's chocolate chips
1/4 cup smooth almond butter
1/2 tsp alcohol-free vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 F and line a 24 cup mini muffin pan with liners or grease with coconut oil.
In a large bowl, beat together egg, almond butter, Swerve and vanilla until smooth. In a separate bowl, combine almond flour, baking soda and salt. Stir into the wet ingredients until fully combined. The dough will be thick and greasy. Press the dough into evenly-sized balls and place in the mini muffin cups. Then use the back of a 1/2 tsp measuring spoon to make a dent in the center.
Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes until just set.
Make the "kiss":
While the cookies bake, melt the chocolate chips and almond butter in a double boiler until JUST melted and smooth. Stir in the vanilla once melted. Wait until the filling cools enough that it's the consistency of thick frosting. Then spoon the chocolate into a Ziploc bag and cut the corner off. Squeeze a small amount into each cookie to form a "kiss".
Cool in fridge until the chocolate firms up. Best served at room temperature
This is a great substitute for potato soup!!
No simple starch or carb crash, and heaps of cruciferous love for your liver!
Heat oil in large pot. Add onion and cook over medium high heat for a few minutes. Add the rest of the veggies and continue to saute' until they begin to soften. Add salt and broth. Continue to cook until veggies are soft. Add parsley at the end. Remove Bay Leaf. Carefully transfer to a blender (reserve some chunks if you like a chunkier chowder). You may need to do this in a few batches depending on the size of your blender. Add 2 heaping Tbsp coconut cream... add more if you like it creamier. Salt and pepper to taste.
Makes ~4 large (meal-size) bowls of soup.
Preheat oven to 450F.
Place asparagus, onion & smashed garlic in a large glass baking dish or cookie sheet. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 12 minutes, or until asparagus is soft, stirring once. Remove from oven and transfer asparagus, onions and garlic to a blender. Add broth and coconut milk, adding more coconut milk if you like it creamier. Blend until smooth. (You might have to do this part in batches depending on the size of your blender). If you have a Vitamix, Blend on HIGH for 3-4 minutes until hot or transfer soup to a large pot to finish heating. Add salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with parsley.
This is for you Candida Detoxers, Paleo people or Keto crazies ;)
If you think about it... potatoes have little flavor & are LOADED with starch (aka: sugar). It's the produce, spices and mayo that make potato salad so good, not the potatoes! This is a YUMMY and MUCH HEALTHIER alternative! Bring it to your next picnic or potluck, but don't tell them it's really cauliflower... They'll never know ;) What they don't know (in this case) definitely WON'T hurt them... heehee ;)
1 Large head of Cauliflower, broken into equal-size pieces
1/4+ cup Parsley, chopped
3 Green Onions, chopped
1/2 small Red Onion, diced
6 Radishes, thinly quartered and sliced
3-4 Celery stalks, chopped
1 cup HEALTHY MAYONNAISE or Primal Kitchen Mayo
1 tsp Himalayan (pink) Sea Salt
1+ tsp dry dill
2-3 pinches dry red pepper
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
1/4+ tsp Paprika
2 tsp Annie's Mustard (or any other mustard that is made with Apple Cider Vinegar)
NOTE: I like mine a bit more spicy so I measure generously... a rounded (not heaping) measurement on all spiced except salt. Find your own balance of spices to taste ;)
Boil or steam cauliflower pieces until tender but not mushy.
Drain and pour cooked cauliflower into ice bath immediately to stop the cooking process. The ice will melt or mostly melt.
Drain again and set aside, removing any remaining ice cubes if necessary.
Prepare all fresh produce as directed above.
Combine Mayo with all spices and mustard.
Roughly chop cauliflower and pat dry before putting it into a large serving bowl.
Add all produce and mayo mixture. Mix well.
Adjust seasonings to taste.
Add butter, Swerve, cinnamon and cayenne pepper to large sauce pan and heat on medium-high heat until the butter is browned well (just not burnt) and the Swerve is COMPLETELY melted. While this is cooking, spread your nuts evenly onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Pour your melted "sauce" over the nuts, sprinkle with pink salt & place in fridge and allow to cool & harden. Once your nuts harden, break into pieces and place in a decorative jar or small gift bags to make an adorable, healthy gift for Christmas, Easter, birthday parties, or just to keep on hand for your family!!
NOTE: This works better on a gas stove. If you use an electric stove, finding the balancing between melting the Swerve fully but not burning it is a bit tricky. If you make this and the sauce never hardens, you didn't cook it long enough. If it tastes burnt or gets black (instead of darker brown), then you went too long or had the heat too high.
When adding coconut oil to any recipe, you add anti-bacterial (antibiotic), anti-viral, anti-fungal & overall anti-microbial, medicinal & fat-burning nutrition to your creation :) With the extra peppermint essential oil, also a powerful antibiotic/antiviral/anti-microbial, you now have a powerful medicinal drink that tastes AMAZING and won't harm your "good bacteria" (probiotics)!! AND the peppermint will sure open up your sinuses!!
SICK?? Doctor's orders.... drink healthy hot cocoa :) How fun is that?!
OPTION 1: Combine all ingredients in a small sauce pan and heat to desired temperature, adding the collagen powder at the end once the heat is turned off.
OPTION 2 (healthiest): Instead of heating this mixture on the stovetop you can step up the nutritional content by blending all ingredients in a high-powered blender, on high speed, the coconut oil/butter and collagen powder to make it a frothy/creamy "chocolate latte"! Blend on high until it heats to desired temperature
.NOTE: Option 2 is a great way to get your daily coconut oil in!!
Enjoy a healthy, medicinal dose of caprylic acid (anti-fungal/anti-viral/anti-bacterial; thyroid fuel; fat-burning; brain nourishing) goodness from coconut oil and the good, saturated, nourishing, digestible fats from the grass-fed butter. If you add the collagen powder, technically this "drink" is a "meal" balanced with fantastic fats and proteins... and ZERO sugar crash! This makes for a healthy addition to any breakfast, and could be considered a healthy, small mid-day meal. There is a lot of medicinal value and nourishment in this brain-nourishing, fat-burning treat!!
*Feel free to use Stevia, xylitol or monkfruit to taste, if on Candida Detox, or raw honey if you're not.
You're welcome! ;)
OR you could call these "Healthy Andes Mints" :)
These are a patient favorite!!!
1/2 cup coconut butter
2 Tbsp organic virgin coconut oil
4 Tbsp raw honey (or liquid Stevia to taste if on Candida Detox)
1/4 tsp PEPPERMINT ESSENTIAL OIL
1 bag Lilly's Dark Chocolate Chips
1/3 cup organic coconut oil
1-1/2 Tbsp raw honey
1/4-1/2 tsp PEPPERMINT ESSENTIAL OIL
Line a mini muffin tin with 12 liners and set aside.
FOR THE WHITE LAYER
In a medium bowl, combine coconut butter, coconut oil, honey, and peppermint essential oil. Stir until smooth. Put a small amount in each muffin liner and press into the bottom so they are even. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes to harden.
FOR THE CHOCOLATE LAYER
Combine the chocolate chips, coconut oil, and honey in a pan over medium heat until smooth. You just want to warm it enough that there are no lumps, but don’t boil it or heat it too long. Turn off the heat and add the PEPPERMINT ESSENTIAL OIL.
Take the muffin tin out of the freezer and spoon the chocolate mixture on top of the white layer. Place back in the freezer for 30 minutes or until completely hard. Store in a bag or covered dish in the fridge or freezer.
These are great to have on hand for a quick, healthy chocolate (magnesium) fix that won't spike your blood sugar ;)
NOTE: You can also skip the white layer if your in a hurry and just use the chocolate part.
*Recipe adapted from goldenbarrel.com.
PLEASE DON'T BE INTIMIDATED by this recipe. It looks long, but is quite easy. There are 2 crust options plus a few things that need explanation. I've also listed some options for toppings to get you thinking... get creative & let us know if you come up with another topping or alternative we can share! Eat it for breakfast!!! It's 100% healthy- loaded with protein, good fats, fiber & more :)
CRUST (cooked) - safe for Candida Detox:
1 3/4 cup almond flour
¼ cup coconut flour
¼ tsp sea salt (pink)
1 Tbsp ground flaxseed
1 Tbsp raw coconut oil
1 egg (large)
3 Tbsp cold cubed butter
Hot water (if needed)
Preheat Oven to 350F. Grease a pie pan with coconut oil and set aside.
Start your teapot in case you need warm water. Mix together the almond flour, buckwheat flour, coconut flour, ground flax seeds and salt in a large mixing bowl. Next, add your Tablespoon of coconut oil and mix. Beat the egg and cube your cold butter and add them to the dough one at a time. Knead your dough. If the dough is too crumbly, add 1 Tablespoon at a time of warm water until you get the proper consistency to start rolling your dough. I used 3 Tablespoons of warm water.
Form your dough into a ball, sprinkle some (almond or buckwheat) flour on a large piece of parchment paper and roll the dough out. You can also just knead the dough and press it directly into your pie pan. Bake at 350 until golden brown. Remove from oven, let cool, then add your filling!
CRUST (raw) -if you've been cleared to eat dates:
2 cups raw nuts (100% pecans or half pecan/half walnut is great)
2 cups dates (pitted)
1 pinch sea salt (pink)
Grease your pie pan with coconut oil. This prevents the crust from sticking.
Add the nuts, dates & salt into a food processor and blend until well processed "dough". Roll your ball of dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper with a rolling pin until your crust is flattened to the size of your pie pan. Place your pie pan upside down on your crust (top parchment paper removed) and then quickly flip your pie pan over, holding the crust into the pan. Press & form the dough into your pie pan. Don't bake it (it's RAW crust). You're ready to add your filling!
RAW "CREAM CHEESE" FILLING:
3 cups Raw cashews, soaked 4+ hours
3/4 cup Virgin coconut oil
3 Tbsp. Vanilla extract (alcohol-free)
Sweetener: 4-6 droppers liquid Vanilla Stevia (to taste) OR Monkfruit (to taste) - neither will feed yeast; use RAW honey (to taste) if you're not on a Candida Detox.
1+ cup Fresh pressed lemon juice
1/2 cup purified water
1 tsp. NATURE'S SUNSHINE Psyllium Hulls Combination Powder
Add all ingredients to a high powered blender and blend until you have a whipped cream cheese consistency. If using stevia, start with only 2 droppers full of liquid vanilla stevia and only 1/4 cup of water. You can always add more sweetener or water, as needed. Pour the filling over your crust and refrigerate (or freeze) at least 3 hours. Your pie will keep 1 week max in the fridge and slightly longer in the freezer. DO NOT bake/cook this pie. Refrigeration or freezing sets it and then it's ready to eat!
Fresh Berry: Add fresh or defrosted berries to a blender, chopping or pureeing to whatever consistency you like. Add liquid Stevia or Swerve to add sweetness (if necessary).
Chocolate drizzle: Lightly melt together equal parts raw coconut oil & raw cacao powder over LOW heat, plus (sweetener of your choice): liquid vanilla Stevia or Swerve or Monkfruit, to taste. Add almond butter if you want "chocolate-peanut butter" topping ;) Drizzle to your liking.

1 bag Lily's dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup virgin coconut oil
1/2 cup (raw) unsweetened cashew or almond butter
Splash of alcohol-free vanilla extract
3+ droppers liquid stevia, to taste
Melt all ingredients, except nuts, on the stove over low-medium heat, just until everything melts together smoothly. Be careful not to overcook and destroy nutritional content. When barely melted, stir in trail mix until well coated. Spoon your mixture into small bite-sized baking cups. Stir occasionally as the chocolate tends to settle on the bottom. Refrigerate or freeze until hardened.
NOTE: Because of the coconut oil, these do melt quickly. Store in refrigerator (or freezer) until ready to serve. Use less coconut oil if you want the chocolate mix less "runny" and your treats to freeze harder.
Makes approx. 100 pieces but they do FREEZE WELL!!! ;)
These are loaded with fat AND protein and will not give you a sugar crash. This is a whole food dessert. Keep the fridge (or freezer) stocked with these for quick, healthy snacks or a 911 breakfast or pre-workout snack (they're loaded with nutrition, protein & good fat!)
They are ideal for kids, diabetics, Candida patients, and ANYONE who desires to maintain a fun, healthy life that includes CHOCOLATE!!! Who said healthy people don't have FUN??!!
NOTE: Lily's Dark Chocolate Chips DO have a trace of milk in them (these are a no-no for those who have significant asthma or eczema or who have a significant dairy allergy).
Melt all ingredients on the stove over low-medium heat, just until everything melts together smoothly. Be careful not to overcook and destroy nutritional content. Then add your mixture to mini silicone cupcake molds or mini cupcake molds with paper cupcake liners if you want bite-sized treats. Large cupcake molds will yield a larger "peanut butter cup" (2-4 bites). You can also pour into a foil-lined square baking pan. Freeze or refrigerate until firm. Lift firm chocolate out of pan and cut like fudge. Store in the fridge (or freezer) and enjoy with zero guilt!!!
These are loaded with fat AND protein and will not give you a sugar crash. This is a whole food dessert. They are ideal for kids, diabetics, Candida patients, and ANYONE who desires to maintain a fun, healthy life that includes CHOCOLATE!!! If you notice any bloating or digestive distress using xylitol, try them again using stevia. Xylitol makes some people bloat-y ;)
NOTE: Lily's Dark Chocolate Chips DO have a trace of milk in them (these are a no-no for those who have asthma, eczema or who have a known/significant dairy allergy)

Optional: Serve with strawberries and HEALTHY WHIPPED CREAM!!!
It's only partially "raw"... but it's amazingly delicious, healthy and totally legal for someone on a Candida Detoox! If you get bloated or crampy it's likely because of the sugar alcohols in the Lily's chocolate chips OR the small amount in the crust. SOME people, especially O Blood Types, cannot digest a lot of sugar alcohol at once. You can try to take a Tablespoon of RAW apple cider vinegar or 2 enzyme capsules to assist your body in digestion. I'm an O Blood Type and this recipe doesn't bother me at all ;) Proactazyme is available through my Online Store if you need an enzyme recommendation. EnJOY with zero guilt!!!!
If you know my dear friend Careen, be sure to thank her!! This was HER CREATION and labor of love for you guys!!! She serves selflessly to make this website & practice function more smoothly.
In a large saucepan (that has a lid), begin to melt your butter over low-medium heat on the stove top. Add your chicken, drizzle with some melted butter, and then dust the chicken breasts/thighs heavily with sea salt and garlic. Next, add your capers, lemon, salt & garlic to the butter, to taste. (I LOVE this simple sauce) Let this recipe simmer 20 - 30 min on low heat, covered, until the chicken is thoroughly cooked and the flavor has a chance to set in.
