GRILLED PINEAPPLE + COCONUT CREAM🍍🥥|| Here’s your much healthier 4th of July recipe that’s PERFECT for a day of grilling! Super easy & people always rave about this recipe when I’ve whipped it up. Enjoy & Happy 4th!! 🎇🎆
#monimeals #monitreats 
SERVINGS
2-4
INGREDIENTS
For the Marinade: •1 tbs coconut oil (can also use olive) •1 tsp  ground cinnamon •2 1/2 tbs dark honey •1 vanilla bean (can be optional - but I love it here) •1 tbs of fresh lime juice •1 firm yet ripe pineapple, can buy already cut
For Garnish (Optional): •1 tbs dark rum •1 tbs grated lime zest from the lime
Coconut Cream: •1 cup heavy cream, you could use store-bought but look for non-hyrdogenated oil. Add 1/2 cup cream of coconut (such as Coco Lopez), optional

DIRECTIONS
Marinade:
1. In a large bowl - combine the oil, cinnamon, honey, vanilla bean (if using), and lime juice; whisk to well to blend together. Set aside.
2. Cut off the crown of leaves and the base of the pineapple. Stand the pineapple upright. Use a large and sharp knife to pare off the skin, cutting downward just below the surface in long, vertical strips. Stand the peeled pineapple upright and cut it in half lengthwise. Place each pineapple half cut-side down and cut it lengthwise into four long wedges; slice away the core. NOTE: Or you can slice it in rings too.
3. Place the pineapple in the bowl with the marinade and stir to coat the pineapple. Heat up the grill.
4. Place on the grill and cook about 3 to 4 mins. You can baste once or twice with the remaining marinade. Turn the fruit and move it to a cooler part of the grill or reduce the heat. Baste again with the marinade. Grill until the pineapple is tender and golden, about 3 more mins.
5. Remove the pineapple from the grill and place on a platter or individual serving plates. Next, brush with the rum - if using. Last, sprinkle with the lime zest. Serve hot or warm!
For the Coconut Cream:
1. With an electric mixer, beat the heavy cream and cream of coconut until soft peaks form. TIP: You can also use this same cream again and just serve with your favorite fresh berries all season long!
So perfect for an end of a summer meal with friends. Enjoy! Link in profile

VANILLA FRENCH TOAST
INGREDIENTS
• 2-3 slices of gf bread or Paleo bread, or bread of choice
• 2 eggs, lightly beaten
• 2-4 tbs of almond milk, see how thick the mixture gets
• 2 tbs coconut flour, or flour of choice
• 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder, I use @sfh • ½ tsp of pure vanilla extract
• a grind or two of Himalayan sea salt, or just salt
• a dash of cinnamon
Serve with fresh raspberries and banana slices (or fruit of choice)
Drizzle with raw honey or syrup
Optional Toppings- yogurt or your favorite nut butter

INSTRUCTIONS
	1	In a med bowl mix the dry ingredients; protein powder, salt, cinnamon, and coconut flour.
	2	Next add in the 2 eggs, the almond milk (see how much you need, start with 2 tbs), and vanilla extract. Whisk well until most clumps are gone. (You will have a few). 3	Place this mixture in a shallow bowl. Add one slice at a time. Let the bread soak up all the mixture. You can prick your fork a few times to let is soak in more. Flip and repeat.
	4	Heat a pan over med heat. I use coconut oil, (or oil of choice) and when warmed; add the slice. Let cook for about 1-2 mins each side. NOTE: because of the protein powder it can burn easier than you would think - so watch it.
	5	Now repeat the process. Add the next slice of bread in the egg mixture. Coat both sides. Add more oil to the pan if needed and cook 1-2 mins each side. Remember to double this if you are making more than on serving.
	6	Place on a plate. Add your fruit of choice. I use fresh raspberries and sliced bananas. Sprinkle with a dust of cinnamon and a drizzle maple syrup or honey over. Can also use a BIG dollop of your favorite yogurt or nut butter. ENJOY!

We have to be the CEO of our health! Why Food Sustainability Matters and 10 Things You Can Do About It.

Most of the food found in the grocery store is the product of an unsustainable food system. Once you learn what's really going on, it’s nearly impossible to not change a few things! 
SUSTAINABLE FOODS DON’T NEED LABELS BECAUSE THEY…
• are real foods that our bodies were designed to eat.
• are healthy for us, the soil, and the animals.
• do not harm the environment.
• are humane for both the workers and the animals.
• provide a fair wage to the farmer without the use of government subsidies.
• support the local economy instead of large corporations.
Sustainable food is what people ate for thousands of years, up until 20th century.

Here are just 10 easy tips to start get started: 
1. Learn To Cook
2. Eat Locally
3. Eat Seasonally
4. Preserve The Harvest
5. Grow Something...Anything. It’s so rewarding! 
6. Replace Store Bought Convience Food and Make Your Own
7. Buy Fair-Trade
8. Know The Cost Of Cheap Food
9.Choose Organic 
10. Be Willing To Give Up Convenience - This may be the hardest part of changing the way you eat. On the other hand, it forces you to simplify your food in a way that promotes health and flavor. The simple truth is sustainable food does not outsource it’s preparation.
Eating mindfully may take a bit more effort, but the rewards – for our family and their future – are too big to pass up.
We have far more power than we think (especially as parents) and it starts with us!

I pop these in my mouth instead of 11 PB eggs. A healthy treat that you can eat this Easter (or anytime) instead that are darn tasty with far better ingredients for you! Secret ingredient too is white beans and you wouldn’t know if I didn’t tell ya. Try them!

Bite size, portion control, easy to make, pure ingredients, and they taste amazing. No butter, no eggs, no oil and no white flour or white refined sugar. Happy Easter 🐣. Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS
* 1 can garbanzos or white beans (drained and rinsed)

* 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce, I like to use cinnamon flavor too
* 1/4 of a banana

* 1 tbs of Nutritional Yeast, also secret ingredient and so good for you!
* 1/4 tsp baking soda
* 1/2 tsp baking powder
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 1/4 cup coconut sugar, or can use brown sugar
* 5-8 drops of liquid Stevia, if you do not have this, you can use 3 tbs maple syrup or coconut sugar to your level
* 1-3 dashes of cinnamon
* 1/4 cup chocolate chips- can us mini chocolate chips too or vegan chips
* 1/4 cup of peanut butter chips
* optional- then top each with a mini peanut butter cup (@traderjoes carries them) - this is why they are amazing, look for vegan if needed
DIRECTIONS
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Blend everything (except the chips) very well in a food processor. Then mix in chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and stir together.
3. Now using a mini muffin tin, spray it with cooking spray, and place the batter into each slot.  Add a mini peanut butter cup on the top.
4. Cook at 350F for around 20-25 minutes. You do not want them to burn so keep your eye on it. Let stand at least 10 minutes before removing from the pan.  They form best over a day or so. ENJOY!
