Cinnamon Apple Scones

So I found out the other day from one of my Instagram followers (@juicingtips) that I have what is called a masticating juicer. This means that the slow auger, is a like a large drill bit or screw. As it turns, it crushes the fruits and produce and squeezes them against the outside wall of the juicer. Often the filter or screen is in the side of the wall and this forces the juice out. Since it does it slowly, it does not heat up the juice. This keeps the enzymes and nutrients at a temperature that they can survive at thus giving you the benefits of drinking them.

The downside is that I have a lot of leftover pulp that usually goes in the trash. I found a recipe from the civilizedcaveman site that allowed me to use the pulp from the apple juice I made yesterday.

These are Paleo Cinnamon Apple Scones that I plan to have as a snack each day this week (1 triangle section per day). The recipe can be found on his site (linked above).

Like I said, I used juicing pulp instead of the “minced apples” in his recipe.

Final product. They Came out GREAT! Side Note: if you are a lover of sweets, you may need to up the ante on the amount of honey you use or add sweeter fruits (i.e. bananas) but remember these arent generally super sweet. They are scones not brownies. LOL

BONUS: Red Delicious Apples I used for the recipe and the resulting juice I had left over. The non-processed, perservative free juice Makes for a great addition to breakfast!

R.I.P Oatmeal :-(

Growing up, I ate oatmeal like it was going out of style. In the 80s it was old fashion oats. Nothing fancy ya know cause my mom worked fifty-eleven jobs and had no time for breakfast that took much time to create. Then we discovered the instant stuff in the box with all the cool flavors (ie apple cinnamon spice). Along with the cool stuff also came the processed “stuff”. I mean how long could REAL apples last on a shelf inside oatmeal if it wasn’t processed in some way? something to think about. Anywho traditional oatmeal is clearly not Paleo (which makes me sad on occasion…but I digress). Im currently reading a book called Wheat Belly by Dr.William Davis and it does a boring but exceptional job of explaining why processed cereals (especially those containing gluten) are very toxic to the digestive system. With that being said, I had to come up with some alternative for my dearly beloved oatmeal.

Disclaimer: there is store bought almond/coconut milk in this recipe which begs to differ if this recipe is indeed 100% Paleo. Rule of thumb, I try to be 100% Paleo, 80% of the time…shall we pause to digest that fancy mathematic equation? 🙂 Basically this recipe has the potential to be 100% approved by the Paleo gods but for now what we have below here is ummmm lets say 93% Paleo. Considering from where I came, I think that’s pretty darn good. If you are so inclined to make your own non processed almond milk (see link below), then this would give you your other 7%.

Recipe: “Oatmeal” Minus the Oats
This recipe for oatmeal Tastes ok but think I will experiment with the addition of other fruit (i.e apples puree leftover from juicing) next time

Ingredients:
▶1/4 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts)
▶1/4 cup chopped almonds
▶1 tbsp ground flaxseed
▶1 tsp ground cinnamon (or 1 tsp apple pie spice)
▶1 banana, mashed
▶3/4 cup liquid egg whites (or 3 egg whites)
▶1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (add more if desired)
▶1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:
⏩Blend pecan/almonds in blender or food processor (just enough to crumble them all together).
⏩Whisk together egg whites and almond milk and then stir in nuts, ground flax, mashed banana, vanilla extract, and cinnamon; blend well.
⏩In a medium saucepan, warm the mixture on the stove, stirring frequently, until the “oatmeal” reaches the desired consistency; this should only take a few minutes.
🆗Top with berries, nut butter, seeds, or whatever else your little heart desires.

Also here’s a good link to a discussion on whether or not almond milk is Paleo:

The thing about me and food…

This thing with me, food and health is quite entertaining…well no not really. It’s actually quite sad. You ever heard that saying, “when you know better you do better”? Ok well I know better but for some reason I refuse to do better. What is that? I read somewhere that the food we eat is designed to be addictive so I’m going to blame my lack of doing better on that for now LOL. Im thinking though, this blog may help me realize that it’s not the food as much as it is me.

So anyways this blog is a runners journey to stop with the antics, excuses and destructive behavior that has brought where I am now. Along the way, I invite you to Eat, Love & Paleorize (I made that word up) 🙂 your food along with me Because when you eat better, you not only look better but you feel better.

This should be fun…or maybe not; but at least it will be healthy. LETS GO!
