Waffles

Low sugar morning waffles

In the mornings I like to keep things quick yet tasty and healthy. These low sugar waffles do just that, and they remind me of Egg-O’s but I couldn’t tell you for sure as I haven’t had any of those processed wannabe waffles in years.  Additionally, these waffles are gluten free and I try to keep my ingredients organic and with as little interference as possible of funky additives.

As sniffles and winter blues are at its highest before spring comes soon, I decided to make a fantastic soup from scratch that offers a hearty healthy solution to these challenges. This is a great soup to make on a Sunday when you have some more time. It’s the making of the broth that takes time as it has to cook for about 2.5-3 hours and then an additional 20-30 min for the vegetables.

You will need:

*use organic vegetables and organic/grass-fed meats/bones to ensure the best quality of nutrients

1kg of fattier type meat (usually a harder type meat)

5-8 bones with marrow

Vegetables of your choice ( I used what I had available such as broccoli, celery root, bell pepper,celery, carrots, sweet potato, cauliflower, onion etc)

Water

1tbs marjoram

1tbs rosemary

4 juniper leafs

Use a large pot and put the bones in it. I had some extra small ones and put them in here as well. Bone and marrow have been an important source of food since the beginning of dawn. It contains fat of course, but also nourishing minerals ( calcium, magnesium, and potassium) as well as gelatin (aids digestion and also act as a protein sparer allowing the body to fully utilize the proteins taken in) and collagen among other things.

~ Modern Paleo soup Step 3 ~

Cut your piece of meat into bite sized bits. As you can see the piece of meat I’m using has quite a bit of fat in it which gives great flavor as well as satiety. Over the years there has been quite a debate of whether or not to eat saturated animal fats, here is an article I think will make this topic rest in peace.

~ Modern Paleo soup Step 4 ~

Add the bite sized bits of meat to the pot with bones, and add as much water as needed to cover the meats and bones. I used about 1.5 liters for this one.

~ Modern Paleo soup Step 5 ~

Add the marjoram, rosemary and juniper leafs to the pot and cover. Bring the pot to boil and then reduce heat to simmer. Let the broth simmer for 2.5-3 hours before removing juniper leafs and bones.

~ Modern Paleo soup Step 6 ~

While the broth is being made, I pre-cut my vegetables of choice into bite seized bits and make them ready to go. It gives me a feeling being done cooking as I can clean up the kitchen and move on to other things while waiting for adding them as the final step of the soup. Vegetables offers so many health benefits and this soup will cover many of them as you will use a wide variety.

~ Modern Paleo Soup Step 7 ~

Final step of the soup is to remove the bones and juniper leafs, and add the vegetables to cook. Cover the pot and bring to boil and reduce heat to simmer. Depending on your vegetables it can take anything from 15- 30 minutes for them to be fully cooked. When your vegetables are soft the soup is ready to eat.

Enjoy!

 

Berry Bliss Morning

Berry blissful morning

My very blissful morning smoothie!

In the mornings I have started this “juicing” thing but I make more of a puree of fruits and vegetables as it has more fiber than if you are juicing but it’s still easily digested and less intrusive on the stomach. Today I made this blend:

1 organic orange

4 strawberries

1 handful blueberries

1 handful blackberries

1 handful raspberries

1 stalk celery

I put it all in a blender and let it go until smooth.
