Healthy Holiday Dishes, Part 4

bluecoffee1

Navigating through the holidays can be a challenge for someone committed to eating healthfully, but it is very do-able. While everyone else is gorging on harmful food products, it’s easy to whip up delicious treats for your family using only healthful ingredients. Try this Blueberry Coffee Cake, for example. Great for a brunch or your holiday potluck table, or just anytime!
1 1/2 cups organic whole barley flour (for gluten-free, use buckwheat or brown rice flour – this may sacrifice some texture, but it will still be good)

1 tbsp. non-aluminum baking powder

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. sea salt

1 1/2 cups organic blueberries (frozen or fresh)

1 free range egg

1/2 cup raw milk or coconut milk

1/4 cup raw honey

1/4 cup butter, melted
TOPPING:

1/4 cup butter, melted

1/3 cup raw honey

1 tbsp. flour

1/2 cup chopped organic walnuts
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and sea salt. Stir in blueberries.
In a small bowl, beat egg, honey, milk, and butter. Add to dry ingredients and stir gently until mixed. Spread in a greased 7 x 11 glass baking pan.
Combine all topping ingredients and distribute evenly over batter in pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until the top is light golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature.
*******************
Think of the many benefits of saturated fat (Omega-3s). This list is courtesy of Dr. Russell Blaylock, MD:
– prevent depression

– treat bipolar disorder

– prevent preeclampsia (abrupt hypertension during pregnancy)

– reduce premature births

– protect baby’s brain

– modulate anger, anxiety, fear

– improve immunity

– counteract autoimmune diseases

– prevent and treat cancer

– protect the brain

– fight cardiovascular disease

– prevent and treat arrhythmia

– combat stroke
In other words, never hesitate over butter, red meat,* or whole raw dairy products! *red meat should be from animals that are not factory-farmed, but have a natural life – without antibiotics or pesticided foods
