Ok, ok. I promise.. this is the last time I will mention health vs illness. My two year old has a fever, and my five year old came down with an ear infection. Hubby is still fighting bronchitis, but he is functioning. I have been as compliant as possible and I have stuck to my guns regarding excersise. I need to brag about my husband here. He has supported my attempts to get to the gym, even though he would rather see me take care of the kids. I know that he is still feeling ill and needs to rest. I also know that if I fall, he will lose much more time as I recuperate in bed. Plus, if he covers me for the two hours I need, then I take on the entire night shift so he can get uninterrupted sleep. He's really acting like a true partner here, and I just wanted to thank him.
Anyway, here's the bottom line: Illness can be prevented through D'adamo's principles. Mom's are supposed to carve out time for themselves every single day.
Blueberry cookies! My kids ate these up:
1 big heaping tablespoon of ghee
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon rice milk or any kind of compliant milk
1 tsp vanilla (the real stuff!)
1/4 tsp sea salt - fine crystals
1/2 tsp rumford baking powder
1 cup millet flour or 1/2 cup oat flour with 1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup applesauce (plain or with cinnamon)
1/4 cup fresh blueberries (frozen will also work)
if you aren't allergic, then add one egg and omit applesauce
Cream the ghee and sugar. Add milk and vanilla and beat. Beat in all other ingredients except the blueberries. Gently fold in blueberries. Drop by tsp onto non stick cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 - 14 minutes. Allow cookies to cool completely before attemtping to remove.
The recipe was taken from allergy free cooking by Eileen Rhude Yoder and tweaked a little bit. We didn't have any leftovers.
