Caramelized Coconut Chips


Prep time:  2 min
Cook time: 3 min
Yield:  4 servings (about 1 cup)

Ingredients
¼ teaspoon Celtic sea salt
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
 
Directions
1. Mix the salt and cinnamon with a fork in a small bowl and set aside. Heat a cast iron or stainless steel skillet over medium-high heat, about 2 minutes.

2. Add the coconut flakes to the skillet and distribute evenly to form a single layer in the bottom of the pan.  Cook, stirring frequently, for about 3 minutes, but watch closely for desired toastiness.  Remove the pan from the heat.

3. Sprinkle the hot coconut flakes with the salty cinnamon and toss until evening seasoned.  Transfer to a plate and allow to cool in a single layer for maximum crunch.  Store at room temp in an airtight container-if they last that long.

1½ tablespoons poppy seeds
1¼ cup fresh blueberries (or frozen, defrosted)

Meat and Spinach Muffins


Prep time:  15 min
Cook time: 40 min
Yield:  4 servings

Ingredients
Three 16- ounce bags frozen chopped spinach,
½ tablespoon coconut oil
½ medium onion, diced (about ½ cup)
1½ lbs. ground beef
2 cloves garlic, minced (about 2 tablespoons)
½ teaspoon Celtic sea salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
½ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
3 eggs

Directions
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees

2. Place all the spinach in a colander and press out the water with a bowl that fits inside the colander; squeeze handfuls of spinach to wring out the remaining water.  You should have about 4 cups of spinach.

3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, about 3 minutes.  Add coconut oil and allow it to melt.  Add the onion and sauté, stirring with a wooden spoon, until it's crisp-tender and translucent, about 5 minutes.

4. Crumble the meat into the pan, breaking up lumps with the wooden spoon.  Add the garlic, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper, and cook until the meat is browned.  Stir in the spinach until it's combined.  Set aside to cool for about 15 minutes.  

5. Beat the eggs in a small bowl with a fork, and when the meat is cool, add them to the meat; blend well.  Using your hands is the easiest way to combine.  

6. Place muffin papers in a 12-count muffin pan.  Pack the batter in a ½ -cup measure, and then transfer it to the muffin pan, using your hands to pack the mixture tightly into the muffin paper.  It should be slightly mounded on top.  

7. Back for 40 minutes or until the tops are lightly browned.  Remove the muffins from the pan, cool and store covered in the refrigerator.

1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
1½ teaspoons dried ginger
1½ teaspoons ground cumin

1½ teaspoons Celtic sea salt
¼ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

4. Place the salmon skin-side down on the grill, close the lid, and cook for about 3 minutes (the skin should be a little blackened and starting to separate from the pink flesh.)  Flip the salmon, close the lid, and cook another 3 minutes.
