Food Worlds Collide

As many of you know, I"m a big fan of Nourishing Traditions, by Sally Fallon, and the nutritional philosophy of the Weston A. Price Foundation.

As many of you also know, I'm an Orthodox Christian, and it is now Lent, and there are certain religiously prescribed (strongly suggested but no one is going to hell if the fast is not followed) fasting rules.

Also, my doctor has me, lo these many years, on a carb-moderated eating plan.

AND I'm doing weight watchers.

Ka-BLAM!!!!!

Talk about food worlds colliding!

So, here I offer you a WW friendly, Lent friendly, WAPF friendly not-so low carb but still smart enough because it's sugar free YUMMO dessert:

Frozen Banana with homemade sugar free healhty "magic shell":

1 Frozen banana, cut into 4 chunks.
1 T. coconut oil, melted
1 T. cocoa powder
pinch salt
4 packets of stevia
tiny bit of vanilla flavor

Mix the oil the the ingedients following. Roll the frozen banana pieces in the chocolate sauce. It will harden and form a shell.

Eat it.

I usually have enough for two bananas. The sauce comes to 4 WW points. Really good "treat" snack with a healthy traditional oil.

Wow, you're walking a thin line! Amazing! Maybe you should write a book about this combination of eating guidelines.

Ha! SO not qualified to write a book on anything food related, unless it's how to gain weight rapidly.
