We went to 4th Generation Market in Boca the other day. Oh my. Everything is organic, and there was a ton of great stuff. From the produce and the specialty items to the smoothies and the baked goods—I was so happy. See the photo above? That's just a few of the gluten-free and raw goodies made by chef Claire at 4th Generation Market. The majority of the bakery was gluten-free. Yes, the majority!
Also, I thought I would share this breakfast cake we've been having here at Mom's, made two ways. It's a banana cake topped with dairy-free chocolate chips (above), and topped with goat cheese and fruit (below).
I'll never make it with goat cheese again. My family can tolerate goat cheese (though we don't eat it often), but we all agreed we would have liked it much more with cashew or macadamia butter in place of the goat cheese. I'm thinking of using my macadamia glaze from my second cookbook next time. (By the way, you can get 7% OFF ($1.82) by entering code ND3LT5NR in my store!)
If you top yours with cashew butter or my macadamia glaze, I would suggest baking the cake by itself for about 15 minutes first (that's what I did). Then pour the topping over the partially baked cake, top with fruit, and put it back in the oven to finish cooking.
If you're adding dairy-free chocolate chips you can go ahead and mix those in or sprinkle them on top when you first put it in the oven.
Puree in food processor (I used my mom's Blendtec):
2 ripe peeled bananas
1/4 cup grapeseed oil
20 drops vanilla liquid stevia
2 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup Bob's almond flour
Pour into greased dish. I used my mom's large pie dish.
Bake at 325 degrees for about 32 minutes (longer if you use topping and fruit).
The baking time may be slightly different for a square baking dish.
Also the size of your bananas and eggs can add to or decrease the baking time.
I also had to tell you about these rash guards we got Zoe and Ashley several days ago at a surf shop in Deerfield Beach. We've been spending the majority of our days in the pool and at the beach, and no amount of sunblock was keeping them completely free of sunburn. These are brilliant. They have a turtleneck and elbow length sleeves, and Ashley's even has shorts. T
hey're UV 50, and they
cut the amount of sunblock Zoe and Ashley need in half.
Ahhh... I'm in paradise here :-)
