Grok on!

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. I want that for breakfast, too!!! Yummmmmmm!!! Thanks for sharing, look forward to trying this!

  3. Thanks! It was a lot. One could easily cut the recipe in half or by a third. But then you wouldn’t have as much:)

  4. WOW looks INCREDIBLE – yay raw eggs! I wish I had a source.

    • Meagan, believe it or not we found our “egg lady” on craigslist. The HOA says no chickens and our tiny postage stamp back yard is entirely filled with raised beds so chickens are a no-go for us right now. There were others on craigslist selling eggs too. Check it out!

      Thanks for watching!

      Oh, and I just made a batch of mousse and used all the egg yolks. It was just as good!

    • Adeline, we had some “non-primals” over for dinner and served this mousse for desert. They were blown away! I’m curious as to what your guests will think. Enjoy!

  6. This looks yummy. I’m not sure on the raw egg part of it, though.

    • Jane, for quite a long time I was unsure about raw eggs as well. I did some research and found out that there is no problem in consuming raw eggs.
      Here is a post I found from MDA about this very thing…

  7. Looks great! I voted for you.

    What I do when I melt chocolate, is to boil water in a pot, put the chocolate in a bowl that fits in the pot. That way the boiling water heats the bowl and melts the chocolate. No risk of burning at all.

  8. I love the fact that this mousse is made mainly with egg whites, I am intolerant to yolks and all chocolate mousses have them. Can’t wait to try it!!!

  9. This looks super good, not sure I have enough control to not eat it all in one sitting.

  10. This is the best thing I’ve ever eaten! Thanks for the video and recipe, we couldn’t find just coconut fat so we went all in with all coconut milk and it firmed up nicely in the refrigerator. I was skeptical because it didn’t look nearly as thick as it did on the video before it went in the frig. This mornings test bite was something of a surprise, it was PERFECT!
