    Primal Fuel


    So, I'm new to this...it's been just over a week of baby steps. In the past I've been known for my baking abilities. With this in mind I was asked to bring a dessert to a gathering we're going to on Saturday. I agreed before beginning my conversion to Primal living and just sat down to make a grocery list and realized I have to take something.


    Any suggestions?

    Someone around here had a recipe for a fruit salad tossed with coconut oil and some shredded coconut. I was just thinking the other day how making a almond flour crust with butter and putting blueberries on top might make an interested dessert if a situation ever calls for it.

    OR...melt almond flour and butter on top of blueberries and make a blueberry cobbler of some sort.

    There are some AWSOME recipes on this lovely lady's food blog. She follow the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, which is basically the same as primal.

    Otherwise, I would suggest buying several bags of berries throwing them into a large bowl and providing copious amounts of full fat cream. Who doesn't love berries and cream?!

    I don't know how much of a purist you are (and I'm not, but I'm coming along)...


    For Christmas, we had a "traditional southern" theme we were to try to adhere to (ham, sweet potatoes, etc.), and I committed to dessert before some health problems forced me to not eat my own baked goods (and I love to bake, and everyone expects me to)!


    I bought some high-quality preserved/jarred peaches in their own juice, drained them and reduced the juice a bit in a saucepan with some riesling and a couple vanilla beans, and served them with good mascarpone, crushed toasted pecans, and a sprig of mint. They were a hit, and nobody noticed I hadn't baked for them.


    For New Years, I poached pears in red wine, cloves, and cinnamon (and a little light-flavored honey, just enough to take the edge off), and served with a couple of different cheeses, toasted nuts, and dark chocolate squares (served everything arranged on a platter, and folks could choose their own combo). This went over well, too, and again, no (open, at least) criticism of lack of bakery.
