    But.. but... that's NOT healthy!!

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    Do you ever look at the food choices someone is making and just sit there flabergasted that they canít see what they are doing?

    A friend posted on Facebook this morning about some healthy cookies her and her daughter made. She was quite pleased to be able to send a ďhealthy snack without any added oilsĒ in her kidsí lunchboxes today.

    The cookies had 4 ingredients:

    1 box Lemon cake Mix
    1 Egg
    2 Cups Cool Whip
    1 cup powdered sugar

    The egg is the only decent part of the whole thing and there was an apologetic note on the recipe about how, unfortunately, the cookies donít work with egg substitute.

    Well thank God for that at least.

    I laughed painfully at this. Partly because it's just friggin' sad, but also because my allergies are giving me a cough and it hurt my throat to laugh/cough. Aaahhh. People.

    And it makes me crazy that her kids can take that shit to school but my kids can't take the banana bread or cookies I make them because of the almond flour.

    (I get the allergy thing, I really do but my kids are getting a bit tired of fruit and bacon for snack every day when their friends all have cookies and cakes.)

    I haven't had a lot of success with just coconut flour. Clearly I need to find some better recipes. Open to suggestions!

    And how is the tub of cool whip not an "Added oil"?? I was under the impression that cool whip was just whipped up oil with corn syrup in it.

    Tropical Traditions website has TONS of recipes for coconut flour. I've used them with really good results.

    Yeah, my almost 7 yo kid has to argue in the lunchroom because other kids tell her that their whole-grain bread is healthier than grass-fed beef she is getting. Luckily, they also tell her stuff like mosquitoes make honey, so it is easy to show that a lot of things other kids say are just as wrong.
