A Few Updates

Every once in a while, I will go back and do an update on a recipe. I am often tweaking my own recipes, and sometimes come up with a variation, see something I missed, or just simply want to add a few more notes. I like to let you know when I do, so here are three updates on some recent posts that I hope you find helpful (these are what I added to the original post, so you will see these comments there as well),

For my Cream of Wheat recipe:

*Update: After a little more experimentation, I found that having a total of 2 1/2 cups of water, instead of just two, works the best-not too watery, not overly thick- so I have changed my directions to reflect that.

Roasting Pumpkins for Pies and other projects:

*Update: A piano student very kindly gave me a sugar or pie pumpkin that was grown in their garden. I made it up for a few projects and found it very nice (it had a darker color and more pronounced pumpkin taste). Because it was so small, it didn’t take as much time to bake, and it was a bit drier (though this may have been because I got a little distracted and slightly over baked it). I ended up not having to drain it at all, but just added it to a blender with about 1/2 cup of water, and it was perfect!

And don’t forget! The Nourishing Fall Carnival is coming up on Tuesday!

I love beautiful and simple food that is nourishing to the body and the soul. I wrote Fresh: Nourishing Salads for All Seasons and Ladled: Nourishing Soups for All Seasons as another outlet of sharing this love of mine. I also love sharing practical tips on how to make a real food diet work on a real life budget. Find me online elsewhere by clicking on the icons below!

    Hi Anonymous,
    Coconut milk does actually contain coconut oil, so you will get some of the health benefits of the coconut oil when you drink coconut milk. 🙂

    I am not sure if coconut milk has unique health benefits, unrelated to the oil, or not. But I bet there are!

    Just curious…

    How would you suggest introducing coconut oil? I used it this weekend (for the first time) in a beef and broccoli stir fry (probably 1 tbsp, substituted in a recipe that called for 2 tbsp veg oil). I’ve felt VERY tired and sort of flu-ish since then (I may have been getting sick anyway), but maybe I should’ve used even less.

    Any thoughts?

    Dairy Free Mom,

    It’s so hard to tell when flu season is here, isn’t it! I would recommend that you start with 1/2 teaspoon a day. You can build up from there. Most people don’t have any problems with it, but it really can cause powerful detoxes for some!

    Stay well!
