Paleo Lemon Goji Poppyseed Mug Cake - Cooks In 2 Minutes

 

The image of a poppyseed cake had been haunting me for over a week now. Today, as my kitchen is in need of groceries, I decided it was time for that cake.

Paleo Pumpkin Bread

Paleo Pumpkin Bread

A soft and lightly spiced loaf that makes a perfect tea or coffee accompaniment (or treat after dinner). Pumpkin is low in calories, a source of vitamin C, beta-carotene, and vitamin A. Coconut flour increases the fibre content, and almond meal and eggs provide tummy satisfying protein to fill you up.

Coconut Amaranth Porridge

Coconut Amaranth Porridge

 

Amaranth is a gluten-free, pseudo-grain with a nutrition profile similar to leafy greens. It’s one of the highest ‘grain’ sources of protein, offering all the amino acids (aka a ‘complete’ protein) so it’s a wonderful addition to a vegan diet. It’s also high in iron and has 3 x the amount of calcium compared to most other grains. It’s also the only ‘grain’ know to contain vitamin C. Impressive stuff! This porridge is very easy to make, has a lovely soft texture with a little crunch from the centre of each amaranth grain. It’s high protein, high fibre, and contains a source of fat to help keep you full throughout the morning. You can also make it hormone balancing by adding the maca powder!
