Recently I’ve added whole wheat flour back into my diet, along with the occasional bit of honey. The journey to this decision was long and complex, involving a severe B12 deficiency, a bout of malaria in Southeast Asia, and my engagement to a Burmese man named Naing Naing (who currently requires honey… but someday I might be able to convince him that monk fruit extract is fabulous).
To put it simply, my family and I decided that our “Deprivation Diet” wasn’t working for us. We were ill and unhappy. So slowly, we’ve been experimenting with different foods. Although I still don’t eat cow’s milk (largely due to the major issues in the dairy industry), I’m open to eating goat’s cheese and milk from time to time, so long as it’s all natural and free from hormones, steroids, and other yucky stuff.
Don’t worry, this blog is still going to have plenty of specialty items! But it’s going to undergo some updates as I restructure my personal dietary principles. Send me a message if you have questions (I’d love to answer them!).
But anyways… here’s a Honey Coconut Cookies Recipe for y’all straight from Cuenca, Ecuador!
