See Me On Delvespot + A Fertility Boosting Start To The Day

I was delighted to receive an email from Lucie - writer and creator of Delvespot some months ago asking if I would contribute to her new blog on the topic of food, fertility and family.   There were lots of enquiring questions and I have to say Lucie has done a fantastic job of putting it all together.  

If you haven’t come across Delvespot as yet then take a trip over here and learn more about Lucie who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011 just shy of her 32nd Birthday.  Turning her back on the path of conventional treatment Lucie has chosen to heal her body naturally all of which she openly shares.  It is an intriguing and inspiring read so take your time whilst there.   Maybe you could munch on my fertility boosting 3 Seed Banana Pudding for which you can find the recipe here whilst doing so.......

Hope you enjoy!

How to Transform an Avocado

 The clouds are crying as my eldest would say.  I wander if the rain will ever stop.  It’s cold, it’s wet, it’s dreary and not your typical Sunshine Coast weather.  I want to eat a block of chocolate..........

My husband is away competing in this and we wish we could be there cheering him on. The boys are going nuts inside and so am I.   I spy an avocado in the fruit bowl and decide to transform it.   I indulge in some trickery.  

This sneaky raw avocado chocolate mousse reminds me just how incredibly versatile the humble avocado is.  Serve immediately or chill for an hour prior to serving, adjust the sweetness to your desire and top with a sprinkle (only) of grated chocolate pieces (70% cocoa or above) and some berries........  Deliciously satisfying with no guilt - that is my type of treat - just remember this serves 2 and not 1!

Grain Free Coconut & Sour Cherry Granola

 I decided to do a half and half thing here but if fully roasted is your preference then double the amount of coconut oil, rice malt syrup and vanilla extract.  Otherwise simply split the completely mixed ingredients into two batches and roast one batch only based on the instructions below. By doing so you will have one cooked batch and one raw batch which you can mix together at the end.  If you can’t find sour cherries then substitute in whatever you have on hand.  Dried blueberries would also work quite nicely in here as well.  

Grain Free Coconut & Sour Cherry Granola
Makes approx 3 - 31/2 cups

2 cups coconut flakes
3/4 cups macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
1/4 cup sour cherries, roughly chopped
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1 Tbs chia seeds
1 Tbs hemp seeds
1 Tbs dried white mulberries (optional)

1 Tbs coconut oil
1 Tbs rice malt syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
(double if roasting complete mixture)

To Prepare

Preheat oven to 165 degrees celcius (fan forced)
Combine all the above ingredients in a bowl
Divide the mix into two batches (if doing half cooked, half raw)
Combine the coconut oil, rice malt syrup and vanilla in a separate bowl
Then add this to one of the coconut batches
Mix well to combine and coat all the pieces
Spread out on a baking sheet lined with baking paper
Place in a pre heated oven and cook for 15 - 20 mins or until golden in colour
Stir regularly to ensure even cooking
Remove from the oven and allow to cool
Mix the cooked batch with the raw batch and store in an airtight container for up to one week

Hey There, I’m Sherilyn the creator of Wholepromise. This is where I venture outside of being a mum, wife and Fertility Nurse Specialist.

In all Wholepromise is my style of food, it’s the food I want my boys to appreciate and it’s the food that makes me happy. Styling and photographing it is just another bonus.
