Carmel Belle

Carmel is one of my favourite places. And I’ve only been there twice. That white sand beach is absolutely gorgeous and I love the quaint little shopping village, with the best cheese shop ever (The Cheese Shop). Monterey is pretty sweet too, with an absolute must see aquarium, and as I quickly found out, a terrific bakery (Parker-Lusseau) and fantastic restaurant (Passionfish). Between the scenery, including the famous 17-Mile drive,  and all the great food, it’s no wonder I can’t wait to go back. Read on to find out about what to eat if you’re in the area, or planning a trip (or just curious to see how I primally ate my way through town)…

Pumpkin Spice Mousse (Paleo)

October 25, 2013

Pumpkin Spice Mousse

This pas week, Vancouver has been shrouded in fog. Not just a little bit of fog, here and there. And not just in the mornings or late at night. We’ve been under a thick, expansive blanket for over a week. The worst part about it wasn’t that I couldn’t see out my window. It wasn’t the constant gloominess. It was knowing, that just above the fog line, as low as some of my friends’ homes on the North Shore, the weather was stunningly gorgeous. We’re talking hot sun beating down on your face as you kick through piles of crimson and golden leaves, no need for a jacket because a sweater will do, type of gorgeous.

But for the past couple of days, it seems to have lifted (though it comes and goes, constantly teasing us), and I’ve finally been able to enjoy some of this glorious fall weather. And as I was driving through town, I saw the cutest little kid, probably 3 or 4 years old, trying to roll a massive pumpkin (bigger than he was) up his driveway, with his parents chuckling behind him. It was one of those moments that makes you pause because you know you’re witnessing something special (and adorable to boot).

Speaking of pumpkins, are you guys as obsessed with them as I am? A couple of weeks ago, I posted a recipe for pumpkin spice pancakes, which I still can’t get enough of. Then I played around with a pumpkin soufflé recipe, but didn’t like it enough to share. And my experimentation went off on a tangent as I began tinkering around with this fabulous mousse.

Salted Chocolate Coconut Stacks

My favourite recipes are those where very few ingredients combine to make something magical. And this is such a recipe. When you pop one of these salted chocolate coconut stacks in your mouth, and experience the salty, crunchy, chocolatey goodness, you’ll expect the recipe to be complicated, or for there to be some secret ingredient. Prepare for your mind to be blown: 3 ingredients, one of which is salt. The other two are coconut flakes and chocolate. So, all three ingredients are healthy, paleo, and probably in your kitchen pantry right now…

These irresistible treats are simply salted coconut chips enrobed in dark chocolate, and yet they taste like so much more. And dare I say they’re pretty much guilt-free? These are one of my favourite snacks, and I hope you enjoy them!
