Here’s something interesting I just discovered from wandering around the building. A grow room that’s like an indoor greenhouse. And they are affiliated with the community garden mom & I have been going to. How awesome!

Outside we found they have a children’s art studio. There was an art and yoga camp for kids. ..and check out the apple tree dripping with apples just outside! (Mmm.. we know what we are going to do with these!)

And now, to the kitchen!

I don’t have a lot of photos to share for this recipe. But truly, it’s so delicious and we’ve switched out the butter or margarine for coconut oil. I’ve been using coconut oil a lot lately.

 

Health Benefits of Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has abundant health benefits. Here are a few of the most popular ones:

Coconut oil is great for the brain and have been shown to help reverse Alzheimers.

It’s anti-viral, anti-fungal and helps to eliminate candida in the body.

Coconut oil is wonderful for the skin and strengthens hair.

It’s been shown to help reverse diabetes and it also preserves muscle mass while promoting weight loss.

So it makes a great substitute in our apple crisp recipe. We’re also switching out brown sugar for coconut (or maple) sugar.

Apple crisp is always a favorite and the maple and cinnamon is so delicious. You can add chopped walnuts to the topping also for a little extra crunch,and more nutritional impact.

Enjoy!

To your glowing health,

  • PINKY ALIVE – Rochelle Rosa

    Hello Robin,
    Glad to hear you chipper and settled in with your new move.
    Here in New York we really didn’t have much of a summer. It rained every week with heavy storm, high humidity, so the Mosquitos were attaching with a vengeance.
    I joined what is called “Fresh Food Box” .
    It is similar to a food co- op and they are located in different locations in New York.
    I pay $10.00 each week to pick up my giant bag full of freshly picked Veggies and Fruits. Everything is picked from local farms that do not use pesticides. So everything is either organic or biodynamic which is even better.
    A bag is usually packed with at least 5-6 items consisting of Either Fresh Peaches, Nectorines, or Blueberried.
    Cilantro, Arugula, Romain, Butter, Swiss Chard, Corn, White Eggplants, Red Onions, Garlic, Carrots, Green Beans, Zucchini.
    The project runs from June till November so I’m looking forward to some delicious root veggies to make my Vegan and Vegan Raw pies :-)))
    Always in Good Health,
    Rochelle

    • Those bags sound amazing! and it may seem like getting a surprise bag each week. fun. And I hope you get some nice fall weather to compensate a little. Nice to hear from you Rochelle. Peace, love and good heath to you too!
