The other day I was lucky enough to receive this package in the mail from Mom:
You might be asking yourself what was in the box.
And you also might be saying, ‘Damn, I bet that cost a fortune to ship to Spain’.
It did. Thanks, Mom.
As I opened the box, rays of sunshine and rainbows flooded my house and trumpets resounded while the mere humming of a choir echoed in the background.
The angels had shown down their light on my little Spanish flat.
The angels from coconut heaven.
Yes, my sweet friends, that is 6 kilos of coconut flour and 64 ounces of coconut butter – coveted items which are no where to be found in Spain.
Not only am I thankful for my mother and her shiny pocketbook for providing me with these
luxury necessary items, but I am also thankful for the person who decided it would be a good idea to take that weird, hairy nut and turn it into butter, flour, oil, and cream.
Thanks to these products, a Paleo princess such as myself can indulge in sweet treats without resorting to the wicked stepmother of baking – wheat flour. While I don’t condone regular consumption of Paleo-fied treats (do as I say, not as I do) like coconut cupcakes, coconut pancakes, or even coconut butter by the spoonful, sometimes we need a little somethin’ somethin’, youknowwhai’msayin’? The ladies know what I’m talkin’ about.
So this Thanksvember, let us be thankful for such necessities that lead us away from the regular dessert tray and toward the … grain-free dessert tray.
And lastly, a friendly reminder from the Coconut Gods:
Saturated fat does not make you fat.
