This magnet (above). Bigfoot buy late 1990’s for nice woman @ consulting firm w. most emotional, mind-change-y boss in building. Inevitably, nice woman quit and leave behind magnet! Bigfoot not understand why. This week, understand. When things very bad, glib faux-vintage magnet art not really hit the spot.

This bread from Elena Amsterdam’s paleo book. But wait. Not need consult book. Recipe here. <–bez platna!
It Bigfoot version:
Heat oven to 350F. Coconut oil up a bread pan. (Elena calls for a 7″ x 3″ pan; mine is probably more of a 8″ x 4″.) Then line the bottom with parchment (–>easy removal, no bread/heartbreak.)
In this order, put these ingredients into a Vitamix: 5 large eggs, 1 T apple cider vinegar, 1 T coconut nectar, 1T melted coconut oil, 2c (230g) almond flour, 2T (15g) coconut flour, 1/4c (25g) ground golden flax, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. baking soda. Blend until uniform. Could do in Cuisinart. Could probably do w. powerful immersion blender.
Glob into prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake for 15 minutes. Rotate pan. Bake 15 minutes more or until set and brown on top. Cool before slicing.
Whole family loves. Easy make. No spiky BG like Udi’s. Bigfoot math 40g CHO entire loaf. BONUS: so sturdy, can make thin slices. So far, deemed perfect: PB&J, pulled pork sandwich, peanut butter toast, buttered toast.
Scientific cost analysis: 2c almond flour ($5) + 5 eggs ($2) + more stuff ($1) = $8. 1 loaf Udi’s = $5.
$8 vs. $5
effort vs. no effort
clean up vs. no clean up
no spike vs. spike
thin, elegant slices vs. hunky chunks
40g CHO entire loaf vs. 8,000g
Winner = This Bread.
Bigfoot think not possible SB’s turn out OK. Only make because trusted friend do so and love.
Gorgeous green puffs. Perfect w. sriracha. 100% of persons willing try adore spinach bombs. Definitely good idea for Thanksgiving. Recipe makes about 3 dozen. (NB: reheat well in oven or micro.)
Real recipe from A Sweet Life real chef here.
It Bigfoot version (basically same but more cheese):
Heat oven to 350F & line a large cookie sheet with parchment. Press 1 lb. thawed, frozen spinach in a colander with wads of paper towels to remove as much spinachwater as possible. Blend (I mean in a blender) this together with 1 c almond flour, 4T melted butter, 2 large eggs, 1/2 c parmesan cheese, 3/4 c feta, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, 1 tsp. kosher salt, lots of ground black pepper, 1 tsp. garlic powder, 3T coconut cream (the fatty part from a can of coconut milk.) Use a #70 gelato scoop to make globs on the lined cookie sheet. Bake for 10 – 15 minutes or until sturdy enough to pick up. Cool every so slightly before serving.
Actual quote from 13-year-old w. achilles injury: These are awesome! Can I have another plate? Injured teen next jumps up—as if spinach bombs heal!—refills plate, returns to achilles-icing position.
Real chef version includes carb count: < 1g per bomb.
