Getting out and going for walks has become a highlight of my day, how can it not be with those amazing colours!

After my daily walks I’ve been craving comfort foods and nothing says comfort more than soups and stews. The other day I made a delicious salmon stew of sorts and it was the perfect rainy evening meal, jam packed with tons of veggies and chunks of fresh wild salmon.

Salmon stew: 1tsp coconut oil, 1 large onion, 3 cloves of garlic minced, 1 carrot chopped, 2 stalks of celery chopped, 1 potato diced, 1 bunch of asparagus chopped (reserve the tips), 1 head of cauliflower chopped up small, 1/2 cup white wine, 3 cups chicken broth, 3 cups roasted tomatoes ( sub large can of diced tomatoes) 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill, 1 large filet of salmon chopped… melt coconut oil in a large soup pot, sauté onion until soft, add garlic and stir for about 1 minute. Add white wine and allow to simmer until reduced by 1/2. Add veggies and stir for about 5 minutes, add chicken broth and tomatoes. Cover and let simmer on medium low until potatoes are tender. Add salmon, dill and asparagus tips and stir until salmon is opaque. Add salt and pepper to to taste and your good to go! Hope you enjoy 🙂

In my world dinner isn’t complete without a little sweet treat so I whipped up a little something something

Chocolate Coconut donut with toasted coconut… hit the spot!

1/2 cup coconut flour, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/8 tsp salt, 1/4 cup coconut sugar, 1 egg, 2 egg whites, 1/2 cup almond milk, 2 Tbsp applesauce, 1 tsp vanilla… Whip egg whites to stiff peaks, whisk the rest of the wet ingredients, fold egg whites in wet mixture. Mix dry ingredients together and fold into egg mixture. Grease a donut tin and spoon batter in. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

Topping: 1/2 cup chocolate of choice, 1/2 tsp coconut oil, 1/2-3/4 cup coconut flakes. Toast coconut flakes in a pan over medium high heat until golden brown. Mix chocolate with coconut oil and melt over a double boiler (or in microwave at 20 second increments). Once donut is cool dip in chocolate and top with toasted coconut.

Hope you enjoy as much as we did
