Choosing the Best Quality Salmon

One of my top priorities when I cook anything is the quality of ingredients I’m using, and it’s no exception when it comes to salmon. The first thing I look for on the label is to always make sure that they are wild-caught over farm raised. Next, I like to choose Alaska salmon to ensure I’m eating the highest quality fish.

Why Alaska Salmon?

  • Seafood from Alaska is always sustainable and wild, and their high quality seafood is available all year round whether fresh or frozen.
  • The natural environment of Alaska produces salmon that is full of beneficial vitamins and minerals, with a high dose of anti-inflammatory Omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Frozen Alaska salmon also contain those healthy nutrients and are just as tasty as fresh, because they are flash frozen at the time of harvest to maintain the utmost purity and freshness.
  • Alaska salmon is harvested by fishermen who follow the most sustainable practices to ensure the highest quality and best tasting seafood.

To learn more about Alaska salmon and their awesome benefits and sustainability practices, read all about it in the Ultimate Guide to Wild Alaska Salmon.

Where to Find Alaska Salmon

I found that it was relatively easy to find wild Alaska Salmon around me. You can find them at Whole Foods and Sprouts either fresh or frozen all throughout the year. But if you have trouble locating them at your grocery store, make sure to ask for it at the seafood counter. I even like to ask servers at restaurants before ordering any kind of seafood dish.

White Chocolate Glaze Paleo Brownies [VIDEO]

These fudgy and decadent Paleo Brownies are so delicious with the white chocolate glaze, you’ll want to make it over and over again!

White Chocolate Glaze Paleo Brownies

Holy moly. Someone come and take these paleo brownies out of my house, please. They are way too addicting and I can’t stop. So make at your own risk. Don’t say I didn’t warn you now.

White Chocolate Glaze Paleo Brownies Recipe

These paleo brownies are made with almond flour as the base and sweetened with coconut sugar. They honestly just taste like regular brownies and you wouldn’t even notice that they are grain free. The combination of eggs, ghee, and melted chocolate chips makes these paleo brownies super moist and decadent.

You honestly don’t even need to make the white chocolate glaze if you don’t want to or are just feeling lazy. The paleo brownies alone are pretty darn fantastic if I do say so myself. BUT. If you want to feel a bit fancier and extra, the white chocolate glaze really does add a fantastic texture to the recipe.

Decadent White Chocolate Glaze

If you are a white chocolate lover, I highly recommend you add this layer because it’s super easy to make but adds such a delicious and delicate crunch and sweetness to this recipe. Cacao butter is melted with a little big of honey then poured and brushed on top of the paleo brownies. Once it’s cooled, it hardens into the most delicious glaze that complements the softness of the brownies so so well.

It also adds such a pretty design to the brownies that I think makes them look even more special. I’m definitely going to have to make a batch over the winter because I’m loving the “snowy” look of that glaze! So perfect for the holidays.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, and line an 8x8 baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together almond flour, carob powder, coconut sugar, baking soda, and sea salt. 

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, ghee, and vanilla extract. 

  4. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and stir together until smooth.

  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. 

  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 

  7. Cool the brownies in the pan for 30 minutes. 

  8. While the brownies are cooling, melt cacao butter and honey in a heat safe bowl over a pot of simmer water on low heat, about 5 minutes. The mixture should be thin. You can also microwave this mixture 30 seconds at a time while stirring in between until completely melted.

  9. Set aside to cool until warm to touch. 

  10. Once the brownies are cooled completely, evenly pour the cocoa butter mixture over the brownies and use a spoon or a spatula to evenly spread into a thin layer.

  11. Sprinkle with sea salt flakes, if using. 

  12. Place in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes until the glaze hardens and turns white.

  13. Remove from the refrigerator and use the parchment paper to lift the brownies out of the pan. You may need to use a knife to loosen the sides if the glaze seeped in there. 

  14. Cut into squares and enjoy! Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.

Dairy Free Matcha Latte (No Whisk Needed, Easy Clean Up) [VIDEO]

Learn how to make the easiest Dairy Free Matcha Latte. You don’t need a whisk, clean up is a breeze, and you’ll love how creamy and frothy it is!

Dairy Free Matcha Latte

It’s been a LOOOOONG time since I made a video, and I’m so excited to be back with a new one! I was really busy for the past several months working on my Korean Paleo Cookbook and haven’t had the time, but I really do enjoy making video and they are super fun for me. If you enjoy my video above, make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel! I plan to bring you more videos in the future.

Today, I want to share how I make my matcha latte. Every time I post my matcha on Instagram, I receive several questions on how I make it so I’m finally sharing my matcha routine with you that I can point my readers to it whenever you are curious. It’s actually super duper easy and quick, and I don’t use a matcha whisk or strainer or a large blender. Clean up is a breeze and it makes the frothiest, smoothest matcha!

Dairy Free Matcha Latte

Dairy Free Matcha Latte

The image above shows some of the ingredients I use in my dairy free matcha latte and I want to break them down for you:

  • Ippodo matcha: I’ve been loving matcha ever since I brought some back from Japan when I traveled there, and I couldn’t find one that matched up to their quality and taste until I found Ippodo’s. Their matcha is so vibrant in color, harvested right, and it’s from Japan, and you won’t want to try other brands after you try theirs. You can save 10% off with my code WGGA10 here!
  • Grass fed collagen: Whether I’m drinking coffee or matcha, I always add a scoop of collagen. It has helped so much with healing my gut health, helping my hair and nails grow, and it’s also great for skin as well. I highly recommend Perfect Supplements’ Collagen Peptide because it’s high in quality, grass fed, and you can’t taste it at all. Get 10% off all their Perfect Brand products with code: GREATGRANDMA10!
  • Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil: This is an optional ingredient, but I love how much focus and energy it gives me in the morning. Naturally found in coconut oil, Brain Octane is quickly absorbed and changed into ketone bodies, giving you energy for better physical and mental performance. The caprylic acid in it is great for combatting digestive issues like candida and yeast. I highly recommend you start out with 1 teaspoon a day and work your way up because it can be a bit too much on the digestive system if you take too much in the beginning.

The rest is super simple. Place the ingredients in a mug and blend everything with an immersion blender (one of the cheapest, most useful tools in my kitchen). It takes just minutes to make, AND you won’t even have many dishes to do afterwards. It seriously makes the creamiest and frothiest matcha latte!
