Fitting that my first official blog entry is going to be about FOOD! 

Some people will find this information frivolous and absolutely non-necessary...others will have "Aha!" moments (as in, "aha! I knew Dave was crazy."). In my journey to find the best AND tastiest things to eat I came to a cross-roads some time ago because it is difficult to find conveniently pre-prepared things...anything really, to eat, unless it is my own leftovers. Snack bars sometimes solve this issue for people, but eliminating gluten alone from the equation throws most recipes off balance and into the "Edible???" category, let alone a whole host of other things that sometimes make food stuff-my-face yummy, but make me feel shit-my-pants sick.

Finding something that has everything I want and nothing I don't want is very difficult. Yes, but of course.

Long story short, I've landed on a pretty good snack that is quick and can be cheaply made at home.
It's as simple as this:

What you need:

5 cups shredded coconut
1 can of coconut milk
8 egg whites
stevia to taste
pinch o' sea salt
4 tablespoons arrowroot powder
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 cup of dried currants
coconut oil

What you do:
beat the eggs to stiff peaks.
beat in the salt, vanilla, arrowroot and stevia.
mix the coconut milk into the shredded coconut.
incorporate the coconut ingredients into the other ingredients and fold together.
grease muffin tins with coconut oil and cook at 300 for 20-25 minutes.

These are really good straight out of the oven, but are also good the next morning...and I'm hoping they're good for the rest of the week. The challenge now is going to be to keep the protein content up without using egg whites, because egg-whites have to be cooked. Ideally I wouldn't have to cook this snack, I would instead mix the ingredients somewhat wet and use a gelatinous substance to keep it together. I bought some Agar Agar but haven't used any of it yet, because I've never used it before, but i'm thinking it will work. almond meal would be a good addition, but there is a lot of work involved in soaking/sprouting/drying/grinding to get the quality I want.

If anyone makes these or something similar, feel free to let me know your suggestions.
