Holiday Eggnog - Serves 6
- 4 cups full fat coconut milk
- 2 cups vanilla almond milk (or vanilla rice milk)
- 6 egg yolk replacers (see below)
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp cinnamon, ground
- 1 tsp nutmeg, ground or freshly grated
- Optional: rum, 1/4 cup or more
In a high powered blender, combine all ingredients until they are well pureed. Warm in a saucepan. Whisk in the rum just before serving (if preferred) and top off with ground cinnamon and a stick for added flavor.
Egg Replacer - equals one egg yolk
- 3 Tbsp. water (6 egg yolks = 18 Tbsp or approx 1 cup)
- 1 Tbsp. ground flaxseed (6 egg yolks = 6 Tbsp)
Directions: Place the water and flaxseed together and allow to gel for about 5 minutes. This mixture will bind as well as eggs. Increase amounts accordingly for additional egg replacement.
What is eating a Hypo-Allergenic Diet?
Hypo-Allergenic is also known as Oligoantigenic or Elimination diet.
This means that we avoid eating the most common ingredients that cause people inflammation and digestive issues. IT IS NOT A DIET TO LOSE WEIGHT. It should be viewed more as a food sensitivity TEST.
The top 5 offenders include: wheat, dairy, corn, soy, and eggs.
Note that some of the foods on the list are very nutritious, so if you are not sensitive to the food, bring them back into your diet (ie. eggs).
Try and stay away from packaged, canned, processed and deep fried foods. And be cautious of dehydrated and dried foods for they often contain added sugars and preservatives. Raw and fresh is often your best bet for optimal health.
