Amie and I decided to meet in a hotel lobby at noon. It was a cold and rainy day in NYC. Like a typical tourist, I got lost on my way to the hotel, and arrived a bit late – frazzled and cold. Amie immediately greeted me with a huge smile and a hug. We sat in large red chairs, in a dark lounge, next to the window and just enjoyed being out of the elements for a bit. We had met months before, but hadn’t really gotten to know one another. Amie began telling me her story and I couldn’t believe my ears. She had struggled with health issues and went to doctor after doctor trying to find the answers. She had become allergic to most foods and had months of severe swelling. After many long months and dozens of doctor’s appointments, she discovered it was the food she was eating. Our stories are very similar and we immediately became kindred spirits.
Amieis spunky and has more energy than anyone I know. She’s a personal chef, culinary marketing consultant, whole living expert, professional recipe developer, and specializes in gluten-free “clean” recipes. Her site is full of great recipes and ideas for anyone new to clean eating. She also offers loads of encouragement for those struggling with health issues.
Mother’s Day is Sunday and the traditional act of love is breakfast in bed. Many kids and husbands can have a little trouble trying to figure out what to make, which ingredients to buy, and how to execute the plan early on Sunday without setting off the smoke alarms. So, Amie and I thought it would be fun to give your husbands and kids all the tools they need to make you breakfast this weekend.
We have two easy recipes, a shopping list, and step-by-step instructions for Sunday morning. Print off the step-by-step instructions and coconut flour waffle recipe here, then pop over to Amie’s site for the second recipe and shopping list. Hand the printed paper to your family and you can sleep soundly knowing that a healthy, delicious breakfast is on the way. Happy Mother’s Day.
