SNACKRIFICE: Low Carb Paleo Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits with Honey Avocado spread feat. Wedderspoon Organic Honey

Saturday, February 22, 2014

Growing up it was always one of my favorite things to go to Red Lobster for their Cheddar Biscuits. If you have every had one you know what I am talking about. Those little devils are loaded with artificial fillers that are 100% not good for you. A new series we are launching on the blog as well as on our youtube, is SNACKRIFICE, where we take unhealthy favorites and swap them out for a healthy version! I have been making a lot of Paleo food lately and avocados have become a staple in my daily diet. Savory warm bread and avocados? hmmm I felt like I was on to something. 

Then my friends at Wedderspoon had so kindly sent me their brand new Thyme Honey! I had been dying to use it in a new recipe. I was already using it in dressings and on my roasted vegetables, which by the way is a-mae-zing! The thyme honey is really unique in flavor and texture. The ancient Egyptians, Romans, and Greeks used this popular herd and it was thought to promote courage, aid in sleep along with its other healing properties. Wedderspoon is having a mae-jor sale until the end of February! I highly recommend giving their products a try! Also If you missed my last  post I featured  the Wedderspoon Beechwood Honey in my Vanilla Honey Nut Butter recipe. 

The biscuits can be mae-d a few different ways to fit your dietary needs. The great thing about these biscuits is you just need one bowl, no need to separate the dry from the liquid. 
Preheat your over to 375F Bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly toasted at the top. 


1/4 cup Water
2 Egg Whites
splash of almond milk ( more or less depending on consistency ) 
1 tsp Coconut Oil

1/4 cup Milled Flax Seed
1 tbs Coconut Flour
2 tbs Nutritional Yeast
1 tbs Protein Powder ( I used a brown rice protein, for paleo you can use pea or hemp)
2 Tb of Almond Flour ( for a more flaky biscuit continue to add almond flour till you have dough rather than a batter) 
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1 tbs Garlic Powder
1 tbs Dried Onion
1 tbs Dried Parsley 
1/8 tsp Baking Soda
1/8 tsp Baking Powder 

Because mine were moist and sponge like when I store and eat them later I toast them :) 
Now for the avocado spread, I came up with two variations. Now these would be great with just the honey on them but I think you will all like these healthy spread alternatives. 

Lemon + Honey Avocado Spread
1/2 Avocado (mashed)
1 tsp Wedderspoon Organic Thyme Honey
1/2 Lemon Zest
The Juice of half a lemon
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Onion Powder
Fresh Black Pepper and Sea Salt to taste

Chili + Honey Avocado Spread
1/2 Avocado (mashed)
1 tsp Wedderspoon Organic Thyme Honey
1/2 tsp Sweet Paprika
1/4 tsp Smokey Paprika
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp Onion Powder 
1/4 tsp Dark Chili Powder
Juice from Half a lime
dash of Cayenne Pepper
Fresh Black Pepper and Sea Salt to taste

How To: Be Mentally Strong

Woah Haley is getting all deep on you again :) 
Seriously though I really love sharing content like this because I think these are topics we subconsciously think about but people rarely touch on them. Anyone can write "how to happy 101". Don't stress, do what you love, etc.... but how do you actually DO those things. If you are searching for balance in your life whether you are in school, you have a career or you simply do not know what you want in life, then take a look at this video and Pin this chart :)

We will be providing you all with some quick and easy tools to help you learn to love yourself better!

For today we will keep it simple, list 5 things that you love about yourself. We know you can list at least five :) Maybe you are a great cook or baker? You like your hair or mae-b you are a good listener? Whatever it is, jot it down and through out the month look at your list, especially on the days when you are feeling negative about yourself. Remember regardless of who you think you are, you are a-mae-zing!
