How to cut up your own organic free ranged dead chicken.

IMG_1396.JPG
I’ve decided that I would like to do more videos and less writing.
Sure I would I want to share my random opinions but I’ve realized that I have some mad skills that I could be teaching.
I’m spending my life collecting skills that improve quality of life.
Many of them are very easy and anyone can do it. And Many of them also do not involve pig heads or chicken feet. I will warn you when those ones come up but I would like to invite you to set an intention for yourself to be cool with uncommon animal parts because they are so commonly thrown away.

So, here it is!

My first skill share, just for you, my beloved followers.
It’s only three and a half minutes long and will teach you how to cut up your own free range organic chicken.
Doing this makes ethical meat so affordable. And we all love meat that wasn’t raised in its own poop without a beak of its own to peck bugs with.
I’ll figure out how to put the video right on the page, but until then you’ll have to click the link…

How to cut up your own free ranged organic dead chicken.

Decadent Chocolate Cake (flourless, resembling the best brownies of your life).

I wish I could remember where I found the original idea for this cake. I would like to credit them as it is absolutely brilliant. I stared at the ingredients wondering how a cake without flour would hold together. I was sceptical, but gave it a try and was amazed by the results. Without flour you get pure, delicious chocolaty-ness. I now make this cake for all birthdays requiring chocolate cake. I top it with the birthday persons favourite fruit and whipped cream and/or icing. It’s incredibly rich and special.
*I will post a picture once I make the cake again.*
I will give a few ingredient options, highlighting in bold the ones I used.

Rich, dark and decadent chocolate cake

-12 oz. of chocolate, melted*(chocolate chips, bakers chocolate or raw cacao paste)
-1 cup fat, melted (butter, coconut oil, lard, ghee)
-1 1/2 cups of sugar (coconut sugar, sucanat, rapadura)
-1/2 tsp salt
-4 tsp vanilla (raw vanilla powder, vanilla extract or bean)
-6 large eggs (4 of Chicken Man’s egg yolks)
-1/2 to 1 cup cocoa (raw cacao powder, cocoa powder)

Blend all ingredients together until smooooooth.

Pour into greased pan lined with parchment paper. I use a large round clay pan, but an 8×8 or a bit larger would work too.

Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes, until
Middle is no longer jiggly and firm
On top.
Cool completely before cutting.

This can feed up to 20 people especially when cut into small pieces and generously topped with fruit and whipped cream.

Thick Fruit Sauce

2 cups frozen fruit, thawed.
1/2 cup sweetener, like honey.
4 tbsp thickener like arrowroot or potato starch.

Mix all ingredients together while cold. Bring to boil and keep on until mixture turns clear (cooking the starch out).
Cool.
Eat with a spoon repeatedly to test it. 🙂

Do high fat drinks and foods make you nauseous or give you a stomach ache? It use to for me; instantly. I cured it with Swedish bitters which stimulates the production of bile to help you break down fats. Any bitter herbs are said to be able to do this.
You may also be low in stomach acid. That can be tested by using the beet test. Do beets make your pee red or pink? If so, you have low stomach acid. I increased mine with beet kvass, but you could also try raw apple cider vinegar, kombucha and other fermented foods.
