Cassandra Cleghorn: Recipe Medley! First, I think this is a great idea, and so needed. I believe that people can eat well on a limited budget. Processed foods may be cheaper in the short run, but they sure can cost a lot when your health starts to suffer. So I always look at the “old produce” stand at the back of the supermarket. Often you will find avocados that are deemed too ripe, but have really just reached their peak, etc. And bags of (organic) frozen fruit often go on sale, watch for this, and stock up--often cheaper than fresh and way more practical. These recipes are vegetarian, vegan and paleo--no refined sugar, but yummy. Avocado/Grapefruit/Coconut Salad (One Serving--multiply as needed) Peel a grapefruit and cut into sections or rounds (mango or orange also work). Halve an avocado and cut into cubes or slivers. Cut a bit of red onion and perhaps a smidgen of jalapeno into super thin slivers. Combine in a bowl with a pinch of salt. Set aside. Put 1/4 cup of shredded, unsweetened coconut into a frying pan (no oil), heat slowly, stirring constantly, until it turns golden brown and starts to smell like heaven. (Careful, it can burn quickly in the final stages of toasting.) Here’s the fun part: pour the coconut right from the hot pan into the bowl of other ingredients. Listen to the sizzle and stir. Eat soon, when the coconut is still warm.
