1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Optional: unsweetened cocoa nibs

1) Preheat oven and make dough: Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. In food processor, add coconut, sesame seeds, dates, ginger, and salt and blend until seeds are all pureed in. It will take 5-7 minutes.

Place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, until golden on the bottom. Immediately after removing cookies from oven, gently press them flat with the bottom of a small drinking glass so they look like cookies instead of mounds. 3) Store: Allow cookies to cool and store them in an airtight container for up to five days or freeze for up to three months.

Lemon cookies: Swap the 2 teaspoons of ginger for 1 teaspoon of finely grated lemon peel and 3 tablespoons lemon juice (1 lemon).

SUPERFOOD BREAKFAST BOWL

Ingredients

2 organic eggs

1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil

2 cups kale, chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 cup cooked quinoa

1/3 avocado, sliced

sea salt

cayenne pepper

optional add-ins: quality sharp cheddar & hot sauce

Directions

1) Make eggs: In a small pan, over medium heat, scramble eggs in 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil. 2) Make sautéed garlic kale: In same pan, over medium heat, sauté kale in garlic and remaining 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil. 3) Assemble bowl: In a medium bowl, add kale and top with warm egg & quinoa. Top with avocado, salt & cayenne pepper.

NOTE: Swap quinoa for brown rice or roasted potatoes.

TIME SAVERS: Make lots of kale in advance & keep in fridge for breakfast all week OR use uncooked baby spinach in place of sautéed kale at bottom of bowl & it will wilt perfectly from the hot eggs & quinoa.

PB & FLAX ENERGY BITES

Ingredients

3 tablespoons rolled oats

2 tablespoons natural crunchy peanut butter

1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds

1/8 teaspoon ground vanilla beans (optional, but recommended!)

You can swap out the same amount of peanut butter + flax for: cashew butter + hemp seeds, almond butter + chia seeds, sun butter + sunflower seeds.

Directions

1) Stir and portion: In a small bowl, mix oats, peanut butter, flaxseed, and vanilla. The mixture will be super thick. Portion it out into four tablespoon-size bites and roll each in your hands to form balls. 2) Store: Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week. You can make extras and freeze them for up to three months. For taking these on the go, I love popping them into unbleached, paper sandwich bags. If you don’t have these bags, get them in health-food stores or online. 3) OH YEAH, ONE MORE THING…Flavorize: Change it up by adding 1/4 cup raisins, unsweetened dried cherries, or mini dark chocolate chips. GF Swap: Use gluten-free oats or quinoa flakes.

ABEL JAMES’ RECIPES FOR “THE WILD DIET”

FATTY COFFEE

Ingredients

2 cups hot French-pressed coffee from hand-roasted, fair-trade, organic beans

About 1 tablespoon grass-fed whipping cream, butter, or ghee

About 1 teaspoon MCT Oil, full-fat coconut milk, or coconut oil (optional)

Directions

Boil purified water.

Coarsely grind roasted coffee beans.

Add ground coffee to French Press, and pour hot water over the top.

Stir with a wooden spoon.

Steep for 3-5 minutes, then press down on the top of the French Press.

Meanwhile, pour hot water in your mug to warm. Empty hot water from mug, and pour in coffee.

 Add any add-ins you’re using like grass-fed cream or butter, MCT oil, coconut oil, and/or spices.

Using a handheld milk frother, skim along the mixture just below the surface. The frother will whip air into the coffee mixture and a nice froth will begin to form on the top. Fully immerse the frother a couple of times just to mix everything up underneath.

Enjoy.

BONE BROTH

Ingredients

Grass-fed beef bones, chicken carcass or any mixture of bones from wild or pasture-raised, healthy animals

Purified water

1 tablespoon vinegar (apple cider or white)

 

 

Instructions

1. Place bones into a large crockpot. You only need a few bones to make broth, but the more you can fit in the crockpot the better.

2. Fill with filtered water to cover all the bones completely (it’s okay if there are a few bones poking out of the water a little).

3. Add a splash (about 1 tablespoon) of vinegar.

4. Set your crockpot on low, and cook for at least 6 hours, preferably longer. Poultry bones can go as long as 24 hours, and beef bones can simmer for up to 48 hours.

5. When the crockpot is cool enough to handle, pour the broth through a sieve into a storage container or use tongs to pick the bones out.

6. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Use within 5 - 7 days or freeze for later.

Notes

After cooling in the refrigerator, you may get a thick layer of fat on top of your broth. See below for uses for this fat.

ULTIMATE BACON CHEESEBURGER

Ingredients

1 (12-ounce) package nitrate-free/nitrite-free bacon

1 pound grass-fed ground beef

2 tablespoons coconut aminos

1 small yellow onion

1 tablespoon grass-fed butter (or leftover bone broth butter)

1 beefsteak or vine-ripened red tomato (organic)

4 leaves fresh broad-leafed lettuce (See note below for our Sweet Potato Bun recipe instead of using lettuce wraps)

Sea salt and cracked black pepper

4 ounces grass-fed cheddar cheese (optional)

1 tablespoon grainy garlic mustard

Pickle spears, for serving

Instructions

1. Divide the bacon slices into two portions, saving 4 to 8 slices to go on top of the burgers. Mince or chop the remaining slices as fine as possible and place in a large bowl.

2. Add the ground beef and coconut aminos to the minced bacon and use your hands to mix them together.

3. Divide the burger mixture into four equal portions, flattening each portion into a patty with the palms of your hands.

4. In a skillet, heat the other portion of bacon over medium-low heat, slowly rendering the fat from the bacon as you cook it. Once done, set bacon aside and reserve bacon fat in the skillet.

5. Peel the onion and slice it into rings. Grease another skillet with butter, and cook onion slices over medium heat until caramelized.

6. Cut the tomato into thick slices, and set aside for serving.

7. Rinse the lettuce and pat dry. Set aside for serving.

8. Heat the skillet with bacon fat over medium heat.

9. Season the burger patties with salt and pepper and place in the bacon greased skillet. Cook until the underside is browned, about 3 to 5 minutes. Flip the burgers and cook for another 4 to 6 minutes more, until the meat is cooked through but the outside is not charred. If using cheese, add cheese during the last minute in the skillet.

10. For each burger, lay a lettuce leaf on a plate and top with a burger, tomato, raw or caramelized onion, bacon, and garlic mustard. Serve with a pickle spear on the side.

Notes

These burgers can also be cooked on the grill. See page 172 of The Wild Diet for grilling instructions.
