Apple Peach Ham
3 pound white ham
2 large apples (I like gala)
2 yellow peaches
2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon all spice
1/4 cup full fat coconut milk
Preheat oven to 350 Degrees. Rinse the ham under cold water and pat dry with a paper towel and place in the middle of your roasting pan.
Mix the coconut milk, dijon mustard, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and all spice in a bowl. Using a basting brush, baste your ham with your glaze.
Now core your apples and take the pit out of your peaches and chop in large slices. I had 8 slices per apple and 8 slices per peach. Spread your fruit all around your ham in the roasting pan, and then baste the fruit with your glaze and then baste your ham once more.
Place your ham in the oven and bake until it reaches an internal temperature of 150 Degrees Fahrenheit. Every 20-30 minutes add more glaze to your ham until completion.
Once your ham reaches 150, remove from the oven and tent with aluminum foil for 15 minutes. Slice and serve with your spiced fruit.
Sweet Potato Biscuits:
1 cup sweet potato, peeled and cubed
1/4 cup ghee or grass-fed butter
2 eggs2 teaspoons fresh rosemary
2 teaspoons fresh sage
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
1 teaspoon fresh tarragon
2 cups blanched almond flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
Boil or steam the sweet potato cubes until tender and easily pierced with a fork, about 10 minutes. Strain them, and run them under cool water.
In a food processor, puree the sweet potato cubes with the butter, eggs, rosemary, sage, thyme, and tarragon until smooth.Add the almond flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar, and pulse until the ingredients are fully incorporated.
The dough should be firm and pliable but not quite dry enough to roll out. If your dough is wetter than this, add additional almond flour to the dough as needed, and pulse until the consistency is right.
Form the dough by hand into 8 biscuits of about 2 1/2 inches in diameter and place on a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake the biscuits at 350°F for 15-18 minutes until the top begins to brown and the biscuits are almost firm all the way to the center.

1 haas avocado

Coconut Fried Bananas:

Remove the peel from the banana and slice into 1/2 inch thick slices.Set a nonstick skillet over medium to medium high heat and add the oil and peanut butter. Let the oil melt and then add in sliced bananas.
Next drizzle the honey and cinnamon over the bananas and fry for 4-5 minutes on each side.I allowed them to cool in the frying pan and then served them with the end of the meal so they were nice and warm.
