Coconut Flour Rosemary Baked Cod

With the leaves finally changing in Brooklyn and the days getting shorter, I’m ready for all of the warming, hearty foods…something cozy and nourishing that fill up my belly and my soul! Thankfully, Whole Foods is having an awesome couple of sales this week, including avocados for $1 (yep, you read that right! STOCK UP!), fresh Atlantic cod for $8.99/lb, and 25% off of body care on Friday, October 6th!

As weird as it may seem, one of my favorite ways to be imaginative with recipes is using the sales at Whole Foods. It just further proves to me that the limit does not exist when it comes to creativity! So what can I make combining cod and avocadoes?

Coconut-flour rosemary crusted baked cod, cauliflower mash, and sautéed Swiss chard, all drizzled in a Thyme-avocado sauce of course!

Whether you’re a gluten-eater or completely paleo, this dish will satisfy everyone’s cravings, even the pickiest of eaters! Rosemary and thyme are also two of my favorite spices to use during the fall because they make any recipe just that much more lovely.

Along with the stars of the dish (cod, avocado, organic cauliflower, and organic swiss chard), you’ll need to make sure you have these staples on hand:

Organic Coconut Flour

Pastured Organic Eggs 

Turmeric

Rosemary

Thyme

Organic Grass-fed Ghee

Organic Coconut Milk

 I’m also always about not spending ages in the kitchen (only on meal prep days!), so this dinner can be ready within 30 minutes! Pretty good, huh?

Alright kids, I’m going to go throw a big sweater on and cozy up with a good Halloween movie while eating this plate! Let me know if you give it a try J Enjoy!
