We had this delicious, satisfying coconut custard yesterday morning for breakfast. My daughter got the idea for making it from the recipe section of the book, Trim Healthy Mama, by Serene Allison and Pearl Barrett. She actually created her own recipe for it, I may just have to get it out of here so you can make it, too!

Trim Healthy Mama is new to our family in the last few months. It is a wonderful food plan that teaches how to eat from all the food groups God created, to lose weight. We are combining it with the GAPS Diet, and for us, it is going well.
We’ve been on the GAPS Diet for a little over a year and a half now. And my husband and I have lost quite a good deal of weight on it.
First, we went gluten free for a while. We lost a fair amount of weight. And we felt a lot better.
Then, we started the GAPS Diet introductory diet, lost more weight, and after the intro felt even better still.
Now, combining the principles of Trim Healthy Mama with the GAPS Diet, we are seeing more healing in our bodies. An increase in the health of our metabolisms. And more weight loss. Goal weight for each of us (whatever that is?! I think we'll know when we each get there!) is getting closer.
Trim Healthy Mama basically teaches food combining for weight loss, but they teach it in a way that does not eliminate any of the major food groups.
With the ideas in Trim Healthy Mama, I am more conscious about making sure I eat plenty of fats, proteins and carbohydrates regularly, if not every day. I am eating more often, my basal body temperature is increasing, and I have more energy. The quality of my sleep has improved, and I am waking up in the morning before my alarm rings.
And we get to eat delicious foods like the coconut custard you see, above.
We used stevia for this batch (which is technically not allowed on the GAPS Diet--shh, don’t tell anyone!), but for a fully compliant GAPS Diet follower, you will want to substitute with honey.
