Applegate Wienervention Kit Giveaway

Well, hello to some of my favorite people :)  It has been far, far too long.  My only excuse is that it has been quite a busy summer for the Coatney family…

We moved to a new home – one that can fit far more people than our tiny studio.  We are excited for the parties we will get to host here!

I also went to a wonderful doctor earlier in the summer to get some insight on the problems that still seem to linger even after eating Paleo for almost two years.  So far, so many answers have been given – which I am so thankful for.  An essential part of the treatment plan that I have been given is an even stricter diet than Paleo.  It’s called The Restoration Diet.  It has definitely stunted my creativity in the kitchen at times…leading to less blog inspiration.  But I am already starting to improve! So there is hope.

So let’s see, what else is new?  Oh yeah!

It’s the summer of the WIENERVENTION!!

Brought to you by Applegate.  

What is this Wienervention you ask?  WELL – it is a call for GOOD, HEALTHY hot dogs and NO more mystery meat.  What better day for this call than National Hot Dog Day!

One of my nightmares growing up was going to a cookout and finding the only menu item to be hot dogs.  Can I have ketchup with a little bit of hot dog please? Seriously, I used to hate hot dogs. This changed the day I stumbled upon Applegate’s Organic Grass-fed Beef hot dogs.  Ingredients?  Beef, water, and spices.  That’s all!  AND guess what these hot dogs taste like…?  Delicious beef!

These hot dogs are so good I eat them plain.  Right out of the fridge. :) YUM.

And they are good enough to be the star of any cook out.

Applegate sent me this wonderful outdoor cookout kit!  So what I did with it?  I, of course, had a cookout, and invited the best hot dog eaters I know – my family.  Starring the two best eaters I know…

They were blown away by just how GOOD these hot dogs are.  The AWESOME condiments and buns Applegate sent were just icing on the cake (I mean hot dog!)  These included: Rick’s Relish, Annie’s Mustard, Annie’s Ketchup, and Rudi’s Gluten-Free Buns!

Coconut Contentment - Fresh Strawberry and Coconut Waffles

Waffles – Breakfast Champions

So the latest staple in the Coatney household – Waffles.  They can do anything.  Except the dishes – that would be AWESOME.  But seriously – they are super versatile.  I often make a huge batch on Sundays – enough for a whole week of breakfast or a before dinner snack ;)

Easy for grab and go.  Perfect for a sandwich.  Perfect to hold up a delicious piece of fried chicken.  AND OF COURSE – perfect to have on a Saturday morning with the ones you love – all drizzled with maple syrup or honey! And if you’re like me – you love-a some fruit on top!

Aww waffles…Champions.

So – here are my two FAVORITE ways to have waffles – and following there is a soooooo easy and quick waffle recipe. :)  Get those waffle irons heatin folks!

Fresh Strawberry and Coconut Waffles

Coconut Contentment Paleo Fresh Strawberry and Coconut Waffles

These are super simple, of course.  Simply top a waffle or two (or three) with fresh cut strawberries and coconut flakes.

Coconut Contentment - Fresh Strawberries

I love to add a dab of coconut oil and drizzle a bit of maple syrup on top, as well.  And of course – any fruit can be placed on waffles!

Breakfast Waffle Sandwich

Optional fillings:

  • Fried eggs
  • Bacon
  • Sausage
  • Avocado or guacamole
  • Mayo
  • Dijon Mustard
  • Salt and Pepper

Coconut Contentment Waffle Breakfast Sandwich (Paleo)

Prepare your fillings – I love just bacon and a fried egg on mine!

Once the fillings are about ready – Toast two waffles (I toast mine with a bit of coconut oil in our oven on broil) until beginning to crisp – 2-3 minutes.

Assemble! Devour :)

Paleo Waffles

Prep: 5 min          Cook: 8-10 min          Serves: 2-3 (Recipe easily doubled)

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup coconut/almond/dairy milk
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • Sprinkle of sea salt
  • Optional: 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Optional: 1-2 tbsp honey

Directions:

  1. Turn your waffle maker on – read the instructions before using if you haven’t!  Know your waffle maker – and get to know it better by making lots of waffles.
  2. Put all of the ingredients in a blender (or stir by hand for a little bit of exercise).  Add the honey and vanilla if you want a sweet waffle (ideal for breakfast or brunch).
  3. Now – cook ‘em! Make sure to grease with coconut oil/ghee in between each round. For my little waffle maker – which makes two normal size square waffles – these waffles are normally done in 8-10 minutes.
  4. Now serve how ya like it! Below are my favorite ways.  I highly recommend always adding a bit of melted coconut oil or ghee on top! Just wonderful any way you have them.

*I adapted this recipe a bit from Paleo Spirit‘s Pancake Recipe.
