Posts like this are probably the most important thing on my site to express my eating philosophy.

Because, I'm not gonna convert anyone over to the healthy lifestyle with rice cakes and carrots 🙂

…I'm from the camp of enjoying what you eat, just use the highest quality "Real Food" you can afford.

Since so many people ask me about wheat and flour, I actually went Grain Free for 2 years, but have since lightened up a bit.

Now, I just enjoy wheat/flour/bread occasionally, try to make it Organic, quality flour, especially since I've learned gluten issues may not be the wheat itself…

….but the issue may be the Glyphosate pesticide they spray on non-organic wheat is the "possible" source of Gluten intolerance symptoms .

Baking Tips so that Sweet Treats will no longer be "The Sweetest Taboo"….

My  "Sweetest Taboo" Rules are: 1) Avoid conventional dairy and stick to pasture raised real milk, cream, yogurt and butter grass fed butter list here    2) replace processed sugar with Healthy Coconut Palm Sugar    3) Use organic Flour/Cake Mix (since organic wheat can't "legally" be sprayed with Glyphosate, the possible cause of Gluten intolerance symptoms)

4) Pasture Raised eggs (whole Foods has them, expensive, but very good, and eggs are very good for you)   5) Swap in full fat Coconut Milk whenever you can (coconut is EXTREMELY Healthy   6) Buy all organic ingredients     7) I use Papaya Enzymes to digest Gluten, meat, and anything else   8) use Coconut Oil and avoid Toxic Canola like the plague!!!  
9) UMF Manuka Honey is the perfect sweetener for raw "Sweat Treats" (you could try it in baked desserts, but it has a tendency to burn, and also, heat kills those expensive nutrients).  10) My List of Sweeteners to Avoid

Once you learn how to "flip" your sweet treats to healthy, they will no longer be "The Sweetest Taboo"..

…however, I am supposed to be working, but instead, looking at photos of The Point House in The Turks and Caicos Islands in the Caribbean….beach front villas are still my "Sweetest Taboo"    yep 🙂

Sade: "The Sweetest Taboo"

(ENJOY!!!! …while you take a "cyber-tour" of the Crib 🙂 )

 

…about the crib

The inspired Point House graces the western end of Parrot Cay's exquisite northern beach, and borders a pristine Nature Reserve, Rocky Point, immediately to the west, enjoying solace and privacy, just a short distance to the COMO Parrot Cay award-winning resort amenities and facilities.

Point House's dramatic arrival area features a large limestone porte-cochere leading in to the welcoming entry foyer, into the dining and ultra-high ceiling living space. The Main House features 2 large beach level Master Bedrooms on opposite ends of the home, with elevated bed levels stepping down to built-in lounge and daybed areas, each opening to expansive decks towards to the signature Balinese volcanic rock negative-edge pool, and ocean beyond.

The home's second level boasts a spacious 3rd bedroom with dramatic views through the living area's two story space, and is complete with en-suite bath and private balcony. The beach level also features a 3rd bedroom/study with its full en-suite bath allowing it to double as a 4th bedroom when desired.

Including the fully independent One Bedroom Guest house flanking the entrance to the property, the entire estate comprises 5 bedrooms as desired spanning approximately 5,200 internal SF (including the 720 SF Guest House), and 7,000 SF total under roof.

The sand-colored stone flooring in the main living areas, juxtaposed with the richness of the hardwoods used throughout on wall and ceiling surfaces, sophisticated Balinese accessories and hand-crafted solid Teak furniture, and wide-plank white oak flooring in the bedrooms, showcase the open and clean spaces. Bathrooms feature sinks and vanities carved out of single pieces of stone.

Furnishings comprise custom large solid Teak sofas and tables together with uniquely sourced pieces. Two breathtaking elevated Beach Cabanas with large daybeds feel as if they are suspended over the turquoise waters.
