Nut free Mango-Lime pies and finally - a clean cat!

Hi you all! I hope you're doing really well at the moment, where you are right now <3

I just gave some healing and that always make me feel connected, refilled and glowing. 

The cat is feeling better and better. He's eating very well, and becomes cuddlier and cuddlier. In the evenings he wants to play, so I play with him with great joy :) 

The other day we gave him a bath. Of course, it wasn't popular - at first, but boy did he enjoy being clean once dried up?? It's like the bath lifted his life quality to a whole new level! I've bathed dogs, but they some what seems to like being dirty, not really appreciate a clean fur, but I have a sense that cats are different. 

Now, when his clean, his allowed to sleep in our bed, which he loves of course. But in the night, he's kicked out from the bedroom.

I've been feeding him coconut oil, and the other day, I was in the middle of the making of some raw chai mousse, when he sat up and yowling watching me intensely. I then had one cup of coconut oil that I was just about to add to the food processor. So I got the hint and gave him half of a teaspoon coconut oil that he loved :) When I introduced him to the coconut oil, the first day he arrived, he was sceptic, but couldn't help but have a lick or two. This time he asked to have some, which makes me really happy :) 



Just came out from the shower, NOT happy!
Clean and dry, a whole new cat emerged! :D 

Some of you might not now that I have a food intolerance to nuts, especially almonds, which sadly are one of my favorite nuts. I need to stay clean from nuts for two years, then I can start eating them again. 

I made a nut free mango and lime pies. And with this recipe it's important to choose very ripe and sweet mangos. If you find persian honey mangos, than they would fit great in this recipe! You find the recipe in Swedish further down! 





Health benefits of mango:

• Good for the kidney

• Improves digestion - so good for people suffering from acidity, and it's full of enzymes that also helps the digestion. It has bio-active elements (esters, terpenes and aldehydes) that aids digestion too. 

• Lowers cholesterol - the high levels of soluble dietary fiber, pectin and vitamin C helps in lowering the the LDL cholesterol.

• For better sex - The vitamin E (which is abundant in mangos), regulates the sex hormones and boosts sex drive. 

• Memory and concentration - mangos are helpful for children who lack concentration in studies, as it contains glutamine acid, which keep brain cells alive and functioning. 

• High in iron

• Helps against acne - mangos hepls in clearing clogged pores. Slice the mango in thin pieces and place on your face for 10-15 min and wash your face with warm water. 

• Prevents Cancer & Heart disease - it's the high amounts of anti oxidants in mangos that fights cancer and heart diseases, it also lowers the cholesterol.

Han ser strålande ut! Lustigt nog finns det massor med information ute i cyberspace om katter som är fullständigt galna i kokosfett. Trillade över det för några veckor sedan på någon Raw sida.. Kram<3

I totally fell in love with them! Their mango-ish color makes me smile when I look at them - I'd like to have one of them in the morning <3

These look delicious! And your blog is lovely. :) I have a question about the recipe. I would love to make these tarts, but I am allergic to lemon, lime, and all citrus fruit. Is the lime necessary, or could I use a different fruit juice instead?
