Creamy Custard

 custard

My favourite creamy breakfast. Custards filled with raw milk, cream and our favourite power food – egg yolks! This is a great warm treat during the winter and a fabulous way to incorporate the high vitamin D, choline and iron that comes in pastured yolks of an egg.

I know many people go threw a hard time during the winter with the lack of vitamin D, from the sunshine. Eating a higher diet of free-range, traditionally raised, pastured eggs or just their yolks like in this recipe will help with the brain chemistry and the decline of vitamin D in the body. Butter is also favourable, as well as fermented fish oils or if you cant find that, fish oil capsules from small fish, like sardines at your natural food store. Ingesting vitamin D packed foods and taking those warm winter days to go get a face full of sunshine outside will do wonders for those long 3 months.

You can add this recipe to the list if you have started your baby on yolks at 6months.  If you haven’t this would be a great time to start, or to do your own research on why egg yolks are so favourable for young growing brains.

Like I mentioned above egg yolks are packed with vitamin D (a whole food form and not from a synthetic vitamin) cholesterol, choline and iron which is all so absolutely important for a baby’s developing brain.

If you have a child who reacts (like my girl did) by either throwing up every time or having loose stool, take him/her off the yokes for a few months and then try again. If it still happens again repeat and re-try in a baked good for a couple weeks instead of on its own. Sometimes the stomach can’t handle the richness of the yoke just yet.
