Inflate the ball. Place the ball in the bowl to keep everything stable while you work. Starting at the top of the ball, glue driftwood pieces together (not to the ball) to form a basic lattice pattern around the ball. Continue to glue additional pieces of driftwood in and across the gaps until the ball is encased in a driftwood frame. When the glue is dry, deflate the ball and carefully slip it through one of the gaps to remove.

Preheat oven to 360°F.  Lightly spray baguette slices on both sides with oil spray, and place in a single layer on parchment-lined baking trays.  Bake for 12 minutes or until golden and crisp. Remove from oven and allow to cool.  Place all dressing ingredients in small bowl and whisk until well combined. Set aside.  Cook the bacon in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat, stirring for 3 minutes or until crisp and browned. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels.  Beat egg in a small bowl, and place the shredded coconut onto a plate. Working one at a time, dip shrimp into beaten egg and coat in coconut.  Place coated shrimp on a parchmentlined tray. Pour 1 inch of oil into a heavy-bottomed frying pan, and heat over medium heat.  Working in batches of 2–3, fry shrimp in hot oil until golden and crisp, about 1–2 minutes each side. Transfer cooked shrimp to a tray lined with paper towel.  Arrange lettuce onto serving plates and drizzle with dressing. Place shrimp and baguette slices onto plates, and sprinkle with bacon and Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.

In a large bowl mix amaranth, ground flaxseeds, almond flour, lima beans, and psyllium husks.  Stir in the oil and enough water to make a smooth dough. Add water just a little at a time so the mixture doesn’t become runny.  Season with salt.  Place the corn husks on the counter. Divide the mixture evenly, place in the middle of each leaf, and sprinkle with coconut sugar.  Wrap husks tightly around the dough, and tie the bundles with the raffia on each side to secure.  If you desire, dip the bundles into water colored with hibiscus flowers, giving the tamales a beautiful pink color.  Cook the tamales in a bamboo steamer over a large pot of boiling water for 45 minutes.  Place on a plate, carefully open, and top with pomegranate seeds and honey.
