A raw version of Rocky Road Fudge… Rawky Road?

I thought it was clever.   🙂

This is so simple and SO yummy… my five year old asked for three pieces this evening!

What you’ll need…

  • 1/2c of coconut oil
  • 1/2c of soak, pitted dates
  • 1/4c of raw cacao powder
  • 1/4c of chopped almonds
  • 1/4c of chopped walnuts
  • 2tbsp of shredded coconut

 

Place the oil, dates and cacao into the food processor and process until smooth.

Remove the blade and stir in the remainder of the ingredients.

Place the mixture into a parchment lined loaf pan, pack it in tight and into the freezer it goes for about thirty minutes.

Slice into small squares and store in the freezer.

Make sure you share with your friends so you’re not tempted to eat more than you should!  🙂

Oh, these are so good!

I know it looks quite similar to the previous post, but it doesn’t taste anything like it.   🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1/2c of chopped parsnip
  • 1/4c of raw cashews
  • ½ sheet of (raw)   nori
  • 1 cucumber
  • ½ an avocado

Remove the skin from your cucumber.

Using a vegetable peeler, slice your cucumber into ‘ribbons’ lengthwise. Set aside.

Place the parsnip, cashews and nori into your food processor and process until well combined, kind of resembling rice.  🙂

Spread about a tablespoon of the parsnip mixture down the middle of the cucumber ribbon, leaving a bit of room at each end. Roll up like a sushi roll, top it with a piece of avocado and enjoy!

Super simple and super nutritious!

Happy, healthy eating y’all!

Zucchini Roll Ups!

YUM!

Using a carrot or potato peeler, peel the zucchini lengthwise.

You should get about twelve thin strips from one medium sized zucchini.

Make the pesto of your choice.

Lay a zucchini strip down and spread a generous amount of pesto over it leaving about half an inch at the end. Roll the zucchini up, toward the end with no pesto and voila!

Make one, eat one.  🙂

Today we made a kale & pistachio pesto…

Ingredients for the pesto:

  • 1 bunch of kale
  • 1 bunch of basil
  • 1/2c of raw pistachios
  • 1/4c of olive or hemp oil
  • 1 or 2 cloves of garlic
  • a pinch of Himalayan salt

Place all of the ingredients into a food processor and process until well combined, resembling a paste.

Yummy afternoon snack or early evening appy!

I think we may have stumbled onto something here.   🙂

I’ve never big a super big fan of raw cauliflower, but I can’t stop eating this one! It so good for you and very simple to throw together.

Finely chop one head of cauliflower and one bunch of kale. Toss into a bowl and set aside.

Place half a cup of cilantro, a quarter cup of flaxseed oil and one or two cloves of garlic into your food processor and process until well combined.

Pour the ‘dressing’ over your cruciferous veggies and mix well. Sprinkle a few pomegranate seeds over the top, maybe a few pistachios and try to share!

Happy, HEALTHY New Year!
