Noodles!

February 18th, 2013 013

So simple.

Today we tried truRoots noodles… GF, whole grain, made from quinoa, amaranth and brown rice.

They’re pretty good as far as GF noodles go!  Definitely a keeper!  🙂

Cook and drain your noodles.

In the pot or a bowl…

Add in enough olive oil to coat the noodles, about one tablespoon of red star nutritional yeast per serving, a splash of (gf) tamari and a pinch of pepper. Give it all a toss and enjoy!

Sometimes we add in a mashed yam (the orange one) but not today.

So good.

And, if you haven’t added nutritional yeast to your grocery list… try it!

It has great flavour (awesome on popcorn!) and it contains the B vitamins, including B12.  🙂

Hope y’all had a great weekend!

Kale Chips…try them!

Here’s a great alternative to chips that you could serve this weekend!  They make a great crunchy snack and fit in with any group of appys!

Wash your kale well, especially if it’s organic!  Cute little bugs don’t really go so well with this recipe.

Place your (very) dry kale into a bowl and prepare to get a little messy.

Take about a teaspoon of organic nut butter… this time we used raw (homemade) almond/sunflower seed butter.

And, about a teaspoon of Maison Orphee organic coconut oil….it really is the best.  YUM!

With the tips of your fingers, gently massage the nut butter and coconut oil onto the kale… the chips turn out much better if they are all coated.

Then, sprinkle in a little bit of red star nutritional yeast and toss about.

Bake them in the oven… temperature should be on the lower side, maybe 250-275.  Check on them a couple of times and within 15 minutes you should have yourself a lovely little bowl of crunchy, healthy, good for you chips that make the perfect snack.  🙂

Salt is optional.  🙂

Happy, healthy eating y’all!

Kale Chips

October 12th, 2012 011 - Copy

We found some beautiful, local, organic baby kale yesterday… so exciting!

I would normally remove the stem from the kale before making the chips, but these leaves were so little and so delicate I didn’t want to fuss about too much.

Place your (very) dry kale into a bowl and prepare to get a little messy.

Take about a teaspoon of organic nut butter… this time we used raw (homemade) almond/sunflower seed butter.

And, about a teaspoon of Maison Orphee organic coconut oil….it really is the best.  YUM!

popcorn is a great snack!

Here’s another super simple, healthy snack for your beautiful babe’s lunch boxes!

You could also toss in some pumpkin seeds or unsweetened dried cranberries or a few dark chocolate chips?!?!

We enjoy this healthy snack so often that I wanted to share the idea again for those who may have missed it the first time around.  🙂

And… if you try this once, you just might be hooked!

Melt two tablespoons of coconut oil in a large pot and add just enough popcorn to cover the bottom – once the oil it hot.

As soon as it’s finished popping, sprinkle a small amount of sea salt (or himalayan…it’s fantastic and has the highest mineral content) and a generous amount of red star nutrional yeast and enjoy!!!

Sharing is good…….  🙂
