Superfood Collection Growing

Featured here is coconut oil, bee pollen (which tastes incredible and amazing and its production doesn’t harm bees!), psyllium husk (which is great to make sure your digestive system is in tip top shape and awesome to use in gluten free baking), raw cacao powder (great smoothie addition especially with bananas and peanut butter), wheatgrass powder (new addition, will let you know how much I love it after I use it more) and my go to protein after a tough yoga class, chia seeds, which is awesome for puddings and thickeners in baking, egg replacements in baking, or smoothies.

 

What’s your favorite superfood and why?

Berry Minty Salad with Mixed Berries, Neem Honey Drizzle, and Pink Himalayan Salt

Hello happy healthy readers,

I hope everyone had a good Memorial Day Weekend! I know I did, and it was that much harder coming in to work today. But a day off in the beginning of the week means the weekend is that much closer. I meant to send a package of goodies over to my friend, and I did a great job with her letter but I am still figuring out the perfect dessert that flies well. Let me know what you guys think and if you have any suggestions!

The perfect summer berry salad with pink himalayan salt and neem honey drizzle. I am sure that I am not the first one to combine salt and fruit together, but the ingredients were on my shelf and I knew there was no going back.

Salt makes sweet taste sweeter. I guess you could apply that to life as well. I am sure This was also a hit at the BBQ I went to yesterday with some old friends and a good catch up session. I tried veggie hot dogs for the first time and I was very impressed. There was great company and there was good wine.

Try to use organic honey and organic berries.

Ingredients

2 cups mixed berries, I used blackberries, blueberries and strawberries because it is what I had on hand but you can use your favorite mix

1 tsp pink Himalayan salt

1 tablespoon neem honey

1/4 cup mint leaves, or more to taste

Directions

Wash berries and pat dry. Add honey to taste and mix, top with mint leaves and salt. Mix well and serve. This salad gets better the longer you let the salt break down the berries. Good for a day or two.

Can be made vegan if you sub agave for the honey.

Incredible Freezer Almond Butter Fudge

This is such a great invention. Who doesn’t like dessert that you don’t have to bake and takes 15 minutes or less to plop into a bowl and forget about in the freezer? I got the base recipe from a great site called, Detoxinista.com. Check out her recipe for basic almond butter freezer fudge! I started out with that and it was deliciously smooth, creamy, amazing goodness in a small chunk.

Ingredients

1 cup almond butter, organic if possible, and you can use peanut butter too for a denser fudge, or you can make your own! Post coming soon

Cinnamon, as desired

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

2 tablespoons raw honey, I used white raw honey

Pink Himalayan sea salt, a dash, optional

A swirl of melted dark chocolate chips, optional

Roasted almonds, chopped, optional

Chopped dates, optional

Directions

In a bowl, combine all bolded ingredients. In a baking pan or dish (I used a loaf pan because my freezer was packed), line with enough wax paper that the sides are covered. This will make it so that you can lift the frozen fudge out of the freezer and slice into your desired thickness. Pour mixture into the wax paper. Add toppings if desired, but it is great all on its own as well! Freeze 2 hours or until solid.
