Cucumber and Tomato Salad With Green Goddess Dressing

When the ingredients are REAL, local and organic, everything just seems to taste better. The cucumbers and tomatoes are from our garden, so this salad was extra fresh and special to us. The superfood green goddess dressing is one of our favorites. It’s oil free with a tahini base.  We used spirulina, a blue-green algae, to add additional nutrients. Spirulina has a high percentage of protein and iron, as well as all eight essential amino acids, potassium, zinc, calcium, and […]

Beet, Cucumber and Avocado Salad

Took less than 10 minutes! For a heartier salad, add in any lean protein and enjoy! My husband enjoyed it with grilled chicken and in a sprouted Ezekiel tortilla wrap. I added in sprouted organic almonds […]

Chickpea Salad–A Simple 5 Minute Meal

We love this chickpea dish for its versatility. Prep a big batch and then enjoy it all week in a variety of ways! This is our vegan and gluten free version of a healthy tuna or chicken salad, loaded with protein, fiber and omega 3s (healthy fat!). It takes 5 minutes to toss together and you can enjoy it so many ways. Try serving it over a chopped spinach salad, make a “melt” on an Ezekiel bread or tortilla, fold in some chopped […]

Warm Cauliflower ‘Couscous’ with Herbs and Kale

We were entertaining and wanted to prepare something different than the traditional green salad. So, we came up with this fresh, bright and detoxing 10 minute low-carb goodness! The beautiful local herbs inspired us along with the lovely green cauliflower. We adore warm veggies or grains on salads. The warm grated cauliflower creates a couscous like texture that melts into the fresh herbs and olive oil. Bliss. The spicy pepitas sautéed with cayenne add a richness and pop. Serve as […]
