sally’s chocolate peanut butter balls

Sally’s chocolate and peanut butter balls are the perfect combo to ring in the New Year.For New Year’s Eve I decided to make this dessert and bring them along to our celebration – in addition to ringing in the New Year with awesome friends, my all-time favorite culinary combination of chocolate and peanut butter represented a healthy yet decadent way to bring in 2013.

gluten-free blueberry muffins

I am always interested in trying out different recipes that i can share with my friends, family and followers. This recipe caught my eye because of all of its awesome and powerful ingredients – it is truly a SUPER FOOD muffin.

raw chocolate almond truffles

Chocolate is one of the foods I can’t live without. Can you relate?? Because I don’t believe in deprivation, I have found ways to incorporate chocolate in healthful ways and these raw truffles are my latest discovery, thanks to The Sprouted Kitchen.

sally’s autumn healing soup

This soup is always a treat when the weather begins to cool down from a steamy summer. It offers immunity-boosting properties and nourishes the body with fiber and protein. The aduki beans are one of the easiest beans to digest. Adding in the kombu also aids in the digestion of the beans.

sally’s vegan lasagna

I have always loved lasagna. And through the years i have experimented with various vegetarian options. Now that my daughter is vegan (for the month of January), I came up with a lasagna that is so incredibly easy and tasty and she loves it (as does my husband!).

grated beet and seaweed salad

I recently bought some medium-sized red beets from the farmer’s market and was ready to try preparing them. I admit I haven’t cooked beets often and I was feeling a bit intimidated, but i found a recipe that sounded worth trying

stuffed acorn squash

I love the colors of Fall and especially all of the scrumptious squash that’s now in season. This evening I stuffed acorn squash with quinoa, collards, shiitakes, tomatoes, onions and garlic and it was heavenly.

teff peanut butter chocolate chip cookies

Every time i make these cookies, they fly out of the cookie jar. Teff flour is gluten free and loaded with fiber and minerals – I highly recommend it to those with gluten intolerance and those who just enjoy good cookies and want to add more fiber-rich foods in to their diet.

oatmeal walnut chocolate chip cookies

I wanted to share a fantastic cookie recipe that is so easy and nutritious. I just shared it with my weekly networking group and they gave it a thumbs up. Enjoy!

raw kale, orange, and avocado salad with grape tomatoes

This salad can be an entire meal if you add in a protein, such as pan-sautéed tofu (as shown in the picture), chicken, salmon or beef. I also serve it as a side salad…as usual, there are many options. Enjoy!
