Bieler’s Broth

I think calling this concoction a ‘broth’ is very hopeful, or maybe they just chose that title because it rolls of the tongue so nicely. In reality it’s more of a vegetable puree. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, I just don’t want you to be misled.

Raw Carmel Dip for Apples and Deserts

I would love to take credit for this amazing (and simple! and nutritious!!!) desert, but I can’t. It comes from one of my favorite sites: Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen. The author of this site is truly brilliant and I devour almost every recipe I’ve made from the site; they’re all delicious. Kids and adults alike swarm around this desert until every last apple slice has been dipped and every sticky finger has been licked clean.

Kale Chips

Kale chips last about as long as it takes them to cool down in my house. It’s an incredibly effective way to eat a LOT of greens all at once! They are pretty comparable to regular chips in terms of tastiness and ‘you can’t eat just one-ness’, but you get to control how much salt goes on them and anything else you can think of.

Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Corn Bread

I have to admit that gluten-free baking is not my forte. I`ve been blessed to be tolerant of gluten, so wheat free does it for me meaning that I`ve had no need to seriously explore the world of sorghum and rice flours. Luckily, there are others out there who are very, VERY good without gluten in their larder: www.glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.com/. Goddess is a very appropriate word for this woman as she pumps out amazing gluten-free recipes and charm in every post she delivers. She also has somewhat of a fixation on chocolate which no one seems to be complaining about either. Enjoy this lovely bread with a hot bowl of Moroccan Yam Soup or simply by itself with a bit of butter.

Pickled Beet Carpaccio

This is a truly elegant dish. The combination of the pickled beets with the spiced honey makes for tart yet earthly sweet melange.
Beets are great liver cleansers and are very high in iron, making them a great blood building food. Combining this dish with some steamed greens or a summer salad will keep your body cleansed and energetic.
