    Food and drink


    1 ½ Cups Raw Sunflower Seeds

    1/4 Cup Tahini

    1/4 Cup Sunflower or Avocado oil

    1 Cup Grilled Squash

    1/2 Cup Jemon Juice

    1/2 cup Water, depending on desired consistency

    2-3 Garlic Cloves or 1 TBSP Minced garlic

    1/2 Cup Fresh Dill

    1 tsp Himalayan sea salt


    Add sunflower seeds, squash, garlic, sea salt, and lemon juice to food processor and blend well.

    Add tahini, mix for about 1 minute.

    While your food processor is mixing, stream in your oil.

    At this point, your dip will still be thick, so add water a little at a time until it’s a creamy texture.

      Mashed Potatoes? YES PLEASE!!

        Cauliflower Mashed “Potatoes”
        Vegan, Gluten Free
        Happily serves 2-4
        food processormicrowaveoil

        2 Cups Cauliflower
        1/4-1/2 Cup Almond Milk
        1/4 Cup Butter or Avocado oil
        1/4-1/2 Cup Coconut Cheese
        1/2 TBSP Sea Salt
        1 tsp Minced onion or 1/8 cup Fresh onion
        1 Garlic Clove
        Optional: IF you don’t have fresh herbs you can use dried spices
        2 Sage Leaves
        2 Basil Leaves

        Chop cauliflower, or use “riced” instead, it’s easier and faster. Steam/cook/cauliflower 7-10 minutes.
        Room temperature butter or soften on the stove (not microwave)
        Add ingredients to the food processor and blend until smooth.

        You can adjust the milk and cheese to the consistency you like. You can use coconut milk but it changes the texture when it gets cold.

        I used the So Delicious brand cheese so it remains dairy free.

        Did I hear BACON? Can Bacon be healthy?


          Vegan “Facon Bacon” is the best kind of “Bacon” in my option! Heart healthy coconut chips, Coconut Aminos have naturally occurring electrolytes our body needs, Sunflower oil has high Vit E and extra Iron, and Maple syrup has essential trace minerals.
          This recipe is SO EASY!!!
          Food and drink Heart healthy coconut chips oil
          Vegan, Gluten Free
          Happily serves 8


          2 Cups Shredded Coconut
          1 TBSP Sunflower Oil
          2 TBSP Coconut Aminos
          1/2 tsp Liquid smoke
          1 TBSP Maple syrup
          1 tsp Smoked Paprika

          Mix all ingredients except coconut, then thoroughly mix in Coconut flakes.
          You can let this sit, or bake right away. You can also eat this raw in this form or bake it.
          325 for 5 minutes then flip and stir, bake another 5 minutes
          Watch closely as it will burn quickly.
          Important to let cool for 10 minutes so it can crisp up.

          You can store it in the fridge, that is my preference when it becomes crisp.
          Eat plain or top with your salad off or line a lettuce with it, add veggies and you have a “Bacon” wrap!
