Raw Pesto/tomato and spirulina green seed crackers


I have seen crackers like these that were very over priced at health food stores and I have always wanted to try making them for myself. Turns out they are super easy to make and really delicious! You can do any flavor combinations you want! If you add oregano and more sun dried tomatoes to my pesto crackers you will have pizza flavored crackers. Great for kids snacks or snacks on the run! You can put avocado or hummus on top or any dip that sounds tasty. These would be awesome crumbled up on salads too!

Curried root and fruit salad


I love the sweet and savory mix of curry dishes. My kids cant’t get into it but as a kid I probably wouldn’t have appreciated these combinations of flavors either. Turmeric is a super food and does amazing things for your body so I try to eat it often. I almost always make every salad with a lot of different textures of foods including nuts, seeds and dried fruits.

Curried root and fruit salad

1 apple chopped

2 large carrots chopped

large handful of grapes

1/2 cup chopped beets

2 tablespoon full fat coconut milk

2 teaspoons lemon juice

handful of yellow raisins

1 tablespoon sesame seeds

2 tablespoons unsalted pistachios

2 teaspoons curry powder

top with shredded coconut (optional)

Mix the coconut milk, curry powder and lemon juice together in a separate bowl then add to the salad and mix together.
