Chocolate Coconut Raw Food Energy Bars. ( an alternate to Brownies )
This is a perfect energy bar full of nuts, berries and seeds that will curb your hunger and look after any cravings. As it is full of nuts and seeds it is a great protein source and would be a good snack.
2 C pitted Dates
1/3 C agave nectar
½ C cashew butter
1 C ground almonds
½ C pumpkin seeds
½ C Hemp seeds
¼ C chia seeds
¼ C sesame seeds
½ dried Goji berries
½ C coconut
2/3 C organic chocolate chips or cocoa nibs.
Mix all ingredients well in food processor. Spoon into 8 x 8 pan. ( I used a 9 x 13”) Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before cutting. Cut very small as they are filling, and individually wrap.
It filled the food processor, so I ended up processing it in two batches. I added a bit of cocoa powder as well, used hazelnut butter instead of cashew, and added nearly ¼ C warm water to help it mix. Maybe try adding some cayenne? Yum. Could be rolled into balls.

|Give Barley a Try|
|Looking for a whole grain to add variety to your dinner plate? Willing to try a new flavor? Consider barley.

|Coconut Cauliflower Turmeric Rice|
|Category: Side Dishes|
Description: One of the best things about Winter is the food, hands down. After a summer of grillin' and chillin', I am feeling a strong call from my stove - it's lonely, it needs some loving. Cauliflower rice totally rocks as an alternative to grains, but what if we could kick it up a notch, maybe give it a little Indian/Thai flavor so that is pairs perfectly with curried chicken and veggies? The answer lies below (and it's delicious).
In addition to being a super low-carb version of a pantry staple, cauliflower is packed with Fiber, Vitamin C, Magnesium, and Vitamin B-6. Even though coconut milk and coconut oil are high in fat, it's the best kind of fat out there. Also, coconut has a plethora of health and beauty benefits including a slimmer waistline, shinier hair, and clear, luminous skin. As a bonus, the cardamom in this dish has detoxifying and anti-inflammatory properties.
