    Warm Kale & Brussels Salad

    As it gets cold we start craving hearty dishes.  Now, these can be healthy, but we often find ourselves grabbing for comfort food.  This salad gives you a hearty, warming feeling while still being extremely  healthy.  Like vegan, gluten free, extra clean ingredients healthy. The superstars of this dish: Pomegranate and hemp seeds give this dish (and any other salad) the perfect crunchy, sweet yet nutty flavor.  Health Heroes: Think deep colors when choosing produce because of their antioxidants.  All of the fruits and vegetables in this salad are packed with anti-inflammatory, anti-carniogeneic properties.  Also, hemp seeds-they are filled with heart healthy fats.   Enjoy!  Yum

    Coconut Chia Pudding

    Chia pudding is my favorite snack because it’s super rich in fiber protein and omega-3 fatty acids.  It’s also two ingredients and super simple to make.  WARNING: The texture is weird- it’s gooey and sort of indescribable – but oddly crave-worthy. My favorite chia seeds are called Salba Chia they are higher in protein and omega-3’s compared to regular chia seeds.
