This has got to be my FAVOURITE dinner of all time. I don’t really know how I came up with this but I’m so glad I did.
The best parts about this recipe? It’s gluten free and dairy free! Who knew a dish without two of my favourite things could be this good! You have to try it for your self! This recipe is for approx 2-3 people.
1.5 cups chunky apple sauce
1 cup coconut sugar
6 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons of organic stone ground mustard
500g NITRATE FREE sausage
1 cup quinoa and sprouted rice bled
Cut sausage into 1/4 inch pieces and put into a pan on low heat for 30 minutes. Flip and put them on for another 15 minutes. While your waiting, mince garlic. Once the sausage is fully cooked add apple sauce, coconut sugar, garlic and mustard to the sausage. Next boil 1 3/4 cup of water in a separate pot, reduce to low and add 1 cup of the quinoa blend. Cook for 25 minute then let rest for 5. By that time the sausage should be ready. Voila your dinner is ready!
I think the best thing to remember when cooking is that a recipe is just a GUIDE. If you want less sugar, then go and use less sugar. If you want more garlic then do it! Although I do think this recipe is pretty awesome and I’ve never heard a complaint;)
My two favourite store bought Lara bars are the apple one and the coconut one. Now I will admit for the ones I make, I do like the coconut cream Lara bars the best, however this is my husbands new favourite.
These are great for pre/post workout or just if you are feeling snacky. A whole batch doesn’t last a day in our house!
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup almonds
1 cup of dried apple
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons of water
Put the walnuts, cinnamon and almonds in a food processor and blend until ground up. Then add the dried apple and dates. Blend again. If needed add the water as well. Once the ingredients start to look doughy, place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Either roll up into balls( less work) or shape the mixture into a square about half an inch thick. Place them in the fridge for a few hours or until they have hardened. Then cut and enjoy! I suggest keeping them in the fridge in an air tight container.
This has got to be my new favourite dessert, the best part? It’s healthy! This is a great recipe for one of those hot days!
1/4 cup of milk ( almond, cow, coconut)
Cut up the banana and freeze over night. Once frozen, place the bananas in the blender, then add a cut up mango and 1/4 of milk. Blend until smooth. It should be very thick. Then place in a bowl and add some cut up strawberries. That’s it! Makes for two people.
This is the easiest thing you will ever make and it’s so yummy! The best thing about this recipe is you can customize it to what you want! You can add nuts, strawberries, what ever you want! I think this is my favourite mix though. It serves two generously.
Please don’t mind the picture. My phone died and I had to wait for it to charge enough to take the picture. I will get a better picture later.
5 frozen bananas
1/4 cup of milk (almond milk would work too)
2 tbls of cacao powder
Combine ingredients into a blender or food processor. If you want it thicker just don’t add the milk! I like my ice cream soft though. Hope you enjoy!
Lara bars happen to be my favourite energy bar. Although Lara bars from the store are healthy, they can be quite expensive. On top of that, I like to tweak a recipe for my liking.
The nice thing about making these bars is that there is not a lot of prep time and they never go in the oven. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
2/3 cup almonds
2/3 cup raw shredded coconut
25-30 small dates
1/3 cup melted coconut oil
1 tsp water
Take the almonds and coconut and put in a food processor until blended fine. Then add the dates and coconut oil. You want the ingredients to stick together. Add the water if its too dry.
After you’ve achieved your desired consistency. Place on a baking pan that’s covered with waxed paper. Then press down the mixture with your hands until flat and about half an inch thick. Place in fridge for a few hours. Once it is hardened you can cut it into strips. It made 15 for us.
