Snappy Snacks

Quick healthy snack ideas, packed with nutrients, proteins and energy! When choosing a dip, dairy or bread product, you will feel the difference keeping it REAL (or real vegan) and organic or source you trust!

Popcorn, sunflower or pea shoots are delicious on their own or try a dip!

Crackers, cheese and flavourful microgreens like radish, arugula or mustards stacked up

Fast grilled cheese; bread, cheese and broccoli, kale, red cabbage or kohlrabi is great! The quick heat actually will help release some extra goodness, just keep it low.

Grab a wrap (leaf or bread), toss in veggies diced up with a few micros, add a dressing if you must. Lettuce, kale or swiss chard are nice and can be colourful!

Quick coleslaw; grate up fairly fine: carrots, cauliflower, beets, cabbage and sweet potatoes. Drizzle with an oil (sunflower, avacado or olive), add one capful of ACV per cup of coleslaw and mix it up! The fatty oils and ACV help break down the live enzymes in the raw veggies, making them much easier to digest!!

Super Sandwiches!

Sandwiches are the easiest way to sneak in those extra veggies!  With flavours like radish, mustard and arugula, you can turn any sandwich into something you find in high end restaurants!  Be the green of envy! 

Start with your favorite style of bread (wrap, pita, leaf, etc.)  We recommend you use organic sprouted grain bread products.  Helps the guts process everything while adding the good stuff!  Best to avoid white breads and non organic, gmo produce…enough research has been done linking these foods to diseases and digestive disorders.

Add a homemade (or your fave) mayonnaise, mustard and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Next are the greens (purples, reds or yellows), sliced peppers, tomatoes (unless you are avoiding nightshades), cucumbers and microgreens!  Our favorite flavours are arugula, mustard or cress. 

If you want to skip the processed meats, try adding a bean shoot or buckwheat chopped up!  More amino acids and nutrients.  Plus you miss the ugly side effects from those additives!  Just pure raw energy for your busy days or kids lunches, whether homeschooled or school.

Give that immune system a boost!

As we are ending summer and begin our journey into fall, we usually are thinking of our seemingly endless to-do list before….well, I won’t say! This year has affected our whole being, which in turn affects our natural immune defense. This is also the time of year that we are most exposed to anything going around. Having been here on earth for thousands of years, our immune system knows this! It needs us to rest more, stress less and eat well to function at it’s best. My next posts I will give you as many recipes as I can, tested and loved by us and our 5 children! Let’s get those immune systems up and naturally feel better, all the time!

Simple Gut healthy Salad

Help reset your hypothalamus gland by starting your meals off right! Fix your gut at the same time! If you want real weight loss and don’t want to have to worry about it all coming back after a silly diet, add this simple salad to your daily regimen and change your life!

Microgreens are so nutrient dense and we absorb them so easily this is a no brainer for your salad base. We don’t use lettuce anymore as there is so little nutrients and too many contaminants! Just use a nice mix of microgreens. Eat BEFORE your meal 2x per day.

The Salad!

Your choice of mircogreens, do at least one cup per person

The second most important factor is the dressing…..mix all ingredients and eat!

Oil (coconut or organic sunflower is best) 2 tbsp/person

Apple cider vinegar (organic) 1 tbsp/person

Raw (unpasturized/unfiltered) liquid honey (gently warm if solid) 1tbsp/person

*not fit for children under 1yr of age.*

Microgreen Texican Eggs! One of our favs!

Scramble up as many eggs as you need (typically 2 per person in our family). Once cooked to your liking, add organic non-gmo taco seasoning, salsa and your choice of cheese. Mix up well until cheese has fully melted. Remove from heat, add on top of your microgreen salad, mix in some organic non-gmo nachos, some sour cream….mmmmm….

Our favourite microgreens for this recipe are: Radish, Arugula, Broccoli, Wasabi and Kohlrabi. They are so nutrient dense and add such a beautiful flavour.

Try adding diced avacado for the extra good fats!
