It may take some sleuthing at your local natural foods store to find all the
ingredients for this trail mix, but it’s well worth the effort. Be sure to choose organic nuts and seeds whenever they’re available.
I created this recipe when I was on a highly restricted diet for 5 months, but I loved it so much that I adapted it a little and it's now a staple for us. It goes especially well with soup. They are also really good dipped in pretty much any kind of mustard, and my little one year old boy loves them. Feel free to experiment with any kind of rice you have on hand for this. I've used 11 different types of rice for it, and each time it was wonderful. It's a simple side dish, and sure to please anyone that comes through my door for a snack or a meal.
Kale a Super-food that your Children will eat as a snack or a side. Or the Guys to enjoy as chips during the game. If you have leftovers try them tossed in a salad, soup, pasta, rice, in a sandwich.....
One cup of raw kale contains 15% of the recommended daily value of calcium and Vitamin B6, 40% of the magnesium, 180% of the Vitamin A, 200% of the Vitamin C and a whopping 1020% of the Vitamin K. Also loaded with sulfur containing phytonutrients which have been shown to protect against many kinds of cancer.
So don't just garnish with it! It does your body GREAT!
This is a copycat recipe from the Cheesecake Factory. It is a "Top Secret Restaurant Recipes" authored by Todd Wilbur. I haven't made this yet, but it sounds very good. I think this will be a very easy recipe to prepare. Don't be intimidated by the long list of ingredients. there are three simple sauces that are part of this recipe. If you try this before I do, please review it and let me know how it turned out. Prep time is a guesstimation.
These are uber kid-friendly. It's a great way to get extra vitamins (especially B-12 from the nutritional yeast) and protein (cashews, nutritional yeast) into tots. They taste like Doritos. Yum, yum, yum!
This was my first time ever making Kale Chips. I found this recipe online from pure2raw.com. They were so yummy! A great way to eat your greens-you could easily eat a whole head of kale in one sitting. :)

For those of you not familiar with kale chips – welcome to vegan nirvana. Raw foodists, vegans, health nuts, or those in “the green know” chow down happily on a handful of fresh kale chips as a green, nutritious alternative to conventional potato chips. They are not fried or baked; free from all of the carcinogens, additives and preservatives that plague most shriveled potato chip packets; they are dehydrated, which preserves all of their natural enzymes and nutrients; and most importantly, they are absolutely scrumptious. I promise you – these kale chips are to die for!
The secret to finishing this recipe off with that extra special touch? Tossing through the granulated garlic at the end. It just gives it a depth of flavour that is missing if you don’t finish it off this way. Don’t worry if you don’t have a dehydrator – you can slow cook kale chips in your oven on the very lowest setting for about 8-12 hours.
When I was growing up, veggies were boiled beyond recognition and then buttered into submission; and for a long while that is all I knew. Last year, DH a/k/a "Mr. Wonderful" and I started incorporating more Raw Food into our diets and were pleased with the renewed vitality and strength. Somewhere along in the research for this change in lifestyle, I saw a mention of Kale Chips and their health benefits (vitamins A, C and K; carotenoids that protect eyes from UV rays and cataracts and tons of fiber for happy, healthy innards.) Great! Now, if they're tasty, we've got a deal. I'm here to tell you, we have a great deal!! These tasty little darlings are addictive. DH thinks they are great "football" food!
This recipe comes from a Taste of Home Healthy Coking Magazine. I haven't made it. It looks like an interesting twist on Chex Mix. It seems like you could make this as spicy as you like just by using different curry powder.
This is a sweet and spicy Asian variation of Chex mix. There are times I have made this by the bucketful, and it still runs out at parties. I often give this out as Christmas or hostess gifts. <P>Be very careful. This party mix is HIGHLY addictive, very dangerous to keep around in big quantities and may result in some weight gain!<p>This recipe is a combination of a few recipes, one from foodgeeks.com and another from beanpaste.blogspot.com. It also has a few of my own personal touches. <p>
I received this recipe in my e-mail from a friend that belongs to another site also.
These are mildly smoked and not salty at all in spite of the amount of sodium in the recipe.
Very easy to make even easier to enjoy!
Servings are 1/4 cup.
Ok, so it's a contest between my husband and I to come up with the most ridiculous recipe name. I think I'm winning! There were a few already up my sleeve, so I kind of had a head start. These are panko-coated chicken tenders, VERY crispy and flavorful, served with a soy sauce-based dipping sauce. You can simplify the sauce component by mixing equal parts soy sauce and rice vinegar and using this in place of the listed dipping sauce.
