    • Holiday Healthy Peanut Butter Brownies

      Looking for a healthy CHOCOLATE treat this holiday season?  What if it was gluten-free, oil-free and vegan?  Check out this recipe my mother shared with me.  So good!  Can’t wait to make them again.  My kids approved!


      Brownie Batter-

      1/2 cup dates
      1/2 cup all natural peanut butter
      1/2 cup navy beans, mashed
      1/2 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (I used almond)
      1/4 cup sugar (I used sucanat, but any granulated sugar will work)
      1 tbsp vanilla extract
      1/2 cup cocoa powder
      1/4 tsp baking soda
      1/8 tsp sea salt

      Peanut Butter Swirl-

      1/4 cup all natural peanut butter
      1/4 cup navy beans, mashed
      2 tbsp unsweetened non-dairy milk (I used almond)



      Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
      Place dates in a 1/2 cup dry measuring cup and pour hot water over them until the measuring cup is full. Let sit for 5-10 minutes (depending on how hard dates are).  Add peanut butter, beans, non-dairy milk, sugar and vanilla to a food processor or blender,  and blend until combined. Add the soaked dates and the soaking water and blend again until smooth.

      In a medium bowl mix together cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.  Add the blended mixture and stir until combined.

      Line 8 x 8 baking pan with parchment paper.  Pour the mixture into baking pan and set aside.

      Prepare the peanut butter swirl my adding the peanut butter, beans and non-dairy milk to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.

      Using a spoon drop spoonfuls of peanut butter swirl batter randomly over the brownie batter.
      Insert a butter knife into the center of a peanut butter swirl blob (right down to the bottom of the pan) and pull the knife away from the blob in a swirl-like pattern. Repeat until all of the peanut butter swirl blobs have been cut/ swirled into the brownie batter.
      Bake for 45 minutes and let cool completely in the pan before cutting and serving.

      Hope you enjoy!

    • Here are 5 reasons to EAT MORE CABBAGE


      1.  CABBAGE is a CRUCIFEROUS vegetable!  This in of itself should cause you to want to EAT it more!  Cruciferous vegetables have anti-carcinogenic properties...meaning, it helps your body fight off cancer.


      2.  CABBAGE is great for losing weight!  Cabbage is one of the best sources of FIBER out there!  Adding more of this vegetable to your diet (raw or cooked) will fill you tummy without expanding your waistline.  It is a nutrient dense food, low in calories and high in essential nutrients.  The perfect combination when trying to lose weight.


      3.  CABBAGE can help keep your bones and body healthy.  Cabbage is a good source of vitamin C and vitamin K.  Vitamin C helps your body develop resistance against infectious agents and free radicals.  Enough Vitamin K in the diet makes your bones stronger and healthier.


      4.  CABBAGE is a good source of FOLATES.  Folic acid is one of the essential components of DNA.  For all your MOMS out there wanting enough of this essential nutrient for pregnancy...Cabbage is the perfect source for your body and your baby.



      Don't believe me?  Try any of these recipes and you will become a believer!
