Beautiful Recipes

Here are some easy recipes to nourish your body and your spirit! I will change these regularly in order to keep you trying yummy and simple, interesting, clean, whole food and beautiful recipes. I have grown to truly appreciate simplicity in the kitchen, as those days of planning, coordinating and over-thinking (and over-working) are ancient history. I want to impart simplicity to all of the women in my life. Countless hours don't equal yummier. Enjoy!

Let's start with few scrumptious, simple, gluten free, extremely low carb,  healthy desserts......

Cacao and Pistachio Chocolate Bark

Ingredients:

1-8 ounce bar of dark chocolate (80% or higher cacao content is best)
2 Tbsp Cacao nibs
1/4 cup ground pistachios (feel free to substitute almonds, cashews or other nuts)
1 Tsp of your favorite spice or herbs such as cayenne, cinnamon, himalayan or sea salt, and lavender are all great!

To Make:

Melt chocolate slowly on low heat.
Prepare cooking sheet with natural waxed paper. When chocolate is melted, use spoon to pour entire contents on cookie sheet. Sprinkle with cacao nibs and pistachio and spice. 
Alternatively, use other toppings like coconut, pomegranate seeds, or slithered almonds. 
Put in refrigerator for several hours until hardened. Break into chunks and enjoy a small piece to end a meal and remind yourself that it's time to finish eating!

*****Special note: Cacao is considered a Superfood, it is also considered the 'food of the gods'. All of the health-giving qualities of chocolate are found in original cacao. It is filled with magnesium, iron, chromium, manganese, zinc, copper, vitamin c, omega-6 fatty acids, fiber and has many, many other health-giving properties! 

Chocolate Mousse (shhhh, it is made from avacados and not a single person would ever know!)

Ingredients:

1 avacado
1 cup almond milk
2/3 cups dates, pitted and soaked
1/2 cup carob powder
1/4 cup almond butter

To Make:

In a food processor or blender, combine all ingredients and blend until creamy.

******Special note:  I like to put this mixture in fancy glasses and put in the refrig. for a couple of hours to make it nice and cool before serving. In addition, I have also added orange zest, cinnamon and vanilla to the mixture and shredded coconut on top.  They are all delicious!  But you experiment with some tasty treats you love....cranberries without added sugar perhaps for a little tartness?  Feel free to double or triple the recipe. This will be a huge hit and it's super easy.
