Avocado, lettuce, tomato and Onion Bread Sandwich!!

This is a doubled recipe and I used sweet red onions instead of yellow/white
makes two trays of bread

Mix together in large bowl until seeds gel~
2c. ground golden flax seeds
2 c. water
2 t. salt

5 carrots chopped up in Vita Mix or shredded
4 large red onions sliced in Food processor or other sweet onions
3 T. EV olive oil or grapeseed oil

Mix together until completely amalgamated and spread on teflex sheets and place in dehydrator at 105 degrees
dry on one side, flip and dry until desired texture and cut up with kitchen scissors
my bread is moist but firm and delicious...and sometimes I will make it extra crispy!

This is what I am doing with my bag of mixed greens this week!

*To change up the flavor.... leave out peas add sliced strawberries to the salad and make a 
Strawberry Vinaigrette 
for the dressing by using fresh berries, rice vinegar and stevia or sweetener of choice...and blend !

Chocolate and Cheesecake Strawberry Parfait

We received strawberries in our CSA share this week!!

So.... I had to make one of my favorite healthy desserts.

Chocolate...Cheesecake....and Strawberries.....Delicious!!!

Chocolate and  Cheesecake  Strawberry Parfait

Chocolate Mousse

In the food processor:

8 soft dates ~pit removed**
1/2 - 3/4 c. water*
1-2 t. vanilla

2 avocado's  ~peel and remove pit
 1/2 c. raw cacao (cocoa or carob)
dash of salt

*you may need more water to help process
**depending on the size of the dates you may desire more sweetness.  I usually add a few drops of liquid stevia to achieve desired sweetness.

 I usually blend my dates and liquids first until smooth and then add the other ingredients
drizzle water into food processor as you blend  
Blend until smooth & creamy 
place in fridge to set


1 c. soaked cashews
1-2 T. extra virgin coconut oil
2-4 T. lemon juice
1 t. vanilla
dash of salt 
begin with 1/3- 1/2 c. of water to blend to creamy consistency
you may need to add more water, but be careful not to add too much...but if you can use the recipe as a sauce for berries!

this cream will be slightly running 
place in the fridge to set
*I blend the cheesecake in the food processor first and then transfer to the Vita Mix to bring it to a super smooth consistency

After both of the puddings are set..layer in pretty glass dish and top with strawberries.
You can make one or both of the recipes above for individual desserts or dips for fruit.
