Asian Chopped Salad

I just love salads of all kinds.  I eat them all year long.  My husband made this Asian Chopped Salad this weekend and it was a huge hit.  I can see it going in our regular rotation.   This recipe makes a lot, so it would be great for parties.  For the dressing, he slightly tweaked our Thai Peanut Sauce recipe and it came out great!  If you love salads too, you may also like this post.  I also have a post filled with salad dressing recipes that is worth checking out.

Flourless Chai Sandwich Cookies

I have been wanting to make something chai flavored for a long time.  I am so glad I decided to make these Flourless Chai Sandwich Cookies.   They are quick and easy to make.  I filmed a video for You Tube the other day about coconut cream.  So I decided to use the coconut cream in this cookie recipe to take it to the next level.  If you enjoy my other flourless cookie recipes, you will enjoy these!

Flourless Chai Sandwich Cookies - My Whole Food Life

These delicious cookies are vegan, gluten free and paleo.  If you want to make things extra easy, you can skip the filling and just make the cookies.  If you make the filling, you can either make cookie sandwiches like I did, or you can just frost the tops.  Your choice. I like my chai flavoring spicy, but if you don’t you can lessen the spices a little. :)
