There are a few things that make this recipe great.  They are vegan, gluten free and paleo approved.  The contain ZERO refined sugar, and there is no baking required!  Only 5 simple ingredients!

I have such a sweet tooth, so I am always thinking of new ways to enjoy sweets in a better way.  Since these contain a good amount of fat, and they are super rich, you don’t need much to satisfy.  I made mine in standard sized muffin pans and got 6, but you can do a bite size up if you like too!

Small Steps Toward Health

January is the time when we all decide to make healthy changes. I know I did some indulging around the holidays!  Sometimes the thought of a complete lifestyle overhaul can be intimidating.  I like to set small goals at first. Those small goals can add up to be big positive changes!  There are many little things you can do to take steps toward health.  For example:

  • Take small walks around your neighborhood.
  • Climb stairs at home
  • Start to read labels
  • Up your intake of fruits and vegetables

Did you know that January 26th is National Green Juice Day?  Evolution Fresh makes it easy to get my daily fruits and vegetables.

Asian Chopped Salad (Vegan, Gluten Free)

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 are avoiding soy, you can use green peas instead of the edamame.  I also think toasting the cashews would give them an extra punch of flavor.  This salad is vegan and gluten free.
