We are in full holiday baking season now.  So it’s the perfect time for me to share these Coconut Vanilla Meltaway Cookies.  They are divine and simply melt in your mouth.  One of the best things about this recipe is that it only calls for 4 simple ingredients!

I used REBBL Vanilla Spice Protein Coconut Milk  for this recipe. I love that the protein is sourced from peas, pumpkin and sunflower seeds.  Most protein drinks contain processed ingredients.  Not only are REBBL drinks delicious, but they contain none of the bad stuff.  That’s right, REBBL drinks are organic, fair trade, made from real ingredients and full of super herbs like ashwagandha, reishi and maca root.

Avocados with Mango Salsa - My Whole Food Life

 

This recipe fits all diets.  It’s gluten free, vegan and even paleo.  If you wanted to add some extra protein, I think black beans would go well in here also.

Or even quinoa.  I thought they were just perfect this way. I am a wimp with spicy food, but if you like things spicy, you can also add jalapenos.  My husband would love that!

Blueberry Bliss Bars (Vegan, Gluten Free, Paleo)

I don’t know if you noticed, but I love recipes that use only a few ingredients.  These Blueberry Bliss Bars are just that.  All you need is 4 simple ingredients to make these blueberry bliss bars!

This no bake recipe is perfect for summer.  I know I don’t want to spend time in my kitchen with the oven on.  It’s hot down here in Dallas!

 

Blueberry Bliss Bars - My Whole Food Life

 

These yummy bliss bars are vegan, gluten free and paleo.  This was my first time using creamed coconut and I have to say that it was pretty much exactly like coconut butter.  The only difference I noticed, was that creamed coconut seemed to soften faster out of the fridge.

Another great thing you could do with these no bake bars is drizzle a little of my 3 ingredient chocolate over the top.  Yum!  If you do that, then you will need to keep the bars in the freezer.

Thai Noodle Salad

Love this Thai noodle salad!  I needed to use up a few things in my fridge, so to do that I made this Thai noodle salad.  It’s super yummy, raw and very nutritious!  Vegetables are most nutritious in their raw state. I used my spiralizer to make this Thai noodle salad.  I just love that thing!   This healthy salad is also grain free.  I used zucchini for the “noodles.”  If you like this, you may also like my zucchini pasta with avocado pesto.

I used my Thai Peanut Sauce for the dressing.  I was out of peanut butter, so I used almond butter and it worked out great.  I highly recommend keeping the vegetables and the dressing separate until you are ready to eat the salad.  Spiralized vegetables can release moisture making the dressing too thin and soupy.

Chard Wraps with Apple Slaw

The other day my husband bought a bag of apples because they were on sale.  It was perfect because I have been wanting to do an apple slaw.  I normally make a crock pot applesauce.  What better way to enjoy the apple slaw than a in a chard wrap?  These lettuce wraps with apple slaw are the perfect healthy dish to kick off the new year with.  The tahini dressing really makes this apple slaw stand out.  In fact, I use it as a dressing for salads as well.  I love lettuce wraps because they fit into every diet.  Gluten free, grain free, vegan and raw.
