desired. May also kick it up a bit with extra chili powder or chipotle
seasoning. Serve on whole grain tortilla with a little melted cheese if
desired or on a toasted corn tortilla or lettuce greens. Add salsa and

Ice them with the following:
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1/2 tsp orange zest
couple tsp. honey as desired
then put in the fridge to let cool enough to thicken. Whisk now and
then. It doesn't take long. If you want it sweeter, add more honey. This
is really an amazing icing!
Blend eggs in blender, drizzle honey and oil while blender
is running. Add milk, salt and flour,
blend well. Heat a small pan on medium heat.

I believe the body needs healthy food: every meal, every day.
I believe healthy food can be delicious: 100% of the time.
You don't have to sacrifice taste for health: period!
Some of these recipes are my family's tried-and-true favorites; others are on our list of new recipes to try.
You'll find that the recipes contain:
*No dairy--except for occasional butter and eggs. See Substitutes under the Label section on the sidebar for substitute suggestions.
*No refined foods (white flour, white rice, white pasta, etc.)
*No table salt (We limit our salt intake, but when we do use salt we always use Celtic or Himalayan Salt for its mineral content.)
*No refined sugars (We limit our sweets, but occasionally use natural sweeteners such as maple syrup, maple sugar, date sugar, dates, honey, etc.)
*No red meat or poultry (we occasionally use organic chicken broth); just a little seafood. I feel poultry is definitely better than red meat, but I am not comfortable with the quality of the poultry these days...so we avoid both. Due to high metal levels, seafood should only be eaten on occasion. Learn where your seafood comes from, what additives, preservatives, and colorings are added, and which fish contains the most mercury etc. before feeding it to your family. Just my two cents.)
*We buy Organic whenever possible.
*We eat food in its raw state as much as possible. Juicing/blending is a favorite way to do this. We have fresh juice at least once a day!
*We avoid soy products. (Soy lecithin is in so many things that it's nearly impossible to avoid it entirely.) Improperly fermented soy (which includes all soy products except miso and tempeh) causes fertility problems and a host of other MAJOR problems that I encourage you to become familiar with. Do your family a favor and do not feed them soy!
*We don't use processed oils. Instead we use olive oil, coconut oil, sesame oil. We do not use Canola oil! We like eating avocados, nuts, and seeds for their natural oil content. We always soak our nuts, seeds, and grains to make them more easily digestible.

It took me years to replace the unhealthy recipes in my recipe box with healthy ones. It was a time-consuming and frustrating experience. I hope the recipes on my blog will make the process easier for you!

"God knows what course to pursue to restore mankind to their pristine excellency and primitive vigor, and health; and He has appointed the Word of Wisdom as one of the engines to bring about this thing..." -Hyrum Smith, Times and Seasons, 3:799-801
"Health is more important than taste, and when it is known that certain foods carry health insurance, one ought to have the gumption to learn to like them.
.....The taste of any new food may be unpalatable at first; but repeated nibbles cause one gradually to acquire a taste for it. Many children, if given cod liver oil from infancy, actually enjoy its taste. This is true of any food. It is really infantile not to be master of one's taste as regards that which insures health." ~Leah D. Widsoe
