One of our favorite foodies has created a weekly blog carnival entitled Fight Back Fridays. This carnival is designed to allow people focused on real food, sustainable living and natural healing to share their posts on the Food Renegade website. For the August 17th addition of Fight Back Friday, we have created a list of our recent real food recipes. Check out these recipes and be sure to join the conversation!
Green plants and vegetables are packed with vitamins, minerals, and vegetarian protein that is absolutely vital to the health of the human body. For that reason, we need to include plenty of greens in our diet. Making easy green snacks and green smoothies is a great way to get the nutrients your body needs. Try making The Greenest Smoothie for breakfast and these Coconut Oil Kale Chips for an afternoon snack!
I personally believe that eating dessert is just as important as eating green vegetables… especially when that dessert is packed with antioxidants and essential fatty acids! Raw Cacao provides powerful antioxidants and Coconut Oil provides important long chain fatty acids. These Chocolate Coconut Truffles and Raw Vegan Chocolate Bars combine both of these super-foods for two desserts packed with nutrients and flavor.
