Cabbage Slaw

 
We spend most of our weekends in the summer at our trailer located in beautiful Sauble Beach where I
grew up. That means we get a lot of company, which we love. I don’t want to spend all weekend
cooking, as I would rather spend that time kayaking and biking and enjoying the beach. I always
make some salads up so we can eat away at them all weekend. This is one of my favourites. It is so
easy to make and is loaded with fibre and antioxidants. It keeps well for a few days in the fridge. -Dee
 
 
 
Cabbage Slaw:
1 head of purple cabbage shredded
1 bag of shredded broccoli or carrot slaw (or both)
1-2 apples washed and cut into bite size pieces
2 ounces of hemp seeds (can be added when serving if you prefer)
¼ - ½ cup of dried cranberries, raisins or goji berries
Dressing:
¼-½ cup of grape seed oil
¼-½ cup of vinegar (Balsamic, apple cider or red wine all work well)
2 tbsp raw honey
1 tbsp minced ginger
1 tbsp minced garlic
Drizzle over the salad and let the flavours meld together.
Amount of oil and vinegar will change with the quantities of vegetables you use.

Hempseed & Chia Chocolate Chip Cookies

Just last week my daughter had some friends over to celebrate her birthday.  As we were enjoying dinner, all of her friends were telling me their favourite foods that I make and what I can make for them the next time they visit.  This chocolate chip cookie is Emma's favourite, and got a resounding yes from the rest of the crowd.
 
I wanted to  attempt  a new oatmeal chocolate chip recipe and incorporate two nutrient dense foods I love, chia and hemp seeds.
Talk about a powerhouse cookie! Some might even say, GOOD FOR YOU! Good luck trying to keep them out of these cookies.
