This is a great way to swap the butter on your toast for avocado, which is a healthy fat and take will take your toast to another level. This mouthwatering recipe can be eaten for breakfast, lunch of afternoon snack. Adding kale will make it even more nutritious and will add texture to the spread.

I really like potatoes but I have learned that there's little nutrient content in them. However, I discovered that purple potato is loaded with antioxidants and high in potassium. In this recipe the purple potato stands out giving a pop of color to a typically bland-looking dish, making this a healthy side or a simple snack!
Here you have it! One of my favorite summer meals. This recipe can be and appetizer served with tortilla chips or a main dish served with romaine lettuce. All the enzymes of the raw fruit and vegetables will keep your skin glowing and nourishing your body!

Everyone loves tacos, specially children. Here we have a variation of the traditional taco style where instead of beef we are using mushrooms, walnuts and spices to make the taco meat, perfect for meat-less Mondays. This combination of mushroom and walnut makes it so tasty and crunchy that I promise you wont miss the "beef". If you want to take it a bit further, use Romaine lettuce whole leafs to replace the tacos shells. Much healthier, low in calories and low in fat!
This recipe is always a hit in our kids cooking classes. Our students not only learn the importance of sanitation when working whit raw meats but they have a blast threading them into the skewers. They're packed with flavor and satisfies even the pickiest eaters. We have served them with our homemade Naan Bread and Israeli Salad or by themselves as an appetizer. I can say that this recipe is definitely a keeper!
This mix of greens and superfoods can become part of a wrap a side or a meal on its own. You can top it with baked pieces of tofu, fish or chicken breast. Make it for dinner, take it to the office or a picnic and you will be replenishing your body with REAL foods that will give you nutrients and energy. Note: We like to keep the tomatoes, cucumber and feta on the side until the time of service so our greens stay crunchy.
