Raw Carrot Cake Truffles recipe!
-2 large carrots
-1-1/4 cups dried shredded coconut, divided
-3/4 cup pecans or walnuts
-1 inch piece of fresh ginger, washed, peeled and roughly chopped
-1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
-1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
-A pinch of salt
-1/2 packed cup pitted dates
-2 Tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil
-1/2 cup raisins
-1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used @ancientnutr)
Makes about 20 medium size balls
Finely grate the carrots with the grater blade of a food processor or on a box cheese grater. Transfer the carrots to a bowl and fit the processor with the metal “S” blade. Add the 3/4 cup of the coconut, nuts, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and pulse until well broken down. Add the dates and coconut oil and pulse until well blended.
Add the raisins and carrots pulse a few more times until it comes together into a sticky mass. Slowly add in vanilla protein powder. You will be rolling these into little balls so if the mix feels too moist you can add a touch more coconut and pulse again.
Roll the dough into balls between your palms (about 1 Tablespoon of dough each) and then roll in the remaining coconut or pecan pieces. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, can be served cold or at room temperature! ------------------------------------

I just love the smell of bread baking in the oven. Add fresh herbs and garlic?? And it becomes heavenly! This bread recipe is 100% whole wheat and has very minimal oil. If you think bread is difficult and time consuming, all you need is 2 hours of rise time for this and it is totally worth it! .
ITALIAN WHOLE WHEAT HERB BREAD
INGREDIENTS: - 1 1/3 cups warm/hot water (how hot your sink gets)
- 1 package dry yeast
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 3 cups whole wheat flour
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1. Combine hot water, yeast, and sugar in the bowl of a mixer with a dough hook attachment. Let it proof for 10 minutes until frothy.
2. Add remaining ingredients and start mixing on a medium speed until smooth. You can also knead by hand. It should take around 5 minutes or so. Once smooth, dump onto your floured work surface and knead by hand until smooth and not sticky.
3. Let rise in a covered and greased bowl for one hour until doubled in a cupboard or warm place.
4. After an hour, dump onto your work surface and shape into an oval shape or put into a loaf pan and let it rise for another 45 minutes until puffy.
5. Preheat your oven to 425°F.
6. Bake in the oven for 9 minutes at 425°F and then lower the temperature to 375°F and bake for another 21 minutes, and until hollow sounding when hit.
7. ENJOY! .

1st day back after like 3 weeks or so off! I didn't go crazy hard, but I went. I'm thrilled 🤗🤗 that I completed the 3 workouts.😎 The hardest part of the entire workout....ABS! OOOOYYYYY!! 🤤🤤 No regrets what so ever. I'm not a beginner by any means which is why I chose to go for an hour. I wouldn't suggest it for someone just getting started. I like to avoid injury at all costs! So, I didn't over exhort myself and I drank water throughout. I feel amazing! Alhamdulillah.

"Zoodles" or zucchini noodles, are a fresh and lower carbohydrate alternative to pasta noodles. This savory recipe pairs them with a creamy, dairy-free avocado Alfredo sauce and shrimp for a healthy meal for all ages.
- 4 Tbsp olive oil (extra virgin preferred, divided use)
- 15-20 peeled, raw, medium shrimp (rinsed, patted dry)
- 2 to 3 medium to large unpeeled zucchini, ends trimmed
- 1 medium avocado (peeled, pitted, cut)
- 1/4 cup fresh basil
- 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 2 medium garlic cloves
1. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat, swirling to coat the bottom. Cook the shrimp for about 4 minutes, or until pink on the outside, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat. Transfer the shrimp to a large bowl. Cover to keep warm. Wipe the skillet with paper towels.
2. Put the zucchini on a cutting board. Using a spiralizer, julienne peeler, or mandoline, make zoodles from the zucchini.
3. In the same skillet, still over medium heat, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, swirling to coat the bottom. Put the zoodles in the skillet.
4. In a food processor, process the avocado, basil, lemon juice, and garlic until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
5. Stir the sauce into the zoodles. Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes, or until the zoodles are tender and the sauce is heated through, stirring occasionally. Stir in the shrimp. Cook for 1 minute.

Salads should be fun! Just look at this beauty!
Your daily nutrition goals should include one LARGE salad. The biggest mistake I see people make with salads is not putting enough sustenance in them! And I'm not talking about animal protein. This gorgeous salad has edamame, green pepper, blueberries, pecans, tomatoes and a delicious oil-free dressing made from avocado, soy milk, lime juice, and almonds! Talk about healthy fats, protein, and antioxidants! And it was easy to throw together.
