Lentil Bruschetta Dip 

Snack / Appetizer This Bruschetta like snack is quick, easy and so yummy. I like to use a sprouted lentil trio by tru Roots. You can find them at  One cup cooks quickly – under 7 minutes and makes a lot so I sometimes cut the recipe in half and make a curry soup with yams with the remainder.

Ingredients: 1 cup dried sprouted lentils

2 medium tomatoes, diced

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

4 to 6 cloves of garlic, minced

2 tablespoons chopped basil Fresh ground pepper to taste


1.    Cook lentils according to package directions.

2.    While lentils are cooking, dice tomatoes and add the remaining ingredients. Mix well.

3.    Drain cooked lentils and stir into the tomato mixture. Chill or serve warm with multi-seed crackers, pita, or tortilla chips for dipping. If you are cleansing, skip the chips and crackers and use carrot chips instead.

Total Cooking Time: approximately 15 minutes Nutritional notes: excellent source of protein (18g per cup) and high in folate, manganese and selenium.

Pumpkin Chia Seed Pudding

Breakfast / Treat / Snack Who knew that Chia seeds would move from a cute plant/animal to a nutritional super hero! I love their texture so much I even add it to my smoothies. Here is a recipe I found and adapted to my taste. You can play with the amount of Chia seed and milk to get the consistency that’s just right for you. It’s super easy to make as well.


¼ cup Chia seed

1 scoop protein powder

1.5 cups almond milk

1 cup pumpkin puree

1.5 teaspoons of pumpkin spice 2 tablespoons grade B Maple syrup 

Directions: ingredients into a blender and process until well mixed. Pour into a covered bowl and refrigerate overnight. Makes about 4 servings. I like to stir in a teaspoon of ground flax seed for a little extra nutritional kick right before eating. Total time to prepare: approximately 10 minutes Nutritional notes: High in fiber, omega 3 fats, protein, calcium, potassium and magnesium. them up and eat!
