Instead of a pumpkin pie, I made savory pumpkin bites this holiday season. It's a new recipe and by the third time making them I nailed the recipe, each time it just got better and better. Whole food ingredients mixed together to create an irresistible treat that will leave you smiling and wanting just one more! They are perfect for holiday parties and are a nice treat to have around in your kitchen.
Healthy Bonus: They are 100% PLANT-BASED - VEGAN - GLUTEN-FREE - ALMOST RAW & guilt free!

Happy Holidays! Thank you all SOOOO much for all of your support this year!!! I can't tell you how much I appreciate it!
The cold front this year has left it colder than normal, wouldn't you agree? Even for San Diego it's cold. However compared to other places it's hard to complain. We've been staying nice and toasty with homemade soup!
The other night I put on some music, started chopping and singing and before I knew it our place smelled incredible and Jerry was peaking over my shoulder to see if I was in need of a taste tester! I know it's coming along nicely when that happens. :)
In short order I was grilling up 2 grilled "Cheese" sandwiches and serving us seconds! "OMG that was delicious" Jerry reports and the next day he claimed it was "even better today than a it was yesterday!" It's a really simple soup, a great use of ingredients, healthy, low cal, and incredibly good for you! Whip up a batch and dig in if you are inclined!!!
Serve with a grilled "cheese" gluten free sandwich and/or make a small salad!
With the holidays here we're having super specials! Check them out as well as my cheesy Christmas designs!

We love to start our day with organic ingredients to get us fueled and energized for the day! This past Sunday we were blessed with beets, bananas, raw almonds, hemp powder, spirulina powder, a few apricots, a cup or so of frozen mixed berries, 2 c water (or non-dairy milk) and ice cubes mixed together to create a super shake!
That with a cup of joe and we were ready to see JJ. After much dancing and jumping around we worked up an appetite, quinoa came to the rescue! Jam packed with protein, iron, fiber, lysine, magnesium, B2, and a high content of manganese our bodies were soon smiling. JJ came back for seconds and Jerry did too! With all the love going around I had to share the recipe with you so you and your family may enjoy it too. The best part is the recipe is very simple and very good for you!
Take 1 cup of quinoa with 2 cups of filtered water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and stir occasionally until the water is absorbed. Once the water is absorbed stir in 2 tbl (+/-) gluten-free soy sauce, garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste. Add freshly chopped vegetables and mix well. Simply delicious!
Fresh cranberries make a sensational splash at the dinner table during the holiday season! Plus they're loaded with antioxidants to keep your body happy. Cranberries are high in vitamin C and low in calories! Did you know that only one cup of whole cranberries has 8,983 total antioxidant capacity!
The cranberry sauce turned out so good we even enjoyed it on our homemade Jerry Berry "ice cream"!
Fresh, sweet yet slightly tart, quick, easy and tasty!
