This recipe can be enjoyed any time of day, for breakfast, as a snack or even a dessert. The apples, oatmeal help to feed the gut microbiota while the kefir builds it. It also has loads of good fat and protein to keep you satiated and your blood sugar stable. The sweeteners are filled with health promoting properties - so this is a great choice if you're like me and have a 'sweet tooth'...
Who would have thought that this ol' standby dip recipe could be healthy?!?!
The secret to making this an energy boosting / 'feel good' dish is in the quality of the ingredients, here's a few examples: - Grass-fed, organic and full fat dairy contains exponentially more CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) than non-grass fed, which helps with the breakdown of adipose lipids (belly fat). - Artichokes help with bile production which emulsifies (breaks down) fat, making it easier to digest. - Then there's the antioxidant benefits of garlic and spinach and VOILA nutritious and soooo delicious!
NOTE: This wonderfully nutritious dip is very high in calories, so if weight gain is a concern... - try and stick to a 1 ounce (2 tablespoon) serving...
Chicken liver is one of the healthiest foods on the planet. Great source of iron and certain B Vitamins including Vitamin B12. Making it a great choice for boosting energy.

Bone broth can be frozen and used later instead of water to make grains, soups and stews. Keeps in the freezer for up to 6 months.
I like to cook the broth all day for one day then place in a cool spot (garage/bucket of ice/refrigerator) over night then cook it for another day.
Bring these along to a BBQ and wow your friends and family with this healthy and delicious take on an ol' favourite!

Yup! French Fries can be healthy if made with good oil, organic potatoes and good quality sea salt. Make extra and flash freeze them for another day...
Flash Freeze: When the fries are almost cooked completely. Freeze them by spreading them out on a baking sheet or tray, then packing them in airtight containers or freezer bags or wrapping with foil or plastic wrap for longer storage. Cook from frozen in a 400 F oven for 15 minutes or so, turning once half way through cooking.
