Almond pulp. If you make your own almond milk, you’ve undoubtedly had the dilemma of, “what do I do with all this leftover pulp?”

Well, say hello to my Raw Goji and Cacao Bars. They are the perfect solution. They are also a delicious energy boost. Especially if you can eat them. I can’t, so I had smoked oysters instead. Not quite the same thing… but nutrient dense nonetheless.

Dressed up all pretty for sale!

Don’t worry if you have no almond pulp, just grind up some raw almonds in your food processor or vitamix.

Raw Goji and Cacao Bars

1 1/4 c. almond pulp (dehydrated)
12 medjool dates, blended into a paste (use less if the almond pulp is moist)
3 Tbsp. goji berries
2 Tbsp. cacao nibs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. sea salt

  1. Just mix all ingredients in a bowl or pulse gently in a food processor (you don’t want to grind down the berries or nibs).
  2. Press into a pan and chill.
  3. Cut into bars! Makes about 8 good-sized bars.

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌶 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad 🥑🍋🌶🥒
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. ☀️🥗☀️🥗☀️ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
