Stuffed Acorn Squash
You wont believe how good this is until you try it! A combination of onion, mushrooms, garlic, kale, lentils, black rice, pine nuts and  holiday herb seasoning stuffed in an acorn squash. The sweetness of the squash combined with the savory flavors of the stuffing is a tasty combination. My husband gives it 4 stars and says adding more pine nuts would take it to 5!

Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes w/ Spinach
These are potatoes at their best! A creamy and delicious combination of cauliflower, yukon gold potatoes, garlic, and cashews with just a touch of chopped spinach to add a little color and even more nutrients. My grand kids love these and you will too!

Raw Apple Pie
A couple of weeks ago when my grand kids spent the night, I made this pie for breakfast.They loved telling their mom that Grandma made them apple pie for breakfast! This pie is a combination of organic apples, dates, nuts and oats. That's it!  No processed sugars, flours, or extracted oils. 100% wholesome and delicious!

And there you have it! Health for Life cooking for the holidays.
Class date is Wednesday November 7 at 6:00 pm. I will be demonstrating the mashed potatoes with a chicken style gravy (has no chicken) and dairy free pumpkin pie at my Kitchen Corner class on Wednesday November 14. Hope to see you at class!

Health for Life Cooking in October

Winter Squash and Red Lentil Stew
A very creamy soup filled with winter squash and red lentils with just a touch of chopped kale. It has a slightly sweet and mild taste of curry. It's warm, satisfying and delicious! If desired, top it off with a touch of cashew cream.

Cruciferous Rice
Rice dishes that contain a few chopped vegetables are great but a dish rich in cruciferous vegetables with a little rice is even better!
This is a delicious combination of onion, mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, green peas, brown rice, spices and garnished with chopped cashews.

Fruity Fall Cabbage Salad
This was a favorite salad on the river trips that I took years ago. I loved the combination of cabbage and fruit dressed in vanilla yogurt. My version is made with red and green cabbage, grated carrot, apples, pears and raisins covered in a much healthier non-dairy dressing with just a touch of nutmeg and cinnamon. I could eat this for breakfast!

Scrumptious Pecan Cookies
If I have these cookies around when my 6 year old grandson is visiting, I can't keep him out of them. And to be honest, I can hardly keep myself out of them! They are so simple to make with only 4 ingredients! No processed sugars, extracted oils or flours are used. Contain pecans.

And there you have it! Health for Life Cooking in October. Only 1 Health for Life class will be offered this month on Tuesday October 16. I will be demonstrating the soup, cabbage salad, and cookies at my Kitchen Corner class on Thursday October 11. Hope to see you in class!
