This Grain Free Fig & Vanilla Granola fills the house with the most heavenly scent! I could make it everyday, just for that smell.  It is super easy to make, only takes about 10 minutes of hands on time and it is full of fabulous nutrition and taste.

I have many parents coming into the community who's kids are new to the whole foods world.  That is why many of the recipes I create err on the sweeter side. Making these homemade-whole food and gut healthy versions of processed foods a little on the sweeter side at first tends to make for an easier transition.  Once your taste buds are adjusted you can begin cutting back on the sweetener.  This recipe calls for 1/3 cup of honey.  You could use half of that amount and still get a great result.

 
Even with the full complement of honey and dried fruit, this granola packs a good nutrient punch and less sugar than the packaged variety. Full of fiber, protein and gut healthy fat it keeps blood sugar balanced and energy purring along.  It also comes with a full compliment of of micro-nutrients like potassium, magnesium, zinc and vitamins A and K just to name a few!  A big upgrade to that box of Quaker Oats Granola that might have had a spot on your shelf before today!
 
I hope you will give this grain free Fig & Vanilla Granola a try, maybe even this weekend, and I'd love to hear your what you think.

Very Veggie Dip

Episode 2 of our weekly live School Snack Video Series is this fabulous Veggie Dip. 

Most kids love dip.  With one notable exception….my own.  He has never been a big fan of anything dip, except homemade ketchup for burgers and hot dogs.  In his mind these are the only foods for dipping!  However, I do know that most of my friends kids love a good dip and it is a great opportunity to get more nutrients into them without them ever suspecting a thing! Here is a veggie dip made with more veggies!

This dip recipe works great with crunchy vegetables or crackers for dipping. It also makes a great spread or topping.  I found I really enjoyed in on top of fish and pork especially.  It is packed full of great nutrition with cauliflower and red peppers as the base.  Add a splash of fermented veggie juice and you’ve got some good probiotics in your veggie dip too!

The recipe is of course gut healthy, gluten free, dairy free, grain free and is GAPS compliant, Paleo and Whole 30 compliant.

Check out the very veggie dip demo video below.
