- 1 pound brussels sprouts, halved
- 1 medium gala apple, cut into a 1/2 inch dice
- 2 shallots, thinly sliced
- 3 T olive oil, divided into 2 T + 1 T
- 1 C onion, diced
- 1 C celery, diced
- 10 slices bread of choice: crusty sourdough, dry cornbread, whole grain, or, if you are gluten free, millet bread from Food For Life will work nicely. Prior to preparing the recipe, leave bread out for a day to become slightly dry, then cut into cubes.
- 1 1/2 C low sodium vegetable broth (plus extra as needed)
- 2 t fresh rosemary, chopped
- t fresh thyme
- t chopped fresh sage

- Heat oven to 400 degrees. Toss the squash, brussels sprouts, apples, + shallots in 2 T oil, season well with salt + pepper. Roast till vegetables are very tender (I actually like my sprouts a bit singed) and remove from oven. Reduce oven heat to 350.
- Heat other tbsp oil in a large pot. Sautee the onion + celery till translucent (about 5-8 min). Add the bread cubes and allow them to get golden brown with the veggies in the oil. Add a dash of salt and pepper.
- Add the roasted vegetables, vegetable broth, cranberries (or goji berries), pecans, + seasonings. Stir the mix till the broth has almost entirely absorbed in the toasted bread. Transfer to a baking sheet + bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. Serve hot.
Anyone else tired of having a salad for lunch and ending up STARVING two hours later? Same. Give us a salad that’s LOADED with delicious veggies, fruits, a rich protein-source and topped with a homemade Berry Bliss dressing to satisfy hunger and support your energy all day long!
In this salad, we used Dr. Prager’s California Veggie Burgers which includes 5g of protein and 10 different types of veggies. They’re so tasty and super satisfying. We also dressed it with a light and slightly sweet Berry Bliss dressing made from our Berry Bee Honey.
Enjoy this salad for lunch or as a side dish to your family dinner! Can’t wait to hear what you think.
1 large bunch kale (leaves torn from stems)
1 cup tomatoes
½ cup dried cranberries
½ cup pine nuts
½ cup shredded carrots
¼ red onion (thinly sliced)
FOR THE DRESSING
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
juice of 1 lemon
1 tbsp Berry Bee Honey
½ cup neutral oil (grapeseed, canola, etc)
salt and pepper to taste
In a nonstick skillet, cook Dr. Praeger’s California Burger on each side for 5-7 minutes until golden brown. Chop burger into small pieces.
Make the dressing by whisking together all the ingredients with a fork.
Put the shredded kale in a large bowl with the salt. With your hands, squeeze and massage the kale and mix it well with salt. Keep massaging the kale for up to 3-5 minutes as the kale will darken, shrink in size and the fibers will break down. Once this happens, mix in all of the other ingredients into the bowl.
Assemble salad by tossing all ingredients with dressing.

Do you know what dish you’re bringing to your next gathering whether it’s for Super Bowl Sunday, Shabbat Dinner or even a family get-together? A veggie tray or a Crudité Platter if you want to get fancy with it (yes, always!) is traditionally a mix of raw vegetables served with a dip for an appetizer.
We don’t do anything by the book here so we added a fun mix of dried fruits, cheese, crackers with our veggies and hummus. Appetizers like these really give you space to get creative with it and add the favorites that bring you so much joy to eat!
Tips for making your own fruit + veggie tray:
- Shop through your local farmers market to check out what fruits + veggies are in season and local.
- Bright and colorful means pretty and nutritious!
- With the many different types of veggie and fruits, try to aim for 2-3 dips (we used hummus, cheese AND a drizzle of Green Bee Honey
- You can leave all your veggies raw or cooked (we left ours raw)
How to assemble your tray:
- Start with your tray and put your spreads/dips on first
- Add your bigger, bulky items
- Add in pops of color with your fruit + veggies
- Finish with remaining fruit/veggies + herbs or final touches (i.e. edible flowers and a drizzle of honey)
This colorful appetizer platter is loaded with fun winter fruits + veggies, perfect for your next get-together. We also added our fav, Hope Hummus which tastes so freakin’ good and instantly boosts the quality of any fruit + veggie spread. We paired everything with a drizzle of Green Bee Honey adding some detoxifying + healing properties into the mix. A beautiful platter like this one is such a great way to entertain and appeal to lots of different taste buds at any family/friend gathering.
Hope Hummus or any hummus dip you'd like!

Is there anything better than a warm, grounding latte on a cool, winter day, especially during your morning grounding ritual or during the afternoon slump when you need a bit of a boost. This cinnamon date latte made with Cacao Magic Superfood + Protein Blend is the after caffeine boost your body will thank you for!!
Coffee can get a bad rep, but it’s really only harmful to you if consumed excessively like anything else in life. If you’re stressed, you should REALLY watch your caffeine intake because of cortisol, AKA the stress hormone is released after drinking coffee. It also stimulates the adrenal glands. Every time you drink it, you're activating the body's fight-or-flight response. Instead of releasing adrenaline so the body can react to a true stressor, the adrenals are releasing this hormone in response to your coffee consumption. Eventually, this can lead to adrenal fatigue.
This version is all-around better for you than a traditional latte you’d buy at your local coffee shop and - in our opinion - tastes better too! The only sweetener used is from Medjool dates, a bit of cinnamon (or our Fall Vibes Superfood Blend for warming spices) and vanilla extract. Not only that, but the scoop of Cacao Magic adds protein, magnesium, and mushroom magic from the reishi.
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tbsp almond or nut butter (we used pecan butter)
1 large Medjool Date (pitted and roughly chopped)
½ tsp ground cinnamon or 1 tsp Fall Vibes Superfood Blend
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
½ - ½ cup of coffee
Brew your favorite coffee blend and set aside. In a saucepan, bring all the ingredients (except the coffee) to a low boil. Remove from heat and place in a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. Taste test and adjust flavors as needed. Pour anywhere from ¼ - ½ cup of coffee in your favorite mug and top with the milk blend. ENJOY!
