Congratulations to our 10 WINNERS! This giveaway is now closed.
We’re excited to welcome back our old friends from Prescribe Nutrition! We did an awesome giveaway with them last year for their online Nutrition Programs and we love hearing that so many of you are still doing their programs. Really cool! Today, they’re here sharing a recipe from their new Holiday eCookbook which takes favorite Holiday dishes and switches out ingredients with healthier options. (They’re offering readers $5 off, keep reading for the code!) Take it away, Anna:
“A wise mother once told me that we aren’t raising children, we are raising adults. I couldn’t quite comprehend this with a newborn in my arms, but now that my kiddos are three and four, it’s starting to make a lot more sense. This makes the most sense for me in the kitchen.
Bringing them into the kitchen with me has truly transformed the way they eat. Learning about the food they’re preparing by asking questions regarding where it comes from and how it grows has created a connection and appreciation for food they used to scowl at. Yes, their help probably adds about ten minutes to the cooking window, but if in the end it means I am just making one meal that everyone will eat, it’s worth it in my book.
The holidays in particular are such a fun time to party it up in the kitchen together. Crank up some holiday tunes, whip up some festive treats and enjoy eating your creations together. When we dreamed up what our Prescribe Nutrition Holiday eCookbook would look like, we knew we had to upgraded the traditional foods we love by replacing the the crash-inducing ingredients with wholesome, nourishing ingredients that our bodies could use more of. And of course we had to add in some amazing new recipes to knock your socks off – the cauliflower shooters will do just that! There’s even a list of cookies for the cookie exchange! We’ve got it all, and it is even toddler approved.
Here’s one of our favorites, Superfood Chocolate Holiday Bark: Makes one 9 x 12 sheet
1 pound dark chocolate chips, dairy-free chips (such as Enjoy Life) or non-dairy white chocolate chips (such as Kind David)
2 teaspoons coconut oil, + extra for greasing
½ cup dried goji berries or unsweetened cranberries
½ cup shelled pistachios
¼ cup toasted large flake unsweetened coconut
✔ Coat a 9 x 12 rimmed baking sheet or 6 small loaf pans (2 x 5) with coconut oil cooking spray (or manually with paper towel and coconut oil) then line with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on long sides.
✔ In a saucepan, melt chocolate with 2 teaspoons coconut oil over low heat until it is completely melted, mixing frequently (or you can do this in the microwave in 30 second increments).
✔ Pour melted chocolate into baking sheet or divide among pans and spread in an even layer with the back of a spoon.
✔ Sprinkle toppings over chocolate and very gently press toppings into chocolate (so they don’t pop off). Refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour – you can also place in freezer. Remove and break or slice into small pieces and share!”
