Today please welcome Leanne from Healthful Pursuit!
Obviously, the goodies in the ebook are suitable for any time, not just Christmas.
Leanne’s blog is filled with information and advice about how to live well on a whole-foods diet. Her approach, while it incorporates animal foods as well as some vegan recipes, is similar to mine in that she prefers to use foods to obtain–and maintain–good health, rather than chemicals or anything artificial. Some of my favorites on Leanne’s blog include her Gingerbread Quinoa Breakfast Cookies, Rockin’ Roots Warmed Kale Salad, Vegan Cheez Whiz, and the popular Vegan and Gluten-Free “Twix” Bars.
Leanne has also written about her own journey to health and the kind of diet that has worked best for her. And, as you can see, she’s a whiz when it comes to creating delicious grain-free desserts. Learn more about her dessert cookbooks and other ebooks here, and get an inside peek at her upcoming ebook, Juices, Smoothies and Cleanses, here.
Today, Leanne shares a savory recipe. It’s simple, beautiful, and I bet it tastes delicious. Thanks so much, Leanne!
Thanks for the sweet introduction, Ricki
As a Holistic Nutritionist, I am often asked, “What’s the easiest thing I can do to improve my health?”
To which I always, always answer, “Juices, smoothies and cleansing!”
I have used the power of juicing, smoothies and cleansing to become the radiant woman I am today. I have a life I love, an eating style that works for me, and a body I now respect. I owe this magnificence to 10 years of whole foods livin’, nutrient-dense juices, fiber-packed smoothies and ultra-awesome cleanses.
Just last week, I announced that I was working on a new cookbook dedicated to juices, smoothies and cleansing. To amp up excitement and celebrate all things cleansing, I’ll be sharing many recipes on HealthfulPursuit.com that support a safe transition into and out of a juice cleanse program.
This slaw? Is one of those recipes. And you’re the first ones to see it!
Toasted Fennel & Carrot Slaw
Switch things up with this lemon vinaigrette-based coleslaw recipe. It’s fresh and cleansing, a perfect companion for your next family dinner.
1 medium fennel bulb, grated
4 carrots, grated
1 Tbsp (15 ml) chopped fresh cilantro
1 Tbsp (15 ml) chopped fresh mint
1 tsp (5 ml) fennel seeds, toasted
1/4 cup (60 ml) fresh lemon juice (about 1 large lemon)
3 Tbsp (45 ml) extra-virgin olive oil, preferably organic
1 garlic clove, minced
sea salt and pepper, to taste
To toast fennel seeds, add to a small frying pan and heat on low heat, rotating frequently until fragrant. Set aside to cool.
Add fennel, carrots, cilantro, mint and cooled fennel to a large bowl. Toss to combine, then set aside.
In a small blender, add dressing ingredients. Blend until smooth and oil is emulsified. Drizzle over the salad and serve. Makes 4-6 servings.
