Oh Kale Yeah! My Spicy Almond Butter Kale Salad is on fire and not because of the chili garlic sauce, but because of the amazing benefits! A single cup of raw kale contains so many health boosters. Kale is filled with Vitamin A, Vitamin K, Vitamin C, and is titled one of the healthiest foods in the world….
I found this Cashew Zoodles recipe in the Whole30 cook book and then modified it to make it my own. If you’re not into zoodles, I still recommend making this sauce because it’s amazing. I may or may not have been eating it by the spoonful… I loved it so much that I made it again the next day and used it as salad dressing over my spinach and kale salad. Even Erik loved it, so that’s a plus. Did I mention its Whole30 and Paleo approved with no added sugar?
Did you know the Christmas cookie tradition all started in the early 1900s when cookies were baked in different shapes and used for window decorations? My windows would have been filled with half eaten cookies; gingerbreads with no arms and stars with only 4 points! Ha.
The Christmas cookie tradition I grew up knowing is a bit different. My sister and I would stand in my aunt’s kitchen for hours making hundreds of cookies in all shapes and flavors, only to eat them—a much better end of the deal.
Continuing the cookie tradition I have to share one of my favorite cookie recipes. This Italian lemon knot cookie recipe is adopted from my “grandmother” and they are so delicious!
