I have found myself watching the clock all day looking forward to lunch!

My daughter Sadey and I made the yummiest salad EVER last night,
and we made enough leftovers to take us through the weekend!
Aren't we so smart?
To Make:

2 heads of broccoli ( no stems, cut up into tiny pieces)
1 head of cauliflower (also, no stems and cut up the same as broccoli)
2.5 C shredded carrots
1/2 C Sunflower Seeds
1 C Currants
1/2 C Raisins
1/2 C finely chopped Parsley
4-6 TB of Fresh Lemon Juice
Sea Salt
Black Pepper
Kelp Granules or Herbamore
and top it with a drizzle of 
Pure Maple Syrup.
This Salad will definitely be added to the 
21 Day Detox Meal Plan.
It's a beautiful, colorful salad.
You should serve it at your 
Thanksgiving table.

I just had a request from my friend Lindsi S. to share a recipe that I love...

Vegan Cashew Basil Pesto

Vegan Cashew Basil Pesto

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: none 
Total time: 5 minutes!!!

Yield: 2 cups

1/2 c fresh basil leaves 
1/2 c raw, unsalted cashews
1/2 c olive oil
2 T lemon juice 
2 cloves of garlic 
1/4 c nutritional yeast (optional, it replaces the cheese)  
 salt and pepper

To Make:
  1. Put all of the ingredients into your blender or food processor.
  2. Blend until the sauce is nice and creamy. You can use extra olive oil and lemon juice to thin things out, if you like. Just keep blending and tasting until it’s just right!
 I use this on sandwiches, pasta, pizza, salads, heck, I could eat it plain. It's soo yummy!

Good timing Linds! Hope you enjoy it. Please share with us what you use it on.

Thanksgiving is only one week away!
I'm focusing on recipes this week that I hope will inspire you to place the best and most nutritious food on your Thanksgiving table, and activities to help you burn some extra calories to prepare you for the FEAST! 
(average Thanksgiving Feast = 3,000 calories!!)
Show your body that you are grateful for it, by giving it the best and keeping it active!

Join me on Thanksgiving morning
to burn some calories and make a difference.
We have about 20 people so far that are meeting us to run 
in Draper.
This has been a tradition of ours for 6 years. 
We love to get our family out and to invite our clients to join in the fun too. 
This year will be the first ever 5k for many of our clients.
They better be ready to get addicted. It's expected!

Have a day full of the best!
