  • They Fight Breast Cancer. Because orange fruits and vegetables contain a lot of Vitamin A, they can contribute to fighting breast cancer in the early stages.
  • They Keep Your Heart Healthy. Both alpha- and beta-carotene are contained in orange fruits and vegetables, and they will fight the damage caused to your body by the oxidation process.
  • They Enhance Your Skin. The majority of orange fruits and vegetables contain a lot of Vitamin C, which has many health benefits. One of the most important advantages is that it can keep your skin looking young and fresh due to its collagen-producing properties.

Bok Choy Smoothie

Bok Choy Smoothie

1 Cup water
2 Tablespoons Chia Seeds
4-5 Frozen peach or pear slices
Half-cup or more frozen blueberries
5 frozen strawberries, or to taste
(Cherries are also delicious)
6 Bok Choy leaves, lightly steamed

The finished smoothie has no cabbage-y flavor that I can detect, but since taste buds are different, you may need to experiment a little to find a berry–to–bok choy ratio that works for you.

Dairy-Free Cranberry Egg Nog French Toast (can be made the night before)

Dairy-Free Cranberry Egg Nog French Toast (can be made the night before)

Dairy-Free Cranberry Egg Nog French Toast (can be made the night before)

 

This easy recipe for egg nog french toast casserole is the perfect breakfast for Christmas morning!

Ingredients:

  • 1 loaf french bread, diced into cubes
  • 4 Oz fresh cranberries (1/2 of 8 Oz bag)
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 cups dairy free vegan Oat Nog
  • 1 cup vanilla coconut Milk
  • 1 cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

 

For the Topping:

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, diced into small pieces
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

 

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Cut your french bread into 1″ cubes and put into a prepared (buttered or sprayed) 9×13 baking dish.
  2. Whisk together the eggs, Oat Nog, coconut milk, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour over the bread and using a spatula mix it so all the bread is coated.
  3. Make the topping by mixing all the ingredients together until it combines and forms a wet sand type texture. Sprinkle that evenly over the top of the casserole, then place cranberries over the casserole. At this point you can cover it and place in the fridge to cook in the morning or bake right away. I have done both and both ways work well.
  4. Bake at 350 for 45-55 minutes. You should not see any wiggly uncooked egg mixture when it is done.
  5. Take the casserole out of the oven and serve warm! Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 oz. salami, (or I used @HolyCow Summer sausage) cut into short strips
  • 2 oz. Provolone cheese, cut into short strips
  • 6 oz. can black olives, drained and cut in half
  • 12 oz. jar roasted red peppers, drained and cut into strips

  • 1 T caper juice (from the jar of capers)
  • 1/2 tsp. dried Greek oregano
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Pepper to taste

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Prepare a pan with a few inches of water,  with a steamer insert in the pan.
  • Bring water to boil while you cut up the cauliflower.
  • Cut out the core of the cauliflower and discard and cut cauliflower into bite sized pieces.
  • When the water is boiling, add the cauliflower to the steamer or steamer basket and cook just 4 minutes. (Test a piece of cauliflower to be sure it’s tender but still slightly crisp.)
  • Dump cauliflower into a colander placed in the sink and let it drain well.
  • While the cauliflower drains, whisk together vinaigrette dressing, olive oil, lemon juice, caper juice, dried oregano, & spices to make the dressing.
  • Put the dried cauliflower into a large Ziploc bag with about half the dressing and let cauliflower marinate in the fridge, preferably for 4-6 hours or as long as all day. (Minimum marinating time is 2-3 hours if you don’t plan far enough ahead.)
  • When you’re ready to assemble the salad, slice the salami, Provolone, and drained red peppers into strips, slice mushrooms, and drain olives and cut in half. Measure out the capers.
  • Put the marinated cauliflower in a large bowl and toss with the salami strips, Provolone strips, red pepper strips, sliced mushrooms, olives, and capers.
  • Add more dressing until the salad is as moist as you prefer. (You may not want all the dressing.)
  • Season to taste with salt and fresh-ground black pepper and serve.
  • This salad can be made several hours ahead and will also keep in the fridge for a few days.
