So many people have the wrong idea about how brussels sprouts are supposed to taste, thanks grandma for ruining it for everyone! These bad boys are so simple, plus leave a tender inside and a crunchy outside.

This recipe is one of those that will leave people in disbelief that they are not eating potatoes. The cauliflower becomes creamy and satisfying, but does NOT leave you feeling full and gross like potatoes do! This can be your holiday pot luck go to and I promise you will be the hit of the fiesta.
As I was writing my hangover + holiday drinking guides (your signed up to my newsletters, right?) Link is here if not. I thought I should include some healthy drink options that are low sugar and seasonal. This recipe is made with a persimmon syrup and organic Hope vodka. Make sure you always take your activated charcoal when drinking or eat foods that upset your gut.
The holidays shouldn’t be a time for guilt or sacrifice. They’re a time for love and celebration! Alcohol can be a vibrant part of this celebration, believe me, I love a good handmade cocktail (see below) and a big glass of (non-toxic) wine, but you have to drink the right stuff…
That is why I recommend and personally LOVE Dry Farm Wines.
It takes some serious effort to eat a pomegranate, so most think, but either way the rewards are are worth it. In addition to providing a high level of antioxidants, remember antioxidants remove free radicals which are the bad guys causing inflammation. This fabulous fruit has small seeds that add a singular crunch and sweet, but sour tang to whatever dishes they make their way onto.
Incorporating activated charcoal into your detoxification regiment is a game changer. It absorbs all of the bad stuff, I am talking everything from food, stress, lifestyle, the environment, industrial chemicals, pesticides, additives, secondary smoke, pollutants, and heavy metals. Especially if you are like me and like to let yourself eat some “bad stuff” like pizza and vino🍷 every so often. The charcoal itself absorbs chemicals and reduces your absorption of toxins, reducing inflammation, bloating, and gas.
This recipe is my healthy festive holiday spin on the traditional Pumpkin Latte you see at places like Starbucks. The difference is my recipe does not contain added sugars (Starbucks is about 65 grams) and additives that leave you feeling horrible and add to weight gain and low energy. My recipe is an upgraded Bulletproof Coffee recipe with pumpkin and spices that are packed with nutrients like beta-carotene, vitamin A, and antioxidants that help with brain function and boost energy, plus it tastes delicious!
This dip is creamy and full of fall flavors. I prefer dips with no garbanzos because personally I do not do well with them because of the lectins. One you get the base of this down try adding your favorite herbs and spices.
