Apple & Cabbage Salad

Here is what you'll need:

  • 1 part chopped cabbage (purple or green)
  • 1 part diced organic red apple
  • fresh lemon juice to sprinkle over the salad

This salad is so simple, but extremely delicious! All you have to do is chop up the cabbage and apple, then simply sprinkle with a little lemon juice. 

The cabbage is great for bone, eye and brain health, helps the body detoxify, has anti-inflammatory properties and can help prevent cancer.  Apples are extremely rich in important antioxidants, flavonoids, and dietary fiber! The lemon is high in vitamin C and is the perfect ingredient to complete this salad. Enjoy! 

God Bless!

  • Excellent source of fiber

Okay, now for the recipe.

Coconut Date Cookies {gluten, grain, nut & refined sugar free}

These cookies are so delicious! They are really rich, so if you're craving something sweet, these are a much healthier alternative to a cookie filled with refined sugar.

You'll need:

  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut 
  • 1/4 cup unrefined date sugar (I like THIS kind)
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • a pinch of baking soda
Mix everything together in a small bowl. On a parchment lined baking sheet, place a spoonful of cookie batter an inch apart from each other and place in a 350* oven for 10 minutes. 

Yields around 5-7 small cookies.
