The Advo Peeps
24-Day Challenge Cookbook and Shopping List
Forward
This cookbook has been lovingly compiled by the Advocare Peeps group. Each recipe has
been crafted by a 24 Day Challenger doing his or her best to follow the program. This
cookbook is not from Advocare corporate, but we’ve done our best to help each of you
explore new and interesting ways to cook and eat during your Challenge, and on into your
new lifestyle. Many of these recipes were written by regular people, please read the entire
recipe before starting to cook. We have included a helpful letter on How to Grocery Shop as
well as a Shopping List to pull out and take with you to the grocery store.
For recipes that the (amateur) editor of this cookbook believes to embody a vegetarian
lifestyle, you will find in the margin this adorable little apple graphic.
We recommend becoming comfortable with your portion sizes before experimenting too
much cooking. Because we work with three different versions of portion size, the recipes
are not broken down to reflect any single “serving size.” For soups, Challengers find it
helpful to measure out the vegetables and protein before cooking to judge how much to
serve when eating. For mixed protein, carbohydrate, vegetable main dishes, it is helpful to
plate the carbohydrate, then serve the protein overtop rather than mixing (if possible) to
measure more accurately. As you continue your Advocare journey, you will become better
and better at judging the proper potion size without getting out the measuring cup and
food scale.
Many recipes use the Advocare Products Meal Replacement Shakes and/or Muscle Gain.
The Meal Replacements Shake, or “MRS” as abbreviated in our cookbook is a balance of
protein and carbohydrates. Monitor how much of the MRS you are consuming in a recipe to
decide whether you’ve replaced the entire meal, or if you should supplement with other
food. (EG – MRS cupcake = meal, Coconut Buff Bites = protein supplemented carbohydrate
/ healthy fat snack). Muscle Gain or “MG” as abbreviated in our cookbook is a great
supplemental source of protein and is not intended to replace consuming lean protein
sources as listed in the Shopping List. When added to recipes, it increases the nutritional
value of the snack.
When eating Advocare Style, we try to keep our foods low sodium. As a guide and
reminder, the recommended amount of sodium per meal is less than 600mg. USDA
recommends healthy adults keep sodium intake between 1,500-2,300mg daily. Most of our
recipes utilize no-salt seasonings, or very little added salt.

HOW TO GROCERY SHOP:
Plan to spend most of your time around the edges of the store. The perimeter of the store is
where you’ll find nearly all of the best food – the fresh vegetables and fruits, the whole
grains, healthy fats and lean meats. Along the aisles in the center of the store is where you’ll
find the more processed and packaged foods. Processed foods are made to last weeks and
sometimes months before they begin to break down – to the contrary, you want to pick
foods that can be utilized by your body quickly.
Vegetable and fruits: Choose fresh over frozen over canned. Fresh vegetables and fruits
nearly always contain more vitamins and minerals, more fiber and more phytochemicals
(beneficial plant-based chemicals that have many disease-fighting properties). Frozen
foods lose some of their freshness, flavor and nutrients but are convenient. Canned foods
are often higher in sodium and sugar content, and nutrients tend to dissolve into the liquid
in the can.
In the produce department: You’ll understand the importance of looking for fiber, vitamin
A, vitamin C and the colorful foods (such as tomatoes, squash, berries) that are rich in
phytochemicals.
At the meat and fish counter: Look for lean sources of protein – preferably fresh cuts from
the butcher.
Don’t just shop for foods, shop for nutrients. You’ll soon realize why the foods on your list
are so good for you. Be sure to read through the Cookbook we’ve compiled, and amend
your personal shopping list to fit your tastes, plans and family size! Most of all – enjoy.

Beat eggs and almond flour together. Note: almond flour often has clumps, which is
why sifting is important.
Mix shredded zucchini, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper together, and
combine with egg mixture. Meanwhile, set a large cast iron skillet over medium-low
heat. When hot, add cooking spray and bit of water to coat the bottom of the pan.
Spoon the mixture into the pan in desired sized fritters.

Overnight Banana Coconut Oatmeal
Very ripe bananas
1 c Steel cut oats
2 cans Light coconut milk
½ c Water
Ground flax seed
Vanilla
Cinnamon
Nutmeg
Shredded apples
Add all of the ingredients to a slow cooker. I have a 6-1/2 quart slow cooker, but 31/2 quarts is big enough for this recipe. I can double the recipe in my slow cooker
when I'm feeding more than 4 or 5 people. Stir it. Put on the lid. Set it to cook on low
for 7 hours. That's how long it takes in my slow cooker, anyway. The cooking time
can vary greatly from one slow cooker to another. Cook overnight, wake up to the
sweet aroma of bananas and coconut milk. Don't lift the lid until it's done!

Butternut Squash Soup
1 butternut squash Peeled, and diced in cubes or cut in half
seeded and placed down on sheet works too.
2-3 Parsnips (look like white carrots), peeled and diced
2-3 Carrots, peeled and diced
4-8 cloves of roasted garlic depending on how much you like
garlic. Roasted is sweeter and mellow in flavor. I just roast a
whole head and add as much as I think tastes good.
1-2 leaks, split in half, rinsed and
2-6 sprigs of fresh thyme
chopped
1 carton of veggie stock or chicken
1/2 onion
stock.
Preheat oven to 375°F. Place all diced veggies (squash, carrots, parsnips) on a sheet
tray, add a little oil to prevent sticking and salt/pepper, you may need 2 or 3 trays as
it comes out to be a lot of veggies. Roast in preheated oven for 25-40 mins until fork
tender and nicely browned. To roast garlic cut off the top wrap in foil and place in
oven, add oil if you want to coat the whole head check garlic after 15 minutes could
take up to 30 depending on the size.
While veggies are roasting add your chopped leak, onion and thyme to the pan on
med heat and cook for about 5 minutes until tender and translucent. I just turn off
the head and wait till my garlic is roasted and then add in the whole cloves saute a
little more and add in about 2-3 cups of the stock and simmer while the veggies are
finishing in the oven. Once the veggies are all cooked, puree all the veggies along
with the leak/stock in a food processor, blender or in the pot with an immersion
blender. It will get thick so add more stock if needed. You will have to do this step in
batches as you don't want it to splatter out of the blender/processor.
Add back to pan, taste and adjust seasonings and consistency with more stock if you
want a thinner soup. Then you’re done super easy!
* you can add any veggie: Sweet potato, turnip, celery root, rutabaga, and apple as
well its pretty versatile, and I've made it many different ways.

Baked Turkey Meatballs with Spinach
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon crushed red
pepper flakes (optional - adjust to
your preference)
16 oz frozen chopped spinach
(defrosted, drained, and squeezed to
remove excess water)
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup chicken broth
2 1/2 lbs lean ground turkey
2 large eggs
Preheat oven to 400°F. Prepare a large baking sheet by lining with foil or parchment
paper and spraying with cooking spray.
In a frying pan on medium heat, heat olive oil until hot. Then add onion, garlic, salt,
pepper, thyme, oregano, and red pepper flakes. Sauté until onion is tender (about 56 minutes total time). Add spinach to pan and combine with onion mixture. Add
Worcestershire sauce and chicken broth and mix well to combine. Cook until most
of the liquid has cooked out (evaporated). I don't have much liquid in my pan after I
combine all these, but it will depend on how well you drained your spinach. Remove
from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
In a large bowl, combine the turkey and egg. Add cooled onion/spinach mixture to
the meat. I do all of this step with my hands, but you can use a spoon if you prefer.
With your hands, create meatballs that are about 1 - 1 1/2 inches in diameter and
place them on the baking sheet. Leave a little bit of space between each meatball.
When you are done shaping your meatballs, you will probably have about 40-42
meatballs from this recipe. Don't need that many? Freeze them after baking or cut
this recipe in half (but I say freeze them and then you've done the work only once
and have a future meal).
Bake until your meatballs are cooked through with an internal temperature of 160
degrees F - which was about 20 minutes for my oven. Remove from oven and serve
as desired.

Chili Cilantro Lime Crockpot Chicken
One large free-range organic whole chicken. Mine was 6# for a 6 quart slow cooker.
Dry rub (black pepper, chili powder, cayenne powder, ground cumin). I used about a
tsp each of pepper, cumin, and a tablespoon each of the chili powder and cayenne .
1/2 cup of lime juice (about 2 limes).
1 extra whole lime for stuffing inside your chicken (yes that makes 3 limes total).
2 generous handfulls of fresh cilantro.
3 cloves of garlic.
Chicken stock
Wash your chicken off under cold tap water and then dry with paper towels.
Dust your chicken with pepper, and apply an even coating of chili powder, cayenne,
and cumin to your taste. There is no magic amount or formula to use, yet do try to
cover the whole bird with some spice. This also helps give the golden brown color
you see in the picture.
In a blender or food processor, combine your lime juice, cilantro, garlic, and chx
stock. Pulse until an even consistency is reached.
Take your extra lime and poke lots of holes into it with a fork. Now dust this lime
with chili powder and stick it into the cavity of your chicken.
Find a ziplock bag or crock pot liner large enough to hold your whole bird. Place
your bird in the bag and pour your wet marinade over it. Use your hands to make
sure the marinade is applied evenly around the chicken and under the skin, this is
the important part. You can puncture the chicken breasts a few times with a knife
for the marinade to seep into, yet this is not necessary. Making sure you get the
marinade well applied and under the skin will do the trick.
Seal your bag tight so that the marinade is making contact with the chicken all over.
I used a crock pot liner bag which I pulled tight around the chicken and marinade,
and then stuffed that into another large ziplock bag. Let your chicken marinade
overnight. I know, you have to wait, but the morning will be true dump-and-go style
cooking. Place your chicken in your slow cooker along with any marinade left over
in your bag. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. I would recommend closer to 6. It will be
glorious.

Date Night Pizza
2 cups cooked, riced Cauliflower (“rice” it by chopping it finely, using a food
processor, cheese grater, or smashing it with an avocado tool)
2 eggs
2 teaspoons Oregano
1 teaspoon Fennel
4 teaspoons Parsley
Toppings of your choice. (I went with some fresh marinara sauce,, turkey sausage,
shredded chicken, etc, and topped it with a generous sprinkling of fennel, oregano,
parsley, basil, and thyme.)
Preheat oven to 450°F. In a bowl, mix together cooked, riced cauliflower, eggs.
Spread dough mixture onto a baking sheet or pizza pan. Make it as thick or thin as
you’d like. Sprinkle with the herbs. Cook in oven for 15-20 minutes, until desired
doneness is reached. Some edge-burning is normal. Remove from the oven, turn the
oven off, and cover with your favorite pizza toppings. I recommend covering the
entire crust with toppings for ultimate deliciousness. Any plain crust around the
edges just ends up tasting like cauliflower, but, with the sauce and stuff on top, it all
just tastes like regular pizza. It’s like magic!
Turn your broiler on High. Place your pizza with toppings on the top rack near the
broiler. Watch it until the cheese melts and bubbles and until the toppings look the
way you’d like. I broiled ours for almost 10 minutes because I like really crispy!
Remove from oven. Dough will typically be drier around the edges and softer in the
center of the pizza. I used a spatula to serve it up, and we ate it with a knife and fork
– it was too soft for pick up.
Mango Coconut Chipotle Chicken
1 pound of chicken (breasts or thighs).
1 can of coconut milk (we use TJ’s
light coconut milk)
1 large softball sized mango or 2 small
mangos. Look for one that is not quite
ripe yet, nice and firm.
1 tablespoon of dried chipotle flakes.
Dump can of coconut milk into slow cooker. Peel mango and cut it into large and
medium cubes. Throw mango cubes along with the mango’s pit into slow cooker.
The meat on the pit will add flavor. Cut chicken into cubes as well. Dump them into
cooker. Add chipotle flakes and stir well. Cook on high for 3 hours or on low for 5 to
6 hours.
This recipe is a great blend of sweet and spicy. It will be sweet with the mango, so
it’s your call if you want to add extra chipotle flakes to balance things out. We love
the heat, so we added slightly more flakes at the end. Dried chipotle flakes aren’t
easy to find at your common grocer, yet they are a great thing to have on hand in
your kitchen. Just remember to toss your mango “bone” out when you serve. This
one works very well on top of “riced” cauliflower and garnished with lime. Enjoy!

1 tsp. chili garlic sauce or sriracha
3 green onions, chopped
Rinse and chicken and chop into bite size pieces. In a medium size sauce pot, add the
orange juice, zest, ginger, coconut aminos and chili garlic sauce or sriracha. Set over
medium heat and let simmer to reduce and thicken while the chicken cooks. In a
sauté pan, heat 3 T of chicken stock of your choice, over medium high heat. Add the
chopped chicken thighs and cook until a nice brown crust has developed on the
chicken pieces, about 6 minutes. Add the chicken to the sauce pot and stir to coat
with the orange sauce. Serve topped with sliced green onions. *Taste your oranges.
If they don’t taste orange-y, then neither will this dish. Use tangerines if you gotta or
add a teaspoon of stevia until you’re satisfied with the flavor.

Sausage in Peppers
1 pound of ground chicken or turkey
hot sausage.
5 assorted bell peppers. I went with 2
green, 2 red, 1 yellow.
1/2 head of cauliflower, grated or
chopped into a “rice” consistency.
1 small (8 ounce) can of tomato paste.
1 small white onion, medium dice.
1/2 head of garlic, minced.
1 small handful of fresh basil, minced
(or 2 tsp. dried).
2 tsp dried oregano.
2 tsp dried thyme.
Cut the tops off of your peppers and scoop out and discard the seed, yet do save the
tops!
Process or chop about half a head of cauliflower into “rice” and put in a large mixing
bowl. Add your minced garlic, basil, and dried herbs, and onion to your cauliflower
and mix by hand.
Use a very hot skillet to lightly brown your sausage. This step is entirely optional
based on your motivational level. The sausage will cook just fine in your slow
cooker, yet I personally like to hit it with a little sear to take the flavor up a notch.
Add your sausage and can of tomato paste to your bowl of seasoned cauliflower and
mix by hand. Let the kids do this part, getting hands messy in necessary, a spoon just
won’t cut it.
Fit as much of your sausage mixture into your peppers as you can. Place your
peppers into your slow cooker and loosely place the pepper tops back on. If you
have extra meat and cauliflower mixture, just jam in between your peppers and let it
cook. You could save it for a breakfast scramble too if you are awesome, yet I’d just
feed the slow cooker more.
Cook on low for 6 hours. I set my slow cooker to shut off once it’s temperature probe
hit 180 degrees. Maybe I just like using that feature. Just cook it on low for 6 hours.
Chicken Chile Verde with Tomatillo’s
1 pound of ground chicken or turkey
or 50/50
1 pound of tomatillos, chopped into a
very large dice.
1 small to medium butternut squash,
peeled and cut into a small dice.
2 small cans of diced green chiles.
2 medium green chile peppers such as
serranos (optional).
1 medium white onion, cut into a large
dice.
1 tbsp coconut oil.
2 tsp cayenne pepper.
1 tsp paprika.
1 tsp garlic powder.
Start skillet on medium heat, adding coconut oil and spices. Add ground meat and
diced butternut squash to the pan. Stir and turn occasionally until the meat is
browned and the squash is soft. Add fresh chiles and onion to the pan and stir in to
coat them with juices, remove skillet from heat source. Line slow cooker with
chopped tomatillos and canned chiles. Dump skillet contents into slow cooker, on
top of tomatillos and chiles. Cook on low heat for 4 hours. Serve as is or use bell
peppers as edible bowls.

Squash Lasagna
From couponconnections.com
1 Butternut Squash (or any variety really…I have used yellow before) – peeled, seeded &
sliced - If you don’t have Squash sub Sweet potatoes and slice the long way
1 Onion, minced
1/4 Olive Oil
Garlic, minced, a big scoop should do
16oz Tomato Sauce
1 package Trader Joes Uncooked Italian
Pizza Seasoning
Chicken Sausage
Basil
1 Roasted Red Pepper
Salt
Pre-heat oven to 400. Then start cooking sausage. To do so remove sausage from
casings and crumble and sauté on Medium High Heat. Add the onion and garlic at
this time as well. Now for The Sauce: In a blender or Food Processor add your 2
(8oz) cans of tomato sauce, 1 and 1/2 tablespoons Frontier Pizza Seasoning,
Roasted Red Pepper, 1 teaspoon Salt and a dash of basil. You could use fresh basil if
you would like, and puree. While your food processor is still running add in 1/4 cup
olive oil. Taste it, you will almost want to eat it just buy itself!
*Note if you want to make your own roasted peppers just cut in half and deseed.
Then place on a piece of foil skin side up. Spray lightly with olive oil and place in
toaster oven on 400 until skin is blackened. Once they are done enclose in foil and
let them sit for about 10-15min and peel off skin.
*You can also use a jar of pizza sauce if you would like, instead of making your own.
In a baking dish (9×9 ish pan) put enough sauce on the bottom to cover. Then
create a layer of squash followed by the meat mixture. Repeat with Sauce, Squash,
Meat until everything is used up. Make sure to leave enough sauce so the top is
covered. Cook for about 45 minutes until squash is tender. It will be liquidly, but
will solidify once it sits for a bit. Enjoy with some salad!

Quinoa Salmon Burgers
3 to 4 green onions, ends trimmed
1 large handful fresh cilantro or dill
and parsley
1 to 2 teaspoons lemon zest (optional)
or lime zest and chipotle chili powder
1 teaspoon Herbamare
freshly ground black pepper
1 to 1 1/2 pounds raw wild salmon,
skinned and deboned
1 cup cooked quinoa
Using a food processor fitted with the "s" blade process the green onions, cilantro,
lemon zest, Herbamare, and black pepper until it is finely minced.
Add the salmon and quinoa and process again until desired consistency. I like to
have a few little chunks of salmon still left. You might want to pulse it until you get
the consistency you want.
Form into patties and place onto a plate. Heat a large skillet over medium to
medium-high heat. Add pam and place a few patties in the skillet. I cook only three
at a time in a 10-inch skillet. If your pan is hot it should only take 2 to 3 minutes per
side to cook. If your pan is not quite heated it will take about 5 minutes per side and
they may stick a little.

juice, chili sauce, Braggs, sesame oil, green onions and cilantro to a serving bowl.
Once chicken is done, add it to the bowl. To the sauté pan, add olives, onion, and
garlic. Sauté until golden, about 10 mins. Add to the bowl. Toss everything to coat.
Remove stem of lettuce with a knife and slice the head in half, lengthwise. Peel the
lettuce into individual “cups” and wash. Pile chicken into lettuce cups and top with
avocado.

Thai Turkey Burgers
1 lb lean Ground turkey
2 green onions, thinly sliced
¼ tsp pepper
4 coconut buns, toasted
¼ c sweet chili sauce
¼ c rice vinegar
¼ c Lite canned coconut milk
2 cloves Garlic, pressed or minced
1 Tbsp creamy nut butter
1 tsp sized knob of ginger, grated
1 lime, juiced
½ Tbsp Braggs liquid aminos
2 c Napa cabbage, chopped
½ c Fresh cilantro, chopped
½ c peanuts, chopped
Thai Sauce:
Slaw:
Begin by combining all the ingredients together for the sauce: the sweet chili sauce,
rice vinegar, coconut milk,, garlic cloves, nut butter, ginger, lime juice and bragga,
and whisk until combined and fairly smooth. Scoop out about 1/4 cup of the sauce
and set it aside. Place the rest in a small saucepan and bring to a boil, then reduce to
a simmer and cook for 3-4 minutes until slightly thickened. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey with the pepper, sliced green onions,
and about 2-3 tablespoons of the 1/4 cup of sauce that you set aside. Mix until just
combined, being careful not to overmix but making sure everything is incorporated.
I ended up using the full 1/4 cup. The patties can be slightly difficult to put together
since they are so "wet," so to cook them, I heat a large nonstick skillet over mediumhigh heat, quickly formed the patties one at a time, placing them in the skillet. Cook
for at least 4-5 minutes, until you can see the edges brown and the turkey becoming
opaque so the burgers flip easily. Flip gently but quickly, and cook for another 4-5
minutes or until the burgers are cooked through. (Note: because of how wet the
ground turkey is, I am not sure how these would hold up on the outside grill.)
To make the slaw, quickly throw together the cabbage, cilantro and no salt peanuts,
tossing well. Add 3-4 tablespoons of the sauce, then toss well to coat. Add additional
sauce if desired. Place each burger on a bun and top with a heaping spoonful of the
slaw and additional sauce if desired.
Zucchini – Coconut Burgers

3 tsp fresh lime juice
2 tbsp minced cilantro
8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
2 tsp ancho chile pepper
2 tsp ground cumin
1 1/2 tsp grated lime zest
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

In a medium bowl, stir together cucumber, red bell pepper, avocado, lime juice, and
cilantro. Set aside.
Preheat broiler and set the oven rack in the upper third of the oven.. Line a baking
sheet with foil and place a wire rack on top of the foil. Lightly coat the rack with
cooking spray.
In a small bowl, stir together ancho chile pepper, cumin, lime zest, salt and pepper.
Add chicken thighs and toss to coat. Space the chicken thighs evenly on the wire
rack. Place the chicken under the broiler and cook until the chicken is just cooked
through, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Serve the chicken with the salsa.
Quiche
2 lg Sweet potatoes
1 lg Leek (dark green discarded)
1 lg White onion
24 Egg whites
Fresh dill
Lox, or fresh, thinly sliced salmon
Salt
Pinch of nutmeg
Preheat oven to 400°F. Thinly slice sweet potatoes. This is best done with mandolin
or food processor with slicer attachment, but can be done by hand. Spray baking
dish with Pam. A wide, shallow pan is best. Layer the sweet potatoes on the dish,
keeping in mind that the slices shrink as they roast, and the bottom of the pan and
sides should be totally covered. Roast potatoes in oven for 15 mins. While potatoes
are cooking, spray a pan with Pam and cook onions and leeks until soft. Remove dish
from oven and set aside. Reduce oven temp to 350°F. Mix the vegetables together
with egg whites, fresh dill, nutmeg and salt. Cover sweet potato with slices of
salmon. Then pour the egg whites and vegetables over all, and bake until set (30-40
mins). Do not overbake, remove when center is just set. And overbaked quiche will
have a dry, unpleasant texture.

Side Dishes and Snacks:
Baked Zucchini Chips
1 zucchini
No Calorie cooking spray
No Salt Seasoning of your choice
Preheat oven to 225°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or nonstick foil,
and spray. Set aside.
Slice zucchini into thin medallions, about the thickness of a quarter. (You can either
use a knife & a very steady hand, or a mandolin slicer.)
Lay out slices on prepared baking sheet, and spray tops lightly with additional
cooking spray. Sprinkle with seasonings of your choice. (A note on seasoning,
however - use LESS than what seems appropriate. These shrink considerably in the
oven, and if you use too much it gets very concentrated. It's better to end up under
seasoning and add more later.)
Place in preheated oven and bake 45 minutes. Rotate baking sheet, and bake an
additional 30-50 minutes, until chips are browned and crisped to your liking. These
are best eaten within a couple hours of removing from the oven, as they start to get
chewy if left out. One zucchini makes ½ serving (1/4 C. - 1/3 C. of chips depending
on the size of your squash).
Sweet Potato Chips
2 (medium) sweet potatoes, scrubbed
clean and sliced into 1/8-inch slices
2 tablespoons broth
1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon paprika
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place sweet potato slices and broth in a re-sealable
bag and shake to coat. In a small dish, combine the seasonings and add to the sweet
potatoes. Shake again to evenly coat. Lay potato slices on a foil-lined baking sheet,
and bake for 12-14 minutes. Remove the potatoes from the oven and flip. Cook for
an additional 10 minutes until crisp. Place potatoes on a wire cooling rack to cool
(they crisp up more while cooling).

Ratatouille’s Ratatouille
As envisioned by Smitten Kitchen
½ onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, very thinly sliced
1 cup tomato puree (such as Pomi)
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 smallish zucchini
1 smallish yellow squash
1 longish red bell pepper
1 small eggplant (my store sells these
“Italian Eggplant” that are less than
half the size of regular ones; it worked
perfectly)
Few sprigs fresh thyme
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 375°F. Pour tomato puree into bottom of an oval baking dish,
approximately 10 inches across the long way. Drop the sliced garlic cloves and
chopped onion into the sauce, stir in one tablespoon of the olive oil and season the
sauce generously with salt and pepper.
Trim the ends off the eggplant, zucchini and yellow squash. As carefully as you can,
trim the ends off the red pepper and remove the core, leaving the edges intact, like a
tube. On a mandolin, adjustable-blade slicer or with a very sharp knife, cut the
eggplant, zucchini, yellow squash and red pepper into very thin slices,
approximately 1/16-inch thick.
Atop the tomato sauce, arrange slices of prepared vegetables concentrically from the
outer edge to the inside of the baking dish, overlapping so just a smidgen of each flat
surface is visible, alternating vegetables. You may have a handful leftover that do not
fit.
Drizzle the remaining tablespoon olive oil over the vegetables and season them
generously with salt and pepper. Remove the leaves from the thyme sprigs with
your fingertips, running them down the stem. Sprinkle the fresh thyme over the
dish. Cover dish with a piece of parchment paper cut to fit inside. (Tricky, I know,
but the hardest thing about this.)
Bake for approximately 45 to 55 minutes, until vegetables have released their liquid
and are clearly cooked, but with some structure left so they are not totally limp.
They should not be brown at the edges, and you should see that the tomato sauce is
bubbling up around them.
Roasted Brussel Sprouts
Fresh Brussel spouts
Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar
Braggs Liquid Aminos
Pepper
Preheat oven to 400°F. While oven preheats, wash and trim brussel sprouts taking

bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients. Place the kale into a large bowl (or
two) and pour the mixture over the kale. Use your hands to gently massage the
mixture in, coating each leaf.
Use one very large cookie sheet, or two med sized sheets and distribute the kale
evenly so that it is in one layer. Bake for about 40 mins, removing the pans every so
often to stir and flip the leaves. This should be done 2-3 times during cooking. Chips
are done when they are crisp and dry. Let cool, then serve.

Asparagus Pesto Recipe
2 small bundles asparagus stalks (about 24), tough ends removed, chopped;
12 tbsp olive oil;
8 tbsp chopped walnuts;
Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste;
In a small saucepan over a medium-high heat, bring some water to a boil. Add the
chopped asparagus. Cook until slightly tender, about 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from
heat and strain the excess water by pouring into a colander. At the same time, run
cold water over the asparagus to completely stop them from cooking. Do this for a
minute or two, until they are cold. This process helps to keep the asparagus crispy
instead of mushy. In a small blender combine the asparagus with the remaining
ingredients. Blend until you achieve a desired texture. Store in a sealed jar in the
fridge when not using.

Garlic Mayonnaise
2 eggs at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 cloves minced garlic
2 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon
juice
2 cups light olive oil
pepper to taste
Warm the eggs, if need be, by placing them in a bowl of warm water for about five
minutes. Crack the eggs into a blender or food processor and add salt, mustard,
garlic, lemon juice and 1/2 cup of the oil. Blend the ingredients at medium speed.
With the machine still running begin to add the rest of the oil, drops at a time in the
beginning and then in a fine, steady stream. At some point the mayonnaise “takes”. It
thickens and becomes whiter. Watch closely, this is usually the signal to stop
blending and adding oil. If you continue to blend, the mayonnaise will get runny and
stay that way. In that event, use it as a salad dressing and start over again to get the
mayonnaise you want.
Test for salt and pepper. Make the necessary adjustments.
Transfer the mayonnaise to a serving dish or glass refrigerator container with a
tight-fitting lid. A pint canning jar serves this function quite well.

Low Sugar Coconut Almond Macaroon Cookies
2/3 c slivered almonds
1 ¼ c Shredded unsweetened coconut
½ c Splenda or Stevia-in-the-Raw
Granulated Sweetener
Pinch salt
¼ c Coconut yogurt
2 egg whites
2 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or use a silicone
baking mat. Use a small food processor or the bowl attachment for an immersion
blender to chop the almonds, just until they are ground but still a little chunky. Put
the ground almonds, shredded coconut, Splenda or Stevia, and salt into a mediumsized bowl and mix together with a spoon.
Separate 2 eggs to get 2 egg whites. (Save the yolks for something else or discard.)
Add egg whites, fat-free Greek yogurt, and vanilla to the dry mixture and blend
together with a spoon until the ingredients are well-combined.
Scoop out dough one tablespoon at a time and form into a round ball, then place on
the baking sheet about 2 inches apart. (I used a metal tablespoon, which worked
well.) Use a fork to press each ball down into a cookie slightly less than 1/2 inch
thick. (The cookies don't spread out much, so don't worry about that.) I also used
the fork to press the edges together because the batter is rather crumbly.
Bake cookies until they are well set and starting to get nicely brown on the edges,
about 30-32 minutes. (This was quite a bit longer than the cooking time in the
original recipe, but I liked the brown edges. If you want a lighter cookie, take them
out sooner.)

Lemon Chia Seed Muffins
½ c Coconut flour
2 Tbsp Chia eds
¼ tsp. baking soda
zest from 2 lemons
pinch of salt
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
½ cup almond milk mixed with ½
teaspoon liquid stevia
4 eggs
¼ cup coconut oil melted
Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl add coconut flour, chia seeds, baking soda and
pinch of salt and mix together thoroughly so the chia seeds and baking soda are combined
in the coconut flour well. In another medium bowl crack eggs and add, vanilla extract,
almond milk mixed with stevia or honey, melted coconut oil, lemon juice, and apple cider
vinegar. Add lemon zest to the dry ingredients you just mixed and pour the wet
ingredients into the dry and mix very well until fully incorporated, the mixture has
thickened and there are no clumps of coconut flour left. Pour into paper muffin cup lined
regular muffin tins or greased muffin tins ¾ way to the top. (I tried greasing my muffin
tins and making them and they stuck, but it might just be my muffin tin. I also noticed
that foil muffin cups are better than the paper if you want them to not stick at all to the
paper and have perfect scalloped edges.) Bake for 20-25 minutes or when pierced with a
toothpick and it comes out clean. Pull out of the oven and twist out of muffin tin and
place on a cooling rack and let cool for 10 minutes.

spread evenly.
Place the crust in the freezer to set, while you prepare the filling.
For the filling, combine all of the ingredients in a high-speed blender, or food
processor, and blend until thoroughly combined. You may need to stop and scrape
down the sides, or use a tamper, to keep everything blending smoothly. Adjust
sweetness to taste, if necessary.
Remove the crust from the freezer, and pour in the filling, using a spatula to smooth
the top. Sprinkle the additional cup of raw pecans over the top, and gently press
them into the filling for easy serving.

Coconut Yogurt
3-4 cups coconut milk (approximately two cans)
3 tablespoons tapioca starch (or tapioca flour) OR 1-2 teaspoons gelatin
Choose one of the following:
One packet direct-set yogurt starter such as Trad-flavored, Mild-flavored, or Vegetal
3 tablespoons Heirloom-style yogurt starter such as Greek or Bulgarian
3 tablespoons yogurt containing live active cultures purchased from the grocery
store (ideally an unflavored variety)
Heat the coconut milk to approximately 115°F. As the milk cools to 110°F, mix in the
thickening agent of your choice. If adding tapioca starch or flour, whisk the starch
into a small amount of milk and then mix that portion of milk into the larger portion
of milk and mix well to combine. If adding gelatin, sprinkle the gelatin into the milk
and mix well.
Once the milk has reached 110°F, add the yogurt starter and mix well to combine.
Incubate the mixture at 108°F to 112°F for 8 to 24 hours. Please note: coconut milk
generally takes a few hours longer to culture than yogurt made with animal-based
milk. If a more sour yogurt is desired, culture for a longer period. While a yogurt
maker is generally the easiest way to culture thermophilic varieties of yogurt, if you
do not own a yogurt maker, here are a few alternative ways to keep the yogurt at the
right temperature:
Wrap the jar in a dishtowel and put it in an insulated cooler with the cover on.
Make an insulated incubator out of a small crock pot by lining it with foam. Put the
jar of yogurt inside, put a piece of foam on top, and put the lid on.
Turn on the light in an electric oven, then wrap the yogurt in a dishtowel and put
it inside the oven.
Set the yogurt inside a food dehydrator that has the trays taken out, and that is set
for no higher than 110°F.
Once the yogurt has set (solidified), allow it to cool for an hour or two until it
reaches room temperature. Place the yogurt in the fridge for 6+ hours to halt the
culturing process. The yogurt will also thicken further as it chills.
