    My recipe: broccoli slaw dressed with a combo of brown rice vinegar, fresh squeezed OJ, fresh grated ginger, orange zest, roasted garlic and white pepper tossed with black sesame seeds. You can pair this with or add any lean protein (shrimp, chicken, beans, tofu…) and a whole grain (pita, crackers, or throw in cooked, chilled whole grain noodles). Lots of layers of flavors!

    Fresh grated ginger, crushed red pepper and roasted garlic folded into almond butter. A simple, delicious & healthy sauce (warmed), spread or dip!
