I took a spin at baking.  I made for the first time homemade banana peanut butter oatmeal cookies.  I got the recipe off my Bakers Delight board on Pintrest.  Yep, they tasted as scrumptious as they sounded.  I also played around with ideas of homemade lunchables for the kids.  These lentil and black rice patties are a winner for me, made with psyllium husk for added fiber, compliments to another fabulous creation of Chef Tai, an amazing vegetarian, vegan chef.  And check out this chick pea and brown rice pilaf I made, recipe found on Pintrest off my Yummy board.  I made this very refreshing cucumber and tomato salad…..Check us out Sunhealers on Instagram for ingredients and more food ideas.

Moon Diet

I know I have been missing in action lately, but with good reason.  I have been busy as a bee working on a lot of exciting material for this year.  Last holiday season we were busy as ever, feeling like one of Santa’s Elves.  It was spectacular and I sure did have fun.  Now it’s GO time!!  I am moving in a new direction in life and mu business is evolving right along with it.  YEAY!!  Make sure to check out some of the NEW ventures i have going on under the EVENTS menu bar.  I am really excited about this year and am looking forward to share my passion with the world.

With that being said I started a Moon Diet this past Full Moon.  It consists of eating more raw fruits and vegetables, fresh vegetable and fruit juices and smoothies, and making sure you get protein and plenty of fluids. Also, keeping the seasoning light with fresh herbs and such.  You follow the cycle of the Moon and you eat accordingly to the phase it is in.  I have been making salads fun with homemade dressing.  The other day we made a creamy garlic dressing and a strawberry dressing…YUM!  We came up with two new smoothies one called “Kitchen Sink” and the other “The Black Monster”.

Vegetable Stir Fry


This was my delicious lunch the other day.  I made a complete vegetarian stir-fry.  I noodled off a zucchini and replaced it with the rice.  Use a spiralizer if you have one to turn the zucchini into noodles.  If not, just peel it vertically using a vegetable peeler then cut it into thin strips.  I sauted a red pepper, partially boiled green beans and broccoli, red onion, and a couple cloves of garlic, and shredded carrots in a pan with sesame oil.  I then added a homemade soy sauce made by the chef of the house, which is a special blend of coconut aminos.  Add the zucchini noodles at the end for about a minute or two.  Season with salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper.  If you cook the noodles down too much they will kind of disintegrate into nothing.

Vegetable Soup


I crave a lot of hearty food during Fall like pot pies and stews.  So the other day I made a hearty vegetable soup for lunch.  The kids have been sick lately as well deeming it a perfect time for soup.  I diced half a white onion and about 5 cloves of garlic.  I sauted them in the pot for a minute or two with a little bit of olive oil.  I then added a whole quart of vegetable stock before adding my vegetables.  You can really use what you have on hand.  This time I threw in  some diced carrots and celery, green beans, peas, and cauliflower.  I have even added yellow squash and broccoli to it before. I am a vegetarian so I like my vegetables.  I seasoned it with salt, a little bit of pepper, some garlic powder, and onion powder. I let it boil on medium high for about 15 minutes.  This is a really simple recipe and a good one to bring out on your sick days.

Green Juice


This was my lunch the other day compliments of Chef Tai.  It was a super green juice.  We juiced collard greens, spinach, lemon, apples, garlic, celery, cucumber and cilantro together in our juicer.  Garlic is good for your heart.  Cilantro is good to detox your lungs and respiratory system.  Collard greens, celery, and spinach is plant based protein.  And we all know how beneficial lemons and apples are to our health.  If you are detoxing or have a sugar imbalance, green apples are preferable.
