KALE! FALAFEL? BURGERS? NEATBALLS!!!

Inspiration comes from many people and places always! Lately Facebook has been my haven of collecting and sharing thought provoking and inspirational information.

COCONUT CHICK'N AND RICE

CHEF HEATHY’S COCONUT CHICK’N & “RICE”

Since Mother’s Day is in May, I decided to create this recipe in honor of her. She loves Indian curry food, although is not a fan of spice, so this is a mild dish. You can add as much or as little spice as you choose. Despite the fact that the recipe looks long, it’s really simple. A zap in the food processor, a quick mix in the blender, and a bit of chopping here and there. Allow at least 2 hours for the eggplant to sit in the dehydrator, but for best results, about 4-6 hours. Enjoy!

Sham Rawk Smoothie

SHAM-RAWK SHAKE WITH SOUL

This is Chef Adam Graham with a nostalgic smoothie inspired by fond memories from my youth. March is the time of year that the Shamrock Shake makes its appearance on billboards around the country. No longer do I cue up at the Un-Happy Meal trough to stuff my belly with industrial waste (watch the video). That’s not to say that I don’t miss drinking a Shamrock Shake… I do.
