Sugar Snap Salad

sugar snap peas
buttercrunch or leaf lettuce
green onion
bacon bits

Throw in a little of everything you’ve got to this summery all-green salad. Wash, dry and tear the greens. Sluice in the onion, cucumbers and avocado. We like to leave the sugar snap peas whole. Others prefer to chop them diagonally. Add bacon bits for extra flavour, if available.

Use a dressing of your choice or, for an Asian flavor, use a little roasted sesame oil with rice vinegar.


Gluten-free Almond Bread Recipe


A good gluten-free bread is hard to find. This recipe makes a bread that’s delicious, healthy and easy to prepare. Thanks to our friend Marlie Thornley for sharing this with us. The recipe has been modified slightly from a sample found on Elana’s Pantry.

Dry Ingredients:
1/4 cup ground flax
1 1/2 cups almond flour
2 tbsp coconut flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

Wet ingredients:
5 eggs
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp apple cider

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. In a separate metal bowl, use a mixer to beat the eggs. Microwave coconut oil for 60 seconds to melt and add to the eggs with honey and cider while mixing. Then add wet to dry ingredients. Pour the dough into a loaf pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
