Delicious Healthy Spread

I just got a Vitamix. Thank you Airmiles! 🙂 As a result, in just one day I made a variation on this recipe, guacamole, salsa, and black bean burgers. And, of course, a kale-based smoothie. The good news is that I’ve made this recipe once before, in my pre-Vitamix life, and it worked just fine. I used my Nutribullet, but a food processor would have been a better choice, as I almost broke it.

This recipe is from the most recent issue of Alive magazine. I’ve added my variations in brackets.

The right foods can help feed your brain. Click here for the continuation of my article in 24 Hours newspaper.

Vancouver and the Lower Mainland have two distinct seasons — wet and dry. Though the cold and wet weather seems to entice us to cocoon indoors, become less physically active, and crave rich and heavy comfort foods, it is possible to adjust to the season with healthy habits.
