Chocolate Brazil Nut Maple Tahini Bites

I talked a little about selenium on my stories this week and thought it’d be nice if I provided a few of the studies I was referencing in the written word. If you were able to follow along, you already know of selenium’s benefits for mercury toxicity, thyroid regulation, and certain cancers, particularly breast cancer for women carrying the BRCA1 gene. SEElenium the research and the recipe for these brazil nut tahini maple chocolate bites below!

Almond Flour Pulp Pizza

This round, psuedo-pizza creation is hiding under the pseudonym of creativity, but it’s essentially just a cracker recipe masked as a larger shape. Rather than cutting it into squares, I utilized laziness to leave it as a giant sphere. And it even kind of held together like a thin crust pizza! Round of aPULPlause for this endless things you can do with almond milk pulp.

This noise was the soundtrack to my entire experience at Balans Organic Spa – an organic spa on Newbury St. in Boston. Here, I received a mini facial and a 30 minute session of floatation therapy.

Cannellini Bean Basil Garlic Dressing

This recipe is quite similar to the white bean dip I made upon finding out I had a chickpea sensitivity, found here. This one, however, isn’t as thick and makes for an awesome salad dressing. I used it as such, but definitely versatile enough to be a dip or a spread, too! So many options for it, it’s just plain (ba)sil-ly!!

Cinnamon Vanilla Almond Butter

I was gazing at the nut butter aisle at the grocery store the other day and could feel my blood pressure rising. Combination of being impatient because I was desperately craving the olives I had just curated for myself from the antipasto bar and frustrated at the additives in nut butters.
