‘Cheesy’ Scalloped Potatoes

_MG_2542

Did this picture sell you? Cause guess what…this is dairy free! Yep, you read that right – DAIRY FREE!

The back story to this amaze meal is as follows…The hubs & I heard about Boston Organics. Fresh, organic & cheap food delivery that comes to your door once a week. To begin, you pick what type of bin you want (fruits mix, veg mix or both), then tell them your fruit or veg “do not wants” & you can add on additional items each week (i.e. fresh eggs, bread, etc)! This past Tuesday was our first of many deliveries – cantaloupe, peaches, zucchini, potatoes, broccoli & spearmint and more.

So, what to whip up when you have all this produce at your fingertips? This dinner was inspired by the potatoes! Not only is this packed with ‘cheesy-like’ flavor, but it is full of healthy ingredients! So don’t get scared of all the  steps – it is SO worth it and now that I made it once it’s going to be quick to make next time!

Lets cut the cheese (or not…hehe)…

New Addiction: Brad’s Raw Leafy Kale

544728_10151386162133174_706366292_n

Oh man. Brad sure knows how to handle his kale! This is a ridiculously tasty snack! Well, I have only had the Piña Kale-ada (how cute is that name, right??) & I have had them as a snack every day for the past week.

The kale starts fresh, then is coated with goodness, such as coconut and pineapple (my fave) & then they are dehydrated at or below 115 degrees. The degree temp is key – at this level all the active enzymes are retained, not lost…which is great for us! To break it down, all the benefits of the kale are not lost, we  still get the essential nutrients & enzymes that raw kale has.

Brad’s Raw Foods has more then just raw leafy kale…so check it out & get your tatse buds ready for a party!
