I mentioned that part of our meal included a ‘healthified’ version of the famous Cheddar Bay Biscuits. Well, you’re being let in on the secrets of their deliciousness….finally! It’s the 21st of December of course (woah, where did this month/year go?!) so that means it’s time for another Recipe Redux post! This month they are celebrating 42 months of being around, so the theme has a little something to do with that….

To celebrate, we’re playing a little party game this month: Grab your nearest cookbook and ReDux the recipe on page 42 or 142. We can’t wait to see the books you’re cooking from these days – and how you make that recipe healthier.

Winter Wellness with GNC PUREDGE

Thanks to GNC for inspiring today’s recipe and allowing me to try their new PUREDGE line of products! All opinions are my own.

The holidays are here, friends! A time of year that I truly look forward to and cherish. Unfortunately, not everyone views this time of year with such carefree abandon. Some people see this time of year as stressful, full of temptation, and guilt inducing. That’s just sad! This should be a time of enjoying yourself, spending time with family, and participating in all the food and fun the season has to offer.

Raw Coconut Ginger Amaretto Bites

By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by the California Raisin Marketing Board and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time. Ladies (and gentleman!)….you’re in for a treat. Not only does the recipe I’m sharing today SCREAM ‘holidays’ but it’s also healthy, raw, vegan, and no sugar added! It doesn’t get any better.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA I was inspired to create this recipe because of a recent contest being held for Recipe Redux members. We were tasked with creating a recipe that features natures candy…RAISINS! I personally love raisins and eat them everyday. They taste great, but they are also pretty darn healthy as well. California Raisins in particular are an all-natural and dried by the sun….the only ingredient on the box is, you guessed it, raisins! They have zero fat, no cholesterol and no added sugar. Plus, raisins offer 9% of your daily fiber and potassium, and 6% of your daily iron.

Like I mentioned, I enjoy them on their own, but they are also very versatile and can be used in a number of ways.

After making these bites (hehe I feel like I’m Lindsay now!), I have to say I’m partial to them in raw treats. They add the perfect amount of sweetness and lend themselves well to the other flavors you combine them with.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
