Thanks to everyone who has left comments and entered the Unprocessed giveaway! Remember, keep commenting! The more times you comment, the better your chance to win. And let me tell you, the winner is really going to love this book. Now, if you don’t win, you can still get your hands on a copy of this book over at Chef AJ’s site. Get one for yourself and buy some to pass along to those people in your life who could use a little encouragement to eat and get healthy.
As promised, here’s a sneak peak inside the pages of Unprocessed. These are super easy and super delicious and they are my new post-workout treat:
In the bowl of a food processor, grind 2 cups of unsalted peanuts into a fine powder…
Then add 1 cup pitted dates and 1 cup dried, tart cherries…
process until a ball forms…and then add in the vanilla and process again.
I patted the mixture into a 9″x9″ pan lined with parchment paper, but you could also form these into balls. Keep in the refrigerator.
Recipe courtesy of Chef AJ. Coming up in future posts I’ve got food porn photos of: Portabella Mushroom Stroganoff, Sweet Potato Nachos, Berried Treasures with Macadamia Nut Creme, Kung Pau Tofu, Ginger Slaw and Nutrient Rich Black Bean Soup.
