I love both sweet and savory foods, and root vegetables are delicious and nutritious! Check out this recipe for Moroccan Roasted Carrots

In addition, here is my very own recipe; a great waistline- friendly dessert. You can use Granny Smith apples or a mix of pears and apples. Just remember that portion control is still important because even though fruit has natural sugar- and is a healthier choice- it still has a lot of calories from sugar. Check it out!

  No crust, gluten free, dairy free, pear- raisin walnut crumble. Delicious! Super easy to make, too!

Dena Dessert10 – 12 small organic pears
1 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut milk
1- 1/2 cup organic raisins
1 cup crumbled walnut pieces
2 Tbsp organic vanilla extract
Cinnamon to taste (I like a lot)
**Optional fat added for more “stick to your ribs” goodness, and satiety. Use 3Tbs of Artisana Raw Organic Coconut Butter.

Chop up pears; skin and all, into chunks.
Mix in raisins, walnuts, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Heat coconut milk on low in large skillet, cut in Coconut butter (or not) Add all other ingredients, stirring periodically. Cook for 20 min. Put on simmer. Crumble up 1/4 additional walnuts and sprinkle walnuts and cinnamon on top layer. Cover. Simmer additional 15- 20 min. OR, for a crunchy top: If desired, transfer to a baking dish, bake in oven at 325 for additional 15-20 min. instead of simmering on stove top. Enjoy!
