  12. Serve over pasta/raw zucchini noodles/anything you’d like!

*The fam had it over whole grain pasta with a side of roasted broc.
(sprayed with coconut oil spray & roasted for 25-30 minutes at 350)

I had mine over black bean spaghetti that I found at a local health food store!



Sprinkled each dish with about 2 tsp of Hemp Seeds for
some extra protein/healthy fat power!

Remember how I said leftover’s for 3 days?

The proof is in the not-so-professional pictures;
one day I will have a nice camera like everyone else
so you can see every nook & cranny of my food Winking smile

*Served over leftover black bean pasta,
roasted veggies, tomatoes, & kalamata olives
with a sprinkle of
Sea Kelp Seasoning!

*Black bean spaghetti, alfredo, olives, roasted veg.

*black bean spaghetti, olives, raw mushrooms, side of nori sheets,
& hemp seeds!

Speaking of HEMP SEEDS –
Brad from Hippie Butter has offered to giveaway
1 bag of toasted Hemp Seeds
1 bag of  raw Hemp Seeds
& 1 sample jar of Cacao Hippie Butter

That’s 3 winners!!

Did you know that
Hemp contains high levels of the recommended 3:1 ratio
of essential omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids?

which have been shown to reduce the risk of
cardiovascular disease, stroke, osteoporosis and diabetes.

Hemp seeds are also very protein-rich!

making for a perfect plant based protein source!

I hope you enjoy this recipe!
