Macadamia Moon Loaf

Adapted from the My New Roots Life Changing Bread, this loaf will be a staple in your life – You’re WELCOME! 
It is super simple to make and contains a variety of nuts and seeds that act as both healthy fats and quality protein – by noshing on this bread, you’ll be actively supporting your blood sugar levels and the ripple effect of that is like a hug to hormones, sleep, energy and so much more.


Loaded Veggie Pasta

Use the pasta base as a foundation to add in whatever seasonal veggies you have in your fridge. Think: Diced eggplant, chopped tomatoes, broccoli, green beans


Taro Fries

A golden batch of taro fries is an excellent source of dietary fiber and good carbohydrates, which both improve the function of your digestive system.
