Cheezy Kale Chips

"Cheezy" Kale chips
recipe created by Snacking Squirrel


5-8 leaves kale greens
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
a pinch stevia (optional)


A. Wash kale and strain, placing in a large bowl
B. Squeeze/add lemon juice and apple cider vinegar
C. Marinate with your hands to evenly coat kale leaves
D. Sprinkle on spices and yeast and massage again
E. Dehydrate at 120 Fahrenheit for 7-8 hours

I also chopped up some zuchinni, bell pepper, and
 tomatoes from my garden, in a greek seasoning rub

Oh and HOW CAN I FORGET! I failed to announce I am hiking the 
West Coast Trail with my Dad tomorrow!!! So these dehydrated veggie 
snacks will be an awesome addition to soups and meals, or enjoyed just as is :)

The finished product bagged in Ziploc and ready to travel

"Cheezy" goodness, these kale chips are low calorie, vegan, gluten free,
sugar free, low fat, dairy free, pretty much raw, delicious and healthy!

Cacao Coconut Bliss Bowl

Snack time for Snacking Squirrel gets a little bit messy...

This raw vegan mess was simply scrumptious and I wouldn't have it any other way!

Sliced banana topped with melted Artisana's Raw Cacao Bliss Coconut 
Butter and paired with 1/3 of Art Of Raw's Spiced Cacao Goji Maca Bar

So refreshing on a hot day since I threw it in the freezer for a few minutes to chill

Summer Salad Sandwich

The lazier I am the more creative I become...

This open-faced "breakfast" sandwich has everything I love

Gluten free bread topped with wild salmon salad, chickpeas, avocado, red pepper, 
red onion, dill pickles, a poached egg, spinach, yellow mustard, and black pepper

Because hey, it's SUMMER and sometimes your mind does weird sh*t haha
