Caramel Sauce

Standard

Caramel sauce is so easy to make and amazingly delicious. There’s no reason to eat that corn syrup stuff from a jar posing as caramel sauce. Its amazing on top of homemade ice cream or drizzled on top of brownies. Or as a dip for apples. There is no refined sugar and even has vegan options. Not to claim its a replacement for kale and carrots but its great as a special treat!

Caramel Sauce:

2 tbs butter or coconut oil

1/4 cup coconut sugar

1/4 cup honey

1/4 tsp salt

1 can full fat coconut milk or half and half

1 tsp vanilla

Melt butter, honey, and coconut sugar. Boil for 1 minute stirring constantly. Add coconut milk a little at a time, stirring constantly. Once it comes back to a boil, boil for 4-5 minutes until thickened. Take off heat. Add salt and vanilla.

It will continue to thicken as it cools.

Taco Seasoning Recipe

Standard

Tacos are one of the easiest and quickest meals to make and we always have the ingredients on hand. Tacos don’t have to be a processed unhealthy meal. By either making my own whole wheat tortillas or using plain brown rice as a base for a rice bowl, there is no need for overly processed flour tortillas. And by making my taco seasoning ahead of time, to avoid the preservative filled taco seasoning packet, tacos are a quick weeknight nutritious meal.

Top them with some lettuce, tomato, greek yogurt, and avocado and the meal is complete and incredibly healthy!

Taco Seasoning:

2 Tbs chili powder

4 tsp cumin

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp oregano

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (depending on spice level desired)

Mix all together.

This should season 2-3 lbs of meat, so the equivalent of 2-3 packets of taco seasoning. You can double the recipe and keep it stored in airtight container so you always have it on hand.
