Cranberry Sauce (sugar free)
Usually the problem with cranberry sauce is that it is full of white sugar. My version has no white sugar, which is no easy thing when it comes to cranberries as they are so tart. I had to compromise with the amount of brown rice syrup added. I did try making it with only stevia as a sweetener and it really did not work well at all.
1 package whole, organic cranberries (fresh, not frozen)
1 organic apple, cored and chopped
1 cup apple juice
1/4 cup organic, brown rice syrup
1 tsp stevia (Sunny Dew is best)
Pinch of salt
Nutritional Tips: Cranberries are high in vitamin C, and have antioxidant and antibacterial effects in the body.
In clinical studies, cranberries have been shown to help maintain a healthy urinary tract and be especially beneficial to the eyes (they significantly improve symptoms of cataracts, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy).
Asparagus is always special and adding some alkalizing lemon juice makes it taste even better.
1 pound asparagus, washed, trimmed and cut diagonally into 2 inch lengths
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 lemon juiced
Dash of Spike seasoning
Nutritional Tips: Asparagus is full of nutrients! It is a very good source of vitamin K, the B vitamin folate, vitamin C, vitamin A and also numerous B vitamins (B1, B2, B3 and B6) as well manganese, copper, phosphorus, potassium and protein.
