LL + Gosi Always Ugh I love my Gosi Bear, she hosted date night this week and after enjoying the delicious dahl she made from scratch, she then magically whipped up an amazing sweet popcorn. Move over Buckie's lemon poppy seed loaf, this is all I'll ever need. Lemon Poppy Corn 1/4 cup organic popping corn 1-2 tbsp sweetener - i.e. xylitol, coconut sugar 1 tbsp olive oil 1 lemon juice and zest (2 tbsp juice) 1 tbsp poppy seeds dash mineral salt Mix oil, sweetener, juice and zest in small bowl. Air pop the popcorn and toss with zesty lemon goodness and sprinkle poppy seeds and a touch of mineral salt. For more Polska popcorn magic, see Gosi's Dilly Kaz Corn recipe. It's also crazy delicious, guilt-free.

photo cred Cat So the beautiful pomegranates are out and about (or oot and aboot as apparently we Canadians say).  I have such a nostalgic memory of pomegranates as I fondly remember my brother Simmah carefully peeling the tough skin back to expose the bright red fleshy seeds and offering a handful to me. Ahhhhhhhhh. What a nice brother. So here's my recipe that I've been making for years (with updates as the years go by). It's super fresh and a bit chic (le freak) and all the cool kids are making it. Pom Pom Salad 1 large organic fennel bulb, chopped 1 organic pomegranate, seeded 2 cups organic quinoa, cooked/sprouted 1/4 cup organic parsley, chopped 1/2 organic apple, chopped 1 organic lemon, juiced & zested 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped (optional) 3 tbsp hemp hearts (optional) Himilayan salt & pepper to taste Combine all ingredients in a bowl and eat 'til your heart's content.
