Wild Salmon Poached in Coconut Milk With Mangos and Dill
Keep your skin on your salmon, and poach it in coconut milk (the canned kind in a non bpa can), sprinkled with Himalayan Sea Salt and Dill. After you cook the salmon, remove the skin, and squeeze with fresh lime.

Chicken in Red Wine and Anchovy Sauce – in a processor, put a can of anchovies, a 1/4cup balsamic vinegar, ½ cup red wine, 1 clove of garlic, and a 1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary, blend well and set aside. Roast 2 lbs of chicken legs coated in olive oil, sea salt, and herbs at 350 until juicy. Pour sauce on top and cook until sauce slightly thickens.

Roasted Beets, Fennel, Avocado, Orange, Walnut Salad – this is such and easy and fun salad. Shred fennel into a sauce pan with fresh squeezed orange juice, a splash of balsamic vinegar, a tablespoon of raw honey. When fennel is tender, remove and cool. Add roasted beets, fresh avocado and walnuts and toss.

Fair Trade Dark Chocolate and Pepitas – melt 1 cup dark chocolate in a pan with 1 tablespoon coconut oil, cinnamon to taste, and 2 tablespoons almond butter. Stir in pumpkin seeds. Spoon onto parchment paper and stick in freezer. Remove after hardens.
