Adding Powdered Greens to your diet, deliciously + a Giveaway!

I want to share some thoughts today on Vegan “Dieting” and healthy weight loss.   I’m absolutely NOT a ‘green smoothie’ gal – can’t stand the taste so I stopped trying to like them years ago.  But green powders, full of tons of nutrients like ‘Organic Spirulina’ Chlorella, Wheat Grass, Barley’ – that I can do everyday to add healthy, non-fat greens to my diet.  I’ve been hiding Oriya Organics green powders in my foods for over a year now and can really attest to the increased energy they can give an already healthy, plant based diet.

Mango Sweet Pepper Dressing and Sandwich Spread

 So I found a gigantic bag of beautiful little sweet peppers last week, which was great, but then, what do I do with all these peppers?    Mango Sweet Pepper sandwich spread and salad dressing is what I did.  This recipe makes up 2 1/2 pints of spread.  I froze one, made two wraps with the 1/2 pint and I still have waiting to be gobbled up in the fridge right now ……..HHHMMMMMMM!  I used my first batch of this sweet and spicy spread to hold together some wonderful healthy sandwich wraps.  The spread adds a subtle spicy compliment to the veggies.  I used some apples, romaine, more sweet peppers, cucs, fresh basil and avocado for fillings.  Healthy?  YUP!  Easy?  YUP!  Tasty?  Absolutely…… Print Mango Sweet Pepper Dressing with Raw Options Author: Angela @ Canned-Time.com Recipe type: Condiment   Ingredients 3 Ripe Mangos, fresh, pitted, sliced 2 Cups of Sweet Peppers, d-stemmed, some seeds removed ⅓ cup diced Onion ⅓ cup Rice Vinegar or Apple ⅓ cup Vegan Mayo (I used Earth Balance) ¼ cup Agave or Maple Syrup 1 tsp Sea Salt 1 tsp Black Pepper 1 tsp Garlic Powder or 2 fresh cloves diced 1 tsp Red Pepper Flakes Instructions…
