WDIET : Wow! Menu Recipes

by KalaLea on June 10, 2011 • Posted in Recipes

With the excitement of my first WDIET : Wow! workshop, I failed to take photos of the food before the participants devoured these yummy, vegan treats but we managed to take one shot before packing up. Seeing that it was teetering on ninety degrees HOT, it was important for me to prepare light yet filling dishes. I only used the stove once to cook the pasta; I put my blender to good use though!

Berry Guacamole

Recipe by KalaLea K

Serves 4 gracious guacamole eaters

Avocado has become one of my favorite fruits over the past three years. It can be eaten any time of the day including for breakfast.

Avocados are the best fruit source of vitamin E, an

Sweet potato fennel mash

Recipe by KalaLea K


Serves 3-4 sweet ladies or gents

Sweet Potato Tip: In addition to removing toxins or metals from the body, you can use sweet potato if a child swallows a coin. Just feed him or her plenty of sweet potato and it will stick to the object and allow it to come out earlier in the bum. This cooling veggie is super rich in Vitamin A. Remember, they are awfully sweet so eating

  • During my farm stay in Bahia, Brazil years ago, I read the 1977 book, How to Save Your Own Life by Erica Jong. The other day I came across the notes I copied from the book: 1) Renounce useless guilt 2) Don't make a cult of suffering 3) Live in the NOW (or at least the soon) 4) Always do the thing you fear the most; courage is an acquired taste like caviar 5) Trust ALL joy 6) If the evil eye fixes you in its gaze; look elsewhere 7) Get ready to be 87 years old. So splendid. Happy Free Friday!! #selflove #sunshine #books #1977 #ericajong #ridingthewave #onlyyoucansaveyourownlife
