Feel Good Snacks

Avocadole Guacamole
2 avocados
2 tomatoes
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 tablespoons onion flakes
1/2 cup currents or raisins
1 tablespoon coriander leaves
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tablespoon date sugar
In a quality blender or food processor, blend all ingredients until smooth. Serve as a dip for vegetables or toasted pita, or serve over brown rice or cut-up baked or steamed potato chunks. Serves 4-6.

Healthy Potato Fries

6 white potatoes, scalloped or cut into strips
2 cups apple juice
Olive oil in spray bottle
Mix the potatoes well with the apple juice and let sit for 5 minutes. Toss again and pour off the juice, leaving the wet slices of potato. Spray a light coating of olive oil on a nonstick baking tray and spread out the potatoes. Add a few more sprays of the oil over the top of the potatoes and bake in the oven at 325 degrees for 15 minutes on one side and 7 minutes on the other. Serves 3-4.

Whipped Cream and Strawberries
1 1/3 cups of macadamia nuts
1 cup soy milk
2/3 cup dates
Blend nuts, soy milk, and dates to make the best-tasting whipped cream. Eat with fresh or frozen strawberries (defrosted). A variation on this theme is to soak dried mangoes in the soy milk overnight and use fewer dates.
