These are delicious lunch box bars that are raw, frozen and highly nutritious. With the help of a food processor these are so quick to make with just a few simple and natural ingredients. This recipe can also be made without a food processor but the mix may not hold together as well and be more like a trail mix.
Into the food processor (chopping blade) place:
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup sesame seeds
1 cup coconut flakes
1 cup chia seeds
1/4 teaspoon sea salt.
1 cup organic coconut oil
1/2 cup raw organic honey
Place the mix into a rectangular baking tray and even out with the back of a spoon. You can line it with baking paper or if you are using a metal tray like this one can just tap the bottom to remove it when frozen. Ensure it is pressed very firmly. I like to cut the mix into bars at this point but you can also do it later when the slab comes out of the freezer. If you do it now then when frozen the pieces just snap apart, whereas later you will slice the slab with a knife.
Place into the freezer for about an hour and then either snap the pieces apart of slice. Return to the freezer and eat as desired. So delicious.

A stir fry is such an easy meal to make and this one uses ingredients which are quick to cook and full of flavour while being free of unnatural preservatives and additives.
I used coconut amino sauce for the first time in this dish and it has a lovely flavour. It is a healthy alternative to soy sauce and is made from coconut nectar with only 3.6 grams of carbohydrate per 5ml serve and l probably used half of that in the dish.
I used organic chicken fillets which l sliced into small pieces and set aside while l prepared the vegetables.
The main part of the dish is preparing the vegetables and you can just use what you have in the fridge. Stir fries are so flexible. I used the following:
2 organic chicken fillets diced
1/3 kohlrabi peeled and finely sliced
1 carrot finely sliced
3 spring onion green tops finely sliced
3 whole bunches of choy sum finely sliced with the ends removed.
1/2 cup bone broth or stock (I used turkey bone broth)
The Choy Sum is really delicious with celery like crunchy ends and then more bitter tasting leaves.
I also hadn’t used Kohlrabi before but as it is a member of the Brassica family of vegetables l thought it would go nicely in a stir fry.
Pre-heat your wok on a medium heat. Add a suitable oil such as coconut oil, sesame oil or extra virgin olive oil and brown the chicken. Add the kohlrabi and carrot and stir frequently until they start to soften. Add in the green veggies plus a few splashes of the Coconut Amino sauce and stock. Mix gently and cook until the greens have softened.
Serve into bowls and add seasoning to suit. I used pink rock salt and black pepper. I also added one tablespoon of cold pressed oil to increase the healthy fats.
