Collard Wrapped Rainbow Spring Rolls

2-3 Servings

5 medium-large sized collard green leaves

1 small red bell pepper, julienned

½ cucumber, julienned

¼ small head purple cabbage, shredded

2 whole carrots, julienned

1 avocado, sliced thin

Cilantro, as desired

Serve with coconut aminos and sriracha sauce


In a large frying pan fill it up ¾ of the way with water. Bring the water to a boil. On a cutting board take each collard green leaf and using a sharp knife shave the

thick stalk down until it is the same thickness as the leaf. This will allow the leaf to become more flexible for wrapping.

Using a pair of tongs place each collard leaf (one at a time) into the boiling water for about 30 seconds. Remove the collard leaf and lightly pat the excess water off with a paper towel.

Cut all your vegetables then create an assembly line for rolling. On each collard green leaf starting at the edge, place the purple cabbage, a few slices of avocado, cucumber, carrots, bell pepper and cilantro. Roll the spring roll as tightly as possible. Cut each roll in half then place a toothpick through each half to secure it.

Serve the rainbow spring rolls with plenty of coconut aminos and sriracha sauce for dipping.

Healing Vegetable Soup

On low heat add the tomato sauce back to the Dutch oven then add in the vegetable broth. Now add in the celery, bell pepper, carrots, cabbage, basil parsley and seasonings and bring the soup to a boil.

Lemon-Herb Panko Crusted Salmon

2 Servings

2 wild-caught salmon filets

1 organic egg yolk

1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon lemon juice

½ teaspoon lemon zest

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon black pepper

Lemon-Herb  Panko Topping:

1/3 cup gluten-free panko crumbs

1 ½ teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

1/8 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon rosemary, minced

1 teaspoon Italian parsley, minced

1 teaspoon basil, minced


Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

In a small bowl mix together the egg yolk, olive oil, lemon juice and zest, salt and pepper. In a separate bowl mix together all the panko toppings. Place the salmon fillets on a foil-lined baking sheet. Brush the top of each salmon filet with the egg yolk blend then top with the panko herb seasoning. The egg yolk allows the panko crust stick better.
