Yesterday I received this from my 2 year old at school
I have never been the sappy one, but I was completely sappy. This was just the reminder I needed from her. Year 2-3 has been extremely trying for us.

You name it, Gentry’s done it.
But what 2 year old hasn’t? And what mom WISHES she could transport back to those 2 year old days? Well, every one except my mom probably. She receives daily “Was I like this” questions from me followed by “I’m sorry.”
But I wouldn’t change it for the world.
So in honor of all mothers out there… I have some healthy, unique Mother’s Day recipes to share.
Spicy Radish Nut Salad
1 TBS chopped, peeled ginger
1/4 c creamy nut butter
1/4 c rice vinegar
2 TBS soy sauce (try Bragg’s Amino Acids)
2 TBS brown sugar (try coconut palm sugar)
1/4 c coconut oil
2 small cabbage, finely shredded
1 medium daikon radish, sliced into strips
1 c red radishes, sliced thin
handful of slivered nuts to top (use same as nut butter)
Place chopped cabbage, radishes and daikon in a bowl with the nuts. Place the other ingredients in a food processor and blend. Drizzle mixture on top of radishes and cabbage and mix to coat. Garnish with more nuts.
Yellow Squash Hummus
2 small yellow squash, deseeded and chopped
juice from 1 lemon
3 TBS coconut oil
2 TBS garlic, minced
1 tsp of salt and pepper
1/2 c tahini
1 TBS of each: cumin, chili powder and turmeric
1/2 cup almond meal flour
Add all ingredients except tahini to a blender. Mix well before adding in tahini. Season to taste and pour into a bowl to dip with just about anything!
