There’s so much out there as far as information regarding health. Our culture has become one of obsession and its elusive object is health. Bring up health in a social setting and everybody, regardless of evidence of health in their own person or not will staunchly defend their knowledge, beliefs or ideas about health.
If we look at health as it exists today, in our society, it is both black and white data to the medical profession and conversational banter to our public.

Don't write too many recipes anymore as there are so many fabulous recipes cycling online. Trying as well, to create in easy downloadable form, such as the image. I get asked for this recipe often though as hummus is regularly served at my workshops.

This version uses organic corn, green onions, diced hot peppers and an asian spice mix.

This is a terrific holiday bring-to-an-event dish that looks pretty and is completely satisfying for all plant-eaters and anybody else. The textures of the grains, walnuts, goji and coconut bacon add to the savory, sweet and spicy flavor.
Serve as a side dish or a main with side of roasted brussels sprouts. Tastes best served at room temperature.
