OK guys!  This recipe might have some things that are new to you.  TRUST me, try it!

1- KAMUT is one of the oldest grains on the earth and is virtually untouched by GMO's.  It is so good for you.  AND it tastes great.  It reminds me of little pine nuts but minus the nut flavor.  Oh. My.  I think it is my favorite grain.  I seriously think you should try it.  You can buy it below or at your health food store.

2- COCONUT NECTAR, picture agave but good for you.  Apparently agave is getting some pretty bad rap for being next to high fructose corn syrup, in other words, bad for you.  So the alternative is coconut nectar.  One heads up is that it is more potent than agave.  So keep that in mind if you add it to a smoothie or something.  

3- NUTRITIONAL YEAST is a non-active yeast grown on molasses and then dehydrated. I use the flakes not the powder. If you are using the powder you need half as much.  It adds a savory flavor to food.  Some say it adds a nutty, cheesy or creamy flavor.  I say nutritional yeast is to salads what bullion is to soups.  It is delicious and adds a few more vitamins to your dish!
