The weekend is here and all this girl wants to do is run to the beach.
The sky is blue, the wind is mild and the temperature is ideal for some fun in the sun.
As I sit here, daydreaming of the beauty outside of these four walls I am suddenly alerted to the newest delicious delight from our Sample Captain, Stephanie (the beloved creator of our popular raw vegan strawberry cheesecake).

Today's yummy-tummy-happy-dance evoking dish…

As one who is watching her carbohydrate intake, I was particularly happy about these due to decision to use iceberg lettuce in lieu of a bun. These little beauties are fresh, savory and judging from the directions of the recipes cards that she passed out, pretty easy to make!

If you missed the sample demo here in Ventura, FEAR NOT MY FRIEND! A recipe awaits you!

-free range ground turkey
-organic basil (chopped)
-organic tomato (sliced)
-yeast flakes

For everyone 1lb add

Combine ingredients together in a large bowl.
