Here's what I LOVE about Adam's book. Psst....recipe for Heavenly Halva is at the bottom of the post.
Adam highlights interesting nutritional information about superfoods that are beneficial to include in your everyday like pistachios and black beans. Along-side the superfood profiles, Adam, includes several mouth-watering recipes. I was delighted to see many of my favourite affordable staples that I include on my Everyday Pantry Shopping List like sunflower seeds, quinoa, and brown rice.
What I love most about Adam's recipes are that they offer healthy and delicious replacements for unhealthy everyday favourites. This means you do not have to give-up anything while making your lifestyle transition. Included in E3 for Life are Kale Chips, Make it Yourself Mayo, Zucchini Nut Muffins, Ultimate Raw Chocolate Mousse and Chocolate Popcorn. Yum! The recipe that jumped out to the most to me is Heavenly Halva because it was easy to make with affordable ingredients that I have on hand like tahini and sesame seeds. See recipe at the end of post.
Adam went from being from a 27-year old being pre-diabetic, overweight guy with high blood pressure, cholesterol who suffered from depression to who he is today: a dynamic entrepreneur, author and spokes-person for healthy living. So if anyone can teach you how to transform your life ~ Adam's the one. And his book, E3 for Life, teaches you how to attain abundant health and happiness with ease.

I love this recipe because it is quick to make, high in protein and healthy fats to balance blood sugar. It is a practical recipe to incorporate into your everyday cuisine as you can make a large batch and store in your fridge or freezer for quick snacks on-the-go!

4 tbsp tahini
3 tbsp natural honey**
1/2 tsp Himalayan crystal salt***

Recipe from Adam Hart's E3 for Life. pg.110.
* You can replace the almonds with cashews as they tend to be more affordable and substitute well with one another.
** I recommend using a local and/or raw honey. Hone is only healthy and sustainable if you use the good stuff. Otherwise most honey is cut with additives like corn syrup and bees are tended to in a way that destroys their habitat. You can also replace with organic dark maple syrup.
***Feel free to use any high quality sea salt. I would start by adding a pinch and more to taste if needed.
