    Crunchy Mama Tip: 

    Garnish with Popped Water Lily Seeds as a crunchy topping to this dish instead of crackers or croutons! This will add crunch and flavor. Also enjoy some melt in your mouth chocolate truffles for dessert after this nutrient packed meal! In addition, add in some Vitamin D3, K12, and Omega 3 drops to supplement this meal if desired.
