Raw Vegan Superfood Tzatziki

Raw Vegan Superfood Tzatziki

Raw Vegan Superfood Tzatziki



I love Tzatziki and Spanopitas  I will admit.  I don’t eat one often so when I do it’s a awesome treat.  I love taking recipes and converting them and this one I’ve used several times but decided to add in some hemp and it tasted just as good!!

Adding in Superfoods to up the nutritional value can be easy!!  This also makes a great dip for veggies and with less water (so thicker) could be a great spread for raw (or not) crackers!!

-  grate half of a English Cucumber and put in a strainer or cheesecloth and let strain for at least an hour or even over night

-  1 cup raw Cashews

-  1/2 cup water (possibly more)

-  juice 1/2 Lemon

-  2 Garlic cloves (chopped or minced)

-  2 tbsp Hemp seeds

-  Himalayan Sea Salt to taste

Throw all ingredients into a Vita- mix or Blender and blend until smooth (start with 1/2 cup of water and you may need to add more depending on how thick or less thick you would like it)



Once all mixed well, smooth and to desired consistency add in strained Cucumber and 2 – 3 tbsp finely chopped Dill  – stir well.

Why and What Are They??



Google the word Superfoods and see what comes up.

No wonder people are confused these days!!

How does Salmon, Eggs, Broccoli and a few other similar foods get claimed as Superfoods?  What is the true definition of ‘Superfoods’?

I would like to share with you my beliefs, thoughts, journey with Superfoods and please know I am not here to claim that they cure things BUT I will share that they are nutrient dense foods that feed the body well and or at a cellular level.  As I say to people there is a BIG difference between eating and feeding the body.

I have also been paying attention to all the food blogs out there now and really truly have lost some interest in the whole game.  I know for me personally, with my history of my eating pattern that Superfoods – true Superfoods have helped me with  my health and conscious eating!!

Superfoods should be clean, organic, non-gmo and nutrient dense.  Our society has been lead to believe in the SAD Food Pyramid – don’t you just love it – I am big on becoming aware of programming that has been feed to me, society or that I have engaged in.  SAD – Standard American Diet – SAD – yup don’t need to go much into detail there!! :)  Diet – I so try to use other words as our bodies hear all – die – we don’t want or need to diet we need to eat to live, eat for optimal health.  Pyramid – most people have issues with pyramids (sorry couldn’t resist).

What I have also noticed is people don’t really understand Superfoods, what they are or how to use them outside of a Green drink, which I truly believe if most people even gave up pop (or soda) and or coffee (at least reduced it) and drank even one truly real Green drink a day, they would feel so much healthier, clearer or better!

My focus is going to be more on Superfoods, which ones I use / like, how to use them and creating more recipes with Superfoods.  It’s become a natural thing for me but I realize so many people are stuck and no wonder when I google Superfoods and what they are its rather confusing.

I will be going into detail over the next few weeks on Kamut, Spirulina, Chlorella, Hemp, Maca, Activated Barley, Rice Bran Solubles, Chia, Camelina, Raw Cacao, Tumeric and a few others!!  Sharing how to incorporate them more in your foods and meals and recipes – I just created for my beloved a Raw Chocolate Cheesecake with Superfoods – you can’t tell and it still tasted so yummy!! Recipe coming soon!

I feel that sharing and helping people learn about Green foods and Superfoods is so important these days – we have been misled, misguided and advertise to for profits not health.

Labelling is a joke these days and when I walk through a grocery store and look around and see that more than 95% of the store is catered to processed packaged foods and I don’t care what label is on it – natural, organic, added nutrition, gluten free it’s not for the most part real foods.

People look at me funny or give me the line ‘Green foods aren’t real foods’ to which I have learned to reply with a question ‘When did twinkles, hot dogs, pizza, pop, chips, (and I do use a few others) become real foods?”  Who made them?  Was it for health or profit?

So come back, check in and feel free to share as we start on the journey of learning about, using and eating more Superfoods in your way of eating!!

Beauty From the Inside Out

Beauty From the Inside Out

Real Foods



What does beauty from the inside out really mean?

As you know I love eating healthy, and helping, guiding, inspiring others to do the same.

We have been so programmed and lied to by tv, advertising and hidden agendas from corporations that are for profits not health – that it’s confusing and overwhelming for the average person these days. I so get that!!

Our bodies are the biggest source and signals for what is truly going on inside, but we’ve been taught to ignore that, not to trust our inner guidance ( and many if not most people are shut off from that connection).  If we need  to go to the dr’s  for some reason – the dr. may spend 10 mins with you, doesn’t ask about what you eat, how you live, if you exercise, mediate, laugh, get sunshine or how much water you drink, have a healthy sex life, if you like or hate your job or even your spouse and so on.  Instead they prescribe a pill maybe several in many cases..
Don’t get me wrong, if I broke my leg I would go to the dr’s but not for other things.

Our bodies talk to us, when in pain they are literally screaming at us to pay attention (unless of course you broke your leg :)).

www.jodiburke.comWhat we eat , put into our bodies can be reflected back in our hair- dry, brittle, shiny etc, our eyes – alive or dull, skin tones – dry flakey, dull or radiant, clean and clear or full of acne etc
Also our thoughts and emotions reflect out from our bodies as well.

Most people that are eating healthy live foods, also have mostly healthy thoughts and feelings ( no one is perfect nor should they be) that are self empowering, self loving, vibrant, alive and have more life.

www.jodiburke.comChances are they are also taking time for life enhancing or healthy things like exercise, yoga, nature, laughter, good sex, water, (oops wrong order??? Lol) fulfilling relationships ( in other words loving not draining or drama causing relationships) and work that inspires them and that they love (notice I didn’t use the word job???).

I’m on my way to catch a ferry this am and was in rush hour traffic – I cannot imagine doing this every day, how much time does it take and suck from someone not to mention energy?? I look at people’s eyes and faces and see so much stress………..the body talks.

The point I am making here is we have been programmed to believe that these shampoos, or this skin care line or this product for acne etc etc will take care of things. How many times have you tried something and it didn’t work or only works for a little while and then stops?  Or that we have to keep up with the Jones – who the hell are they anyways?  Or we need to fit in – according to who? Trading time for money and at the same time letting someone else decide your worth.  Or how it’s never new enough, big enough, fast enough,……..according to who????

I want to leave you with some questions to ponder……..

What is real health to you?

What is real wealth to you?

Are you feeling as good as you cold be?

Who’s programming have you boughten into –  the dr’s, tv commercials, ads, collective consciousness or yours?

What feeds your soul and are you doing it?

When was the last time you laughed and laughed and laughed?

When was the last time your went for a walk in nature?

How much clean water (no not bottled) are you drinking?

How much fresh or live foods are you eating?

When was the last time you meditated or were fully present?

Do you love what you do or spend most of your time at? (i.e. work)

Are your relationships healthy, fun, empowering?

Do you have a healthy relationship and sex life with your partner?

Is there open and honest communication in your life?

How much tv do you watch?

Do you spend our free time doing things you love to do?

Do you spend any time on self care?

Do you exercise or do any body movement?

Keep is simple – eat real foods ( not from a package) as much as possible, use green foods and Superfoods, use body products that are free of chemicals, toxins and artificial additives, think and feel amazing – no matter what is going on.  Yes we all have crap in our lives but it’s not what is going on around you it is what is going on inside of you that matters!!  Find ways that nurture you!

Weed and tend to that garden of weeds daily (mind bs like judgement, criticism especially towards self, dramas).

Instead focus on




Self Love

Being Present

Eating Clean


That is true beauty from the inside out!

Create an amazing day and a Life YOU love!!!

Purium Superfood Treats

Purium Superfood Treats

Purium Superfood Treats

Since I use an love Purium an  the Ignite Road Trip  is on and about half way through the tour with 100’s of people c coming out, I thought I would include this recipe!! If you are curious about Purium, why Purium, why green foods, why David Sandoval or Amy Venner then join 100’s of other people attending these events  (if it’s not already too late) and getting tapped in, tuned in and turned on to the wave of the future and the importance of Green food!!!

If you think you would like to try this recipe then feel  free to check out the Purium products ( Tropical oil aka Coconut Oil – probably the best I’ve tried, Activated Barley and the L.O.V Live Organic Vegan ), contact me with any questions or go straight to order these products and use the $50 Gift Card (code is eatinghealthy) or better yet you already have these products and can use them right away!!  Yes you could substitute them as well and I will give suggestions yet it just won’t be as tasty or probably nutritious – ok I may be a little biased here but I know what I know!! :)

Please note – most of Purium’s products are foods  and they are live, vegan, organic (certified whenever possible) AND NON-gmo.

Mash 1 Avocado well

Mix in

2 tbsp Coconut oil (Purium’s Tropical Oil)

4 tbsp raw Cacao Powder

4 tbsp raw organic Almond butter (try for raw if possible)

4 tbsp Activated Barley (Purium’s Activated Barley) the closet substitute I would use would be ground Hemp seed

6 tbsp L.O.V.E. (Purium’s L.O.V) another live, vegan protein source/powder or even ground Hemp

2 tsp Spirulina (Purium’s Spirulina)

Mix well together either by hand or in a food processor

Roll into balls or flatten them

Can roll that in shredded raw Coconut or raw Cacao Powder with some Monk fruti sugar (or other type if wanted any sugar at all – not needed)

Keep in fridge

Makes great snacks, treats and since it’s loaded with nutrition and the Activated Barley (slow burning germinated carb) you will have sustained energy!!  If all ingredients are raw, including the almond butter you have a tasty and live treat!

Enjoy and please feel free to share this!!

With much Gratitude
