Raw Spicy Seed Mix

 Raw Spicy Seed Mix

Spicey Nuts

This is an easy recipe – it just takes a little time.  These kinds of snacks are handy to have on hand when you are busy, rushed or didn’t get a chance to eat properly, are over hungry or need a little snack. This recipe is raw / vegan unless you use the oven then it may not be raw.  When buying nuts or seeds always make sure that they say ‘raw’ otherwise they will not be and most of the nutrition is not there any longer.

Pumpkin seeds are great for you especially when they are raw or sprouted.  I like making mine a little more spicy than this recipe but not everyone does so this is a good place to start.  If you like it spicy add more or double this recipe (not the seeds though) and if you don’t like it spicy omit the Cayenne and cut back on the jalapenos.

If you time it right, it’s easy to do – ie soak your nuts all day then dehydrate them through the night or vise versa.  Don’t be afraid to play with the spices or spice it up even more!

 

Raw Spicy See Mix 

-         11/2 cups raw Pumpkin seeds soaked (soak for 8-10 hrs for best results)

-         1 cup raw Sunflower seeds (soak for same amount of time)

-         juice of 2 Limes

-         ¾ tsp Himalaya Salt (adjust amount according to taste – if you like salty add a little more and vise versa)

-         1-2 Jalapenos (depending on how hot you like it)

-         1 cup fresh Cilantro

-         2 cloves Garlic minced

-         pinch Cayenne pepper (optional)

 

Once the nuts are done soaking, drain well.  Throw the rest of the ingredients in a processor or Vitamix and blend well. Mix drained, soaked nuts and ingredients together well, then spread on dehydrator sheet and let dehydrate overnight (approx 8 hours) or put in oven at the lowest temp if you don’t have a dehydrator – it may not stay raw but better than nothing.

Enjoy and please feel free to share this – it’s always greatly appreciated!!

Do You Really Know About GMO’S??

Do You Really Know About GMO’S??

Healthy Eating Made Easy

I will admit – I put my head in the same for quite awhile as life is busy and there is so much information out there on what to eat, not eat, what’s really healthy or natural and so on that it can be overwhelming – or so I thought.  Now GMO’s too? Seriously?

GMO’s have been around for about 30 years – so it’s nothing new BUT we do need to educate ourselves and if you take the time and watch the 17 minute trailer you will know why!!!

We are on a mission to educate and share – eating natural, real whole foods should be easy – we should  NOT be science experiments especially our kids – so I highly urge you to at least watch the trailer and decide for yourself!!

Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in choosing NON-Gmo foods and want more info!!

Have a great day, eat well and live healthy – in other words Create a Life YOU Love!!

Cherry Hazelnut Chocolate Delight

Cherry Hazelnut Chocolates

Raw Chocolate Delight-4One of my favorite shakes to make is a creamy cherry shake, so the other day I was quite interested in cherry and chocolate – who wouldn’t be?? :)

I also love chocolate and nuts when I eat chocolate and once you have good raw chocolate, it’s hard to go back to any other kind.  I thought I would create a cherry hazelnut chocolate – in theory it sounded good, but it didn’t stay solid enough to eat with you hands so then I thought lets mix it in with the Raw Chocolate Mouse and oh my – chocolate party was happening in my mouth let me tell you!!

Since it was all raw, vegan and loaded with superfoods, there was no guilt – I had it for breakfast – not something I do often but boy was it good!!

Enjoy!

 

Cherry Hazelnut Chocolates

-  3/4 cup Cacao Butter

-  ¼ cup Raw Cacao Powder

-  1 tbsp Coconut Oil

-  1 tsp Vanilla

Raw Chocolate Delight

Pour into a square glass baking dish.

This will need to be kept in the fridge as it will melt easily especially with the cheeries – juice.

Harder to eat on it’s own but amazing mixed into other things – tasty and pretty healthy – if you are going to eat chocolate – go for raw!!!

 

Enjoy and please feel free to share this!

Here’s to your health
