Raw Lime Superfood Cheesecakes

 

Deserts don’t have to be taboo, full of crap or uninteresting!

Raw Cheesecake tastes amazing, most people cannot tell that it’s raw. Raw Lime Cheesecake is not one of those that is too sweet tasting and by adding in some Superfoods of course healthy too yet undetectable!

Instead of a big cheesecake I decided to make cupcake style ones and threw in a little hemp too to make little healthier. Many raw food deserts are dense – but aren’t many good deserts (lol). It’s just nice knowing that you can have a sweet and it doesn’t have to be unhealthy, taste bad or have no or little nutritional value.

Limes

 

You could use lemon instead of lime – I just so love the smell of fresh limes!!

This recipes makes 1 full muffin tin tray of the cakes – I found it easy to put the paper in there (easier to remove). You could also just make one cheesecake if you desired!!

Limes

Crust

– 1 cup raw Almonds

– 1/4 cup Hemp seeds

– 1/2 cup Madjool dates (pits removed)

– 1 tsp Vanilla

– pinch Himalayan Sea Salt

Put the Almonds in a food processor (or Vitamix) and process till almost fine. Throw in the other ingredient and process until a ball forms or it’s sticky enough to stick together.

Press in the bottom of the paper cups (that are in the muffin tin tray) to the thickness you desire but make sure it’s pressed together firm – you don’t want it falling apart as you eat it.

Raw Lime Superfood Cheesecakes

Cheesecake

– 11/2 cup raw Cashews

Throw raw Cashews into the Vitamix (or blender) and process first on their own a bit, not necessary but I find it makes it smoother faster.

Add in

– 1/4 cup Hemp seeds

1/4 cup L.O.V. Plain (optional and it is a Purium product, if omitted add in a few more Cashews or Hemp – 1/8 cup approx)

– 3 tbsp cold pressed Coconut Oil

– 1/2 cup nut Mylk (Almond, Hemp, Cashew – your choice!)

– 1/2 cup fresh Lime juice

– 2 – 3 tbsp Honey or Agave (your choice, I used 2 tbsp but you may like it a tad sweeter with the lime juice)

Blend all ingredients together until smooth, pour into each cupcake / muffin tin or paper (or cheesecake pan). I tap the container on the counter a few times to get air bubbles out if there are any.

Put in fridge or freezer to chill. From the freezer it’s more like an ice cream – either way is good. I would eat these within 2 days.

Please feel free to share, contact me with any questions and of course enjoy.

Ditch the Dieting

Ditch the Dieting

Forever!

www.jodiburke.com

Just look at the word ‘die t’

Doesn’t that say a lot on it’s own?

How about healthy eating? What about feeding the body? Nourishing the body? Providing the body with the right nutrients so that it thrives, you thrive as through that you will feel and look fabulous.

There is a BIG difference between eating and feeding the body.

Nourishing foods, depleting foods or chemical concoctions labelled as foods.

We are part of a group Transformation starting next week (or the week after if one chooses) to nourish our bodies, feed our bodies and cells, detox from a little over indulgence during the holidays – yes even I did I will admit!! It was fun, tasty and oh so part of the holidays yet I am also learning that it’s not a big part of my life any more – for me it’s so not worth feeling crappy. The little bit I did do I can feel the difference in my body – I guess I am way more sensitive since I am so much cleaner in my way of living.

Here are some questions maybe to ponder as there is always room for more people who want to take their health and eating to a higher level AND Ditch the Dieting bs thing

Are you eating to live or living to eat?

Do you have any food addictions? ( coffee, caffeine type drinks, sugar, white starchy things, junk foods etc)

Do you eat / snack in the evenings?

Do you have any extra weighty would like to release?

Are you feeling tired, sluggish – or just not your best?

Is your eyes or skin kind of blah (in other words not vibrant)?

Do you have mental fog, can’t make decisions type of thinking?

Just kind of feel blah, heavy like or a little blue?

Have any aches or pains in the body for no apparent reason?

These are signs from the body saying ‘hey wake up, I need a little attention. detoxing or some changes”.

I am not a fan of diets or New Years Resolutions – what I am a fan of is making a fresh start, creating health and eating real foods – as close to nature as possible and eating consciously. No you don’t have to become vegan or raw but how often are you eating meat and do you know where it’s coming form or how the animals were treated? Things like that.

I am also a firm believer in eating healthy does not have to be boring, confusing or difficult.

One of the reason’s I share Superfoods and the Purium 10 Day Transformation as they are foods, real foods (also live, organic and non-gmo), people do get good – great results as they are feeding the body at a deep (cellular level) and it’s fun waking people up!!

People are still learning what real foods are and once you experience it – it’s hard to go back!!

If interested please contact me for more information.

We are starting a group cleanse Jan 4 (yet you can start any time) and we are joining in with Purium so many of us will be doing it at the same time – love the support AND David Sandoval himself will be doing daily support calls – the founder of the Transformation and Purium – now how cool is that?

You also have my support via text and phone / Skype – as much as I love the health benefit and feeling and looking the best I can – without comparison to anyone else or today’s so called models, I also love helping people break free from addictive food eating, processed food eating and emotional eating.

When we nourish our bodies with real, healthy foods and superfoods, it’s one of the most powerful ways of saying I love you (me / my body) – not from ego just self love. Self love is part and a big part of overcoming emotional eating.

I’ve been there, I know – reach out – I am here!

2016 is going to be a fantastic year – as I am choosing to make each moment, hour, day, week and month count.

Are you?

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!! 🙂

www.jodiburke.com

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)

www.jodiburke.com

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!!

Fed UP

Fed UP

Just came across this trailer and had to watch the documentary – I hope you do too as people are waking up, want the truth and need solutions – that is why I love what I do and get to share it!!

Healthy eating should not be so hard or confusing.

That’s also why I love Superfoods!!

Fed Up!! for more info.

My 10 Day Transformation Cleanse!!!!

 My 10 Day Transformation Cleanse!!!!

This is the third 10 Day Transformation Cleanse I have done this year – I keep doing them due to the results I am getting – it just keeps getting better!!

The biggest side benefit is weight loss but that is not my main reason for doing this.  It really is to detox and cleanse AND feed my body at a deep level.

Each day between what we eat, our emotions, the air we breath we in take various toxins.

This cleanse also allowed me to really look at when and how much I was eating – as I keep saying there is a BIG difference between eating and feeding the body.  I realize how much I had been eating and really eating too much.  When I really am feeding the body, I eat less food – I paid attention to when I was actually hungry or when I was craving something to see exactly if it was a real hunger or a habit.  I also slowed down my eating so I could chew and enjoy my food instead of gulping it down, eating on the run or sitting in front of my computer.

It is also making me realize how important it is staying away from GMO foods – I can feel the difference.

But the increase in my energy levels – haven’t felt this good in a long time!!

Could your health, body or energy use a little improving??

What I like about this is it is easier to keep eating healthier – if each year you make a New Years Resolution to eat healthier, lose weight or get into better shape – then I highly recommend you having a look at the Purium lifestyle – only if you are serious about creating a healthier lifestyle and NEVER having to make those New Years Resolutions again!!

Raw, Live, Organic, NON-Gmo and now 17 products even Kosher!!!

Here’s to living a great, healthy lifestyle.

Hope to see you on the journey!!

Thanks for taking the time and please feel free to share this!!

Greens – FREE Giveaway!!

Greens – FREE Giveaway

Famous saying goes: “We are what we eat”, or really what we can assimilate. The more you eat sugar, hydrogenated oils and processed foods as an example, the unhealthier your body becomes.   Even though you might not sense the negative changes immediately, you can be sure that your body will charge you later on for being neglectful.  Basically, key is with starting new, healthier ways of eating (not dieting) is to try to add more greens as much as possible.

Sometimes also changing little things that we eat daily or often can make a huge difference – ie if you drink diet pop, switch to just plain pop as the sweetener is sugar (most times) and not an artificial one, then maybe go to juice instead as it has less chemicals, then maybe add in more water (after all we are more than 70% water).  Instead of getting fires as a side order a salad – these seemingly little things can make a huge difference in your health and your weight.

Green vegetables and leafy greens are healthy but have you ever considered more Greens?

www.jodiburke.com Greens like in Kamut, Barley, Wheat Grass, Spirulina and Chlorella.  They are loaded with Chlorophyll and Enzymes which is what our modern day diets are void of mostly!!

Chlorophyll is actually a green pigment found in plants, which serves its purpose of turning the solar energy into useful nutrients which plants use for food. Those nutrients created by using the energy of sun are actually as useful for us, as well as for plants. Although humans can’t use photosynthesis to create food, as plants do, eating plants rich in chlorophyll can help us heal our body and enhance our health. The greener they are, the more chlorophyll it has contained, which is great – it’s more alive – just like you and the more alive foods you eat the more alive you will feel and become!!

Foods with high concentration of chlorophyll are dark green. Green foods are rich in minerals, calcium, magnesium, vitamins and many other things that the body needs for optimum health.

In our modern day society supplements are often pushed on us instead of real foods, superfoods or herbs that have been around for centuries.  The body knows how to digest and utilize these foods easily and properly.

The body can heal itself when given the right environment.

There is so much I could write here about Green foods and Superfoods but instead why not share the passion and knowledge of a great leader who has done much research and worked with 1000’s of people to show that using these foods does work from the results people are getting.

Tomato Salad with Spirulina Hemp Dressing

Tomato Salad with Spirulina Hemp Dressing

Always trying to find little ways of adding in nutrient dense foods or superfoods, since being a mom I have always done that over the years.  Knowing what I know now of course I would do things differently for my kids but we do the best we can with what we know.  I do remember my kids coming home from birthday parties asking why our juice tasted so different and that was because it was 3/4 water – I even knew then they had too much sugar even being real juice,I held out as long as possible before they figured it out!! lol

So now that my kids are teenagers and I can make something that has a fair amount of nutritional value AND they like it is pretty cool!!  I made this dressing and my daughter loved it so made it a couple of times, now I just make a bigger batch 🙂  Kes loves salad dressings even this one and it’s green!!

Tomato Salad

I just cut in half a bunch of baby tomatoes, an english cucumber, sliced small a green onion or two and chopped some parsley on top, but you could do basil or dill or any other herb.  I love adding fresh herbs to salads, they always add a nice flavor and are green!!

www.jodiburke.com

Spirulina Dressing

 

– 1/2 cup Olive oil (preferably and cold pressed is best)

– 2 cloves Garlic

– juice of 1 Lemon

– 1/4 cup Cider Vinegar or White Wine vinegar

– 2 tbsp Hemp shells (or called seeds or nuts)

– 1 tsp Himalayan Sea Salt

– a little black Pepper

– 1 tsp Spirulina (Purium Spirulina)

Throw all ingredients in a Vitamix or blender and blend until smooth.  Pour over salad and enjoy!!  Can easily double the recipe.
