Raw Popcorn with Spirulina

 

Have you every thought of or eaten Raw Popcorn?

It’s probably not what you think!!

I was going through my kindle and ebooks that I have on line and realized I had not added many photos – WTH??  So I have been updating them and they are ready with many more photos that I had and never added in.  While I was going through many of the food photos I have I realized I still had recipes that I had not shared – this is one of them!  (btw if you would like a free copy of one of my recipe books please reach out to me right now)

RAw Popcorn

Anyone that knows me knows that with a good movie I love a bowl  – and I mean a BIG bowl of Popcorn!!

I am a popcorn pig – there I said it!! 🙂

Now a days the one thing that is really important is to make sure the popcorn is Non-Gmo!!

Now Raw Popcorn really isn’t the same as just Popcorn but it is good and if you are wanting to have more raw foods or love Cauliflower then you will love it – yes Cauliflower!!

This recipe is simple, easy, fast and tasty – no measuring required!!

Raw Popcorn

Raw Popcorn

1 head (or any amount) of Cauliflower cut up into any size you would like

You can add in some Coconut oil if you like but not necessary – if you do slightly warm it so that it is melted and the rest will stick better

Nutritional Yeast

Himalayan Salt

Spirulina (again optional)

any other tasty things you like on your popcorn

The easiest way I find of mixing it all together is to put it in a big freezer bag and shake it up together – or you can just put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix them that way – whatever works best for you.

That’s it – seriously!!

Grab a good movie – by the way do you know about Gaia (not an affiliate link)- they have some amazing Conscious or Health related movies, Documentaries and more – get ready to expand your consciousness, health and open your eyes to real truths!!

Jicama & Beet Salad

Jicama & Beet Salad

 

It’s been quite awhile since I have done a recipe so thought it might be fun to create something simple, yet fresh, raw and oh so tasty – Jicama & Beet Salad.

Since being down in Mexico I have been eating so well.  For me, I know the warmth, sunlight and fresh foods nurture my soul.  There is an abundance of fresh foods down here besides just Tacos and Quesadillas!! lol

www.jodiburke.com

Fresh Foods

There are also many markets that happen happen several times a week in different locations where an abundance of not only fresh / raw foods, but tasty (from vendors) and organic.  Usually more so where the gringos are yet so much great food.

I’ve been living off much Papaya, Pineapple, Figs, Avocados, Fresh Greens and yes I admit it fresh salsa and chips – locally made and non-gmo.

www.jodiburke.com

Fresh Organic Greens

I truly feel for many people that the environment makes a huge difference.  I know for myself while living in Vancouver and it was damp and raining a lot it was harder for me to eat as much raw foods as I do now – my body wanted and needed some cooked foods like Quinoa and roasted veggies.  Here I never think of that.  In sharing that – when you eat clean, your body will let you know what it truly wants – honour that.  There are too many people out there dictating that it has to be a certain way.  Yes eat healthy but listen to YOUR body!!

www.jodiburke.com

Vegan, Gluten Free, Organic Foods

Energy is everything – if you are hating what you are eating and eating because you think you should or have been told to – you are actually doing more damage!!

The one thing that makes me kind of sad down here is the NA influence like Coca Cola is everywhere, and some other nasty treats yet isn’t it everywhere now unfortunately??  Corporate greed is all I can say on that one as it is not food – only chemical concoctions labelled as food and creates havoc in the body!!

www.jodiburke.com

Lots of Raw Cacao – Good for opening Pineal Gland, Kombucha & this Raw Sauerkraut is sooo good – she makes amazing stuff!

Anyways, off my soap box and on the recipe – which is simple and leaving it up to you to get your creativity flowing a bit!!

Jicama, Beets & Greens – Colorful Mexico

I love Jicama and Beets especially together.

This is a Raw and Vegan recipe.

The selection of organic greens at the market is incredible – the one table sells about 8 different kinds and you get to mix and match and filler bag.

I chopped them all up to mouth size and grated up the Jicama (which isn’t as sturdy as Beets to do so) and also Beets.

I also did a second dish of just Jicama and Beets chopped up together. I also finely chopped up Tumeric thinking the color would be cool (orange with the white and red but as we know beets take over!)

www.jodiburke.com

Jicama, Beets, Tumeric with Basil & Dill Dressing

I have been on a Basil kick lately as I have been getting it fresh from the market and it is sooo tasty with garlic of course.

So it’s like a Pesto but no nuts – lots of Basil, Garlic, cold pressed Olive Oil, pinch of Himalayan Sea Salt, I also added in a mixture of Sea Veggies (dried that I brought from Canada) and Irish Moss – good for collagen (trying to add it in more in my way of eating) but those two are optional.

Of course since being here once I put it on the salad or just the Jicama & Beet salad I also squeeze fresh Lime juice!

In the Jicama and Beet Salad I added in a bunch of Dill too.  I let that one sit in the fridge for a couple of hours (ok while I went to the beach :)) to let the flavours marinate.  Now you can use any herbs and I always find that fresh is smooch tastier and better.

It was a tasty delight.

The salad feel free to sprinkle on some toasted Sunflower seeds or Pecans or even add in Avocado and a sprinkle of Nutritional Yeast.

Jicama doesn’t get used often enough and is very mild tasting so really takes on flavours of there ingredients.  Jicama is abundant down her in Mexico and has many vital nutrients and lots of fibre and probiotic role in the intestines.

I am so loving being in Mexico!!

Enjoy!!

Raw Lemon Macaroons

–  2 tbsp Coconut oil (Purium has an amazing hand poured organic Coconut oil)

–  juice of 1 Lemon – I even added a little bit of the pulp (optional)

Kale, Apple & Pecan Salad with Spirulina – Hemp Dressing

Kale, Apple & Pecan Salad with Spirulina – Hemp Dressing

Sometimes we can take the simplest foods, combine them and come up with not only a tasty snack or meal but also one that is totally nutrient dense. This is totally a raw and vegan dish incorporating superfoods. The more greens in your way of eating the better!!! The more real foods – which are live foods – which aren’t man made or have their own commercial – are what you want to eat more of. I don’t care what the label says – organic, natural, gluten free etc – they are usually processed and unless the label says raw – it’s dead foods.
And to be clear – not that I am against dead foods – but most of us need more live foods and superfoods in our way of eating!!
If you have to buy packaged foods – try and make sure you read the labels with ingredients – you should be able to say and or know what all the ingredients are and better if it’s dehydrated so it’s still live or raw – meaning it still has real nutritional value and most importantly enzymes which are needed by the body!!

www.jodiburke.com
Salad
I used a mixture of organic Greens and Kale or you can use just Kale – I have tried it both ways and both are tasty!!

– 1 small box mixed organic Greens

– 1 bunch Kale (chopped or torn into pieces) and mixed in with Greens or on it’s own

– 1 – 2 Apples cut up in bite chunks

– 1/2 cup roasted or dehydrated Pecans

2 ways of making roasted or dehydrated Pecans – I usually use my stove top as I wait to the last minute I will be honest. When I am organized and think ahead it’s not a problem 🙂 I put in some Tamari or Braggs (approx 3 tbsp) into a pan on med – low heat and mix in Pecans, sometimes I add in Agave (approx 2 tbsp) for a little sweeter version.

Stir well, and let sit, stirring often until the Tamrai or Braggs starts drying – take off heat and let cool. You can cook this faster by using higher heat but you will also destroy the enzymes. Once fully cool down, add to salad. That is all I put in the salad – but don’t be afraid to add in more if you like – some veggies or herbs or………you aren’t limited!!!

Spirulina Hemp Dressing

I always keep my salad dressings simple if I even use one – yet sometimes I like to shake things up. This one was one of those that even my daughter liked!! Yes it is Green!! lol

– 1/4 cup cold pressed Olive Oil

– 1/2 juice of Lemon

– 1/4 cup Hemp Seeds

– 1 tsp Spirulina (Purium’s organic, live & non-Gmo)

– 1 tbsp raw Apple Cider Vinegar

– 3 tbsp Agave

– 1 clove Garlic

– pinch Himalayan Sea Salt

Throw all in a Vitamix, blender or hand blender until mixed well.

Pour onto salad. Keep rest in fridge in a glass bottle or air tight container.

Raw Shortbread Cookies

Raw Shortbread Cookies

www.jodiburke.com

Shortbread

This recipe almost tastes like shortbread but it’s totally raw!  When you can create treats like this at Christmas time – you won’t miss the traditional cookies and snacks that are loaded with sugar!!!  I love shortbread cookies but really try not to eat them – now I can and so can You!!!

–  2 cups Almond Flour – throw the almonds in to the Vitamix in the flour container and blend until a fine powder – I did leave the skins on – you can remove them if you choose.

– 1/4 cup Coconut Oil

–  1 tbsp raw Honey

–  1 tsp Maca (Superfood – optional)

Blend all ingredients together.  It will almost look like thicker Almond butter

Place on wax paper and roll into a log like shape, wrap in the wax paper and store in fridge for 12 – 24 hours.

Take out and slice wedges – serve immediately otherwise they will soften for sure!!.

 

Enjoy

Truffles – Raw

 

This is one of two recipes I created – this one being easy, quick yet tasty – you wouldn’t know it’s raw!.  Again this recipe is a raw recipe so a great snack for kids or serve at your Christmas party / dinner – people won’t know!  Always use Raw nuts when preparing raw foods – they still have the nutritional value you are wanting in live foods.

 

 

–  2 cups Hazlenuts – ground to a powder (throw in your Vitamix flour container to do so, if you don’t have a Vitamix, your blender or even a coffee bean grinder will do but do so in small batches)

–  11/2 cups Madjool Dates (pits removed)

–  1 tsp Vanilla

–  pinch Himalayan Sea Salt

–  1/2 tsp Cinnamon

–  1/2 tsp Maca

1/2 tsp Cacao (optional – if you want more of a chocolatey flavor)

Once the Hazelnuts are ground into a flour, throw all ingredients into a processor and process until well mixed and when you take a little bit and roll into a little ball it does so easily – not falling apart or is too sticky.

At this point you can also roll the balls into Cacao or Coconut, a mixture of both or nothing!!

As you can see in the photo I did several varieties!

Enjoy and please feel free to leave a comment or share!

Thank you

RAw Chocolate Mousse Parfait

 

Finishing up another Transformation Cleanse and feeling fantastic – I wanted to stay with eating light, raw and healthy – especially since the weather is so hot – it’s easier to do this at this time of the year.

Another raw and vegan recipe that is easy to make, tasty and can be loaded with lots of nutrition making eating healthy much easier, so much so I had it for breakfast 🙂

 

Raw Chocolate Mousse Parfait

 

–  2 large Avocados

–  1/4 cup Raw Cacao Powder

–  1/4 cup Agave

–  1 tsp Vanilla

Optional ingredients (and only suggestions but these can really increase nutritional value since these foods are very nutrient dense and therefore will stay with you much longer as in not getting hungry soon after) 1 tsp Spirulina,  1 tbsp Rice Bran Solubles, 2 tbsp Hemp, 1 tbsp Maca – you could  use all of them together and it would still taste amazing and really be filling!!

 

Throw all ingredients into a processor and process until smooth – adjust for taste.

Choc Mousse-3

 

Nut Crunch

–  1 tbsp Coconut Oil

–  1/4 cup Coconut sugar

–  1 tbsp Hemp

–  1 tsp Chia seeds

–  2 tbsp chopped Walnuts

In a frying pan, on medium heat, melt the coconut oil then add in the coconut sugar and stir until it thickens.

Then add in the rest of the ingredients to well mixed and continue to stir for about a min.

Remove from heat and spread on a cookie sheet. I like to keep my in the fridge but you don’t have to, once cool break it up into smaller pieces.

(this can be eaten on it’s own, add into salads, as topping on deserts or mixed into this chocolate mousse parfait)

 

Take some of the Chocolate Mousse mixture and put into a glass or bowl, then some nut crunch, then some fruit and keep layering 2 or 3 times.

Serve immediately and enjoy!

This will make two good servings or 4 smaller ones.

Please feel free to share this and let me know if you made it how it went!

Raw Tacos

 

Love the summer months when everything is fresh and easy to eat more raw foods, more vegan foods and it tastes even better as most of it can be grown in your area – yummy!!

I love this recipe – and it can be changed up a few different ways, but here is one to get you started. This recipe is pretty quick and easy and of course tasty too – don’t be afraid to adjust amounts of things for your taste or add in some different herbs or spices.

 

Taco Filling

–    1 cup raw Walnuts

–    ½ cup fresh Parsley

–    1 tbsp Braggs or Tamari

–     1/2 cup fresh Cilantro (if you really don’t like Cilantro use Parsley)

–      juice of 1/2 Lemon

–       1 minced Garlic clove

 

www.jodiburke.com

Raw Tacos

 

Throw all ingredients into a food processor and process until desired consistency (you can leave it rather chunky or more smooth which just needs more processing – I usually go in the middle somewhere so there is a little bit of chunks of nut)

 

For these tacos I used the outer (as they are usually bigger) of Green Cabbage leaves

 

I chopped up some extra Cilantro, chopped Tomatoes, sliced Avocados, added a little Hot Sauce and topped with Alfalfa Sprouts and rolled it up.

Healthy eating doesn’t get much easier – enjoy!
