This recipe requires minimum 24 hours to prepare. It is ridiculously amazing. I can’t stop eating it!

Ingredients

2 Cups Cashews, Soaked

¼ Cup Pine Nuts

1 teaspoon Salt

2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice

1 Cup Water

5 Capsules Probiotic (or equaling 200 billion organisms)

Favorite Dried Herbs For Rolling

Procedures

Blend in high speed blender until creamy

Stir in probiotics by hand.

Pace in mason jar and rubber and cheesecloth over the top. Put in warm dark place for 10-24 hours, depending on how you like the taste. Placing it in the dehydrator At 90º will speed along the process.

Form into wheel and Place mixture in cheesecloth or nut milk bag and place in colander. Place a weighted plate on the top and let sit in the sink or on plate for 3-7 hours depending on how firm you wan the cheese.

Take out of cheesecloth and form a better wheel with hands. Cover with favorite herbs. I used Sage, Rosemary, Peppercorn, and Thyme.

Place in dehydrator to make more firm if desired. Making a bigger wheel will allow the outside to get firm but keeps the inside soft.

Thanksgiving.. The Best Time To Be Raw!

Holidays… Especially those revolved around food are my absolute favorite time of year! This is when I get to show off to all the SAD eaters how awesome it is to be raw and how pretty and appetizing raw dishes look! I know it is not that hard to make a dish look prettier than a dead carcass, but the level of amazing raw veggies can look on a plate is truly mind blowing. Everything is so bright and lively looking! And the best part is you are bright and lively looking when you are done eating instead of dead on the couch like a sack of potatoes! We don’t need to feel like crap or worry about the holidays! It’s a joyous time!!

This thanksgiving I am making the following:

-Italian style Bree with garden flax crackers
-stuffing
-mashed potatoes
-cranberry sauce
-chick-un Parm
-pumpkin spice roll

I went shopping today for all the ingredients and I will post up every recipe! All of these items I am making is enough to serve 5 or 6 and it cost me under 100$. I don’t want to hear ever that its too expensive to eat healthy! Everything was also purchased organic and local when possible!

Here is a recipe for super easy 3 minute cranberry sauce:

8 oz Raw Cranberries
15-20 softened Diglet Dates
Juice from half a lemon
1/2 tangerine
Pinch cinnamon
Pinch sea salt
Optional- diced jalapeño

Blend all ingredients except tangerine and jalapeño in food processor until desired consistency is reached. Add in diced tangerine and jalapeño and mix by hand. Let sit in refrigerator over night to let the tastes blend together. Done!

I will keep posting as I am making!

Here is a great butter alternative that i whipped up this morning to go with my bread i made! Its creamy and salty and did the trick! It is high in really good fats too so it is great to have in the morning to get that brain pumping and ready for the day!

Ingredients

-1 tsp real sea salt

-1 tbs hemp seeds

Put all ingredients in a mortar and pestle and grind down the seeds and mix well. Put in refrigerator until hard, or if its cool in your home leave on the counter for a more creamy texture!

 

Gourds and Bombillas April 23, 2012

Many of you have probably seen these at some point, whether it be in a health store or someone drinking out of one. Usually these gourds are filled with yerba mate tea leaves, and one can simply stick the bombilla (straw made from bamboo or stainless steel) and drink. Mate is a great coffee alternative, as the stimulation does not affect the nervous system. You will get a mineral filled energy “buzz” but will not have a crash or a gittery feeling. Drinking from the bombilla directly allows for ultimate mineral absorption.

imageI do not just limit my gourd use to mate. Since I am very strong on herbal medicine, I will fill my gourd with many different herbal formulations and drink it in the same manor. It is a great way to drink your herbs and get everything they have to offer!!

It is a rather inexpensive way to drink your teas and get the full benefits!

Here are some links where I buy mine. I prefer the stainless steel straws over the bamboo, as they last much longer and tend to not get clogged.

Bombilla

Gourd

Yerba Mate

Here is a tasty high energy tea that you can try for yourself!

-4 tablespoons unsmoked mate

-1 tablespoon crushed cacao nibs

-1 tablespoon goji berries

-Optional: Pinch of fresh vanilla powder

I guarantee you will love drinking from a gourd!

 

Raw Almond Butter March 20, 2012

Almond butter is incredibly easy to make and tastes way better than store bought! I use my vitamix to make it, but you can also use a food processor!

What you will need:
-at least 3 cups of raw almonds (sprouted and dehydrated)
-cinnamon to taste
-salt to taste (if you sprout in sea salt water like me you will need less)

Put the dry almonds in the vitamix or food processor on highest setting. It is important when using the vitamix that you do not let the blade free spin so be sure to use the jabber to push down the almonds as they grind. The almonds will start to heat in both machines from friction so be sure to give frequent breaks for cooling. When almonds begin to get pastey add in cinnamon and salt. Continue to grind until butter is formed. It will take up to a total of 15 minutes of blend time before butter is formed. Store in a glass jar in the refrigerator. You will never buy another jar at the store again!

Neem-Lo-Sporin February 2, 2012

So my parrot likes to hunt feet. A few days ago he was hiding in my herb cabinet, and when i went to put my jar away he decided to take a HUGE chunk of my toe out. I was going to share a picture, but i thought i’d spare you the gruesome photos.  It was taking a very long time to heal, as there is a pretty deep section of skin missing. I decided to make my own healing salve with ingredients i have home. I can not believe the results! My skin is quickly growing back and is healing great! I thought I would share the recipe with you!

 

-1 Small Aloe Leaf Fillet

-1/2 tbs Bentonite Clay

-1 quirt neem oil

 

Mash together all ingredients in your mortar and pestle and add to open wound. Cover with a band aid. Wash off before bed and allow to air out, depending on how deep the wound is.

The clay will draw out all impurities, the aloe will help rejuvenate and replenish, and the neem will kill off the bad bacteria!

We all love frappuccinos, but let me insure you that your body hates them! I can absolutely promise that this is one you AND your body will love!

 

Ingredients:

-2 cups ice

-1 cup soaked cashews

-1 tbsp cacao powder

-1 tsp maca

-1/2 scoop vanilla sun warrior protein 

-1/2 tsp mesquite (optional, add for caramel flavor)

-5 pitted dates (optional, add for sweetness)

-1 dash cinnamon

-1 cup liquid (almond milk/cold tea/water)

 

Add all ingredients to blender and enjoy!

Some great things to add to make this even better!

- 2 tbs Cacao Nibs, which will hand a nice texture

- 1 tbs Chia seeds, which will add thickness and energy

- add some matcha if you really want the caffeine— you will get a ton of energy without it!

- use yerba mate as a base instead of water, to add a bigger boost!

- not adding dates will keep this sugar free and bitter, just like coffee!
