Pickled Foods

Raw pickling is an excellent way of getting more fermented, probiotic foods into your diet. Cucumbers are the most obvious food to pickle (the original pickle!), but increasing the variety of foods you pickle can keep your tastebuds satisfied year-round.  A few variations we particularly enjoy are Kohlrabi Beets Ginger When you pickle, you can either go for a simple salt-brine, or a tangy-sweet vinegar brine.  Here are some basics with links to additional recipes …

Dandelion Vinegar

Spring is time for dandelions and liver support!  If your yard is organic (or you know of one that is), and you see dandelions blooming, pluck those little flower heads! The yellow flowers are high in lecithin and support liver health. I feel like a honeybee as I buzz over my yard and collect the dandelion flowers. Once you’ve got a bunch, fill a glass mason jar (that has a lid) with the flowers.  Really pack them in there. Pour Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) over the top until all the flowers are covered. Cover with a lid (ideally a plastic […]

Kale Chips

Kale Chips are such a tasty way of satisfying cravings for salty, savory, crunch, while still getting a healthy dose of greens.  Buying them from the store is much more costly than making them at home … and making them yourself is easy. Here’s a basic recipe to get you started … adjust the seasonings to your preferences of the moment.   Start with a head of Curly Leaf Kale. Lacinto Kale – the flat leaf kale also called “Dinosaur Kale” – will also work for this, but your chips will be very flat and not as crispy in texture. […]

Fiesta Mole Pumpkin Seeds

Superfood Slaw

We welcome fall with thoughts of leaves turning blazing orange and deep red.  The falling leaves in my neighborhood inspired me to incorporate these autumnal colors in a raw food recipe. Butternut squash is high in fiber, and an excellent choice for blood sugar regulation.  Beets are high in many vitamins and minerals, and they are a wonderful tonic for the liver. I have decided to use Marine Phytoplankton as the super food ingredient in this recipe.  Each bottle of Oceans Alive contains 10 trillion cells of Marine Phytoplankton that are nine times smaller than a red blood cell and […]

Buckwheat Bars 1

My friend Nandish made these buckwheat granola bars off of someone else’s recipe (thank you smallfootprintfamily), so really they’ve been upgraded twice. You could make these as a raw granola cereal, but frankly I prefer to have a portable bar that travels well and is packed full of nutrients.  This is a very flexible recipe for what nuts, seeds, fruit, berries, herbs, spices and superfood powders you happen to have on hand.  As long as you have some buckwheat groats as a base, it’ll turn out nice and crunchy.  Here are a couple of variations on the recipe to get […]

Sprouted Lentil Falafel

Falafel is a traditional middle eastern food that is typically made from garbanzo beans and fried.  It’s often served in a pita bread or on a salad with a tzatziki sauce (cucumber-yogurt sauce).  This raw version I created completely satisfies my greek food cravings and I can taste the aliveness in every bite. Falafel Patties 1/2 Medium Onion (about 1 cup once shredded in the food processor) 2-4 Carrots (about 1 cup once shredded in the food processor) 1 Garlic clove 1 Cup Sprouted Lentils (1/2 Cup dry lentils) 1 Cup Water 1/2 Cup Ground Flax Seeds 1/4-1/2 of an […]

How To Make Raw Sauerkraut 2

Making your own sauerkraut is one of the easiest things to do and much more economical than buying Bubbie’s sauerkraut (my favorite) from the store. Sauerkraut is an excellent source for probiotics and one of my go-to foods when I crave cheese.  It’s tangy like cheese, more probiotic than cheese, and tastes particularly excellent on salads and mixed with avocados. Here’s the process I use to make my own which I got from this delightful video by Lauren Amerson (ShaktiGoddess1 on youtube): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6gObQR5Vm4M
