Chia Porridge

Breakfast of Champions! : ) This is a superfood upgrade for breakfast cereals and oatmeal, and it’s easily customizeable! To make Chia Porridge, simply combine: 3.5 Cups liquid (we prefer coconut milk) 1/2 Cup Chia Seeds Stir well and let sit overnight in the fridge.  If you need it in a hurry, stir regularly for about 15-30 minutes (the longer it sits, the more solid a gel you will have). Like oatmeal, this tastes best with some seasoning and fruit added to it, like cinnamon, nutmeg a pinch of salt and banana or apple. If you prefer a crunchy cereal, […]

Superfood Bowls 5

I’ve got a new favorite creation on my raw superfood journey that cuts down kitchen time, meets my body’s “NOW” nutrition requirements, and tastes great every time. I think these Superfood Bowls will also empower you to find your own creative nature in your kitchen, as well as be even more in tune with your body’s wisdom. The basics of Superfood Bowls are simple: 1. Get a bowl 2. Add some dry superfoods 3. Add some wet superfoods (fats and/or sweetener) 4. Stir and eat on the spot It might seem like cereal to you, or as my raw friend […]

Chia Gel

Chia seeds can soak up to 12 times their weight in water, so eating them dry can potentially leave you dehydrated and with chia seeds stuck in your teeth. A better option is to create a chia gel that you can then add to smoothies, salad dressings, soups, dips, cereals, puddings or any food you desire to upgrade with added nutrition. The basic formula is 1/3 Cup Chia Seeds to 2 Cups Water (or other liquid). Stir the chia seeds into the liquid well, stir again in about 10 minutes. The longer the chia seeds sit in the liquid, the […]

Green Gobblers 3

My good friend Courtney came up with this recipe she calls snickerdoodles and while I love, Love, LOVE these snacks, the name “snickerdoodle” just doesn’t work for me.  I mean, they’re green.  Snickerdoodle cookies aren’t green. So, since the name keeps throwing me off I’ve decided to call them Green Gobblers … they are green and I can just gobble them all up (even though they are green). Try out this recipe and I think you’ll see what I mean – the sweet taste packed full of protein and green goodness will have you coming back for more. *** 2/3 […]

Energy Bars (or Melissa’s Happy Bars) 1

Ohboyohboyohboyohboyohboyohboyohboyohboyohboyohboy!  I’ve got a new favorite superfood staple food.  It doesn’t replace my love for Chocolate Bliss, but it sure does complement it well.  These energy bars are great when  you: 1.  Want to chew something instead of drink 2.  Are traveling and can’t take liquids or keep your Bliss cold (like on airplanes) 3.  Want some extra energy that’s sustainable and naturally derived from your extreme nourishment 4. Want a flavor sensation that is not quite savory, but not overly sweet either And, I always feel really really happy when I eat them.  It’s kind of like a giddy […]

Go Go Goji Lemonade

This lemonade is super satisfying, perhaps because it is very hydrating.  It’s thicker and orangier than lemonade, and its delightful! ½ Cup lemon juice (Fresh squeezed from 3 lemons or try Santa Cruz Organic Lemon Juice. You might also try this with limes or grapefruit.) 3 Tbsp Goji Berries ½ tsp Sun Fire Salt 1 Tbsp Tocotrienols 6 Tbsp Vanilla Agave Nectar 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil Add all ingredients to a Vita-Mix or other high-powered blender, then fill the blender to the 6 cup mark with pure water. Blend on high until smooth, pour into a container, and chill. The […]

Fiesta Mole Soup & Dip! 1

It’s raining here today.  It’s almost like Fall arrived in a full-on run … no sauntering in this year. This cooler weather makes me especially appreciative of the Fiesta Mole Superfood mix.  The garlic, spicy, tomato blend is a nice contrast to the sweetness of Chocolate Bliss and even when it’s served as a cold soup it warms me up all over. Frankly, I tend to sprinkle the dry Fiesta Mole mix on everything I can think of.  Usually that’s on top of lettuce, avocados, and baked potatoes (yes I eat cooked food!). A friend of mine says she sprinkles […]
