Green Machine Macaroons

These protein and green rich treats are so delicious!  We’ve shared a few with our friends and received comments like: “wow, that’s like a densely nutritious breakfast in a bite!” and “Oh my goodness these are so good, I actually have goose pimples all the way down my arms and legs!” (She then proceeded to do a happy dance) : ) We like them so much that we’ve now started doubling the amounts in the recipe below in order to make them last through more of the week (we eat them every day right now). If you’re not going to […]

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 […]

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. *** Green […]

Warming and Raw Celery Sunflower Soup

My friend Laura concocted this soup and I find it’s a very warming and filling raw soup.  Plus it’s a great way to get more greens (always good!) without feeling like you’re eating a bunch of, well, greens. Here’s the very simple recipe… Blend the following items until smooth: 1/2 Cup Sunflower Seeds (if you don’t have a Vitamix that can handle pulverizing these, grind them in a food processor or coffee grinder first) 3 Cups Water 2 Tbsp Sun Dried Tomatoes or Tomato Concentrate Powder 2 Tbsp Fiesta Mole powder 1/4 tsp Curry powder 1/4 tsp Chipotle powder 4 […]

The Yummiest Kale Salad Ever

Kale is really good for you, but if you eat it straight it can taste really bitter.  You can disguise it in a green smoothie and you can make this super yummy kale salad.  WARNING: you must massage the olive oil, salt and lemon juice into the kale leaves and let them sit for at least 10 minutes for it to be yummy … don’t eat those kale leaves straight. ew. Ingredients: 1 large bunch of Kale chopped 1/4 Cup Lemon Juice (or juice one lemon, or Apple Cider Vinegar) 1/4 Cup Olive Oil (cold pressed) Sun Fire Salt to […]

Growing Sunflower Seed Greens Indoors

In the wintertime I start to get the gardening blues … I don’t get nearly the amount of time playing in the dirt that I crave.  That’s one more reason I love growing my own Sunflower Seed Greens in my kitchen window.  I get to play in the dirt and I have my own organically grown nutritious greens to add into salads and green smoothies at my whim. YAY! If you want to grow your own, here’s the low-down on how to do it … (this also works great with Buckwheat greens which are a little thinner stem and equally […]
