Wanted first to my friend Beatrice for her support and I’m happy to share an article that was published yesterday about your crazy yoga teacher, hope you like it!
Just to wish you all a happy healthy and happy new year, I’ll share some tips even if you are not fully raw vegan, you can add some simple changes in your eating habits to become healthier and vibrant.
Juice at least 5 times a week: Take some green juice on the mornings, start with a base of celery and cucumber and a green apple.
Eat more raw greens: Add to at least one of your meals a good portion of raw salad with lots of green leaf veggies like kale, spinach, water crest, lettuce. Then mix it with jicama, cucumbers, sprouts, raw sesame seeds. Marinate with lime or lemon juice with sea salt, a bit of cayenne pepper.
Explore alternative sweeteners: Use agave syrup, yuca or stevia, avoid/reduce products that contain high fructose corn syrup and sugar. Go to a healthy shop and look for some alternative healthy desserts.
Alternate for vegan source of protein on your meals: tempeh, tofu, quinoa (cooked or sprouted), hemp seeds
Add 1 lime to your water, this can help you hydrate your body more.
Reduce white processed flour products, to organic whole wheat products, to live sprouted breads!
Go to the library and explore raw vegan and vegan cooking books and have fun making your food!
Amazing food can taste better in good company! This is the first private home dinners. We had a delicious coleslaw, mock tuna pate, and the raw vegan supreme pizza. Then of course desserts! Pomegranate pie and chocolate raspberry cupcakes with pecan and medjol date crust, delicious! I’m ready for any catering!
Started making the crepes with coconut pulp and adding your favorite raw vegan sweetener.
Let it dehydrate for at least 1 hour, then added the spirals of a thick raw cacao paste
Continue dehydrating for around 12 hrs…?? Wrapping it up
I cut the Crepes into 4, and made a raw cacao pudding, pomegranate coulis and fresh blueberries and pomegranate kernels. Place ingredients into each crepe.
Then roll into cones and make beautiful art with the sauce
Lately, I’ve been reading again about super-foods, and adding them more into my recipes. In Mexico we have a traditional candy called “Alegrias” which means “happiness”. Eating healthy food can not only nourish our body but also our state of mind. For example raw cacao, is not only a super antioxidant but also contains tryptamine serotonin. Serotonin, is a substance that works as a neurotransmitter, and one of their functions involves mood regulation.
I dehydrated sprouted buckwheat with goji berries, chia seeds, agave syrup and of course raw cacao nibs. Great for snack or for breakfast cereal!
