A Raw Menu

We're experimenting with raw foods and decided to create a raw food menu to share with others. The food is very tasty and worth trying! It consisted of appetizers, a main course and double desserts.Below: Appetizers (Cucumber wraps with veggies), Main course (Gazpacho soup with corn, avocado and coconut cream) and Desserts (homemade cacao ice cream and a watermelon fruit bowl topped with fresh honey).

Coconut and Oats Cookies

For proper digestion, grains, nuts and seeds need to be pre-soaked, including flour. Coconut flour, however, does not need to be pre-soaked because it is neither a grain or nut. Over the weekend, we soaked some organic rolled oats and decided to incorporate them in our new- simple to make- coconut cookie recipe. We also made some more soy milk which we also added to the recipe. Our new soy milk with vanilla recipe is available…See More

Dry Kale With Red Onion and Spicy Peppers

Dehydrated kale is very healthy and makes a great snack! It tastes even better when you add other ingredients for more flavor and additional health benefits. Dehydrated foods are easy to digest and rich in vitamins, minerals and enzymes! Below: Oven dehydrated (at 130-140°) kale with red onion, cayenne pepper, sea salt and black pepper. Yummy! …See More

Homemade Soy Milk

A couple nights ago we soaked some soy beans in the fridge to make soy milk. In order to make soy milk, you have to soak the beans*, strain the beans, remove the hulls, add water, blend the beans, filter the mix and heat the liquid with a bit of salt and honey. Removing the hulls was quite the task but worth every second once we tried it as a Green Tea with Ginger Soy Latté! So tasty and sweet in flavor - because of the honey. We'll definitely be trying it again soon! The left over soy pulp is…See More

"You can always cut them. They will still get pickled/fermented. I just started fermenting/pickling foods a month ago and it's really easy and addictive. Take a look if you'd like:…"
