Hi Everyone! Today my friend Debbie is sharing what she ate with a few delicious recipes!
Breakfast: Sugar Free Superfood Ice cream
I used to be an ice cream guzzler! With this recipe I can now enjoy all the sweet, cold and creamy texture of ice cream without all the addicting sugar and dairy. Win-win!! You can find most of the powdered herbs in this recipe at http://www.laughingearth.me or from Jing Herbs.
2 Tbsp. coconut oil
1 1/2 droppers full of liquid stevia extract
2 Tbsp. cashew butter
2 Tbsp. hemp seeds
2 Tbsp. lucuma powder (opt)
2 Tbsp. raw chocolate powder (opt)
1 tsp. maca
1 tsp. reishi
1 tsp. astragalus
1 tsp. cistanche
1 tsp. pearl
1 tsp. he shou wu
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1-2 cups spring water
1 tray ice cubes
Add all ingredients except for ice into high speed blender. Blend until smooth. Add ice and blend until creamy, using plunger to create an even consistency. Serve with berries on top.
Lunch: Cucumber Soup
I love this soup! It is so simple to make and deeply cleansing for my kidneys, liver, lymph and skin.
2 organic or garden cucumbers
2 Tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
Fresh ground pepper
2 tsp. olive oil
4 tsp. pine nut mayonnaise
1 Tbsp. sprouts or micro greens
In high speed blender, process the cucumbers until smooth, adding a little spring water if necessary. Add lemon juice and season to taste with salt and pepper. Divide between two bowls. Drizzle 1 tsp. olive oil and 2 tsp. pine nut mayonnaise in each bowl then sprinkle with sprouts or micro greens. Top with freshly ground pepper. Serve with your favorite salad.
For Pine Nut Mayonnaise:
1/2 cup raw pine nuts, soaked 1/2 hour
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice
In high speed blender, combine the pine nuts, water, olive oil, and lemon juice and process until creamy. Season to taste with sea salt. This mixture will thicken as it sits; thin as needed with spring water. It can be stored in refrigerator for up to 5 days.
Dinner: Raw Nachos
These are super delicious, nourishing, and filling!! I like to make them for game nights and other family and friend get-togethers! Be sure to start making the corn chips the night before you desire to serve this delectable meal.
For Corn Chips:
3 cups frozen organic corn
1 cup chopped yellow or red bell pepper
1/2 small yellow onion
1/2 cup hemp seeds
3/4 cup chia seeds, ground
2 Tbsp. lime juice
1/2 tsp. chili powder
2 tsp. cumin
2 tsp. sea salt
In food processor, chop corn, bell pepper, and onion until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and process until just combined. Spread the dough thinly onto 3 (14 inch) Teflex lined dehydrator trays. Dehydrate at 115 degrees fahrenheit for 6-8 hours, or overnight. Flip the sheets over onto the tray and carefully peel away liner. Break or cut into pieces, place back in dehydrator for 4-6 hours, or until crisp. Store in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
For Basic Guacamole:
3 ripe avocados, pitted
2 Tbsp. lime juice
1 Lg. handful cilantro leaves, chopped
1/2 jalapeño pepper, minced
1/2 - 1 tsp. sea salt
In medium bowl, mash the avocado well with a fork. Add the cilantro, lime juice, jalapeño and salt. Stir well to combine. If not using immediately, cover surface of guacamole with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
For Basic Salsa:
2 cups organic tomatoes, cut into small dice
1/4 medium red onion, cut into small dice or 2 scallions, sliced thin
1 Tbsp. minced fresh cilantro
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
Fresh ground pepper
Mix all ingredients in medium bow. Let stand so juices release and flavors blend, 10-15 minutes.
For Tart Sour Cream:
1 1/2 cups cashes, soaked for at least 1/2 hour
1 Tbsp. miso
1 1/2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
4 Tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 cup water
1 tsp. sea salt
Blend all ingredients until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to use. It can be kept in refrigerator 2-3 days.
Top corn chips with guacamole, salsa, diced olives, and a drizzle of tart sour cream. Serve on a bed of greens.
