Vegan Cashew Cream Cheeze

One of the best things about Recipe Friday is that we force ourselves to try new recipes. We found that a good way to stick to a plant-based diet is to constantly keep it new and interesting. It’s so easy to fall into eating the same things over and over and that quickly gets stale and boring. This week, we made a Vegan Cashew Cream Cheeze from healthyblenderrecipes.com. It tasted so amazing and works so well as an all purpose spread, dip, filler! It was almost better than hummus because of it’s cheezy nutty flavor! We made like cucumber “sushi” rolls with the Cashew Cream Cheeze and the combination was similar to a ‘caprese’ type appetizer. Yum! This cheezy sauce is: Dairy-free & vegan Gluten-free & paleo-friendly Healthy Versatile (you can add chopped veggies, like sweet peppers, and use it as a vegetable dip) Easy to make (you just need a blender!)   Vegan Cashew Cream Cheeze INGREDIENTS 2 cups raw unsalted cashew nuts soaked ½ cup nutritional yeast ¼ cup filtered water, plus more as needed ¼ cup lemon juice, plus more to taste 1 teaspoon Celtic sea salt, plus more to taste ½ teaspoon onion powder, plus more to taste […]

Fermented Ginger Carrots

Happy Recipe Friday! Welcome to our first foray into making fermented foods. It’s no secret that we love fermentation. The Willow Enzyme Bath is created with fermented enzymes and we accompany the treatment with a fermented enzyme drink that boosts probiotic activity. However, until now, we haven’t embarked on making any fermented foods. Since Recipe Friday is a day where we’ve dedicated to making healthy, vegan recipes, we decided to give it a try. This recipe uses lacto-fermentation, which is essentially creating brine (salt water solution) that discourages the growth of harmful bacteria. It’s important to make sure that the fermenting carrots are completely submerged under the brine to give it the right anaerobic conditions. Spores, yeast and mold cannot survive in properly fermented foods. Carrots are known for their high vitamin A content and ginger helps to improve digestion and reduce inflammation. When these foods are fermented, their health benefits are boosted by the probiotics created making the vitamins and minerals more absorbable by your body.   Fermented Ginger Carrots INGREDIENTS 4 c thinly sliced or grated carrots 3 tsp sea salt 2 tsp grated fresh ginger METHOD The fermenting time of this recipe is approximately 1 week. Place the carrots and […]

Aloe-Lime Coconut Yogurt

Aloe Vera is well known for its topical application, but can you eat Aloe? YES! Most often it’s blended into smoothies and juices, but there’s so much more this medicinal plant can offer. The edible and superfood part of the Aloe Vera plant is the solid gel-like substance, almost like a tapioca and that gave us the idea of making a dessert topping with the Aloe plant.   Strengthens the Immune System Aloe vera gel contains vitamins A, C, E, B-12 and folate.It has an array of essential minerals, including calcium, potassium, magnesium, chromium, sodium, copper, zinc and selenium. It also contains 20 amino acids, including 7 out of the 8 essential ones.   Anti-inflammatory Aloe contains several anti-inflammatory compounds, including salicylic acid, C-glucosyl chromone and an enzyme called bradykinase.  Aloe is also able to reduce the production of acid in the body, which also prevents inflammation.   Diabetes Prevention and Treatment Phytosterols, found in aloe vera gel help to enhance insulin sensitivity, which reduces blood glucose and triglycerides levels.   Note: There are many species of Aloe, they are not all edible and they can be difficult to identify. We don’t recommend that you use your house plant in any recipes. […]

Avocado Sandwiches – Lunch Ideas

  Today we aren’t really sharing a specific recipe, but we are pointing out that eating vegan can be really easy and still healthy. There are days where you want to create gourmet meals and other days where you just want something easy to throw together. Avocado sandwiches, fit the latter. Besides acting as a natural moisturizer, avocados are associated with anti-aging due to xanthophyll, an antioxidant and carotenoid with DNA damage protection. Avocados are also a primary source of vitamin E, which stimulates collagen production and benefits skin elasticity. Despite our diligence in applying sunscreen during the sunny summer months, it is about time to start thinking about repairing our skin and prepping it for the colder, drier season we are about to embark upon.   8 REASONS TO EAT MORE AVOCADOS High in omega-3. Avocados are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and while they also contain omega-6 fats. Rich in oleic acid. This is another fatty acid:omega-9 that is good for memory and brain activity. Part of the Environmental Working Group or EWG “Clean Fifteen.” Only 1 percent of avocados tested had any pesticide residue, which means you can purchase avocados without fear of pesticide residue on your food.
