Raw oatmeal-raisin-apple cookies

Posted: November 22nd, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Cookies, Food, Raw foods, Recipes | No Comments »

Equipment needed…

  • measuring cups & spoons
  • blender
  • dehydrator & teflex sheets
  • bowl
  • large spoon
  • ice cream scoop (optional)

I use all organic ingredients…

2 large Fuji apples
1/2 cup water
2 or more teaspoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon honey (optional)
4 dates
pinch of Celtic salt

Blend until liquified.
Pour mix into bowl and add:

1.5 cups soaked, drained walnuts
1.5 cups raisins
1.5 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup finely chopped Fuji apple
.5 cup ground flax seeds

Mix all together.
Scoop onto non-stick dehydrator sheets and shape into lumpy cookies.

Dehydrate at 115 or lower for as long as it takes to get cookies to the dryness
you prefer. I usually dehydrate them for 8 to 12 hours.

I hope you will enjoy these cookies. They are wonderfully chewy. And the little apple chips give them a special ‘hit’ of sweetness.


Staying on good food

How do you do it? my friends ask. How do you avoid sugar?

My secret is to eat as much fresh, ripe, raw, organic fruit in the morning as I want, until my sweet tooth is fully satisfied, so I won’t fall prey to craving sweets. If I do later “need” a sweet, I will make a mixture of seeds or nuts or seed or nut butter plus dates, raw organic cacao or vanilla or cinnamon… or I might simply have an apple.

The important thing, I think, is to make sure your body has the nutrients it needs, so I avoid anything devoid of nutrients: white flour, white sugar, white salt.

Green smoothies are a wonderful way to satisfy the sweet tooth, get digestive enzymes and also feed your body what it needs — fresh, raw fruit and lots of vital nutrients from greens. Just whiz fruit, water, kale, parsley or spinach plus maybe a little fresh ginger. Your delicious drink tastes like fruit but you have just ingested a healthy dose of greens.

I also make sure to eat a huge, wonderful salad daily with lots of dark colors: green, red, blue, yellow. Lately I’ve been making sure I have something fermented in my salad too… either seed cheese or homemade sauerkraut, to provide extra digestive enzymes.

When I feel a need for something more complicated, I make raw bread from buckwheat, flax seeds, carrot & other veggies plus herbs & fennel seed. I form it into little rounds about 5 or 6″ across. Then, anything I put on it — olives, tomato, pesto, seed cheese — tastes good enough to me, that I call it pizza!

A guest once said that my raw pizza was the best pizza she had ever eaten!

Eat this daily and your health will soar!

The main miracle foods are garlic, lemon juice, olive oil (extra virgin), celtic salt and cayenne. Few Americans eat them on a daily basis, but it’s simple enough to do. I put them in my very delicious salad every day… so can you! Here’s how…

Greens… Primates eat half fruit, half greens. Few Americans eat enough greens… dark, leafy greens such as kale, chard, spinach and parsley. Herbs such as thyme, oregano, green onion or garlic tops.

Easy to clean… Fill a bowl with clean water and swish … Read more…


Love cheese – but can’t digest it?

Posted: July 31st, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Cheese, Food, Recipes | No Comments »

I have been allergic to milk my entire life, but since the doctor discouraged my mother from breastfeeding and I was born before baby formula was invented, they had no idea what else to do but to feed me milk. And so my health suffered until I was an adult and finally realized I was allergic — and therefore addicted — to milk.

There are valuable digestive enzymes in cultured products, so it was a wonderful day in my life when I learned an easy way to make raw, dairy-free sunflower seed cheese. This is what I do… … Read more…
