Health Fair Recipes; Eating Healthy Food on the Go!!
So this past week, I presented at Norfolk Southern and New Life Baptist Church teaching employees and patrons alike the magnificence of eating raw whole foods. The following are the recipes for the event below. If you have any questions please feel free to leave in the comments section and I will return them ASAP!!
Soak 2 cups of Almonds in Water overnight. Place them in a sealed mason jar. I tend to make sure the water covers the nuts and then I drain the water in the morning.
2 cups dried cranberries, and figs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon Grade B Maple Syrup
Throw ALL ingredients into a blender or food processor. I prefer the Ninja. Pulse until evening mixed and you are done!!
You may also dehydrate your granola to make it more crisp for 12 hours or until desired consistency. If you do not own a dehydrator use your oven at 200 degrees witht he door open.
Apple and Almond Butter
2 cups Diced Apples
Almond Butter (you can make your own almond butter by soaking nuts and blending with seasame oil) We buy ours from a local health food store
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 teaspoon Grade B maple syrup
Place almond butter, cinnamon, vanilla, and syrup in a bowl and hand mix. If you would like you may dice the apples and hand mix the diced almonds into the bowl.
To make this a protein packed breakfast soak oat groats or steel cut oats in water overnight, drain and blend ingredients together to make a porridge.
Soak Walnuts in Water overnight in a mason jar
Add 2 tablespoons Grade B Maple Syrup
1 teaspoon Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Vanilla extract
Put all ingredients into a container and shake until walnuts are soaked with sweet topping.
You may dehydrate these as well if you like or serve right out of the container.
Food as Medicine
All of these recipes are packed with Omega Essential Fatty Acid's which are good for the brain, the hormones, and are natural antiinflammatories. All of the nuts and seeds in the recipes are also a solid complete cource of protein helping our bodies repair, and heal while generating muscle.
