A creamy and deliciously flavorful raw soup by Lisa Viger of Raw on $10 a Day or Less. This recipe is hearty and filling and rich with immune-boosting lauric acid, as well as metabolism-boosting medium chain triglycerides, thanks to whole, raw coconut butter. It also packs a nice punch of heat thanks to red pepper flakes and cayenne - so you'll be warmed up from the inside out, despite the recipe being raw. Enjoy!
If you're into celebrating life's special events sans alcohol, this is the perfect recipe for you! You can of course use a home brewed kombucha for this recipe, or use your favorite brand from the health food store. If you can't find any kombucha where you live you can also use sparkling cider, iced tea, or anything else you fancy. Adding in a splash of apple cider vinegar would probably do wonders to make the flavour more complex too. Cheers! Recipe by Jenny Mustard.
These bars by Laura of Chronicles of Passion taste like an indulgent treat, but with no refined sugar, lots of antioxidant packed cacao, and the addition of mesquite, you can totally eat them without any worries! Cheers to that. If you're unfamiliar with mesquite, it is a sweet (yet low-glycemic) powder made from a legume, similar to carob, but with a mildly smokey and caramel-like flavor. The mesquite tree is native to arid regions of Southwestern USA and Mexico, where it grows wild and thrives with very little water. It is considered a very sustainable food to consume, and aside from its delicious flavor and natural sweetness, also offers plant based protein, and a good supply of trace minerals such as potassium, zinc, calcium and magnesium, as well as dietary fiber. Desserts with benefits - you can't beat that!
