Peanut Butter Bars - the healthy version

If you like Reese’s chocolate peanut butter cups as much as I do, then I have good news for you: here is a super quick and healthy alternative that tastes at least as good without the harmful ingredients. Ingredients:  for the peanut butter base: 1 cup graham cracker crumbs (I used rye vita crisp bread – 100 % rye) 8 Tablespoons butter or organic coconut oil – melted (I used coconut oil) 1 cup icing sugar (I used half organic coconut blossom sugar and half erythritol) 1 […] Continue reading →

seed-crackers

These crackers are dead easy to prepare without any equipment and are a great stand-by for those snack attacks. They are delicious on their own, but also go with dips, humus, vegan cheeses,  as an accompaniment to soups or salads, cheeses and even with sweet toppings. They are nutrient dense, providing ample essential fatty acids and are very satisfying – so much better and healthier than plain old potato crisps. Ingredients 200 g sunflower seeds 60 g flax seeds (coarsely crushed in […] Continue reading →

I discovered this recipe  in a health magazine. It took me all of 10 minutes to make, and after 2 hours in the freezer, the chocolates were ready to eat, although it was just as delicious to lick the bowl! Double (or triple) the quantity to have extra. You need to serve and eat them straight from the freezer, as they go soft quickly when left outside. This recipes makes about 12 – 14 individual chocolates. Ingredients  2 Tablespoons of raw cacao powder 2 Tablespoons Tahini (or any […] Continue reading →

WALNUT-RAW CHOCH TREATS

This is a quick, delicious alternative to just raw chocolates – great if you are pushed for time and need something in a hurry. You can use a food processor, but a power blender will do the job very well. Walnuts are a true super food (brain food, cancer fighting properties, contain rare anti-oxidants, healthy fats, B vitamins, improve reproductive health in men, improve metabolic parameters in people with type 2 diabetes, good for weight control …. to name just a few of the […] Continue reading →

I recently watched a video on how David Wolfe made a version of this super healthy, very tasty salad dressing, which is especially good for a youthful looking skin, but naturally has loads of other health benefits as well. It beats any commercial salad dressing, which is usually full of bad oils and other additives that are not meant to pass our lips, never mind find their way into our bodies. You can make a bigger batch and keep it in the fridge for a day or two or freeze in small […] Continue reading →

This recipe is really easy and tastes so good, that I could  eat a whole bunch of spinach, kale or Swiss chard in this form all at once. You can buy this as a ready made snack in some health shops or vegan restaurants, however it is expensive. Making it yourself is simple and much more economical. If you grow your own spinach as well, then this is an added bonus. And of course living in Johannesburg, South Africa, we get so much sunshine, that you don’t even need a dehydrator – […] Continue reading →

This is a true energy saver, if you use the sun (use  dehydrator or low – less than 50 degrees – oven on sunless days). The mushrooms become extremely tasty and can be eaten as is, mixed into salads, as a side dish, as part of fillings for wraps or as pizza toppings or in sandwiches, mixed into sprouted, cooked brown basmati rice, pasta … you get the gist,  your imagination is the limit. You can, of course, also ring the changes with different spices and herbs, eg: […] Continue reading →

I just got this recipe from my friend Marion and made it today for supper and served it with a slice of gluten free foccaccia with herbs and olives on the side – it is delicious and so quick and easy to prepare. Freeze peeled, cut up mangoes when in season and cheap, then you can prepare this healthy ‘fast food’ when short of time any time during the year. Ingredients: 1 large mango, peeled, stone removed 1/2 onion 1 cup iced , filtered water (or more, depending on how […] Continue reading →
