Raw Banana Chocolate Macaroons

 

My recent love has been for raw Macaroons – any flavour!!  This recipe is quick, raw,(therefore vegan and gluten free) tasty and doesn’t need to be dehydrated.

Can be a great little snack or a desert!

Keep in an air tight container in the fridge and oh my great to snack on.

Macaroons

– 3 Banana’s well mashed in a mixing bowl

–  1/2 cup Coconut oil

–  1/2 cup Agave

–  11/2 tsp Vanila

–  3 tbsp Activated Barley (slow burning carb – Purium’s Activated Barley – if you don’t want to use it or have it just use Cocoa

       Powder instead)

–  3 tbsp raw Cocoa Powder

–  2 cups shredded Coconut flakes

–  pinch Himalayan Sea Salt

Add in Coconut oil, Agave and Vanilla into mashed Banana and mix well.  Add in the rest of ingredients and mix well together.

Once mixed well, spoon out (I used a melon ball scooper) onto wax paper in a container.  Keep in fridge.

Enjoy!

You can add a little more raw cocoa if you like.  I didn’t have any but ground up my raw cocoa nibs.

Fed UP

Fed UP

Just came across this trailer and had to watch the documentary – I hope you do too as people are waking up, want the truth and need solutions – that is why I love what I do and get to share it!!

Healthy eating should not be so hard or confusing.

That’s also why I love Superfoods!!

Fed Up!! for more info.

My blog really isn’t about all the crap that is in our foods, but it is good to know and be aware – we as consumers and eaters I believe do have that right and sometimes it takes big names to stand up and say NO More!!

I could go on…..but you probably get the idea and I hope the message.

WE each do and can make a difference – the best way is by learning, being aware AND choosing something different!!

Have been travelling and the rest stops / pit stops are full of junk / processed foods – another good thing about Purium is it’s easy to travel with and because the body is being fed (like I always say difference between eating and feeding the body) we eat less and brought our own healthy foods so being able to stop in the rest areas and enjoy some nature – life can be easy and beautiful!!

Take care of your body, health and create a beautiful day!!

There is a saying – ‘You Are What You Eat’.

Just by looking at this piece of Kiwi is it not screaming out fresh, alive, vibrancy, health, taste?

Take a second today and look at what you are deciding to put into YOUR body and what is it screaming out?

Is it the above or something else………..

You do have choice!

Met up with some friends today and headed out to the Non-Gmo and Gluten Free Expo in downtown Vancouver.

My eyes truly got opened up today holy crap!!  No wonder people truly are confused about healthy eating!!!

image non-gmo

It’s great to see people standing up and bringing out information on GMO’s and what they are about and products – whether packaged or fresh to the public.  If you don’t know much I highly recommend watching Genetic Roulette and GMO OMG – we truly need to be aware especially for our kids!!

You will see this sign on your food and it will appear on more foods in the future!

What really opened my eyes up today and actually sadden me for a bit until I realized wow I really am on a mission and love where I am at!!

image gluten freeThis Gluten free thing has gotten way out of hand, please don’t get me wrong – I know if someone has Celiac disease it is very serious.

I think though it’s the new way to sell package foods – it doesn’t matter that it has copious amounts of sugar, palm oil, canola oil to name just a few but so much is being labelled gluten free is kind of a joke.  I mean I know there is wheat in so many products that really shouldn’t be BUT they are processed products – I don’t care how much ‘natural’, ‘organic’ or other label they slap on it – it’s still processed even when labelled ‘Gluten Free’ and that is a good part of the problem.

Yes i know our crops are sprayed with Round Up – what you didn’t know that?? Watch the documentaries.  The best way to deal with that is eat way more whole foods, real foods and super foods from Mother Nature – notice there are no labels?  The more fresh and whole the better.

It’s been a busy start to the New Year for me but after today it has only shown me that I need to stand up and be louder – people are being fooled and their health is more important than that!!

Eat, Live & Be Real!!

10 Days New

Have YOU heard of the 10 Day Transformation ?

The first thing you need to know is this is your best natural way to jump start your weight loss, reset your metabolism, increase your energy, stop processed food addictions, end bad eating habits, reduce or eliminate any joint pain, and achieve better health!

DITCH THE DIETING – There is a SOLUTION TO THE FOOD POLLUTION!!! You will not find this Whole-Food, non-GMO, Organic, Super Food, Detox Cleansing, Transformation equal anywhere on the planet! This is NOT supplements, starvation, processed, yucky tasting ‘meal replacements’!!!!!  This is the 10 Day Transformation with Purium.  Purium is short for Pure and Premium.

It sounds like it’s almost a miracle pill or quick fix but it’s not!!

There is a BIG difference between eating and feeding the body!!!!  Just look around – our society is proving it!!

David Sandoval – author of the Green Foods Bible and Founder of Purium Health Foods is on a mission to help as many people as possible to better health – through Whole foods and Superfoods.  Real but convenient for the every day person, I mean lets face it life is busy and we often grab foods on the go that well aren’t very healthy.  What if they could be?  What if they could be so nutrient dense that your body starts waking up? Starts feeling better? Starts craving less processed or sugary or chemical laden foods?  What if you actually starting eating even less as your body is being fed properly?  What if you could stop counting calories? What if you could have more energy? What if you could have less digestion issues?  What if you could lower your food bill?  What if you could become more vibrant?  What if you could become more aware of when you eat?  What if you could wake up your taste buds for real foods?  What if you go let go of coffee or a caffeine addiction?  What if you could become more present?  What if you could start eating healthier? What if you could ditch the dieting?

What if………….

Yes the 10 Day Transformation can help with that BUT YOU have to be willing to do it, go through it and commit to it.

For some change can be hard, there might be 2 or 3 days that are uncomfortable or not fun – let’s face it – if you have been eating anything less than 100% organic, non-gmo real, whole foods you will have some crap in your body, and if you have been eating a bunch of sugar, caffeine and processed foods you will have a bunch of crap in your body.  Once you get through those few days (and they do pass fast believe it or not) the results and last few days are amazing.  You will feel great, you will eat less food, you will have more energy and more.

NO this is NOT hype, this is based on science, results and my personal results from so far doing 3 Transformations and embarking on my 4th?

Why you ask??

Good Question!!

Because I am human, I am not perfect, it was just the holidays, I ate some foods I probably shouldn’t have, I ate more cooked foods than normal and can feel it and I want to feel better – I want my 2015 to be the best year yet by looking and feeling great – the best I have looked and felt in a long time.  I am entering my 50th year – (ok I just admitted that to everyone and I realized I have lived half my life already) – and I am ready to take my health, body, life and living to another level and since I have already experienced the results from this I know it can get better.

Here is a preview after my last Transformation!!

Are YOU ready?? Ready to feel better, to feel great, to look great and to rock 2015??

Definition of insanity is to keep doing what you are doing yet expecting different results!!

Getting Thru the Holidays

Getting Thru the Holidays

Sometimes the holidays can tempt us, push us over or strengthen us.  I hope this helps you find a little more strength or determination not to go over board during the holidays so that come January it’s a breeze!!

It seems like we go overboard in many areas during the holidays and it doesn’t have to be that all or nothing thing.

Have fun as we get closer to the start of another year which is going to be amazing!!

Here’s to YOUR health!!

Shortbread

This recipe almost tastes like shortbread but it’s totally raw!  When you can create treats like this at Christmas time – you won’t miss the traditional cookies and snacks that are loaded with sugar!!!  I love shortbread cookies but really try not to eat them – now I can and so can You!!!

–  2 cups Almond Flour – throw the almonds in to the Vitamix in the flour container and blend until a fine powder – I did leave the skins on – you can remove them if you choose.

– 1/4 cup Coconut Oil

–  1 tbsp raw Honey

–  1 tsp Maca (Superfood – optional)

Blend all ingredients together.  It will almost look like thicker Almond butter

Place on wax paper and roll into a log like shape, wrap in the wax paper and store in fridge for 12 – 24 hours.

Take out and slice wedges – serve immediately otherwise they will soften for sure!!.

 

Enjoy

My 10 Day Transformation Cleanse!!!!

 My 10 Day Transformation Cleanse!!!!

This is the third 10 Day Transformation Cleanse I have done this year – I keep doing them due to the results I am getting – it just keeps getting better!!

The biggest side benefit is weight loss but that is not my main reason for doing this.  It really is to detox and cleanse AND feed my body at a deep level.

Each day between what we eat, our emotions, the air we breath we in take various toxins.

This cleanse also allowed me to really look at when and how much I was eating – as I keep saying there is a BIG difference between eating and feeding the body.  I realize how much I had been eating and really eating too much.  When I really am feeding the body, I eat less food – I paid attention to when I was actually hungry or when I was craving something to see exactly if it was a real hunger or a habit.  I also slowed down my eating so I could chew and enjoy my food instead of gulping it down, eating on the run or sitting in front of my computer.

It is also making me realize how important it is staying away from GMO foods – I can feel the difference.

But the increase in my energy levels – haven’t felt this good in a long time!!

Could your health, body or energy use a little improving??

What I like about this is it is easier to keep eating healthier – if each year you make a New Years Resolution to eat healthier, lose weight or get into better shape – then I highly recommend you having a look at the Purium lifestyle – only if you are serious about creating a healthier lifestyle and NEVER having to make those New Years Resolutions again!!

Raw, Live, Organic, NON-Gmo and now 17 products even Kosher!!!

Here’s to living a great, healthy lifestyle.

Hope to see you on the journey!!

Thanks for taking the time and please feel free to share this!!

My Cleanse

My Cleanse

I’ve been asked a few times over the last several days ‘Why do a cleanse in December like before the holidays?’  And my reply is ‘Why not?’  I think and now I know from how I am feeling – what a great time to do a cleanse!!  Yes it’s cold, yes holidays are coming, yes it’s a busy time – but really believe it or not those make good reasons!!

It’s cold – lots of warming spices, herbal teas, coconut oil to help ease that.  Plus it makes one go within a little and also become more aware of when one is eating – you know that grabbing for food even though we really aren’t hungry – what is it you are really hungry for?? Or is it boredom??

Yes the holidays are coming – for my American friends many just had some holidays, so what a great way to get back on the healthy eating or not to swing too far over in the area of over indulgence or unhealthy eating!

Yes it can be a busy time, but it also allows for one to begin to focus on what is really important – like being totally present and deciding what really needs to be done or could be let go of.

I just wanted to share my first few days of the 10 Day Transformational Cleanse with Purium.  We will be doing another one after the holidays – why not come and join 100’s of us as we create and transition into healthier eating patterns, more awareness and awesome support.  It’s unlike anything you have probably ever experienced before – trust me.  I have done many cleanses over the years and I never got results like I did with this one!!
