This recipe is from Sue Gregg. I'm learning a little about soaking grains and beans to bring out their nutritionally quality and to cut the phytates. You may cut the recipe in half if you don't have a large enough blender (like a Vitamix). See add-ins in the directions. I used olive oil for the coconut and kefir and it worked fine.
These are so good, my husband literally inhales them. He gets a tin of them for Christmas each year and they go fast! Just a note: This is for peanut butter lovers and those who like very sweet stuff. I can only handle a couple of these :) (and normally I can handle pretty sweet desserts, but usu. recipes with regular chocolate.)
This is our favorite way to make applesauce. It comes from the book, "Baby Let's Eat" for heatlthy cooking for both baby and family. The pears give it a bit of a crunch, even though we don't leave the chunks. We puree it smooth. And there's no sugar in this recipe. We usu. leave out the mace and it tastes fine.
Got this from a nutritionist friend of mine. It has flax seed, and walnuts are good for you - the only nut that has omega 3's. Sometimes I'll also add a cup of sunflower seeds. My daughter loves it and a 8 yo friend was over and tried it. His comment: "This is tasty!" I gave the recipe to his mom and she made it for a school function and it was a hit! I use rolled oats, but you could use quick oats too. I use this on top of fruit and yogurt for a healthy breakfast.
I know, I know! There are 183 hummus recipes! But none have peanut butter in them. I got this from a nutritionist who's (now grown) children would only eat hummus if she used peanut butter instead of tahini. I like it this way rather than the tahini way. Try it. You'll be pleasantly surprised! I put the olive oil right in the blender instead of drizzling on afterwards. Then I eat it with Kashi TLC crackers right out of the container.
This tea is made from fresh herbs and is for adults only. I will submit a similar one suitable for children. I haven't made it bcz I make the other one, but I mix the herbs and boil 2 quarts worth at a time, strain, add honey, cool and keep it in the fridge for cold tea. Servings are based on how much you decide to make.
This blend of fresh herbs is safe for children and is calcium-rich. I mix it with my 3 yo's juice and he hasn't noticed. I make 2 quarts, add honey and cool for ice tea. Serving size depends on how much you decide to make.
Smooth your ruffled feathers! If you're taking MAO inhibitors, leave out the St. John's Wort. The servings depend on how much you decide to make. Bcz of the chamomile, keep dry mix in the fridge or freezer.
