Sugar Free Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

IMG_1017

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

3 pastured eggs (3 yolks and 2 whites)

2 tbs. colostrum

1/2 jar organic raw cashew butter

3 to 4 tablespoons raw grass fed butter

2 tsp. vanilla powder or extract

3 to 4 dropperfuls of omica stevia or use Donna Gates lakanto or Birch wood Xylitol

3/4 cup fresh hand peeled cacao (Or you could buy non sweetened raw cacao nibs) Or better yet make chocolate chips in dehydrator with lakanto as your sweetener

Mix all ingredients well and form into cookies on dehydrator sheets. Make sure Dehydrator is on at 155 to start out to get it nice and warm. After about 30 minutes you can bring temp down to 125 and then 115 to keep warm through out the day. Serve warm!  Why not use the dehydrator..that way you keep more nutrients intact then baking. It may not make the most perfect cookie but I’d rather have the nutrients!

Raw Vegan Cheesy Alfredo:

serves 2-3 people

Raw Vegan Cheesy Alfredo

In a clean/dry vitamix Blender add the following:

3 heaping tablespoons raw cashew butter

1/2 cup nutritional yeast (make sure it is a reputable source, I like Premier Research Labs)

the juice of 1 lemon

1 og red bell pepper

1 pinch of pink salt

1/2 of a jalapeno pepper..more or less depending on how spicy you like it.

Just enough water to keep thick consistency

Blend on high till a rich creamy consistency is achieved.

Next take 1 bag of kelp noodles or alternatively make zucchini pasta with a mandolin. Take the kelp noodles and drain liquid then put in a glass or ceramic pot with hot water to warm up the noodles. Only till hot but never boiling. Next drain the water. Cut up the noodles with a knife and then pour in the sauce. Mix well. Next chop up heirloom tomatoes for toppings as well as parsley and other farm fresh greens. Sprinkle with minced jalapeno and pink salt. Bam! You have yourself raw vegan cheesy alfredo.

Another Rawesome Soup Recipe:

Juice:  Celery, Cucumber, Beet, Beet Greens, Parsely, lemon

Blend in to that base: carrot, garlic, miso, sea veggies,  turmeric & greens powder of your choosing

Incredibley delicious

Life Soup

An inspired soup. To me it tastes like greasy french fries, some would laugh and say otherwise however to me marrying the tastes of nutritional yeast, pumpkin seed oil and garlic will do that to ya! Here is the recipe.

The Rawsta Wrap

This organic, raw vegan sushi wrap is the bomb and gives you true energy with vibrant rasta colors too!

Start with soaked organic raw sunflower seeds for Vitamin D3

Blend these with Rejuvelac or a similar probiotic drink and let sit and ferment for 4 hours. Now you can add the goodies to it.

I add: marinated garlic (cayenne and oil marinade), nutritional yeast, pink salt, seasonings of your choice…if you want italian, indian just add the spice to create it. I like to add turmeric to give it a yellow color and inflammatory properties. Blend in vitamix again

Next get your nori wrap out and put on a long cuttingboard. Load it with sprouts and medicinal greens then slice some cucumber, avocado and place on wrap, add red cabbage cultured vegg for the red color. I like to add chlorella tablets or powder. Sometimes Spirulina. Now you have a RAWSTA Wrap…roll it up and enjoy with Coconut Aminos and/or minced habanero/jalapeno or home made hot sauce.

Hair Rinse:

Here is a recipe for a hair rinse that can be used daily to provide your hair

with silica, minerals, cleansing and proper ph. Start with a glass quart jarphoto

and fill it with the following herbs:

Chamomile (if you like natural highlights:))

Horsetail/Shavegrass (rich in silica)

Nettle (incredibly strengthening for the hair and full of minerals)

Then add spring water and 1 tbl of vintage vinegar or raw acv.

Let this sit in the sun for a day and then strain out the herbs. After

Shampooing enjoy this rinse for lustrous hair!

Another Version of Green Mineral Machine Smoothie

2-4 heaping tbs of premier greens

1 tablespoon of MCT coconut oil

1 tsp. EFA oil

1 or 2  wild bananas or banana flakes from Ecuador or og mini bananas from the store

2 tablespoons Galactan for fiber and probiotics

1 tsp. fresh ground raw vanilla bean powder

4 soaked organic unsulphured apricots (soak at least 30 minutes to rehydrate).

1 tbs Whey Peptein a truly high resonant whey with nutrition intact and no harm to kidneys.

12-16 ounces of spring water or wild coconut water

A few shakes of fresh ground cinnamon

3 shakes of premier pink salt

1 Tablespoon Royal Jelly

TOP with Bee Pollen

BLEND & SERVE With Gratitude & a BLESSING

The banana coupled with the pink salt gives a wonderful balance of minerals while the pink salt helps the body produce hydrochloric acid. This nourishes the adrenals, tests on all 4 polarities, nourishes the bone with plenty of minerals from the green powder. If you have wild greens add these instead or on top of the greens powder.  The oils are nourishing the kidneys and whole body system, they also help to keep us in the alkaline state. This smoothie is a powerhouse of nutrition. Injoy & Enjoy.

Chanterelle Mushroom Soup….A Noble Choice of Nutrition

Here is a splendid recipe for a superfood soup on a cold day. Gently warm this soup to the touch, careful to not cook the soup but just to experience the warmth it brings the internal organs. The nutrition in this soup and all living food is vulnerable to heat. Keep it in its original state at your best so that you can maintain your original blue print! Here goes……

1 – 2 cups of chopped Chanterelle Mushrooms – The mushroom set aside for Noble Beings back in the day

2-3 tbs. of fermented chickpea miso paste

4-6 cups of Chaga tea brewed fresh

A handful of chopped green onions

Minced Cilantro

Minced Dulse or SeaVegetable of choice…remove shells and scan for these little barnacles before putting into soup

1 Reed Avocado

2 tbs. premier nutritional yeast

1tsp. pumpkin seed oil

A bounty of fresh pressed or fermented garlic

1 pinch pink salt

Optional: Side of Cultured Vegetables for a Body Ecology Approved Dinner

Start with a glass or ceramic pot and pour water in. Either create a broth with the miso & chaga or if you have your own bone broth this would work well.  Let this integrate and then add the mushrooms, sea veggies, onions and garlic. After this sits for 20-30 minutes on a very low temperature pour into bowls. Top with cubes of the avocado, nutritional yeast, pumpkin seed oil, pink salt.  Then either add cultured vegetables or serve on the side. Enjoy this delicious and noble soup recipe!

Lemon & Garlic Pasta

The juice of 3 lemons

2 to 3 cloves of garlic pressed

1 bunch parsley minced

1 bunch cilantro minced

1 bunch basil leaves minced

1 handful of organic cherry tomatoes halved

Sea salt and Fresh ground Pepper to taste

1 tbs south river miso

Place the miso, lemon juice, garlic and seasonings at the bottom of a bowl and mix together. Then spiral your zucchini like pasta thru the mandolin.  Now put this into the bowl and toss. Then add your fresh cut herbs & tomato on top and mix.  This is excellent!

Spaghetti with Marinara Sauce  (Raw Vegan and Low Fat)

2 large organic zucchini

1/4 cup onion

2 cloves of garlic

Premier Labs Tomato Concentrate

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

1 basket of organic cherry tomatoes on the vine

Sea Salt & Black Pepper To Taste

Non Gmo Nutritional yeast (optional as topping)

Black olives are nice on the top too. I like essentail living foods brand

Use a mandolin to spaghetti cut your zucchini. I like to leave the skin on for nutrition. Place these in a bowl. Now blend the rest of the ingredients including 1/4 cup of oil that the sun dried tomatoes soaked in.

Bloomed Rice & “Cheese”

1 or 2 cups of Raw Wild Black Rice

1 part red onion minced

1 part nutritional yeast

1 part tumeric powder

Minced Endive and Cilantro

1 -2 tsp. raw cultured grass fed butter

1/2 cup dulse pieces

Pinch or two of the best sea salt you can get your hands on!

Optional: Peas or other yummy seasoning or veggie of choice.

Optional and I must have for me! Spirulina sprinkled on top and cultured spicy kim chi on the side for better digestion/absorption.

Soak the rice for 24 hours rinsing periodically. Once the rice is bloomed put in a glass pot and turn heat on the lowest setting just to warm. Add the butter in just to incorporate. If you are vegan try coconut oil, works just as well. Next add in the turmeric and nutritional yeast. Take off heat and now you can fold in the minced endive, cilantro, dulse etc.  Let everything get warm and especially allow the dulse to soften. Sprinkle with Spirulina, sea salt and top with cultured veggies. Yeah!

Today we are celebrating summer and this beautiful luminous life that is our birth right. It is time for ice cream! This is just not any ice cream. We are making ice cream that actually heals the stomach and strengthens the immune system. With the friendly bacterias in this ice cream your lower brain (or stomach) will be so happy and it will ascend into your brain giving you feelings of aliveness and well being! Here is the recipe and a not so great photo of the ice cream. I added chunks of raw, organic heirloom cacao paste and slices of wild strawberries ta boot! Enjoy with your eyes and I hope you will try this recipe. The fermented miso gives this dish a creaminess while adding nutrient value. Add your favorite superfoods in small amounts to not compromise the flavor. To make this more medicinal add a bunch of probiotics to it.

Today let’s make a seaweed super food miso soup for nourishment:

Dodhisattva’s Sea Witch Soup:

Sea Witch Super Food Soup

3 to 4 cups clean water

2 to 3 tbs. Fermented Chickpea Miso

Squeeze of 1 lemon

1- 2 tbs. of Vita Mineral Earth from Health force nutritionals

1/2 cup minced celery

2 – 3 garlic cloves pressed

1 tsp. ghee

1-2 tbs. nutritional yeast

5 strips kelp

handful of dulse

1 handful arame

You can either blend the ingredients together or simmer the miso on the stove in a glass pot with lemon juice, earth and garlic. Add in your sea veggies. Last add in the bok celery. Then top with  nutritional yeast & kelp flakes.

Earth, a highly mineralizing & magnetically charged super food.

Get your nourishment on family, this is packed with Earth Grounding minerals and wild foods and medicines that Native people thrived from! Ghee is also a superfood and is incredible for the brain and for the Vitamin k2 which is often in lacking in the diet. Vitamin k2 or xfactor is required for proper brain function and the uptake of calcium into the bones, not into the tissues.

Today as I was searching for new recipes and oldie but a goodie popped into my mind. Here it is!

Mock Crab Meat

This stuff is wonderful.

You will need:

2 cups live sauerkraut (cultured & raw)

1/2 cup – 3/4 cup Tahini (black sesame tahini or regular tahini)

Spices: cayenne pepper, black pepper, dehydrated onion flakes, garlic pressed,

Mix together then add: Fresh dill or parsley minced..whatever suits your fancy! minced and add some himalyan salt and dulse flakes

Wow, wow, wow! Serve on nori wraps or on cucumber and tomato slices.

This is so rocking!

Today is the 6th of July and we are pressing some juice thru the GreenStar! It is day 13 of my juice fast and wow was I excited to get some Amaranth Greens, Yam Leaf and Red Spinach from a local Chinese farmer.

Amaranth is also called Chinese Spinach and it is has been used to treat hair loss and retain the color of the hair or reverse gray. It is also utilized for conditions of the skin. The local farmer’s markets around this area are quite incredible in the summer months. It is such a great idea to get an array of different greens into the diet. Sometimes we get stuck into only a few types but there are just so many to choose from.  Enjoy all kinds of wild & local greens to nourish your body, mind & soul.  Yeah for Amaranth!

Top of the Morning. Today in the Ital Kitchen we are enjoying some Dandy Blend. Dandy Blend is basically an herbal Coffee alternative. It is from Dandelion root, chicory and beet root as well as Barley and Rye Grain. With over 50 trace minerals and no caffeine it is an incredibly full bodied drink.

Cup a Dandy Blend

I have to say I am quite the coffee connoisseur as many years back I ran my own Espresso Bar on the Eastern shores of Maryland. So, I did learn a thing or two about creating the perfect ristretto type espresso and all the frothy yumminess too.  I even went to live and work on an organic coffee farm on the Big Island of Hawaii to learn the in’s and out’s of growing the coffee trees. 

But any way if you like to enjoy something that tastes very similar to coffee but without the caffeine or acid I suggest Dandy Blend. It is an excellent treat. You can even make “coffee” Ice Cream with it or put in your favorite superfood cookie recipe.  I usually take 1 heaping Tablespoon and add it to my hot water. This makes a robust and full bodied cup. Try either frothing fresh home made almond mylk by simply soaking and sprouting almonds over night in water. Then blend them with spring water in the blender. Now strain the fiber with a nut mylk bag or whatever you have on hand. Then put the mylk back into the blender and blend on high. Voila you have frothy mylk.

Homemade Sprouted Almond Mylk

Now take and pour some on your dandyblend.  You just made your first Super Herbal Coffee Drink! You can also add other herbs in with the dandy blend like lucuma or perhaps mucuna is a rich superfood that compliments dandy blend well and is great for the brain. Lucuma will give it some sweetness and add mineral content.

So glad you came to the Ital Kitchen today. We are making super activated face masks! This mask will be a mixture of:

Zeolite Clay

Colostrum

Barley Grass Powder  

What a phenomenal mixture. We have the pulling agent of the Zeolites to detox from smog, pollution, toxins in the air etc.

Then we’ve got the Colostrum which has essential growth factors to help keep the skin youthful and vibrant. I prefer Bovine Colostrum and my source is from ethically raised cows where the baby calf always receive their fill first! Colostrum is incredible for the immune system. Talk about a Super Food. This was a food eaten by Vegan’s lifetime’s ago as it is not milk but the first fluid of the cow.

Then we have got the Barley grass which is loaded with nutrients.

Your skin will be singing after this treatment.

Enjoy this out in the sun barefoot and let it dry thoroughly. Keep on as long as you can and then rinse of with spring water.

Today is a blessed day here in the Ital Kitchen! We just got back from the Farmer’s Market and scored 8 lemons for $1.-, 10 oranges for $1.- and tons of other goodies.

We made some yummy fresh pressed juices as today is my 6th day on a wonderful Juice Cleanse. To me this is the best time of year to do a juice cleanse because the Farmer’s Markets are abundant with all kinds of yummy fruits and vegetables. More on fasting and the health benefits next time.

Here is a recipe for one of the best Juices EVER!

Lemon Ginger Blast

2 small green or fuji apples
1 large cucumber
1/2 celery bunch
1 large bunch of Cilantro
1 bunch of salad greens
2 lemons with peel
2 – 3 inches of Ginger Root
1 piece of Aloe leaf (fillet off the skin and spikes and blend this in after you press the juice).

I almost drank it all before I remembered to do a photo shoot;)

Optional: MSM powder- wonderful for the joints and crucial to collagen creation and soft, supple, skin & hair. MSM harmonizes well with citrus so taking them together is crucial

Clean and cut your veggies. Utilizing Organic produce for juicing is vital as no one wants to juice a bunch of pesticides or herbicides:)

After you press the juice pour it into the vitamix or blend tec blender and add aloe. This will ensure the digestive tract and intestinal walls are soothed. I have mention in another post about the amazing benefits of the Super Food Aloe. Use it often internally & externally.
