I really enjoy the RAW LIFESTYLE. I followed it hard-core for a while but lost my direction. I’m trying to pick it up again. I created this recipe first on 2/26/10 the another on 3/8/10.
• 1 c Soaked Buckwheat Grouts. I soak over night.
• 1/4 c or a handful of Apricot Kernals
• 6 Brazil Nuts
• 2 c of your favorite RAW nuts. I use 1 c of two different kinds
• 1/4 c Hemp Hearts
• 1/2 c Chopped Dried Apples
• 1 1 /2 tspn Cinnamon
• 5 – 6 twists of Ground Celtic Salt
• 1/2 to 1 tspn Ground Green Leaf Stevia – Not White
• 1 c Raisins
Add all ingredients into a food processor fitted w/ the S blade.
Pulse a few time just to mix the ingredients. If you want less clumpy granola pulse more.
This will make 6 1/4 c wet granola or 5 1/2 c dried. You can eat it wet/fresh but it wont last very long. I prefer to dehydrate the granola in my Goof For You dehydrator.
TIP: Everything you dehydrate you should set to 145º for the first hour. This helps insure that no bacteria starts to grow while dehydrating at 95º for another 8-12hrs.
I eat 1/2 c in the mornings, this lasts me for 11 days! Beats paying crazy high prices for RAW granola.
MAKE YOUR OWN! Be creative! I store the granola ina 1/2 gal mason jar, perfect fit!
My daughter turned 6 on October 23rd and I made her a GF Pooh Bear Carrot Cake using Namaste Foods Spice Cake Mix. I used this same mix last year.
The outcome was ok tasting, just like last year. Dad & I liked the taste but Naya didn’t – Bummer! She loved how it looked though! The cake was very dense! I think I will use a different brand next time. For the frosting I just used an organic vanilla frosting mix and used food coloring to make each of my colors. One box actually did the job. I was afraid I’d have to run back into town.
• 1 cup Arrowhead Mills Gluten Free Pancake & Baking Mix
• 1 egg, beaten or egg substitute
• 1 Tbsp. oil of your choice. I used olive oil.
• 1 Tbsp. honey
• 1/4 cup 1 Tbsp. liquid. I used my homemade soymilk.
• I added 1 – 2 TBsp. of my own Green Powder.
Try using Coconut oil or olive oil instead of butter, when cooking. I only have these two oils in my kitchen. Can’t remember the last time I used butter. I spread coconut oil on the pancakes right after I take them off the burner. YUM!
This made 7 nice size pancakes, even though you only see 6. Of course I’m not going to eat seven, so I lay them out on a cookie sheet and freeze them. This is a great quick breakfast for Naya & Jason in the morning. Pop it in the toaster and boom, you got hot cakes!
I topped mine w/ Almond butter and honey. They were good, took some bites before I took the picture . . oops!
This baby cost $179.95 online, I got it for $5. It works great too!! It might take some personal time to make it but the saving are big!
I pretty much copied Julie’s Homemade Soymilk recipe, I just didn’t add the malt & sweetened it differently.
MY SOYMILK RECIPE

I love sprouting all kinds of beans. I’ve sprouted in trays, jars, colanders, bamboo steamers, etc. I really do like the EASY SPROUTER the best though. It is really easy, truly! You can find them on Amazon for only $11.00!
