My Paleo Alkaline salad - Got most of the recipe from Organichabit

This amazing salad (which was my lunch) is very filling and tastes great.

The ingredients:
lettuce
cucumber
red capsicum (for color)
cubed avocado
red onion finely chopped
2-3 rashers of homemade (yes I made it myself – recipe on request) organic bacon
olive oil
apple cider vinegar
salt and pepper

YUMM!

Chocolate mousse

Sometimes I prepare this for breakfast for my children and it works really well.

Ingredients:

2 cups soaked cashew (2 hrs or more)

6 tbs honey

1 tsp vanilla extract (or 1 vanilla bean)

½ cup water

5 tbs cacao

2-3 tbs cocoa butter

 

Method:

Melt the cocoa butter in a double boiler. Place all the ingredients into the blender and blend very well until a cream consistency. Pour it in glasses or cups and place it in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

Raw breakfast for children

Mornings are always difficult for us because of the many food sensitivities in my family. This breakfast came out after many hours of searching for ways to include more raw food into the children diets. It’s not an everyday make because it requires time and inspiration, it also lacks protein (add a hand full of raw nuts for protein).

The ingredients are listed with no quantities as I haven’t measured anything, just put in whatever was in my fridge.

The result was quite pleasing:

1. Sunrise green blood

Piadins with polenta (almost gluten free) DF, vegan

ImageImage

This my recipe for recycling polenta. If you have any left over polenta from the night before you can transform it into these tasty piadins.

I adapted recipe from http://www.lauraadamache.ro/2009/01/piadine-de-mamaliga.html (it’s a Romanian site by the way).

Ingredients are very easy:

-polenta from the night before

-gluten free flour with raising agent – as needed

– Spelt flour (1/2 cup) (I was afraid to try only gluten free flour but feel free to experiment).

Method:

break polenta into small pieces (make sure you cut any hard pieces, crusts, etc) then add generously gluten free flour and knead.

It takes some time as you have to mix flour and polenta well and knead it vigorously. Add the spelt and continue to knead until you get a nice dough ball.

Divide it into equal small balls.

Place a frying pan (with no oil or only with a spray of olive oil … but works well with no oil) on the stove and heat it up.

In the mean time start rolling the little balls until you get nice flat wrap like piadins.

When the pan is hot start frying them (2-3 mins each side or until they are done).

These piadins are a favorite for my family. You can eat them plain or dipped into salsa or other dip.

Pink yogurt

(gluten free, sugar-free, soy free, raw food, paleo, SCD, GAPS)

Today I’ve made a fruity yogurt for my children (as I run out of breakfast ideas). My son said “mum, write this recipe in your laptop!” …. They loved it so I decided to save it. As it passed the vote of 3 children I’ll call it very children friendly.

Unfortunately I didn’t take any photos as they were almost done when I decided to save the recipe.

 

Ingredients:

2 kiwi peeled and chopped

1 cup frozen or fresh raspberries

1.5 cup yogurt (I’ve had homemade goat’s yogurt – made from raw unpasteurized milk)

2-3 tbs raw honey

 

Method:

Blend them all in your blender and enjoy with more pieces of chopped fruit on top. It will have a very appealing bright pink color.
