Is DETOXING with food possible?

               🍃🌱🍃🌱🍃🌱🍃🌱🍃🌱🍃🌱🍃

Detoxification of damaged cells and removing mucus, plague and rejuvenating organs takes sleep, no pressure on the body or digestion tract, clean water, a clean environment and TIME.

Foods like greens and fruit, melons and berries can help you do this but it’s not the food that detoxifies your body it’s the rest and sleep and introducing fasting where there’s no pressure on the body so it can use all the energy to HEAL. But the food you put in can HELP or HINDER this process i.e. either add to the toxic load or be easy to digest and help pull crap out of the body. Greens are one of the best way to remove toxins, heavy metals and chemical from your body dislodging them and allowing your body to pass them out on its own when you rest.

But only certain foods from nature help to heal the body. These are; fruit, berries, melons, greens, clean water, green juices, coconut water and young tender baby vegetables and sprouts! * Nuts, legumes and seeds and other vegetables and starches do not detoxify the body. I’m not saying they are bad for the body either but they are building foods not drawing foods.

This is a great way to start the journey to detoxing your body…replace your breakfast with this smoothie.

Heavy Metal Detox Buster!

Heavy metals play havoc on the body and we all have too many in our bodies with the world we live in. but if you have a gene mutation like MTHFR or Pyllora you will find detoxing much harder than most. But don’t worry a raw vegan living foods lifestyle will give you the key!

This is my secret weapon to help remove toxins, heavy metals and supporting the nervous system of my boys. The combination of barley grass, greens, aloe vera and blueberries are powerful in removing heavy metals and toxins from the body.

Up to 1 litre of Coconut Water depending on your liking for texture.
Blended till smooth and eaten within 10 minutes for maximum impact.
Incorporating this smoothie into your families diet daily or at least every other day will help detoxify the metals from your bodies along side lots of greens and ripe fruit. I suggest building up slowly to this powerful smoothie especially using Broccoli Sprout powder. An adaptation to this is removing the bananas and adding in the powerful kiwi fruit!! Properties of fruit – Natures SUPERFOODS not from a packet!

Dairy and soy free sour cream.

So what’s it made out of?

Don’t’ worry it’s packed with flavour this  “Sour Cream” is made from sunflower seeds!

What you will need:

Sunflower “Sour Cream”

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup raw soaked sunflowers seeds
  • juice of  1 or a ½ lemon or lime to taste
  • 5 tbsp. water (approx.)

Directions:

Put all ingredients except water in a high speed blender or food processor and blend, adding water one tablespoon at a time until the desired consistency is reached. If you want a thick cream, use less water, for a thinner sauce, use more. (You will not achieve a perfectly smooth sauce with a food processor, but it is still delicious!)

 

i suggest teaming it with my raw salsa and popping in in coz leaves as a crunch snack or dinner…

Raw Salsa

Ingredients:

1 cup chopped cherry tomatoes

½ red bell pepper, chopped fine

½ orange or yellow bell pepper, chopped fine

½ cup pineapple chopped finely

4 green spring onions, finely chopped

¼ cup chopped coriander

¼ cup chopped mint

½ clove garlic, minced

Juice of ½ lime

1 chopped finely pitted date

1 tsp dulse flakes

 

Directions:

  1. Whisk the garlic, lime juice and dates, in the bottom of a bowl and set aside.
  2. Cut up the veggies into small pieces, chop the cilantro and add everything to the dressing bowl. Fold to combine and let sit for at least 10 minutes to allow the flavours to meld.

Place the sour cream in the bottom of coz leafs and dress with the salsa and fresh coriander on top!

This goes really well with my raw tacos and mango salsa…check them out here!

Raw Mexican Nut Free “TACOS”!

Mexican style raw tacos are a favourite in our home for our special treat meal . . .you will love them too…great messy finger food for the kids and packed full of flavour while being healthy and low in fat and the option to make them starch free too. Dress them up with toppings or just eat them simply . . .

IMG_9994.JPG

 

What you will need:

Makes for 4-6 serves.

The “Taco” mixture:

  • 2 corn on the cobs kernels removed (optional if you are no starches at present)
  • 6 semi dried tomatoes soaked
  • 2 dates soaked and pitted
  • 4 fresh large tomatoes halved
  • 1/2 punnet cherry tomatoes quartered
  • 2 sticks celery one for the blender and 1 finally diced
  • 1/2 tsp smoky paprika
  • 1/2 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 8 brown mushrooms and a pinch of dried mushroom if you have it
  • 1 finally diced zucchini
  • 1/2 red capsicum diced
  • juice of 1 lime and zest
  • 1 loose cup coriander chopped
  • 1/2 loose cup mint chopped
  • 1/4 loose cup parsley chopped
  • soaking water (about 2-3 tbs)

To serve:

  • Iceberg lettuce or coz lettuce to serve as tacos
  • 1 cup finally shredded red cabbage
  • Sprouts or micro herbs
  • Sliced avocado
  • Pesto or dip (optional)

 

How to make these:

  1. Soak the dates and tomatoes in very little water till soft (you use the water in the mixture so only use a little, so you keep all the flavour.
  2. In a blender add the 4 large tomatoes, 1/2 the mushrooms, celery, dates, semi dried tomatoes, cumin, paprika’s and soaking water and blend till smooth but still with texture. Then add the remaining mushrooms and pulse till textured.
  3. In a medium bowl add the corn kernels, 1 stick of diced celery, diced capsicum, diced zucchini, lime zest and juice, chopped herbs, quartered cherry tomatoes and stir together.
  4. Add the tomato sauce from step 2. and stir again.
  5. Spoon the mixture into the lettuce cups which I would suggest lining with shredded red cabbage…and top with your favourite toppings!

This mixture gets more flavoursome with time, so I suggest making it in the morning. This will also allow the mixture to set and the liquid to drain off allowing the “tacos” or lettuce cups not to get wet…

Finish with micro herbs or sprouts and slices of avocado or vegan chipotle mayonnaise or vegan sour cream….I used coriander pesto! Dairy and soy free sour cream.

vinegar, 2 spring onions, 1/2 lemon – blended till very smooth

onions and more chopped chives.

 

  1. Pina Colada- ½ cup pineapple juice. ¼ cup fresh mint. ½ cup coconut milk, 2 tbs tahini, 1 inch grated ginger, ½ garlic clove, 1 tbs coconut aminos, squeeze lime- blended till smooth.

 

Of course if you cannot eat garlic or nightshade or spices or nuts substitute these or keep it simple. I do not recommend processed oils or vinegars or salt and pepper – spices are to be kept at a minimum too – oils like olive oil stop the body digesting the food it’s eaten with . . . slowing down the digestion!

Raw Grain Free Bircher.

13524555_1810254575927762_5309211569914861645_n.jpg

Serves 2:
4 tbs chia seeds
4 grated apples
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup hemp seeds.
Cover and leave overnight or at least 30 minutes.

Then add:
1/2 cup goji berries
1/2 cup activated pistachio nuts
1/4 cup activated pumpkin seeds

And 4 passionfruits cut open, which I add on the side as my boys like to scoop them out themselves.

The pistachios are high in omega 3 fatty acids, the pumpkin seeds high in zinc and loads of fiber, vitamin C and protein from the chia seeds. This is a nutrient dense breakfast that will feed their brains, fuel their body’s and give them energy!

Keeps my tribe full till lunch.
🍌 3 ripe bananas per person.
2 ripe sticky dates per person.
🍎 1 crisp apple cored and quartered per person.

Place all the ingredients into a food processor or blender and blitz until an oatmeal type texture forms.

Then add 1/2 cup hemp seeds per person or/and 1 tbsp chia seeds per person.

You can add 1/2 tsp of cinnamon per person too or 1 inch fresh ginger per person is nice as well. If you don’t have apples try just ripe pears 🍐.
