Iced Fruity Apple Pie Chai

Iced Fruity Apple Pie Chai

I was recently given recipes for various iced chai to make but felt that steeping black tea for as long as suggested made the tea bitter. I like my recipe below and have tested it favourably at events that I do. The fruit teas make a great substitute to fruit juices packed with sugar. Recipe works best with Assam Mint, Rooibos Spearmint, or caffeine free fruit teas Steep caffeinated teas for 5 to 7 minutes. […]

Soaking & Sprouting

  Studies have shown that phytic Acid is the #1 anti-nutrient found in seeds, nuts, legumes and grains. It inhibits the absorption of calcium, magnesium, iron, copper and zinc. Sprouting neutralizes phytic acid. Many enzymes that help with digestion are produced during the process of germination. I cannot adequately stress the importance of soaking and sprouting, thus eating live foods! It is a regular occurrence in our home and getting into this habit will become […]
