Soaking & Sprouting

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 the […]

Chick Pea Salad

Chick Pea (Garbanzo Beans) Salad

In the summer I try not to spend too much time in the kitchen and stick to salads. A lot of the street food in India (“Chaat”) has variations of chick peas on their menu. “Chaat” which has a variation of sweet, spicy and savoury sauces poured over garbanzo beans, potatoes served with cilantro, onions and tomatoes and crispy puris.

Walnut Coconut Chocolates

Walnut Coconut Chocolates

I love these simple chocolates. I have to have a dessert every night. I need to make my own since I have diabetes and this way I have control over how much sugar goes it. I use yacon syrup, pure monk sugar or liquid stevia. Store in the fridge until they harden and then transfer to a tin. This works well for my diabetes and does not elevate my sugars. I limit myself to 2 […]

Black beans

Black Bean Dip

Sira, my lovely guest from Germany, told me she wanted to make some chili and learn how to use my spices. I thought perhaps I can experiment with both the Chili and also make a black bean dip with some of the black beans. The result was this yummy dip below. I don’t have the chill recipe as yet as I need to perfect it before sharing. I have been on a raw food diet which […]

My friends who have by now all tried these goodies asked if I would post it so here you go! I tried many sweeteners which don’t elevate my blood sugar. Stevia, it’s hit or miss for me. If I have the wrong amount it […]
