This beauty is a power smoothie. I call it that because it is both filling and gives you enough energy to tackle whatever task you have in front of you. It is loaded with vitamins, healthy fats and proteins. A great post workout snack or maybe a midday fueler.
If you haven’t used tahini in your smoothies, now is the time to start. You can find my raw Tahini recipe here.

Raw Tahini

My favorite seed is probably the sesame seed. This tasty little seed is full of nutrients like calcium, iron, proteins and healthy fats, and it tastes divine. I regularly make raw tahini (sesame paste), that I keep in the fridge and use in smoothies, puddings, wraps, and as a spread on raw food bread. It lasts for 3-4 days, and it’s super easy to make.

RECIPE:

1 cup raw sesame seeds (un-toasted)
2 cups water, to soak

INSTRUCTIONS:

Soak the sesame seeds for 4 hours.

Drain and rinse them under running water and put them in the fridge to sprout for 2-4 hours.

Take the seeds and mix them in a high-speed blender like the vitamix, until it turns into a smooth paste. You can store the tahini in a sealed glass jar for 3-4 days.

I wish you a week full of wonders!

Beet Smoothie

I’m in a beet flow at the moment. I eat at least 1-2 raw beets every day.
Did you know that in recent lab studies on human tumor cells, betanin pigments from beets have been shown to lessen tumor cell growth. The tumor cell types tested in these studies include tumor cells from colon, stomach, nerve, lung, breast, prostate and testicular tissue.
How awesome is that?!! If you haven’t tried beets in you smoothie before, the time is now!

RECIPE:
1 big beet
1 large sweet apple or 2 small ones
2-3 cm of ginger
1 cup of coconut water

(If you want this smoothie to be even smoother, juice the beet and apple and add a ripe banana)

INSTRUCTIONS:
Peel the beet, then mix everything together in a high speed blender. Remember to use organic and preferably local produce, for the earth and for your beautiful body.

If you are looking for one new healthy habit this is it.

Wishing you a creative day.

Oh this marinara blew my mind! It is so filling and goes good with most dishes. I use it in a wrap, on some zuchini pasta or on a flaxseed cracker. This dish takes 5 minutes to make and can be kept in the refrigerator for about 5 days.

What do you eat for breakfast?

I usually have a smoothie for breakfast (surprised? not really huh). Sometimes I like to spice it up, so today I made this creamy pudding that I topped of with a ton of buckwheat, chia seeds and some cacao nibs. It tasted YUMMY!
topping breakfast

Recipe:
1 banana
1 cup of frozen strawberries
1 orange
1/4 cup of soaked cashews (not a must, but they do add creaminess)

Mix everything in a highspeed blender.

Add your favorite topping like chia seeds, bee pollen or maybe hemp seeds?
If you use my favorite topping, raw buckwheat, remember to soak it over night and rinse it well before you eat it.

I wish you a healthy week.

Hemp Balls Recipe

I love hemp! You can make so much from this precious weed. In my opinion, If every nation would start growing hemp to use as food and clothes (amongst other things) this planet would be a happier place. Here is a delicious and nutritious recipe for your mind, body and spirit.
