Get about 1/2 cup of chia seeds, soak them in 1 cup of water until all the water has been soaked up.
Blend the chia seeds until you get a nice white, spotted grey consistancy, then add in 2 tsp of bee pollen, 2 tsp of honey, 4 tsp liquid coconut oil, and blend.
Pour into another bowl and add in mixed berries or banana or any fruit you would like!
I certainly am!
3 handfuls of cashews
1 handful of walnuts
3 heaped teaspoons of hemp seeds
blended together with a little water
3 heaped teaspoons of cacao
2 heaped tablespoons of maca
3 capsules of fenugreek
2 teaspoons of bee pollen
3 heaped teaspoons of honey
half a teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper powder
1/4 teaspoon of chilli powder
Don’t drink it too fast. I just had three gulps and it just hit my stomach. Oof. Completely stuffed.
Oh, my gosh. This is my first chocolate smoothie since, well, Thursday. But it really has blown my mind (or my taste buds).
Soaked chia seeds (probably a table spoon), blended.
Water and (ingredients below) added, then the mix is blended again.
1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil
4 capsules of fenugreek
2 tablespoons of honey
1 tablespoon acai powder
2 teaspoons reishi powder
2 tablespoons hemp powder
1 tablespoon bee pollen
2 heaped tablespoons of cacao
This is really, really, really amazing.
Now I saw raw honey. Why raw honey? Well raw honey hasn’t been cooked, so it’s still got all the living enzymatic and amino acids present, so it’s so much more easily absorbed by the body to create a healthy sugar source, which can easily be used as a substitute to fruits, considering how much little sugar is present in comparison, as well as how easily bio-available it is to the body.
Now, why organic honey?
Well, when honey is created by bees, the bees only travel so far. So when non organic honey is collected, it is collected from bee hives living in a certain proximity to sprayed crops, or non-organic crops. Organic crops, therefore, have to be in a certain proximity where no crops are being sprayed.
Another consideration of why organic honey, is because in bee hives wax is created. This wax holds all the toxicity of the surrounding environment, and this wax is in raw, uncooked honey. Cooked honey does not contain the wax, or it does but not to as much of a degree to raw honey.
Now don’t go away thinking that wax in raw honey is bad, it’s totally natural and amazing for the body! It is one of the primary factors in honey being created, and it therefore assists the body in so many ways. The wax is only bad when the surrounding bee hive environment is being sprayed with herbicides and pesticides, such as that of the non organic crops. Actually, a small side-note here, is that when scientists want to measure the toxicity of an environment, they will test the wax of a bee hive. This is precisely why cooked honey would be a better preference to raw honey when buying non-organic, because the wax factor would have been removed to a degree, and therefore there is a lot less toxicity going into the body.
So, when choosing to buy raw or cooked honey, if you cannot get your hands on a decent, local, certified organic honey, make sure that you buy cooked honey, as there will not be as much toxicity in the honey as compared to raw honey.
Now onto the nutritional value of raw honey.
Raw honey contains:
- Very high antioxidant levels
- Incredibly fantastic source of fructose, or the most simplest sugar available to the body
- The best source ever of carbohydrates: easily absorbed, easily bio-available, easy to eat, no form of fermentation in the body, unlocks more blood sugars from the liver and body, is almost instantly absorbed into the blood stream, therefore producing one of the best sources of energy for the entire body.
Honey helps the body:
- Alkalize the digestive system: counteracts over-acidity
- Relive nausea
- Gain energy
- Digest starchy foods
- Remove Microbial bodies: anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal
- Anti tumor
- Control blood sugar
- Assist and help the liver: due to the fructose.
- Become more sensitive to insulin: Good because the body will be less susceptible to over-producing insulin, therefore increasing longevity, and benefiting the pancreas.
- Utilize memory
- Remove bad cholesterol
- Boost immune system
- Reduce coughs: proven to be more effective than cough medicine.
Honey can be used:
- In tea or coffee as a sugar alternative
- In smoothies as a fruit alternative
- On bread or anything else as a butter or spread
- Can be used in drinks as a sweetner. For example, goji/lemon juice with honey is amazing for athletes, due to both the alkalizing effect and the effective rate of which the carbohydrates, minerals and cell-producing benefits are absorbed, therefore the body doesn’t need to waste as much time absorbing carbohydrates, compared to that of meat, starches (bread, pasta, rice) or even “sports drinks”. Honey in water is essentially the ultimate sports drink.
Tulsi red chai tea, cashews, goji berries, bentonite clay, fulvic acid (three droppers :O), 3 capsules of pau d’arco :O, maca powder, acai powder, cacao powder, cacao butter, bee pollen, honey, dulse flakes, and i cant remember the rest.
As quoted by some guy’s famous song that they use on Family Guy:
“And I’m gonna be, HIGH.”
Based on: Chia tea, which was turned into cashew nut-mylk.
Added: shitload of chia seeds, acai berry, cacao powder, maca, bee pollen, honey, dash of cayenne pepper, dash of vanilla essence, bentonite clay, coconut oil (or butter).
Me thinketh that be it-eth.
Today’s first hot chocolate. The first was for mum, the second’s going to be a hell of a lot more complex.
Base: goji’s/goji juice
coconut oil, cacao, vanilla essence, bee pollen, honey, fulvic acid. (i think thats it)
I have almonds soaking atm and a mint tea ready for the next hot chocolate. It’s going to be hardcore.
In front of me I have a hot chocolate/chocolate ice cream mixed to make the best chocolate smoothie ever, and a maca smoothie which was intentionally going to be maca ice cream, but whatever.
Hot (heated to around 35 degrees and is now cold) chocolate: cacao powder, cacao butter, fulvic acid (with aloe vera and green algae), coconut oil, agave, honey, stevia, maca, bee pollen. The base is ginger tea.
Chocolate ice cream: hell of a lot of chia seeds, bee pollen, honey, maca, cacao butter, cacao powder, fulvic acid (with aloe vera and green algae), coconut oil, stevia.
Maca smoothie: maca, chia seeds, agave, stevia, coconut oil, cacao butter.
A few sips and I am stuffed.
