Hot damn, I have done well with this recipe.

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!

Enjoy!
I certainly am!

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.

A chocolate brownie mix I love.

3/2 handfuls of cashews, blended up.

Add in 1/2 tablespoons of cacao,

up to 1 tablespoon of maca or mesquite or anything other powder/food you want

1-2 tablespoons of honey

1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil hardened.

Blend it all up!
I eat it straight from the processor bowl, but you can totally make it into a proper brownie if you want.

Horsetail and chai tea with a dash of cinnamon.

Pretty amazing on its own, but I would imagine honey would give it that extra “omf”.

Update: this tea’s pretty much knocked me out. I’m so comfortable just sitting here.

August 17th, 2011

For the last couple of days I’ve been drinking tea with ginger, horsetail and dandelion.

Ginger is amazing to heat the body.

I think the horsetail’s been putting me to sleep.

Dandelion’s cool too! I actually think it’s been helping with detoxification. When I have cacao now, I feel a caffeine stimulation. Didn’t feel that before.

Raspberries + peanut butter + chocolate.

Chocolate = cacao powder + soaked and blended chia seeds + agave.

On it’s own, the chocolate is amazing.

Easy to make hot chocolate.

Put some warm to hot water into a jug, (or you can use tea, I add a tea bag for flavor (today I’m using mint))

Add cacao/coconut oil/butter (just put it in solid; it will liquify in the beverage due to the warm/hot water)
Cacao powder (two tablespoons minimum)
Honey (depending on how sweet you want; no honey = bitter)

And any other superfoods or micro nutrients you would like.

Today my hot chocolate consists of:
Mint tea, cacao powder, coconut oil, honey, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, marine phytoplankton, Celtic rock salt.

Just play around with the ingredients. As long as there’s enough cacao, honey and coconut oil in it, the taste is difficult to get wrong.
