“Raw” Pumpkin Pie

I’m not much of a “baker”, but I love mixing this easy dessert for the holidays; it’s a crowd pleaser. Pumpkin is a fall Superfood, loaded with vitamin A, carotenes, fiber, and antioxidants. While a pumpkin pie is definitely still a sweet treat, using raw pumpkin and natural sweeteners like dates and coconut makes it a healthful choice. I say go for it. I love using the extra raw pumpkin in smoothies, too. Here’s my favorite recipe. Raw Pumpkin Pie Crust Ingredients 2 cups of pecan or walnuts 1/4 cup of soaked dates (pitted and cut into small pieces) sea salt, dash Optional: 1/4 cup dried coconut Preparation Blend the crust ingredients in a high speed blender or food processor, then press evenly in the bottom of a pie plate. Raw Pumpkin Pie Filling Ingredients 2 cups of shredded whole pumpkin 2 teaspoons of finely ground almond flour (optional-this helps to hold the pie together) 2 teaspoons cinnamon 1 teaspoon nutmeg 1 teaspoon coconut oil 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 1/4 cup of almond milk or rice milk to blend Preparation 1. Blend ingredients in a blender and place on top of the crust. Set in fridge for a couple hours to…

The Green-tini: a “healthy” cocktail

Eat Drink and Be Merry! Even healthy girls serve, and enjoy, a good cocktail from time to time. And while you probably don’t want to drink alcohol too often (depressant, inflammatory, yeast promoting), when you do, there’s no need to keep your health-minded ways out of sight. I serve distilled, organic vodka to my guests mixed with a citrus green juice and call it a Green-tini! The year-round cocktail avoids the usual sweetened mixes and spirits that can spike your blood sugar and contribute to bad yeast in your gut. The fresh lemon offers alkalizing effects, and fresh ginger heals your digestion. PLUS I like to think all those phytonutrients in the green juice outweigh the negative effects of the alcohol (for sure it doesn’t hurt). Now, with this a healthy(er) cocktail, you can entertain in Nutritional Style. Cheers! Ingredients All organic please! Fill shaker or mason jar with: Two shots of your favorite green juice (click here for my favorite recipe) Half a lemon Thumbnail-sized piece of ginger, crushed 2 shots of vodka Cubed ice Preparation Mix all ingredients and shake. Strain and pour into your fanciest martini glasses when everything is well-mixed. Garnish with organic candied ginger, and…
