July 2013 Newsletter


Welcome Friends,

It is such an honour to share with you each month. You folks are such a joy to interact with! Thank you for being a part of our experience!!  

We had a great time at our Back to the Basics Workshop last month. Some folks drove 6 hours to be with us! Now that is commitment to getting healthy, the natural way!
 
The inspiration for this month's newsletter came due to the overwhelming response to the food we prepared & shared at the Workshop.

Food and fun seem to go together, so in this newsletter we will focus on RECIPES that are healthy, easy and fun to make!


Summer Fun Recipes


Suede Hills Taco Salad (Also known as Haystacks!)

93This is a very versatile meal. It is great for large gatherings or at a serve-yourself dinner.

  • Start with Chopped Romaine Lettuce as the bottom layer on your plate
  • Blue Corn Chips or Taco chips of your liking, crumbled on top of the lettuce
  • Next a good ladle full of home-made Vegan Chili (recipe below)
  • Add chopped Tomatoes and or Salsa to your taste
  • Add a dollop or two of Cindy's Simple Guacamole, YUM! (recipe below)
  • Sprinkle with chopped Green Onion

DIG IN AND ENJOY!!!

Cindy's Vegan Chili

  • Sauté 2 chopped Onions in Coconut Oil or Olive Oil.
  • Add 2-3 cloves  fresh Garlic or 1 teaspoon of Garlic Powder
  • Add ½ teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt
  • Add 1-2 heaping Tablespoons of Chili Powder (option: add 1 Tablespoon of Curry too!)
  • 4 cups Stewed Tomatoes plus 2-3 cups of Water (depending if you use dried lentils)
  • ¾ cup Sun Dried Tomatoes in Olive Oil
  • Add 3-4 cups of cooked beans (I use Black beans or Black-eyed beans) Sometimes I add a ½ cup of dried Lentil mix as a variation.
  • Next add 1-2 cups of Veggies of your choice; Carrots, Celery, Zucchini, etc. (I start with the firmest veggies and then add the softest last so they do not all turn to mush.)

Heat until hot but veggies still have a bit of a crunch to them. Avoid overcooking the fresh veggies you add, that way they have more nutrition to offer you. ENJOY!

Cindy's Simple Guacamole

In a bowl mix together:

  • Juice of one lemon
  • 2-3 peeled and seeded Avocados
  • ½ teaspoon Pink Himalayan Salt
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon of Garlic powder
  • 2-3 green onions chopped

This "Guac" is fantastic as a dressing too, you can leave it thick or thin it out with a little water.

Will keep for 4-5 days in the refrigerator.

Experiment and have fun.

The good fat in avocado helps you to feel satisfied longer. This is a staple in our diet. We even use it on cooked potatoes instead of butter! YUM!


Now For Dessert!


Awesome Carob Orange Oatmeal Cookies!

(VEGAN *GLUTEN- FREE)

I hope the recipe is a blessing to you. Experiment with it and have fun!

  • Mash 3 ripe Bananas
  • Add 1 teaspoon of Suede Hills Green Leaf Stevia Powder, stir thoroughly
  • Add 1/3 cup Applesauce and stir all of the above together
  • Mix in ¼ cup Almond Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon Pink Himalayan Salt
  • A dash or two of ground Cloves
  • 2 Tablespoons of Carob Powder
  • A handful of Carob Chips,
  • Add a handful of Raisins and or chopped Dried Apricots
  • Mix in a handful of chopped Pecans
  • Then add the Zest of one Orange to the blend, and then mix all together.

The final step is to add,

  • 2 cups of Oats, stir in until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  • Drop spoonfuls of the batter on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

This makes clean up quick and easy.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes.

ENJOY!
