Magic Power Bombs. #Recipe for those who love themselves

Tools: blender, grinder, bowls, cutting board, tray, folk, parchment paper, hands...

Step 1 - Make the Magic Power dough:

Ingredients to make approximately 12 bombs:

2 cups puffed rice/millet/quinoa or any other clean grain
2 T hemp seeds
2 T flax seeds, ground
2 T sunflower seeds
2 T dry goji berries
½ cup raisins
2-3 T coconut nectar (or any other sweetener)
5 T raw coconut oil, melted
Combine all the power ingredients and blend until you have superfood dough.

Release the mixture in to a large bowl and lovingly mix.

Form small golf ball size treats from the dough and place them on a parchment paper.

Freeze for at least an hour.

A tip: If have trouble forming the balls add an additional ¼ cup raisins and blend again.

Step 2 - Make the coating:

Ingredients:

4 T raw cacao powder
A pinch of Himalayan salt
2 T sweetener of your choice
5 T raw cacao butter, melted
Mindfully mix all the ingredients into a smooth chocolate liquid.

Step 3 - Enrobing the bombs:

One by one, drop the bombs into the thick chocolate lake. Let them get thoroughly covered. Fish them out with a folk and gently transfer back to the parchment paper.

After the last ball is covered, repeat the enrobing for a thicker chocolate coating.

Let the treats set in the refrigerator for a few hours.

Enjoy! Share! Do it all over again!

A tip:

To coat like a pro, place the freshly coated treats on a cooling rack or a grill tray to allow the extra chocolate drip away from the treats. This will prevent the chocolate from pooling and the treats will not have "a chocolate foot."

How To Make God's Cheese (plant-based)

This is a very easy basic recipe for those who wish to try something different. You don’t have to be  called a vegan to enjoy vegans delights. Clean and honest food is our birth right, and now is a good time to claim that right back.

 Making this creamy-dreamy white (Goats cheese-like) edible magic might be life-changing and diet-rearranging for you, as it was for many of us. So, let’s play.

 

 I have to say, my spoilt palate missed the taste of cheese when I went fully vegan. You can only imagine my delight when I discovered this edible joy. It tastes like goats cheese, yet it is plant-based, in total alignment with where our new world is going.

Please feel free to replace pili nuts in this recipe with any other kind of nuts that you have at hand (macadamias, cashews, almonds). They will work as spectacular.

Tools: blender, spatula, cheese cloth or a nut milk bag, large pot, colander (what you use to strain cooked pasta), something heavy to use as weight, and a storage container.

Ingredients:

-          1 Cup Pili nuts, soaked* and peeled

-          1 cup of good water

-          ½ t Himalayan salt

-          2 probiotic capsules

and

-          herbs of your choice (fresh or dry), garlic, black/red pepper, Himalayan salt, or  cranberries and chopped nuts for coating. I leave this to you, gorgeous.

How-To:

 Blend the nuts with water into a smooth creaminess. Add the content of the probiotic capsules and blend one more time.

 

Place the cheese cloth over the colander and pour the soon-to-be-cheese in. Use the spatula to get the remains out of the blender.

 

Wrap the cheese cloth around the mixture, turning it into a bag. Squeeze the bag a little and place the weight right over it.

NOW. Place it somewhere warm and non-drafty (I like using the inside of the oven) for about 17 to 24 hours (depending on the climate of the country you are in). I make this in the evening and start checking (tasting) in the  morning after 15 hours of maturing process. Once you do this once, you will know the time that works for you.

Once you feel your cheese is ripe enough, take it out of the cloth, mix it with anything your wild heart desires**, coat in herbs or nuts…… and refrigerate for at least a few hours before calling everyone for a new world cheese-and-crackers party.

A note:

I made my first vegan cheese in Kuta, Bali when it was ridiculously hot. It took us 17 hours to get that cheesy taste right. When I made it in Thailand, it was 20 hours of maturing that was just right.

*Pili nuts take only 20 mins to soak, when most of other kinds of nuts need a few hours.

**Here are a few of my suggestions to make your God's cheese absolutely outta-this-world:

-chopped cranberries and thyme (fresh or dry)

-black pepper corns, dill and garlic

-cayenne pepper and poppy seeds

-chopped pistachios and walnuts…..

 Play, beloved, try your own combinations of flavours, there is no limit to our creativity here.

Enjoy! Let me know what you came up with, send some pictures too.

Stay clean, fit and fabulous. You are worth it.

Pistachio Praline. #Recipe GIFT.

Tools: blender, bowls, cutting board, folk, parchment paper, a cooling rack

Step 1- Make the pralines:

Ingredients to make approximately 20 pralines:

  • 1 cup pistachio nuts

  • A pinch of sea salt

  • A pinch of vanilla

  • ¼ cup raw coconut oil, melted

  • T raw honey or any other sweetener

  • 1 T chopped pistachios, for decoration.

Blend/grind the nuts and salt first, then add the coconut oil and honey. Blend again. Transfer the creamy mixture into the bowl and use your hands to form pralines. Place them on a parchment paper and freeze for at least an hour.

Step 2 - Make the chocolate coating (ChocoLuv):

Ingredients:

  • 4 T raw cacao powder

  • A pinch of Himalayan salt

  • 2 T sweetener of your choice

  • 5 T raw cacao butter, melted

Lovingly mix the cacao with a sweetener and salt in a large bowl until the chocolate mass is smooth and silky.

Step 3 - Enrobing:

Dip frozen pralines in the chocolate lake a few times, until completely coated. It’s easy: toss them into the coating, let them swim around and fish out with a fork, letting the treats dry on a parchment paper.

Decorate with finely chopped nuts while the chocolate coat is still moist. Let the pralines rest in the refrigerator for a few hours.

Enjoy the luxury moments of life in a Guilt-Free Way, the only way.

A tip: To be a real pro at “enrobing,” transfer the treats onto a cooling rack to let the chocolate drip rather than pool. This will prevent your heavenly creations from having a “chocolate foot,” making them look seriously professional.

Dreams&Greens. 3 Days ReCharge Program. Because U Love Yourself.

 Are You familiar with “I just wanna stay in bed” – feeling?

As someone living with the auto-immune condition, I have been long-term friends with this feeling. There are better friendships to have, I have learned.

 There are times in life when everything gets so intense that it feels like we are running a marathon. We are feeling drained, exhausted and empty, but we must keep running. Life does not stop, demands and expectations do not end. Our dreams, our jobs, our family and friends, our bodies, our minds, and our souls…… everything needs energy to feed off. Without that energy dreams die, family and friends begin to distance, body becomes dysfunctional, mind gets dull… and soul falls asleep.

Do you know what I am talking about? If you do understand this energy business, then I have something special to share with you. Being a stubborn cookie and refusing to take meds, I had to find my own way to stay well and have energy. This is just a little sharing of many of my self experiments. Take what resonates with you, dismiss what does not, and have heaps of energy to enjoy this spectacular ride - life.

So… How do we stay vibrant?

 How do we stay motivated and joyful?

 How do we keep our passion for life and shine like a naked bum under the full moon?

 How do we keep going?

The answer is - We must have energy to run on. The more - the better. When it comes to energy  MORE is the best word.

 The thing is - We must make a daily effort to create energy to run on.

  Let me put it like this. Imagine your bank account. Every day you, big spender, are happily making withdraws from it. But you keep forgetting to make a deposit. You take out a lot… yet you put nothing back in. You keep spending. Life does not stop, demands and expectations do not end. We pay for everything, whether it is with money or with our own energy. That is the price of being alive.

May I ask you? How long do you think you are going to last this way? What is going to happen to your account with no deposits made? I believe bankruptcy is the word here.  Same with your energy bank, love.

Without making deposits, without recharging your inner batteries, on a regular basis…. you will not go far. I worked with many people who ran on empty for far too long not to think that this uneducated approach to our energy is tragic.

So, enough said, let us get to the point.

How Do We Create Energy and make deposits to our energy bank?

The answer is really simple - ReCharge your batteries on a regular basis.

 

How to recharge?

 

- Exercise/Move any way you wish

- Detox/Cleanse your system, give your body a holiday.

- Meditate/Rest/Get quiet.

 

This is a real basic ReCharge program that I have tested numerous times for over 20 years. It works miracles, done with self-love and self-honesty.

Tools you need: sexy blender, gym, sauna/steam, motivation.

Side effects: slimmer body, clarity, deep feeling of satisfaction, bright eyes, and happier mood.

 

Things to KNOW about this program:

  • There is no way anyone can feel fabulous without exercise. MOVE!

  • Body heals itself once we give it a rest from being bombarded with all the processed foods and sugars we take on a daily basis. FAST.

  •  Using the right edible substances during the program enhances its effects.

    List of foods to take:  pineapple, curcumin, high vibe raw cacao nibs/beans, chia and flax seeds, raw coconut oil, spirulina, fresh honest greens (sprouts, kale, parsley, coriander/etc), healthy liquids, like tea, fresh juices and water. NURISH.

  • Drinking real good water makes a huge difference. Make sure your water is clean and honest. HYDRATE.

     

    How to do the Dreams&Greens ReCharge Program?

     

  • Make time to give yourself this gift. Just a few days of self-love might be life changing.

  • Prepare for the program by avoiding animal protein, sugar or anything fried for a few days before.

  • Get into the right mind set. Motivate yourself with something ah-mazing. Motivation will get you there faster than a blink of the eye.

  • Each day start with a big glass of warm water with lemon/lime drops, followed by the golden milk (if you still do not know it, google it)

  • Spend some time alone each morning. Meditate or just breathe and be. Look at the sun.

  • Take 100 mg niacin (Vit B3) and go exercise. Power walking/ Gym work/Rebounding/Intense Yoga practice. Whatever keeps you happy, do it for 40 mins at least.

  • Sauna/Steam right after.

  • Rest.

  • Make a large re-charge smoothie by mixing fresh pineapple with soaked chia/flax seeds and some greens. Add any other super foods you like.

  • Do something creative: write/dance/sculpt/paint/whatever keeps your vibe high.

  • Have a massage or a nice hot bath with Himalayan salt in it, or both (!)

  • Get fresh juices into your system every few hours.

  • Stretch your body (and mind) in the evening to the most beautiful calming music.

  • Stay silent as much as you can. Talking takes a lot of energy, and very often it is wasted on absolute bs. Value your words.

  • Dream and envision great stuff!

  • Repeat for a few more days changing activities, music, dreams and greens.

    This program can be done from 3 to 7 days. It is really easy and pleasant on every level, leaving anyone with a glow and extra sparkles, not to mention seriously increased energy level.

     I am writing this on the second day of my own Dreams&Greens ReCharge program after intense time in Ukraine. We all need some self-love time, we are all worth it.

    I share more on this sensitive subject of staying fit and well natural and easy way in my first book Chocolate Revolution: Hack The Food Industry. Released this year.

    I share because I care.

  •  

    Thank you for spending time with me here. Hope you found it helpful. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you to help you shift gears in life.

    ps1. If you are in doubt about doing the ReCharge program on your own, please consult your doctor.

    ps2. Taking Niacin will create a flushing-and-blushing sensation, you might go red and itchy for about 20-30 mins. This is very normal response, have fun with it!

How I Met the Cacao Tree that Changed my Life.

I will never forget how I met a Theobroma cacao, or a “chocolate tree,” that became my teacher, my friend, and my inspiration.

I was living in Bali on my friend’s magical land outside of Ubud. It was an important time in my life – I made a decision to wake up and find the courage to follow my dreams no matter what.

For a few months, I lived in a tiny, cozy house, hugged by the green arms of Mother Nature. I slept under the stars, ate mostly raw, organic food, as well as food cooked over the open flames of a fire that my friends and I made out of coconut shells. I practiced yoga and meditated under tall whispering trees. The singing of birds was my natural iPod. I took showers outside while watching the butterflies and birds play in the sunlight. There was no Internet and cellular reception was poor at best. I learned to experience a real connection to nature, with no Wi-Fi.

During this time, I entertained myself by making hundreds of chocolates for friends and local restaurants, gazing at the stars, and laughing with my friends around the fire. I felt deeply connected to everything that is, and in harmony with all.

I was exploring one day, lost in the green love of nature, wandering and checking out all the magical creatures around me. I noticed strange little flowers growing directly from the trunk of a tree that grew next to the house I lived in. Two star-like eyes were looking at me, as if the tree was a person. I was captivated. I had seen Theobroma trees with hanging cacao pods before, but this was my first experience with the flowers. Cacao eyes.

 

This star-like flower touched my soul and inspired me to think deeper into things.

Looking at this fragile and almost helpless creation of nature, I could not wrap my head around the concept of a chocolate bar emerging from it at some later stage of its existence.

From that day on, I moved all my practices under the green canopy of my newly found friend. Sometimes I heard its whisper in the wind; it was sharing many things with me, including its prediction of this book that you are reading.

Self-Love-asana... OR... How To Love Yourself in just 5 mins... and Why?

Admit it. There is more room for the self-love in you, always has been.

Perhaps you do not allow yourself to go there cos one gloomy day some smart ass told you that it is selfish to love yourself…and you believed it. Or maybe you do want to go there… but do not know how.

 How do we LOVE ourselves and why? Isn’t self-love something self-centered and inappropriate? Aren’t we supposed to love others more than we love ourselves?  There are many opinions in our world on this sensitive subject. The question is: What feels right to you?

Do you put a safety jacket on others or on you first? How do you give what you don’t have, even if you really want to?

To me self-love was one long rocky journey. Through years of sickness, self-distruction and denial I walked, mostly crawled, towards its light like a thirsty man lost in a desert makes his way towards the water. It took me decades to learn what you will read here in just a few minutes. From disliking myself so much that I just wanted to disappear from the surface of the Earth… to really reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally loving being me (whatever that is) …was one hell of a ride. Thanks to Yoga and my insatiable hunger for truth I kinda figured it out for myself… Now I wish to share it with you, in case you are still in the process of figuring it out. Sometimes we get inspired by listening to the heart sharing of others. And I love sharing, whether it is my experience, raw chocolate, or knowledge.

Here is the thing, baby: There is no such thing as LOVE without embracing, respecting, and honoring what lives through you. If you lack self-love, you will keep looking around, waiting for someone ‘special’ to make you feel loved. You will keep looking for someone else’s approval of what is U. You are a cosmic beggar without self-love. Lacking it will make you feel as insecure and small as it is humanly possible. The worst thing is that you will keep getting challenged by those of us who worked hard to have it. “Self-centered bastards. Just who do they think they are?” That creates distance and disconnection between us… How does that serve anyone? Deep in your heart you know: You wanna be like that too. You want to shine and confidently radiate what you really are. You want to move through your days knowing why on Earth(!)  you are here and what you want. You want to gracefully navigate through the bullshit of this mad ass yet somehow beautiful world. You want it, don’t you?

We all do... None of us can do it without this "tiny little thing" that we so conveniently forget and successfully fail – self-love.

 So, if you know you are ready to shift your gears, here is what works for many of us. If this Self-Love-asana thing is not your “cup of tea,” let me assure you: There are many other ways out there.  Find what works for your beautiful you and increase the self-love volume. You will be surprised at the results.

 Human STAR. Self LOVE-asana:

-Find a quiet place in nature that you absolutely LOVE and face it.

-Switch your phone off. You will survive without it, believe me.

-Ground through your feet wide apart. Stretch your arms out and gently hug the tummy in. Feel your heart beat.

-Let your breath travel between your heart and your belly (hara) for a few moments.

-See yourself as a Human Star: you are radiating what you are from the heart through the spine, all the way into your fingers, toes and out through the crown of your head. You are bigger that U. You are a sacred human geometry moving through space and time.

-Give yourself permission to SHINE. Feel what you feel and become acutely aware of the vastness that you unsuspiciously carry within that cute little thing called “Me.”

-You are a drop of the mysterious, luminous ocean of Light that is everything. Feel it. What is in front of you is what is within you. What is above you is what is within you. What is outside of you is what is inside you.

-Repeat in your mind “I love you” as many times as you wish. Let the awareness of yourself as a Human STAR expand all the way to the stars in the sky. You are it! You are what your heart has been quietly suspecting U to be… for a while now. You are that and more!!!

-Give yourself a hug. You are hugging the most important person in your life. You are the One you are looking for. Breathe yourself in and out. Let yourself happen. Let yourself be. Honor what lives through you. You are U-niverse. This world would be different and a little less without you. Know it, feel it. Do not let anyone dim the light of that knowing. Do not ever give up on what came to live, to shine and to love through you… even if everyone else does. You are a STAR… worthy of life, worthy of LOVE.

Imagine this world full of people loving themselves, honoring each other, shining and living. Once you and me do this... those around us will be inspired too.... and the rest of the world will catch up.

And that is all to it.

Thank you for visiting my site, beloved. I share more self-healing and self-ass-kicking motivational exercises in my other articles and my first book Chocolate Revolution... coming out soon.

Yours truly

Sexy Ways To Sweeten Life. New World sweeteners

Most of us love a little sweet now and then.

Once we take full responsibility for what substance delivers that sweetness to our palate and our life, we can rock our worlds like we could never imagine: we feel and think better, we like the way we look, and that is kinda sexy.

There are many sweeteners available to us these days that are far healthier than the stripped-down, refined and processed white stuff: real, raw honey, natural sweet powders made from dried fruits, yummy syrups lovingly made from flowers, roots and tree saps, and amazing plant drops.

 

The quality of the sweeteners we choose affects the quality of our chocolates, not only in taste and value, but texture as well.

A Note to the Chocolate Artist:

Honey or syrup (sweet liquids) makes the chocolates smooth to the palate, while all sugars or raw coconut crystals add a nice crunch.

Honey: There are many kinds of honey out there, and they are referred to by many different names – raw, natural, pure, adulterated, and artificial (no idea why it is called “honey.”) I suggest ONLY raw, natural honey, with no additives, if you want exceptional results. The final result of our creation is only as good as the knowledge we apply to create it.

 

A special note on Manuka honey: It will add to the VV of your chocolates, and also will make them taste like rum truffles.  

Sugars: There are many kinds of sugar that can be used in our chocolate creations that are far healthier than white, refined sugar. New World Alternatives include: coconut, palm, and date sugar, raw coconut crystals, jaggery, and carazuc (a name for organic coconut flower sugar), just mention a few.

 

I do not encourage eating a lot of sugars, I simply suggest replacing the white addictive stuff with a healthier alternative. Please make sure that you do your research and read the labels to make conscious choices that serve and support the best in you and in this world.

If you are vegan or wish to avoid any kind of sugar, yet still fancy chocolate treats, I suggest substituting medjool dates or seedless raisins blended into a sweet mass. They make a terrific sweetener while naturally taking care of the texture of our treats - no binder is required.

Other Ways to Sweeten Life and Chocolates: For people with diabetes, the sweetener I used with great success is stevia from reliable manufacturers. In my experience, sensitive people also tend to respond well to yacon syrup. It is especially good for those who are on a diet or trying to watch their weight.

 

A few words about lucuma that I like to add to this category as well: It is a sweet powdered superfood with a maple-like taste that is high in minerals and vitamins, including beta carotene, zinc, iron and many other nutrients. It comes from the Peruvian fruit and proves to be a perfect sweetener for decadent creamy creations, suitable for the most sugar sensitive of us.

There is a safe way to sweeten life for every kind of uniqueness in us, we just need to make a little effort, do the research and apply the knowledge.

To me, there is nothing more pleasing than to watch a person, who has been deprived of all of their favorite foods due to illness, finally enjoying sweet treats that taste really “naughty,” and yet don’t do damage to their system. Guilt-free, decadent treats are a miracle to me!

While there is a lot more information about sweeteners available, I am sharing a little of what I know in order to inspire you to learn more.~ from Chocolate Revolution:Hack The Food Industry

Blend the first four ingredients (bananas, cacao powder, coconut oil and vanilla) into a seductive chocolate mousse. Pour the mixture into the bottom of each glass.

 Step 2 – Make the coconut cream:

Blend the cream, sweetener and the coconut flour into a heavenly frothy mass. Set aside while you are creating the rest.

Step 3 – Prepare the berries:

Cut 5 strawberries into small pieces to create the desired look of your dessert. Mix them with washed and dried blueberries in a bowl. Put some of that awesome berry mixture into each glass, on top of the cacao mousse. Two remaining strawberries will be the toppings of your treats.

Step 4 – Make it happen:

Pour the creamy coconut mass over the berry mix in glasses. Divide the remaining berries between two desserts. Pour more cream over, and top it all up with a strawberry.

Garnish with cacao and a handsome mint leaf (optional).  You can have your 2Live4 desserts right away or later. They will happily wait for a few hours in the refrigerator.

A tip: if you do not intend to enjoy your dessert the same day, freeze it.

To You, Who Could Have Loved

 I know why You are so afraid to Love.

You are afraid to lose control.

By Love I do not mean the lovie-dovie,  i-want-you kindda Love.

I mean the Love that will squeeze you out of your skin……. the Love that will drive you out of your head and take you places  that will turn you inside out........... and challenge everything you knew.

This Love will kick your egoistic little butt and make you CARE about so much more than your cutie little Self.  It will make you jump into the fire, cross the oceans and give  away everything you have…..

This Love will make you do stuff You never thought you could or would........  and force you to make time for what you judged, dismissed and and have excluded.

This LOVE will strip you naked, leaving you with nothing  but the TRUTH.

It will humble you, dismantle you and put you back together in no-mind way. It will show You   the God's way, the only way. You will FEEL so deeply that you will find it hard to breathe.

 LOVE! The most powerful force in the Universe.

It gushes like a blood river from an open wound.

It is like a desert sun that burns  with no mercy.

This LOVE is out of your hands..... This force  will not be tamed by  anybody's rules.

.............no wonder You are so afraid to Love.

  Why have a sweet illusion of control instead of life full of wonder,  endless miracles and  joy???...... from my next book "Love Revolution"
