How To Make God's Cheese. Plant-based treat

This is a very easy basic recipe for those who wish to try a different kind of cheese. You don’t have to be 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 for you, as it was for many of us. So, let’s play.

 

 I have to say, being a real foodie, my 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 just like goats cheese, yet it is made from nuts, and in total alignment with harmony and Universal laws. The little baby goats can have their milk, and we can enjoy our cheese.

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 all 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 a press, 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, or cranberries and chopped nuts for coating. 

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 mixture 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 press/weight right over it.

NOW. Place it somewhere warm and non-drafty (like 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 your location.

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 your friends for Gods 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 nuts need a few hours, not more than 7.

**Here are a few of coating 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 or walnuts

-dry dill and red pepper, as pictured above.

 Play with your food.

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

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

Step 1- Make the Cake mix:

Ingredients:

-         2 T coconut or almond (or other nut) milk

-         6 T raw cacao powder

-         2 T maca powder

-         1T lucuma

-         ½ t vanilla seeds

-         2 T coconut flower nectar or maple syrup

Divide the mixture into two equal parts.

Roll each part into a ball and flatten between your palms so they look like thick, dark pancakes.

Place one “love cake” on a plate sprinkled with shredded coconut.

Step 2 - Making the cake:

Ingredients:

-         1 T fresh chilled coconut cream

-         1 t shredded coconut, for garnish

-         1 t raw cacao powder, for garnish

-         1 T extra coconut nectar for smudging the bottom layer of the cake (optional)

Spread the extra sweetener (if you decide to use it) on top of the first chocolate layer. Add a layer of coconut cream.

 Gently place the second chocolate “pancake” on top of the cream.

Align the layers. You are a chocolate version of Michelangelo now.

Dust the top of the cake with cacao powder and decorate with shredded coconut.

Serve chilled, on one plate with two folks! 

Candles?

Love is always in the air. Enjoy!

Pistachio Praline

Pistachio Praline.jpg

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:

Ingredients:

  • 4 T raw cacao powder

  • A pinch of Himalayan salt

  • 2 T sweetener of your choice (Marple syrup or Coconut nectar, etc)

  • 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 chocolate, 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.

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. Self Healing Program.

Shift Happens.jpg

 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 too intense.  We are feeling drained, exhausted and empty, but we must keep going. 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 our energy to remain alive. 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, then I have something special to share with you. Being a stubborn cookie and refusing to take meds for my immunity issue, I had to find my own way to stay well and have energy, the natural way.

This is just a little sharing of many of my self experiments. Take what resonates with you, dismiss what does not.

Now.

 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. 

 How long do you think you are going to last this way? What is going to happen to our accounts with no deposits made? I believe bankruptcy is the word here. I have learned that it is the same with our energy bank.

So.

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 

- Go to nature: grounding, taking a walk on the beach, running through a field, hugging a tree, etc, it all activates our inner G.

- Detox/Cleanse. Give your body a holiday.

- Meditate. Rest. Get quiet.

 

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

Tools: blender, gym, sauna/steam, motivation.

Side effects:  feeling calm, happier state of being, lightness in the body, clarity of the mind, feeling more yourself and being connected to the Source.

 

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. 

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

  • Spend some time alone each morning. Meditate or just breathe and be. Sun gazing at the sun rise, even for a few minutes, activates our DNA.

  • Take 100 mg niacin (Vit B3) before 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. Get quiet. Listen to the voice of your heart.

  • Make a large re-charge smoothie by mixing fresh pineapple with soaked chia/flax seeds and some greens. Add some spirulina, raw cacao, acai berry or any other superfoods 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 healthy liquids into your body every few hours, such as fresh juices, healing teas (matcha or home made yogi tea), veggie broth.

  • Stretch your body (and mind) in the evening to a calming music. See yourself where and how you wish to be - healthy and harmonious, abundant and free.

  • Stay silent as much as you can. Talking takes a lot of energy. Value your words.

  • Have a gentle enema in the evening.

  • Dream and envision great stuff! Feel you vibration rise.

  • 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 share more on the subject of staying fit and well natural way in my first book Chocolate Revolution.

  • ps.  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, just have fun with it.

 

 

 

How I Met the Cacao Tree that Changed my Life.

20150831_084903~2.jpg

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.

New Earth 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 sugar. We can have 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 way we feel.

 

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. 

  

Sugars: There are many kinds of sugar that are far healthier than white, refined sugar. New Earth Alternatives include: coconut, palm, and date sugar, raw coconut crystals, jaggery, and carazuc (a name for organic coconut flower sugar), just to 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  to make conscious choices that serve and support the best in you and in our world.

If you are vegan or wish to avoid any kind of sugar, yet still fancy some treats, I suggest medjool dates or seedless raisins blended into a sweet mass. 

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, healing 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.

There is more on the subject in Chocolate Revolution, the first healing book that I released a few years ago.

DREAM CREAM. Dreaming of a plant based cream?

Cashew Cream.jpg

Warning: this yummy treat can be addictive and cause a serious feeling of satisfaction!

Dream Cream is made of cashews.

It can be used on cakes, enjoyed as a dessert or turned into a super-duper nice cream, or as a filling for our raw chocolate bars.

Let your Imagination go wild.

It is the best thing we can do with cashews really.

Ingredients:

1 cup of soaked Cashews

2/3 cups of good water

1 Vanilla stick (or 1/4 t of vanilla seeds)

1-2 T Maple syrup or Coconut nectar

1 T Lucuma Powder

A Pinch of Himalayan salt

Raw Cacao Powder for dusting and for the lower layer (if you make dessert like the one on the picture)

This is how we do it:

Soak cashews for a few hours, not more than 7.

Let them dry on a clean towel for a few minutes. Place cashews together with the rest of the ingredients in the blender. 

Give it a nice spin. It blends very easily, turning into a yummy creamy mass that tastes like tiramisu cream.

Tips: if you are making a dessert like the one on the picture, make the bottom layer by mixing any healthy  sweetener with raw cacao powder. For example, a table spoon of Maple syrup with a tea spoon of cacao powder. When done, pour the chocolate cream into the serving glass to create the bottom layer.

Please taste the cream before you let it leave the blender to make sure it tastes just the way you dream it to.

If you want to give it a color, you can use matcha tea powder for that lovely green color, or our legendary beetroot juice (or powder) for that sexy Valentine color.

ENJOY.

P.S. Please remember to consume nuts in moderation. 

People who are magnesium sensitive and have nut allergies should avoid cashews.

FOODS THAT WILL ROCK YOUR WORLD

    

  

          My entire life I have been searching for foods that act like medicine.

 When we are living in a challenged body we are not as concerned about the palate pleasures.

We want to feel well and that desire overrides our weakness for yummy treats that taste ridiculously delicious but in reality, they are just empty 'palate teasers' (at best) and serious 'chemical bombs' (at worst). Nothing looks as good as awesome feels! Nothing!

 On my never ending search for medicinal foods I have come across some seriousedible 'magic.' What is really impressive is that some of them taste better than anyone expected. I was thrilled - here I was, all ready to eat bitter and horrid that will be medicinal for my system... and what did I find? Medicines that tasted like... chocolate andcaramels.

 

 Here they are, simply magical food substancesthat rocked my world. I wish to share this information with you so, perhaps, you too get inspired and reconsider what you call food. I mention here just a few.

 MAGIC SLIMMING FOODS:

-Yacon Syrup

This amazing chocolate looking and sweet tasting heavenly fluid comes from a root of a plant that grows in Andes mountains. It is low GI and it does have the power to make us slimmer. The phrase that is used on most sites to describe this power is "significant weight loss." Isn't that a good news?
What to do with it?
Makechocolate spread out of it, use it in your desserts instead of any other sweetener, pour it over your porridge or a toast in the morning. Let it rock your world!

- Thai Basil Seeds

Such miracles these tiny seeds are. They expand in water like crazy. One spoon of dry seeds become a full plate of wet cute looking yumminess that bursts in your mouth atprecisely the right moment (like caviar.)
 They are full of fiber. Good-bye constipation! If only that. Thai Basil seeds are also a potent antioxidant and antiviral to mention just a few benefits.
 What to do with them? 
 Soak them for ten minutes(one tablespoon of seeds in one cup of water) and get creative. Slap that gorgeous bubliness into porridge OR make dessert out of them. There is a fabulous FoodisLove Dessert recipe in this section for you.
 Color them purple with fresh beetroot juice, or green with matcha tea, add some healthy sweetener and enjoy an exciting detox dessert. Holly-shmolly-guacamolly!

- Raw Cacao

How amazing is that on top of zillion of other things that cacao has to offer to our human system, it also promotes weight loss. Did you know that most of the weight loss products have cacao powder in them? Thatis for a good reason. Cacao is reducing our appetite and making us feel full, not to mention -  seriously elated and happy. What to do with it?
 Ohhh. I like this magical substance so much, I wrote a book about it.

Here is an idea for beginners: mix raw cacao powder with the yacon syrup, and have your self a yummy slimming dessert.


 You can make your own chocolate cakes, brownies and truffles. There are plenty of recipes to chose from.

DNA ACTIVATING FOODS

Any super foods are fabulous for us. By that I mean they are good for our brain cells, for our DNA, for our blood, and well being in general. They are not some empty palate-pleasers like most ordinary modern foods are. They have the power to heal, to align,  and to change our experience of life.

If you are new to super foods, please take it slowly, introducing them gently to your diet and watch the alchemical reaction between you and these magical foods. You just might find yourself thinking, feeling, and functioning better than you ever thought you could.

- Maca

Super powerful powder that is made from a root of a plant. It has been called a "Peruvian ginseng." It is a mood elevating, skin rejuvenating, hormone balancing magical substance that rocked many worlds. It can be white, red and black, and it is spectacular! Please do your own research, begin with very little, especially of you have any hormone issues.

- Lukuma

It has been made from a fruit of a tree that grows in Peru, Ecuador and Chile. It has been called "The Gold of the Incas." It isa super powerful immunity booster, low GI sweetener. Yes, it tastes sweet!  Recent studiesshow it to be a serious anti-aging substance. Mixed with soaked cashews and a healthy sweetener, it will make the best tasting cream on the planet.

- Mucuna

Oh, this one. This isa serious wake-me-up substance. It comes from a velvet bean grown in India. It has been used in Ayurveda for healing numerous dysfunctions. It has incredible compounds that make it almost psychedelic. 
 In fact many people are afraid to take it and avoid it for that reason.  It is incredibly powerful, i suggest you start with it very easy, if you are not familiar with it.
 I have been taking mucuna for many years and all I can say is this: Mucuna activates pineal gland and our DNA, taken in small and wise doses. Recommended start dose for beginners is 1/8 of a tea spoon.

What to do with all of these foods?
 Add super foods to your smoothies, to your chocolate treats.

Let your DNA know that you are alive and conscious, that you want to heal, that you want to expand.
