Sprouting Chart

Making our own sprouts is super easy and fun for the whole family. I always get satisfaction from watching the little guys grow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Eating sprouts is one of the best ways to get living foods in your diet. Not only are sprouts clearly raw, they are alive and growing. I’ve read that the sprout can have 500x more nutrients than the plant it grows into. Pretty awesome!  So enjoy broccoli sprouts, red clover sprouts, mung bean and lentil sprouts, alfalfa sprouts, and many more.

Quinoa Crisp Chocolate bunnies, Red Intuition Salad, Red Cabbage Wraps / Baked, The Easter Elixir

Here are the recipes from Episode 26 ‘The Easter Call’

Quinoa Crisp Chocolate bunnies

1 cup cacao powder
1 cup coconut oil (cold pressed organic)
½  cup coconut sugar
¼ cup raw honey, or raw agave or maple syrup
½ cup quinoa crisps
⅓ cup organic grass fed whey protein (optional)
1/ 2 cup goji berries (optional)

Melt coconut oil by placing the glass jar in hot water for 5-10 minutes. Combine cacao powder, coconut oil, coconut sugar, and your choice of liquid sweetener in blender. Add organic grass fed whey protein if you choose to, totally optional. Blend until smooth and creamy. Stir in quinoa crisps and/or goji berries and pour into bunny molds, or a glass baking dish for regular square cut fudge.

Red Intuition Salad
½ head red cabbage, chopped
1 head red leaf lettuce, chopped
2 red sweet peppers (the mini ones), chopped
1 cup cilantro, chopped

Salad Dressing
Yield: 2 large salads

Ingredients:
¾ cup cold pressed olive oil
1 tomato
1 Tbsp GN Original Protein Powder
1 Tbsp nama shoyu
1 Tbsp mustard seeds
1 cayanne pepper
2 Tbsp water

Place all ingredients in blender and blend until well mixed. Chop up salad ingredients and put in large bowl.  Pour desired amount of dressing over salad mixture. I like to cover the bowl with a plate and shake it until dressing is evenly dispersed onto veggies. A guest favorite; bright, flavorful, cleansing.

Red Cabbage Wraps / Baked

Yield: 6-9 wraps
Prep time:5 min
cook time: 45 min

Ingredients:
I head red cabbage
1 cup quinoa
1 bundle Lacinato (dino)kale
1 tomato
1 red bell pepper or 2 sweet peppers
2 green onions
2 tsp chili powder
1 ½  Tbsp Nama Shoyu
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp black pepper
⅛ cup organic parmesan or asiago, or goat feta cheese (optional)

In medium saucepan, combine 2 cups water and 1 cup quinoa. Bring to boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 11-14 min until water is absorbed. While quinoa is cooking, chop kale, tomato and green onion. When quinoa is finished cooking, stir in raw diced veggies. The heat will blanch the veggies perfectly.

Cut off the stem end of the cabbage if it makes it easier to remove full leaves.  Do your best to remove full cabbage leaves, fill with quinoa mixture, roll and place open side down in 9×12 glass baking pan.

Bake on 375 for 30 min. YUM! Serve with fresh salad.

The Easter Elixir
4 tsp coconut water powder
2 tsp acai powder
2 cups water

Combine all ingredients, shake and enjoy.

3)  Seek Out Sustainable Toy Makers –  we like BeginAgainToys.com.

2) Seeds and Bulbs are Fun For Kids. Kids love planting and spending time with you. I always loved planting tulip bulbs with my mom. Giving bulbs or seeds helps illustrate the magic of life, and it can be a fun project for the whole family to beautify the home.
