RAW Green Pea Mint Hummus with crudités

I love peas! I love hummus. Well here is the result of those two desires, my new love. This wonderfully refreshing Green Pea Mint Hummus. I used my Go Raw Sprouted Super Simple Seeds and made the base of this creamy yumminess. This hummus makes a great alternative to the regular chick pea version. One reason I love the recipe is because it’s lower in carbs and high in protein, because of the sprouted pumpkin and sunflower seeds and the seeds being sprouted makes this a very digestible treat, loaded with enzymes

It is great on veggies, as a spread or you can add it to raw veggie pasta with a little olive oil for a nice lunch or dinner.

Enjoy and Set the Table with Love.

Grilled Peach Kale and Quinoa Salad with a Grilled Peach and Ginger dressing

img_3530

I am a Georgia peaches.  I love my peaches. When I was a child, my great great aunt had a peach tree in her backyard, amongst many other fruit trees. She also had an apple and cherry tree. She would make jams, preserves, cobblers and the best crusty peach pie ever, all from scratch.

Yesterday my husband and I was getting ready for my son’s birthday party. He turned 15.
Wow where did the time go. As we were driving along, I saw a local farmer, that I see regularly on the side of the road, selling all of nature goodness. I decided this time to stop by and I picked up the prettiest and most fragrant Georgia peaches. I had to use them up before we went on vacation, so I came up with this amazing smoky, sweet, tart and crunchy salad.

I used Go Raw Sprouted Simple Seeds to give it crunch, the dressing is sweet, tart and smoky. The grilling of the peaches also brings out their nature sweetness. I hope you will enjoy this recipe as much as I did today.

Peach Mango Smoothie 11 grams of protein, From? Wait for it…

I am in love with Go Raw foods. I discovered their sprouted watermelon seed and how much vegan protein you can get from these little seed is amazing, just one ounce of these little babies will give you 11 grams of protein with only 4 grams of carbohydrates, say yes, please and thank you!!

Here’s the facts:

1 cup of dried seeds containing 30.6g, but I would suggest that because watermelon seeds are high in calories. A cup of watermelon seeds in about 600 calories, but this recipe only call for 1 oz. which is only a 170 calories.

Also, watermelon seeds are also loaded with several of the B vitamins. The American Cancer Society reports that B vitamins are necessary for converting food into energy and other important bodily functions.
