In My Kitchen - November Edition. Of course most of my entries you will see what's been going on in and around my kitchen but I figured this would be a good one to catch up on some random food things!
New Earth Superconscious Living Almond Courage. I have to say this took me a while to appreciate and understand! At first I was eating the contents of the bag one at a time. I think I was a little thrown off at the texture of the dried Mulberries...not completely sure but I just wasn't totally loving them! But then I had that Ah-HA Moment! If you eat them by the small handful and not one by one and get all or at least several ingredients in your mouth at once - they overall flavor was much better. More tasty! Complex yet real! This way...I really liked it! This product is vegan, it's RAW, and it dandy to have on hand at the office for mid-afternoons! I think it would be great as a cereal topping, too...but I just like snacking on them! Ingredients include: organic activated almonds, organic sweetened cacao nibs, organic
mulberries, organic goji berries, organic coconut chips, organic yacon
syrup, organic mesquite pod, organic reishi, wildcrafted himalayan pink
Another thing in my kitchen lately are Sesame Sticks. The ones I get come from my local Herb Shop. They are Non-GMO and contain Wheat Flour, Barley Flour, Soy Bean Oil, Sesame Seeds, Bulgur Wheat, Beet Powder, Turmeric, and Salt.
These are another great snack or salad topping!

Next Up...Maca Powder from Foods Alive. I'm still a novice when it comes to Maca. I have been tinkering with it a bit and hope to add some success stories to my site soon!
This Maca Powder is
rich in calcium, magnesium, phosphorous and iron, and contains trace
minerals, including zinc, iodine, copper, selenium, bismuth, manganese
and silica, as well as B vitamins. It also contains four alkaloids
proven in scientific investigation to nourish the endocrine glands.
It has a nutty taste, blends well
with cereals, ice creams, juices, milks, yogurts, pies, cakes,
smoothies, cookie fillings and desserts and can be added to a variety of
recipes. 2-3 tsps per day is the suggested use of the powder.
It's been a LONG time since I have dehydrated anything in my dehydrator. I think it's because I am longing for a NEW Dehydrator. I really want a square one...not this round one I have from Nesco that I have had for YEARS.
Regardless I will be pushing myself to use it more in the coming months. I will certainly report back here with my efforts.
Of course, the ultimate would be an Excalibur but I can't see myself spending like 300 bucks on one!
I know I have mentioned it before on my blog but it's worth another mention that is for sure! The Raw Protein Marley Coffee Blend from Garden of Life. I'm totally LOVING it and will have more ideas and recipes very soon. So far my favorite quick and easy recipe is a scoop of this in 1 C of Almond Milk (or Cashew Milk) with 2 Tablespoons of Chocolate Peanut Butter from the Peanut Butter Company. But I will say I am super excited about the whole line thus far and will have TONS of ideas in many upcoming posts! I might even start contributing to their blog! VERY EXCITING! This among many other things are what's new and or HOT in my kitchen so far this month! How about you!? I could go on and on about tons of other things, too, but I will save those for future posts!
