Fill U Up Energy/Protien Pucks

Hey there, I know I talked about the Fill U Up Pucks back in November. I hope you signed up for emails to be told when I post things. If not now is a great time to do that. Over in the right hand sidebar. Ok Well Here is what they look like.
021
The top layer here is the ones I put Greens+ in and the bottom ones are the ones without. I use those for the husband because he does not like green stuff. Ok next up was the ingredients.
020
Ok and now for the proportions. Which you can play with for things you like and omit stuff you do not. Just by adding cinnamon you get such a change. Change is good, it breaks up the day after day routines we get stuck in sometimes.
So here is a basic mixture. I split in half or in fours and add different stuff for a little pep in my life. Hahaha! Yes sometimes seasoning or flavorings can do that for me. It is nice to have things hum drum.
Ingredients:
1 3/4 C. Dates
1/4 C. Water
1 Tbsp.+ 1 tsp. Coconut oil
1/4 C. nut butter ( Tahini, sunflower, almond, cashew.)
1 C. Almonds
1 C. Mixed Seeds
( I use 1/3 each Sunflower, Pumpkin, & Hemp. But, I have also added 1/3 C of a mix i make half & half Chia + Flax seed, Pine nuts or Sesame seeds)
1/3 C. Coconut flakes
I blend each thing separately until it is course chopped, like other store bought ones.
Depends on how much chewing you want to do.
After each thing is chopped I pour it in a bowl.
The last thing processed because it is sticky and messy I do the dates, water and coconut oil. Add them to the bowl of nuts and seeds, and then mix.
Form into pucks and layer with wax paper.
I store them in snack size bags in the frig. About 6 or 8 to a bag.
Makes about 32 pucks 1 1/2″ round
I carry snack bags of them in my purse for those times. To avoid junk food in check out lines and fast food joints. They last for a month or so.
Hey be sure to leave a comment. If you make them let me know that too. Listen if you do not comment or like I don’t know you came. Kinda sad right… I am praying for you right now and if you are starting a lifestyle change you succeed. No diet ever works, you are loved just the way you are by a mighty God and me. Have a great New Years Weekend and Be healthy this year to come In Jesus Holy Name!!!

Buckwheat Groats Veggie Patties

Hi there,
I am happy you came back to see the recipe. I did start the pattie yesterday. Having been sick with some kind of bad cold bug, I could not finish it in one day as usual. That is a key part in making of the patties, all the ingredients should be cooled before mixing. I made the groats with 2 cups water one cup groats (just like most grains). I sauteed the veggies, and refrigerated both, once done. That was yesterday. Today I just mixed it together , formed the patties, and baked. Oh, I also added grill marks for the purpose of show. You would hardly know these were not meat. Once you put your toppings on it even the texture was perfect. I eat them bunless because the groats are enough starch I believe. For me and for being Alkaline that works. Oh and no egg in this one so it is a alkaline dream!!!

So here is the recipe…
1 1/2 C Buckwheat groats cooked and cooled ( use stock as liquid instead of water)
Diced Onion 2/3 C
Diced Green & Red pepper combined to make 2/3C,
Finely minced Garlic 2 or more Tbsp
Diced Mushroom 2/3 C (but not if making alkaline)
Parsley, Real salt, and pepper to taste
Eggplant, Zucchini, Summer squash, Ect. You get the picture, lots can be added.
3 Tbsp of flax, chia, and hemp seeds Ground (I do this in a coffee mill I use for herbs and seed) to replace egg. I do not add water
Saute the veggies in about 2 Tbsp olive oil. Remember you are not browning or cooking to mush, this takes very little time.
Once cooled combine the groats with the veggies and add the ground seeds.
Form the mixture into patties and place on a baking pan coated with olive oil.
(I spray the top side with olive oil as well)
Then do the grill marks using a skewer dipped in Kitchen bouquet.
When you flip you can do the second side!
Bake at 425* for 10 minutes on each side.

I hope you enjoy these. I had one for lunch, they are filling. YUMMY! Let me know what you think. It is always nice to hear from you. If you don’t comment or like I never know you even came. I am thankful to be able to share with you.

Control, Self Discipline, Body and soul!!!

Selfdisciplineuggysburtnest
Temptations are real. struggles are too. Thankfully God allows us choices. We can choose to eat healthy and do healthy activities. Or we can choose not to. He allows us to make ourselves happy or to please Him. Eating, drinking, smoking all produce a great effect for the moment. But now you feel fat, now you can’t breath, now the guilt has set in and you feel worse. Just get back up and try again. No matter how many times I slip up… I have to focus on it is a lifestyle. Our bodies were created perfect. Our choices have compromised somethings, but we have today and we can make the best of it. There is no magic pill to take. Dieting is a million dollar business for some. You need to aerobic exercise everyday. Using, moving your large muscle groups. Doing atleast 20 minutes of that daily. That is key. I have gone up from 20 minutes to 1 hour now. Find a lifestyle change you can do and workup from there. I know that being an Alkalarian is hard work and it is not always an option when eating other than at home but you can make it fit if you truly want. And if you are reading this and you want a change then you can make it happen. Our culture is indulgent and self satisfying, we need to look to cultures of old and see the ways in which they lived. Eating was not how we see it today. Even smoking and drinking we abuse . We over do everything. Well enough of my ravings today.
¸¸.♡ • .◄°))))►◄◄°))))►◄ ¯ `•.¸¸.◄°))))►◄  Today is Day 148 of this year… we only get 365… we got 217 left and they are not guaranteed. Have you accepted God’s free Gift? (Jesus) Are you prepared if Jesus comes today? How will you answer when He ask what you have done with your life?

Spaghetti Squash With Everything

016
Wow this stuff is great. I remember having it a while back about 10 years ago when I started the Alkalarian lifestyle. But then I slipped back into life and lost my way from it. Now I am back into it. I guess it never left me I just left it. Everything reminds me of God. Well, Let me be the first to repent of my evil eatting this world has led me to. I am back on my Alkalarian way!!! I feel better and I am slowly going to get my 5K a day back on. This spaghetti squash that led me to write today is so versatile, It can be used in every way a pasta can. Soups, baked, fried, anywhere you would normally use pasta. Which is not bad in moderation but why bother with it when you can have this which is good for you. Just an update on how things are going here at alkalarian central…  Recipes to follow…Peace out!!!

Living and well

Wow I did not realize it has been so long.

Here we are… At Church Resurrection Sunday.
But that is not what a came to post today. I am still dropping weight through exercise but I realize the food going in is the problem. I have studied many different lifestyle changes. I wont call them diets because there is none you can do and just go back to eating whatever you want and stay skinny. Back when I first came to Florida I heard about the Ph Miracle on tv. I was 175 or so. After doing the plan and balancing my ph I was able to run a 3k 6 days a week and went down to 135. Now as i said I reverted back to eating whatever and came to Hialeah…Cuban food will do it to you every time! I am starting it all over I re-read both books I have on it and searched the web high and low for all the info again. I used to buy a snack bar at whole foods they were greens+ bars. Which I really liked for a late afternoon pick me up at work, before dinner. They are kinda on the pricey side being 2.50 a bar or so. SO…
I decided to make my own. I have made seed and nut bars before but used sugar and dried fruit and nuts which are mostly forbidden in a PH Balanced lifestyle. So here is my recipe tweeked.

Before Greens+

Before Greens+

006

Ready for the refrigerator

Power of Plus Green Seed & nut Energy Bars (adapted from Green Kitchen)
Makes around 16 bars
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup dried shredded coconut
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
4 tbs chia seeds
20 fresh medjool dates, pitted
6 tbsp coconut oil, room temperature
Sprinkle over after blended
1/4 c Almond flour
2 tbsp Greens+ (optional)

1. In a food processor or high speed blender, pulse the dry ingredients quickly. Do not over-process, you want it a little crunchy. Place the mixture in a bowl and set aside. Add half of the dates and the rest of the wet ingredients to the food processor. Run the processor for 30 seconds, then add the rest of the dates one at a time while the machine is running until the mixture is smooth. You might have to help out by stirring around a few times with a fork or add a dash of water.
2. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients, add almond flour and Greens+ and stir until well combined (I used my hands to really get the mixture well combined!). Press the mixture evenly into a 11 x 7-inch baking dish, make sure it becomes quite compact. Place in the fridge for about 30 minutes. Cut into bars. Wrap them in paper and store in an air-tight container. Will keep around a week in the fridge.Can also be stored in the freezer for longer period of time.
And you will get some crumbles good for sprinkling in what you like or even just out of a snack bag!

all finished

Vegan Coconut Ginger Soup

Vegan Coconut Ginger Soup

Vegan Coconut Ginger Soup

I will for the sake of argument call my soup this. Pictured I added beef, For dinner I had it with fish and another time with chicken. Now I can tell you originally I made this with mushroom as the substance (meat) of the dish.
Ingredients
1 tblsp coconut oil to saute
onion celery carrot  cabbage about 1/2 cup each
1 tblsp garlic minced
1 tblsp ginger minced
2 tsp cayenne pepper
16 oz vegetable stock
1/2 C coconut milk
Simmer for 10 minutes or til ready to eat. I have been hungry and eaten it as soon as it was done as well as had it left over good from start to finish and so many options as far as what you can add for substance.  Dry Shitake mushrooms soaked in wine, chicken, beef, shrimp, fish, even just shredded coconut.
I am learning new things every day from my newest Jamaican friend. Today I learned about how to make coconut oil. Be looking for that in up coming blog updates.

Watermelon Pizza

Finished

Watermelon Pizza

Hello, Here is a great 4th of July cool down dessert. You can have the slices and toppings ready and do a build your own or I just went ahead and made them up. One for a friend, One to bring to my Mom’s and One for me to have here. So I had the containers ready to go, and built them right in the container. Now looking back I know that you should cut them ahead of putting them in the container, because when you cut you end up marking the container.

The process begins

20140630 043

Squeeze mango seed to juice like a sauce Then the strawberry pepperoni and Blueberry olives.

I took the seed of the mango after cutting off most of the meat and squeezed some juices on the watermelon to look like a sauce. Next slice up the strawberries and spread them like pepperoni, The blueberries I used like olives however if you cut them they look great too, as you can see in the picture. I tried all different ways on the three of the pizzas so it really is a any way you want kinda thing.  I sliced mango and put it on before the other fruit and I liked it that way best.20140630 046 20140630 044
Yum Top it with some shredded coconut to look like the cheese. And all good cooks know it is not finished til you add the herbs and spices. O:) For that out to the garden to pick some mint and stevia. Sprinkle those on top and spritz with lemon juice. This is great served chilled. But I have to say they are good any way but… BEST Shared with friends!!!
