The word "healthy" means "heal thy" self. The definition of the word "recipe" states: "a method to attain a desired end." We like to think of them as:
"Heal Thy Self Recipes for a Long and Happy Life!"
The archetype of the superhero was created out of an aspiration to achieve extraordinary levels of strength and might. Who is to say the human body is not suppose to feel such supernatural powers?
"If we can think it we can make it our reality."
Perhaps our path, as we evolve, is to discover our ability to increase longevity and to master our own body temples!
If your reading these words, you are most likely wanting to feel the highest health possible, using "diet" and recipes as a way to achieve an energy that will lead you to make healthier choices in other aspects of your life. We believe a healthy diet can be the first step towards clarity and manifestation of your true desires and purpose in this world. Ultimately, we are talking about a healthy diet plan that will clean, clear and rebuild your health, allowing new and more positive thinking about yourself and the world we are all apart of.
Super health supports your greatness, truth and potential, living life in the highest way possible!
Over the years, however, we have come up with a few of our own recipes. Use the links below to move to a particular section.
We believe in "liquid nutrition." It is important to begin the day with lots of liquids and blended foods that rehydrate the cells, providing immediate nutritive energy and bowel movement.
First thing, is to hydrate the body with spring water and lemon. Next, are any micro-nutrients. These are great to take when the stomach is empty. I usually take them straight mixed into a small glass of water. On any given day this might include, camu camu, msm, aloe vera, kelp, Vitamineral Green, chlorella or others.
After that, we often like to start our day off with juicing a nice glass of fresh juice. It is important to get greens and alkaline foods into your diet and this is an excellent way to do so. See our favorite juicing recipes that are also great for detoxing before any meals.
Our raw drink recipes usually always include herbal tea recipes as the base. This provides full on nutrition that is easily assimilated and blended within a yummy beverage. Though, not considered "raw vegan", herbal teas are an important source of liquid nutrients that are part of our superfood lifestyle. For those who are strict raw vegans, you can make sun tea without stove heating or many people use herbs in raw powdered form.
The Chinese tonics and Ayurvedic herbs are an essential part of a superhealthy diet plan. We incorporate these longevity teas whenever possible.
As we mentioned, we promote eating less, but making what you do eat count as far as optimal nutrition and calories needed.
We usually tend to eat 1 or 2 main meals a day, depending on season or energy expended.
I find that eating a big heavy meal in the middle of the day weighs me down and is not really necessary when I can make a blended drink or raw soup recipe that digests faster and gives me the vitality required to accomplish amazing things in a relaxed, harmonious way.
An enzyme rich drink of my homemade coconut kefir recipe is also an excellent way to get friendly flora.
My husband also loves to drink kombucha for a mid day energy beverage or pour it into a wine glass for an alcohol substitute. See his kombucha recipe for basics on how to make. I personally prefer rejuvelac instead of kombucha.
Later in the day, to start a main entree, I might decide to make a nice salad with some wild edible greens, like miners lettuce or salad burnet, whatever is conveniently located outside my door, in the garden or picked on a hike in the country.
Perhaps our raw kale salad recipe with some homemade croutons is just the thing before a main meal. It is great all by itself or aside heavier nut based raw foods. I also love to add home sprouted super sprouts that are fresh with life-force to my salad combo's.
We use nuts and seeds in pate's, burgers, taco's and our raw hummus recipe to add a little more fat and protein. My husbands raw sprouted buckwheat pizza crust recipe can provide a scrumptious, raw, power packed pizza when you get the pizza craving! He is also particularly talented at making raw gourmet macaroni and cheese recipe with raw cheddar cheese and raw pasta.
When I eat raw vegan recipes, I like to also eat them with some kind of fermented food, to increase digestion with even more enzymes.
(Also see our fermented food recipes for more info on a great new book for anyone new to the world of fermented and cultured foods.)
Although we promote a "high" raw food diet, we also on occasion eat some cooked foods, see our healthy cooking recipes. When we do eat cooked foods, we like to also eat a portion of raw or fermented foods with them to aid digestion.
I gave up eating bread along time ago, but sometimes I get cravings for it or something that is salty and crunchy.
I have also created one of the best raw granola recipes that we also like to eat as a cereal for breakfast or a mid day snack, especially helpful as a "comfort food" if you need it!
Our super healthy recipes, of course, include occasion indulgences. Sometimes I will actually eat a "dessert" as a mid day meal.
Most of our healthy dessert recipes are superfood fuel for the body, so you can savor their richness, yet use their ingredients to power your day, the superhero way!
Depending on the person, cacao can be somewhat stimulating and, therefore, should be honored and respectfully blended into raw vegan recipes with certain herbs and cushioned with fats, like coconut oil or nuts and seeds! Or try using carob instead! Visit our carob-coconut cream pie recipe for a delicious way to use carob powder.
Enjoy these raw vegan recipes with your family and friends. Have a raw vegan week and experiment with how this food makes you FEEL!!
