Following are a few of my favorite recipes for making Muesli, Protein Shakes and Nut Milks.  Experiment to include your own tastes – it is fun, nutritious and rewarding.


For muesli, just look at your GenoType for nuts, grains and fruits that are good for you.  Go to Henry’s or Whole Foods and buy bag of each.  I like dried apricots (cut in small pieces), sunflower seeds, stone cut oatmeal, almonds, pecans and dried cranberries.  Just mix them together and put in the refrigerator.  Take ½ cup and top with yogurt or make a small protein shake and pour on top.  Yum.

Protein Shakes:

I have two favorites.  One is the Glycemic Foundation Rice Protein Powder which has 11 grams of fiber and 10 grams of protein.  The other is a Rice Protein Powder as well, but has 6 grams of fiber and 21 grams of protein and it has a few ingredients to help detox the liver – always a great idea.  I use both and sell both.  Most of the protein powders in the markets have been hydrolyzed, which makes the powder act like MSG on the brain.   When I did my research, if it did not say on the container, I emailed the manufacturer and many were proud to say that yes they used that process.  They really need to do their homework better.

I mix one scoop of protein powder with water and frozen raspberries and sometimes I add more fiber like ground Chia Seeds or Galactan.  Just pour some over the muesli – very healthy and nutritious.

Nut Milks:

Any of the nut milks can be made by placing 1 cup of raw almonds or other nuts in a blender, add 1 cup of clean water and blend well.  Add 3 more cups of water and then put in the refrigerator for 8 hours.  Strain to remove the nuts – or not and then you can add stevia or xylitol to sweeten and/or add a few drops of almond extract if you wish.  Compare the ingredients to store bought brands.  This is a winner.
