RECIPES:

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.

Muesli: 

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.
