Description:
Perhaps you thought about raw food snacks but couldn’t come up with any ideas. Staying satisfied between meals is the secret to succeeding in eating raw. The convenience factor plays a major part in this so, be prepared by making snacks ahead of time and never leave home without packing something for the road. Be sure that you have some raw food snacks available while grocery shopping. Also, carry snacks in your car, your gym bag, your office drawer and in handy packets in the fridge. Here is a great snack to try out...

Goji berries grow on an evergreen shrub found in temperate and subtropical regions in China, Mongolia and in the Himalayas in Tibet. They are in the nightshade (Solonaceae) family. Goji berries are usually found dried. They are shriveled red berries that look like red raisins.


Ingredients:
1 ½ cup almonds (soaked and drained)
2 cups dates (soak for at least one hour)
½ cup sunflower seeds (soak for at least one hour)
½ cup goji berries
½ cup cacao nibs
½ cup almond butter (or Tahini)
1 cup raisins (soaked in 1 cup water for at least 1 hour)*
4 T. flax seeds in 2 T. water (for at least one hour)
3 tsp. carob powder (or cacao powder)
3 tsp. spirulina and Chlorella combined
1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
Pinch of cardamom
Coconut to roll balls in



Directions:
Place almonds and dates in a food processor.
Process until small chunks. Add to a large bowl along with sunflower seeds, goji berries, cacao nibs, almond butter, raisins, raisin soak water*, flax seeds, carob powder, spirulina/chlorella powder, cinnamon, and cardamom. Mix well for a couple of minutes. Form into 2” balls, roll in coconut and chill for at least 30 minutes.

*I find that I don’t add all the raisin soak water – the dough gets too sticky for my liking. I just add half of the water and a little more if necessary to form a nice moist, unsticky ball. These balls can be dehydrated at 105 for 12 to 15 hours, but I just like them the way they are.

’Tis a Grand Soft Day, Thank God
We had a Orange alert in Ireland due to storm forecast and my sister Roisin came across this explanation of Irish rain which i just loved. If you live in Ireland or have visited you’ll know what Colm Toibin is writing about here. If you live in Texas this will most likely be new to you! ‘If the Inuits have fifty words for snow, the Irish have about a hundred variations of ‘Shite, I’m after getting soaked’.

Recipe
Healthy Red Potato Salad
Category: Salads
Description: This salad will be very satisfying with a green salad with a few raw vegies and perhaps a little feta cheese and light dressing. Red Potato salads are delicious especially during the summer and there is an endless variety of tastes when you try different herbs and vegetables.

Red potatoes are perfectly healthy, as long as you don't spoil them by adding unhealthy condiments, such as sour cream. Did you know that red potatoes are lower glycemic because it has resistant starch. Red potatoes are higher in nutrients than other potatoes. Resistant starch occurs when some complex carbohydrates, like rice and potatoes are cooked and then chilled. It is starch that "resists" digestion enough to make it slow burning so it keeps your blood sugar level. Your appetite suppressing hormone rises and you stay fuller longer which makes it a great midday meal or part of a main meal.
