Raw Almond Cherry Macaroons 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Cherries can be sweet or sour, red or black. My favorite varieties are the big black ones. We used to enjoy “Bing” cherries I commonly now see a variety called “Lapins”. Cherries contain anthocyanins, the red pigment in berries. Cherry anthocyanins have been shown to reduce pain and inflammation. Anthocyanins are also potent antioxidants. In addition, they appear to significantly lower blood levels of cholesterol and triglycerides. Cherries are considered a warm food and are great for increasing circulation. They make an excellent detoxifying food, helping the body eliminate uric acid and cleanse the kidneys. They contain ellagic acid, an anticancer compound. So, not only do they taste fabulous, they are also very healthy. A word of caution, cherries are considered to be part of the “Dirty Dozen” when it comes to fruits and vegetables that have been found to contain the highest levels of pesticide residues. So, it is vitally important to choose only organically grown cherries. They may be considerably more expensive, but your health is worth every extra penny you spend.
Fresh cherries are best stored in a bag in the fruit drawer of your refrigerator. They can also be pitted and frozen into serving sized portions. Fruit leathers made with cherries or combined with other fruits are an excellent way to prolong cherry season. Try these tasty Raw Almond Cheery Macroons - Sandra Butler


Ingredients:
2 C Dried Coconut (Unsweetened)
1/2 C Almonds, processed into a coarse meal
1/2 C Dried Cherries, chopped
1/2 C Agave
1/4 C Coconut Oil (cold pressed virgin)
1 t. Almond Extract*


Directions:
Place almonds in food processor and process until a coarse meal texture is achieved. Add coconut, dried cherries, coconut oil agave and extract*(not raw – you can substitute raw vanilla powder). Process until mixture starts to hold together. I use a tablespoon to scoop the mixture out and press into a ball. Place on dehydrator sheets and dehydrate until desired consistency is achieved. 8 – 10 hours. I like them dry on the outside but still a little soft on the inside!



Servings: Makes approximately 2 dozen cookies.

Wellness Tip
Foot health
Many foot problems result from poorly fitted shoes. A few buying tips: Try shopping for shoes in the middle of the day, as feet tend to swell most at this time. Strive for about a 1/2 inch of space between the end of the foot and the tip of the shoe. Wear the type of socks or stockings that will be worn with the shoes. And finally, consider having both feet measured. Feet can vary in size.

Fresh Tomato Carrot Soup
Category: Soup
Description: This is a most delicious tomato soup. I prefer to use fresh tomatoes but you may use canned if you prefer. I like to make a country loaf of gluten free bread to serve with this but a chive and goat cheese corn bread or French bread would work as well.
