“Raw” Corn Chips 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Corn nutritionally, it contains folate, phosphorus, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, manganese, protein, potassium, fiber, thiamine, and panthotenic acid. It also has Vitamins A, C, E and K. That's an impressive list of nutrients.





Ingredients:
- 4 cups raw corn kernels cut from cob
- ¼ cup olive oil
- ½ cup water
- ½ tsp. sea salt
- 2 chile peppers (jalepeno)
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 bunch cilantro
- ½ cup ground flaxseeds (preferably golden flaxseed) (if mixture is too watery, add more ground flax until mixture is thicker)



Directions:
Mix all ingredients (except flax) in a blender. Add mixture to dry flaxseeds and mix thoroughly. Spread thinly onto dehydrator sheets, transferring onto the dehydrator trays as mixture dries and score into shapes.

You can dehydrate these chips at 105 degrees for about 12 hours or cheat a bit by increasing the temperature to 110 degrees for a slightly less drying time. You want to dehydrate enough to get a crispy chip as opposed to a chewy one.

Celery
Think further than a Waldorf salad, with virtually no calories, celery is an excellent snack, and is an essential ingredient of many dishes such as soups and casseroles. A 100g of celery contains only 7 calories. Oriental medicine has long used celery to lower blood pressure.

Dandelion and Tomato Salad
Category: Salads
Description: Pity the American dandelion. In countries across the world the dandelion is considered a delicious vegetable and is consumed with affection–and dandelion has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries. In America, it is most often cursed as an irksome weed and is pulled, poisoned and otherwise generally maligned.

Dandelion gets its name from the French "dents de lion", or lion's teeth, which describes the jagged edges on the leaves. The "lion" part might be there due to the fact that the fluffy yellow flowers of the plant resemble a lion's furry mane.
Dandelion greens are loaded with beta carotene, the carotenoid phytonutrient that is a precursor to vitamin A.
Dandelions help to support digestion.
Known to reduce swelling and inflammation.
Traditionally used as an anti-viral, treatment for gout, eczema, jaundice, and edema.
Function as both mild laxative and gentle diuretic properties to purify the blood and cleanse the system.

Dandelion greens have a reputation for bitterness, but they are nicely so, and the bitterness is balanced by a lovely spiciness similar to arugula. Mature greens can get pretty bitter, but this can be tamed by blanching them.
The time to harvest dandelion greens is early in the spring, when they are their youngest and before they flower. They can be harvested again in late fall as they loose some of their bitterness after a frost. Look for young dandelions growing in rich, moist soil, making sure not to forage close to roads. They taste fresh and easy to add to any salad!
This recipes is so simple to make.
