And here's a new trick, Mr. Knox... Dash of 'kraut juice in my homemade BBQ sauce, leave at room temp a cpl days and, boom! You have fermented homemade BBQ sauce, bubbles 'n' all. Smokey, tangy, spicy all in one. :) My original BBQ sauce recipe is a cpl posts back. Goes great on a big hot brekky after Anzac Day dawn service. Lest we forget.

I was worried I'd traumatised my kefir grains by rinsing them too soon... Looks like they're back with a bubbly vengeance today! #phew #crisisaverted #rawmilkkefir #cleopatrasbathmilk #milkkefir #milkkefirgrains #kefir #fermenting #nutrition #probiotics #healthspo #guthealing #guthealth

Not the KKK you think... Here's what Donna Schwenk has to say about Kombucha, Kefir and 'Kraut, or "The Trilogy". "The Trilogy is my secret weapon. It has changed my life and so many other lives. Three magic and powerful foods that I consume every day without fail. They are kefir, kombucha, and cultured vegetables. This is the thing I noticed the most when I taught others about cultured foods – when they consumed one of these foods they would get better, but when they consumed all three they seemed to thrive! "These three foods (kefir, kombucha, and cultured vegetables) are unique unto themselves and each food contains a different set of bacteria and yeasts that we need to thrive and feel alive." -Donna Schwenk, Cultured Food Life http://members.culturedfoodlife.com/the-trilogy/ Consuming the KKK has cured my lifelong skin condition. The benefits of cultured foods are endless, so get cracking and start thriving!

It's always nice having a yummy condiment to spice up a meal. This one's a cracker! HOMEMADE BBQ SAUCE. Bypass artificial flavours, colours and preservatives in storebought sauces by making your own. BBQ SAUCE INGREDIENTS 4 large tomatoes (600g), chopped 1 large onion (about 150g), roughly chopped 100ml (5 tbsp) balsamic vinegar Pinch each of: nutmeg, cinnamon, ground cloves, cumin and coriander ½ tsp smokey paprika 1 tsp mustard seeds 1 tsp ground black pepper pinch cayenne or chilli powder to taste Salt to taste ½ cup coconut sugar METHOD Put all ingredients except the coconut sugar in a large saucepan. Simmer, covered, over a low heat for 5 minutes until the vegetables are cooked and starting to soften. Increase the heat and boil to evaporate two-thirds of the liquid, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is a thick, pouring consistency. Add the coconut sugar and stir to dissolve, then bring to the boil and cook, stirring frequently, for 20 minutes or until the chutney is thick with no excess liquid. Blitz a little with a stick blender. Cool, then pour into clean jars. Great with meat, eggs, fish, BBQ, cheese, etc etc!

Activated buckwheat flour. Sounds like a hassle, but it's really just a few simple steps in between a lot of waiting around... 1) soak buckwheat groats in filtered water overnight (the groats will absorb a lot of water, so you may need to top it up) 2) let them sit in a seive, covered with a lose cloth, for another day or two until they 'sprout' 3) dehydrate in dehydrator overnight 4) grind into flour using a coffee/spice grinder I'll be using my activated buckwheat flour to give grain free scones a crack this weekend. Buckwheat flour is great for pancake making too. All grains, nuts, seeds and legumes should ideally be soaked overnight before cooking them to reduce phytates and other anti-nutrients found in them that block the absorption of minerals and lead to digestive issues. Despite the name, buckwheat is not related to wheat whatsoever, but is in fact related to rhubarb and completely gluten free. Here's a link with more info: http://nouveauraw.com/special-raw-ingredients/how-to-sprout-and-use-buckwheat-groats/

I call this, "Nut butter and JAM it in your face." TOP LAYER: Homemade activated nut butter mixed with enough coconut oil to solidify when refrigerated. I make TWO INGREDIENT ONLY NUT BUTTERS in 2 minutes using my Vitamix: blitz activated nuts and dash of macadamia oil for smoothness. Better than the crap they sell in the supermarket. Pic a cpl posts back. JAM STUFFING: Homemade native berry jam (recipe also a few posts back; just use organic strawberries if easier). BOTTOM LAYER: Super easy healthy homemade chocolate (use this recipe as the base for any homemade chocolate creation, including chocolate bliss balls): Melt- 1 part cold pressed organic xv coconut oil with 1 part organic raw cacao butter. (Buy cacao butter in health stores - if you can't find it, you can substitute this part with grass fed butter or just go with 2 parts coconut oil.) Cool melted mixture to room temp. Thoroughly mix in 1 part organic raw cacao powder. If desired, sweeten to taste with raw honey, organic 100% maple syrup or melted coconut sugar. Pour into moulds/add nuts/dried fruit/bee pollen/cacao nibs/shredded coconut/blitzed dates/a drop of vanilla extract/etc. Refrigerate to solidify. Freeze to solidify faster if you are making layers. Done. Enjoy daily for health. ;)

So these kind of happened... Geeze, it's been a while since I did a chocolate reinvention! CHOCOLATE NUT BUTTER CUPS STUFFED WITH NATIVE BERRY JAM. As the ad's for the store bought ones say, "Peanut butter and JAM it in your face!" (Disclaimer: these are peanut free!) Everything is natural. Everything is made from scratch. Individual components can be adjusted to suit you. It's all easier than it appears. Who wants the recipe? ;p #healthychocolate #refinedsugarfree #homemadechocolate #reecescups #wildfood #foraging #paleochocolate #foodporn #instafood #chocolateporn #activatednuts #Nutivated #lillypilly #illawarraplum #Australia #bushtucker

If you don't already know, I make and sell activated nuts (mix 'em with my organic sundried mulberries for a party in your mouth!). I also sell spiralisers for your zoodling pleasure. Inbox my fb page (live link in my IG bio) for a pricelist. Use the hashtag #Nutivated to browse my activated nuts on Instagram. :) They can also be turned into delicious activated nut butters, which I whip up in 2 mins (add a dash of macadamia oil for extra smoothness) in my #Vitamix. TWO INGREDIENT ONLY NUT BUTTERS (nuts and maca oil). Better than the crap they sell in the supermarket. :) #activatednuts #homemadenutbutter #almondbutter #cashewbutter #walnutbutter #organicberries #sundriedmulberries #nutbutter Thank you @jojo112783 for my beautiful business cards!

Sunday fun day. :) Lunch feast with friends then a 30km jaunt around Homebush Bay by sunset. If I wasn't racing to beat the dark, I would've spent another hour collecting a week's worth of food... #Wildfood aplenty all along both sides of the Parramatta River: indigenous sea blight and warrigal greens galore (do not forage in bush regen' areas), lilly pilly trees so laden with berries the branches were doubled over, African olives, weeds weeds, all manner of glorious edible weeds everywhere (not so good for the environment but good for the bod'!) Who needs to go shopping? Not I!

Because I am an outrageously nerdy loser, I MADE MY OWN PECTIN out of wild foraged feijoas growing on my street to thicken my native berry jam (jam recipe previous post). Say what? Well, some people enjoy playing golf, I like to cook from scratch. Pectin is a naturally occurring substance in fruit, but store bought versions often include dextrose and are not organic. I have used wild foraged feijoas to make my pectin (3 feijoa trees grow in my street). It’s actually very easy. Full homemade pectin recipe here (I have sub'ed quinces for unripened feijoas. Some sources have indicated that unripe fruit contains more pectin than ripe fruit. You can also make pectin out of crab apples, unripe granny smiths and citrus fruits): http://urbanschmurban.com/2012/10/08/in-season-quince-making-your-own-pectin/ If you can’t get feijoas or quinces, use this granny smith pectin recipe: http://www.cooksinfo.com/pectin

Presenting indigenous berry Jam, made with wild foraged Lilly Pilly berries and Illawarra Plums. I had been told that both were traditionally used to make jam in colonial times. BOTH ARE CURRENTLY IN SEASON, SO GET 'EM WHILE THEY'RE HOT FOLKS! Lilly Pilly is an indigenous tree to New South Wales. It is also endangered and makes a great hedge. The berries are juicy, crunchy and refreshing – tasting somewhere between an apple and a watermelon, slightly sour and very zesty. I have used this lilly pilly jam recipe and added the Illawarra Plums to it (just sub' native berries for organic strawberries if you can't find them). I substituted white sugar for coconut sugar and I even made my own pectin using wild foraged feijoas (Nerd alert! See previous recipe for homemade feijoa pectin recipe.): http://pinkyhiggs.blogspot.com.au/2014/05/lilly-pilly-jam.html Stay tuned for my lilly pilly/plum jam yum yums coming soon… ;)

I have used this lilly pilly jam recipe and added the Illawarra Plums to it (just sub' native berries for organic strawberries if you can't find them). I substituted white sugar for coconut sugar and I even made my own pectin using wild foraged feijoas (Nerd alert!

Presenting indigenous berry Jam, made with wild foraged Lilly Pilly berries and Illawarra Plums.

I had been told that both were traditionally used to make jam in colonial times. BOTH ARE CURRENTLY IN SEASON, SO GET 'EM WHILE THEY'RE HOT FOLKS!

Jun cultures and Kombucha SCOBYs look similar but thrive on completely different substrates. A 'Jun' SCOBY is a culture that's adapted to thrive on raw honey and green tea at a lower temp and will create loads of fizz. It’s also quick to brew, forgiving when it ferments too long, and retains the aromatic characteristics of the honey that was used. And with the numerous medicinal benefits of honey, it’s hard not to gravitate towards this ferment. The origins of Jun: anecdotes regarding the sacred maintenance of the culture usually allude to Tibetans origin. Here are some of the other differences between a Jun & Kombucha culture. Jun: Green tea & Raw honey ferment Smoother, lighter flavour Ideal brewing temp around 20C Kombucha: Black tea & sugar ferment Stronger, bolder flavour Ideal brewing temp around 25C

Activated hummus. This hummus was made with a variety of dried legumes I had in my pantry. You can also follow the recipe using chickpeas only for a more traditional hummus. I posted about how to properly prepare legumes, nuts, seeds and grains via long soaking a few days ago, so as to break down phytic acids and make them more digestible. Scroll back through my posts to find the info. I soaked the legumes in whey and filtered water for 36 hrs and simmered them in water for 10hrs. It sounds like a lot of trouble but really it's just waiting around, they prepare themselves! Using properly prepared legumes, as outlined above, make activated hummus like this (original Lebanese recipe from the lovely @elianeskitchen): INGREDIENTS 650g of properly prepared (soaked and long cooked) chickpeas or other legumes of your choice 3/4 cup of Tahini 1 cup of Lemon juice Salt to taste Garlic cloves to taste METHOD To prepare the legumes, soak in whey for 24hrs+. The next day, drain, wash and boil the legumes for 6-10 hrs, until soft. Make the blender do the hard work for you - place all the ingredients in a blender and blend till creamy. Remove from the blender (before removing, taste if any ingredient needs increasing and add as required). Spread evenly on a plate and drizzle with olive oil (if you like you can even sprinkle some paprika or chilli powder over the hummus). Enjoy!!

My favourite thing EVER before bed. Warm, spiced #goldenmilk made from #goldenpaste with half milk/half cream. Satisfying, warming, soothing. Remember your body doesn't properly absorb the beneficial antiinflammatory curcumin in turmeric without the two following 'activators': 1) freshly ground pepper (peperine) 2) a fat to dissolve it in (eg, coconut oil/butter/cream) Sweet dreams. 💕😗😪 #antiinflamatory #turmeric #warmmilk #tummyhug

  • Divine!!! I love golden milk. @stephvournier
     
  • @stephvournier (9 dni)
    Half milk half cream...how much turmeric? And heated up obviously. How long? 1 min? I'll definitely give it a try!
     
  • It's not just straight turmeric. It's golden paste. Recipe here: http://www.turmericforhealth.com/turmeric-recipes/how-to-make-turmeric-paste-or-golden-paste
