Cactus Fruit Juice

Experimenting is always fun when the end results turn out better than your expectations. I  initially experimented with this fruit with my children for a Summer refresher and this was absolutely delicious.This is very refreshing, yet interesting flavor.

I will add strawberries to the next one but this would make it a strawberry cactus lemonade. Sweet yet tart.

INGREDIENTS:

3 cactus fruit peeled
2 limes peeled
1 Apple peeled
8 oz water

1 cup strawberries (optional)
For strawberry cactus lemonade

Blend all ingredients in blender. Strain twice to make smooth juice.

Roasted Okra & Greens

Stir Fry is an easy go-to meal that almost any family can make in under 30 minutes. Okra has been a fan favorite for decades in the south. Originally from the indigenous people of the Gold coasts of West Africa, Okra made its way  in the bellies of the “New World” in the late 1600’s. However, it’s most commonly known for being included in Creole patois since the 1800’s to the present.

Since Okra and Collard greens are a huge component in the south. I decided to take the two most common items and create a healthy, vegan meal that can be created alongside cornbread and black-eyed peas or as a meal by itself.

My goal was not to overcook the greens so the nutrients still remain in them hence cooking them under 2 minutes.

Here’s the recipe for roasted Okra and Collard Greens stir fry.

 

INGREDIENTS:

Roasted Okra:
1/2 lb okra cut in halves
3 tbls grape seed oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp basil
1/4 tsp ground sage
Bake at 400 F approx.10-12 minutes

Sautéed Mixture:
2 cups chopped collard greens
2 cups chopped Kale
1/2 onion
1/2 large Green bell pepper
1 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
Approx. 3-4 tbls grape seed/Avocado oil
3/4 tbls sea salt

2 cups Garbanzo beans
3/4 cup Black beans

Grains:
1 cup Quinoa
2 cups water
1/4 cup Kamut Approx
1 cup water

DIRECTIONS:

Boil grains as directed on package.

As grains are boiling, preheat oven to 400 F.

Rinse and slice Okra in halves.

Prepare Okra by mixing oils, herbs and sea salt together on a baking sheet.

Bake Okra approximately 10-12 minutes

As Okra is baking, Chop your Sautee mixture.

Heat skillet on Med-High heat with Grapeseed/Avocado oil

Chayote Rice Fry

As I’ve mentioned before, lately, I’ve been on a transitional alkaline lifestyle path. Choosing to eat for an electric body is a choice that I’m taking. Every time I’m on set, people always ask me how do I have so much energy, all the time and all day.

Well, my secret is eating foods that have a high ph level. Drinking smoothies, having fresh squeezed lime water and overall balance of raw and cooked foods.  When I rise with the sun, I soak up Vitamin D with the light from It as well

I wont bore you to death but this meal literally took under 20 minutes to make and it’s my GO TO meal when I don’t have a lot of time.

INGREDIENTS:

1 chayote
1/2 onion
1/2 green pepper
6 Mushrooms
2 1/2 cups organic Kale
3 Tbls Grapeseed oil
1 1/2 cup cooked Wild rice/ Quinoa

FASHION FRIDAY’s-Destined to Egypt

Faith gives her the courage to seek where her heart leads.

sARA1

As she searches for the land and wisdom that’s bestowed within her nucleus, fatigued, she leans against the paved stone. Lands of stones that her Anunnaki ancestors created from pieces of Nibiru. Fixed and aligned with precision, the pyramid in which she leans against, will never be destroyed as the planets from which they derive still exists.

unspecified

As she leans on the stones of her ancestors, energy is transferred from stone to flesh. With the energy in her body and Ra that exists, she lifts all hands in the symbol of praise to show respect, love, and honor to her people that built the lands that she wishes to call home.

Saraa2-1

As she walks away from what she was in search to find, her confidence elongates her strength in mind and posture. Orientated, she determines her bearings and leads the way to new found lands, discovering pieces of the inner puzzle of trails to follow. Like lightning, she looks up to them for guidance to move in the right direction and make a strike to expunge all fallacies that existed prior to her arrival.

sARA2

Once she begins to remember her story, she reflects and reminds them that she will never turn her back on the legacy that the divine nature, principles and laws of her bloodline will not go unclaimed. The more she discovers pieces of herself in the land, the more pugnacious she becomes. Fighting to keep the language and knowledge alive to spread to those unaware.

Sitting

Not governed by fate, Medu, speaks wise words through divinity. She patiently sits discussing the passing of the living ancestors flowing through the blood of the resurrection of themselves. As the two energies of the Nepti sit in alignment, they set to protect everything that belongs to all life of the planet.

Veronica

As they split and she turns east, like a nesher, she soars above the earth and the wind impregnates her.

Veornica and Aurielle

She speaks her own name into existence and there, they walk together, mother and child. The laws of divine beings walk together like the memory of water, just flowing together yet controlling their molecular consciousness.

Alkaline Lime Water

This year, I went on a more alkaline lifestyle. I found a doctor by the name of Dr. Sebi. He has cured many ailments that exist today since the 1980’s. He has stated that the common issue with every ailment like Aids, Cancer, Diabetes, Blindness is mucus.

Through research, he found foods and herbs that heal the body and keeps it alkaline and electric through researching the ph levels in foods.

I decided to create some simple yet complex food recipes to help us break down the lists of alkaline foods for healing and nurturing the body before slave diets played a huge role in the everyday food intake.

Below, you will find a morning Apple and Lime Alkaline drink. Because I like my water crisp and tart, I only add a small amount of Agave nectar for a hint of sweetness.

INGREDIENTS:

16 oz water

1/2 Apple

1/2 Lime or 2 key Limes

1 Tbls Agave Nectar (sweetness)

DIRECTIONS:

Put all ingredients in a blender and mix for approximately 2 minutes.
