Real Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

 Before I started eating high raw & vegan, I was the kind of grandma who always had a full candy jar & a plethera of sweet treats for the kids. I wasn't sure they would want to come visit gramma once I cleaned my house of all that is unhealthy. But I made various raw snacks that I thought might appeal to them and waited to see how it goes. To my surprise, they devoured everything I had made. My 3 yr old granddaughter even exclaimed " Gramma you must really love me! You make yummy treats!". Lately, I have also gotten them into helping me make fresh juices and smoothies, and to help make their favorite snack of BBQ Kale Chips. (The snacks have been so popular that my daughter-in-law has asked for many of the recipes so they can have raw snacks at home). One of the best things about gramma going raw is that I now have the energy to keep up with my 6 grandkids! (ages 18, 14, 11, 5, 3 & 2). It has been such a wonderful feeling, knowing that the changes I have made concerning my own health, has had a positive impact on the rest of my family as well. Even my daughter has embraced the raw vegan lifestyle. She became raw last summer, after seeing the drastic changes in my health. Now our favorite thing to do together is spending the weekend trying new raw recipes. What fun!! I feel very blessed to have such a supportive family!

Thanks! Here's the kale chip recipe: Using a blender mix together until smooth and paste-like, 1c mejool dates, 1c sun-dried tomatoes (soaked), 2-3 chipotle peppers (seeded & soaked), 2tblsp apple cider vinegar, 2tblsp tamari, 2 tblsp olive oil, 1 tsp garlic powder, pinch of cayenne, 2 tsp cumin, 1 tsp paprika. Pour over a big bowl of kale and massage the paste into the kale with your hands. Spread on a dehydrater sheet. Dehydrate overnight or until crisp at 105 degrees. Enjoy!

That's great Glenda! I remember my grandma used to have a fish bowl of candy and now she gives me an apple. The change is the best. Could you share the recipe for the BBQ Kale Chips? Sounds delish!
