Chocolate Milk, Dulse, Cheesecake, Bell Pepper Juice, etc...another nutty day in the kitchen..

Chocolate Milk~Raw

2 c. fresh raw almond milk
4 dates pitted
2 T. raw cacao powder
1 t. vanilla
4-6 ice cubes

Blend until smooth an a bit frothy
makes 2 servings

My daughter was craving some chocolate milk and this really hit the spot! 


It is not often you make acquaintance with people who like seaweed.  This past week I talked with someone else who appreciates this yummy stuff and since I was getting some out to share I thought I'd just take a picture of my stash.  It has been store in a box secured tightly in plastic so it has settled.  It pull apart in strips that can be eating as is...thanks to another friend who turned me on to eating it this way....or you can soak it in filtered water and put it in salads or add it to soups.  I prefer it raw and chewy!  It satisfies my taste for salt and it is better than potato chips.
I also use Dulse granules to sprinkle on some of my foods when I don't want to chew it.

If you want to know a bit more about dulse and other seaweeds check out this article.

Dulse is a natural source of iodine, essential for thyroid gland health and thyroid hormone secretion.
It is extememly high in B 6 and B 12, iron, potassium, fluoide. It is low in sodium, unlike other seaweeds.
It contains C, E, A, calcium, magnesium, dietary fiber and protein.

Today I was busy in my kitchen.  I was trying to hurry along...so I made my eggplant a little thicker this time...I really like to slice it thin so it is more crunchy...I'm going to leave it in the dehydrator overnight to see if it will dry to a more crunchy texture.  It is still good!
P.S. `next day~perfect bacon...I won't be cutting it thin anymore...it was hearty and crunchy... :)
