This weekend was very mild. This weekend was about preparation.
I started sprouting some Quinoa. I plan on making some crackers with the sprouted quinoa, I also would like to make a few different patties, salads, and a few other items. I used red quinoa. Thought it was a little more lively and festive!!!
Here is the Quinoa soaking…
All of the information I read varied from soaking 2 – 3 hrs to 6 – 8 hours. I decided I would take the sum and cut it in half. I soaked the Quinoa 4 hours. After the 4 hours, I rinsed it and let it sit in a colander for 1 day. Actually, this morning I began seeing sprouts already!!! Since It has been quite warm here in Los Angeles for the past few days so I think the sprouts are pretty resonsive to that.
Here they are this morning!! Can you see the sprouts?? They are little. All the literature I read says the tails should be 1/4″ to be ready. It only took 14 hrs!!!
If you look closely you can see the little tails that were there this morning.
I also had the opportunity to try some RAW package foods. First I tried a Hemp Cereal with spirulina in it…
I started with the nut milk…
This is 1 heaping Tablespoon of Raw Almond Butter and 1 cup purified water.
Then it was time for the cereal!!! Here it is!
Then I served it with some bananas…
This was a very good breakfeast treat. I also made some apple, date cinnamon milk later on in the day to sustain energy. Sometimes I just want something to sustain me, rather than have an entire meal. Know what I mean??
After the laundry was done we took a short drive around town. I finally was able to make it to a quaint little store called “Naturewell“. It is filled with RAW and Non-Raw items sold in bulk. It gave me the opportunity to try these wonderful Chocolate Macaroons!!!
Here is the link to the company that made the Macaroons. They are called “Food on Purpose” out of Espanola, New Mexico.
More recipes to come!
