Red Beet Borscht

Ingredients:
salad
3 large red beets, peeled and shredded
½ head napa cabbage, chiffonade thin (or shredded)
2 fuji/gala apple, shredded
4 carrot, shredded
1 cup sprouted wild rice
1 cup sprouted lentils

broth
4 tbsp miso paste
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp gluten-free tamari
1 tsp allspice powder
8 cups boiling hot water, divided

garnish
with minced fresh dill
a dollop of cashew sour cream
a spoonful of sauerkraut
green onion
freshly ground pepper

Procedure:
Combine all salad ingredients in a large bowl and mix well with tongs. Mix broth ingredients in 2 cups boiling-hot water until dissolved. Divvy out the salad mixture in individual bowls then pour the miso mixture over top each equally. Fill the bowls with the rest of the hot water and garnish with a dollop of cashew sour cream, a spoonful of kimchi, green onion, and dill. Alternatively, you may blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender for a unique
creamy soup – if this is the case, add 2 cups of room-temperature water before blending then blend for 4 minutes until steamy. Once in individual bowls, add the rest of the hot water and stir by hand.

Day 11

Camu camu has up to 60x more vitamin C than oranges, making it potent in boosting the immune system and liver health, enhancing moods, and combating symptoms as macular degeneration, cognitive dysfunction, and arthritis that comes with aging.

Camu Camu Poppy Seed Nice Cream

Ingredients:
1 cup young Thai coconut
½ cup coconut butter
1 cup cashews, soaked and rinsed
½ cup maple syrup
½ cup lemon juice
1 tbsp lemon zest
2 tsp camu camu powder
1 tbsp poppy seeds (mix in by hand)

garnish
½ cup raspberries blended with ½ tbsp of liquid sweetener and 1 tbsp chia seeds
lemon zest

Procedure:
Add ingredients to a high-speed blender (except poppy seeds), aerate as necessary. You’ll want to make sure the mixture is really creamy – use a spatula or Vitamix tamper and put some muscle into it! Transfer into a bowl, stir in poppy seeds by hand and pour into ice cream moulds/ice cube trays. Freeze for 5 hours and enjoy! Try it without the cashews for an even creamier nice cream – this also makes it nut-free.

Eating an acidic diet of processed foods, meat, fish, coffee, soda, sweets and dairy causes weak immunity, lethargy, weight gain, and poor nails, hair and skin.

Consuming juiced fruits and vegetables allows the human body faster and greater absorption of the nutrients which supports liver detoxification. Different than a smoothie, a juice provides a flush of nutrients to the system when no fibre is present to slow the absorption. This is why you get hungry quicker after a juice verses a smoothie.

Ingredients:
1 red beetroot
1 carrot
1 tomato
½ cucumber
1 cup pineapple, chopped
One whole lemon

Procedure:
Process through a juicer or blend in a high speed blender then using a nut milk bag, strain the fibre out. Keep the roughage to add to raw crackers.

Day 06

Fermenting allows stocking food for a long time but that isn’t the best benefit. We’ve heard it’s good for gut health, this is true! But fermentation also removes toxins from our food, makes the food enzyme-rich that pre-digests the food making it more easily absorbable by the body.

Basic Sauerkraut

Ingredients:
5 pounds cabbage and or mixed vegetables
3 tablespoons pink Himalayan pink salt

Procedure:
Thinly slice the vegetables (leave a few large leaves for the top layer). In a ceramic crock pot or 1 liter mason jar, layer the vegetables adding a pinch of Himalayan pink salt to each layer. Punch/press/pound with a pestle the vegetable after each layer to start the culturing process. When ready to cover, arrange the cabbage leaves over the top and make sure it is totally covered. You just then weight the kraut down to prevent the cabbage from floating and keeps it under the brined. Do not seal the jar. Over the first 24 hours, check the kraut 3-4 times and press it down to make sure that the brine level rises to just above the cabbage. If after 24 hours there isn’t enough brine to completely cover everything, dissolve 1 tbsp of Himalayan pink salt in one cup of water and use this brine to fill the water line to just above the level of the cabbage. Ferment for 1-4 weeks (more salt, more time). You may see white/grayish mold on top, this is normal but must be removed before eating. To package the kraut, transfer in a mason jar and store in the fridge. It will keep for months.
