Load Up on B12!

12 Oct

Loading up on B12!

I have I recently bought Spirulina that boasted 150% DV of Vitamin B12 in just 1 teaspoon. I like to sprinkle it on my breakfast fruit puddings a lot. But today, I’ve just been enjoying digging into my salad bowl loaded with the easiest creamy B12 dressing. I actually prefer this dressing to the Raw Caesar I posted a while back… this is so much simpler, easier and quicker to prepare! Here it is:

Mix together:

2 tbspns nutritional yeast (I have Red Star in my pantry right now, but usually use Bragg’s)
2 tbspns raw tahini
1-2 tbspns raw apple cider vinegar
6 tbspns extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp to 1 tsp sea salt, or to taste

Toss with Romaine Lettuce or other greens. Top with seeds or nuts, as you please. This makes just enough for 1!

A comparison of B12 content:

Red Star Nutritional Yeast has 130% DV of Vitamin B12 per 1 1/2 tbspns

Bragg's Nutritional Yeast has 40% DV of Vitamin B12 per 1 tablespoon

Easy Raw Pizza

Easy Raw Pizza

 

The last time we visited my mother-in-law, she ordered delicious Raw Pizza for me which I just devoured.  As soon as I got home, I needed to make my own – one that required the least amount of time, the least amount of ingredients and still be yummy.  This week, I have been indulging in a very simple Cheeze Pizza and my husband, a California Pizza Kitchen Thai Pizza Lover, inspired me to create this Raw Thai Pizza.  After eating one large pizza pie to himself, he exclaimed: “That is a yummy raw pizza!”

Ummm, need I say more?

Enjoy!

Raw Nacho Cheeze Dip

22 Jul

Raw Nacho Cheese Dip

Smooth, ooey-gooey and it never hardens!  Rich in B12 and omega 3 fatty acids, this is the perfect raw cheese dip for Tortilla/Corn Chips, along with Pico de Gallo and Guacamole! My hubby finishes half of it everytime I make it (ahem… when there is the very rare chance of store bought organic tortilla chips in our house…)!  Till I create a better dehydrated corn chip recipe, I thought I’d share this dip with you!  Enjoy!

Puree together in a blender:

1/8 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tbspn maple syrup (or sweetener of your choice)
1 tbspn raw almond butter
1 1/2 tbspns unpasteurized mellow white miso
6 tbspns flax meal (I grind my own and have used both whole flax seeds or golden flax seeds with fantastic results)
1/2 cup nutritional yeast (I use Bragg’s)
7/8 cup water

Wait for a few minutes to allow the flax seeds to thicken the mixture.  Serve!
