Turmeric Figgy Pudding

The health properties of turmeric are well researched and documented, and so has gained respect the medical field for its antioxidant profile and ability to fight inflammation. Curcumin is the active compound in turmeric, though makes up just 3%, so use a curcumin supplement if you want to access the most potent benefits. Add black pepper anytime you use turmeric and this greatly increases its bioavailability. While my recipes are vegan, honey technically isn’t. You can substitute for date syrup if you wish, though honey tastes much better in this recipe and has superior health properties (if you buy raw, unrefined honey). If you do want to use honey, if you can support a local beekeeper, you can ensure that you get it from an ethical source.

Raw Seed Bars (Grain-Free)

Raw Seed Bars (Grain-Free)

Raw seed bars were one of the first ‘health food’ recipes I ever made – they’re so simple to make and you can really pack in the good stuff! Seeds, nuts and coconut oil are all good sources of essential fatty acids and, as the name suggests, are essential to the body. EFA’s and are involved in numerous processes including brain and nerve function, energy, metabolism and healthy skin, hair and nails.

Recipe

Raw Seed Bars

Portion: 4 large slices

Ingredients: 

  • 1 cup mixed seeds
  • 1/2 cups nuts of your choice 
  • 1/2 cup chopped dates
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp nut butter 
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tsp blackstrap molasses
  • 1 tsp date syrup or raw honey

Instructions:
.

  1. Coarsely blend 1/2 cup of mixed seeds (use the grinder blade).
    .
  2. Add this to a mixing bowl with 1/2 cup of whole mixed seeds. 
    .
  3. Coarsely blend 1/2 cup nuts (I blend the nuts separately from the seeds since the nuts take longer to blitz) and add to the mix, along with the remaining ingredients; 1/2 cup chopped dates, 2 tbsp coconut butter, 2 tbsp nut butter, 1 tbsp tahini, 2 tsp blackstrap molasses and 1 tsp date syrup.
    .
  4. Mix well and place in a deep sided baking tray or lunchbox. Press the mixture down very firmly until well compact; the bars should be about 1.5″ deep.

  5. Cut into 4 slices before placing in the freezer to set for at least 20 mins, then enjoy!

Storing suggestion: These seed bars are best stored in the freezer. This helps keep the ground seed fresh and maintains structural integrity (coconut oil sets hard)! They also taste really nice cold!

This uber-green smoothie is calming and cooling and can be used pre-that time of the month to help combat excess heat and inflammation.
