Health Benefits of Cocoa
The health benefits of drinking hot cocoa abound. Cocoa contains significant amounts of antioxidants that may help prevent cancer. They have also shown that the cocoa bean helps with digestion. The flavonoids found in cocoa also have a positive effect on arterial health. Cacao info (read this awesome article) and here is a bit of the info you will learn:
“…That’s where cacao comes in. Raw cacao powder contains more than 300 different chemical compounds and nearly four times the antioxidant power of your average dark chocolate – more than 20 times than that of blueberries. Protein, calcium, carotene, thiamin, riboflavin, magnesium, sulfur, flavonoids, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids are also present. The precise blend of all these elements combined serve to kick in naturally occurring phytochemicals that have incredible benefits throughout the body, such as lowered LDL cholesterol, improved heart function, and reduced cancer risk.”

Health Benefits of Arbonne Protein Powder
Arbonne’s protein powder is a clean protein that is whey free, made with pea, rice and cranberry protein and formulated for maximum absorption. It’s key ingredients naturally reduce inflammation. It also helps counter our nutritional gaps. One thing a lot of people fail to realize is that substances in liquid form are absorbed more quickly into your digestive system than solid foods are. With this in mind, smoothies can often spike your blood-sugar levels if protein and fats arenโ€™t present. By simply adding a protein powder into your smoothies you can help to limit the chances of spiking your blood sugar and later on having a major crash. When protein is added in, everything is absorbed more slowly as protein is harder to break down. It is typically more beneficial to your overall digestion when your protein powder is plant-based vs animal-based as it is easier on your digestive tract and will limit your chances of bloating and constipation.

plum preserves recipe:ย 8 C pitted, quartered tart plums,ย 6 C Sugar,ย 1.5 C Water
1. Prepare canner jars and lids.
2. In a large, deep stainless steel saucepan, combine plums, sugar and water. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Increase heat to high and boil hard, stirring frequently until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and test gel. (There are different ways to do this. I use a candy thermometer and bring it to 220.) If gel stage has been reached, skim off foam.
3. Ladle hot preserves into hot jars, leaving 1/4โ€ headspace. Remove air bubbles and adjust headspace, if necessary, by adding more preserves. Wipe rim. Center lid and screw band fingertip-tight.
4. Place jars in canner following the boiling water method for your canner. Bring to a boil and process for 15 minutes. Remove canner lid. Wait 5 minutes, then remove jars, cool and store.

Chipotle Chicken Sweet Potato Skins!

Chipotle Chicken Sweet Potato Skins!

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Wash your sweet potatoes and prick all over with a fork. Place in the oven and bake for 50-60 minutes or until fork tender.ย 

Place your *chicken in a baking dish and rub with a tablespoon of olive oil, salt and pepper. Place in the oven with the potatoes and bake for 25 minutes.

Allow to cool and shred the chicken with a fork or your hands. When the sweet potatoes are done cut in half and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes.

In a medium size bowl combine the olive oil, lime juice, garlic, chipotle peppers, oregano, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper. Set aside.

Heat a small skillet over medium heat and wilt the spinach (this can also be done in the microwave). Toss the spinach and shredded chicken together, set aside and keep warm.

Turn the oven up to 400 degrees. Scrape the sweet potato out of the peel, leaving a medium size layer of flesh inside with the peel so that it can stand up on its own (I reserved the remaining flesh, for another use) and place in a baking dish.

Brush the skins with with a little of the chipotle sauce and bake for 5-10 muntes until nice and crisp. While the skins bake mix the spinach, chicken and chipotle sauce together. Remove the skins and top with Chicken mixture..

Save your sweet potato for use in protein shakes ( with a little cinnamon in vanilla shake mix it tastes like pumpkin pie) or other recipes.

 

* vegetarians and vegans replace the chicken with chickpeas or beansย 

**make sure to use organic spices. Spices can be hidden with a lot of yeast and chemical additives.

 

Gluten Free Bread

a0ba04abeadab3f5d93c6a23a70deb83--warm-kitchen-gluten-free-recipes.jpg
Recipe by Amy Fothergill, courtesy of The Warm Kitchenย Cookbook
ย 
This is a tried and true recipe for a simple yet delicious gluten-free bread recipe. It can be made with regular milk or a milk substitute. I usually use almond or coconut as the substitute. If you need to make it egg-free, you can use a flax or chia seed substitute. However, I would add more yeast (3 teaspoons total) or add a 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder to the dry ingredients. Make sure to let it rest about 15 minutes before you slice it; otherwise it might fall apart. It can be left at room temperature for about 24-36 hours. After that, place in the fridge and reheat in a toaster.
ย 
If you find pockets of flour in the corners of your bread when itโ€™s done baking, you can mix the dry and liquid ingredients in a bowl first, then add it to the breadmaker pan without the paddle.
ย 
To make this in loaf pans, first mix the dry and liquid ingredients in separate bowls. Then vigorously mix the two together in a large bowl with a spatula for about 2 minutes (you can also use a stand up mixer). Spray or grease 2 loaf pans and place bread dough in the two pans, dividing evenly. Let rise covered 30 minutes in a warm place. Preheat oven to 350F. Bake 30-40 minutes or until golden brown on top. Let rest in pan 5 minutes. Remove and then let cool before slicing.

ย 
DRY INGREDIENTS
3 ยผ cups Amy’s gluten-free flour mix (see below or use something similar)
2 teaspoons xanthan gum
1 โ€“ 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt (more or less depending upon your taste; less if you have regular salt)
2 1/4 teaspoons quick rise yeast (1 packet)
Optional: 1/8 teaspoon dry ground ginger (this helps the bread stay fresher; use if it you think the bread wonโ€™t be eaten in 3 days)
ย 
LIQUID INGREDIENTS
1 cup hot water (between 120-130F)
1/2 cup warm milk or milk substitute (you can use all water instead of milk)
2 eggs, beaten, at room temperature
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 ยฝ tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil like safflower
1 tablespoon honey or agave nectar
Tip: Measure the oil first and then the honey or agave so it does not stick to the measuring spoon.
ย 
  1. Mix flour (or flours), gum, salt, yeast and ginger in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  2. Place breadmaker pan in breadmaker with the blade/paddle. Add hot water and milk (or all water). In a small bowl, mix eggs, vinegar, oil, and honey or agave; add to bread maker bowl and combine with water.
  3. Carefully add flour mixture to the breadmaker, one cup at a time, so that the flour mixture does not spill.
  4. Turn breadmaker on. Use the Fast or Quick Bake setting for the quick-rise yeast, about 60 minutes. Gluten-free bread dough looks more like cake batter and it’s very sticky; that is normal. You may need to scrape the corners of the bowl while it’s mixing as the flour can accumulate there. Be careful to not move the paddle.
  5. When baking cycle is done, immediately remove hot bread from bowl/pan and place on a wire rack.
  6. Cool for 10 minutes. Carefully remove blade from bottom of the bread. Wait another 5-10 minutes before cutting.
ย 
Amy’s gluten-free flour mix
Mix the following and place in an air-tight container:
3 cups superfine brown rice flour
1 cup millet flour (or superfine white rice flour)
1 cup potato starch (not flour)
1 cup tapioca starch or flour
If you want a heartier bread, measure 2 3/4 cups of the above blend into a bowl and then add 1/2 cup sorghum flour to it; Use this for the 3 1/4 cups of gf flour needed in the recipe above.
