So Easy!

I decided to make the kids some pitta pockets for lunch today and although I am eating raw, or trying to, I did have one pitta pocket with a salad filling and because of the simple ingredients in this recipe I thought it wouldn't hurt, and it's healthy. The recipe I used is incredibly easy. I had never made pitta  bread pockets before until today. If anyone wants to make them here is the video:

Pitta Bread Pockets
13/4 C Wheat berries
1 tsp Salt (optional)
1 C Water

Grind the wheatberries to a very fine flour in the Vitamix - 11/2 mins
Add water into the middle of the flour and pulse.
Keep pushing the dough down using a spatula - I used the tamper until it forms a ball
Roll out amounts of the dough, rolling from the middle outwards
Bake 425 - 3 mins until puffed up.

Here is a pic of my lunch today.

My first ever attempt at making pitta bread pockets.
I made a fruit smoothie last night which I had for my breakfast this morning...YUM!

I have noticed that some of you readers live near to where I am, so why not leave a comment letting me know where you are.

Here is a raw recipe.

Liquid Chocolate Nirvana

4 Cups Almond OR Hazelnut Milk (preferably homemade)
3-4 Medjool Dates (Pitted) or Organic Coconut (Palm) Sugar to taste
1 Teaspoon Ground Pure Vanilla or Vanilla Extract (We use Medicine Flower)
2 Heaping Tablespoons Raw Cacao Powder
1 teaspoon Coconut Oil
½ Teaspoon Himalayan or Celtic Sea Salt
1 x pinch of cinnamon powder

1) If Making Milk From Scratch: Put the water and the nuts into a blender. Blend until you can't see any nut bits.
2) Hang your Nut milk Bag or other strainer over a bowl or pitcher and pour the mixture into the bag or strainer.
3) This is the fun bit.. Squeeze the bag until all the yummy fresh milk is out, keep one hand at the top of the bag to stop it all coming out the top.
The remains left behind is known as the pulp. (Freeze this for later use in cookies and veggie burgers etc.)
4) Now put the smooth nut liquid back into the blender and add everything else.
5) Blend until smooth.
Pour into the most sophisticated glasses you own. (cocktail glasses are lush)
Share with a special one or more.
Pair with a bowl of fresh raspberries for a seriously sensual experience.

Just had to come back and say, "WOW! I AM STARTING TO FEEL SOOO MUCH BETTER!!...WooHoo!!" I haven't needed to sleep through the day for the last couple of days either AND I have been more active, albeit just around the house, not exercise as such but more active nonetheless..WooHoo
Still missing my dad, SOOO VERY MUCH!!!

Back tomorrow.
