Barley Bread Recipe

This dense, rustic flat bread has a satisfying nutty taste and crunchy texture around the edges. It's great served with soups and stews, or salads. It's also nice on it's own, spread with honey or avocado as a snack or light meal. Best served warm, right from the oven. Because it's wheat-free, this bread doesn't contain the amount of gluten that a wheat-based loaf would, so therefore it doesn't puff up and create a light, airy bread like wheat-based loaves. It's more a cross between a flat-bread and a cracker, crunchy around the edges. But I love the texture, it feels much more substantial than a typical airy loaf. It's chewy in the middle, crunchy around the edges and much more flavorful than wheat flour. Oh, and it's vegan as well. This is one of the easiest and quickest bread recipes I've ever used. No bread maker or mixer required, it's easy enough to do it all manually. You don't […] Read more »

Raw Diet Recipes: Sesame Halva

I love halva, the Middle Eastern dessert made from sesame seeds. I'm not even sure how they make it but I decided to make my own healthy, raw version. Actually I was going to see if I could make raw tahini with my blender because I've not been able to find a raw tahini here in NZ. My blender ground the sesame seeds really well, but I was having a bit of a sweet craving and I ended up abandoning my tahini experiment in favor of raw halva. I didn't regret it, it really hit that sweet spot! This isn't an exact recipe, but it's such a simple recipe with so few ingredients that if you just let your taste buds guide you and you can't go wrong. Read more »

If you have a bread machine there is no excuse to not make your own homemade bread. It's easy, and if you follow this recipe, you'll end up with a beautiful light-textured wholemeal loaf that's also a great source of fiber.

One of the most popular legumes in the world, chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) were one of the first crops to be cultivated. They are one of the tastiest and most versatile of the pulses. Chickpeas are also high in fiber and contain the phytonutrient isoflavone, which may help to prevent cancer. Chickpeas belong to the family of legumes, also known as pulses. A study of 10,000 men and women in the USA found that those who ate pulses at least four times a week had a significantly lower risk of coronary heart disease. This tasty marinated chickpea salad can be put together quickly, stored overnight in the fridge and eaten for lunch the next day. Read more »
