Time flies like a kite in the brilliant sunlight. My life-long friend Marilyn, came and left and we did only a fraction of the things we had planned. Pictured is Marilyn's transportation from San Diego. She's very athletic for an old broad of 73. She brings her bike because she is training for another triathalon.
We did get a 4 -5 mile walk, every morning. She ran, I walked. We'd get up early, have our green drink and grab some yummy energy bars for our A.M. trek. We try to eat 80% raw and here is the recipe for the raw energy bars.
Raw Organic Energy Bars (Entertaining video follows...Nyuk, Nyuk, Nyuk)
3/4 C. almonds, remove skins, soak at least 1 hr., drain.
1 C. dates, pitted, soak at least 1 hr., drain and save soak water.
1/4 C sunflower seeds, soak at least 1 hr, drain.
1/2 C Raisins, soak at least 1 hr., drain.
1/4 C. goji berries, soak at least 1 hr., drain.
2 Tb flax seeds with 1 tb. water, soak 1 hr.
1/4 C. raw cacao powder or nibs.
1/4 C Tahini
1 tsp. chorella
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1. chop dates and almonds into small chunks in a food processor.
2. In a large bowl, add the date/almond mixture, drained sunflower seeds, drained goji berries, drained raisins, flax seed, cacao, tahini, chlorella, cinnamon and mix together. Add a little of date soak water if needed for moisture.
3. Divide mixture into 3 sections and flatten to 1/2 inch on a dehydrator tray lined with Telflex. Set at 110 deg and dehydrate 12-15 hours.
4. At half way point, remove plastic liner and flip the large patties. Cut into bar size and finish dehydrating until they are crisp on outside and soft chewy and moist on inside.
If you don't have a dehydrator, you can use the Essene method. Just set them in the sun all day. Flip at half way point. Just as delicious.
Marilyn and I made a pathetic video of us making the Energy Bars. Larry and Mo... we forgot Curly. We probably mixed him into the energy bars. Nyuk, Nyuk, Nyuk.
( We forgot to give credit to Terry of "My Journey With Candida" for the beautiful raw food aprons. Thank you Terry. We got nervous and forgot half of what we wanted to say. We love you, Terry)
