Ok, so YES we are using almond butter instead of peanut butter (because peanuts tend to be high mold carriers and almonds provide better fat and nutrition than peanuts ). Peanuts are not good for those with Candida overgrowth because can’t eat mold when you’re trying to kill "mold" right?! You could also sub cashew butter, etc so long as it’s unsweetened (no sugar if you are on a Candida Detox).
Enjoy this as a breakfast, snack, pre- or post-workout drink or meal replacement.
1 cup water
1-1.5 cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk
2 Tbsp carob or cacao powder
1 large handful mixed leafy greens
2 large spoonsful unsweetened almond butter
2 large spoonsful virgin coconut oil
2 scoops COLLATRIM PLUS powder (available through my ONLINE STORE at wholesale)
1 handful unsweetened shredded coconut
2-3 pitted dates (use stevia, xylitol, Swerve or monkfruit if you are on Candida Detox)
1-2 handfuls ice
Optional: 1 scoop NOW FOODS unflavored/unsweetened egg white protein powder (for extra protein)
Optional: RAW Bee pollen
Optional: 1/2 Avocado (adds creamy texture, more filling, added nutrition, healthy fats)
Optional: Banana (only if you are NOT on Candida Detox)
Add all ingredients to high-power blender or food processor and serve chilled. This was my life-saver breakfast in the 1st trimester of my pregnancy when I suddenly could NOT stomach eggs anymore. The Cacao gave me energy. The sweet was a nice, cool change that went down easy and held me over for about 3 hours.
*NOTE: COLLATRIM PLUS can be used to assist weight loss in a healthy way. It does not curb appetite or do any damage to the body like some “weight-loss” products on the market. I personally add it because the collagen is so good for our gut, skin, bones, joints & other connective tissues. My body appreciates thrives on the extra lean protein, too!
Raw Chunky Marinara
4 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Tbsp fresh basil
2 tsp dried oregano
3-4 large garlic cloves
1/2 tsp celtic sea salt
dash black pepper
1 cup diced red bell pepper
1 cup sundried tomatoes
1 cup chopped or grape tomatoes
Optional: crushed red pepper or cayenne, to taste, for spicy sauce
Add ingredients in order listed to Vita-mix, Food Processor or blender, lightly puree (I leave it a bit chunky), and serve fresh (cold) over raw zucchini “noodles” or cooked spaghetti squash “noodles” for a Candida Detox-friendly spaghetti. You can also serve over rice, quinoa, gluten-free noodles, etc. Add a splash of water if the marinara is too thick for your liking.
You can get creative with pizzas, eggplant parmesan, tomato soup, etc. Add ground turkey or beef if you want a meat-sauce.
Somehow, Zach and I made this recipe up last second with what we had in the pantry and fridge….and it worked!! LIKE….amazingly well!!
Place your roast in a large crock pot on low heat. Add all ingredients to crock pot, liquids first. I use coarse celtic sea salt and sprinkle enough to cover the top of all the meat. Then I lightly sprinkle the entire top of the meat and liquids with a dusting of white pepper. Last, sprinkle your roast with all the other spices, cover and let slow cook overnight or for at least 5-6 hours.
Enjoy with tacos, burritos, taco/fiesta salads, as a main dish, etc. It will melt in yo mouth Amiga!!!
I love this over a bed of greens or shredded cabbage, rice (optional), pinto or black beans, heaps of chopped cilantro, fresh diced white onion, pico de gallo/salsa, and extra HOLY GUACAMOLE!! We topped ours additionally with Annie’s 505 Green Chile sauce.
Candida peeps: No rice or tacos shells. Beans are allowed. Eat as main dish or on top of taco salad, etc. You don’t have to worry about the orange juice in the marinade because you aren’t drinking the marinade and it’s such small amount compared to the size of the roast and the portion you will eat
