Who has not had a brazil nut?  If you have not, perhaps you have not known about the amazing health benefits contained in these guys!  In fact, it only takes about two to three a day to get the benefits offered up by this South American nut.  This nut is called a Brazil nut because, you guessed it, it comes mostly from Brazil!  In fact, this tree does not grow outside the Amazon basin which includes parts of Bolivia and Peru, so this nut can come from one of these three countries.     I will show you below how to make a delicious dairy free milk using Brazil nuts.  This is one of the best ways to gain all the nutritional benefits of this nut.  Of course, you can always pop two or three in your mouth as well :)

Best Ever Cranberry Sauce – No Cooking Required!

Raw Cranberry Sauce

Raw Cranberry Sauce

 Happy Thanksgiving!  

This week, I’m all about Cranberries!  Why?  Because Thanksgiving time gives us the opportunity to eat one of the most powerful foods on the planet.  Yup.  The humble little cranberry.  Cranberries are water harvested, meaning they float on water until they are harvested.  This direct and constant exposure to sunlight helps the cranberries develop greater concentrations of anthocyanins – powerful antioxidants – that provide us with disease fighting benefits. 

I am dedicating this weeks’ post to the humble cranberry and giving you three simple recipes that highlight the delicious and powerful benefits of it.  

First up, the base recipe you will use for the next two:  The Best Ever Cranberry Sauce.  Once you make this, you will never go back to the can.  Plus, it’s a completely raw recipe!
