Live plant based foods provide the body with life force, energy. Uncooked food is kept in its highest potential of providing the body with  maximum  nutrients, mineral and vitamins.

Align your path...

“When you feel like you are not getting anywhere, through hard work, I like to look at a stone cutter… hammering away at his rock, maybe a hundred times with out a crack, yet the hundred and first hit, it will crack in two, and I know it was not the last hit that did it but all the hard work that had gone before.”

I am grateful to have a signed contract for  my second book, and  have this opportunity to write my very first cook book... Although I have had to redo recipes and write and rewrite, I know I will nail it right eventually. My intention today is persistence… many give up when they don’t realize their full potential and success is just around the corner.
 Keep on going, when your body is tired and you see no gain and all you want to do is sigh, you must pick yourself up with a mood booster and keep on going down your track. Make it bright, happy, joyful on your way and your GOD,  divine energy, angle  or guides will keep you safe, secure and lead you to love, success, peace  and abundance. Believe in your dreams and don’t let anyone else distract you away from what it is YOU want to do in your precious life.
A mood booster, is to change your state... if you are down, or in a low negative mindset, it is vital to change your state to happiness, love , joy,  and gratitude before you can start receiving all it is you desire.

Love and light Nicky x

Macaroni chia cheese

Macaroni cheese was often a popular weekend dish for me as a child  living in New Zealand, I remember it for the cheesy and savoury taste. I loved cheese as a child. In those days we were programmed that 'Cheese' and 'Cows Milk' is the only way to get the best  calcium intake.

These days living the lifestyle I lead and learning  the rewarding benefits  about raw food I can only look back and see how the amounts of pasta and dairy didn’t serve.  As a child I do remember getting sick often, and I do remember that feeling of heaviness after eating a  dairy cheesy milky dish.

Recommendation for adults is 100mg of calcium per day. One cup of milk has 296mg, but there are plenty of reasons you might not want to drink cows milk from personal to medical reasons.

10 Foods high in calcium that don't come from a cow.

Chia Seeds 820mg/100g -  1 Tablespoon = 123 mg 

Seasame 1/4 cup 351 mg calcium

Spinach   1 cup 245 mg 

Black strap molasses 1 Tablesoon 137 mg

Broccoli 2 cups 124 mg

Brazil nuts (I use to eat these when I was breast feeding.) 12 nuts = 90 mg 

Celery -2 cups 81mg 

Almonds 23 nuts aprox - 75mg 

Flaxseed 2 Tablespoon 52 mg 

Cow's milk, 1 % 120MG/100g

I found a great link to how much calcium do we really need...

My passion these days is to share with the world you can get more quality calcium intake in other foods you didn't dream of eating or mixing together and they are all wholesome, raw, and from a plant not a COW! When you think how simple that strategy is 'eating plant based foods, rather than animal' it makes sense your body is only going to turn into a powerhouse for 'Energy and Vitality' 
Nature provided and abundant supply of  live grown foods for us to enjoy and benefit the nutritional value from. Most of these super foods I use in the recipes are ancient and been around for thousands of years. 
We just didn't know about them. When you open your mind to new ways, 

 I am excited to create this dish and I know you will enjoy it as much as I did and it is raw, high in calcium and ever so satisfying.
