As you know if you follow sports at all, this weekend is the Super Bowl.
Now I love football almost as much as I love soccer, and there’s nothing I’d rather be doing on Sunday night than watching the big game – I think these two teams could be a great match up – but I don’t love all of the foods we typically think of as Super Bowl eats:
- Meaty chili
Every single one of those foods is full of acid!
But the good news is that you can watch the game and indulge in some delicious, low acid foods you’re going to love.
Today I want to share some recipes with you that are going to feel right at home during the big game, but they’re full of healthy, raw nutrients instead of acid.
All of these recipes are easy for your digestive system to process, bursting with vitamins and minerals, and are alkaline, so they’ll give you plenty of energy as you watch the game this weekend.
Raw Hummus [Serves 4]
2 cups garbanzo beans
5 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup raw sesame oil
1/4 extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup raw tahini
3/4 cup filtered water
1 tsp. sea salt (Celtic Grey, Himalayan, or Redmond Real Salt)
Soak garbanzo beans overnight fully submerged in filtered water. In the morning, strain garbanzo beans in a strainer and let the strainer sit for 12 hours minimum before using (this is called sprouting). The garbanzo beans may swell almost twice their original size.
Add all the ingredients to a food processor, and blend until creamy and smooth. Serve with vegetable sticks.
Roasted Cauliflower Crunchies
1 head of cauliflower, chopped into bite-sized pieces.
1 tsp. smoked paprika
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
Preheat oven to 400º. Toss all the ingredients together on a baking sheet. Roast for 25 – 30 minutes until browned and crispy.
Chocolate Chia Pudding
1/2 cup cashews
2 cups coconut water (or filtered water)
2 tbsp. cacao powder
1 tsp. sea salt (Celtic Grey, Himalayan, Redmond Real Salt)
1 tbsp. vanilla (if using Medicine Flowers Vanilla – 20 drops)
2 tbsp. coconut oil
1 tsp. cinnamon
Blend above on high till creamy, then add:
6 tbsp. chia seeds
Blend low for 1 minute to keep chia intact, OR mix chia in with a spoon (gently stir), then set in refrigerator for 3-5 hours.
Garnish with cacao nibs shavings.
Guacamole and Veggie Sticks
2 Hass avocados
2 teaspoons white or red onion, chopped
2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tablespoons plum tomato, finely chopped
2 teaspoons jalapeño, diced (or Serrano Chile) (optional)
1⁄2 teaspoon salt (Celtic Sea Salt, Himalayan, or Redmond Real Salt)
Combine 1 tablespoon of the cilantro with 1 teaspoon of the onion and 1 teaspoon of the jalapeño in a medium mixing bowl. Add the salt and using the back of a spoon push the ingredients against the bottom of the bowl to completely mash.
Add the avocados into the mixture, and using a fork, mash the avocados into the mixture to make an almost smooth, but still chunky, blend. Add in the remaining cilantro, onion, and jalapeño. Stir in the tomatoes and lime juice and season to taste. Serve with your favorite veggie sticks and enjoy!
1 tomato (large)
6 sundried tomatoes
2 tablespoons garlic, finely chopped ½ red bell pepper
¼ to ½ yellow squash
¼ yellow onion, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon sea salt (Celtic grey, Himalayan, Redmond Real Salt)
1 teaspoon of Braggs Liquid Aminos (optional)
Place all ingredients in the food processor with the “S” blade, pulse a few times first to chop ingredients, and then switch to blend in the food processor to obtain desired consistency.
Let sit for an hour then serve. I’d love to hear what you’re going to make for the Super Bowl.
