Pumpkin Spice Kale Chips with Chocolate!

 

pumpkin handsWe’re all about pumpkins over here, and while I tried to make a true pumpkin spice kale chip recipe, my daughter simple could not bare the thought of me hacking into, slaughtering, and eating any member of our pumpkin family. Yes, they all have names and roles! Many of them were covered in sequins and glitter anyway.

cinderella pumpkin

Cinderella’s Pumpkin Carriage

 

So I reached for what I thought would be the next best thing — BUTTERNUT squash! The result was better than pumpkin, bursting with so much more true fall flavor. No worries, you can still substitute pumpkin puree in a pinch.

And, of course, I had to slide chocolate in there somehow. Cacao butter is my secret ingredient! It makes everything Mo Betta 😉

 

kale lots

These are so sweet that you’ll find yourself calling them CANDY KALE! A word of warning… kids TOTALLY love these so hide some for yourself.

Spiced Butternut Squash Kale Chips

Ingredients

3 or more bundles of kale, torn with stems/spines removed

 

Sauce ingredients 

1 cup butternut squash, insides scooped out, seeds removed and diced

1 apple, cored and sliced

1 cup sunflower seeds, soaked

1/4 cup melted cacao butter

2 TBSP cup Lakanta Sugar* (optional)

2 TBSP maple syrup*

2 TBSP lucuma powder* (optional)

1 tsp pumpkin spice

Pinch mineral salt

 

*To make these low glycemic, simply omit the maple syrup and use the Lakanto/Lucuma combination. Likewise, if you don’t have Lakanto or Lucuma, increase the maple syrup by a few tablespoons.

 

First, make the batter…

kale sauce

 

In a high speed blender, puree butternut squash and apple. Next, add in remaining sauce ingredients and buzz until well incorporated.

Consistency should be like a thick salad dressing. Add a little more water to thin out if needed.

 

 

 

 

kale marinate

Next, Get yo hands in it…

Use freshly picked kale! Wilted kale can be bitter. Also, young leaves are tender and they have a sweeter, milder flavor.

Massage the sauce into the kale. The thicker the sauce, the better it will stick. I put mine on very heavy so I get lots of “candy” in each bite!

 

Now, get that crunch goin’ on…

Dehydrate at 115 degrees overnight. Turning them over in the morning. Restrain yourself to not eat them all at this point! Dehydrate for another 6 hours or until crispy.

PERK: Since this recipe has cacao butter, you’ll find they have more of a crunch rather than a crispy flakey texture that disintegrates in your mouth.

Keep the moisture out…

Store in an airtight container with a moisture pack or paper towel.

Pancakes! Gluten-Free & Sugar-Free

Banana Nut Chocolate Chip Cookie Cakes (Baby Pancakes) 

These are highly requested in my home. I call them “cookie cakes” because of the size. Since my focus is low glycemic, we now skip drenching them in maple syrup. I often just rub them with butter and we eat them on the go with our hands like cookies. If you really want syrup, make sure you go with Grade B Pure Maple Syrup.

1 cup gluten free all purpose baking mix
1 large egg
i cup banana, chopped
1 tablespoon melted butter or coconut oil
3/4 cups almond milk (any milk will work)
1/4 cups almonds, chopped
1/4 cup sugar free raw chocolate bar, chopped
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon pure almond extract
pancakes milk pour
Whisk all ingredients together until well blended.
Preheat griddle to medium (350 F)
Spoon out batter onto the hot, lightly greased griddle. Cook until the pancake’s edges are dry, bubbles form, and the top is no longer shiney. Flip with spatula to cook other side.

Turmeric Broth for Inflammation

turmeric broths

 

You’re probably most familiar with turmeric being the main spice in curry and by it’s sunny golden color you can clearly see why it is used as a natural coloring agent for foods like mustards, butters and cheeses.

What you may not know, is that the root of turmeric has been used for medicine making in both ancient and modern cultures. The lengthy list of ailments that it helps with, make it sound like a cure-all plant.

Studies show that turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties and modifies immune system responses. In fact, one study showed turmeric to be more effective at PREVENTING joint inflammation rather than *reducing* joint inflammation.

 

Dr. Andrew Weil references the comprehensive study of turmeric by respected ethnobotanist James A. Duke, Phd, and says that he found turmeric to “outperform many pharmaceuticals in its effects against several chronic, debilitating diseases, and does so with virtually no adverse side effect”.

Dr. Weil went on to share his top 3 reasons to eat turmeric:

  • Alzheimer’s disease: Duke found more than 50 studies on turmeric’s effects in addressing Alzheimer’s disease. The reports indicate that extracts of turmeric contain a number of natural agents that block the formation of beta-amyloid, the substance responsible for the plaques that slowly obstruct cerebral function in Alzheimer’s disease.

 

  • Arthritis: Turmeric contains more than two dozen anti-inflammatory compounds, including six different COX-2-inhibitors (the COX-2 enzyme promotes pain, swelling and inflammation; inhibitors selectively block that enzyme). By itself, writes Duke, curcumin – the component in turmeric most often cited for its healthful effects – is a multifaceted anti-inflammatory agent, and studies of the efficacy of curcumin have demonstrated positive changes in arthritic symptoms.

 

  • Cancer: Duke found more than 200 citations for turmeric and cancer and more than 700 for curcumin and cancer. He noted that in the handbook Phytochemicals: Mechanisms of Action, curcumin and/or turmeric were effective in animal models in prevention and/or treatment of colon cancer, mammary cancer, prostate cancer, murine hepatocarcinogenesis (liver cancer in rats), esophageal cancer, and oral cancer. Duke said that the effectiveness of the herb against these cancers compared favorably with that reported for pharmaceuticals.

ABOVE FROM DOCTOR WEIL – He recommends Turmeric Tea.

Below is my bee*utiful Savory Turmeric Broth glistening in the sunlight! It’s also made with carrots, garlic, onion and celery!

bone broth golden jar

 

Adding turmeric into broths makes an excellent base for soups, or you can do like we do and drink it straight from a jar as is. If you are buying canned soups or eating them from fast food chains, check the ingredient list. Many food manufacturers have opted out of the real deal and now add yellow dye to make it look healthy and appealing. Not only is this skimping on the incredible healing effects of turmeric but yellow dye (banned in many other countries) has been associated with some scary health issues.

CLICK HERE for my webpage of Broth recipes. There’s a veggie base (vegan) and also instructions for making Bone Broth. I pack in as much turmeric as I possibly can and the flavor is THE BEST!

PLEASE NOTE: High doses of turmeric can act as a blood thinner and may cause stomach upset. If you take blood thinners, are about to have surgery, are pregnant or have gallbladder disease, you should avoid turmeric unless approved by your healthcare practitioner.
