Whole Wheat Artisan Bread


My aunt Irene shared this video on Facebook yesterday and I, drooling, said to myself, "Well, THAT looks easy peasy! I wonder if it would work with WHOLE wheat??" So...I immediately went to work! Although, it's SO easy it didn't take hardly any work at all.

I am NOT a bread maker and the bread that I have made has always turned out, well...LAME. So needless to say I didn't have high hopes that this bread would turn out as good as the bread in the video looked. Well guess what??!!!! It turned out AWESOME!!!!! Just LOOK at it!!

All I did was substitute the all purpose white flour for this whole wheat pastry flour and I used a silicone non stick baking sheet instead of spraying the pot with oil

*update: I made the bread again the next day using regular whole wheat flour and it was equally as perfect! 

I am looking forward to making this all of the time and varying it with different herbs.

It's Always Autumn Homemade Artisan Bread Recipe{Easiest Bread Recipe Ever!}

 It was SO good on my veggie sandwich!!

This is going to be a staple in my home. 

Go and make this TODAY!!!!

With love,

Lentil Soup

Seriously everybody LOVES my soups! :) They are warm and comforting and delicious especially in the cold winter  months. They are inexpensive, quick and easy to make and are great for feeding and satisfying a large crowd. 


4 quarts (16 c.) of pure water
1 t. Ground Marjoram
1 t. Sea Salt
2 Bay Leaves
1 6 oz. can of Organic Tomato Paste
1 Organic Onion, chopped 
3-4 Organic Garlic Cloves, minced
2-3 Organic Celery Stalks, diced 
2 1/2 c. Organic Lentils, rinsed
2-3 Organic Potatoes, diced 
12 small Organic Carrots, diced 

1/2 c. Barley

While chopping veggies add water to pressure cooker and turn up to "High".

Add everything to the pot.


Wait until the pressure cooker comes to pressure. You will know this because you will hear and see the steam come out like, "pshhhhhhh!" As soon as it does turn it down to "Low". 

Set timer for 25 minutes.

When done, move pot off of element and let sit until dinner time. But...
If you are making it right before dinner it's kind of a pain to let the steam out because if you do it immediately the soup will also come out with the steam take a little bit of effort to slowly pulse the steam valve until it all comes out.  

Add fresh ground pepper AFTER cooking never cook it.

I know you will really like this soup!

Enjoy as is or you can serve it in a whole wheat bread bowl or over any whole grain pasta with a salad and bread. 

When you make this please let me know what you think.

Hummus is a vegan staple! But don't be fooled that all are healthy! Classically store bought and restaurant versions are extremely HIGH in F A T as they are made with Olive Oil, which we know now that oils are highly processed and NOT good for us!! As usual HOME MADE (without stuff we don't want in it) is BEST! :)
Hummus works as a great dip for veggies but I also enjoy it spread on Ezekiel pita bread and topped with a Greek salad (sans feta of course).

My "lunner" today took me 10 minutes to prepare from scratch. I didn't even make the salad...which I should have to show you....I just made it simpler and faster topping it only with tomatoes, cucumbers, and romaine leaves.


In a food processor add:

2 cans of organic garbanzo beans drained and rinsed.
1/4-1/2 c Raw Tahini (or raw sesame seeds)
3-5 garlic cloves
Juice from 1 Lemon
1 medium zucchini

Blend until creamy! 

Optional Add In's:
Sea salt
Red Bell Pepper (Green are unripe)
Oil/Sulfite-free Organic Sundried Tomatoes

To liking:
Red Onion
Raw Greek Olives 
Sea salt
Red Wine Vinegar

I remembered that I had some Peloponnese olives and added them to my lunch!

Drink Your Greens

Dr. Graham ( explains in his book The 80/10/10 Diet about the importance of getting those precious greens into our daily diet. He recommends 1-2 pounds per day. But if you're like me, you don't always want to eat a huge salad. The solution? Drink them! 

I love making a banana and green smoothie, especially in the winter when I don't want to have anything cold like frozen fruit. 

Banana Green Smoothie

4-10 ripe (spotted) Bananas
1 head of Romaine or 1 lb. Spinach or Kale
or ANY other green. 
1 T. Ground Flax (optional)
1 T. Daily Green Boost (optional)

This next blended greens elixir I absolutely love because it is so refreshing and makes me feel incredible! 

Apple Green Goddess 

4 organic apples
1 organic cucumber
1 lemon - peeled
Large handful of organic parsley 
1 lb. of greens 
1 T. Daily Green Boost (optional) 
1 T. Ground Flax (optional)

Don Bennett of recommends Daily Green Boost along with Vitamin D, B12 and is an advocate for supplementing properly with Iodine as well. 

Be like Popeye and green up people!! Nutrify your precious body!!

Raw Vegan Sour Cream

For Valentine's Day I wanted to make baked potatoes with "sour cream" and green onions. I have been eating a mostly raw vegan diet for 7 years now and I can't believe I have never made this before. It was amazing! I truly thought I was eating sour cream. It's SO simple to make. 


In a high speed blender add: 

2 c. Raw Cashews
Juice of 2 or more limes
1 t. Sea Salt 
Pure water for desired thickness 

Blend until smooooooth.

Dalop onto whatever you would use sour cream for. 

Happy savoring!! 


P.S. Remember that nuts and seeds are high in F A T. Use them sparingly. No more than a HANDFUL a day and if you need to lose weight, avoid them.

Oil Free Whole Wheat Tortillas

Dilemma: You just want to eat a burrito but you don't want to eat oil. 

Rant: It is SO difficult to eat out and find something other than salads without dressing, steamed veggies, rice and baked potatoes. Don't get me wrong...I'm grateful for at least those items. But sometimes you just want a veggie burrito am I right!? Come on world! Hurry up and catch up with the science of the times! Oil is NOT HEALTHY for our bodies. 

Alright I'll stop and just give you the fab recipe for these rad tortillas. :)


6 c. Whole Wheat Flour 
6 T. Ground Flax
1 t. Sea Salt
3 c. Pure Water

Mix and roll into golf sized balls. 

With rolling pin roll into very thin tortilla. 

Place on hot non stick griddle and cook for 30 seconds or so on both sides.

Fill with yumminess! 

Enjoy! RMM
