Ketoflex Recipe: Chocolate-Coconut-Peanut Butter-Blackberry Shake

This very densely nutritious (i.e.,fills you up) Ketoflex shake is a combined recipe of the breakfast smoothie that I generally have every morning thanks to Chris Wark's anti-cancer regimen, and the keto ingredients (coconut milk, cacao, and peanut butter).

I am satisfied that Chris Wark's recipe is low-carb enough and high fibre enough to be a good fit for this superfood shake / smoothie.  At the time I write this I am still struggling with the fat adapting part of this diet.  The original recipe did not have any fruit or berries in it and tasted quite flat and a little bitter.  

So, I tweaked it with Chris Wark's recipe and with a cup of frozen blackberries from my fridge.

If you are already using a ketogenic way of eating, you will know that you can work out your own fats+ proteins+ carbs ratio that fits for you.  If you are not on a vegan ketogenic diet, you can go to the tab above and click on My Ketoflex Recipes and read a little about what they are about.

INGREDIENTS:

Put the following into a blender carafe:

  • 2 T. Chia or Flax Seed
  • 1 teaspoon Moringa (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon mixed Sea Vegetable flakes (your choice-- for minerals)
  • 1/3 C. Full-fat Coconut Milk (from a can)
  • 2 C. Water
Wash the following and chop up before adding to the carafe:
  • 1 inch of fresh Ginger
  • Apple (cored and chopped)
  • 1 handful fresh Cilantro
  • 2 Celery ribs
Add last:
  • 1 C. blackberries (I used frozen berries-- you might want to use ice cubes if you don't have frozen berries)
  • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon Stevia powder
Blend up and drink.  Makes enough for two good-size adult shakes.

3 Quick Delicious Refreshing Carrot Salads

 These 3 carrot salads are all vegan, but not all familiar. It only goes to show that carrots have a life of their own in the Veggie World. When I go scouting for a delectable and easy-to-make vegan recipe, I like to think I vet the best on the Internet. I check out various social venues-- Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest-- and google for the top-pagers as well. Then I read over the selection and toss the ones that sound a little too traditional or fussy.  1.  Viral TikTok Carrot Salad with Asian Flare (with Instagram's Stephanie Manzinali that.veganbabe) *that.veganbabe* demonstrates how to put this ribbon salad together in a flash. You will find other great salads that include carrots among her repertoire as well. Go HERE to the post. 2. Spicy Carrot Salad on Youtube with Everyday Gourmet  This looks very tangy and adventuresome for people who like a little zing in their summertime meals. Carrots are sweet, and some honey is also added to the recipe (I guess you could us

The Power of Flowers

Fragrant Flowers on our Morning Walk In my more youthful days of gardening I was all about organic food plants.  As I get older I have begun to enjoy planting and caring for flowers and herbs more. That is not to say that I do not have organic food gardening as a priority!  This year my husband has stepped into the gap in a big way (the 'gap' being my spending less time in the garden).  He has a 5-gallon pail of compost tea burbling away at all times, another pail of comfrey tea brewing under the grape arbor, and is experimenting with strewing agricultural lime in any patch of ground my eyes have fallen upon.   We have just put in  Saskatoon berry bushes, a few Sea Buckthorns, and 3 Sour Cherry trees (or bushes or whatever they will be) as well as the usual assortment of greens (kale, chard, collards, cilantro, parsley, romaine, etc.) and beans and a vast forest of little tomato plants, many donated by kind friends and neighbors.   We also have a square foot herb
