Organic White Chocolate Holiday Bark

In my attempt to satisfy my sweet tooth this Holiday season, without indulging in the usual sugary and fattening treat, I was drawn to the idea of white chocolate. I’ve done a lot of reading lately on healthy fats and their ability to lower bad cholesterol, and decided that I needed more of these “good fats” in my diet. With wintertime being an ideal starting point, I came up with this recipe for organic white chocolate and decided to give it a try. I added this year’s Organic Holiday mix in a special 8 oz. size, (included in a special recipe bundle), to give it an even greater nutritional boost. The richness of this bark can be tasted all around, with its addition of the premium ingredients Divine Organics offers.

  • ¼ C Divine Organics Coconut Blossom Nectar
  • * Optional – 1 Tbsp. *Pure Vanilla extract (try to find a natural one with no added alcohol – you can use ground vanilla – but you will get flecks through the chocolate)

Instructions:

  1. Line the 8 inch square baking pan with parchment paper
  2. Scatter the Organic Holiday Mix into the lined baking pan, distributing evenly
  3. In a high speed blender, add remaining ingredients, and blend to form a smooth batter.

Rainforest Awareness Month

web-rainforest-no-text
Everyone wants to save the Rainforest, but most people don’t know how or think their individual actions will not make a difference. NOT TRUE! You can make small and simple green choices everyday that will help plants, animals and people in far away rainforests.

THE FOREST
One and a half acres of land are lost every second every day – and no stop in sight.
amazon_firerainforest pic 2
Rainforests are logged worldwide for their valuable timber. Logging is driven by complex factors.  Two examples are subsidies by governments in tropical countries for slum dwellers and farmers to clear and settle forest land, and consumer demand in industrialized countries for tropical products like hardwoods, railroad ties, beef and palm oil.
Thin tropical topsoils exposed to heavy rains erode rapidlly, carrying away what nutrients they contained and exposing even more infertile sub-soils.  Expensive fertilizer application is required increasingly over time but much is lost to the same heavy rains that take away topsoil. Even later abandoned, these lands have been so degraded that forest cannot recover by the natural processes of regeneration.
One of many foundations which helps to restore soil and trees, is Rainprogram, you can read more here www.rainprogram.org and also look at www.rainforest-alliance.org

THE ANIMALS
amazon-rainforest-animals1indonesien-affenbaby
More than half of Earth’s rain forests have already been lost forever to the insatiable human demand for wood and arable land. Rain forests that once grew over 14 percent of the land on Earth now cover only about 6 percent. Many animals are deprived of their homes, they are starved to death, killed or getting extinct.
The numbers are dire: 150-200 species become extinct every 24 hours, and approximately 15 percent of mammal species and 11 percent of bird species are threatened with extinction.

The Alliance for Zero Extinction hosts about 88 sites and foundations which actively protect animal life in the rainforests. If you want to get involved, you find here an array of choices: www.zeroextinction.org We also liked www.rainforest-rescue.org

THE PEOPLE
Menina_da_etnia_Terena0223penan
Indigenous peoples are often not recognized as the owners of their land, even if they have lived there for hundreds or thousands of years. Without official titles, many indigenous communities have had little recourse but to watch as government or corporate interventions have exploited and destroyed huge tracts of their forests without their consent.With secure rights to their lands and natural resources, indigenous peoples can better defend their communities against unwanted development pressures. Indigenous peoples are effective guardians of the forests they live in. Today, most of the world’s large tracts of conserved tropical forests are in the hands of indigenous peoples.

The Rainforest foundation gives wonderful opportunities to help, they offer fun activities for adults and children. Check them out here: www.rainforestfoundation.org Please also read here www.treehugger.com

WHAT WE CAN DO
fairtrade_logorainforest-alliancevegan logo

  • Just say NO to palm oil. Palm oil, found in half of all processed foods in the US, is a key contributor to rainforest deforestation.
  • Avoid furniture and other products made from threatened rainforest woods like: Mahogany,Rosewood and Ebony. Logging and the new roads it necessitates is a major driver of long term rainforest destruction.
  • Learn and Teach others about the importance of the environment and how we can help save rainforests. Teach kids about the health of our planet. Empower them to make responsible choices. Help them make the connection between choosing foods without palm oil or conserving fossil fuels and protecting the rainforests.
  • 60-70% of deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon results from cattle ranching. Meat production is non-sustainable. Period. It affects all countries, the waste of water and crop has huge impact on the ecological balance. Eat (more) vegan foods.
  • Oil extraction in the Amazon has increased dramatically with sometimes devastating social and environmental consequences. Approximately 70% of the entire Peruvian Amazon in now leased by oil companies.
  • Support:  Pick a region or project of particular interest to you and be assured your gift is directly contributing to the Rainforest program(s) of your choice.
  • Buy organic, fair-trade, rainforest alliance approved food products. 

Check out our DIVINE ORGANICS Super-Cell-food-Powders: The plants are harvested by hand from the indigenous community in the foothills of Northern Thailand and they sustain their families, villages and forests first, before they sell the precious herbs and botanicals.

How to store Irish Moss?

Dry Moss should always be stored in a dark cool place, it does not need to be sealed in the pouch bag. The salt is a natural preservative and the moss will not get bad. Never store dry Moss in the fridge, it is too moist and the salt crystals will not be able to protect the moss. You may keep your moss for good over a year.

Soaked hydrated Moss should be stored in the fridge. Use a clean glass jar or bowl and change the water every day and it will keep fresh up to 2 weeks, but will loose with time a little of its gelling property.

Irish Moss paste will keep fresh in the fridge for up to 3 weeks. Make sure that you use a clean glass jar with a lid and use always a clean spoon.

Irish Moss paste can also be frozen. It is convenient to use an ice cube tray and fill it with Irish Moss paste. When it is completely frozen, wrap it in a pouch bag, don’t keep it open. It is very convenient to have the portion size moss ready on hand when needed.

How to prepare Irish Moss Paste

fresh irish moss paste in a glass jar
To make Irish Moss Paste:

1. Soak 1/2 cup of dry moss in lukewarm water for a few minutes, then rinse to clean from salt and sand. Work with your hands through the moss and clean from dirt, pebbles, blue rope pieces (leftover from harvest) and soak again in fresh water, make sure you have plenty of water to cover and choose a bigger bowl, because the moss will expand.

If you are short on time, use warm or lukewarm water to soften the moss faster.If you have time, you can also put it into the refrigerator over night and continue next day.

2. At the next rinse check again on dirt or any brown parts, rinse very well. Soak again.

3. When the moss has become white, soft yellow color, multiplied its volume and got soft, it is ready to process it to paste. Blend 1 1/2 cups well hydrated (soaked) moss with 3/4 cup water in a high speed blender.

dry irish moss  = irish moss soaked+irish moss soaked+irish moss soaked
4. 1 cup dry moss will yield 3 cups soaked moss. You might have plenty. Store the Irish Moss paste in a clean glass container (Mason jar, etc) in the refrigerator.

Irish moss paste will last in the refrigerator for a at least 14 days, most of the time 3 weeks. If you have to much moss prepared you may also use the ice cube tray and fill it with Irish Moss Paste and freeze, you have perfect portions you can work with.

5 great ways to use Irish Moss Paste

After you have prepared Irish Moss Paste, it is ready to go into your food creation:

1. Irish Moss Paste gives a creamy, light texture to raw food desserts:
You may imitate fluffy cheese cake fillings or without use of eggs, heavy cream, or yogurt. Raw Food cakes lighten up, because you cut back on cashew cream, coconut oil or any other oily rich ingredient.
For the recipe: In your high speed blender add all ingredients and add the Irish Moss Paste at the very end. If your dish calls for cacao butter, which has to be warmed up, add the Irish Moss before the Cacao Butter.

2. Irish Moss Paste can be used to firm up raw desserts:
Firming up a raw dessert can be achieved by adding coconut oil, cacao butter or nut-cream and stored in the refrigerator or freezer; however, if you want to stay on the calorie-low side, add Irish Moss Paste. The gelatin property in the Moss firms up faster and keeps the cream in shape, even when you remove it from the fridge.
For the recipe: It will take about an hour to firm up your dish, better you keep it for a few hours in the fridge (mocked whipped cream made from cashews: 4 hours in the fridge)

3. Irish Moss Paste replaces some of the fat in dressings and sauces:
Irish Moss Paste’s emollient qualities keep the salad dressings light and creamy, cream cheese clean and light, Ice cream, and the paste can also be added to veggienaise, mayonnaise, salsas, and even hummus. Therefore Irish Moss is a wonderful low calorie weight maintenance tool.
For the recipe: replace the equal amount of oil, coconut butter, or dairy with Irish Moss Paste.

4. Makes smoothies extra thick and creamy
Who does not like a yummy creamy smoothie or nut milk?
For the recipe: Add 1/2 to 1 TBSP of Irish Moss Paste per 1 cup of liquid to your nut milk or smoothie. If you prepare a chocolate based smoothie you might need to adjust the sweetener.

5. Irish Moss Paste is a simple beautifying gel:

  • Add to your shampoo to make it extra smooth and creamy
  • Add to your shower gel to add an extra lathering and skin friendly property
  • Facial Mask: relax with a layer of 2-3 TBSP of pure Irish Moss Paste on the cleaned face, the minerals and moisture will rejuvenate the skin and give it the healthy glow. 20 minutes is good time to find peace.
  • Hair replenish: into the damp hair massage 3-4 TBSP of pure Irish Moss Paste and wrap with a towel. Rinse after 10 min or keep longer, the hair will re-mineralize and the moss helps to detoxify the scalp.
  • Apply on skin rash, dry or damaged skin, aching feet, dry skin: always apply on clean skin if possible and rinse with cool or lukewarm water.

Summer Nuts

nuts for the hot season
Warm weather can help us create new nutritional habits. Everything is delivered by mother nature fresh: all the wonderful fruits, greens and veggies. It is a great time to go for salads, veggie smoothies, and enhance a boring diet with fruit salads.

The cooling qualities in leafy greens and fruits refresh the body and mind, it is much easier to flush out toxins and extra pounds than in the cold season.

One question often asked: HOW ABOUT NUTS DURING THE HOT SEASON? 

Nuts are valuable source of plant protein, minerals and vitamins. A handful a day would be a great suggestion as daily intake– and this handful of nuts per day can be consumed as hydrating and nourishing nutmilks, in raw cremes, sweet or savory. But over-consumption will do not good: despite to all healthy benefits, Nuts can make us feel heavy and sluggish, and we learn by experience that nuts are much harder to digest compared to proteins from fresh greens.

During the sommer months we want to keep our digestion extra light and choose refreshing foods, so we picked these four nuts, which will keep you healthy nourished, light and refreshed:

#1) ALMOND

Divine Organics AlmondsThe delicately flavorful and versatile almond is available throughout the year. Almonds make a healthy and tasty snack, a classy nutmilk, yummy nutbutter, an addition to smoothies, ice creams, raw sweet and savory dishes. During the hot season make sure you consume raw almonds instead of roasted (and often salted) ones, you may sprout and dehydrate them if you wish; use raw almonds in nutmilk and other preparations — in this way the almonds will keep the body temperature neutral. Almonds are rich in Calcium, Iron and Magnesium and our number 1 choice of summer nuts.

#2) HAZELNUT

Divine Organics Turkish HazelnutsHazelnuts,also called Filberts, are rich in B vitamins, Vitamin E and Manganese. Consumption of raw Hazelnuts, when snacked straight from the bag or processed to nutmilks, will let us feel light. Hazelnuts keep the body temperature neutral and all extra energy can go into fun outdoor activities and sports without slowing us down anywhere.

Therefore we choose Hazelnuts as our number 2 summer nut.

#3) MACADAMIA NUT

macadamia-nutsThe sweet, refreshing macadamia nuts are brimming with essential minerals, vitamins and heart-friendly mono-unsaturated fatty acids. Additionally they provide selenium. Selenium is a cardio-protective micro-mineral which is not so easy to get in regular diet. Because the Hawaiian Macadamia Nut is the most delicious of its kind and makes us think of flower garlands and white beaches, we decided to make it to summer nut #3.

 #4) CASHEWS

Divine Organics Raw CashewsCashews are thermal cooling. This is one reason that over-consumption of cashew nuts in the cold season can cause diarrhea or digestion problems. During the summer our body can deal with the cooling quality and their acidity. And because cashew nuts are so versatile in making raw cremes, raw ice creams, raw cheese and pastry, we voted Cashews to our number 3 summer nut. Just make sure you eat them raw and organic.

#5) PILI NUT

Divine Organics Pili Nuts in a bowPili Nuts are still relatively unknown in the States, people are always positively surprised how delicious the soft kernel is when snacked for the first time.

Pilis are a rich source of heart healthy omegas, which play an important role in brain function and may aid in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. They contain all 8 essential amino acids which is vital for healthy muscles, healthy bones and skin, brain balance, liver detoxification, and nerve cell health. Pili Nuts should be consumed raw and they will add their refreshing quality on hot summer days.

3 Essential Benefits of Blueberries

  • Sweet, juicy blueberries are rich in pro-anthocyanin,  which is the antioxidant of the blue pigment in the skin. 100 g fresh berries provide only 57 calories, however, they  are amongst the highest anti-oxidant value fruits. Altogether, the phyto-chemical compounds in the blueberry help rid off harmful oxygen-derived free radicals from the body. ORAC of 100 g fresh blueberry is 5562 TE. 
  • Further, research studies suggest that chlorogenic acid in blueberries may help lower blood sugar levels and may control blood-glucose levels in type-II diabetes mellitus condition.
  • High in Manganese, Copper and Iron which is necessary in the process of formation and production for red blood cells.

  • Sprinkle half of the Mango cubes on the crust, then pour 1/2 of the coconut cream over the crust.
  • Sprinkle with more Mango and 1/2 of the Raspberries.
  • Add the other 1/2 of the Raspberries to the coconut cream which is still in the Vitamix and blend it creamy. Pour 1/2 of the beautiful pink Raspberry cream over the cake ( i made a spiral).
  • Then add the blueberries to the remaining cream in the Vitamix and blend thoroughly. The result is a delicious Blueberry Cream which bursts of live energy of antioxidants.
  • Toss over the cake (i circled and filled the spaces between the fruits)
  • If you have any remaining fruits, arrange them on top nicely.
  • Let the cake settle in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight. (Don’t freeze, the fruits will get watery when you defrost)

June 5: World Environment Day

world-environment-dayWorld Environment Day (WED) is the United Nations’ principal vehicle for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the environment. Over the years it has grown to be a broad, global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated by stakeholders in over 100 countries. It also serves as the ‘people’s day’ for doing something positive for the environment, galvanizing individual actions into a collective power that generates an exponential positive impact on the planet.

In support of the UN designation of 2014 as the International Year of Small Island Developing States (SIDS), WED this year will adopt SIDS in the broader context of climate change as its theme. Our objectives are to help build momentum towards the Third International Conference on SIDS in September and encourage a greater understanding of the importance of SIDS and of the urgency to help protect the islands in the face of growing risks and vulnerabilities, particularly as a result of climate change. We believe WED will be an excellent opportunity to raise a call for solidarity with the islands.

“Planet Earth is our shared island, let us join forces to protect it.”
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon at the launch of the 2014 International Year of Small Islands and Developing States

What action can I take to become agent of change?
