Tomato Chili with Taco Nut Meat (bean-free)
Makes 4 servings

A vegetable chili made with chopped tomatoes, bell peppers, celery, mushrooms, and corn kernels. Spiced with cumin, and oregano for a real chili flavor similar to the cooked bean version. Top with Taco Nut Meat for an added layer of texture and south west flavor.

3 cups tomatoes, chopped
1 cup red and green bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup celery, chopped
1/4 cup yellow onion, chopped
1/3 cup mushroom, chopped, any type
1/3 cup corn kernels
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 batch Taco Nut Meat, below

Place all ingredients into a mixing bowl, and mix well. Scoop about 1/3 of the mixture into blender and puree. Scoop puree back into mixing bowl.

To serve, scoop into 4 serving bowls. Top with Taco Nut Meat, and enjoy.

Taco Nut Meat
Makes about 1 cup

 

Walnuts are ground and spiced with cumin and coriander to make this taco flavored nut meat crumble. Use it to top salads, soups, and inside wraps to add taco flavor and texture.

1 cup walnuts
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon cumin, ground
2 teaspoons coriander, ground
1 teaspoon Braggs or Nama Shoyu
1/4 teaspoon sea salt, to taste

Will keep for 1 week in fridge.

    Congratulations to Ani’s Raw Food Certification Course, Level 1, Inaugural Class!

Congratulations to Ani’s Raw Food Certification Course, Level 1, Inaugural Class!

We kicked off Ani’s Raw Food Certification Course, Level 1 on March 15, 16, 17th, 2013 to a packed house! It was a weekend of raw food making and eating, eco-green living inspiration, and happiness all around. Experiencing visible transformations as people detox on raw food for 3 days is incredible! The room’s happiness index kept rising up as our days passed, and people glowed.

Ingredients From Our Local Farmers’ Market

Ani’s Raw Food Certification courses are held a couple blocks from the Saturday morning Santa Monica Farmers’ Market, where local farmers bring us seasonal produce that’s been picked just a few hours before. Sometimes, we’ll find heirloom ingredients available for only a week, or better yet…..dry farmed produce. That’s when the plants just thrive on their own, without watering nor chemicals! Fresh, local, seasonal, gluten free, vegan, and organic…what better way to detox and cleanse from urban toxins?

Got Juice?

 

Ani’s Favorite Green Juice Recipe:

Dandelion
Kale
Cilantro
Jalapeño
Fennel
Basil
Turmeric
Cucumber
Celery
Spinach
Lemon

I love green juices, and think of them as my daily multi-vitamin. In the same way I would never think to live off a bottle of vitamins only, I don’t think to starve myself on a 5-10 day juice fast in order to detox (unless I had a tumor to starve or some other acute health crisis).

It seems to be a new trend here in LA that people with unhealthy processed diets and lifestyles, who even smoke, suddenly think it’s okay to starve for 7 days on a juice cleanse to make everything better. How about focusing instead on creating a healthier lifestyle through exercise, clean eating, mediation, and happiness rather than starving? These are the real keys to longevity.

Green juices are wonderful for vitamins and minerals, and for nourishing our bodies. But, it’s so much more FUN and less painful to enjoy delicious Raw Foods while accidentally DETOXing! Feasting on Raw Foods, rather than starving on a juice cleanse, is safer and healthier for you.

We’re designed to be eating whole foods. Starving our bodies on just juice cannibalizes our muscle mass, slows down our metabolism, and will make us gain weight as soon as we eat again (besides throwing off our hormones, along with triggering a slew of other biological reactions). It’s painful to starve ourselves. Why deny ourselves when instead we can feast and enjoy delicious Raw Foods to cleanse and detox?

I’d rather eat clean, detoxifying foods, than starve myself. Wouldn’t you agree?
