Black Orange Foods

 

Some of the most nutrient-dense cell-protective foods on the planet are black and orange. These superfoods, herbs and traditional ingredients attain their robust color from their antioxidant (pigment) content. Black foods may look frightening, but they just contain a rich amount of longevity-inducing, energizing rare nutrients, including anthocyanins which may help lower the risk of cancer, diabetes and heart disease. Orange foods contain carotenoids (pro vitamin A compounds) which bolster your cells and boost your body’s vitality.

 

This holiday season, protect your family with a variety of nature’s very best black and orange foods:

The #1 thing I consume – besides spring water – is my Tonic Herbal Skyrocket Elixir. I wish to share with you this most important recipe I have ever created, and perhaps will ever create.

But before I do, let us put into perspective something about food and medicine. And by these 2 categories of edibles I mean:

Food (caloric foods – macronutrient dominant)
&
Medicine (herbs – micronutrient dominant)

Foods will come and go. Today, your body might absolutely thrive on almonds. Tomorrow, you may get an allergic reaction from almonds (they are after all an agriculturally tweaked food, usually harvested from grafted limbs on trees, but I dirges). Almonds are in the food category. All foods are like this – we need to rotate them regularly – or sometimes give some up for a while.

Name any food or food type, and people have healed by simply abstaining from it.

Herbs – specifically tonic herbs (plants and mushrooms and their extracts appropriate and safe for daily use – herbs that impart cumulative effects with ongoing near-daily usage over a lifetime) don’t need to be rotated as much. Taking small breaks from tonic herbs has benefit, but for the most part taking more of or more consistently the renowned roots, barks, mushrooms, berries and leaves known as tonics dramatically improves one’s immune system and ability to resist stress.

Name any traditionally used tonic herb, and millions of people have healed by simply taking it daily.

Hippocrates said, “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.” Whenever I hear this quote, I gawk and think that’s so deep, man. The latter half of the quote is what my recipe is all about. Let medicine be thy food. So deep!

I have found that my diet is no longer centered around food – because my food ingredients change day to day, year to year. My diet is centered around hydration and tonic herbs – the great tonic herbs like reishi mushroom, chaga mushroom, astragalus, goji berry, maca, and many more. Even when I fast and cleanse, it’s centered around tonic herbs and hydration.

I present to you the easiest, fastest, potent, most hydrating and mouthwatering, adaptable and adaptogenic Herbal Tonic Skyrocket Elixir Recipe. I make 3-4 of these per day to stay hydrated and strong!

Herbal Tonic Skyrocket Elixir

Herbal Tonic Skyrocket Elixir Recipe:

Blend in blender for 15 seconds:

3 cups spring water

1 1/2 cups spring water ice cubes

1 tablespoon tonic herb extracts

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon KAL stevia extract powder or sweetener of choice, to taste

Let foam settle (you can blend in the stevia last to reduce how much ‘foam head’ is created) and serve in glass – or a mason jar to take with you on the go. 

 

The 1 tablespoon tonic herb extracts part is up to you. What do you want to add in to your life today? You could start with medicinal mushroom extracts, or goji berry extract, or black maca extract, or everyone’s favorite, He Shou Wu.

I have created 7 products that I have found to be the most critical, most powerful, and most appropriate for near-daily use. Give them a try, and experience the deep restorative powers of high-end tonic herbs and superfood extracts. This is medicine that is always there for you, always nutritive, always mood-lifting, always deeply energizing, stress reducing and nourishing to your nervous system, endocrine system and organs.

If you have any questions about tonic herbs, please ask away in the comments section below. I’ll be right here to answer.

It’s time to show you my latest in superfood creations: My Off the Hook Superfood Ghee Ice Cream which features some ancient foods to help you succeed at your allergy free high nutrition living so that you can make your health and fitness goals come true!

You’ll notice in the title that I did not say ‘Dairy Free.’ Keep an open mind as I explain. I’m about to introduce to you  something that is neither vegan, nor raw. Okay, it’s an all out cooked animal product.

I know, I know… you’re thinking “Christian…my bro… I’m into adding in more raw plant foods into my life, not more cooked animal foods. You must be trippin.’ ”

IMG_0232

Let me explain. I’m into balance, not labeling myself (but I am into labels on food products and I am for labeling of GMOs!); I love adding in the very best from every tradition. I’m into the cleansing aspects of hardcore raw vegan approaches, but several years (yep, I was a raw vegan for that long) of avoiding animal products just starts to feel bad. The body aches for what it needs.

According to a several thousand year old vegetarian/mostly vegetarian tradition practiced by billions of people called Ayurveda, this cooked animal fat is considered life itself. Whoa! It’s called Ghee. And it’s what the Ayurvedic doctor ordered.

For all the people who aren’t ready to try ghee, I won’t be pushy. I’m going to give you strategic and tasty options to make this ice cream a vegan/dairy free one, but I also invite (gently persuade) you to try an amazing ingredient which is the only milk product I regularly ‘do’ at this time (or maybe will ever do because all other forms of dairy except this one give me a mucus reaction): Ghee.

Freshly made ghee in glass

Ghee is the traditional Ayurvedic clarified butter. It’s pure butter oil with nearly 100% of the casein, lactose, milk solids and water removed. It’s made from organic grass-fed cow butter. Butter is 80% oil, 20% milk. Ghee is 100% oil, 0% milk. It’s pure essential fats – like coconut oil or cacao butter, but it’s an animal product and is high in CLA (Conjugated linoleic acids), a category of fatty acids that has been shown to have anticancer properties, strengthen immune function, and help the human body healthfully burn fat and healthfully reduce body fat deposits.

And yet it’s not raw. Ghee is made by cooking butter just above 200*F to coax the milk solids to separate off, leaving the pure butter oil. This process gives ghee a most enjoyable butterscotch flavor (before artificial flavors, butterscotch flavor was literally made from scorching butter, or ‘butter-scorch’.)

So why is ghee so fabulously healthy even though it is cooked? Well it’s just like coconut oil, which is highly resistant to oxidation from heat. Perhaps you have heard that coconut oil is consider the healthiest oil with which to cook. Well, I put coconut oil in 2nd place. Ghee is the most healthful to cook with and has an even higher smoking temperature. It’s healthy saturated fat content protects it from oxidation during heat. But, like all oils, ghee should be kept in glass, away from plastic and away from direct sunlight and be used as fresh as possible for the most health benefits.

I recommend Ancient Organics Ghee. These guys rock, are local to me (as is the farm they get their butter from), and obey the Ayurvedic details when they make the ghee (like only making it during the full or waxing moons.)

 

My Off the Hook Superfood Ghee Ice Cream Recipe tastes like vanilla butterscotch carmel with a hint of foresty goodness from all the adrenal-restoring tonic herbs in it.

Feel free to double this recipe.

 

Blend in blender on medium-high for at least 1 minute until very warm (so that the fats emulsify):

2 1/2 tablespoon ghee (or warm coconut oil or melted cacao butter, but ghee will give it the best ice cream flavor and texture without the ice cream allergens)

1 1/2 tablespoon non-GMO lecithin powder

1/2 can (7 oz) BPA-free canned full-fat organic coconut milk (Native Forest Organic Classic Coconut Milk is great)

1 free-range organic egg yolk or additional 1 teaspoon non-GNO lecithin powder (if you choose egg yolk, you are deciding for yourself how to handle raw egg yolk so use your very best judgement)

 

Then add and blend on high for 20 seconds:

2 tablespoons non-GMO glycerin (this is really low glycemic amazing stuff!) or sweetener of choice (honey, etc.)

1 1/2 tablespoons spring water

1 teaspoon Maca Bliss

1 teaspoon Goji Joy

1 teaspoon LEVITY Red Asparagus Root Extract Powder

1/2 teaspoon Prepared He Shou Wu extract powder

1/2 teaspoon ground vanilla bean

1/4 teaspoon KAL stevia extract powder (use less if you are sensitive to stevia, use a touch more if you love stevia!)

1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, to taste

OPTIONAL: 1 teaspoon Longevity Spirulina (best tasting spirulina!)

Pour into an ice cream maker, or into a bowl to set for a few hours in the freezer. Scoop into a small serving bowl and drizzle with Edible Goddess Chocolate Gold (best chocolate sauce ever!) or my very low glycemic butterscotch-caramel sauce:

 

Butterscotch-Caramel Sauce Recipe

Stir until smooth in a small bowl using a small silicon spatula. Feel free to double or triple recipe:

1 tablespoon non-GMO glycerin (the zero-glycemic option) or any wholesome liquid sweetener of choice

1/2 teaspoon ghee or warm coconut oil

1/2 teaspoon LEVITY Red Asparagus Root Extract Powder

1 pinch KAL stevia extract powder, to taste
