The Avocado Queen Welcomes You

This blog is mostly about raw vegetarian/vegan recipes, many of which incorporate avocados. Since I became a raw/live food vegan several years ago, avocados became an important part of my diet. I'd even say that they are my favorite food, and as it turns out, they are also considered one of the world's healthiest foods. While my primary purpose here is to showcase avocados and how awesome they are, I will also share some recipes that are just plain good raw/live food as well as vegan food.

Most recipes are accompanied by a meditation or reflection - posting as "food for thought."

Wishing you peace, love, joy, and blessings wherever you are in your journey towards health...

Recipe for Satisfaction - Green Goddess Chips

To be satisfied is to have just enough - no more, no less.  To be satisfied is to please the taste buds, to quench the thirst.  To be satisfied is to consume a healthy balance of nutrition and calories and quell the desire for more.  Satisfaction is the state of non-greed, non-hoarding.  Satisfaction is that divine state of bliss where all is well: everyone has been fed; everyone has been nourished; everyone has been given exactly what was needed; everyone is grateful.

When the Rolling Stones sang "I cain't get no...satis-fact-ion", it is because they never had these absolutely divine green chips.  If you have given up potato chips, these will be a satisfying alternative!

Recipe for Satisfaction - Green Goddess Chips
Equipment: dehydrator with Teflex sheets, mixing bowl, whisk

  • 2 bunches of kale or collards (or a little of both): Tear into medium-size pieces; they will shrink in the dehydrator.
  • about 1/2 cup raw tahini
  • 1 clove of pressed garlic
  • a few tablespoons of nama shoyu or tamari
  • about a tablespoon of fresh orange juice
  • about a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
  • about a tablespoon of raw honey or other sweetner
  • about a tablespoon of nutritional yeast
  • dash of cayenne pepper

Adjust ingredients as needed to taste.  Balance to satisfy your own palate.

Combine ingredients in a large mixing bowl with a whisk.  Toss the kale/collards in this mixture.

Place on Teflex sheets and dehydrate at 100 degrees for about 8-12 hours (or until dry and crisp).

Acknowledge satisfaction and offer gratitude.
