Today I got to preview Bliss Balls For Beginners!  Luschka was so kind to share her ebook with me.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Luschka lives in England with her husband and two daughters.  She has been on a real food journey since her first child was born, and loves trying new recipes and flavours.  She recently started a food blog, Keeperofthekitchen.com, where she shares the recipes she uses to fill her kids lunch boxes – normally healthy, always tasty, good-for-you snacks.

ABOUT Bliss Balls For Beginners

21 fabulous recipes that can be made into gifts, lunch box snacks or treats for guests.  They are dairy-free, gluten-free, mostly sugar-free and are easy for adults and children to make using common, healthy, lovely ingredients.

WHAT I MADE

I started with the Basic Bliss Ball recipe but added some extra dried fruits to it.  I’m happy to say  that these are DE-LISH!

I don’t want to spoil it for you and give away the recipe ~ that is a surprise for you to find out how easy these really are once you get the ebook.  But I do want to talk a little about some of the ingredients and their health benefits.

MEDJOOL DATES

Medjool Dates contain vitamins A, B6, Niacin, Folate, Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, Phosphorus, a high amount of Potassium, Zinc, Copper, Manganese and Sodium.  They are rich in dietary fiber and antioxidants.

They are good for the following:

  • Constipation
  • Allergies
  • Intestinal Disorders
  • Bone Health & Strength
  • Weight Gain
  • Energy BOoster
  • Nervous System Health
  • Healthy Heart
  • Sexual Wellness
  • Night Blindness
  • Inoxication
  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal Cancer

RAISINS

One cup packed full of raisins will contain vitamins C, B6, Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium and Protein.

They are good for the following:

  • Constipation
  • Weight Gain
  • Cancer Prevention
  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Anemia
  • Sexual Dysfunction
  • Acidosis
  • Bone Health
  • Eye Care
  • Dental Care

Other benefits of raisins include: promoting excretion of bile from the body, stimulates the burning of cholesterol, and the fiber content helps to sweep out toxins and harmful materials from the digestive tract.

A few of the lesser known ingredients that Luschka uses in her recipes are:

  • Cacao – this is different from cocoa.  Cacao is more bitter and considered to have a higher nutritional value.
  • Goji Berries – this is a Chinese berry full of antioxidants ad used for a variety of health benefits.
  • Maca Powder – I had no idea what this was before I read Bliss Balls for Beginners.  Apparently it’s a Peruvian root vegetable that contains vitamins B1, B2, C, E and a range of minerals that aid endurance and enhance energy, stamina, athletic performance, memory and fertility.

I seriously cannot wait to try all the other 20 recipes!  The one we made was so tasty, we finished them all off in just two days.

Lamb's Quarters Foraging for Greens SoupAs foodies, many of us are looking for a meal satisfying in flavor and nutrition, but most of us want more than that: an entire lifestyle with the flavor, nutrition, and satisfaction that the food we are eating is fantastic. In our household, we began our food foraging as a way to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of the typical food-sourcing experience. Instead of navigating parking lots and cereal aisles, we hiked and climbed rocks. We were stung by nettle and scratched by wild blackberry vines in the process but it was all good. Fresh air, exercise, and exquisite food have a way of making up for bruises, scratches, and welts. Admittedly until the spring of 2012, our foraging was limited to batches of wild berry jam and springtime collections of chamomile and nettle for tea. In April of 2012, I set out to collect two bags of nettle from a field I had my eye on. As I looked more closely at the field, gloves, clippers, and bags in hand, I discovered that for every nettle plant, there were about one hundred lamb’s quarters plants in the same field. I looked at my bags and at the lamb’s quarters. I wondered, “Shouldn’t I pick some of this other green? What would I do with a mountain of lamb’s quarters?” I filled by bags with lamb’s quarters and threw in some nettle stems for good measure. I took the greens home intent on trying a greens soup. Soup is a great way to consume a pile of greens. At home, I described the field full of lamb’s quarters to my mom as we worked together on the soup — sautéed onion and garlic, spices, boiled and drained lamb’s quarters in a base of broth, all pureed into a dense pot of greenness. We were taken a back by just how green the soup was, but we ladled it out and sat down together to try it, albeit a bit hesitantly. I ate four bowls of greens soup that night. We laughed as I finished the fourth: Clearly my body needed this extra-green bowl of foraged goodness. We made plans to harvest more lamb’s quarters from that field and spent Mother’s Day of 2012 doing just that. We loaded the back of my station wagon with lamb’s quarters and processed it for the freezer. We had greens soup for months. This is one of our recipes from the 2012 season, using some foraged greens and some cabbage from our garden, but any greens that you like will do.

Greens Soup Ingredients

Greens Soup from Foraged Greens

  • 1/2 gallon green cabbage leaves, cleaned and torn or chopped
  • 1/2 gallon lambs quarter leaves, torn from the stems and cleaned
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 7 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Coconut oil or oil of your choice
  • 8 cups bone broth (or vegetable broth)
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour or thickening of your choice (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 heaping tablespoon dried tarragon

Greens Soup Steps

  1. In a large soup pot sauté the onion, garlic and pepper flakes in oil until the onion begins to brown.
  2. Add the tarragon and sauté for a couple more minutes. The oil wakes up the flavor of the tarragon.
  3. Pour in the bone broth and bring to a simmer.
  4. Add the cabbage greens, put on a lid, and simmer for 30 minutes.
  5. In the meantime, bring a pot of water to boil, add the lambs quarters, and boil for about five minutes. Discard the boiling water.
  6. Once the cabbage is cooked, add the boiled lambs quarters, stir, and allow the mixed greens to simmer for a couple of minutes.
  7. Carefully pull the greens from the broth and puree in a food processor.
  8. Return the pureed greens to the soup pot and stir to blend. The soup will already be thick. If you would like it thicker, then blend the tapioca flour with a cup of water and slowly add to the soup, stirring the whole time. The soup will be thickened in about 2 minutes.
  9. Check for salt and pepper and make adjustments.

After falling in love with this soup completely in 2012, we found ourselves disappointed that the drier season here in 2013 would affect the lamb’s quarters crop. What would we do without our lamb’s quarters soup? One mid-winter morning as my mom and I drove down the same road we’ve traveled on for 30 years, she said, “Honey! Stop the car!” At the nearest turnout we walked back to examine a field of green that caught my mom’s eye. It was stinging nettle, a green that makes an exceptionally silky soup. We filled our freezer with 30 quarts of blanched nettle leaf within weeks of our discovery. We had so much nettle that our small small lamb’s quarters harvest later in the spring was of no consequence. The freezer was stocked and greens soup makes regular appearances on our menu. As you travel in your local area, take a second look at fields of green. Your next dinner may be looking back at you.

“Prepping” is a big word that can sometimes overwhelm people. It’s like the elephant in the room that you don’t want to acknowledge because you never know what he might make you do.

ultimatesurvivalbundle-728-x-90 

Well, prepping does not have to be scary or overwhelming! With the right approach, it’s simple and practical — but especially, it’s extremely important for a family’s safety and security.

It’s about simple things like…

…making a plan that you and your family will meet at a certain place if a disaster drives you out of your home.

family-preparedness-handbook-softcover …tucking away some barter items (like sugar or coffee) that will be valuable later on when they’re scarce.
real-food-storage-3d …learning how to preserve food through dehydrating because you don’t have extensive storage.dehydrating-ebook-faceright …knowing how to start a fire to keep your family warmart-of-fire…making sure you have a 3-day supply of necessities in a bug-out bag for each member of the family.
