Raw Hummus Recipe

If you love hummus but have a hard time digesting chickpeas, this chickpea-free hummus recipe is definitely worth trying. It calls for raw organic tahini (ground sesame seeds), but if you can only find tahini made with roasted sesame seeds, it's no problem to use that instead.

This raw hummus is rich in calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, manganese, and tryptophan. Because of its high tryptophan content, when eaten along with a healthy carbohydrate-rich food, it's an excellent evening food choice for promoting a good night's rest. Read more about Raw Hummus Recipe

If I could choose only one fruit to eat for the rest of my life, avocados would receive serious consideration. Not only are avocados creamy and delicious, they are abundant in healthy raw fat, fiber, vitamin K, folate, vitamin B6, and vitamin C.

It's near impossible to mess up a guacamole recipe, and freshly made guacamole is far healthier than commercially prepared varieties, which sometimes don't even contain real avocados.

Chickpeas are one of the least expensive, nutrient-rich foods that you can eat. Chickpeas are rich in a number of nutrients, most notably folate (folic acid), manganese, tryptophan, copper, iron, and of course, healthy protein.

Guacasalsa: A Super Tasty and Healthy Dip Recipe

If you want to ensure a program of nutritional excellence, it's essential that you include healthy fats -- like those found in avocados -- in your everyday diet. To the best of my knowledge, the low-fat era was essentially created and fueled by studies that did not differentiate between healthy fats and fats that have been damaged by excessive processing and heating.

Damaged fats like those found in hydrogenated oils, margarine, and fat-rich foods that have been heated at high temperatures are harmful to your health, and should be avoided as much as possible. Read more about Guacasalsa: A Super Tasty and Healthy Dip Recipe
