1 cup almonds
1/2 cup cashews
1/8 tsp Pink Himalayan Salt
1/2 Tbsp Carob
4 Tbsp Cacao
3 Tbsp Agave, or 3-4 dates, or raw honey
2-3 Tbsp Cacao nibs, to cover brownies
Blend all ingredients in food processor or Vita Mix until dough forms, Food Processor is easier because of the space. Use a spatula to wipe sides of container frequently.
Form into brownies on a plate sprinkle and press cacao nibs onto the top of the brownies, and dehydrate 104 degrees for 1-2 hours to dry out just a tad or enjoy as is.
You can make a Cacao or Carob frosting or chocolate sauce to top your brownies or add walnuts, you can also add fresh mint to your brownies and make mint chocolate chip brownies.

I have posted this link to share what I'm learning about AGAVE, the beloved sweetner. I just bought my last bottle. I have noticed the more you use it the more you want it. We used to make our smoothies with no sweetener at all, now that is all my husband and children use. I have at least gotten them to cut back. I prefer more banana, sweeter fruit or dates.
http://renegadehealth.com/blog Look down the page for episode #374 AGAVE RE-VISITED
* does not have a high glycemic index, but that does not make it automatically healthy
* high in fructose, does not cause blood sugar spike, but has no fiber
* fructose is the natural sugar found in fruit, but fruit has fiber which helps our bodies to absorb, digest and properly utilize the fructose
* Negative affects of Agave - causes insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, uric acid build up in your liver (fatty liver)
Better sweeteners to use:
Apples, bananas, peaches, berries, grapes with seeds, pineapples, dates, raisins, stevia (green leaf powder)
No-Bonez Notes of the Day!!
Slow gradual changes will help you to appreciate the journey even more, when we know better, we can then do better!
Knowledge is power and when you have been given the knowledge, it is up to you to use it.
Listen to your bodies love language, what are you addicted to?

I CAN NOT CALL MYSELF 100% RAW VEGAN BECAUSE I WILL USE HONEY, IT IS IN THE BIBLE AND IN ITS RAW UNPROCESSED STATE I DON'T MIND IT, HOWEVER I RARELY USE IT, HARDLY BUY IT AND DON'T LIKE THE TASTE MUCH AND IT CAUSES MY TEETH TO BE MORE SENSITIVE, YOU GET THE IDEA.
I ALSO EAT ORGANIC OLIVES THAT ARE NOT RAW, HOWEVER THEY ARE TOO EXPENSIVE AND YOU DON'T GET MUCH, AND TOO SALTY. I ALSO USE BRAGGS LIQUID AMINOS, RARELY, ONLY IF A RECIPE CALLS FOR IT, MY SON LOVES IT ON NUT MEATS AND IN SOUPS. I ALSO USE AGAVE, THAT SAYS RAW AND ORGANIC BUT IT IS NOT, ONLY THE CLEAR AGAVE THAT CAN NOT BE PURCHASED FROM REGULAR HEALTH FOOD STORES IS REALLY RAW UNPROCESSED AGAVE.
CHECK OUT MY STORE NATURAL ZING AND MY WWW.RAWTEACHER.COM/CHELLY SITE FOR GREAT PRICES ON RAW OLIVES, AGAVE, NUTS, AND OTHER RAW GOODIES!!!
I HAVE MENTIONED ALL THIS TO SAY........
I LOVE YOU IF YOU EAT MEAT AND EVEN IF YOU DONT! I FEEL BETTER NOT EATING MEAT, DAIRY, FISH, COOKED & PROCESSED FOODS, SUGAR AND NON ORGANIC PRODUCE. I FEEL BETTER LEADING BY EXAMPLE AND REALLY TRULY PRACTICING WHAT I PREACH/TEACH!!
I DON'T CHEAT, MY STOVE HOLDS BOWLS FILLED WITH FRUIT AND RECIPE BOOKS, MY MICROWAVE HOLDS DISHES AND IS A SPROUTER, MY OVEN HOLDS MORE DISHES. I WOULD LOVE FOR EVERYONE TO EXPERIENCE THE RAW DIET AND GREAT HEALTH.
I HAVE WITNESSED RECOVERY FROM SICKNESS AND DISEASE WITHIN MY OWN FAMILY AND TREMENDOUS WEIGHT LOSS AND RENEWED ENERGY. I WANT THIS FOR EVERYONE!!!
IT IS MY PRAYER THAT IF YOU NEED HELP OR GUIDANCE YOU WILL CALL ON ME. INTEGRITY IS IMPORTANT TO ME, I SAY WHAT I MEAN AND MEAN WHAT I SAY.
I ENJOY THE RAW DIET BECAUSE I FEEL GOOD, HEALTHY, STRONG, ENERGIZED, I'M FREE!!
FREE FROM THE QUILT OF EATING FOOD THAT MAKES ME FEEL HEAVY, LETHARGIC, MOODY, DEPRESSED, SICK, FULL, GUILTY.
MY CHILDREN ARE HEALTHY THEY LOVE GREEN DRINKS, ALL VEGETABLES AND FRUITS. MY HUSBAND JUST LOST ANOTHER 15 LBS IN ONE WEEK, HE NOW RUNS (WE LAUGH AND CALL IT A SLOW TROT) TO AND FROM WORK, IT'S ABOUT 7 TO 8 MANHATTAN BLOCKS. WE HAD A GOOD LAUGH THE OTHER NIGHT!! A LADY IN HIGH HEELS JUST WALKS PAST HIM WHILE HE IS RUN/TROTTING TO WORK. HE WEIGHS 430 LBS SO HE IS DOING AWESOME. MOVE YOUR BODY, EAT HEALTHY BUT MOVE YOUR BODY, 30 MINUTES PER DAY.

Here are just a few thoughts from the class:
A BIG THANK YOU!!! That was a tremendous class, again you exceeded my expectations! I made the corn salad for dinner that night for friends. It was so good! Wish Level II was this weekend. It was great fun spending the day with you and all the delightful women in our class, not to mention all that we learned. M
- the more you learn the more you know we BETTER return to God's way of eating. Thought of you yesterday afternoon as I made the Collard wraps & guacamole - it was good but not as good as yours. And I must commend you again on the ease of your preparations, etc cause girl, my kitchen did NOT look like yours did - ha - but don't have a food processor used a chopper that kinda minced the carrot & zucchini - but again it was good - yesterday was an almost total raw day - 97%. Thank YOU for the presentation & the wisdom imparted - truly you DO show people raw is easy & delicious - be well - be greatly blessed - M
