STRESS-ADAPT PALEO GRANOLA

Author: Lily Mazzarella

Typical granolas are part of the high-glycemic faux “health food” hoax perpetrated on health conscious folks in this county (many yogurts fit this bill, too). But. The good news is, you can make your own low-fuss, low-glycemic version AND add adaptogenic support to the mix.

If you don’t know adaptogens yet, you’ll want to: adaptogens are safe, tonic herbs that support whole body neuro- endocrine balance, resulting in benefits such as stable energy, good sleep, and more robust libido.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven on “warm” setting.
  2. In a food processor, roughly chop the nuts (you can also use sliced almonds).
  3. Combine shredded coconut, chopped nuts, seeds, Stress-Adapt powder and optional ingredients (if using).
  4. Gently heat the coconut oil, turn off the heat, and whisk in the raw honey and vanilla. While the liquid is warm and runny, pour over nut/seed/coconut combination and whisk/toss thoroughly (this can take a little while!).
  5. Spread out over 1-2 baking sheets and “dry” in the oven for 20-30 minutes. Note: it will smell divine while it's in the oven.
  6. Allow to cool, add optional cacao nibs and dried fruit, if using, and store in an airtight jar in a cool, dry place. *Tip: Double the nut/seed portion of this recipe and set aside for use in the Savory Herb Snack Mix

THE CHERRY CONNECTOR

Author: Lily Mazzarella

I formulated this luscious smoothie for a specific reason: I’ve been healing from a chronic arm/shoulder injury for several years and am finally building back strength (woo hoo!) and becoming more active in physical therapy. Aware that an injury could set me back, I’m careful to support my tissues with the nutrients they need to recover. Research has shown that cherries reduce post-exercise fatigue, and that collagen prevents sports injury—a winning combination. Flavonoids from cherries support cross-linking of collagen fibers (what all our connective tissue is made of!). Protein, plant-based omega 3’s, and other healthy fats help reduce post-workout inflammation and restore depleted energy reserves.

Strawberry-Goji Happiness Smoothie

Strawberry-Goji Happiness Smoothie
This light, creamy, not-overly-sweet treat features vitamin C-rich springtime strawberries and goji berries, a.k.a. Happiness Berry or Wolfberry. Goji is a traditional Chinese medicine used for liver and kidney deficiency patterns, for “brightening” the eyes (no wonder, as it is chock-full of carotenes and anti-inflammatory pigments), and promoting happiness and longevity. In a 2-week clinical trial, daily consumption of goji berries was found to increase energy and well-being (“happiness”) and improve digestion in the lucky participants.

Instructions
  1. Combine dry and wet ingredients separately, and then add wet to dry, and stir until mixed. Allow to stand for 15 + minutes on the counter (the vinegar or lemon juice needs to react with the baking soda)
  2. Heat a heavy frying pan, griddle, or cast iron pan on the stove and melt 1 tbsp of coconut oil. Using a 1/4 c measure, spoon batter onto the hot surface. Work in batches until they are done—makes 5 pancakes.
  3. I also make these in the oven as little flatbreads—they’re just as delicious and you don’t have to worry about burning them! For this method, preheat the oven to 4250 F, and grease a baking pan with coconut oil. Cook for 15 minutes or until done.
