Julie's day on a plate...
The very first thing I do in the morning is a warm water flush! drink 36 ounces body temperature warm water, I fill a jumbo glass 3/4 full with filtered or spring water and then top off with hot boiling water. The water must be very warm to match your internal body temperature. Drink it all at once without stopping. This tip is invaluable for ensuring elimination- the most important part of healthy diet and living. It also helps clear the body of toxins.
Tea ceremony aged puer & chanting - aged puer is fermented tea leaves from very old trees. It is said that the veins in the leaves carry the messages from the trees.
Divine Cacao Latte. This is a superfood hot morning drink that is filled with antioxidants and healthy fats and protein. I make mine with raw cashews, coco butter, raw cacao powder, vanilla bean, and three specialty dates. Combine them with hot water and blend in your Vita-mix. No need to strain it. This has become an offering to my soul. Raw cacao also has a bit of a kick to it. After experiencing this, you will never miss caffeine.
A frequent spread for my lunch is a beautiful board of various nut cheeses. Sprouted almond goat cheese, smoky cashew cheddar and aged cashew brie are filled with protein and give me an energy boost mid day. These cheeses are rich and cruelty free compassionate cheeses are divine. I love them so much that I created a cookbook called “This Cheese Is Nuts!” It has over 80 recipes including an allergy and nut free section.
I have five kids and my husband is an athlete so I have to feed a tribe! My plant based dairy and gluten free free lasagna is really hearty and filling! It’s made with almost raw tomato sauce, walnut pesto, almond ricotta, fresh spinache and potato noodles.
Raw superfood pies are desserts that feed your body temple. I created this Matcha pie for Tea Master WuDe, a buddhist monk and friend.
Before bed and at least 30 minutes after I have eaten dinner. I enjoy having two pieces of whole fruit along with some fresh mint tea. The fiber is essential for me to ensure healthy elimination in the morning.
