About Me

I started this blog to keep track of my kitchen creations. I love cooking and eating. In 2008 I was diagnosed with RA. Food started becoming a huge problem. I needed to find a better way to eat the flavors I love. All the recipes I create are driven by my desire to eat good food that won't create extra pain and inflammation in my internal ecosystem. While the recipes are wholesome, the language is not. I swear. I use the word 'fuck'. A lot! I make no apologies for that. It's just a fair warning. I'm raw and real. Happy cooking! Even happier eating! Cheers! Angie

Chocolate Pumpkin Protien

I love days when I experiment with shit and it actually comes out kick-ass delish! That's today!  All a big question mark.  I was prepared to dump this and start over but when I tasted it I was like, hell yeah!  This is a keeper for sure!

The pumpkin juice for this is from all those pie pimpkins I juiced last fall.  Remember those?  Juice them raw skin and all and then freeze the juice in ice cube trays.  I thought I used it all months ago.  It's amazing what you find when you reorg your freezer!

For the hemp powder and protien powder, follow the directions on the container.  Just because of my dairy issues, I use a plant-based protien (Vega Sport) but use whatever you like. 

•1c of unsweetened almond, hemp or any other nut milk OR 1 cup of water and •1/2 cup raw nuts of your choice
•1c of pumpkin juice (I use pie pumpkins)
•1 banana
•1T coconut oil
•Hemp powder (your fav kind)
•Protein powder (your fav kind)
•2T cacao nibs
•1t nutmeg
•1T cinnamon
•1T cayenne pepper
•2T of raw honey or 4 medjool dates

Throw it all in the blender on high for about 2 minutes.  If you have a smoothie setting, use that shit!
