I love salads and I plan to go raw with my nutrition moving forward---simply put---LIVING FOODS!!

Living in St. Louis during the winter, I challenged myself to raw foods and it wasn't tough as it seemed, so living on the west coast, there's an abundance of food to choose from all year round that'll only expand my creativity!

Annette Larkins, a 71 Year Old I've followed online in Miami, FL is a black female who looks only 40...if that (YouTube her) motivated me to go raw today; and the God [within] me is up to the challenge!

After trying this firrrrrre salad recipe, you might be up to it as well---WooOoO!!

KL's GROUND BEEF-LESS BURGER ON TOASTED RYE

I made this delicious-tasting meat-less from ground Crimini Mushroom and slow cooked Chickpeas (Garbanzos) burger last night that was thee BOOOOOMB!!

The entire process takes a while because I make everything from scratch... but the actual burger-making process is just shy of the cooking time it takes to make a "hamburger."

Who says folks that don't eat meat can't eat GOOD FOOD..?! Point them out & watch me clown!!

Gotta get to work---STAY TUNED for the recipe---WoOoO!!

P.S.

I've made tacos using a similar technique too!

KL's BANANA HONEYDEW MELON SMOOTHIE

I made this smoothie so FAST that I'm sure that it'll take more time to write & publish this blog post than it did to make this smoothie!!

I made a quick list of the ingredients I chose as I prepared it then snapped a picture with the finished product... and the rest is history!

If you don't have a NINJA BLENDER feel free to use any blender and you will still be just as successful---and it'll still be just as delicious!!

***HINT: when you're done, you can freeze for an hour or so then blend again for a ice-creamier taste!!***

I didn't have time for that so----VROOOOM!!

I'm gone. Enjoy =D

KL's GARDEN-GROWN DEEP-FRIED OKRA

Shout out to my daddy for having roots in the south and my mama for having such a wonderful son like ME---WoOoO!!

So tonight I deep-fried a bunch of sliced garden-grown organic okra in 100% Grape Seed Oil... and it was delicious!!

The "batter" was simply Whole Spelt Flour and a few seasonings mix of Onion Powder, Cayenne Pepper, and Sea Salt.

PREP: 5 MIN
COOK: 3 MIN

SERVES: 2

INGREDIENTS:
Whole Okra, 10
Cayenne Pepper
Sea Salt
Whole Spelt Flour
Onion Powder
100% Grape Seed Oil

PREP:
Batter---Mix 1/2 cup Spelt Flour with 1 tablespoon Onion Powder, 1 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper, and 1 teaspoon Sea Salt.
Rinse okra well and slice into bite-size pieces.
Heat Grape Seed oil in fryer on medium-high heat.
Add batter to a re-sealable bag and add cut okra then close. Shake well until okra is well battered then remove and add to hot oil.

COOK:
Cook the okra 3 minutes or until all okra floats at the top of the cooking oil---since we're using Whole Spelt Flour in this recipe, the batter should be just slightly darker than golden brown when ready!

Remove from oil and place on a napkin to drain excess oil from cooked okra and dash with Sea Salt (optional).

ENJOY!!!
