ReallyNourish Bites: ‘Cado & Pro-Ve-lone on a Sprouted Muffin 

This

is our answer to the the proverbial New Yorker’s breakfast. We have eschewed that #BaconEggandCheeseonaRoll habit in favor of this variation, which is nutrient rich, toxin free, and absolutely scrumptious!!!

‘Cado & Pro-Ve-lone on a Sprouted Muffin:

We used these organic ingredients: 

Great on Sandwiches,  Wraps and mixed with pasta!
Great on Sandwiches, Wraps and mixed with pasta!
  • 1/2 ripe Avocado
  • 1/4 cup of Red Onion, diced
  • 3 large pitted Green Olives, diced
  • Fresh Basil leaves
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Himalayan Sea Salt and Freshly Cracked Black Pepper to taste
  • Follow Your Heart Vegan Provolone-style slices
  • Food For Life Genesis 1:29 Sprouted English Muffins

Before we go on, let’s review that scripture, shall we?

29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant 🌽🌾 on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. 🍊🍎🍋They will be yours for food.

And just for good measure, let’s peep the next verse also:

30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.🌿🌱” And it was so.

I like to consider these verses while I’m shopping for food: 

🌾Seed-bearing plant = grains, including nuts and seeds = the English Muffins, the vegan cheese is made largely of Coconut oil

🍋Tree with fruit with seed in it = the avocado, olives & olive oil, pepper (yes, that’s a fruit!), apple cider vinegar

Three varieties grown from seedlings purchased at the Whitehall Ferry Terminal Farmer's Market in organic potting soil on my terrace in NYC.

🌿And to everything that has the breath of life in it – I give every green plant for food = the basil and the onions fit this description

💖Thank you God, You’re AWESOME!💖

The salt was the only thing that didn’t fit any of these, but the many positive references to salt in The Bible give me God’s go ahead on that – in moderation, of course.

So now this is what you do: 

  • Thaw and toast your muffin.
  • Scoop out the Avocado in to a bowl and add the diced onions, olives, olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper to taste.  Mash it all together using the back of a fork to break up the avocado well.
  • Cut your muffin in half and put one slice of the vegan “cheese” on.  A little drizzle of olive oil on top or a schmear of vegan butter underneath will help it melt under the top broiler the way the dairy stuff would.
  • Put the avocado mix on, sandwich it up and dig in!  Or wrap it up in foil and pop it into a sandwich bag to go!

And now you have a:

Organic In Season – Best Price, Best Quality

One of the main parts of our mission at The Really Nourish Movement is that organic, non-GMO food should be available, accessible and affordable for every mouth.  We have a long way to go to accomplish that goal, but in the meantime, we can debunk the “organic is more expensive myth.” 

We all know that most of what we eat is seasonal, but with the technological advances

spurred by the industrial revolution at the turn of the previous century, we have been able to access all kinds of food  all year round from all over the world.

That is a fact.  But the TRUTH is that the seasonal nature of cultivated food still exists.  Think about when something is on sale in the produce section.  If it’s on sale, the reason is usually because there is more of it available so they can charge less per unit or per pound, right?  But why does the quantity available change?

Answer: When food is in its God ordained season, it is abundant AND ALSO at its peak quality!

(Oh wow, that’s a WORD right there!!)

That’s true universally, even for chemically grown or greenhouse grown food.  As for their Really Nourish Whole Foods Local Organic Eggplantorganic counterparts, you may find that there are some times of year when certain items are

This local, organic Delicata Squash was only $.81! Judah was very pleased :)

simply not available at all, but when they are in season, they are inexpensive and so delicious!

Judah and I went shopping yesterday and we found local, organic, in-season squash for only $.99 a pound!  We also bought some local, organic eggplant, which is still yummy but coming close to the end of its season for $2.99 a pound.

We are going to half the squash, scoop out the seeds, make a delicious mix with diced eggplant, red onion, garlic, sprouted brown rice and fresh herbs from our terrace garden and that is dinner for less than $2 a serving!

Do you still think organic is expensive?  Post your comments below.

[Food Review & Recipe] Tolerant Organic Black Bean Rotini: A Cautious Return to Pasta 🍝🍅

Well my name is Shida Davis and I’m #StraightOutta Brooklyn

Every other dinner there was pasta cooking

But ever since I learned the deception of powder wheat

I dissed noodles the whole summer and learned new ways to eat

  
It was intrigue at first sight!

I was like “Word? That looks kinda great dude!” I flipped it around to look at the ingredients like “ok, black beans and what tho?” 

Ever notice that products that are actually good to nourish you are MUCH MORE transparent with information about the nutrition they provide than their …um… counterparts? And, after Buycott scanning it, I happily put it in the cart!! 

Here was the lunch flow today:

1 Medium Sized Local Japanese Purple Heirloom Tomato, rough chopped (these are in season in my region right now!)

1 Large Clove Organic Garlic, minced

1/2 Cup Organic Red Onion, minced

5 Pitted Kalamata Olives, rough chopped 

2-3 Large Green Olives, rough chopped

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Balsamic Vinegar

Salt and Pepper to taste

Mix all the chopped ingredients in a bowl with the oil and vinegar. Toss the pasta in this lovely flavorful mixture so the veggies warm up but are still raw and nutrient rich and the pasta is coated with flavor. 

Genesis 1:29 – Low glycemic, super nutritious lunchtime happiness! 

  

Caveat: STAY ON TOP OF THAT PASTA, it goes from al dente to mush in the blink of an eye! Keep tasting it so you can pull it off the fire and drain it as soon as the texture is perfect.

The Really Nourish Kitchen gives the Tolerant Organic Black Bean Rotini  a👍🏾👍🏾🙏🏿 rating!  We look forward to working with more of these pastas!

Wassup, Home Sprout? The Mung Bean Report

Here at Really Nourish, we are new to sprouting, and the experimentation stage has been a great learning experience.  Last week, we sprouted some brown rice and had that with carrots and roast chicken.  The kids ate that up!

Purchased in the bulk section of Whole Foods at $4.49/Lb. We sprouted 1 Cup, around 1/2 lb.
Purchased in the bulk section of Whole Foods at $4.49/Lb. We sprouted 1 Cup, around 1/2 lb.

Our latest experiment was mung beans and we are pleased to report success!  We got the dry beans in the bulk section of Whole Foods in Manhattan.

Equipment:

  • 1 quart canning jar, with the two-piece lid (Ball or Kerr’s makes nice ones) or a similar glass or ceramic jar
  • Cheese Cloth
  • A rubber band (if you don’t have the two-piece lid on your jar)

Steps:

  1. Soak mung beans in a 1:3 bean to water ratio overnight.  We measured 1 Cup of beans into the empty, dry jar and poured 3 Cups of cool tap water over it.
  2. Stretch a double layer of cheesecloth over the top and use only the ring part of the jar lid to hold it in place.  If you don’t have the two part lid, you can just secure it with a rubber band or some kitchen string tied tightly.
  3. In the morning, drain the water out, and set the jar upended in an empty bowl with a
    Bean sprouts are already visible on day 2.
    Bean sprouts are already visible on day 2.

    tilt so the beans can spread down one side of the jar and any excess water can drip out into the bowl.  Store away from excessive heat or direct sunlight.

  4. Later that evening, you might see some sprouts beginning to break out already!  Run some water through the jar to rinse the beans, drain, and re-establish the jar upended and tilted again in the bowl to sit overnight.
Success! Ready-to-Eat home sprouted organic Mung Beans.

They took about two (cool summer) days and they are good to use raw or slightly cooked when you see the sprouts are a bit longer than the original beans but you still see the green bran in tact and the bean still looks otherwise whole.  They are so cute, like little tadpoles!

Here’s the Nutrient Report from Superfoods for Superhealth:

Mung bean sprouts contain about 20% protein and are particularly high in Vitamin K, Vitamin C, Folate and Choline.  Mung beans are low in saturated fat and are a good source of dietary fiber.

Other bio-available nutrients include:

  • Thiamin
  • Amino Acids
  • Niacin
