Rose Petal Love Potion

Sistahintheraw’s Rose Petal Love Potion

Sistahintheraw’s Rose Petal Love Potion

Become love-struck with yourself, find your amour and start each day with heartfelt self-love that will last well into the following days…

I love to use rose petals, rose water and rose essential oil for special cessions, because they are quite expensive and probably not cost-effective for everyday use.

I created this Rose Petal Love Potion so that you can celebrate your wonderful self and share with the other super wonderful people in your life. It’s a fruity botanical blend of flowers and lychee, that’s gorgeously refreshing.

You will need to get:
2 lychee fruit, peeled, de-seeded and sliced
1 drop DoTERRA Bergamot Essential Oil
1/4 cup of dried or fresh rose petals, washed
Filtered water

Then do this:

Fill a glass jug with all the ingredients and stir together. Leave to infuse in the fridge for at least a couple of hours, but preferably overnight. The rose petal may add to the colour of the water, depending on how long you leave the mixture to infuse.

You can serve it straight from the jug or you can strain it into glasses, adding in the petals and pieces of fruit at your discretion.

Enjoy🌹

Sistahintheraw’s Super Otaheite Bites

Otaheite Snack.jpg

Inspired by my recent trips to Jamaica and Zambia, I just fell in love with Otaheite apples. They are also known as Jamaican apples, Coco plum, Rose apple, or for some, Ethiopia apple in some regions of Jamaica.

2 cups sunflower seeds
2 tbsp dried grated coconut
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp baobab fruit powder
1 tbsp ground flax/linseed
i tbsp goji berries
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp otaheite jam

To make otaheite jam:
Wash, core and cut 2 otaheite apples into chunks, blend with 4 dates until smooth. You may also add spices to this mixture.

To make otaheite snacks:
Pulse the seeds in a food processor until broken down to desired consistency, but not too fine. Add in other ingredients and process until well combined and mixture is coming together like dough. If the mixture is too wet add 1 tbsp coconut flour or other nut or seed flower. If too dry add 1 tbsp more jam, or a little water.

Spoon mixture one spoonful at a time and roll into balls. Place in fridge to set, then place in an airtight container and store in the fridge. Serve as a snack or dessert with fresh sliced star apple fruit or kiwi fruit.
 
Options:
You can use pears or apples if you can't get hold of otaheite apples

Escovitch Vegetables

©ESCOVITCH VEGETABLES.jpg

'Escovitch' is a term used in Jamaica to describe a tart, spicy and slightly sweet sauce usually accompanying a fish dish. The combination of spices and vinegar make for a delightful flavour and it's really easy to make. Basically all you need to do is julienne your selection of vegetables (red and yellow bell peppers, white onion and carrots) and instead of cooking with heat, allow the veggies to marinade in the spices and vinegar for a hour.

Scotch bonnet pepper is used in all sorts of Caribbean cuisine, it's a small but very hot chilli, similar to the habañero. Scotch bonnet, also known as bonney peppers, or Caribbean red peppers, is a variety of chili pepper named for its resemblance to a tam o' shanter hat. Whatever you do, make sure that you wash you hands and utensils thoroughly after handling cut Scotch bonnets!

You can have this dish as along side raw burgers, as raw pizza topping and with salads and raw soups. It's a great warming winter dish too!

You can also peel carrots into ribbons by using a vegetable peeler.

Mango Coconut (Birthday) Smoothie

I feel so fortunate to have been born on 24th July, its nearly always sunny and it's also in the holiday season. I'm definitely a committed sunshine person, with a Leo lioness heart. My love of summer tropical fruit gave creation to this special, delicious summer smoothie to celebrate my birthday... You can also add freshly made coconut water, almond milk or sunflower seed milk to this recipe if you desire more fluidity.

I'm inviting you to share my birthday with me on Monday. Lets have some healthy smoothie fun together, why not create your own special smoothie and share it with me? I'd love to hear about your recipe...

You can message your recipe creation to me below in the comments section, on Facebook, or tag me on Twitter (@sistahintheraw). I'll choose three smoothie recipes from the ones posted to receive a surprise FREE gift from me.

Have a fab weekend.
One Love birthday vibes from

SISTAHINTHERAW RAW SOUL FOOD RECIPES FOR A VIBRANT NEW YOU!

Easy shredded Salad

A simple shredded vegetable salad is energising, hydrating and micro nutrient dense!

A hand grater and some raw veggies (carrots, beets, courgettes/zucchini), with a great raw salad dressing is all you need to provide you with bags of energy (high vibration and life force). You can then add in some crunchy stuff and you're away with a healthy, colourful, flavourful and multi-textured treat.

Grated organic vegetables are super dense and indifferent combinations, they are a most satisfying main meal for the day. Have a LARGE salad in the middle of the day if possible (everyday, unless you're fasting), and it's best practice to vary the ingredients you use each day for nutrient variety. 

Prepare your veggies beforehand to take with you to work and keep refrigerated or in a cool bag until meal time. Include a healthy salad as part of your daily self-care routine.

You will need:
2 organic carrots, washed
1 organic courgette/zucchini, washed
1 organic raw beet, peeled
Handful of organic nuts (almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts etc.)
Handful organic sunflower seeds
1 organic lime
1 tbsp Cold pressed Avocado oil (or oil of your choice)
Pinch of salt (or to taste)

Grate the veggies and place in a bowl, chop the nuts and sprinkle over veggies. Grate zest of half the lime and sprinkle onto salad. Drizzle avocado oil and juice from half the lime over the salad, sprinkle with salt and add sunflower seeds. It's ready.

Quick and simple...enjoy!

Optional veggies include: squash, red or white cabbage, parsnip, onion, daikon, green beans, sweet potato, radishes...

One Love
