Apple Spaghetti!

Apple Spaghetti! Apple-Sketti2

An apple a day…  You know the saying!  The other day I was using my new zucchini spiral machine when I got this idea to run an apple thru it.  If you don’t have a spiral machine you can use a simple apple peeler or cheese grater for a similar effect.

 

In the end I had these amazing apple noodles!

Apple-Sketti

This recipe is just too easy not to share!

Apple Spaghetti

2-3 Granny Smith Apples
2 Tbsp raisins – (easy to make yourself)
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1 squeeze lemon juice

Don’t worry about being to precise on measurements.  With only four ingredients, so make it taste the way you like.  Want some extra spice?  Add a little more cinnamon.

Spiral or shred the apples.  You can peel most of the skin to make it easier.  Leave a little for color.  Mix in raisins and lemon juice then sprinkle cinnamon over the top.

That’s it!  Enjoy!!

(Got grapes?  Put them out in the sun or in your dehydrator at 105 degrees until they turn into raisins!!  Yum yum!)

And just a reminder!!  Always shop Organic when possible.  Why?  Because you don’t want to eat pesticides!  Why?  Because it’s poison!

NO GMO!!!

Blueberry Ice Cream (3 Ingredients)

Summer is just around the corner.  Time to get out that old bikini and flip flops.  Here is a recipe that is both simple and delicious.  Don’t feel guilty about this raw treat because if contains only 3 simple ingredients:  Bananas, Blueberries, and a few Dates.  Eat yourself into shape this year!

4-5 frozen bananas
1/4 cup blueberries
3 dates

Directions:  Freeze bananas in peel.  Once frozen very carefully slice off the peel (be very very careful).  Cut into three of four chunks and place in a high powered blender.  Add blueberries and dates.  Blend using ice cream settings, or any low setting,  scraping down the sides of the blender when needed.  Once the mixture is  smooth dish and serve.

Serves 2-3 people.  Store uneaten ice-cream in freezer until later use.

Enjoy!!

 

Street Fruit

Today I went looking for fruit.  One of the best things about living in Southern California is the street fruit.  I’ve been watching a lot of Dual Survivor and it got me thinking.  I could use basic survival skills to save money on some of my favorite fruits!!!

Here were the rules we followed:

1. Stay out of the neighbors fenced in yards:  We only pick fruit from trees on public property or hanging over fences or walls.

2. If it looks like someone’s personal garden… leave it be as well:  If you stand and stare at it long enough someone might come out and offer you some.

3. Don’t eat things you can’t identify:  You don’t want to poison yourself…

It took us a few hours to collect two bags of fruit, saving us close to $25 at least!  Freshest thing you can eat!!!  8 7 6 5 4     10
