Delicious Sprouted Almond Hummus Recipe 

2 cups sprouted organic almonds 

(To sprout, soak in a clean jar with lid, two times the water to almonds overnight. Or for two days, rinsing and refilling the jar.) 

1/4-1/2 c. Olive oil or Tahini

4 Tbs lemon juice

Pulse all ingredients with your favorite flavors like olives (here), garlic, pesto or onion. My Vita Mix became a bit cranky, so a food processor would work better. 

Optional: remove skins of almonds before processing.

How to make your own probiotics: This food contributes many varieties of flora to your gut! (Recipe taken from The Body Ecology program)

From three heads of cabbage,  reserve about 8 outer leaves. Chop up the three heads of cabbage (any color)

Lay down a 1 inch layer in a crock (I use my crock pot without the heating element). Beat each layer until juicy, and add another inch, and repeat until add cabbage is shredded and beat. (I use my Vita Mix implement, pictured)

Add a tablespoon of salt sprinkled evenly over the top, juice 6 fresh lemons and strain seeds out, and drizzle over the piled up layers.

Lay the reserved leaves over the top of the piles and press down firmly. Cover with the bottom of a deep plate to make a lid,  cover plate with a clean towel, and put a heavy object on the lid (I use a quart jar of water).

Let ferment for 3-5 days at 70-72 degrees. Scrape off the moldy top layer (really, it is OK!) and transfer the bright colored, juicy, cultured vegetables into glass jars, and store in the fridge. The vegetables will continue to grow probiotics at a slower rate in the fridge. Eat within 30 days. Try to eat at least 1/4 to 1/2 cup daily, for better belly health!

Sorry, I have yet to come up with healthy sugar free marshmallows!
