Today's Nutrition / Pate Recipe

i had to share what my new bag i bought at whole foods had on it- i love it!!

The 7-Day Detox is going strong- some are on day 3 and some are on day 4. congratulations everyone!!!
my nourishment today:
water, lemon j, cayenne / probiotic
7:00 small amount of green juice while working with clients at studio
yoga practice
10:00am green juice plus supplements
drank rest of green juice till 1:00ish while working with clients
This was our juice for the day. i use the juice as a base for the kid's smoothies.

2:30 large sprout salad with fermented veggies, sea veggies and avocado. ate this with lydia's organic crackers and drizzle of tahini. YUMMY!! i've been loving this meal lately. very satisfying and makes me feel good.

These are the shakers of sea veggies that are soooo easy to shake on all your food:

drinking a kombucha tea now.

some of my detoxers were asking for other food options. not everyone has tried a Pate before. here is a recipe for a pate that is simple and delicious.
Not Tuna Pate
6 servings
1 ½ cups almonds, soaked for 24 hours, rinsed and drained
1 cup sunflower seeds, soaked for 4-6 hours, rinsed and drained
½ cup purified water, as needed
½ cup minced celery
½ cup minced red onion
½ cup minced parsley
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tbsp kelp powder
1 ½ tsp fresh dill weed or 1 tsp dried
½ tsp salt

Process the almonds and sunflower seeds in a food processor fitted with the S blade.
Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and stir in the remaining ingredients.
Stored in airtight container in the refrigerator, not tuna salad will keep for up to 1 week.

pates can be used in many ways:
wrapped up in a nori roll, collard or ezekiel bread wrap
make a sandwich with ezekiel bread, pate, sprouts and veggies
eat it alone or with a salad or soup
use it as a dip for your veggies during the day

my favorite way to eat a pate is to make a nori wrap.

take a piece of nori and place the pate on half of it. add sprouts, veggies, avocado etc and roll it up just like sushi. cut it in pieces, eat with chop sticks and dip it into my tahini miso dressing. the kids love it too.

here are my boys!!
