Biwa Time of the Year – Delicious Vegan Recipes

Oh yes, it’s that time of the year again. Our Biwa tree has delicious fruit and I’m loving it.

To be honest, I never even heard of Biwa until we moved to Japan. And I never really tried until we moved to new house and there was a Biwa tree right there in our new garden.

I didn’t really know what to do with the fruits so I started to experiment with it and found out that if I pick it before it’s too ripe, it had nice sourish taste, which I love in my salads.

And so my Biwa recipes came to life

Mixed Green Salad with Biwa

Ingredients

1/4 of iceberg lettuce

6 cherry tomatoes, quartered

1/8 of red onion, sliced

1/2 cucumber, sliced

1/4 of bell pepper, cut

2 biwa, squeezed over a bowl so juice and flash separates

Bunch of cilantro

Dressing

The juice from the Biwa fruit

1 tsp of olive oil

1 tsp of white balsamic vinegar

1 drop of Jade Lemon Essential oil

Punch of Himalaya pink salt

Method

Mix all the ingredient for the dressing and let sit together so the flavors combine.

Meantime, prepare all you vegetables and fruit together in a bowl. Pour the dressing over it, taste it and then use some salt.

Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and enjoy your healthy and delicious meal!

Quinoa Biwa Herb Salad

Ingredients

1 cup cooked quinoa

Bunch of Baby leaf salad mix

Bunch of coriander

3 leafs of fresh sage

1 cucumber

2 radishes

Little bit of fresh curry leaf

Salt

Olive oil

Lemon Essential oil

Three slices of bell pepper

Method

Wash your quinoa really well to avoid it turning bitter. Boil with cup of water, salt and the curry leaf. It will give it nice smell and flavor. Let it cool down

In the meantime, chop the baby leaf and herbs and cut your cucumber and radishes into slices. Squeeze the Biwa in your fingers so it opens and remove the pits, squeezing the juice and flesh into the salad bowl. Toss it together with the rest of the ingredients. Mix spoon of olive oil with two drops of Lemon EO and pinch of salt and toss it together with the salad. Serve with some bell peppers

My Healthy Friday Morning

My biggest food struggle is breakfast. I’m Czech, I grew up on bread rolls and ham for breakfast most of my life. I love bread rolls but that’s where part of my belly fat comes from 😹🤪.

Recently I’m really trying to be healthier, eat healthier. Healthy, filling breakfast is a part of it but I mostly end up with a bowl of rice topped with poached egg, steamed Okra and Kimchi. I used to have tofu with it, but trying to stay away from soy products for now due to my thyroid issues.

Yesterday, one of my friends asked about our favorite healthy snack/dessert and I remembered my Chia Pudding Recipe! Oh I miss it so much! It’s not only great as healthy dessert, it makes for great breakfast too!

Here is a link to my YouTube Video how I made this Chia Pudding It’s really delicious

Chia Seeds need time to soak so best of you can pre soak them the night before. If not, let’s hope you have at least an hour in the morning. Luckily I do, I actually prefer to wait an hour with my food after I take my morning capsule with Endoflex Vitality, so I started so soak my Chia seeds.

What you need

4 tbs of Organic Chia Seeds,

100 ml of Almond or Coconut milk

30 ml of NingXia Red

1 tbs of Pumpkin Seeds

1 tbs of Sunflower Seeds

1 banana

2 drops of Citrus Fresh

First of all, you soak your Chia Seeds with the liquids and let it sit for a while. Best is over night but an hour gives you good texture too.

Right before serving, you add your pumpkin and sun flower seeds or any seeds/nuts of your liking, half of the banana and 2 drops of Citrus Fresh Essential Oil for extra flavor and mix well. Serve with the rest of the banana on top.

You can actually make this with any fruits of your liking, I made it with Pineapple before and it was so delicious!

Chia Seeds are very good for you. They are great source of Omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants and provide us with fiber, iron and calcium. They help to raise our “good” cholesterol and protect our heart.

A one-ounce (28 grams) serving of chia seeds contains (1):

  • Fiber: 11 grams.
  • Protein: 4 grams.
  • Fat: 9 grams (5 of which are omega-3s).
  • Calcium: 18% of the RDI.
  • Manganese: 30% of the RDI.
  • Magnesium: 30% of the RDI.
  • Phosphorus: 27% of the RDI.
  • They also contain a decent amount of zinc, vitamin B3 (niacin), potassium, vitamin B1 (thiamine) and vitamin B2.

This small amount supplies only 137 calories and one gram of digestible carbohydrate.

Why add 30 ml of NingXia Red? NingXia Red is my favorite part of my morning routine. It is so insanely good for our bodies! I keep telling everyone to drink it religiously. Those who listen, they flourish and see the amazing benefits.

But besides all these benefits, it’s also really delicious, full of berry flavor and that is something I really want from my food. Great flavors.

And why Citrus Fresh? You know I love Young Living Essential oils and I am very loyal to them. Because to be honest, if I’m adding oils to my food, I want to know where they are coming from and that they are pure. And only Young Living can guarantee it.

Citrus Fresh is fantastic blend of Orange, Lemon, Tangerine, Mandarin and Grapefruit with a hint of Spearmint, so you can imagine the burst of flavor in every single drop. It is also very rich in d-limonene, very powerful antioxidant. So it makes perfect addition to my morning bowl of goodness.

Eye on Supplements – Life9 Probiotics

Life9 is superb Probiotic Supplement. I first started to take it few years ago when I had digestive issues. It soon improved and I could see my skin getting better as well as my bloating going down. My favorite company, when it comes to wellness and health, Young Living, has several amazing supplements and I want to shed light on them one by one.

Why should we take probiotics?

1/ Helps maintain healthy microbiome – in today’s diet, there is too much sugar and other unhealthy ingredients and our gut health suffers

2/ Supports immunity – can you believe that 80% of your immunity lies in your gut?

3/ Supports nutrients absorption. No matter how healthy you might eat, if your body cannot absorb the nutrients, it goes away too quickly.

4/ Maintains your mood – happy gut, happy brain! Yes it’s true!

5/ Supports Healthy Weight Management

6/ Freshens Breath – healthy Microbiome also means better breath

7/ Reduces fatigue – fatigue is often sign of bad digestion.

8/ improves your skin – our skin really shows the state of our guts. Bad digestion shows up quickly with breakouts. Maintaining healthy gut means maintaining healthy skin

So what solution does Young Living Offer? LIFE 9!

Life 9 is a proprietary combination of 9 friendly bacteria strains that are essential to support a healthy system.

Life 5 has been a great product that is very beneficial, so we wanted to create an even more robust formula that will better withstand shipping to international markets. Life 9 features 17 billion live cultures representing 9 different bacteria strains.

Includes 9 bacteria strains to support a healthy system:

1 Lactobacillus acidophilus

2 Bifidobacterium lactis

3 Lactobacillus plantarum

4 Lactobacillus rhamnosus

5 Lactobacillus salivarius

6 Streptococcus thermophilus

7 Bifidobacterium breve

8 Bifidobacterium bifidum

9 Bifidobacterium longum

How to Use

Take 1 capsule every night following a meal or as needed. 

C AU T ION S:

If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition, consult a health professional prior to use. 

Storage: Keep in a cool, dark place. Do not expose to excessive heat or direct sunlight. Tightly secure special cap after use. REFRIGERATE AFTER OPENING.

Just in time for Christmas

I’m Czech and we spend basically entire December baking Christmas cookies and chasing our family away from the boxes full of those cookies… then Christmas comes and we are chasing everybody with plates full of cookies, making them eat it😂😂😂. I know, crazy. But we love it.

One of my favorite cookies are Gingerbread cookies. My auntie is the best when it comes to those. Hers are delicious and also absolutely gorgeous because she sure knows how to decorate them I don’t decorate mine cause I am not that good. To be honest, mine look like a 3 year old got hold of the frosting. I kid you not. But they are delicious and people always ask for more and ask for recipe.

I have tweaked the recipe using my beloved Young Living Essential oils. No need storing the spices anymore. So simple. I use Thieves EO and Ginger EO from the Vitality line (it’s marked for internal use). These oils are absolutely fantastic for our bodies and they taste great too

So here is my Thieves Gingerbread Cookies Recipe

Ingredients

250 g of All Purpose Flour

125 g of brown sugar

65 g of honey

1 large egg or 2 small ones

1/2 teaspoon of baking Soda

4 drops of Thieves Vitality Essential Oil

2 drops of Ginger Vitality Essential oil

1 extra egg, whisked, for eggwash

Method

Mix everything together very well and let the dough rest for about 12 h ( can be in the fridge up to 1 week).

Dust your working space and roll it out, cut your shapes as desired. Preheat oven to about 250C and bake on high for about 5-6 min till brown. When you remove them from the oven, rub it with egg wash right away. It will get the cookies nice and glossy.

Sometimes I like to use this Easy Bake Cookie Cutting sheet. It cooks 24 cookies at once, so it’s super easy and efficient. You can find it on Amazon.

Do you want to know more about Thieves Vitality and Ginger Vitality?

Thieves Vitality combines Lemon, Clove, Eucalyptus Radiata, Cinnamon Bark, and Rosemary essential oils and is fantastic to boost your family’s immunity and support whole body wellness. I love cooking with it or just put a drop into my coffee, into my hot wine, or make Thieves Honey Tea when we need little extra support.

Ginger Vitality essential oil food supplement is distilled from the root of the ginger plant and lends itself to a wide variety of applications. Used as both a flavouring in the kitchen and as a dietary supplement, Ginger+ is a distinct and versatile oil that’s great to keep on hand.

Add a drop to your tea for a nice, soothing hot drink. 

Dip a toothpick in Ginger+ and add it to your stir-fry for a zing of exotic flavour. 

Ginger+ makes a great dietary supplement! Add a drop to a vegetarian gel capsule to support normal digestion, natural defences, normal vascular health, proper functioning of the respiratory tract and assisting your muscle, bone and joint health. 

Add a spicy twist to a refreshing classic! Try adding a few drops of Ginger+ to a pitcher of homemade lemonade. 

Mix a few drops of Ginger+ with your marinades and salad dressings to add a warm, spicy note. 

Dilute 1 drop with 1 drop of carrier oil. Put in a capsule and take up to 3 times daily.
