Going Bananas for banana smoothie bowls

I love eating smoothie bowls because first of all they are SO TASTY and second – they are packed with nutrients and easy on the digestion. When you include bananas, they give your smoothie a thick consistency, flavour and, if you are looking for more satiety, caloric density.

The unique mix of vitamins, minerals, and low glycemic carbohydrates in bananas make those meals a raw plant-powered fuel before or after your workouts!

Here are some quick suggestions, I hope you enjoy them too!

“Wise” Bread Recipe – Anti-Inflammatory and Protective

“Wise” Bread Recipe – Anti-Inflammatory and Protective

If you are wondering why “wise” – walnuts are one of the most abundant plant-based sources of Omega-3, essential for the proper functions of your brain and efficient levels of concentration. No wonder why their shape resembles a human brain, right?!

Garlic in turn is one of the most eminent anti-inflammatory foods, helping you stay resilient to disease and infections, and also improving your iron metabolism and protecting your heart.

Ingredients:

Cup of Gluten-Free Flour

Cup of walnuts, 2 table spoons of sesame seeds

Clove of garlic

Touch of cumin

Tea spoon of baking soda

Table spoon of  apple vinegar

Salt for taste

Touch of olive oil

_______________

Blend the walnuts,  sesame seeds and garlic together with the cumin and add them to the flour. Add the rest ingredients to the dough and knead it until it becomes well formed and ready to be put in the oven. 

Bake for around 30-40 minutes on 300° F/ 150°C.

In all honesty, I didn`t get around to taste my creation but I`ve heard it was very good!:)

As a high raw foodist the feedback coming from others is all I need to feel satisfied!:) And for what I can tell, it smelled really delicious!
