Dee’s Vegan Raw Chia Onion Bread with Cashew & Chive Cream Cheese

30 Jul dees-raw-onion-and-chia-bread.

This recipe isn’t fully “raw” as I don’t own a dehydrator, but I dehydrated it using a standard  oven at 100 F so some heat will have passed through the bread.

To make the Bread

Ingredients

1 cup of sunflower seeds (ground)

1/2 cup of ground chia seeds (we use Chia Bia milled chia) you can use flax if you like

2 large onions sliced really thinly

2 tablespoons of olive oil

1 tsp of sea salt

Method

Mix everything in a bowl and spread onto a baking tray – thinly or thickly.  Heat over to 100 and low bake for 2 hours, turn half way through and low bake for another hour.  Cut into squares and store in an airtight container, they should last nearly 2 weeks.    I like to cook them until they turn crispy, they are really filling.

Cashew & Chive Cream Cheese

Soak 1 cup of cashews overnight blend with 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar,  1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 1 tsp of onion powder, chopped chives and season with salt.  Use a high speed food processor to blend together.

This keeps in the fridge for about a week.  I use it on crackers and wraps.   Enjoy

Dee’s Vegan Quinoa Pots “…the healthiest quick-meal solution” says Fitness Expert Karl Henry

1 Jul Dee's Quinoa Pot with Hot Mexican Peppers

Karl Henry fitness expert from Operation Transformation has recommended our Quinoa Pots for a healthy quick-meal solution.  Customers have been asking for stockists and the list is short to date, as these are only available in Tesco.  However we hope to have some more stockists soon for those of you that are not near to a Tesco store.

Quinoa is a high protein superfood and our tasty Quinoa pots are ideal for those with busy lives who do not want to compromise their health.

KARL HENRY – 29 JUNE 2013

Exercising in the morning helps you burn more calories during the day and also burn more fat in your workouts, but it isn’t for everyone.

If you aren’t a morning person, then don’t work out first thing.

Remember, it should always be fun. If it’s not, then try another type of exercise.  Fast food

When you come home from work hungry for your dinner, you want something quick and easy – but it can be hard to get somethinghealthy, too.

Last week, I came across Dee’s Quinoa Pots in the supermarket. Seriously yummy but low in salt, sugar and preservatives, I was seriously impressed. They are vegetarian and use the superfood quinoa as a source of protein.

This is one of the healthiest quick-meal solutions that I have tasted and, better still, it’s made by an Irish company. Check out dees.ie to see all of its products.
