If you are getting tired of using chickpeas to make your breakfast scramble then I have the thing for you. If you can’t use chickpeas due to fibroids and just want to eat less of them, then I have the ingredient for you!
Soy as we know is not recommended for consumption no matter how they dress it up or package it. This recipe is traditionally made with either soy milk or dairy milk in some cultures, but in the African Bio- Mineral culture – created by Dr. Sebi I am beginning a new tradition using hemp seed milk.
Hemp Seed Crumble – Recipe
1 cup hemp seed hearts
3 cups of spring water
blend to make milk
place in a sauce pan and boil and stir lightly the entire time
The milk will begin to form and may even begin to curdle
After the milk begins to bubble reduce the heat to a simmer and squeeze in 2 key limes (remove seeds)
2 Key lime squeezed – this is needed to make the milk curdle
Allow the mixture to cool and pour it into a fine strainer (place cheesecloth over the strainer) and sit it over a bowl to catch the liquid.
In the strainer you will see lots of curdled hemp seeds milk and this is what is used to make the crumble.
After about 2 minutes to allow most of the water to drain off, pick up the cheesecloth with the curds inside and twist to remove all excess liquids.
You will be left with the curds that will then be used in your breakfast scramble.
Make sure to order hemp seeds and have them delivered to your home before you run out!
Dr. Sebi says, “Avoid using a microwave. It will kill your food.”

Poke salad – greens

Bananas – the smallest one or the Burro/mid-size (original banana)
Berries – all varieties- Elderberries in any form – no cranberries
Limes (key limes preferred with seeds)
Orange (Seville or sour preferred, difficult to find)

After consuming up to 3 cups of spring water I head to the kitchen to make a fruit break fast. My favorite meal is Creamy Coconut Parfait and today I created a coconut blueberry parfait and it was electric!! ! I wish I blended the meat of 2 fresh young jelly coconuts instead of 1.
RECIPE: Blend the ingredients till smooth and creamy (consistency of cake mix)
1 FRESH (not young thia) young jelly coconut meat
1/4 cup blended blueberries
1 TBS sea moss jelly
1/4 cup of coconut meat
sliced yellow burro banana
fresh coconut meat
This break fast and other fresh fruit break fast meals are featured in our new cookbook
As much as I love to use fresh ginger I often end up with it going bad before I use all of it. I recently came across an article on freezing it instead of storing it in the fridge. Heres a tip on how to store it in the freezer. Don’t just toss it in the it freezer whole – Grate and measure it first. The benefit of finely grating your ginger is that you won’t end-up with those stringy bits of ginger in your food. Since it’s a bit time-consuming, it’s nice to do a whole bunch at once, that way you always have “fresh” ginger on hand when you need it. Another great tip is to store it in 1 tbs sizes because most recipes call for about 1 tbs. After grated the ginger don’t discard the scraps but instead boil and strain them to make ginger tea.
Ready! Set! Go! You have made the decision so many of us have made and that decision is to be an alkaline vegan. After learning about the alkaline vegan lifestyle through viewing DVDs and attending live lectures of Dr. Sebi I made the same decision many others have made to commit to the lifestyle of an alkaline vegan.
Now that you’ve made the decision you may be asking yourself what is next. There are many pointers that all lead to great health but for this blog I want to focus on 3 questions asked by Naya one of the members in my Facebook groups Alkaline Vegan Girls, 1) where do you grocery shop, 2) how often, and 3) what are the pantry essentials? https://www.facebook.com/groups/alkalinevegangirls/ These are the my thoughts about the questions asked:
“My Top 5 Places to Shop”
Local Farmer’s Markets ~ fresh produce, grains, flours, and spices, nuts
Local International Markets ~ fresh produce with Hispanic origins, fresh herbs for seasoning foods
Local Health Food Stores ~ loose herbs for teas, some grains, nuts and seeds
Chain stores ~ While I am out in the community working with client’s I look to see what is on the nutritional guide and sometimes the chain stores will have spelt and quinoa flour
Online ~ herbs for teas and seasonings, pastas and breads.
How Often Do I Shop and What are the Pantry Essentials:
I shop weekly and usually at the beginning of the week on Sundays or the end of the week on Saturday. The key essentials for an alkaline vegan to have in the pantry are the following:
fresh produce ~ onions, peppers, mushrooms, kale, dandelions greens, romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, butternut squash, chayote squash, key limes, seeded grapes, burro bananas, fresh young coconuts, green/yellow, frozen fruit for smoothies
Nuts, seeds and beans ~walnuts, hemp seeds, and garbanzo beans dry
Raw agave’ nectar and pitted dates for sweeteners
Fresh or dried herbs for seasonings ~ ginger, oregano, basil, fennel, onion powder, sage, dill, all spice, clove
With the above foods in your house you can make several meals to include soups, teas, stews, salads, stir fries, cookies, ice cream, pancakes, veggie vurgers, break fast meals and several other dishes.
The list of foods go on and on and all created from the nutritional guide Dr. Sebi provides to assist alkaline vegans with choosing healthy, natural foods that will create healing environments for our bodies to thrive in. The list Dr. Sebi created is not without flaw but it is a list with the least mucous causing foods for us to consume.

I’m on the road traveling to visit family and it is a must to be prepared with electric foods when traveling! No worries I learned from the best, packed my clothes first and later packed my food! 2 1/2 gallon size smoothies: Raspberry & Mango explosion and Strawberry & Raspberry & Soursop Trio. In the small crockpots I have sautéed kale with onions and peppers on top of a trios of wild rice quinoa and amaranth And one large sautéed mushroom . The second pot has the burro stew with peppers, onions and mushrooms on top of the wild rice trio. I made some ginger cookies and left them right on the counter. Let’s not forget the 1/2 gallon of spring water and key limes, and all my herbs.
