Kitchen Experiments: Turmeric iced tea & raw chocolatey oatmeal

Ever since I got back from a whole month of raw food eating at Bahay Kalipay, I’ve done my best to “experiment” in the kitchen as part of a continuing effort to eat healthy.

I put quotation marks on experiment as I’m not usually the person you should place anywhere in a kitchen – not the sink, not the ref, and definitely not near anything that can produce fires.

Here are a few things I’ve tried though that have turned out to be not so bad and they both have one thing in common: COCO NECTAR.

Turmeric Iced Tea

Super easy alternative to iced tea which we all love.

No matter what it says on the cover, it’s very rare that those mass-produced iced tea drinks you find in convenience stores are actually truly good for you. And even then you have to question, where does the “tea” in iced tea come in?

The turmeric does have a very strong ginger-like taste but it was easy for me to get used to and eventually, look for. If you’re trying to wean yourself off sweets, getting used to less artificially flavored food and drinks are a good way to start. Next time you do try a famous store-brought drink, chances are it’ll taste way too strong and you’re gonna start looking for your turmeric icead tea 🙂

Raw, nutty, chocolately oatmeal

Simple and easy! Raw soaked oats, almond milk, baked lentils, sunflower seeds, raw cacao nibs, chia seeds, coconut meat, and coco nectar.

It’s absolutely okay to eat raw oats and perfect to eat in the morning – quite detoxifying 🙂

Try these out. I’m pretty sure you’re going to end up more successful than I am. The ingredients are easy to find and if ever you need some coco nectar, you can get it from me.

Thanks for reading!
