Hi, this is Mary, commonly referred to as "Momma Mary" by many of my friends. Welcome to my website! This site is dedicated to everyone out there, vegetarian or not, who desires to prosper and be in health! After 15 years of sharing health and nutrition seminars around the country, 12 years of running restaurants and health food stores, and several decades of raising vegan children, I decided it's time to share the wealth of experience my family has gleaned in the areas of: natural remedies that really work, healthy recipes that will tantalize your taste buds, anecdotes about raising a vegan family and much, much more! I pray you will be blessed and that you will come back soon!
Watch for our on-line store opening soon!
1 1/2 Cups Raw Macadamia Nuts (Raw Cashews will also work well)
3 TBS Fresh Lemon Juice
6 TBS Nutritional Yeast
2-3 Large Cloves of Garlic
1 tsp Salt
1 Large Red Pepper (cut into chunks and deseeded)
Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth and creamy. You may need to add a small amount of water in order to get this to process properly. If you like it spicy, add a small amount of cayenne or Tobasco to the mix while it is processing. This lasts for up to 2 1/2 weeks in the fridge and makes an incredibly delicious spread for toast or crackers.
Macadamia nuts are very high in palmitoleic acid, a type of mono-unsaturated fatty acid that may actually speed up the metabolism of fat in the body. It is also beneficial in reducing cholesterol due to its high mono-unsaturated fat content making it a King of nuts; and one of my favorite foods. Though they are expensive, when used in this recipe, I find that several cups will actually last for several weeks making it very cost effective in the long run! Try it, I promise you will like it.
This year I developed a new product I call Flax Appeal. It is awesome! A combination of ground flax seeds, chia seeds, ground psyllium seeds and husks and a good dose of probiotic. My dad who is a retired Urologist told me that in all sincerity it is the best medication he has ever seen developed in his 50 years as a physician! He loves the effect it has on the colon, I love that it gives me endurance throughout the day, and keeps me feeling full for 6 hours or more! It will also help to lower cholesterol levels, and boosts the mood as it is full of omega 3's. Call us at Veggies if you would like to try this wonderful new product!
