Valentine’s Day is coming and for many that means chocolate. I admit that I do have a serious sweet tooth and try to temper it, by making desserts that are not overly sweet. This dessert fits the bill. I love the crunch of chocolate and the creamy filling.

While I do recall eating raw cookie dough as a child, I admit it wasn’t the healthiest of choices. This filling however is made with chickpeas, which is loaded with fiber, vitamins and minerals. You will be pleasantly surprised by this creamy filling.

Enjoy!

10 High Protein Vegetarian Recipes

By Dr. Edward Group

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Vegetarians are often faced with one critical question by meat eaters, “Where do you get your protein?”

The fact is, protein is abundant in plant foods, and while certain dietary deficiencies are common (but avoidable) among vegans and vegetarians, it’s possible to receive all essential amino acids by eating a completely vegan or vegetarian diet. Some plant foods, like avocados and quinoa, contain all essential amino acids and are therefore considered a complete protein. Incorporating these foods into your recipes can ensure you will receive all the protein you need.

Turmeric Milk Recipe: a Natural Mood Enhancer and Depression Fighter

By Alex ‘Earthie Mama’ Du Toit

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Depression affects an estimated 121 million people worldwide [1] and as many as 20 million Americans are currently taking anti-depressant drugs. [2] However, we are finding more and more that pharmaceutical treatments are not providing an adequate solution, because they address the symptom not the cause [3], induce dependency, and often come with intense side-effects that are worse than the condition, including suicidal tendencies, sleep problems, digestive disorders, decreased sex drive, constant nausea, headaches, dry mouth and cold symptoms to name a few. [4] It becomes a constant ugly cycle of misery and dependency which, at best, only helps a depressed person to cope with life rather than to overcome their depression and thrive. And as a result, the United States has seen a 30% increase in suicides since 1999. [5]

Thankfully, nature – as always – gives us many herbs, plants and foods that can heal and help us, without the harsh side-effects and exorbitant costs of pharmaceutical drugs. And when it comes to treating depression, turmeric is one of these amazing gifts from the Earth.

How to Make Your Own Hand Sanitizer – 2 Easy Recipes!

By Alex ‘Earthie Mama’ Du Toit

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Fact: Commercial hand sanitizers are chemically-scented and made with toxic ingredients. While, yes, they do kill certain bacteria and viruses, the unfortunate byproduct is that these chemicals also seep into the pores of the skin and are absorbed into the bloodstream.

The primary active ingredients in commercial sanitizers are Ethyl alcohol and Isopropyl alcohol. [1] Isopropyl alcohol is a petrochemical that is commonly used as an industrial solvent. It is a well-known neurotoxin, meaning it is toxic to the human brain and nervous system. [2] Ethyl alcohol, also known as ethanol, is both neurotoxic and psychoactive. [3] 

Thankfully there are natural sanitizer alternatives that can help keep you and your children’s hands clean and germ-free, without damaging your nervous system in the process. And today I’m going to share with you two simple recipes I came up with that are effective and very easy to make at home! The first one is a gel and the other one is a spray. They both work great, it just depends on your preference.

Understanding Inflammation … and How To Eliminate It Naturally

PLUS inflammation-busting Golden Milk recipe!

By Raluca Schachter

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

One of the most common physical symptoms people suffer is inflammation. It is a sign that the body has initiated self-healing, but when inflammation is prolonged, it can result in an excessive free radical activity and tissue damage.

There are numerous mechanisms in the body which can cause inflammation and it can show up in various forms, but most of the time it directly involves a dysfunction of the digestive system – like most ailments.

The immune response is one of the main mechanisms to initiate inflammatory processes. Citokines are one of the most well-studied molecules involved in the immune response, and are responsible for cellular apoptosis (cell death) and cascades of inflammatory processes. An excessive level of citokines in the body is associated with insulin resistance, diabetes and many other health problems.

Recipe – Immune System Juice Boost and Perfect Jet Lag Remedy

2nd June 2015

By Trinity Bourne

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

I’ve just returned from a wonderful trip to Vancouver Island with my husband. We were working with the most beautiful group on retreat and my role was to provide nourishing, conscious cuisine all week long. I was in my element doing what stirs my soul. It was all quite magical.

And then there was the long haul travel. Definitely not my forte! Hits me like a sledge hammer; sending me into an ungrounded, confused spin as my body clock turned right around to the other side of the globe. Being cramped in a seat, surrounded by 300 other people, breathing recycled air for 10 hours didn’t do any favours either. Upon arrival we quickly tracked down a conscious cafe that sold freshly pressed organic juices. There is nothing quite like a fresh veggie juice to revitalise a tired and worn body. This type of thing can work wonders. It gives the body a rapid infusion of support and helps to balance you back out again. I grabbed fresh organic juices along the way, wherever they were available.

Dr. Kelly Neff

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Raw hemp seeds are one of the most nutritionally dense foods on the planet. While it is related to the cannabis plant, hemp seeds are not psychoactive and are legal to consume in most parts of the world. The nutritional profile for hemp seeds includes:

Protein: Every 100g of hemp seed has 33g of protein, including the complete Amino Acid profile necessary for life and the function of our bodies. Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs): Hemp seeds contain some of the highest amounts of Omega-3 and Omega-6, which helps boost our immune system, and keep our hail and nails shiny. Every 100g of hemp seeds has 47g of EFAs. Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA): Hemp seeds are one of only 5 known sources of this ‘wonder oil’ believed to prevent inflammation. Phytosterols: Hemp seeds contain high amounts of cholesterol-fighting plant sterols, with 1480 mg present in only 20g of hemp seeds. Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA): Hemp seeds have over 15 times as much of the fat-fighting acid as fish oil.
