ingredients for raw chocolate banana ice cream.

RAW VEGAN BANANA ICE CREAM INGREDIENTS

Bananas â€“ freeze the ripest bananas you can, they will be sweet enough so you don’t need to any sweetener.

Cocoa powder â€“ use your favorite, whether its raw cacao, regular cocoa, or dutch chocolate. This batch was processed with dutch cocoa, which makes it ultra dark and chocolatey, but typically I use raw cacao powder.

Splash of non-dairy milk or water â€“ can be any type of plant based milk, preferably unsweetened, this will help get the frozen mixture moving.

NOTES:

A splash or two of milk or water will help the mixture move a little better when blending. For completely raw, use homemade plant milk, or a splash of water is fine too!

To Freeze: Keep this ice cream in the freezer by storing in an airtight freezer safe container. Freeze for at least six hours or overnight for a hardened ice cream, let thaw 10 min or so before scooping. Double this recipe and freeze for convenience.

Keep those bananas! Instead of throwing out bananas I always freeze them for making smoothies later and this will be a new reason to pull out a frozen banana or two. Doesn’t get much simpler that this.

Do you believe in the benefits of food combining?

15 Food Combining Guidelines

  1. Avoid eating carbohydrates, starches, sugar or sweet fruits with acid fruits.  Too many times we mix: (strawberries and bananas) (cereal with strawberries) (pineapple upside down cake).
  2. Avoid eating concentrated proteins with concentrated carbohydrates.  (meat and potatoes) 
  3. Do not consume two concentrated proteins at the same meal. (meat and cheese*) (nuts and cheese) (shrimp and steak) (avocado and nuts) 
  4. Do not consume fats with proteins. (cheese* and meat again) 
  5. Use fats sparingly.  Beware of many items in the store that say “no fat” in their sales pitch.  They wouldn’t contain fat anyway. (animal fats, dairy products, palm oil, cottonseed oil and coconut) 
  6. Do not eat acid fruits with proteins.  Some lemon juice is fine on proteins.  Avocados combine well with acid fruit, sub-acid fruit and greens. (pineapple and ham) (tomatoes, meat, noodles – goulash, spaghetti) 
  7. Do not combine sweet fruits with proteins, starches or acid fruits, a common dessert mistake. (bananas on cereals) (strawberries and bananas) (dried fruit dehydrates the stomach). 
  8. Eat only one concentrated starch at a meal (potatoes, corn, pumpkin, etc.). 
  9. Acid fruits may be used with sub-acid fruits.  Don’t combine fruits opposite ends; combine at mid-ground. 
  10. Sub-acid fruits may be used with sweet fruit. 
  11. Combine fruit only with lettuce and celery.  Lettuce and celery may even enhance fruit digestion. 
  12. Salads combine very well with proteins, oil and starches.  Greens should make up a majority of our diet.  They leave the stomach quickly unless weighed down by oily dressings.
  13. Sprouts are great.  The best way to eat grains: referring back to #12, salads go well with starches or grains, so sprouts are great with salad. 
  14. Do not consume melons with any other foods.  They move through the stomach in 20 minutes.  If melons don’t agree with you, try them alone. 
  15. Liquids should not be used at any meal.  Dilutes your digestive juices / Prevents us from chewing / Prevents us from secreting saliva.

Do The Things We Eat Have An Affect On The World’s Climate?

YES!

The world’s food system is responsible for about one-quarter of the planet-warming greenhouse gases  generated by humanity each year.

This number includes raising and harvesting all the plants, animals and the animal associated byproducts we eat — beef, chicken, cheese, eggs fish, milk, lintels , wheat, corn and more — as well as processing, packaging and shipping food to markets all over the world. If you eat food, you’re part of this system.

Animal agriculture is the second largest contributor to human-made greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions after fossil fuels and is a leading cause of deforestation, water and air pollution and biodiversity loss.

Meat and dairy, particularly cows, have an huge impact, with the worlds livestock accounting for around 14.5 percent of the world’s greenhouse gases each year. That’s roughly the same amount as the emissions from all the cars, trucks, airplanes and ships combined in the world today.

In general, beef and lamb have the biggest negative climate footprint per gram of protein, while plant-based foods tend to have the smallest impact. Pork and chicken are somewhere in the middle. Take a look at this major study published last year in the journal Science calculated the average greenhouse gas emissions associated with different foods.

Maybe, you can make your next meal a plant-based meal and begin contributing more to saving our planet. Blessings, Dr. Bobby
