All amounts are approximate. Serves ONE person.
* Take one organic apple, chop and cover with water in a small pot. * Sprinkle with a little salt (1/2 tsp. Salt helps break down fibers.) * Add dash cinnamon (1 tsp. Helps metabolize sugars.) * Add grated fresh ginger root (1+ Tbsp. Enhances digestion.) * Chop and add 5-8 dates (great added natural sweetener.) * Throw in a small handful of almonds (8-10. Extra fiber, protein and good fat.) * Add other dried fruit as desired (raisins, goji berries, mulberries, mango, apricot) * Top with a spoonful of GHEE (1 Tsp. Adds great fat, helps body absorb vitamins and minerals, carries nutrition IN to the cells and waste products OUT.) * If desired, add 1/4 cup chia seeds or flax meal (beneficial fiber).
Bring water to boil, then turn down low and simmer up to 10 minutes or so (until apples are quite soft). Mash together and serve as is. Enjoy!
