Unprocessed raw fresh food is key for health.
It is essential to eat organic wholesome farm grown greens, raw cacao and sprouted nuts or seeds to make your body functions at its optimal body functioning.
You might think that I am nuts, well yes yes I am nuts about chocolate for sure.
As you probably all know, I am against processed and junk food. I am in love with raw green and sprouted nourishing delicacies. I actually have been making everything from scratch transforming the “non healthy” versions of the traditional recipes I had the chance to be exposed to as a child, into cleaner delicious versions.
It is all an inspiration of each instant.
France with its unbelievable culinary backgrounds taught me the importance of the terroir, I mean the soil in which everything grows, how it influences the taste, the vitamin content and the textures each bite of your food will have.
For me, unprocessed raw fresh food is key for in our diet. We eat every day organic wholesome farm grown greens, raw cacao and sprouted nuts or seeds.
We decided to create a farm in which we would gather our food. We utilize an Israeli drop system to not over-use water and we do a jachère which is in France a rotation of the soil so that it can rest and regenerate its vitamins.
The taste of those vegetables is just like no where to be found (OK maybe in the wonderful region of Provence in France…! )
The recipe of today is just that. I will show you what we picked and what is the final salad. The colors will stun you.
This is what raw food is about pure, fresh, delicious nourishing colors, nutrition, taste, vitamins.
Gastronomic and gourmet food are all about the freshness and the quality of the ingredients you are using.
We chose to use those amazing watermelon seeds from Go RAW and we added a few of their pumpkin and sunflower seeds.
It is just amazing what it adds into your salad. Those seeds are already sprouted.
I know about sprouted seeds as we do it for the seeds we use i our truffles and in our maple syrup slightly covered seeds. They are so delicious and satiating.
If we respect the rules that Nature imposes us on food such as sprouting your nuts and grains, respecting the soil you grow your food and take no shortcuts into your cooking processes (by choosing brands such as Go RAW or Hnina who do it for you), then you are a winner.
We use no refined sugar, gluten, dairy, emulsifier, palm oil… just unprocessed raw fresh food.
We know that it is essential to eat organic wholesome farm grown greens, raw cacao and sprouted nuts or seeds.
Your body will be nourished, your food will taste delicious and you will be happy.

In today's world, we think about food as something that is pre-made, already done for you. Those foods are most of the time addictive and made to make you come back to it (sugar is 8 times more addictive than cocaine and I am not even talking about rancid hydrogenated fat).
At Hnina, we stay away from sweet or too sweet and from processed bad saturated bad fat. Food that is made with scientific "healthy sweet" or refined fat are not.
My life is refined sugar free (including coconut sugar or agave) since I was pregnant with twins 8 years ago.
I have been a dark chocolate addict all my life and yes, at times I was more curvaceous than others.
You know why, because I did not know what sugar could do to me. You always think, that's OK, I will burn it off tomorrow but then you do not realize all the glycation, acidification and inflammatory reactions that can happen in your body while consuming refined glucose or refined fructose.
