Vegetarian, high protein recipes that are great post-workout meals

Hermit Power Protein Mix

The inventor of this recipe is a man who lives as a hermit in the woods of Northern Ontario. At 80 years old he is still active. From his well-educated background in nutrition, he had designed this seed breakfast blend.

1 Tbsp. Flax seeds
2 Tbsp. Sesame seeds
2 Tbsp. Sunflower seeds
1 tsp. Honey
½ banana sliced

Blend dry ingredients in coffee grinder until powdered and remove. Add honey and small amounts of hot water. Mix until desired consistency. Slice banana on top with a sprinkle of Sucanat or honey.

Generally we recommend a fruit breakfast so the body can continue its cleansing process from the night before. But, if you live an active life and find yourself working through lunch, this high-calorie breakfast will sustain you through the day.

Peanut Butter Replacer

The problem with peanuts is that they don’t taste very good until they are roasted. Even though natural peanut butter found in your health food store is certainly better than the processed junk sold in supermarkets, the peanuts have been heated, compromising the oil. Peanuts are low in essential fatty acids, therefore are a more desirable oil if you "must" fry.

I think we have an excellent dip to rival any peanut butter on the market. It is fast and simple to make, but most importantly, it is raw. The delicate oils have not been compromised. And, it tastes great on toast.


sesame seeds
pinch of carob
pinch of cinnamon
tiny pinch of salt

Add sesame seeds to your coffee grinder, which by now is suffering with an identity crisis, and grind seeds to a fine powder. Slowly work in unpasteurized honey until desired consistency. Add cinnamon, carob and salt to taste. Sesame seeds can be replaced with sunflower or almond. Your kids will love it. Make fresh every second day.

Kristen's Nifty Nut Buds

2 Tbs. sesame seeds
1/8 cup sucanat
2 Tbs. sunflower seeds
pinch of cinnamon
handful of raisins
pinch of carob

An eight year old Kristen came up with this on her own. It only goes to show that you are never too young to be creative in the kitchen.

Powder seeds in the coffee grinder. Warm raisins by rinsing them under hot water. Mush raisins in coffee grinder. Mix all ingredients in a small bowl and knead by hand. Make ball or logs and roll in Sucanat and carob. Place in freezer 30 min. This is great fun for kids.



cup sesame seeds
2 cups water
squirt vanilla extract
1 tsp. carob
2 Tbs. Sucanat
tsp. honey
pinch cinnamon

Put 1/2 cup of seeds in the grinder. Then transfer to the blender, and add a small amount of water. The mixture will turn into a thick paste. Let the blender run for 3-5 minutes. If the mixture becomes too thick add more water. Add a little more water and let the blender run for a few more minutes. Then add the rest of the water. Add other ingredients, strain and chill before serving. Dates and raisins also work well.
