I discover the Chayotte

Christophine or chouchou or chayotte is a magnificent fruit vegetable that grows on Reunion Island and in the West Indies my friend my sister. However, a long time ago, Christophine was also found in Marseille, France.

The Christophine is absolutely delicious, with a taste between zucchini, cucumber and potato.

Very low in calories, Christophine is diuretic, purifying, rich in vitamin C and it helps breastfeeding mothers.

I use the S-blade blender to make shredded Christophine and just add tamari, olive oil and apple cider vinegar.

Cherimoya or custard apple is an exotic fruit very rich in vitamins and minerals, with black seeds inside (inedible) and a sweet and soft flesh. I love cherimoya! Impossible to describe the taste to you in the right words, for me cherimoya reminds me of childhood candies.

Nature offers us so many different fruits. There is so much variety when you eat fresh fruits and vegetables, so much abundance and so much to discover. While you provide goodness to your body, you improve your vitality and you respect the life of animals.

You will find custard apple or cherimoya in markets, in African and Asian stores and at Grand Frais if you are in France.

Dates unboxing: Ajwa, Safawi, Sukari and Khidri

Thanks to my daughter who did her research on my friend Anne-Marie’s channel Crudivegan, I ordered from Dattelmann my friend my sister. You know I love dates and when I lived in Tunisia I used to enjoy the high quality dates you find there. Dates are of course very sweet but also very concentrated in minerals, especially potassium, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium, in trace elements, such as copper, zinc or even iron and antioxidants.

So I am pleased to present four varieties of dates that are absolutely tasty but not too sweet: Ajwa with its medicinal properties, Safawi with a little coffee taste, Sukari chewy which is like a mixture of honey and caramel and the beautiful dark and intense Khidri.

I buy my tigernuts at Biovie. Making tiger nuts milk with a juice extractor is so easy. Be sure to insert the nuts with water in the Kuvings extractor (I have an evo 820). I love the taste of tigernuts milk. It is very concentrated when made in the juicer so it can be mixed with water to make it last longer. My tiger nuts mylk lasted for two days in the fridge.

The 6 things or foods that I eat are: fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, superfoods and sardines. The way I eat is neither the best nor the worst. The 6 things I eat aren’t necessarily what are right for you. Here I am sharing an example of one way to eat to inspire you to dig, research and find what is good for you personally my friend my sister.

Not rice not cooked?

Not rice not cooked?

Wild rice is not really rice. I discovered wild rice thanks to Cara Brotman and I am delighted to test it for you my friend my sister.

Not rice not cooked?

It’s delicious with a nutty soft taste.

Not rice not cooked?

I started by soaking my black wild rice for 24 hours. Then I mixed the soaked wild rice with coconut oil, lime, salt and a little red onion.

Cara’s video which inspired me is entitled “What Cara Brotman Eats in a Day ONE MEAL A DAY Meal Plan to Burn Fat”.

It says in French that wild rice is not technically rice. They say it should be cooked for 40 minutes. But I won’t 😉
