Magenta Salad  by JOZ
I'll give a rough idea of measurements, but really it's a dump, taste and add type of recipe.

1 beet
2-3 apples
1 carrot
1/2 a cup of raisins
1/2 a cup of walnuts
1 tbsp. Olive oil
1 lemon juiced
1/2-1 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2-1 tsp. Raw Honey

I like to use an electric chopper or a food processor. I shred or finely chop the beet and the carrot. The apples I dice up by hand so that the textures vary. I finely chop the walnuts. Add these all together in a bowl. Then add the raisins, olive oil, cinnamon, raw honey and juiced lemon.

If it is too dry add more olive oil or lemon depending on your likes and tastes. If the apples are really sweet you may want to leave out or cut back on the honey

    My husband was suffering from leg cramps in the middle of the night. I read that nuts such as filberts and almonds are good for alleviating leg cramps as well as figs. I created this recipe that seems to be working. The nuts must be soaked or sprouted otherwise they block the absorption of calcium. (See the link, "SPROUTING Why Sprout" on this site)

    1 cup raw organic filberts
    1 cup raw organic almonds
    1/4 tsp Celtic Sea Salt (has 80 minerals)
    1/8 tsp Stevia (Better Stevia or Sweet Leaf)
    1 Tbs raw organic olive oil
    1/8 to 1/4 cup filtered water

    Combine all of the above ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend until smooth.

    Serve on celery, sprouted organic bread or rice cakes or stuff small mushrooms and dehydrate at 118 degrees. I use chopped dried organic figs instead of jelly for his nut butter and fig sandwiches.

    Store in a wide mouthed mason jar in the refrigerator. Delicious!
