These are delicious lunch box bars that are raw, frozen and highly nutritious. With the help of a food processor these are so quick to make with just a few simple and natural ingredients. This recipe can also be made without a food processor but the mix may not hold together as well and be more like a trail mix.
Into the food processor (chopping blade) place:
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup sesame seeds
1 cup coconut flakes
1 cup chia seeds
1/4 teaspoon sea salt.
1 cup organic coconut oil
1/2 cup raw organic honey
Place the mix into a rectangular baking tray and even out with the back of a spoon. You can line it with baking paper or if you are using a metal tray like this one can just tap the bottom to remove it when frozen. Ensure it is pressed very firmly. I like to cut the mix into bars at this point but you can also do it later when the slab comes out of the freezer. If you do it now then when frozen the pieces just snap apart, whereas later you will slice the slab with a knife.
Place into the freezer for about an hour and then either snap the pieces apart of slice. Return to the freezer and eat as desired. So delicious.

Choosing your meat is the key decision and l advise to buy the best quality that you can. I like to use organic, grass fed or free-range options with beef, lamb and chicken my favourite. I usually use mince and add herbs from the garden, egg, coconut flour, onion, stock, grated vegetables, seasoning etc. Alternatively you can use a whole piece of meat such as a breast fillet that is spiced with seasoning such as cinnamon and cumin. If l make up the mince burgers l form the patties and refrigerate for an hour as this helps them to hold together. You can bake the burgers in the oven covered with foil or cook in your fry pan. I generally cover them either way as their is quite a lot of fat splattering about and it can get messy to clean up.
I think a burger is a year round dish as the accompanying vegetables can be altered to include more raw or cooked ones depending on what is in season.

This soup has a wonderful balance of flavours with the most important element being a beautiful home-made chicken stock. It is such a delightful colour and looks so much like tomato soup but has a very distinctive flavour of beetroot with a lovely sweetness.
Check the recipe-soup section of the website for the chicken stock recipe.
Prepare the vegetables by washing, peeling and chopping.
Add the stock and put the lid on and let simmer for about 60 minutes.
This is a very thick and filling soup. It has the most delicious sweet flavour and the colour is enticing. The main tips for this soup are to brown the vegetables before you put the stock in, use a very good quality home-made stock and use fresh vegetables.
