The Purple Corn Princess...

So, as you may have noticed, we’ve been adding dozens of new products lately to the RawReform Store. You can see all the new yums to play with HERE and below is a partial list of the new goodies:

Raw Emotions Fridge Magnet
Cacao Paste – block of blended cracao – WOH ;O (see picture to right)
Colosan – incredible, gentle colon cleanser
Tat Tvam Asi – divine devotional chanting CD from India
Hemp Maca E3Live Protein Powder
Omega FoodPro Food Processor
Organic Raw Pistachios
Noni Fruit Powder – powerful stuff ;)
Raw Wild Jungle Peanuts
Camu-camu powder – supposedly the highest source of Vitamin C in nature, weight for weight.

One item in particular has been attracting the interest of some of you though – the PURPLE CORN – ahahahaaaaaaa, yes, indeed...why purple and what to do with it? WELL, you’re in luck, dear ones, as it just so happens that a magical friend of ours in the UK – Kate Magic (yes, that’s her real name) - is quite the purple corn princess and has this fabulous info and recipe to share with y’all, from her site rawliving.co.uk:

“Purple corn is a powerful antioxidant which comes from Peru. It is a plant which is greatly revered in Mayan culture; it is said to be the plant of remembrance. It is a very ancient plant, and like eating algae, eating it connects us to our ancient cellular memory. There is an ancient Hopi prophecy that says that when purple corn comes to the West, that is a sign that great changes are happening on the planet.”

I'd also add to this, that purple corn is said to have anti-inflammatory properties, is supportive of tissue regeneration, helps reduce cholesterol and improve circulation...ooo la la...
Ah-hah :) So...wonderful, you’ve bought your bag of magical, third-eye bumpin’ purple kernels and ground them down to a powder in your blender – whattaya gonna do with them now? Read on for a yummy recipe ;)

On March the 24th I had:

1.5 quarts water
1 quart watermelon/mandarin juice
1 quart apple/cucumber/celery/dandelion juice
1 pint water
1 quart watermelon/mandarin juice
1tbsp paste: spirulina powder, maca powder, bee pollen, honey, water
3 cups ‘5000’ volts: celery/red pepper/hot pepper/garlic/orange juice, with added cucumber and lettuce leaves
1.5 quarts water

…and here it is - the promised VERY special purple corn recipe to enjoy – with MEASUREMENTS – wow, you can tell this gal’s a pro ;) This is taken from ‘Raw Magic’ by Kate Magic Wood, which will be published by Rawcreation very soon - on April 1st 2008. The world's first superfood recipe book :)

Purple Power Pudding

Serves one
5 mins

Purple corn and cinnamon is an exceptionally tasty combination, and this pudding combines them with Etherium black to produce a treat that makes you feel empurpled and empowered.

1 large avocado
1 tbsp tahini
2 tbsp lucuma
1 tbsp agave
100 ml or 1⁄2 cup water
1 tsp purple corn powder (grind down kernels before-hand)
1/8 tsp Etherium black (optional)
1 tsp cinnamon

Peel and pit the avocado. Put all the ingredients in the blender together and blend for a minute until smooth. Serve topped with blueberries, blackberries, or chopped figs – any purplicious fruit.

on March the 25th I had:

1.5 quarts water
1 quart watermelon/mandarin juice
couple of handfuls of fresh figs, straight from the trees
1.5 quarts water
1 pint zucchini juice
little bowl of mixed sprouts, karengo seaweed, finely chopped broccoli and sunflower seeds covered with sauce made from blending together cucumber, garlic, curry spice and kelp.
2 cups water
1/2 a watermelon
2 cups water

…and while we’re in the realm of Ms. Magic, I’d love to share a link to a YouTube video she recently forwarded me. It’s called ‘Food Court Musical’ and I think it’s an absolute classic :) As I’m sure you’ve probably gathered by now, I like to be in musical world...and this video brings the whole song and dance routine crashing RIGHT into ‘reality’ in a random shopping mall in the US, as a whole team of planted improv actors from the group ‘Improv Everywhere’ burst into full song in the food court...LOVE IT :)))) ENJOY :))))

One love,
