Just read the ingredient list and make sure they fit into the Phase 1.0 Healing Diet. The easiest thing to do is to carry nuts, seeds, and dehydrated foods.
We are making it easy for you by sharing this Raw-licious Pickles Recipe. Raw Pickles are part of Dr. Cousens’ Phase 1.0 Healing Diet and makes for a great guilt-free snack!
- 3/4 C. unpasteurized apple cider vinegar
- 1 C. filtered or spring water
- 1 tsp. Transformational Salts or Himalayan Salt
- 2 tsp. ground pickling spice (which you can buy already blended) or just use 2 or 3 whole garlic cloves cut in hallves or quarters
- 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh or dry dill,
- 1/2 Tbsp. peppercorns
- 1 cucumber cut into 1/4-inch thick rounds or into long segments
- 1 small daikon radish, peeled, cut into 1/4-inch thick pieces, round
- 1/4 fennel, cut in quarters
Put vinegar, water, salt, and pickling spice or the fresh spices into a 1-quart mason jar with lid. Tighten the lid and shake to combine the ingredients. Add the vegetables to the jar, close tightly, and shake well to distribute pickling spice. Let sit for at least 5 hours or overnight, and then refrigerate. Use only cucumbers or a combination of other vegetables like red radish, ginger, and so on. Pickles are great on their own or combined into salads or on top of crackers. For a pickle relish, put your pickle mix in the food processor with little bit of stevia or xylitol and grind. Use this pickle relish on top of avocados, salads, breads, and all your other wonderful creations.
