Kale is rich in lutein and zeaxanthin—two carotenoids that protect the cells from the damaging effects of free radicals and the eyes from developing age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.

1 bunch kale

1/4 cup apple cider or coconut vinegar

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

2 teaspoons garlic, minced or pressed

1/2 teaspoon Celtic sea salt

Pinch of cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes

Wash the kale and then cut it into 3-inch long strips and set aside to dry. (Remove all ribs; save for juicing.)

Add lemon juice, vinegar, olive oil, and cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes to a blender and process on high speed until well combined. Pour the marinade into a bowl. Then dip the kale leaves in the marinade one at a time and massage the marinade into the leaf.

Shake off excess marinade and place kale pieces on dehydrator Paraflex sheets and dehydrated for 4 to 8 hours at 105 degrees or until crisp. (Chips will get smaller as they dry.)

These chips are so delicious I’ll bet you won’t have any left to store.

Pecans are the only native American tree nut. Eating about a handful of pecans each day may play a role in protecting the nervous system, according to an animal study published in Current Topics in Nutraceutical Research. Organic pecans are a good buy because pecan trees tend to be sprayed frequently with herbicides and miticides (pesticides that kills mites).

1/2 cup pecans or walnuts

1/4 cup sunflower seeds

1/4 cup hemp seeds

1/2 cup ground chia or flax seeds (grind well)

1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, soaked 1 hour, drained and sliced

1 tablespoon ginger, peeled and minced

2-3 cloves fresh garlic, pressed or minced

1 teaspoon Celtic sea salt

2 carrots, chopped

1 stalk celery, chopped

1/2 cup red or yellow pepper, stemmed, seeded, chopped

1/2 cup zucchini, chopped

1/4 – 1/2 cup dates, pitted, and chopped

1/4 sweet onion, chopped

1/4 cup chopped parsley

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried

1 tablespoon water

Process the nuts and sunflower seeds in a food processor until ground fine. Add the hemp seeds and grind thoroughly. Set aside in a large bowl. Add the chia or flax seeds to the ground nut and seed mixture; stir to mix.

Process the sun-dried tomatoes, ginger, garlic and salt in the food processor. Add the carrot, celery, bell pepper, zucchini, dates, onion, lemon juice, oregano, and water. Process until well combined, but not mushy. Transfer the vegetable mixture to the ground nut and seed mixture.

Place half the mixture back in the food processor and pulse several times to mix well. Transfer to a new bowl. Repeat with remaining mixture.

Form patties with 1/3 cup of the mixture. Dehydrate patties for 1 hour at 140 degrees. Reduce the temperature to 105 degrees and dehydrate for 4 hours or until top is dry. Flip the burgers and dehydrate another 4 hours or until as dry as desired. Serve with Healthy Raw Ketchup and a slice of Raw Bread, as desired.
