Cheesy Chips

Here's another  recipe for the dehydrator or a oven on low heat.
If you want to eat chips but want a healthier version, these are it. The recipe is from Alisa Cohen's book "Living on Live Food".


2 sweet potatoes
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup Bragg liquid aminos
1/2 cup nutritional yeast (not bakers yeast)

1. Peel & slice the sweet potato in a spiral slicer, mandolin or any other machine that will make thin slices
2. Combine the water & Bragg liquid aminos in a large bowl
3. Marinate the sweet potatoes in the water & Bragg amino mixture for at least 5 minutes.
4. Drain the chips, and then lay them flat on a dehydrator screen.
5. Dust the sweet potatoes with the yeast. The heavier the coating, the cheesier the taste.
6. Dehydrate at 105 degrees for 8-10 hours or until crispy.

If you choose to use a regular oven instead of a dehydrator, set in on it's lowest setting. When preparing raw foods, low tempeatures are used to avoid killing off the enzymes. Enzymes = living food. Living food makes you feel more energized.  As we age, or bodies natural source of enzymes are depleted. Add to your supply by eating raw or live foods and feel the energy. Cooking destroys the enzymes. I never had more energy than when I was eating a totally raw food diet and juicing. As most of you know, I cured my asthma & allergies by eating this way. When we move to the farm, I hope to have a hoop house so I can grow fresh greens almost year round and enjoy those enzymes (and the energy). I'll try to post more recipes (both live food & regular) that we enjoy. Heres to your health!

Thanks for the recipe. I have never heard of "living foods". Didn't know you cured yourself on the raw foods diet, but it makes sense to me. Wonder why more people don't do that? Have a warm and restful Sunday...debbie

Hi Debbie...most people aren't aware of it. Doctor's prescribe meds & have little nutrition experience, unfortunately.
