It was about day 3 of no sleep that that little voice inside started chatting again, this time louder, "KK, get a hold of yourself!!!! Stop being so dramatic. Just keep it simple!!!"
SOME OF MY FAVORITE "CLEAN" CONDIMENTS TO ADD TO VEGGIES. IF YOU LIKE THE TASTE OF MEAT PACIFICO BROTH IS THE BOMB. AND ITS PACKAGING IS SAFE!
So I had glass of wine and took a nap. When I woke up, I began cooking simple lifesaving foods. I am not a devout vegan or nutritionist. I am not a doctor. I am just a wife who did not want to lose her husband. It was that love changed our lives forever. Cancer has taught us not to complicate our lives. You need to embrace and attack each day head on and look for the opportunity for a lesson. My lesson was about living foods.
HOW COULD YOU NOT ADORE THIS GUY?!
I now believe in balance. I promote that 70% of your diet should be plant based and organic. BUT it should also taste good. I promise this blog will never fool you- when it comes to taste.
I don't like things that say they are, "Raw Mac N Cheeze" and then you taste it and it is more like nutty gooey stuff. I believe if you keep it simple, you can go out and have a cheeseburger...once and awhile.
So weekly I will post a simple recipe that will introduce some great foods that can help your body fight back whatever it may be battling:)
Since it is a holiday week I will start with a cruciferous vegetable! Brussels are my favorite cancer fighting food! Two major reasons you should eat them; Sulforaphane and Vitamin C. I do them a hundred different ways but my "Mexican Explosion" Brussels are a favorite among my spicy friends:)
1 bag of organic brussels. 1/2 cup Dijon. 1 garlic clove. 3 tbs of jalapeno juice. 1 tbs olive oil. 1 tbs dry organic mustard. 1 tsp Celtic sea salt. 1 tsp cayenne pepper 1/4 cup of Soy-Free Veganaise
The thing about brussels is you do not want to undercook or overcook them. In order to maintain their healing qualities it is best to cook them until you see their color change to a slightly brighter green. For this recipe I chop the ends and halve the brussels. Then I lightly steam them in an organic broth until I see them change color. I strain them and put them to the side. Then I add my Dijon,crushed garlic,jalapeno juice, olive oil, dry mustard,cayenne, salt and Soy-free veganise.
NOTE*** If you cannot handle spicy foods for medical or any other reasons my alternative is to replace the jalapeno juice and cayenne with 1 tablespoon of Raw Organic Blackstrap Molasses. (Click on the link to see why Blackstrap Molasses is a great alternative.)
Once your spicy or sweet aioli is mixed, put your brussels back on the stove on a medium heat and fully coat them with the mixture. Once you can see they have started to soften in the middle, remove and serve.
