Yummy Spring Lunch!

Today is March 29th. In Southern California we have Tomato plants that survived the winter, fully mature Cabbage, Chives, Cilantro plants and Brussels Sprouts Kept small by a wild bunny. In a quandary about what to make for a quick, healthful lunch for our children and I, I threw this together and it was a big hit! Enjoy!

1/2 C. Mini Brussels Sprouts (about a handful)

1/2 C. Rapini

2 Tomatoes, chopped

2 Chives, chopped

Clove Garlic, pressed

2 Red Jalapenos, roasted, peeled, with seeds removed

2 Tbsp Butter

Soy Sauce

Brown Rice, cooked

Hamburger or Chicken, chopped small (leftover from last night’s dinner @ 1/2lb

Chop the prepared Jalapenos. Stir-Fry all veggies in the Butter. Add Soy Sauce. Add Brown Rice and meat. Heat Thoroughly and serve with quartered (seeds removed) Red Pepper. Yum!

Quick and Easy, yet everyone loved it!

Ignorance is Bliss?!

I ran into a dear friend of mine at Trader Joe’s today.  We hadn’t seen each other in a year and had so much to catch up on!  Her daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in January.  The doctor immediately put her on four insulin shots per day in an effort to control her high blood sugar.  No diet suggestions were given ~ the party for families with diabetes served Diet Coke and Pizza!

The Mom stayed up late nights on a massive search for truth to help her daughter overcome this diagnosis.   Two months later, the MD downloaded the results from her daughter’s Blood Sugar Monitor and was amazed at the results!  The new diet she had put their whole family on had reduced her daughter’s need for insulin from four shots per day to only one!!

Did the Doctor ask what she had done to have such a tremendous difference in her health in such a short time?  NO!!  He just told her to, “Keep cooking what you are cooking!”

Another dear friend was diagnosed with Cancer recently.  She was recommended to a surgeon who recommended that her ovaries be immediately removed to control the high estrogen levels that might be contributing to the cancer.  When she asked him about the side effects and how it would affect the way she would live afterwards he said, “Don’t worry about it, just get it taken care of right away!”

I have to believe that these Doctors are not malicious ~ they are taught not to inquire about what works.  Then they honestly don’t know that there is another way…
