Fiddleheads! What to do?

Today I had just 10 minutes for lunch. These coiled-up fern shoots showed up at my local organic market. They come up in the forest in the spring. Their taste is sweet - something like wild asparagus and green beans. Since I love asparagus omelets, I thought I'd experiment with fiddleheads, throwing in a few shiitakes and garlic. Yummilicious! A Fiddlehead Shiitake Omelet! If you can scramble an egg, you can make an omelet. And there's nothing comparable to the flavor of fresh wild ...

Today's breakfast was a refreshing flavor treat of creamy, luscious papaya. I added tangerine, coconut milk, and strawberries for a WOW! Intensely luscious smoothie!

My Favorite Breakfast Parfait

Healthy food can be easy and delicious. Just layer in a glass and enjoy! Yep, this quick breakfast is from Dr. Johana Budwig's famous anti-cancer protocol.
