OMG – Heavenly Carrot Soup!

On a trip to Paris years ago, I ordered a simple bowl of carrot soup, Potage Crécy, in a fine restaurant. The first bite was so delicious, I nearly fell out of my chair with joy. OMG - the taste of LOVE, velvety smooth with heavenly flavor and deeply nourishing. Amazed, I asked the waiter what was in it. He disappeared into the kitchen and returned with the chef, who politely said: "Madame, this is the easiest dish we make. It is simply carrots, butter, chicken broth, and heavy cream. But of course, it all depends on the broth." ...

Gong Fu Chicken with Fermented Natto Anti-viral

I call it Gong Fu Chicken, meaning Achievement of Man, which describes this sauce perfectly. A yummy superfood! It turns out the world's highest concentration of Vitamin K2, may also be an antidote for the spike protein.

OK, what is Natto?  Natto is a fermented soybean dish in Japan. It's a serious superfood and will boost your health to the moon. However, I need to warn you, the flavor is strange. Since it is very healthy and greatly needed in our time, I invented this recipe to "cover" the taste. But it will take most Westerners some time to develop a taste for Natto. See resource links below. ...
