Old-Fashioned Bali Fried Rice

Did you know that the original ancient rice in the world was red in color? We are experimenting with traditional Balinese recipes. This is old fashioned fried red rice called "nasi goreng merah" that was once common in Bali before the Portuguese and Dutch colonists. It was an eye-opening discovery that red rice has more then 5X more nutrients than white rice, because it has not been polished. That's because polished white rice is stripped of its rich outer layer of minerals and vitamins during ...

Hi-Protein Carrot Cake Goji Muffins

I created these muffins as a high-protein breakfast for my friend Marion who is diabetic. She asked for a high-protein breakfast muffin. These taste just like carrot cake, however they're extremely high in protein from pastured eggs, protein powder, and almond meal which is 27% protein! Like all my muffins these are low in carbs. Goji berries, also called wolfberries, are a nutritional powerhouse, and a respectable source of protein. Goji berries have been used to treat diabetes, hyper...

Rainbow Shaved Root Veggie Salad

Refreshing and alkalinizing, try this tangle of multicolored root vegetables - turnip, radishes, golden beet and carrots, tossed with basil, lemon-dill dressing.

Pumpkin seeds are especially high in protein and magnesium. Even better, they're the only seed that is alkaline-forming in the body. And that's a very ...

Watercress is especially high in anti-oxidants and Vitamin K (that’s the one most of us are lacking). Dr. Mercola says watercress contains over 15 essential vitamins and ...
