Jane’s Recipes

DSC_2602 - Version 2

My recipes are all original. Every one! Food should bring you energy, clarity and JOY! Perhaps my biggest discovery is how to make sweets that don’t elevate blood sugar or cause weight gain. We believe desserts are BAD for us (and most of them are)! However sweets can be HEALTHY! In an epidemic of sugar-related diseases like diabetes, heart disease and cancer, THIS is the solution: Use low-carb, original, unprocessed ingredients. There’s no need for deprivation. Here are some of my recipes. Try them and send me your comments!  Jane

Roasted Garlic, Aluminum-free

Toasting gives garlic a deep, rich, yet delicate flavor. Raw garlic is crunchy, pungent, and fiery. However once roasted, it transforms magically into a golden soft buttery spread. Roasted garlic is delicious on meats, veggies, breads, and it tastes divine in my Virus-Busting Garlic Soup! Roasting garlic is super-easy, and you don't need aluminum foil. BTW my kitchen is 100% aluminum free. Warning: Roasting garlic will fill your entire home with indescribably tantalizing and irresistible aromas that may uplift your mental state to pure joy and happiness! Garlic's healing powers have been known for millenniums, at least since biblical times. Its superfood ...

Detox Spinach Avocado Walnut Dip

This 5-minute dip is bursting with flavor and nutrients. Like a fresh pesto, it tastes zingy and alive. We can't measure LIFE FORCE in food. However we know instinctively that fresh alkaline foods have lots of healthy Qi, and processed foods do NOT. So garden-fresh foods are far higher in life force. This delicious spinach pesto is exploding with life! To make the dip, just put everything in the food processor, whiz, and it's ready in moments! I love crunchy chips, but these days I'm into colorful sliced veggies, ...

watercress-salad-3

Alkaline Watercress Salad

Today I found organic watercress at the local grocery! So I made this super-easy salad with all high-alkaline veggies, like cucumber, sprouts, kelp, and avocado. Watercress, with its pleasantly pungent flavor, is helpful in reversing acidity and purifying the blood. It has been used as a healing food for thousands of years. 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 minerals, more ...
