Satisfying Meals & Supplement # 2
I know, I know, I keep talking about it. But the reality is that if you prepare satisfying meals, you can easily keep your ingredients in check, and STILL put a delicious meal on the dinner table in line with your specific life style choices and goals.
Here’s last night’s dinner:
Shrimp, Caulliflower with onions and peppers. And a cucumber, tomato and sweet onion salad, sprinkled with queso fresco. Lemon juice and olive oil dressing.
Get creative, many ways to prep a simple meal like this. 1 hour prior to cooking toss your shrimp with a bit of olive oil, garlic salt and chili powder. After an hour, you can saute them up quickly in a pan. Don’t over cook them. I had the grill going, so I just put a piece of tin foil on the grill, and prepared them on the grill on the tin foil. While the fire was getting hotter and hotter, I also put one whole caulliflower on there with a bit of olive oil, garlic salt and chili powder. Closed the lid, and let the cauliflower cook a bit and absorb some grill flavors.When I put the shrimp on, I chopped my cauliflower into crumbles and after sauteeing onions and peppers added the cauliflower and a pat of butter. Sprinkled the dish before serving with some cut scallion and a small sprinkle of good parmesan cheese. For all strict paleo/primal readers, the dairy (queso fresco and parmesan)is so minimal, but adds huge flavor and more important, “good taste” that satisfies. Aged cheese should be a part of your diet if you can handle the dairy. It’s really like a “traditoinal European fermented food”. (K2 source also)
People that don’t think they like cauliflower, will gladly devour the above with you, from my experience
I didn’t get any comments on my last post, but does anyone take Maca Powder?
So today for the next supplement we take here at the Casa of Love is:
Raw Organic Apricot Kernels
Without getting too technical (and I want you to do some of your own homework, and get familiar), Years ago there was all this crazy hype (late 70′s even) that raw bitter apricot kernels could be a treatment for cancer as the compounds SEEM to act as powerful cancer cell inhibitors. High levels of laetrile (vitamin B17), have been proven to inhibit tumor growth. There is even a good amount of evidence to support that when laetrile comes into contact with an enzyme called beta-glucosidase (which is only found in cancer cells), the laetrile is broken down, releasing “manufactured” hydrogen cyanide (HCN), which attacks the cancerous cell. Normal cells remain unaffected because of the mitochondrial enzyme rhodanase, which detoxifies the cyanide component. Cancer cells lack this enzyme.
