Pinto bean with sausage dish, combined with oxtail bone broth and some meat, egg, goat cheese, avocado dip, Greek style yogurt, quick kraut, lactofermented vegetables, fresh basil and hot sauce.
I keep the pinto bean mix in the fridge for quick meals like this. I made up this mix at least a month ago and keep it in the fridge. I use yogurt to keep it from spoiling. It tastes as fresh as the day I made it, if not better because it's lactofermented a bit as well.
Beans provide good fiber and protein. I believe they can be part of a low-carb diet when combined like this with other foods and vegetables. We need 20-30 grams of fiber per day to help keep the colon healthy. This can also help with weight control.
Everything needed to make kombucha.
Plus extra flavored teas for secondary ferment, including pumpkin spice, chamomile flowers, Ayurvedic tisli ginger lemon, and herbal spicy mint.
Sauteed onions, veggies, and liver in goose fat, topped with goat cheese and hot sauce, side of egg and lactofermented vegetables.
A very friendly ketogenic meal, low in carbs, high in fiber, and nutrient dense with many vitamins and minerals, plus delicious and satisfying.
Whip up a quick pizza in minutes by using sprouted grains you keep on hand in the fridge.
Add sausage, pizza sauce, shredded cheeses, pineapple, tomatoes, mushrooms, fresh basil or whatever are your favorite toppings.
Sprouted grains are easy to make but you need a decent grain mill and grains. Mill grains, put into mason jar with water and yogurt, sea salt. Let sit over night for grains to soak and remove phytates and release phosphorous and other nutrients from the germ.
It's essentially a hearty pancake batter. I like to add nuts like sunflower seeds, walnuts or other favorites as well. I use rye, organic wheat, millet, buckwheat, and steel cut oats for my grains.
Do not overfill the mason jar and make sure to leave about half the jar for room to expand, or it may overflow or blow off the lid.
2 cups grated cauliflower, 2 cups mozzarella cheese, 2 eggs.
Form into shape with hands (on parchment paper recommended).
Bake in oven at 410F for 15 minutes until crust is slightly browned and holds together.
Top with pizza sauce and favorite toppings. Finish baking at 375 F.
Great alternative to bread crust!
Sauteed and steamed cauliflower with turmeric and turmeric ghee, topped with melted mozzarella, homemade blue cheese yogurt dressing, sauerkraut (for live enzymes), sea salt, potassium chloride "No Salt", and fresh basil.
Cauliflower provides some great nutrients, including sulfur nutrients and is high in potassium.
Turmeric helps transport of sulfur in the body for detoxification. Sulfur compounds are known to help fight cancer. All the brassicas are known for this as well as good sources of potassium.
Potassium, an important electrolyte that needs to be balanced with sodium, magnesium and calcium, is often deficient and we need an estimated 4700 mg/daily per average adult.
This meal provides an estimated 1000mg of potassium!
Super Ghee from grass-fed cows, combined with a formula of turmeric, black pepper and ginger.
I listened to the founder of Pure Indian Foods, Sandeep Agarwal, at the 2016 WAPF conference talk about the health benefits of turmeric, including allegedly it's anti-cancer properties.
He believes it should be combined with ginger and black pepper as the three have synergistic properties with each other. And it should be combined with a natural fat to help absorb the nutrients. This formula sounds great to me. So I picked some up from Amazon. The daily dosage is 1 tsp. I put some in my bullet-proof coffee!

Turmeric can have some negative side effects, so do your own research and don't do too much.
Beef liver from local pasture raised heritage breed cattle. This provides super nutrients like no other food. It is recommended to get liver in the diet at least once a week to help provide extra super activators plus all the other vitamins and minerals that healthy liver provides. I pick up local liver for $4/lb.
I use plenty of vegetables with my pate.
Throw favorite veggies like carrots, sweet potatoes and onions in the pan with some traditional oil and saute for a few minutes until tender.
Add liver to the veggies and cook until the liver begins to bleed. Don't overcook liver to retain some of the vitamin B6. Add fresh ground pepper and other herbs/spices of your choice.
Add the chipotles and BBQ sauce and finish cooking a few more minutes.
Put ingredients into food processor. Add yogurt, blueberries, pear and/or pineapple. I also add a little cream or sour cream.
Add a dash of kombucha, kefir, apple cider vinegar. Plus shot of cognac, brandy or vodka (optional).
Process into paste. Pour into bowls or ramekins.
Melt butter and pour on top. Cover with plastic wrap and put in fridge. Enjoy in 2 or 3 days to let flavors blend. Put on sourdough or with organic corn chips.
Also great way to get liver into babies diet. Children need the growth factors.
Curry uses turmeric, which contains curcumin, which is considered a powerful anti-cancer agent. It also has some other powerful spices, like ginger, cinnamon, coriander, cumin, fenugreek, pepper, cardamon, cloves and nutmeg. All are supposed to have many digestive and healing properties. Plus it tastes great.
Making your own curry dish is easy. Pick up some organic curry, like the Safeway Organics brand. Or buy your own dried spices and make your own. Some powdered turmeric was recalled due to high lead content, so best to stick with organic.
Saute tomatoes, onions, garlic, fresh ginger and vegetables in traditional oil (no modern vegetable oils), like coconut, olive, avocado, lard or tallow on medium for a few minutes.
I also added zucchini using my zucchini pasta maker tool.
Next add sausage and let simmer a minute. Add coconut milk and turn to low. Add curry last and turn off heat. Stir it all together.
Soak your rice ahead of time for a few hours, then cook until tender at same time as preparing the curry. Top rice with curry combo. Delicious!
Throw sliced carrots, apples, tomatoes, fresh ginger into a bowl with water, kombucha or kefir or apple cider vinegar, and some sea salt.
Much healthier weight loss option than potato or corn chips!
Grilled corn on the cob, carrots, onions, sweet potatoes, potatoes until tender.
Seasoned with whatever I have on hand. I sometimes use herbs de provence or poultry seasoning, a little olive oil, sea salt. Plenty of butter for the corn!
Great way to feed a small group.
