Leatherjacket Fish Broth

Leatherjacket Fish Broth

When buying seafood, I always make sure that they tick my “clean seafood” criteria (i.e: not farmed, very low in mercury, not contaminated, high protein, healthy fats, minerals) hence farmed salmon (unfortunately, 85% of them in the market), tuna, kingfish, lobster, crab, shrimp, prawns, king mackerel, shark, tilapia don’t make it to my “clean seafood” list. A lot of shellfish are farmed so I only buy them if they are labelled “wild caught or organic”. Do you know that farmed prawns are fed with fish meal, fish oil and soy protein? What happens if the fish oil is rancid? Rancid fish oil creates inflammation in our body and the more inflammation we have, the higher chance of having cancer, Multiple sclerosis (MS), arthritis and other autoimmune diseases etc. Leatherjacket fish is one of the fish on my “clean seafood” list as it eats small fish and shrimp, not fish poop or waste in the ocean like prawns, shrimps, tilapia and catfish (bottom-feeding fish). Leatherjacket Nutritional Value 100 g Leatherjacket contains 16.2 g Protein, 2.4% Calcium, 2.4% Iron, 1.2% Vitamin A and 45.6 mg Sodium hence it’s excellent for people with anaemia, osteoporosis and low-energy. *Percent Daily Values are based on a 2000 calorie diet. Your daily values may be higher or lower depending on your calorie needs. Leatherjacket Fish Broth Ingredients 1.50 kg Leatherjacket fish, cleaned (Click here for How to choose fresh fish tips) a Spanish onion 4 inch of ginger 5 – 6 garlic cloves 2 sprigs of thyme 3 bay leaves 2 sprigs of rosemary a teaspoon of dried Tarragon 2 tablespoon Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar Organic  3...

Slippery Elm Porridge

Slippery Elm Porridge

Slippery Elm is a native South American tree and its inner bark has been using as medicine to treat cough, sore throat, colic, diarrhoea, constipation, hemorrhoids, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), bladder, urinary tract infections, syphilis, herpes, tapeworms, stomach and duodenal ulcers, colitis, diverticulitis, gastrointestinal inflammation and reflux. Slippery elm contains mucilage which adheres to the digestive lining and helps soothing the intestinal walls and inflammation. It also decreases the absorption of medications so it is best to have the porridge at least one hour after taking the medications. Slippery elm also can be added into smoothies or add a teaspoon to a glass of warm water and drink it 30 minutes before meals to soothe the inflammation in the gut. I always bring Slippery Elm with me whenever I travel and use it if I have food poisoning or some digestive issues especially after colonoscopy or endoscopy procedure. This Slippery Elm porridge might not be suitable for pregnancy and breastfeeding.

So, I thought to myself “Maybe I could introduce the raw diet to my friends by inviting them over for some raw high tea?”.

Coriander Pesto Recipe to Remove Heavy Metals

Coriander Pesto Recipe to Remove Heavy Metals

Coriander Pesto Recipe to Remove Heavy Metals (Mercury, Lead and Aluminium) I had an Haematology/Bolen’s Clot Retraction Test (CRT) done yesterday and the results showed that I have a slight Heavy Metal Toxicity. Maybe the heavy metal toxicity was from the amalgam dental filing that I had when I was a kid, eating tuna for more than 3 meals per week, or using the aluminium cookware/foil years ago? Who knows how, when or what caused it? I just did not want any of those heavy metals in my body. Some people believe that heavy metal toxicity is “a major cause of hormonal imbalances, cancer, thyroid problems, neurological disturbances, learning problems, depression, food allergies, parasites etc”. Others believe heavy metal doesn’t do any harm to your body. I am not going into details to explain whether heavy metals are good or bad for your body but this Coriander Pesto recipe is yummy! Well, it’s food and there is no harm of eating it everyday so whether you believe it removes the heavy metals or not, let the results speak for itself. For those who have heavy metal toxicity but do not like Coriander, you may try Bentonite (I use Hydrated Bentonite) or Zeolite but foods are always better! You will need to eat 2 tablespoons of this coriander pesto everyday for 3 weeks to remove the heavy metals. I tweaked this coriander chelation pesto recipe from yberaud9 a bit to give it a bit of kick. Coriander Pesto Recipe 6 garlic cloves (use 2 or 4 cloves if you don’t like garlic much) 1/3 cup Brazil nuts – a good source of...

Gluten Free & Dairy Free Carrot Pancakes

Gluten Free & Dairy Free Carrot Pancakes

I love pancakes but a lot of gluten free pancakes are dry and they are mostly made from white rice flour or maize flour which I am not fond of. I can’t remember all the things that I dreamt last night but I only vaguely remembered that I was looking for some ingredients to make the pancakes – something that add more moisture and textures to the “boring & dry” gluten free pancakes that I would normally have! And so, the gluten free, dairy free and sugar free carrot pancakes were born with a bit of creativity and a lot of tender loving care! I gotta say this is one of the best gluten free pancakes that I have ever made or eaten. I feel a lot more content knowing that I am eating the nutritious foods with a good source of fibre, omega 3 6, good fats, protein, vitamins and minerals. Gluten Free, Dairy Free & Sugar Free Carrot Pancakes Serving: 1                          Cooking Time: 15 minutes Ingredients: 1 organic carrot (1 cup chopped carrot) 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder 1 cup organic coconut cream 2 tablespoon of raw cold pressed organic coconut oil 2 tablespoons of black chia seeds 1 tablespoon of shredded coconut 1/2 cup of either organic brown rice flour, organic almond flour, organic quinoa flour, organic amaranth flour or organic buckwheat flour 1/2 cup organic Chickpea flour (Besan flour) 1 pinch of Himalayan salt 1 teaspoon of Aluminium free baking powder 1 organic egg (opt out if you are vegan) 1 tablespoon of organic dark Agave Nectar 1/4 of organic lemon...

After a couple years of eating raw foods and having cold breakfasts (i.e:fresh vegetable juice and fruit salads) every morning, I am kinda missing my warm and filling breakfast.
