Rushed and on-the-go? With health issues, fast food is not a good option. Instead, here are quick and easy recipes that will help you heal rather than add to your ailments.

MY 2 SECOND RAW TACOS

 

(well it seems like two seconds)

TACOS HAVE BEEN A STAPLE MEAL IN MY PROCESS TO HEALING. THEY ALLOW UNLIMITED VARIETIES AND TASTE, WHILE STILL KEEPING THE BALANCE OF NUTRITION NEEDED. PLUS, WHO DOESN'T LOVE A GOOD TACO? I MEAN I LOVE FOOD BUT TACOS ARE AT THE TOP!!

THE PREMISE BEHIND THESE TACOS ARE A MEAL OF ALL (OR MOSTLY) RAW INGREDIENTS. RAW IS ESSENTIAL BECAUSE OF KEEPING ALL OF THE ENZYMES THAT ARE USUALLY LOST WHEN COOKING DOWN FOOD. 

TOTAL PREP TIME: 

8 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

Organic Corn Tortillas (3 ingredients: Corn, water, lime juice)

VEGGIES: 

(Always Organic) Black beans, chopped onion, cilantro, micro greens &/or sprouts, avocado, chopped living lettuce, garlic, saurkraut, tomatillo salsa

SPICES: 

Pepper, cayenne, turmeric

 

NUTRITION GAINED:

Adding organic raw ingredients to your lifestyle creates a much needed perfect pairing with your stomach and digestion. The enzymes you keep by not cooking the ingredients helps your gut become stronger. Simple as that. Less cooking= more nutrients= relief and aid to helping the belly.

A healthy blend of pre-biotics, pro-biotics and minimal harmful ingredients= a meal that's not only easily digestible but also easy for your body to absorb and disperse the vital nutrients to your other parts of your body... did somebody call for reinforcements? Help is on the way. 

COMMON THINGS WE AVOIDED:

Corn Tortillas- loaded with harmful binders, preservatives and added ingredients that hinder the proper digestion of everything else. Corn over wheat always. Gluten is an inflammation food and often times the wheat tortillas are very processed. Debated and just not worth it.

Stomach Soothing Sweet Bowl

Your stomach's upset. You fell off the wagon and now it's either flushing out or cramping somewhere in your abdomen. You're looking for relief. Here's a simple recipe designed to calm the stomach and restore order, so you can get back on track to healing. 

TOTAL COOK TIME: 

2-20 minutes (depending if quinoa is prepped)

RECIPE:

1/2 to 1 cup cooked quinoa (you'll want to use the quinoa prepared with water recipe. Quinoa Recipes)

1 sliced banana

1 tsp Cinnamon (honestly, I just sprinkle it on to my liking)

1 tbsp Slippery Elm Powder 

1 tbsp Raw organic honey

DRINK:

Water or some form of live probiotics. My choice is usually Kombucha in this situation. 

NUTRITION GAINED:

Slippery Elm is known to coat your digestive tract with a calming, healing film. Bananas contain natural pectin which helps sooth the stomach. Cinnamon is one of our super spices with anti-inflammation properties. Honey is known to help boost your immune system (which is taking a hit with this current situation). Kombucha (probiotics) is intended to help jumpstart the bacteria lost during this process. Mixing this blend together keeps the stomach from overworking and becoming further irritated, while building back the elements lost during the attack. 

COMMON THINGS WE AVOIDED:

Common irritants like; processed sugar, over-consumption and added preservatives/binders that further irritate the lining of your stomach and intestinal tract and join the forces of the already present invading elements. 


My Staple Stomach Soother Tea

I not only drink this tea often during the week, I also drink it when I'm at my weakest. The combination of ingredients are aimed to sooth the stomach and provide the right nutrients to start the building process again. If you don't like tea, I highly recommend you learn ways to love it. I hated tea when I started this process. Until I became enamored with the benefits it was providing. Now it's nice to have crafted a tea that provides taste and nutrition. 

TOTAL TIME: 

15-20 minutes

RECIPE:

1/4 cup thinly diced fresh Ginger root (MSC staple food)

1 tbsp Burdock root (optional. but I use it)

4-5 leaves of Mint

1/4 Lemon

1 tbsp Lavender (I either buy packets of lavender or use fresh lavender from my plant)

1/2 tsp Cinnamon

1 tsp Honey

HOW TO:

Bring 3 cups of purified water to boil (for more about water refer to our Clean Water episodes), add Ginger root and turn burner to simmer for 7-9 minutes. Turn off burner and add burdock root, mint and lavender. Let steep for 5-7 minutes. Strain mixture into mug and add lemon, cinnamon and honey.

NUTRITION GAINED:

A lot of what comes with the system flushing and abdominal pain is nausea. Luckily ginger not only helps sooth the lining in your gut but it provides relief from the awful nausea feeling commonly experienced with abdominal disorders. Burdock root contains healthy fiber that aids in cramping relief and inflammation. Mint adds great flavor and aids is soothing stomach inflammation. Lavender combats stomach pain and inflammation as well and adding cinnamon and honey to the mix will promote anti-inflammation and boost your immune system.

COMMON THINGS WE AVOIDED:

With keeping the ingredients as fresh as possible the vital nutrients contained in them are mostly retained. We've also avoided elements on what chemicals were used in making tea bags and have used water that eliminates ingesting unwanted treatment chemicals.
