Looking for a sweet treat? It’s hard to beat this delicious, moist, flavor-packed Wild Blueberry Banana Bread. It’s perfect for an afternoon snack with a cup of your favorite herbal tea, or enjoy it after dinner for dessert. This recipe is not only gluten-free and dairy free; it’s also low in fat, especially if you skip the optional walnuts on top. You can make enough to freeze leftovers that you can store in individual slices in the freezer. Then when you want to enjoy a slice, simply let it defrost, heat it up in the oven and enjoy!

Two of the star ingredients in this recipe are the wild blueberries and bananas. Below is an excerpt from Liver Rescue that showcases just some of their healing properties.

Wild blueberries: Contain dozens of undiscovered antioxidants, including anthocyanin varieties. There’s not just one pigment inside a wild blueberry; there are dozens of pigments not yet researched or studied. The wild blueberry is to the liver as mother’s milk is to a baby. Not only do wild blueberries have the ability to grab on to plenty of troublemakers, they also hold on to them as they leave the liver, in a way that most other healing foods cannot. The pigments in wild blueberries have the ability to saturate deep into liver cells and cross cell walls and membranes inside the liver, spreading their blue everywhere. Wild blueberries enhance the intestinal tract, feeding good bacteria there, which benefits the liver greatly.

Bananas: The fructose in banana is liver’s favorite source of food. It provides quick fuel to the liver and wakes up sleepy cells, increasing their ingenuity and work output. Soothes the linings of the intestinal tract and also soothes the nerves attached to the intestinal tract. Contrary to popular belief, bananas are one of the most antibacterial, anti-yeast, antifungal foods. A great food to combine with other nutrient-rich foods or to take with supplements, because they improve the liver’s ability to absorb nutrients.

Wild Blueberry Banana Bread

Ingredients:
3 ripe bananas
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1 tsp alcohol-free vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 cups gluten-free oat flour
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup frozen wild blueberries
Chopped walnuts, for topping (optional)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9x5 loaf pan with parchment paper.

Place the bananas in a bowl and mash with a fork. Add the maple syrup, coconut sugar, vanilla extract and almond milk. Mix well.

In another bowl, combine the oat flour, sea salt, baking powder and baking soda. Whisk until lump free. Add the wet ingredients and fold gently until you get a uniform batter. Add the blueberries and stir very gently, just enough to incorporate them.

Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake in the oven for 40 minutes. After this, turn the oven off but leave the banana bread in the oven for 10 more minutes. Remove from the oven and cool completely before slicing.

Serves 4

Love sweet potatoes? Here’s one more fun way to enjoy them! Whether you like to use tortillas to make wraps, tacos, pizzas, quesadillas, sandwiches, nachos or any other favorite meal, a good tortilla recipe is the foundation. In this recipe, sweet potato comes together along with cassava, chickpea, and arrowroot flour to make flexible, pretty, orange-hued tortillas that also taste great!

Sweet potatoes are one of the best anti-cancer foods and can particularly help to prevent breast, colon, lung, skin, and oral cancers. Sweet potatoes are known for being easy to digest and are very good for ulcers, inflamed colons, digestive disorders, and constipation. Sweet potatoes contain compounds called phytochelatins that can bind to heavy metals such as lead, mercury, copper, & cadmium and safely remove them through the body.

Sweet Potato Tortillas

Ingredients:
2 medium-sized sweet potatoes, peeled and diced (yields 1 cup mashed)
1 1/2 cup cassava flour, more if needed
1 tbsp arrowroot flour
1/2 cup chickpea flour
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 - 1 tbsp warm water, if needed

Directions:
Place the sweet potatoes in. Cover with a lid and steam for 10-15 minutes, until tender. Remove and cool.

Place the sweet potatoes in a food processor and blend until smooth. Measure out 1 cup of sweet potato mash and leave the rest for another recipe.

Add the cup of sweet potato to a large bowl with the cassava flour, arrowroot flour, chickpea flour and sea salt. Using a potato masher, mash until you get a crumbly mixture. Set the potato masher aside and working with your hands, add water one tablespoon at a time while kneading. Depending on the moisture content of the flours and sweet potato mash you may not need to add any water at all. Knead the dough until it is smooth and uniform, about 3-5 minutes. The dough must not be sticky at all - if it is, add more cassava flour.

When ready, cut the dough into 4 even pieces. Working one piece at a time, roll each of them out between two sheets of parchment paper to 1/8 inch thick. Keep the remaining pieces in plastic wrap so that they don’t dry out. Remove the top sheet and place the lid of a saucepan (7 inches in diameter) on top. Circle around the lid with a knife to create a tortilla shape. Remove the excess dough.

Place a non-stick pan on medium-high heat. Flip the tortilla onto the pan and carefully remove the parchment paper right away. If you leave it for too long the paper might stick to the dough. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Repeat with rest of the dough. Best kept at room temperature in an air-tight container.

Makes 4-5 medium-sized tortillas

These Veggie Lasagna Cupcakes are a fun, bite-sized way to enjoy a traditional family favourite. Made with roasted potato and zucchini to replace the wheat pasta and a delicious, creamy cashew cheese to replace the regular dairy cheese, these cupcakes are free of pathogen-feeding foods. This is a great recipe to make with your family or to serve up to guests at your next gathering.

Zucchini is rich in poly-phenolic antioxidants which are essential in helping to protect the body from aging, illness, and disease. Zucchini is also a good source of potassium, which is an important intra-cellular electrolyte that helps to maintain fluid balance and normalize blood pressure and is vital in helping to prevent heart attacks and stroke.

Potatoes contain an antioxidant called quercetin, which has anti-cancer and cardio-protective properties as well as a storage protein called patatin, which has been shown to exhibit activity against disease causing free radicals.

Veggie Lasagna Cupcakes

Ingredients:

Cashew Cheese:
1 cup cashews
½ cup water
½ lemon, juiced
1 tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp sea salt
½ medjool date

Tomato Sauce:
2 cups halved grape tomatoes
2 tsp maple syrup
¼ tsp sea salt
2 tsp olive oil
4 garlic cloves, unpeeled

For layering:
1 large zucchini
4 small Yukon gold potatoes, peeled

Directions:

1. Make the cashew cheese by blending all the ingredients together in a high-speed blender or food processor until smooth and creamy.

2. Place the grape tomatoes and unpeeled garlic cloves on a baking tray and roast at 400F for 15 minutes. Please the roasted tomatoes, garlic and other tomato sauce ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

3. Cut the zucchini and peeled potatoes into rounds.

4. Line a cupcake baking tray with cupcake case liners. Please a potato round at the bottom of each cupcake liner. Please a spoonful of tomato sauce on top of the potato round. Please a zucchini round on top of the tomato sauce and then a small spoonful of cashew cheese on top of the zucchini. Then add a potato round, another spoon of tomato sauce, another zucchini round, and a final spoon of cashew cheese.

5. Place the cupcakes in the oven at 400F for 30 minutes until golden on top. Serve and enjoy!

Ratatouille

Ratatouille is the perfect healthy comfort food that nourishes the body, mind, and soul. The warm veggies bubbling in a rich savory sauce make it a wonderful meal that is enjoyed by family and friends alike. It pairs well with soup, salad, cauliflower rice, quinoa, or any veggie side dish. Ratatouille also freezes well which means you can cook in advance and have it on hand for any last minute dinner needs.

In Liver Rescue, I share how each of these ingredients can support you and your loved ones in healing. Let’s take a look…

Zucchini: Very similar to cucumber in certain ways, as it is also a fruit that’s helpful for liver hydration, which allows the liver to store micro pockets of water that it can later release back into the bloodstream during moments of chronic dehydration in your life. Zucchini have a mild liver purging effect, allowing the liver to squeeze out poisonous troublemakers safely. It’s also soothing to the intestinal tract walls, pushing out pathogens such as bacteria and fungus, allowing for better absorption of nutrients that can be sent up to the liver. Zucchini is a beneficial gallbladder food, containing phytochemicals that actually reduce gallbladder inflammation.

Eggplant: Often shunned due to confused belief systems about nightshades, eggplant is more worthy than we are led to believe. It can help us more than anyone knows; the only reason it’s avoided is because we don’t understand it. In truth, eggplant has small quantities of an undiscovered astringent phytochemical that improves blood flow to the liver, allows oxygen to be maximized inside the liver, and helps prevent all manner of disease. Eggplant also has phytochemical compounds that bind onto vitamin C, making it more bioavailable to the liver and the liver’s personalized immune system. Eggplant thins out dirty blood filled with fats and poisons, which can help stop blood clots from occurring inside our veins and eases the heart, too, allowing it to not overwork as it pumps.

Ratatouille

Ingredients:
1 large zucchini
1 large yellow squash
1 eggplant
1 red bell pepper
4 cups cooked quinoa (optional)

TOMATO SAUCE
4 tomatoes, roughly diced
1 yellow onion, roughly diced
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons tomato paste (see Tips)
½ teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon dried basil
½ teaspoon poultry seasoning
¹⁄8 teaspoon curry powder

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Thinly slice the zucchini, yellow squash, eggplant, and red bell pepper into rounds. Set aside.

To make the tomato sauce, combine its ingredients in a saucepan over high heat. Stir frequently for 2 to 3 minutes until the tomatoes have released their juices. Reduce heat to a simmer and continue stirring occasionally for 15 to 20 minutes until the tomatoes have started to break down. Using an immersion blender, puree the tomatoes until a chunky sauce forms. Alternatively, you can use a standing blender for this step by pulse blending and leaving an opening at the top to allow the steam to escape.

Place a cup of the tomato sauce in the bottom of a baking dish and spread it to coat the bottom. Layer the zucchini, yellow squash, eggplant, and red bell pepper slices in whatever pattern is desired. Cover the baking dish with parchment paper and place in the oven for 45 to 60 minutes, until the vegetables are tender. Serve the ratatouille topped with the remaining tomato sauce, over a bed of quinoa if desired.

Tips:

*This tomato sauce freezes well and can be kept on hand for quick, easy meals anytime.

*If you use store-bought tomato paste, make sure it doesn’t contain citric acid.

*For an even faster version, roughly dice the zucchini, yellow squash, eggplant, and red bell pepper, mix in the tomato sauce, and cook everything in a baking dish for 40 to 60 minutes until all the vegetables are tender.

Mac & Cheese

Grow up eating Macaroni & Cheese? In this recipe, this childhood classic is dished up without the dairy, gluten or fat it normally contains but plenty of flavor making it a great option while healing the liver. Dig into a comforting bowl of this creamy pasta anytime you want to take a step back in time or for a simple meal that will please the family.

Potatoes have gotten a bad rap for far too long. As victims of the war on foods mistakenly categorized as “disease-producing,” potatoes have been blamed for ills they never caused. Potatoes are wrongly accused of contributing to obesity, diabetes, cancer, Candida overgrowth, and many other conditions, while in truth these miraculous tubers can reverse these illnesses. That’s right! Potatoes are actually good for people with diabetes, because they help stabilize blood sugar. The entire potato, inside and out, is valuable and beneficial for your health: potato plants draw some of the highest concentration of macro and trace minerals from the earth.

Carrots are a quick liver refueling source of glucose that’s attached to minerals and vitamins. When carrots are eaten raw, they’re higher in antiseptic phytochemical compounds that inhibit the growth of unfriendly microorganisms.

Mac & Cheese (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, & Fat-Free)

Ingredients:
12 oz gluten-free, corn-free elbow pasta
2 medium-sized potatoes, peeled and diced
1 medium-sized carrot, peeled and diced
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp sea salt, more to taste
1/2 cup water or vegetable stock
Black pepper, to taste

Directions:
Cook the pasta in boiling salted water until soft. Drain and set aside.

Place the diced potatoes and carrot in a steamer or colander set over a pan of boiling water. Cover with a lid or tight-fitting foil and steam for 10-15 minutes, until tender. Remove from heat.

Add the steamed potatoes and carrot to a blender along with the garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, oregano, turmeric, lemon juice, sea salt and water. Blend until smooth.

Place the cooked pasta in a large saucepan or pot and add the sauce. Heat until warmed through, about 3-5 minutes. Season with black pepper to taste before serving.

Lightly crispy, golden potatoes with a touch of rosemary and crushed garlic. Hungry, anyone? These wonderful smashed potatoes are easy to make and taste delicious. You can omit the olive oil if you wish for fat free smashed potatoes. Serve them with a big leafy green or chopped veggie salad like the Liver Rescue Salad recipe on the blog for a satisfying and tasty meal.

Did you know that potatoes are an incredibly healing food? As I share in Medical Medium Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease, “Potatoes are abundant in amino acids that specifically inhibit viral growth. Potatoes are high in glucose that provides substance to the liver, as it’s precisely what the liver relies on to keep strong. It also helps build up glycogen storage, the very resource that protects us against blood sugar problems, weight gain, fatty liver, and dirty blood syndrome. Potatoes keep the liver grounded and stable, giving us a good constitution. They’re also shunned for being a nightshade, when in truth they have the ability to reverse many varieties of chronic illness.”

Smashed Potatoes

Ingredients:
2 lb baby potatoes
1-2 tsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed or finely minced
1 tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
Sea salt, to taste
Chopped fresh parsley or chives, for garnish

Directions:
Preheat oven to 425F. Place the potatoes in steamer. Cover with a lid and steam for 15-25 minutes, until tender. Remove from heat and cool completely.

Arrange the potatoes on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Using the back of a spoon or a small glass, carefully smash the potatoes until flattened. Top with olive oil, garlic and rosemary.

Bake until the potatoes are browned and crisp, about 20-35 minutes. Serve immediately, garnished with fresh parsley or chives.

Serves 2-4

These two salad options are brimming with healing properties for your liver. They’re great for when you want a lighter meal, and they’re also perfect additions to a cooked meal such as the steamed vegetables from the Liver Rescue 3:6:9. You can customize each salad with any of the liver-healing foods from Liver Rescue so that you never get bored. If you try the fat-free Orange “Vinaigrette” Dressing, it is sure to become a staple in your kitchen. It’s flavorful, sweet, and satisfying for anyone to enjoy.

Spinach: The mineral salts in a spinach leaf and especially its stem helps the liver with its over 2,000 chemical functions. Not only is spinach filled with lots of vitamins and other nutrients; they’re nutrients that the liver can easily absorb. Spinach leaves release nutrients quickly into the intestinal tract, even when someone is experiencing weak hydrochloric acid or bile production levels. It massages the ileum, allowing for better B12 production, and helps the liver convert nutrients so the rest of the body can receive them once the liver releases them.

Asparagus: Provide a wealth of flavonoids, many of them undiscovered or unstudied, that are highly anti-inflammatory; they act as natural aspirin and soothe a hot, overburdened, struggling liver. The liver’s ability to cleanse increases greatly from this calming effect. Asparagus brings order to a chaotic, sick liver. The liver’s immune system strengthens instantly from asparagus. It increases bile production yet doesn’t allow the liver to overwork itself in producing bile. Helps dislodge fat cells, expelling them from the liver. Helps rejuvenate the liver’s deep, inner core. Asparagus is one of the most important liver healing foods. Consider putting it on the menu at least a few times a week.

Liver Rescue Salad

Ingredients:

OPTION A
3 cups chopped tomatoes
1 cucumber, sliced
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped cilantro (optional)
½ cup chopped parsley (optional)
½ cup chopped scallion (optional)
8 cups any variety of leafy greens (spinach, arugula, butter lettuce, etc.)
1 lemon, lime, or orange, juiced

OPTION B
2 cups thinly sliced red cabbage
1 cup diced carrot
1 cup diced asparagus
1 cup diced radish
2 cups diced apples
½ cup chopped cilantro
8 cups any variety of leafy greens (spinach, arugula, butter lettuce, etc.)
1 lemon, lime, or orange, juiced

OPTIONAL ORANGE “VINAIGRETTE” DRESSING
1 cup orange juice
1 garlic clove
1 tablespoon raw honey
¼ cup water
¹⁄8 teaspoon sea salt (optional)
¹⁄8 teaspoon cayenne (optional)

Directions:
Place the salad vegetables and the leafy greens of your choice in a bowl and mix together to form the base of the salad. Drizzle the fresh lemon, lime, or orange juice over top to taste.

Alternatively, make the Orange “Vinaigrette” by blending all of its ingredients until smoothly combined. Toss your salad in the straight citrus juice or Orange “Vinaigrette” Dressing until well mixed. If you’re sharing with another or saving some for later, divide the salad into two bowls. Enjoy!

The Liver Rescue Smoothie is a key recipe in Liver Rescue because it offers such powerful healing support for the liver, which makes it helpful for every kind of chronic illness and symptom. It’s also a central recipe in the Liver Rescue 3:6:9 Cleanse included in Liver Rescue.

The first smoothie option below is a fast, simple, antioxidant-rich tonic to add to your life for deep liver healing. The second smoothie option is a light, cheery alternative that brings together greens and fruit. If you’ve never thought of adding sprouts to your smoothie before, now is a perfect time to try it out. They’re powerful and mild, and they blend perfectly into this smooth, tropical treat.

In Liver Rescue, I share how each of the ingredients in this smoothie can support you and your loved ones in healing. Let’s take a look at each of the star ingredients…

Pitaya (also called dragon fruit): The red pigment in the red-fleshed variety of pitaya is a rejuvenator for your liver, bringing cells back to life. It helps your liver produce cells faster so regeneration of the liver can occur. It’s a fountain of youth fruit for the liver that slows down and stops liver aging by caring for its deep, inner core, which in most cases succumbs to disease if left neglected for too long. Look for packs of frozen red pitaya in the frozen section of the grocery store or online, or you may find it fresh in your area. If neither is available where you live, seek out pure pitaya powder.

Wild blueberries: Contain dozens of undiscovered antioxidants, including anthocyanin varieties. There’s not just one pigment inside a wild blueberry; there are dozens of pigments not yet researched or studied. The wild blueberry is to the liver as mother’s milk is to a baby. Not only do wild blueberries have the ability to grab on to plenty of troublemakers, they also hold on to them as they leave the liver, in a way that most other healing foods cannot. The pigments in wild blueberries have the ability to saturate deep into liver cells and cross cell walls and membranes inside the liver, spreading their blue everywhere. Wild blueberries enhance the intestinal tract, feeding good bacteria there, which benefits the liver greatly. Look for packs of frozen wild blueberries in the frozen section of the grocery store or online, or you may find it fresh in your area. If neither is available where you live, seek out pure wild blueberry powder.

Liver Rescue Smoothie

Ingredients:

OPTION A
2 bananas or ½ Maradol papaya, cubed
½ cup fresh, 1 packet frozen, or 2 tablespoons powdered red pitaya (dragon fruit)
2 cups fresh or frozen or 2 tablespoons powdered wild blueberries
½ cup water (optional)

OPTION B
1 banana or ¼ Maradol papaya, cubed
1 mango
½ cup fresh, 1 packet frozen, or 2 tablespoons powdered red pitaya (dragon fruit)
1 celery stalk
½ cup sprouts (any variety)
½ lime
½ cup water (optional)

Directions:
Combine all ingredients in the blender. Blend until smooth. If desired, stream in up to ½ cup of water until desired consistency is reached.

Makes 1-2 servings

Tips:
* If you don’t have access to the options for pitaya and/or wild blueberries, substitute blackberries, cultivated blueberries, or cherries.

*Try adding at least one frozen element to your smoothie. This ensures that your smoothie stays nice and cold!

This dish can be made with either raw or cooked cauliflower rice. While it may seem intimidating to think of making your own sushi rolls, it’s surprisingly easy. They don’t have to look perfect in order to taste great! The options for filling your sushi rolls are endless. Try incorporating fresh herbs like mint, basil, and cilantro for a fresh twist, or branch out into other liver-healing vegetables like radishes, asparagus, or sprouts. You can even incorporate cooked vegetables like sweet potatoes or any variety of squash.

Cauliflower: A nutrient rich vegetable that is excellent for supporting a strong immune system and optimum health. Cauliflower is incredibly high in vitamin C, K, and B-complex and minerals such as boron, calcium, molybdenum, and tryptophan. It is also a good source of high quality protein that is easily assimilated into the body. Cauliflower contains powerful anti-cancer compounds such as indole-3-carbinol and sulforaphane which are particularly beneficial for helping to prevent breast, cervical, ovarian, colon, stomach, and prostate cancers.

Cucumbers: Allies to the liver due to their ability to hydrate it. Your liver’s always in need of living water that’s filled with minerals and other nutrients, because your liver keeps your blood hydrated. It relies on sources such as cucumber for that living water. This minimizes dirty blood syndrome by helping reduce fats and toxins inside of dirty blood. Phytochemical compounds in cucumbers act as anti-inflammatories to the small intestines and colon. Cucumbers have a gentle blood-thinning ability, too, allowing for detox to occur naturally, without obstruction.

Cauliflower Sushi

Ingredients:
½ cauliflower
6 toasted nori sheets

OPTIONAL FILLINGS
1 cucumber, thinly sliced
1 carrot, thinly sliced
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 cup thinly sliced red cabbage
1 avocado, thinly sliced
½ cup water

THAI CHILI SAUCE
1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes
1 cup cold water or fresh squeezed orange juice
¼ cup sun-dried tomatoes
1 garlic clove
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons honey
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon minced Thai red chili or ripe jalapeño

Directions:
Cut the cauliflower into florets (it should yield approximately 6 cups of florets). Place the florets into a food processor and pulse until a rice-like texture forms. Place the cauliflower rice in a medium bowl and set to one side.

If you’d prefer to have cooked cauliflower rice, cook the processed cauliflower in a sauté pan over medium heat, stirring frequently for 5 to 7 minutes until tender. There is no need to add oil or water to the pan, as the cauliflower itself should remain moist enough to avoid sticking. When the cauliflower rice is tender, set it aside in a medium bowl to cool.

Place one sheet of nori on a cutting board. Scoop about ¾ cup of cauliflower rice onto the end of the nori sheet closest to you and spread it into an even layer covering the bottom half of the nori. Arrange the desired filling vegetables in the middle of the cauliflower rice.

Carefully lift the nori from the bottom edge close to you and begin rolling it tightly toward the top. Just before finishing the roll, dip your finger in the water or orange juice and run it along the top edge of the sheet. This will help the nori stick to itself as you complete your roll. Using a sharp knife, slice each sushi roll into even pieces.

To make the Thai Chili Sauce, blend the fresh tomatoes, water, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, lemon juice, honey, and red pepper flakes together with up to 1 tablespoon of minced Thai red chili or jalapeño according to desired spiciness.
