A favorite tasty treat for a snack or dessert. This Strawberry Banana bread is quick to whisk together, and then you can pop it in the oven and enjoy the inviting aromas that fill up your home while you wait for it to cook. This recipe is gluten, dairy and egg free, and also low in fat.

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. Bananas are a powerful antiviral food and contrary to popular belief, they are also 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.

Strawberry Banana Bread

Ingredients:
3 ripe bananas (yields about 1 1/2 cups mashed)
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp coconut sugar
1 tsp alcohol-free vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 1/2 cups gluten-free oat flour
1/2 tsp sea salt (optional)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup roughly chopped strawberries
2 whole strawberries, thinly sliced, for topping

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

Place the bananas in a bowl and mash with a fork or potato masher. 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 chopped strawberries and stir very gently, just enough to incorporate them.

Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake in the oven for 45-55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool completely before slicing.

Serves 4

They are also an excellent source of potassium, fiber, thiamine, beta carotene, folate, zeaxanthin, and lycopene and have been shown to help prevent blood clot formation and reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes.

Sun-dried tomatoes, which gives this recipe its rich, savory flavor are are packed with vitamins C, K, A, and B-complex, as well as potassium, chromium, biotin, and beta carotene. This amazing array of nutrition makes sun-dried tomatoes excellent for helping to nourish the adrenal glands, reduce stress damage, build the immune system, protect against skin damage, and improve cardiovascular health. Sun-dried tomatoes are also an excellent source of lycopene, a super-antioxidant, which is known to help prevent breast, pancreatic, intestinal, bladder, cervical, colorectal, lung, skin, endometrial, and prostate cancers.

The Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies I am sharing with you today are delicious and have none of the harmful ingredients often found in some store-bought kinds. The bright pop of raspberry jam nestled in a rich, nutty dough makes these gorgeous cookies a wonderful treat for yourself, to share with friends or family, or pack into your children's school lunchboxes. 

  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons almond flour

This simple fruit salad holds tremendous healing properties while also being a delight for the eyes and tastebuds. Enjoy this fruit salad for breakfast or a snack or make extra and serve it up to guests. Feel free to add other fresh fruits of your choice, too.

If you’re concerned about regulating blood sugar, turn to kiwis for support. Kiwis are an amazing food for diabetes, hypoglycemia, and hyper-glycemia. Whether your blood sugar levels are too low or too high, eating this fruit will bring you back to center as it simultaneously lowers fat in the bloodstream. Imbalanced blood sugar levels also often tie into moodiness, OCD, depression, and difficulty controlling emotions. Kiwis are the ultimate companion in these situations, because they offer a high-quality sugar source—that is, valuable bioavailable glucose to feed the neurons in your brain and alleviate your distress. Kiwis are an amazing food for stress assistance.

Festive Fruit Salad

Ingredients:
2 green kiwis, peeled and sliced
3 mandarin oranges, peeled and segmented
1 medium-sized banana, sliced
1/4 cup pomegranate seeds

Directions:
Add all the fruit to a bowl and mix well. Serve immediately.

Serves: 1

Lightly fizzy, sweet, and just the right amount of tart, this Cranberry Orange Mimosa is the perfect celebratory drink for New Year’s Day, a birthday party, wedding or engagement, or to serve at a brunch party with friends for an alcohol-free option.

“Oranges and tangerines: Provide a combination of calcium and vitamin C; when both are combined from the same food source, the liver can use both better than it could from separate sources. Another great fruit that allows for easy absorption and conversion of nutrients for your liver. While oranges and tangerines have a mild gallstone- dissolving capability, they have more of an ability to uproot and disperse sludge and sediment that can settle in the gallbladder after passing through the hepatic ducts from the liver.” - excerpt from Medical Medium Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease

Cranberry Orange Mimosa

Ingredients:
2 cups cranberry juice
2 cups freshly-squeezed orange juice
3-4 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
1 1/2 - 2 cups sparkling water
Fresh cranberries, to serve (optional)
Orange wedges, to serve (optional)
Rosemary, to serve (optional)

Directions:
In a medium-sized jug, add the cranberry juice, orange juice and maple syrup (if using). Stir until evenly mixed.

Serves 4

Pomegranates are a powerhouse healing food that can be added to all kinds of recipes to bring more nutrients and flavor. Pomegranate arils provide a fun and surprising burst of sweet juiciness as you crunch into them. They combine beautifully with the flavor and creaminess of the guacamole.

“Pomegranate is a great blood builder, as it strengthens both red and white cell counts. It serves an important role in blood sugar, too, by restoring precious glucose reserves to the liver, so that the liver can release this glucose into the bloodstream as needed. This process in turn protects the adrenal glands—because if you go for several hours without eating and your liver doesn’t have glucose reserves, then your adrenals are forced to pump hormones such as cortisol into your blood to keep you going, leading to overactive adrenal glands and eventual burnout. So if you’re looking for adrenal balance and blood sugar stabilization, turn to pomegranates. Pomegranates’ high-quality glucose also makes them a brain food, helping with focus and concentration.” – Excerpt from Life-Changing Foods.

Pomegranate Guacamole

Ingredients:
2 large or 3 small avocados
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tbsp finely chopped red or white onion
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
1-2 tsp fresh finely chopped jalapeño (optional)
Juice from 1/2 lime
1/4 cup pomegranate seeds, more to serve
Sea salt, to taste (optional)

Directions:
In a medium-sized bowl, add the pitted and peeled avocados. Mash using a potato masher or a fork until the guacamole is smooth but still has a few bigger chunks.

Add all the remaining ingredients and mix together gently with a spoon. Taste and adjust seasoning. Serve immediately or refrigerate until needed.

This delicious mulled wine recipe is free of alcohol but full of flavor. The spices bring a rich and robust complexity to this drink, while the grape juice, cranberry juice and maple syrup provide a sweet base to hold the flavors. Sip this delicious drink on holidays, in cold weather, or anytime you want a fun way to sneak in more healing foods.

While grapes are shunned for their high sugar content, we ought to think twice. That very sugar content in grapes helps revitalize the liver. They’re truly a longevity food, increasing the liver’s performance in every one of its over 2,000 chemical functions. The fruit acid unique to grapes is a great dissolver of gallstones— think about that the next time you eat some rather than worrying if there’s too much sugar or if they’ll make you gain weight. Weight gain is the last thing grapes create.

Alcohol-Free Mulled Wine

Ingredients:
2 cups red grape juice
3 cups cranberry juice
1/2 cup water
2 cinnamon sticks
2 Star anise
10 whole cloves
3 cardamom pods, slightly crushed
3 thick orange slices
2-3 tbsp maple syrup (optional)

Directions:
Add all ingredients to a medium-sized saucepan and simmer very gently for 30 minutes, until the flavors are infused. Remove from heat and cool for 10 minutes, then strain through a sieve and divide between mugs. Serve immediately.

Serves 2-3
