Welcome

Hello and welcome to the Medical Medium Blog articles: RECIPES. I'm so happy to have you here. Visit this blog anytime for inspiration and valuable insights on foods that will help you to heal and feel your best. Happy reading!

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

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 recipe is incredibly tasty and satisfying without any milk, cream, eggs or refined sugar, making it a great choice for anyone suffering with health symptoms or conditons. 

Cashews are high in protein and are a rich source of vitamin B-complex and essential minerals such as iron, selenium, and zinc. They are also packed with anti-cancer compounds called proanthocyanidins that have the ability to starve tumors and stop cancer cells from dividing. 

Cashews are highly beneficial for lowering blood pressure, preventing heart attacks, preventing gallstones, reducing the frequency of migraines, providing energy boosts, strengthening bones, and promoting healthy skin and hair. Cashews have a lower fat content than most other nuts and contain a high amount of oleic acid, which is a heart healthy monounsaturated fat that is great for the cardiovascular system.

Directions:

Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until very smooth and frothy, about 2-3 minutes. Divide between serving glasses and sprinkle cinnamon on top. Serve immediately.

Cinnamon is particularly good for helping diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, indi-gestion, flatulence, and arthritis. Cinnamon is known to help prevent and shorten the duration of the flu as well to eliminate congestion and mucus from the body. It is also very beneficial for lowering cholesterol and to help regulate blood sugar. It is known to help increase circulation and contains anti-clotting compounds, which makes it highly beneficial for helping to pre-vent strokes and coronary artery disease. Cinnamon helps to boost memory and cognitive function, just smelling cinnamon spice can help make you more alert and focused.

Spice Cake

Cashew icing (optional):

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9-inch brownie pan with non-stick parchment paper.

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

If you remember enjoying gingerbread as a child, this smoothie might just bring some of those memories back to life. It’s creamy and full of flavor. Enjoy this smoothie for breakfast, lunch, a snack, or even for an easy dinner. If you are following Liver Rescue Mornings from Liver Rescue, simply omit the almond milk and use water or coconut water. 

“Ginger: Helps calm spasms in the liver and regulate liver heat—it can heat up the liver, perking it up out of stagnation, or cool a very hot liver, balancing it out, depending on what’s needed. Helpful for a sluggish liver, stagnant liver, and dirty blood syndrome. Improves bile production and potency while improving the stomach’s production of hydrochloric acid. Also feeds the liver with dozens of phytochemical compounds that it can use for many of its chemical functions. 

Some of ginger’s phytochemical compounds expel ammonia and rotting, putrefying food, debris, and toxins from the small intestine and colon, allowing for cleaner nutrients to enter the liver from the intestinal tract. Ginger also dislodges fat cells inside the liver, allowing that fat to break free and exit through the bile and digestive tract, sometimes by way of the gallbladder.” - 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

Gingerbread Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder/alcohol free vanilla extract
  • 1-2 dates (optional)
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (or replace with coconut water or water for a fat-free smoothie)

Directions:

Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately. 

Serves 1-2

Dates are an ideal food for improved energy and brain function. They are a good source of vitamin A & B-complex and they are rich in minerals such as iron, calcium, manganese, and potassium.

They also help to control heart rate and blood pressure which offers protection against strokes and coronary heart diseases.
