The crispy outside coated in spices gives each bite a wonderful texture and an explosion of flavor. Enjoy alongside a fresh, leafy green salad or another salad of your choice.
“Potatoes: 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.” – Excerpt from Liver Rescue
Crispy Spanish Potatoes
Preheat oven to 400F.
Place the potatoes in steamer or colander set over a pan of boiling water. Cover with a lid and steam for 10-15 minutes, until almost tender. Remove and place in a large bowl. Set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together the tomato paste and aquafaba/water. Pour the mixture on top of the potatoes and mix until well covered. Add the optional brown rice flour, smoked paprika, cayenne, garlic powder and sea salt. Mix until evenly coated. Spread the potatoes in a single layer on a baking tray covered with parchment paper and roast in the oven for 25-30 minutes, stirring half-way, until crispy. If the potatoes aren’t crispy then leave them in a little longer.
When ready, serve the potatoes with a squeeze of lemon juice and freshly chopped parsley.

Get the incredible healing benefits of aloe vera in this sweet grape slushy. Refreshing and delicious, this slushy makes a wonderful light breakfast or snack. If you suffer with constipation, you might find the combination of grapes and aloe vera in this drink bring you welcome relief!
Grapes contain high amounts of powerful antioxidants known as bioflavonoids, resveratrol, and anthocyanins. These phytochemicals are anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-microbial, anti-aging, and anti-cancerous and provide protection against anemia, degenerative nerve diseases, heart disease, viral and fungal infections, Alzheimer’s, autoimmune disorders, and all forms of cancer. Grapes can also help provide relief from asthma, migraines, constipation, gastritis, chronic acidosis, indigestion, kidney disorders, fatigue, and vision problems.
Fresh aloe leaf gel binds onto toxic debris in the intestinal tract and carries it out of the colon during elimination. Aloe also reduces poisons and toxins in the intestinal tract so that they don’t travel up to the liver. It expels and diminishes ammonia inside the intestinal tract that otherwise seeps into the liver when food is putrefying due to low hydrochloric acid and bile production.
Aloe also works wonders for assimilation, circulation, and elimination. It is known to purify the blood, reduce inflammation, ease arthritis pain, prevent kidney stones, lower high cholesterol, prevent Candida, boost physical endurance, benefit cardiovascular health, and protect the body from oxidative stress. Aloe soothes ulcers, hemorrhoids, gastritis, diverticulitis, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, and other digestive disorders. Aloe provides recovery from fatigue and aids in muscle function as well as optimal utilization of several vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. It’s alkaline nature, helps to soothe acidosis and alkalinize the whole body.

Watermelon and lime are a match made in heaven in this frozen Italian treat. It’s vibrant and fun to eat making it perfect for kids and adults. The added bonus is the healing properties of the watermelon that makes up the base of this recipe.
“Melons: A powerful liver cleansing food because of melon’s ability to hydrate blood all on its own and help alleviate your liver’s overburdened state. The combination of melon’s unique living water content with its nutrient content allows the heart to work less; melons thin out dirty, toxic, fat-filled blood, allowing the heart to not overwork itself in pumping blood. This reduces some of the liver’s responsibility to protect the heart, which frees up the liver to focus on other important chemical functions that are needed in the moment. Melons also provide the liver with hydration to hold on to for when you’re in a drought, living a lifestyle of chronic dehydration. They flush toxins out of the intestinal tract with ease and rebuild hydrochloric acid reserves in the stomach. And because bile is not needed to break down and digest melon, the liver can work on restoring its bile tank.” – excerpt from Liver Rescue.
Add the watermelon, lime juice, lime zest and maple syrup/honey to a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour the mixture into a shallow glass or ceramic pan. Freeze for at least 2 hours, then start breaking up the ice crystals with a fork every 30 minutes until you get a crunchy, slushy-like texture.
Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the freezer until needed.

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. But a tortilla recipe without corn or wheat can be hard to find. In this recipe, the humble potato is the star along with cassava and chickpea flour. The result is tasty and flexible tortillas you can make again and again.
Potatoes aren’t only versatile, they’re also high in potassium and rich in vitamin B6, as well as a fantastic source of amino acids, especially lysine in its bioactive form. Lysine is a powerful weapon against cancers, liver disease, inflammation, and the viruses such as Epstein-Barr and shingles that are behind rheumatoid arthritis, joint pain, autoimmune disease, and more. Potatoes will be your allies if you’re looking to fight any chronic illness—to fend off liver disease, strengthen your kidneys, soothe your nerves and digestive tract, and reverse Crohn’s, colitis, IBS, or peptic ulcers.
Place the potatoes in steamer. Cover with lid and steam for 15-20 minutes, until tender. Remove and cool completely.
Place the potatoes in a food processor and blend until smooth. The mixture will be quite sticky. Measure out 1 cup of potato mash and leave the rest for another recipe.
Add the cup of mash to a large bowl with the cassava flour, chickpea flour, sea salt and herbs. Using a potato masher, mash until you get a crumbly mixture. Set the potato masher aside and working with your hands, add water a tablespoon at a time while kneading. Depending on the moisture content of the flours and 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.
Roll out each piece 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

This smoothie brings a healthy spin on the classic creamsicle. It's thick, creamy, refreshing, sweet and gives a bright pop of tangy flavor with the orange.
Oranges have been called a “perfect food” and contain an amazing array of healing vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients. They are high in vitamin C, vitamin A, B-complex vitamins, folate, beta carotene, lutein, and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron, and potassium. Oranges have been known to help prevent cancer, lower high blood pressure, fight off viral infections, relieve constipation, prevent kidney stones and macular degeneration. Oranges contain a significant amount of glutathione which is critical for healthy eye and lung function. Oranges are very good for respiratory problems such as asthma or bronchitis and cardiovascular issues such as hypertension and COPD.
Bananas are one of the most nutritional and healing fruits readily available today. They are 76% water and are packed with vitamins such as vitamins C and B6 and minerals such as potassium, copper, and manganese. This high water/nutrient ratio makes them a great electrolyte food perfect for busy moms, workout enthusiasts, and people on the go. Bananas are also an excellent “brain food” great for heavy thinkers and are known to help build strong muscles as well as strengthen the nervous system.
The coconut water will provide deep hydration and nourishment to your cells. The vanilla gives a wonderful ice cream flavor and its calming effects on the central nervous system will help you move through any stress you are facing over the day.
Orange Creamsicle Smoothie
Place coconut water in the blender. Blend with the oranges until smooth. Add the frozen and fresh bananas and vanilla and blend again until very smooth and creamy. If you use only fresh bananas instead of frozen the smoothie will still taste wonderful. It just won't be as creamy and dessert-like. Serve right away and enjoy!Read this post

All melons have incredible healing properties, including watermelon. Limes are also a star ingredient in this recipe. Discover some of the healing benefits of these special foods below.
Melons: A powerful liver- cleansing food because of melon’s ability to hydrate blood all on its own and help alleviate your liver’s overburdened state. The combination of melon’s unique living water content with its nutrient content allows the heart to work less; melons thin out dirty, toxic, fat-filled blood, allowing the heart to not overwork itself in pumping blood. This reduces some of the liver’s responsibility to protect the heart, which frees up the liver to focus on other important chemical functions that are needed in the moment. Melons also provide the liver with hydration to hold on to for when you’re in a drought, living a lifestyle of chronic dehydration. They flush toxins out of the intestinal tract with ease and rebuild hydrochloric acid reserves in the stomach. And because bile is not needed to break down and digest melon, the liver can work on restoring its bile tank.
Lemons and limes: Improve hydrochloric acid production as well as bile production and potency. Contain micro mineral salts that break down pathogens such as unproductive bacteria, mold, yeast, and fungus to help protect your liver’s immune system. The rich calcium levels in lemons and limes binds to the vitamin C within them, and both of these enter into the liver, where they waken a stagnant, sluggish, fatty liver, helping loosen and disperse fat cells. Lemons and limes clean up dirty blood syndrome, improve glucose absorption, and even protect the pancreas.
Arrange the watermelon fries on a plate or platter. Add the lime zest, juice, and chili powder. Serve immediately

A bowl of creamy pasta is usually a favorite for many, but that usually means cream, butter, milk and cheese. If you have a symptom or illness, or you’re trying to make better choices for your health, dairy products can be problematic and are best avoided. Thankfully, that doesn’t mean you need to give up your bowl of creamy pasta! Try this Fettuccine recipe made with a Cauliflower Alfredo sauce. It’s easy to make and delicious to eat! Serve it over fettuccine made with brown rice, lentils, peas, or chickpeas, or over zucchini or sweet potato noodles and enjoy!
Cauliflower is 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.
Cauliflower also contains a compound called Di-indolyl-methan (DIM) which has been shown to be effective in the treatment of the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and cervical dysplasia. Cauliflower also has excellent anti-inflammatory properties due to its omega-3 and vitamin K content and is an essential food for those trying to prevent chronic inflammation as in fibromyalgia, hepatitis, arthritis, cardiomyopathy, cystic fibrosis, IBS, and Alzheimer’s disease.
Cauliflower Alfredo Fettuccine
Place the cauliflower florets in a steamer over a pot of boiling water. Cover with a lid and steam for 5-10 minutes, until tender. Remove and set aside.
In a small pan, add the onion and cook for 2-3 minutes, until translucent. Add the garlic and cook for another 2 minutes.
