In this recipe, the cucumbers are 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.
Radishes are another star ingredient in this recipe. They are a strong medicine for our livers. The pungent, biting nature of radishes comes from a compilation of chemical compounds, many of them undiscovered, that act as disinfectants to the liver, stopping pathogen infection and boosting the liver’s personalized immune system by increasing its white blood cells’ ability to fight and destroy invaders.
Veggie Spring Rolls
Make the sauce by putting all the sauce ingredients in a bowl and whisking until smooth and combined. Add water to reach desired consistency. Pour into a serving bowl and set aside.
To make the spring rolls, fill a bowl or pan big enough to fit the rice paper with warm water. Soak the rice paper in the water for about 30 seconds - until pliable but not soggy. Place the rice paper on a work surface and arrange the fillings on the 1/3 of the rice paper closest to you. Fold the left and right edges of the rice paper in, then starting from the bottom, roll up to cover the filling. Keep rolling firmly, the rice paper is sticky and will seal itself. Repeat with remaining ingredients. To serve, leave the rolls whole or cut them in half with a sharp knife. Sprinkle with sesame seeds (if using) and serve with the dipping sauce.
Serves: 2 people

Bring in the New Year with this lightly fizzy, refreshing Champagne Mocktail. The coconut water and lime juice not only gives this drink great flavor, but also offers critical hydration, glucose and minerals. Add the pomegranate seeds for a festive touch or skip them altogether.
Coconut water has the ability to hydrate the body on a deep, cellular level making it an essential beverage for athletes and those that live a busy, active life. It also has been shown to help balance pH levels, boost the immune system, and support kidneys in filtering toxins and reducing the risk of kidney stones. Coconut water is also highly beneficial for cardiovascular health as it can help to reduce blood pressure and increase healthy circulation. It is also a vitally important drink for those who are suffering with a chronic illness such as migraines, sinusitis, COPD, fibromyalgia, asthma, PCOS, cardiomyopathy, crohn's disease, epilepsy, hypertension, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, hypothyroidism, arthritis, lupus, and chronic fatigue syndrome.
The antioxidant flavonoids in limes are another ally in fighting disease. And when you’re dealing with a cold, flu, bronchitis, or pneumonia, lemon is one of the most effective mucus expellers you can find. Limes are also amazing cleansers of the liver, kidneys, spleen, thyroid, and gallbladder. They purge the many toxic substances we collect from exposure to plastics, synthetic chemicals, radiation, and poor food choices.
Combine the coconut water, sparkling water, lime juice and maple syrup in a jug. Mix well. Pour into champagne glasses and serve immediately with pomegranate seeds (if using) and lime slices.

These sweet and gooey Banana Cinnamon Rolls taste like a truly decadent treat. But the best part is that they don’t contain any gluten, dairy, refined sugar, or other problematic ingredients so you can enjoy them in abundance knowing they are truly good for you! You can make this recipe in an oven or dehydrator. Either way, they’ll be delicious!
The fructose in banana is the 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, anti-fungal 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.
Banana Cinnamon Rolls
Preheat oven to 250F (or use a food dehydrator). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Slices bananas into 3 vertical pieces and arrange on baking sheet. Bake for 2 hours in the oven or 3-4 hours at 115F in the dehydrator, until you can roll them without breaking them.
Make the date paste filling by combining dates, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, vanilla, salt and water in a food processor or blender and blending until smooth. Add a bit more water if needed. Set aside 1/2 cup for the date caramel.
Once the bananas are cooked, let them cool for 15 minutes. Flip the banana slices over, then coat one side of the banana with the paste and roll up into a cinnamon roll. To make bigger rolls, roll an additional banana slice onto the roll.
Place the cinnamon rolls back in the oven for 1.5 hours or in the dehydrator for 2-3 hours.
Make the date caramel by whisking together the separated date caramel, water and nut butter (if using) until you get a smooth sauce. Drizzle on top of the cinnamon buns and sprinkle on chopped walnuts (optional). Best served immediately.

Potatoes are 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.
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.

There are so many ways to make pancakes taste delicious, but these Apple Pie Pancakes might just become your favorite yet. Spiced apples piled high on a stack of perfect pancakes, all topped off with a drizzle of pure maple syrup—it doesn’t get much better! These pancakes are a perfect holiday themed treat or a great weekend breakfast or lunch for the whole family. They are free of eggs, dairy, and gluten and are low in fat, making them an indulgence you can feel good about.
Apples have wonderful anti-inflammatory properties and provide significant results for those suffering with autoimmune disorders such as Addison’s disease, Cardiomyopathy, Celiac disease, Lupus, and Multiple Sclerosis. Apples contain pectin, which is a gel-like fiber that can prevent the putrefaction of protein in the digestive tract. Pectin works like an intestinal broom to clean and sweep out debris from the colon. This is particularly beneficial for those who suffer from constipation or impactions.
Apple pectin has also been shown to bind with radioactive residues and toxic heavy metals such as lead and mercury and safely remove them from the body. One more benefit of apple pectin is that it has the ability to limit the amount of fat our adipose cells can absorb by building a barrier that naturally controls the buildup of fat in the body which makes it a great choice for any weight loss program.
Apple Pie Pancakes
For the Spiced Apples:
In a small bowl or jug, combine the almond milk and applesauce. Mix well and set aside.
Add the oat flour, coconut sugar, ground cinnamon, ground cardamom, ground nutmeg and baking powder to a medium-sized bowl and whisk to combine. Pour theapple sauce mixture into the flour and stir until you get an even batter. Add 1-2 tbsp more almond milk if needed - the batter should be thick but pourable. Set aside.
To make the spiced apples, combine the diced apples, lemon juice, ground cinnamon, ground cardamom, coconut sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Cook, uncovered, for 5-10 minutes, until the apples are cooked through.
While the apples are cooking, place a non-stick crepe or regular pan on medium-high heat and add a couple spoonfuls of pancake batter. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, until browned underneath, then flip. Repeat with rest of the batter.
Serve the pancakes immediately with spiced apples and a drizzle of maple syrup.
