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!

Who doesn’t love tacos? The lentil filling for these romaine lettuce tacos can be enjoyed warm or cold according to your preference. If you’re looking for something a little heartier, feel free to try corn-free, gluten free tortillas instead. For an extra kick, this recipe would pair well with the Spicy Lime “Vinaigrette” on page 388 or even the Mint Tahini Sauce on page 390 of my book Liver Rescue

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

Onions (and scallions): Very similar to garlic, onions have antimicrobial sulfur compounds that expel unfriendly pathogens from the liver. Onions have a disinfecting quality for the liver, keeping it from becoming inflamed. They also improve the temperature control or “thermostat” of the liver so it can heat and cool itself properly.

Leafy greens (especially lettuces and their stems): An extremely cleansing tool for your liver that you can apply on a daily basis. The leafy outer greens of lettuce provide dozens of micronutrients for the liver to stay healthy and balanced, while the core of the lettuce, down closer to the root, provides milky chemical compounds that act as a purging mechanism for it. When leafy greens are eaten with fruit, their medicinal qualities increase twofold.

Mushrooms: Contain hundreds of undiscovered phytochemical compounds, many of which are detoxifying for the liver without hurting it. Mushrooms are medicine for the liver. Many people fear mushrooms because they believe that their status as a type of fungus means they feed fungus within the body. It’s just the opposite. A mushroom is a fungus that destroys fungus, and the liver accepts mushrooms as allies—if the liver is dealing with unwanted microorganisms such as fungus, mushrooms are very helpful in pushing them out of the liver. Mushrooms also reduce fungus, bacteria, and viruses in the intestinal tract, allowing for cleaner nutrients and cleaner blood to arrive in the liver.

Lentil Tacos 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup diced onion 
  • ½ cup vegetable broth (see Tips) 
  • 1 cup diced mushrooms (optional) 
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced 
  • 3 cups cooked lentils (see Tips) 
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning 
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder 
  • 1 teaspoon cumin 
  • ½ teaspoon paprika 
  • ½ teaspoon chipotle powder 
  • ¼ teaspoon honey or maple syrup (optional) 
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt 
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne (optional) 
  • 2 heads romaine or butter lettuce

Directions:

Sauté the onion in 2 tablespoons of vegetable broth over medium-high heat for approximately 5 minutes until tender. Continue to add vegetable broth by the spoonful as needed to prevent sticking. 

Add the mushrooms, garlic, lentils, poultry seasoning, cumin, paprika, chipotle, honey, and sea salt to the sauté pan. If spiciness is desired, add the cayenne as well. 

Continue to cook everything over medium-high heat for 5 minutes or until the mushrooms are tender and cooked through. 

Serve the lentil mixture in individual romaine leaves as “taco shells” and top with any or all of the optional toppings.

Tips:

The Liver Rescue Broth found on page 368 can be used for this recipe, or you can use store-bought. As in the previous recipe, make sure it doesn’t contain canola oil, citric acid, natural flavors, or other sneaky additives. Water can also be substituted when vegetable broth is unavailable. 

Brown or green lentils work best for this recipe. Prepare 1 cup of dried lentils according to the directions on the packaging.

Makes 3 servings

These potato pancakes come out of the oven perfectly crispy and satisfying, and then they’re topped off with light, refreshing Cucumber Radish Salad that takes them over the top. Feel free to try other toppings. If you have hungry kids in your life, they may like to try their potato pancakes topped with mashed avocado or black beans!

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

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.

Radishes: 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.

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.

Potato Pancakes With Cucumber Radish Salad 

Ingredients:

  • 2 large russet potatoes, peeled and grated 
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder 
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt, divided 
  • 1 cucumber, thinly sliced 
  • 6 radishes, thinly sliced 
  • 2 teaspoons raw honey 
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice 
  • 1 tablespoon dill, minced 
  • ¼ cup chopped chives 
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper (optional)

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Combine the potatoes, arrowroot powder, and ¼ teaspoon sea salt in a mixing bowl and stir to combine. 

Line two baking trays with parchment paper. Drop the potatoes onto the parchment paper by the ¼ cup and shape them into circles approximately 3 inches in diameter, using your hands or a cookie cutter as a mold. Press them down until they are approximately ¼ inch thick. Bake the potato pancakes for 20 minutes. 

Remove them from the oven and flip the pancakes over by carefully grasping the edges of the parchment paper and flipping the entire sheet. If needed, peel any stuck potato pancakes carefully off the parchment paper and stick them back into the oven on the unlined baking trays for 5 minutes more. 

While the potato pancakes are baking, make the Cucumber Radish Salad by combining the sliced cucumber and radishes with the honey, lemon juice, dill, chives, remaining ¼ teaspoon of sea salt, and red pepper in a mixing bowl, tossing gently to combine. Serve the potato pancakes piping hot and garnished with Cucumber Radish Salad.

Chips and salsa make a classic snack food, and in this version, fruit chips and a flavorful mango salsa are a unique twist on the original. This recipe includes instructions to make either baked apple chips or raw dehydrated pineapple chips. Both are equally delicious.

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

Pineapple: Dissolves gallstones. Its highly acidic fruit acid and chemical compounds also enter into your liver easily, acting as brushing mechanisms and dispersing degreasing agents to clean up and drive out sticky, mucus-y debris, gunk, and byproduct that can build up inside the liver from a multitude of troublemakers. Pineapple can be astringent, so I prefer the bottom two-thirds for the sweetest, most balanced part of the fruit. Even if you ripen it on its side, it’s the bottom that’s best. If the astringency doesn’t bother you, you can eat the whole thing.

Mangoes: Cool a toxic, overheated liver, soothing and calming it to prevent the organ from going into spasm. The yellow-to-orange pigment in mangoes feeds liver lobules and strengthens hepatocytes and Kupffer cells, allowing them to do the jobs they need to do. Mangoes also have a unique phytochemical compound that helps the liver’s immune system destroy the pockets of bacteria that create liver abscesses. Help prevent your liver from aging and cells from dying while improving bile production.

Pineapple & Apple Chips With Spicy Mango Salsa 

Ingredients:

  • 4 red apples or 1 pineapple 
  • 2 cups diced mango 
  • ½ cup diced red bell pepper 
  • ¼ cup diced red onion 
  • ¼ cup finely chopped cilantro 
  • ¼ cup finely chopped basil 
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice 
  • 1 garlic clove, minced 
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder 
  • ½ tablespoon minced ripe jalapeño (optional)

Directions:

To make baked apple chips, preheat the oven to 200°F. Thinly slice the apples into rounds no more than ¼ inch thick and arrange the slices on two baking trays lined with parchment paper. Bake the apple slices for 2 hours and then remove from the oven. The apple chips will continue to crisp up as they cool. 

To make raw pineapple chips, slice a pineapple into rounds no more than ¼ inch thick and arrange on two dehydrator trays. (Remember: use the sweet bottom 2/3 of the pineapple if you have a sensitive stomach.) Dehydrate at 105°F for approximately 16 hours. The time needed will vary based on how thickly the pineapple is sliced and how humid the environment is. 

To make the salsa, combine the mango, red bell pepper, red onion, cilantro, basil, lime juice, garlic clove, and chili powder in a medium bowl and toss to combine. Stir in the jalapeño according to desired spiciness. Serve the salsa alongside the apple or pineapple chips and enjoy!

It’s hard to go past juicy apples encased in a warm, biscuit crust. Especially when the recipe is grain free, dairy free, and egg free, making it a much better choice than a traditional galette for those with a health symptom or condition. Feel free to stick to the recipe or add some additional fruits of your liking such as peaches, nectarines, or berries. 

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.

Rustic Apple Galette 

For the crust:

For the filling:

Directions:

Make the flax egg by mixing together the ground flaxseeds and water. Set aside.

In a food processor or bowl, combine the almond flour, tapioca flour, coconut sugar and sea salt. Process until combined. Add the coconut oil and flax egg and mix again, adding in the water bit by bit until the dough comes together. You may not need all of it. If you’re mixing in a bowl, use your hands to bring the dough together at the end. Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes. 

Preheat oven to 350F. Place a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet and dust lightly with almond flour. Roll the dough into a 3-5 mm thick circle and place the filling in the middle, leaving 2-inches around the edge empty. Gently fold the sides up, creasing the dough as you go. You can use the parchment paper if needed so it doesn’t break. Brush the dough with almond milk and bake for 35-45 minutes, until browned. Let cool for 10 minutes before cutting. Drizzle with maple syrup if needed. 

Serves: 4-6

Apple juice with warming spices is a delicious and classic combination. But did you know that all those fragrant spices have incredible healing benefits too? These Spiced Apple Juice Popsicles are a wonderful way to get these special foods into your children’s diet or simply to enjoy yourself. You can also enjoy this same recipe as a hot or cold apple cider too instead of making it into popsicles if you wish.

Apples provide living water to support the liver’s hydration capabilities, so it can store the water and then release it back into the bloodstream when dehydration or dirty blood syndrome occurs. The fruit acids in apples help cleanse the liver by dispersing toxic films that build up inside its storage banks. Apples starve out bacteria, yeast, mold, other funguses, and viruses from the intestinal tract and liver. Great for dissolving gallstones.

Apple Juice Popsicles 

Ingredients:

Directions:

Place the apple juice and spices in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Turn the heat off and let the flavors infuse until the liquid has cooled. Strain through a fine mesh sieve and stir in the raw honey. Pour into popsicle molds and set in the freezer overnight. 

Alternatively, combine all the ingredients and let the flavors infuse for 3 hours at room temperature. Strain through a fine mesh sieve and pour into popsicle molds a and set in the freezer overnight.

Servings: 6-8 popsicles

Baked apple roses are like apple pie filling without the crust, beautifully formed in cups and enjoyed warm right out of the oven. The filling is always the best part anyway, right?

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

Apples: Apples in themselves are miracles. They’re amazing for digestion: They collect and rid bacteria, parasites, viruses, and mold from the entire gut. They create a stable alkaline environment wherever needed. They also help heal diverticulitis and reduce inflammation in the stomach and intestinal tract. Apples are incredibly cleansing and healing for the gallbladder and liver. Not only do they detoxify, carefully extracting sediment from these organs; they also help dissolve gallstones.

Maple syrup: The combination of sugars and high mineral content quickly travels to the liver and becomes instant fuel of phytonutrient composition. It’s like an IV for the liver containing the best of both worlds: a vast array of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients (many of them still undiscovered) coupled with high-quality sugar on which the liver thrives.

Lemons: The rich calcium levels in lemons 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 clean up dirty blood syndrome, improve glucose absorption, and even protect the pancreas.

Baked Apple Roses 

Ingredients:

  • 4 red apples
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup, divided
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ¾ teaspoon cinnamon, divided

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400°F. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together 3 tablespoons of the maple syrup, the lemon juice, and ½ teaspoon of the cinnamon until combined.

Using a knife or mandolin, thinly slice the apples, and toss the slices in the maple syrup mixture until well coated.

Arrange the apple slices in 4 small ramekins. Divide the remaining 1 tablespoon of maple syrup over the tops of the ramekins.

Finish each one off with a dusting of extra cinnamon. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until the apples have softened and gently browned. Remove from the oven and enjoy while still warm!

Tip: This healing dessert can also be paired with the Banana Nice Cream recipe in Liver Rescue for an even more satisfying treat.

This creamy and delicious apple butter is the perfect versatile spread to eat with almost anything! Enjoy it alone or as a dip for apples, pears, bananas, celery, cucumbers, sweet potatoes or a healthy cracker of your choice. Or try spooning it onto fruit salad, a smoothie bowl, gluten free oatmeal or the wild blueberry pancakes on the Medical Medium blog. 

Never underestimate the power of an apple. This fruit’s anti-inflammatory properties make it a top pick when you’re faced with practically any illness. Encephalitis (brain inflammation), IBS (intestinal inflammation), and viral infection (which can result in nerve inflammation) are just a few conditions in which apples can play the critical nutritional role of calming your system by reducing viral and bacterial loads that create inflammation.

Apple Butter

Ingredients:

Directions:

Place all the ingredients in a slow cooker on very low heat and cook for about 10-12 hours, until dark and reduced. Transfer to a blender or blend until smooth using an immersion blender in the pot. If you would like the mixture thicker, transfer it to a pot and cook, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes to thickness of your liking. Let cool and store in jars in the fridge.

To cook without a slow-cooker, place all the ingredients in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over low heat and cook, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 hours, until dark and reduced. Transfer to a blender or blend until smooth using an immersion blender in the pot. If you would like the mixture thicker, transfer it to a pot and cook, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes to thickness of your liking. Let cool and store in jars in the fridge.

Makes approx 3 cups

This Apple Crisp recipe is a wonderful recipe to serve up at your next gathering with family or friends. Warm, comforting, sweet, and delicious, it’s delicious all on its own or served up with the banana or coconut ice cream recipes on my blog. 

Apples offer us not only physical benefits but also healing on a spiritual level. Apples teach us not to get burned by the frost of insensitivity from others. Unlike crops that risk damage from autumn temperatures, many apple varieties continue to grow and ripen through the cooler months, protected by their frost-resistant skin. When a cold front from a friend, lover, or colleague comes upon you, take heed from the apple and draw a protective shield around yourself until conditions improve.

Apple Crisp

Ingredients:

Filling:

  • 4 red apples, chopped
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest

Topping:

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325F. Place the diced apples in a 11x7 baking dish (or similar). Add the cinnamon, lemon juice and zest and mix well. 

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the oats, pecans, coconut, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, maple syrup and coconut oil. Mix well, then place on top of the diced apples. 

Place in the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, until the top is browned and the apples cooked through. Let sit for 10 minutes at room temperature before serving. 

Serves: 6-8
