A Recipe for Inflammation
Quote of the month:
“I’ve experienced several different healing methodologies over the years – but none of them will work unless you really want to heal.” – Lindsay Wagner
Last month we spoke about the third stage of dis-ease – irritation. This month, seeing as it’s summer, we’ll keep things a little more lighthearted.
Here’s a great summer recipe for Pad Thai (taken from the book Meals That Heal Inflammation); by the way, it’s also a great recipe for this heat!
1 medium zucchini
1 large carrot
1 green onion, chopped
1/2 cup shredded purple cabbage
1/2 cup cauliflower florets
1/2 cup radish or mung bean sprouts
2 tbsp tahini
2 tbsp almond butter
1 tbsp lime or lemon juice
2 tbsp tamari (wheat free)
1 tbsp raw honey
1/4 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp ginger root, grated
Grate carrots and zucchini in order to create noodles. Place them in a large mixing bowl and top with the vegetables. Whisk sauce ingredients in a bowl (sauce will be thick). Pour sauce over noodles and vegetables and toss.
