Tired of being sick all the time?

I trust and value the information that Dr. Furhman provides in his books. His advice changed my life so I am biased however what initially struck me was the amount of references at the back of his book “Eat to Live”.

I recently devoured his latest book, “Super Immunity”.  I loved it.  I am always learning new information and his books reinforce my decision to eat a plant-based, whole foods diet.

It is amazing that we wouldn’t knowingly consume poisin or something toxic if it was under our kitchen sink but we’ll take it in the form of “medicine” if our trusted doctor prescribes it for us.

The more I read his book, the more grateful I was for having taken charge of my health because it is more and more obvious to me that I must make sure I am aware of what I am putting into my body and what the side effects are.  We might not think twice about popping something for a headache or something for a cold but are they really working?

This books covers flu and cold remedies in a great way.  I have always argued with my husband about the efficacy of the myriad of cold remedies he has purchased over the years for himself and once again Dr. Fuhrman has come through with great informaiton and references to studies that show what does and doesn’t work.

As a parent I am glad my children were very healthy and rarely needed medicine or antibiotics.  I am also very glad that I’ve been able to avoid antibiotics for the past 14 years.  There is even a link to antibiotic use and breast cancer!

I highly recommend any of Dr. Fuhrman’s books but this one is especially good if weight loss isn’t your focus.  If you have children then I highly recommend “Disease Proof Your Child”.

So, how should you eat to have super immunity?  It all boils down to GOMBBS-Greens, Onions, Mushrooms, Beans, Berries and Seeds.  You MUST start incorporating these into your diet more!

It is amazing that a single mushroom a day can prevent breast cancer by a huge amount! By having your diet based primarily on these foods you’re going to get healthy and lose weight as a wonderful side effect too!

If you frequently get sick then you must read this book.  You’ll feel so much better after you incorporate his advice into your eating plan.

I’d love to support you if you’re ready to dive in.  I’ve been eating this way for many years and I love sharing recipes and ideas with others.  Let me know if you’ve taken the plunge, got your big toe wet or are even considering it.

Below is a handy chart that highlights some of the most nutrient dense foods we should all aim to eat.

Mushrooms in Butter Chicken Sauce – Vegan

After reading an awesome book on immunity I knew I needed to make this recipe.  Mushrooms are a super food and can help prevent cancer.  I can’t wait to eat this for dinner tonight!

Funny enough before becoming a vegetarian I’d never eaten butter chicken so I can’t really say I crave butter chicken.  But I’ve eaten mushrooms in butter chicken sauce! While I love the flavour I don’t like the idea of eating all the oil and butter and cream in the restaurant versions since I aim to eat like a vegan.

Since I eat a plant-based, unprocessed diet I decided to come up with a recipe that uses no oil, salt or dairy and it tastes great!

Mushrooms in Vegan Butter Chicken Sauce
1 onion
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 small cloves of crushed garlic
a bag full of mushrooms, quartered
2 teaspoons ginger powder
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
2 teaspoons sweet chili sauce
2 teaspoons ground coriander
500 mL crushed tomatoes
1/2 cup plain rice milk
1/3 cup raw cashews

Finely chop the onion.

Heat a large saucepan or frying pan and add a bit of water. Add the onions and the cinnamon to the pan and water-sautee lightly.

When the onions are soft stir in the crushed garlic.  Add the mushrooms and cook until they are tender.

Add the ginger, garam masala, turmeric, chili and coriander, and sauté over  medium heat. The spices are “fried” first to release their flavor and this really enhances the dish.  Add the tomatoes. Mix thoroughly.

Cover and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes (you may need to add a little water).

Puree the cashews with the rice milk and add right at the end.

That’s it. I like this over steamed broccoli or kale.

Imagine how good this would be with chick peas instead of mushrooms?
