Testimony of the Day

This is the type of thing that makes me want to spread the word of health more!  Amazing results after one of our consults.

” Hi Maria,
It’s been about 6 months since I found your blog through Dr. Davis. What a great 6 months it’s been! I’m down 52.5 pounds. I was taking over 500 prescription and non-prescription pills a month for severe IBS, acid reflex, asthma, headaches etc. I had just turned 30 and was at my heaviest! I had been a long time “points” member, and was gaining weight while eating my whole grains and fruit by the pounds! Fruit doesn’t count as points you know!!! What a wake up call when I found your blog and became your client! I wanted to share some before and after pictures with you, although I am still a work in progress. Thanks again Maria, you have truly changed my life for the better.

FISH SAUCE

One staple that every cook should have in their fridge is Fish Sauce. It is a special ingredient that takes good food to amazing food. Fish Sauce, mushrooms and aged cheeses have something called “UMAMI.” Umami is a pleasant savory taste produced by glutamate and ribonucleotides, chemicals which occur naturally in many foods. Umami is subtle and not generally identified by people when they encounter it, but blends well with other tastes to intensify and enhance flavors; it plays an important role in making food taste delicious.

Red Boat brand is traditionally fermented, not with wheat like most others. This bottle will last you a LONG time – you only use a few drops per dish, it’s strong stuff!

“HEALTHIFIED” PEPPERS
2 TBS coconut oil or butter
1 pound thinly sliced grass fed sirloin steak strips
8 ounces sliced fresh mushrooms
6 green bell peppers
1 medium onion, sliced
6 slices provolone cheese
1(14 ounce) can beef broth
1/2 tsp Celtic sea salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp fish sauce (optional: for “umami”)
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 cup prepared horseradish (optional)
1/2 cup brown mustard (optional)

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the beef, and cook until browned. Add the mushrooms and onion; cook and stir until starting to become tender, about 5 minutes. In a slow cooker, combine the beef broth, salt, pepper, fish sauce, and red pepper flakes. Transfer the beef and vegetables to the slow cooker, and stir to blend. Cover, and cook on High for 3 to 4 hours, until beef is extremely tender.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Drain the liquid from the slow cooker, and save for dipping. Cut the top of the Green Peppers off, to shape like a bowl. Mix together the horseradish and mustard; spread onto the inside of the pepper. Bake the pepper for 15 minutes or until slightly soft. Remove from oven. Place slices of provolone cheese on insides of the peppers, then fill with the beef and vegetables. Place back in the oven until cheese is melted and serve.

    My husband is on board with this one 🙂 Can’t wait to try it!

    Do you have any cheese options for those who cannot tolerate dairy…..I won’t use the vegan cheeses because most of them have casein in them and the Dairy has canola oil … blech. Option would be to just make it without the cheese I guess

    • cemmerich says:

      You could try a little nutritional yeast. Also, some people with dairy sensitivity can still have goat cheese. 🙂

  • Tracy says:

    Almond Cheese is really good. Personally I like the Cheddar or Hot Pepper flavor. It is Casein Free and Dairy Free! You’ll find it at your local co-op usually!
