Fresh Broccoli and Veggie Egg Scramble

I just love broccoli and I went to the market today and there was some of the best broccoli I have seen in ages and so I had to invent this wonderful recipe to suit my taste.  It is so simple to do and will make you a complete meal in minutes.  I served my broccoli scramble with a piece of whole wheat dry toast.  It was a wonderful treat.

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups of chopped fresh broccoli
  • 1 small red pepper
  • 2 green onions
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • 2 small tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning
  • 1/2 cup cheese (I love herbal gouda mixed with mozarella and goat cheese)
  • 2 eggs
  • Non-stick spray

Directions:
  1. Put all the veggies in a food processor and pulse until you see a very fine mixture.  Spray Your skillet with non-stick spray and heat.
  2. Add in the two eggs and scrammble the egg yolks.  Then add in enough of the broccoli mixture to your liking along with 1/3 cup of more cheese, salt and pepper.  
  3. Keep stirring the egg mixture until the eggs are cooked and dry.  Place on a plate and serve with whole wheat toast and freshly squeezed orange juice.


Leftover Broccoli Mixture

I put the left over broccoli mixture in the freezer.  This makes a great pizza mixture. You simply put a very thin layer of the mixture on top of some pizza dough.  Sprinkle with some parmesan cheese and bake in a very hot 450 degree oven until done. This is a wonderful way to make a healthy pizza in a flash. 


Non-Alcoholic Holiday Eggnog



I have to say my biggest failing at the holidays is eggnog.  I just love the stuff and I could drink this entire pitcher in one sitting.  It is creamy, thick and it is just heaven.  While I wish I could tell you it is lo-cal or diet, I sure cannot.  So when you are making up this delicious eggnog, make sure you know what you are drinking.

Eggs each have 75 calories in them, 1 cup of milk has 167 calories, so 4 cups has 668 calories, whipping cream has 821 calories per cup of liquid and sugar has 387 calories for 1/2 cup.  

According to Fatsecret.com, 1 small 8 ounce cup of eggnog contains 343 calories and so when you are making up this wonderfully delicious eggnog, remember that one pitcher of eggnog has more calories than you your consume in the entire day.  Also eggnog has 19 grams of fat.
 
Ingredients: 
  •  6 eggs (separated) 
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 4 cup milk
  • ¼ t. salt
  • 2 cup whipping cream
  • 2 t. vanilla, nutmeg
Directions:
  1. Take your separated eggs and beat egg yolks until light.  Add in half of the sugar and then beat thoroughly.  
  2. You will need to scald the milk and stir slowly into the egg yolks.  Cook this mixture slowly over low heat until mixture coats metal spoon, stirring constantly.   
  3. Chill several hours before serving .  Add the salt to egg whites and beat until stiff, gradually adding in the remaining ¼ cup sugar.   
  4. Fold the egg whites into the egg custard mixture.  Whip the cream and fold into the egg custard mixture also.  
  5. Now add in the vanilla and chill for several hours.  To serve this wonderful eggnog, ladle into punch cups and sprinkle with nutmeg lightly.

Dr. Fuhrman's Cabbage Salad

Dr. Fuhrman is a known vegetarian and has recently published his cancer preventative program called G-Bombs.  In his G-Bombs diet there is heavy stress on beans and living a life free of animal products.  Here is his diet:

The G-Bomb Theory

Eating healthy does not mean loading up on organic fruits and vegetables.  It does mean that you must look at the G-Bombs as Dr. Joel Fuhrman wrote about.  What are the G-Bombs?

G - Greens - Plant based greens necessary for a healthy diet.
B - Beans - Eat one cup of legumes a day for protein.
O - Onions - Raw onions and even onion juice proven beneficial.
M - Mushrooms - Lot of information on the health benefits here. (only cooked mushrooms)
B - Berries - Eat berries low in sugar as your fruit.  Avoid high glycemic fruits
S - Seeds - Seeds, especially flax and sesame which are high in lignans.

Dr. Fuhrman emphasizes that October Breast Awareness month must be Breast Cancer Prevention Month and that we should learn to change our dieting habits for life, not just during the cancer.

Holistic Cabbage Salad

Please also note that one man had cancer and his wife fed him a cabbage slaw everyday and he cured his cancer.  Cabbage has tons of vitamin C.

Read: Can Cabbage Slaw Really Shrink Cancer Tumors?

Here is what the woman reported: ""Also regarding my husband's prostrate cancer: His prostrate tumor seems to be shrinking since he started a raw fresh cabbage diet as well as juicing. I make fresh coleslaw daily for him. As he found a study of rats with prostate cancer whose cancer either shrunk or totally disappeared with raw cabbage in their diet!"

What benefits are in cabbage for Cancer?
Although cabbage is great for cancer prevention as proven by the 475 studies that has been done on this cruciferous vegetable, it also has more benefits.  It is known for its anti-inflammatory properties, it is an antioxidant and is rich in glucosinolates.

Cabbage is high in Vitamin C and contains more vitamin C than oranges. Eating cole slaw alone is not enough to cure cancer alone. It is part of a diet program that will aid in the eradication of this disease though.
