food as medicine.

The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.

– Thomas Edison

food is powerful.

THE FORK IS YOUR MOST POWERFUL TOOL TO CHANGE YOUR HEALTH AND THE PLANET;  FOOD IS THE MOST POWERFUL MEDICINE TO HEAL CHRONIC ILLNESS.

I have taken a huge blogging hiatus, but even if I haven’t been sharing recipes, it doesn’t mean I have stopped creating them and now I have a bunch of items to share!

Here is the main reason I have taken such a long break…meet Callen. Our 3rd boy was born in the middle of the summer.  Because I suffered post-partum anxiety after the birth of our first two sons, I decided this time around to clear extra stuff off my plate so that I could spend some extra time, just bonding and enjoying life with three little boys. Here is Callen a few weeks ago on his 6 month birthday.

One thing that has definitely changed with the addition of another child and schedules that are becoming more full, is that I am trying to find ways to simplify dinner, but still keep them packed full of nutrients.  A while back, we had dinner with our old neighbors and they introduced us to one of their quick go-to meals.  At first they almost apologized for the simpleness, but we absolutely loved it.  It’s nothing ground-breaking, but it’s quick, it’s full of good fat and is another way to get my kids to eat cabbage.

Basically, we lightly cook shredded cabbage (with 1-2 TBSP of coconut oil, salt & pepper) on medium heat for about 10 minutes (we like ours to still be a little crunchy). And then we top it with a grilled grass-fed burger and 2 eggs.  half of us eat the eggs over easy and the others prefer eggs over hard.  Since we were introduced to this, we have literally had it at least once a week.  For me it’s a no-brainer when I am in a hurry because we have a stock of frozen grass-fed burgers in the freezer, always have eggs on hand and almost always have cabbage in our fridge.  For people that don’t love red meat, I bet a sausage patty or salmon patty would be an awesome substitute.  Bonus, is that it is a relatively cheap meal that we can feed and fill up growing boys on for less than $10.
