Cactus Pears, Cactus Fruit, Prickly Pears

Prickly pears, also known as cactus pears or cactus fruit, are well worth adding to your diet whenever you can find them. I have consistently found that prickly pears are well digested, support healthy bowel movements, and offer protection against sunburn, most likely because of their abundance in richly pigmented antioxidants (betalain, betanin, and indicaxanthin).

Korean jello isn't sweet like most western dessert varieties. But yowsers, does it ever make for a silky smooth and healthy side dish to steaming bowls of rice and soup. To fully appreciate Korean jello, you have to drizzle on a blend of soy sauce, sesame oil, sesame seeds, and green onions. Add a pinch of chilli powder to the mix and you may just have a new favourite dish for family and friends.

Called doh toh ree mook in Korean, these lovely jello squares can be made with a few different primary ingredients, the healthiest of which are acorn powder and green bean powder - both are readily available in Korean grocery stores. No need to add gelatin - if you follow the instructions below, it will come out just like jello without sugar. Read more about How To Make Korean Jello

 

Korean Tofu Recipes

I think for most people, organic tofu is a healthy food choice. It's rich in healthy protein, and unlike flesh meats like beef, chicken, and pork, tofu doesn't tend to create inflammation in the body, which is why I generally recommend it to people with chronic, degenerative health challenges.

Soba

If you strive to avoid gluten-rich wheat noodles but find yourself missing the occasional bowl of pasta, you may find the perfect fix in soba noodles. Made mostly with buckwheat and long used in East Asian cuisine, soba noodles are very easy to prepare and are readily available in Asian markets and grocery stores in larger cities.

Most varieties of noodles that are low in or devoid of gluten require constant attention while boiling and leave a gooey mess of cooking water to deal with after. Not with soba. Three to four minutes and they're ready to go, and unlike grainy whole wheat pasta, soba noodles have a delightfully clean and smooth feel about them. Read more about Soba

This smoothie is an excellent choice for times when you're looking to cleanse and feel light but still need enough substance to propel you through a busy day.

Hemp seeds are an excellent source of plant protein, providing all essential amino acids that your body can't manufacture on its own. Hemp is also a rich source of essential fatty acids - both omega-3 and omega-6 - that support optimal functioning of your cardiovascular and nervous systems. Contrary to popular myth based on the common origin of hemp and marijuana, it's virtually impossible to test positive for marijuana use from eating a small amount of hemp seeds on a regular basis.

Roasted Cauliflower and Potato Soup - A Digestive Tonic

Making top notch soup doesn't require formal training or a pint of heavy cream.

To make soup that your family and friends will rave about, all you need are a handful of wholesome ingredients: two heads of cauliflower, a couple of Yukon gold potatoes, two shallots or a yellow onion, and a fresh bunch of any favorite herb.

As with most soups that include a healthy portion of cooked Yukon gold potatoes, I find that this soup is consistently helpful to those with an inflamed stomach or colon. Read more about Roasted Cauliflower and Potato Soup - A Digestive Tonic
