Veggie Scramble

breakfast May 09, 2020

I love breakfast. And I used to love eggs. But when I discovered what it does to the body, I knew I had to make a change. Still, this was easier said than done. Honestly, it was a process to move through this and the first time I made this dish, I wasn't sure how it would turn out. Since I did, this has been a Saturday morning special that I can run to easily. 

If you are new to eating vegan, I highly recommend you add some nutritional yeast to this dish. Personally, I think it tastes great on day one, but taste best on days 2 and 3 when the seasons to marinate a bit.

  • 1 block extra-firm tofu, drained
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch spinach
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced

  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric
  • 1tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1-2 medium-size sweet potatoes

Method

Drug Free Remedy for Constipation Relief

juicing Apr 09, 2020

Beets! Beets! 

Beets and I go way back! Every Sunday in my native country of Jamaica, we would drink beet and carrot juice mixed with condensed milk and nutmeg! It was like a ritual or at least it felt like it. 

As soon as I became an adult, I no longer even tasted much less drink beets. I rarely ate carrots until I found out that I was allergic to dairy.

I wasn't just allergic to dairy, but wheat, corn and a bunch of other stuff that were now the main staples in my diet. 

Fast forward and one day after I first because a raw vegan, I drank a-lot of beets and discovered that my poop was red. 

It totally freaked me out as I had no idea a veggie could be that powerful and so quickly.

Then I had my first baby via C-section and needed to get the saline out of my blood in a hurry... The doctors told me the anesthesia would make me constipated, so I thought to myself, 

"Thanks for the heads up, but no thank you" 

I came home and started juicing!

Since then...
