What’s for dinner!? THIS. Can we just start with MSG FREE and fabulously healthy? NO need to order take out. Who doesn’t love fried rice!? One of the first things I teach in my coaching program is to stay away from what myself and Deedee Shaw (You will hear me refer to her often, as we team coach together) claim as “The FATAL Five” That’s fatal toxins commonly found in most foods on the shelves and in restaurants. They are toxic loads to your liver and are:
1.*MSG* 2.*High fructose corn syrup* 3.Nitrates and Nitrites* 4.*Artificial colors and sweeteners* and 5.*Hydrogenated oils.
So, let’s talk MSG for a minute. It makes things very tasty and is extremely toxic to the liver. What these toxins (and many more) do over time is they create a toxic load on the liver, so much so, that it creates health effects such as fatty liver disease, high cholesterol, difficulty releasing weight, and really, a plethora of other health ailments. MSG also triggers migraines, and is found in most Asian dishes as well as ranch dressings. Friends, let’s talk liver for a minute. Did you know your liver is the FAT BURNING FURNACE of your body? If I can encourage you to do ONE thing for your health, it’s to focus on what makes the liver function better because MANY health results will ensue from focusing on THAT. I will help you. Whether your goal is overall better health, or weight release, it MUST be about the liver. Let me give you an example – you could focus everything you have on working out and “diet”, yet completely missing the boat when it comes to results. Why? If your liver or endocrine system isn’t functioning right, weight release won’t happen, and health issues won’t resolve. READ LABELS. Don’t eat out at restaurants, or do so in a limited fashion, exercise, detox and eat RIGHT.
OH. A word about eggs: They do NOT lead to heart disease. Please friends, as a cardiac nurse, I’m here to tell you, that is garbage. The yolk contains half of the nutrients found in the egg and is healthy. What leads to heart disease is elevated triglycerides and cholesterol primarily CAUSED by high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated oils intake. HFCS elevates blood triglycerides, causes fatty liver disease, and creates inflammation in the coronary walls which leads to plaque accumulation from inflammation. Hydrogenated oils cause the liver to secrete more cholesterol on top of that. The moral of the story is to learn what to stay away from, learn how to READ LABELS, and food prep healthy food for the week so you will be prepared.
“Take the time it takes, and it will take less time.”
I will teach you how to food prep for success.
Here’s a little secret: Coconut oil makes EVERYTHING taste good. I SWEAR! It’s health benefits are giving to the body. Make it your addiction. It’s a good one.
I added to this skillet:
2 tbsp Coconut oil
2 c Snow peas
1 c English peas
1 C carrots – chopped
—–Saute until just softened—-
“Scoot” veggies over to the side and add:
4 Organic farm raised eggs. Cook sunny side up:)
Add 4 heaping (ice cream) scoops of organic cooked brown Basmati rice
After the eggs have cooked, add rice and stir all together until egg yolks cook slightly over the mixture. ENJOY. MSG and other horrible preservatives FREE!
*Feel free to replace sugar snaps with oven roasted broccoli and add more rice if you like. Store in a mason jar to enjoy all week long.
