Medical Medium Recipe Challenge – October 1- Spinach Soup over Cucumber Noodles

Hello October First!

And so begins The Medical medium October Recipe Challenge – where I will be making one medical medium recipe every day during the month of October!

Starting it off with a bang!

This is a recipe I have had and enjoyed before. You can find it in the first Medical Medium book “Secrets Behind Chronic and mystery Illness and How to Finally Heal”

Today I enjoyed Spinach Soup over Cucumber Noodles for my lunch.

Washing spinach we got locally

Ingredients used: Tomatos, spinach, oranges, celery, cilantro, cucumber, extra garlic, pepper and chipolte flakes for garnish

Spinach: Great source of bioavailble and assimiable protein. Holds precious and vital mineral salts, iodine, chromium, sulfer, magnesium, calcium, potassium, silica, manganese and more.

Tomato: Are the major dietary source of the antioxidant lycopene, which has been linked to many health benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease and cancer. They are also a great source of vitamin C, potassium, folate, and vitamin K.

Oranges: Properties in oranges help to fight off viruses, protect the body from radiation damage, and deactivate toxic heavy metals in the system. They are abundant in a form of bioactive calcium you cant get anywhere else.

Celery: One of the most powerful anti inflammatory foods. It starves unproductive bacteria, yeast, mod, fungus and viruses that are present in the body and flushes their toxins and debris out of the intestinal tract and liver. Consuming celery is the most powerful way to alkalize the gut. It also offers enzymes and coenzymes and it raises hyrochloric acid in the stomach so that food digests with ease and doesn’t putrefy. Celery improves kidney function and helps to restore the adrenals.

Cilantro: The go to herb for heavy metal detox and so much more.

Cucumber: Cucumbers are the most perfect hydrating food. They hydrate us at the deepest cellular level possible. Cucumber is great for lightening the load/burden off the liver and contain tons of critical nutrition such as b, a and c vitamins.

Garlic: Has been used medicinally since ancient times. Garlic is antiviral, antibacterial, anti fungal, anti parasitic and rich in the phytochemical allicin, a sulfur compound that prevents disease.

Lots of left overs for tomorrows lunch as well!

The taste of this is pretty smooth – I add extra garlic and seem to enjoy it with that extra zing. I rate it a solid 7.5 out of 10.

Have you tried this recipe yet??

I will be back for day 2 tomorrow 🙂

New Month New Challenge

Hello everyone!

Still feeling a little under the weather with a cold and cough but hey ho!Writing to you today because I have cooked up a new idea for the up coming month of October and I couldn’t be more excited!

Halloween bullet journal theme for October, monthly welcome cover page by @paperlemons

I felt great after the Medical Medium 3.6.9 liver cleanse and realize I really need to continually work on including a ton of fruits and veggies as a large part of my diet while striving to keep the fats low and Medical medium teaches us to do that with his wonderful books and recipes.

I have decided that for the month of October, however challenging it may be, that I am going to try one new recipe per day from my Medical Medium book collection. These recipes could be anything from breakfasts to snacks, lunch or dinner. Instead of sharing with you my weekly “what I eat posts” for the month of October instead, I will share with you each day what recipe I picked, how it tastes, how I rate it and what the benefits of the ingredients are healthwise.

So just to recap:

Why Am I doing this: To inspire myself to continually make fruits and veggies as a large part of my meals and nourishment for the days. To continue to reduce my A1C and balance my blood glucose levels naturally and to minimize my PCOS symptoms even further than I already have.

For How long: Every day in October

What I am i hoping to gain? Knowledge of new recipes that I can continually include in my healthy eating “bank”, continue to support healthy blood glucose balance and healthy weight loss, healthy hormone balance, keep the journey fresh, new and exciting as to not get bored.

Potential Pros: Knowledge of new recipes, nutrient dense, different fruits and veggies each day = more vitamins and minerals, healthier A1C, more energy, clear skin, weight loss, feel happier and more positive about my choices.

Potential Cons: Could get expensive getting the ingredients for a new recipe each day, time management, potential days where we will be outside of the home and travelling, not being able to find certain ingredients, more work as far as dishes/housework etc.

Can’t wait to share with you this challenge – feel free to follow along and join in too 🙂
