The past week, The Truth About Cancer Eastern Medicine: Journey Through Asia released a free online documentary. This 7-episode documentary explored the hidden world of Eastern Medicine and brings it to our Western World.

Ty Bollinger of The Truth About Cancer shared the “Hidden” Secrets Of Eastern Medicine. If you watched this powerful documentary, he had access to and interviewed several experts and they shared information that hasn’t been shared before. Each episode concentrated on one Asian country where they are having huge success in treating and beating cancer.

Basil Pesto Pasta

Last night I was craving basil pesto pasta for dinner.  When I was thinking of sharing my recipe, I thought to myself, “I don’t have a recipe because I just winged it.” I grabbed some basil leaves, some spinach, a couple romaine leaves, and some garlic cloves. I usually use basil and kale.

This reminded me of times that I’ve had friends ask me to share recipes with them. I was embarrassed.  I had to tell them that I didn’t have the recipe they wanted. I don’t usually follow a recipe when I cook.  Both my grandmother and father cooked delicious meals this way.  When they prepared meals, they added a little bit of this and a little bit of that into their dishes.  I remember when my cousin and I asked our grandmother for recipes to some of her yummy Chinese dishes, she would say, “I don’t have or follow a recipe(s).” We were disappointed.  Even today, we still don’t know her recipes.

This is my basil pesto pasta recipe.

 

Ingredients

1/2 cup Basil

1/2 cup Spinach (Kale or other greens optional)

2 leaves Romaine Lettuce

2 tbsp Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2-3 Garlic Cloves

Dash of Himalayan Pink Salt

 

Directions

Put ingredients in a food processor and process until it is desired consistency.

Put on top of cooked brown rice pasta and mix.

Add optional toppings.  I added already cooked ground turkey meatballs and broccoli.

Recap of the Healthy Living Festival in Photos

Here is a recap of the Annual Healthy Living Festival that takes place at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in San Diego County.  I am a little late, the event was a couple weeks ago, but I finally finished downloading all of my photos.  There were lots of vendors with great products, cooking demos, speakers, and yoga and qigong classes.  I even learned qigong.  Arctic Zero was one of the vendors.  I don’t have a photo of their booth: however, their products are awesome.  Their booth was always busy since they were giving away free samples of gluten-free, soy-free, and dairy-free, and low glycemic frozen desserts!

Enjoy browsing through the photos.
