Grain Bowls!


I used to love cooking. As a teen, part of my responsibilities while working at a retirement home, was to cook food for all the residents. I loved making the dishes beautiful, tasty and satisfying! I loved seeing the residents revel in the delicious meals and sit back satisfied after their meal experience.

That love for cooking came with me when I got married and as I had children. However, after suffering with Lyme for so long and trying every type of diet under the sun to try and heal my body and help me feel whole again, coupled with having 4 picky children, being on a tight budget, trying to cook healthy for my family and then making a second meal for myself (outside of what I made for my family) that was free of dairy, gluten, corn, soy or sugar - and doing this for YEARS ...

I may have developed a bit of PTSD from all of that and my love for cooking completely left me. That desire and passion for cooking hadn't returned even years after overcoming my health issues and having mealtime be less stressful. As I make meals I still try to keep in mind what my kids will and won't eat and if it's packed in nutrients but the love for cooking hasn't been a part of the meal prep for years!

Until now...

After coming across a random book search, I came across something called "grain bowls". So I printed off some recipes (which I'll share down below - they're wonderful!), and purchased a few books, two of which are my favorite so far - my passion and love for cooking, nutritionally rich food, textures, colors, and, most importantly, flavors! - has returned!

I LOVE the Word of Wisdom or, what I call, the "Bible Diet". (I have a video I'll share with everyone about that soon.) And these grain bowls work very well for those wanting to follow those guidelines.

The "foundation" of these meals are grains (and sometimes beans) - whatever grains you'd like! I like to use brown rice, quinoa or millet. I like to use 2-3 different grains, separated as the foundation and then pile other great food on top!

There are NO rules for how this needs to be done. The options are endless! AND it works SO well for pulling together leftovers! Have some red peppers? Bake them in the oven, sprinkle on a bit of salt and add it to the bowl! Have some brussel sprouts that need to be used? Coat them in maple syrup and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes and add that to the dish!

I always like to add a bit of fermented food as part of the grain bowl. Did you know that Costco now sells RAW sauerkraut? (We need to get back into making our own but it's so nice to be able to buy some if you haven't made some recently).


I hope you've liked this post! And I hope you consider giving grain bowls a try!

  8. Irrespective of receiving daily oral or future injectable depot therapies, these require health care visits for medication and monitoring of safety and response. If patients are treated early enough, before a lot of immune system damage has occurred, life expectancy is close to normal, as long as they remain on successful treatment. However, when patients stop therapy, virus rebounds to high levels in most patients, sometimes associated with severe illness because i have gone through this and even an increased risk of death. The aim of “cure”is ongoing but i still do believe my government made millions of ARV drugs instead of finding a cure. for ongoing therapy and monitoring. ARV alone cannot cure HIV as among the cells that are infected are very long-living CD4 memory cells and possibly other cells that act as long-term reservoirs. HIV can hide in these cells without being detected by the body’s immune system. Therefore even when ART completely blocks subsequent rounds of infection of cells, reservoirs that have been infected before therapy initiation persist and from these reservoirs HIV rebounds if therapy is stopped. “Cure” could either mean an eradication cure, which means to completely rid the body of reservoir virus or a functional HIV cure, where HIV may remain in reservoir cells but rebound to high levels is prevented after therapy interruption.Dr Itua Herbal Medicine makes me believes there is a hope for people suffering from,Cancer,Hiv_ Aids,Herpes,Copd,Diabetes,Hepatitis,I read about him online how he cure Tasha and Tara so i contacted him on drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com even talked on whatsapps +2348149277967 believe me it was easy i drank his herbal medicine for two weeks and i was cured just like that isn't Dr Itua a wonder man?

  9. I am bold enough among many others to state that there is now a potent cure to this sickness but many are unaware of it. I discovered that I was infected with the virus 3 months ago, after a medical check-up. My doctor told me and I was shocked, confused and felt like my world has crumbled. I was dying slowly due to the announcement of my medical practitioner but he assured me that I could leave a normal life if I took my medications (as there was no medically known cure to Herpes). I went from churches to churches but soon found that my case needed urgent attention as I was growing lean due to fear of dying anytime soon. In a bid to look for a lasting solution to my predicament, I sought for solutions from the herbal world. I went online and searched for every powerful trado-medical practitioner that I could severe, cos I heard that the African Herbs had a cure to the Herpes syndrome. It was after a little time searching the web that I came across one Dr Itua(A powerful African Herbal Doctor), who offered to help me at a monetary fee. I had to comply as this was my final bus-stop to receiving a perfect healing. My last resolve was to take my life by myself, should this plan fail. At last it worked out well. He gave me some steps to follow and I meticulously carried out all his instructions. Last month, to be precise, I went back to the hospital to conduct another test and to my amazement, the results showed that negative,Dr Itua Can As Well Cure The Following Desease…Cancer,Hiv,Herpes,aLS,cOPD Hepatitis B,Liver Inflammatory,Diabetis,Fribroid, Dercum,Get Your Ex Back, You can free yourself of this Herpes virus by consulting this great African Herbal Doctor via this e-mail: drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com or call and whatsapp him on +2348149277967 He will help you and his herb medication is sure. he has the cure on all disease .You can talk to me on INSTAGRAM..tashamoore219....
