Food as medicine. Food also as tasty treat!

I started adding some of my Gerson recipes into the RecipeThing website. It allows me to easily add recipes and it tries to recognize the ingredients. After adding it on my weekly menu, it will provide a shopping list to take to the grocery store. It doesn't seem to be very well supported, but the site works well and there are thousands of recipes to choose from. And now, you can even find recipes that are approved on the Gerson Therapy.

My Gerson Recipes or All Gerson Recipes

This link will have a permanent home under the quick reference section of this blog. If you have more recipe ideas, either send them my way or add them to the site yourself under the Gerson category.

Here is one recipe in particular that I wanted to share. This is a cake recipe that we had the other evening. It is actually quite good. Theresa had commented that this would be a great option for her girls' birthday cake. I couldn't agree more! Now we just need a Gerson approved recipe for a nice butter cream icing. I'm sure non Gerson go'er have some options there.

Oatmeal Apple Raisin Pear Cake

Ingredients
1 banana
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup apple sauce
1/2 cup oats, ground
1/2 cup oats, whole
1/2 pear

Directions
Mix all ingredients.
Place into baking dish.
Bake in oven at 350 for 35 minutes.

Coat baking dish with additional ground oats before placing batter to reduce burning.

Eating healthy doesn't mean you have eat bland foods. With a little imagination and preparation, you can create a great tasting healthy meal that the whole family can enjoy. The best part is that it will also help prevent degenerative disease and obesity.

I'm so glad to hear that you are enjoying the foods. It's nice that your mother is with you while you are there. I have really enjoyed following your postings and I'm cheering for you every step of the way. It is so generous of you to use your energy to share the journey with us. You have a wonderful attitude and even though there will be some days that will be difficult, it will be worth it. I pray you will be healed!
