A stir-fry is one of my favorite go-to dinners. It's quick and easy to make and you can change it up in infinite ways depending on what ingredients you have on hand. I like to throw in lots of vegetables and then whatever protein I have on hand: chicken, fish, grass-fed beef or cashew nuts. Last night I made a chicken stir-fry for my husband and I. I mixed up a quick sauce of ginger and peanut butter - but I could have just as well used almond or cashew butter - and the final result was quite delicious.
The truth is, my husband is the boss of salad dressings in our home. I pick & prep the salad ingredients, and mix everything together, but somehow every time he seems to make something, magic happens with the dressing. Then he shrugs it off as though it’s nothing. Luckily over the past decade I’ve managed to pick up a few of his tricks, and have never had to buy a bottle of processed dressing. Here’s what I’ve learned:
Way back before I was diagnosed with cancer I had three thoughts about the disease: 1) Kylie Minogue once had it. 2) There could be the possibility of being granted medical marijuana. 3) If you eat broccoli, you can prevent it. The night following the day I was diagnosed, I went out for dinner with my family to a Thai restaurant. I’d never really eaten much broccoli before, but something in me told me that this was the perfect time to start. So I took the funny looking vegetable out of everyone’s dishes and added them to my Thai green chicken curry. If only reversing cancer was that simple!
There’s real beauty in choosing a free-range heritage turkey. You’ll get richer flavor, better nutrition — and the satisfaction of supporting a rare breed of poultry farmer, too. On a thousand acres near Ellensburg, Wash., Greg and Laurie Newhall raise cattle, pigs, sheep, goats, chickens and — as of this year — turkeys. This place, Windy N Ranch, is a free-range pasture paradise. And the turkeys here aren’t your average supermarket-variety birds, but a heritage breed called Black Spanish, one of 11 breeds (including Bourbon Red, Narragansett and White Holland) that the American Livestock Breeds Association is working to protect from extinction.
