Escalate All Foods to Medicine

In this time of COVID-19, all foods and drinks must be escalated to the level of the most efficacious medicine. I raised this simple sandwich to the level of medicinal efficacy when I added organic turmeric, garlic, and ginger.  In addition, I revved up the protein to what I call “high octane.” Anytime my meal contains three items with a protein content of at least 6 grams, I call it a high-octane meal.  For anyone over 40, a high-protein/high-octane meal is necessary.  For this sandwich: One cage-free, organic, boiled brown egg = 6 g One can of tuna in water = 20 g One-fourth cup Mozzarella cheese = 7 g Two shakes of turmeric (1/3 to 1/2 teaspoon) One clove of garlic (chopped to fine/tiny cubes) One shake of ginger (1/4 of a teaspoon) I washed it down with orange-lemon juice and hot ginger-turmeric-lemon tea. --Frances Ohanenye maintains this visual "cookbook" that features processes and ingredients in pictures.

Salad Surprise

For this blog, many words are not necessary. Serve the deceptive salad that looks plain. Wait with bated breath while the person complains about the uninspiring nature of the salad. Ask him/her to dig into the bowl.  Voila! This is a salad made with crunchy, soft, and other textures, music for the mouth: crispy green leaf lettuce, raw spinach, large Virginia peanuts, pitted black olives, crumbled goat cheese, sautéed mushrooms, seasoned black-eyed peas, and a drizzle of Sriracha. --Frances Ohanenye maintains this visual "cookbook" that features processes and ingredients in pictures.
