Chayote Rice Fry

As I’ve mentioned before, lately, I’ve been on a transitional alkaline lifestyle path. Choosing to eat for an electric body is a choice that I’m taking. Every time I’m on set, people always ask me how do I have so much energy, all the time and all day.

Well, my secret is eating foods that have a high ph level. Drinking smoothies, having fresh squeezed lime water and overall balance of raw and cooked foods.  When I rise with the sun, I soak up Vitamin D with the light from It as well

I wont bore you to death but this meal literally took under 20 minutes to make and it’s my GO TO meal when I don’t have a lot of time.

INGREDIENTS:

1 chayote
1/2 onion
1/2 green pepper
6 Mushrooms
2 1/2 cups organic Kale
3 Tbls Grapeseed oil
1 1/2 cup cooked Wild rice/ Quinoa

1/8 tsp Cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp ground sage

THE BEGINNING -21 Day Health Challenge

When I think about eating, I think about what’s best for my body long term. Most of us have gotten warped in the new society of gmos, toxins and harmful chemicals in our foods.  Eating for YOU has essentially become harder so I decided to create a 21 day health challenge to get myself on the right track.

Day one wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be but going to Philly on the first day of my detox was definitely a challenge. Having meals prepped and ready to go, made my commitment smoother.

The meals were not too bad and craving for sweet and savory items didn’t exist. Prepping and cook time for each meal was no more than 20 minutes including prep time and best of all, I lost 3lbs in 4 days.

I am still in the first phase, mid-week and I wanted to share my progress on FOOD JUNKIE 21’s -21 Day Health Challenge.

If you follow me on Instagram and Facebook, you will see an array of images.

These are just a few of my favorites. The Lettuce hand sandwich smothered in hummus. Sweet potato stir fry, Egg & Vegetable scramble w Quinoa and Chickpeas, and a Green Smoothie.
