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

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

BIRYANI Vegetable Rice

What an Experiment with all the spices I use on a regular basis combined into one dish.

Biryani is an Indian rice used in fancy or special occasion dishes. Because I wanted to try something new, I combined the idea of stew without the sauce into the rice for an easy bake vegetable rice. Although, this meal tastes better with Jasmine Thai Rice, Biryani was the rice of choice for this meal

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
