“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”
~ W.B. Yeats
Do You Believe in Magic?
Two weeks ago, I featured a recipe called Mackerel in Magic Sauce, because the sauce was so delicious, it transformed the fish. But the true test of a magic sauce is if it does the same for many different recipes. So, I put this one to the test on a beef, broccoli and pineapple stir fry. Result? Again, one of the most delicious things I’ve ever eaten. Magic Sauce is well-named! If you use it in other recipes, please let me know. What should I try it on next?
The Power of Sulfur
Dr. Terry Wahls recommends we eat 3 cups sulfur-rich vegetables daily, and this meal has you covered with broccoli, cauliflower and garlic all falling into this category. Why are these vegetables so important? Sulfur is involved in hundreds of biological processes in our bodies and is particularly important in supporting our natural detoxification pathways. In the past century, over 80,000 new chemicals have been released into the environment and no matter how careful we are, we can’t avoid them all. We are all toxic to some degree, and thankfully our body is set up to detoxify daily. The problem is that those systems were never intended to process the amount of toxins we are faced with today. There’s medicine in our groundwater, pollutants in the air, and plastic in our bloodstream. I know that sounds scary, but there are also sulfur-rich vegetables available to eat, and they really are medicinal foods. They boost our bodies’ ability to detoxify more toxins, more efficiently.
