Whats on your plate?

Hello Kings and Queens!

In the last post I introduced you to Dr. Sebi and his healing foods and herbs. I also mentioned that you had to eat healthy to reap the benefits of a healthy body. I know that most people think that eating healthy means the end of the world. It isn’t. There are many recipes that involve eating healthy foods and making the foods taste great. I have been on the alkaline way of life for two months now and it has been a great experience. I don’t think I have ever cooked so much in my life. I get thrills off finding new recipes and experimenting with new favors. I really feel like a kid in a candy store. I included list of recipes that I found really easy to make and would help you with your salty and sweet cravings.
