Today I am devoting this Tip of the Day to so many people who are challenged with cancer. You see, eating nutritionally will stop or at least limit the spread of cancer and enhance your treatment, whichever you choose to undergo. However, this is also important. Remember no sugar. Alternative sweeteners are perfect for this dish. This Tip not only benefits people with cancer. It also helps people who are looking to put more ingredients in their diet that are high in antioxidants and are a great prevention from getting an illness. Healing comes from within. So, along with a good nutritional foundation, incorporate a positive attitude by cleaning out the negativity from your mind through therapy, meditation, exercise, self help books, self improvement workshops. Whatever works for you. Don't let your mind continue to poison your body. Prevention is the key to a long, healthy life. Take all the steps needed. This recipe is for everyone and great for vegans. It's delicious, nutritious and a great alternative to a tuna salad.
so Vegan "No Tuna" Salad 1 - 15 oz. can Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans) rinsed and drained 3 Tablespoons (or more) Sesame Tahini 1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard 1 Tablespoon Monkfruit Sweetener (or 1 teaspoon Stevia) 1/4 cup diced Red Onion 1/4 cup diced Celery 1/4 cup diced Dill Pickles 1 teaspoon Capers, drained Salt and Pepper to taste 1 Tablespoon roasted unsalted (or raw) Sunflower Seeds
1) Place the Chickpeas in a bowl and mash them either with a fork or a potato masher, leaving some beans partially whole. 2) Add the Tahini, Mustard, Sweetener, Red Onion, Celery, Dill Pickle, Capers, Salt and Pepper and Sunflower Seeds. 3) Mix to fully incorporate all ingredients. Taste and adjust the salt and pepper. If you want a creamier texture, add more tahini. Serve on bread or by itself.
NOTE: If you are a raw foodist, this recipe is perfect. Just take sprouted Chickpeas found in your Health Food Store. Here in Florida we have Glaser Farms that delivers so many raw foods to Whole Foods Market. Using a food processor (instead of a potato masher) add 1 Tablespoon of water at a time to pulverize the beans into rice-like pieces. Use raw Tahini instead of cooked.
