Food Quotes

"No therapy or drug known to modern medical science can rebuild tissue that has been damaged by disease or trauma. Food alone can accomplish this feat. It is for this reason that nutrition is an indispensable weapon against disease".
Dr. Bernard Jensen (1908-2001)

Scrumptious Macaroni and Cheese with Ham

1/4 c. real butter (from grass-fed cows)
1/4 C. unbleached all-purpose flour
2 c. warm whole milk (pasteurized whole cream-top, never homogenized or ultra-homogenized)
dash pepper
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons real soy sauce (brewed or fermented)
2 c. cooked ham, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (optional)
1/2 c. sour cream or creme fraiche (organic from grass-fed cows)
12 oz. sharp cheddar cheese (from grass-fed cows; not treated with rBST)
8 ounces organic brown rice elbow macaroni, cooked and drained
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a heavy saucepan over low heat, melt butter; add flour and stir with a wooden spoon 3 minutes or until roux is frothy. Gradually stir warm milk into roux. Turn up heat; stir until sauce is just at boiling point. Turn down heat and let simmer a few minutes. Add pepper, cayenne pepper, and soy sauce. Stir in ham and sour cream; simmer briefly or until flavors are blended. Stir 3/4 c. cheese into simmering sauce until milted. Combine cheese sauce with macaroni and pour into a greased 2-quart dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese; bake for 30 minutes or until bubbly and lightly golden. Makes 6 servings.
