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)

Vanilla Cream Pudding

This is a fairly healthy option for dessert when made with either palm sugar (this is the best option) or maple syrup. You could actually substitute a little stevia for some of the sugar and it would even be better. Of course the eggs are a great source of protein and the whole milk and butter provide healthy fat. Anyway, it is a heavenly dessert. If you've only eaten those powdered pudding mixes with chemical flavors, you will be quite delighted when this pudding lights on your taste buds for the first time.

3/4 cup palm sugar or 2/3 cup pure organic maple syrup
3 tablespoons arrowroot powder or cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon real sea salt or Redmond's Real Salt
3 cups whole milk (non-homogenized)
3 egg yolks, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons butter
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions: Mix sugar, cornstarch and salt in a medium saucepan. Gradually stir in milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat. Gradually stir at least half of hot mixture into egg yolks. Then blend into hot mixture in saucepan. Boil 1 minute more, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Blend in butter and vanilla. Pour immediately into single serving dishes. Let cool. Serve by itself or with a little whipped cream on top.  

Chocolate Pudding: Make above recipe, except increase palm sugar to 1 3/4 cups and add ½ cup of unsweetened cocoa, stirred into sugar, arrowroot powder (or cornstarch) and salt, then proceed with recipe as instructed.
