Amazing papaya seeds

Naseem, Nasir’s co-researcher, said that the juice of papaya seeds can prevent the kidney from becoming dysfunctional as it contains flavonoids, which can prevent germs from causing diseases.

She also noted that papaya seeds can protect people from several infections and that they can even rid the body of intestine insects. According to Naseem, around 76.7 percent of Nigerian children got rid of intestine insects by simply drinking papaya seed juice for seven days.

She also cited that the Japanese believed that taking in a teaspoon of papaya seeds can protect their liver from some diseases. Likewise, she said that papaya seeds contain a special compound that helps stop the formation of tumors. She also added that such seeds can cure hemorrhoid kind of diseases and that papaya seeds can be used alongside milk to prevent typhoid disease.

RAW VEGAN YUMMY AND CREAMY CAESAR DRESSING!

When people start their vegan journey, they always seem so disappointed that they can’t have all of those salad dressings they were so used to having before. But guess what….you can still have them, and they are and can be even better! Not only are they delicious, but they are so much healthier for us without all of the added junk you typically find in salad dressings. You can actually enjoy having them knowing they have no added preservatives or chemicals that we aren’t even able to pronounce.

The best part is that they are also guilt free! No animals had to die or suffer for you to enjoy some dressing on your salads. Even if you are not vegan you should give them a try, they really are that good!

Thanks to my daughter who had us over at her home for thanksgiving! Not only was all her food the yummiest, but she made the most delicious kale salad with caesar dressing which inspired me to make a new raw version for all of you :).

I’ve made a couple vegan Caesar salad recipes over the years but I think this version is my best one yet. Recipes are always a works in progress for me just like my art 🙂 and I find each time I make them they get better and better,  I’m always trying new ways to improve them!.

So here is the link to my CAESAR DRESSING!

Dragon Lady!!! Sweet with a hot spicy bite

Can I say delicious!!! Wasn’t sure what I wanted to make myself for dinner tonight, so I just started to cut up some yellow peppers and see where it would lead me.  Figuring that yellow pepper would be one of my ingredients, it just started to flow and before I knew it, It was just coming along!

Not only is she beautiful to look at, but also so very delicious :). This dish is light and fresh, yet the heat of the pepper and ginger kept this dish dancing on the tip of my tongue!.

So here are the ingredient’s I used to create the dragon lady. Serves four, or one raw vegan like myself,  and I am sure I could have doubled it up for me 🙂 Enjoy!!
