One thing that you will find as you begin to start eating healthy and organic on a consistent basis is that your cravings begin to change. Not only will you discover the health benefits of consistently eating organic to be a boost to your body and its ability to heal, but you will also notice that your taste for certain foods will migrate toward real, live food. When you give your body what it needs to thrive instead of just survive, it responds with vigor and then craves those foods which you are nurturing it with.
This happens to me quite frequently, but I have been at this a long time. After winning a battle with cancer years ago, through changing my diet and replacing what I ate with healing, live food, my cravings for fruits, veggies and healthful nutrition enabled my body to heal and transformed my life.
Recently, while we were making deliveries of our organic produce and groceries to our customers across Oregon, I had this kind of craving come over me. All I could think about was getting back to the farm that evening and creating a quick simple dish that is packed with vitamins and nutrients that my body was craving. So after making this simple organic dish, I decided to put up the easy recipe for a mouth watering dinner that you can make in just minutes.
