This is one of my top favorite restaurant remakes. It is as delicious as the original PF Chang’s version and surprisingly quick and easy to prepare. These guilt-free lettuce bundles are loaded with the crunch of water chestnuts and mushrooms and bathed in a dark slightly sweet garlic ginger sauce that you’d never guess is oil-free. It took a little PD recipe magic to perfect this quick-prep party-pleasing appetizer that can also be enjoyed as a meal alone, served over simple brown rice, or alongside Protective Diet Un-Fried Rice for a memorable evening of restaurant style Chinese favorites.
I have been practicing a Protective Diet for over 5 years as of this writing – December 2018. I have never felt such a sense of freedom and empowerment as I do in my life now. Once I committed to this lifestyle, there was no turning back. I simply choose it, every bite, every meal,… Read more or comment “I still don’t believe it….”
I have to admit when my mother suggested this idea of no meats, dairy, oils, etc. I was highly skeptical. Those are all the things I love about food! Then we made some of the recipes, starting with sauces like the sweet mustard dressing, ketchup, etc. I loved them. We then moved on to snacks… Read more or comment “I was skeptical… at first!”

I have weighed close to a quarter ton at my heaviest and have lost 213 pounds, over half of my body weight! I know that I will keep off the weight and allow my body to heal itself from all of the abuse I put it through because I am following a Protective Diet. A… Read more or comment “Denise N.”
I had a health scare back in August, 2000. I found out at my first mammogram I had breast cancer. I always thought my diet was ok but now I realized I was in for a battle of my life. I went the “traditional” route of a lumpectomy, chemo and radiation. During that time I… Read more or comment “Just what I was looking for”
Just a little over 30 days following PD, down 20 pounds. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Julie & Jerry for your incredible wisdom in developing this life altering program! Debra from Phoenix, AZ.
Recently, at age 52, I fell off of a motorized skateboard. I know… I know… but I love to skateboard! Anyway… I broke my knee. LUCKILY the insurance fought me and denied the MRI twice so by the time I had it done it was 5 weeks later. During this time I ate PD, used… Read more or comment “Angela and the Onewheel”
