I adored his big stainless mixing bowls tossing up mayonnaise-heavy salads spiked with the thrill of cayenne pepper. He finished every dish excitedly with a shout of “ewhheeeeee!” Spicy food was not part of my childhood experience; he made it seem so fun and exciting. I am as thrilled as he was to bring this delicious creamy Southern American classic to the Protective Diet Community with adjustments to promote our health and satisfy our love of delicious down home comfort food.
  • Annatto Rice Premium PD Recipe Annato Rice - © ProtectiveDiet.comAnnatto is a popular spice used in Central and South America.

  • Better Than Bacon Premium PD Recipe Better Than Bacon - © ProtectiveDiet.comI’ve heard many say they are vegan, except for bacon. I just can’t seem to get my mind around watching people eat animal fat without fearing for their lives. Didn’t they get the memo? Bacon producers have confused the consumer into thinking bacon is healthy to eat if it is organic and nitrate-free. This is a huge distraction from the fact it increases the risk of premature death of humans. Adolescents are challenged with the beginning stages of heart disease and the loss of their parents prematurely due to the consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol. Despite this, bacon has risen in popularity amongst foodies, chefs and tops just about every dish at restaurants. Premature death from heart attacks happens once every forty seconds. I would like to intervene and reduce risk of death due to poor food choices with Protective Diet’s version of Better than Bacon. It has the smoked, apple, salty flavor without the risk of sudden death. Growing up I adored a very processed style of bacon called Sizzle Lean. I layered it with mayo, garden fresh tomatoes, leaf lettuce and warm toast. I’m thrilled to have created this simple and totally delicious recipe to satisfy my memories for comfort food favorites like bacon.

    LOVE LOVE that you are focusing on this. Kids are so picky and it will probably help my husband as well. Thank you! I have printing out recipes all afternoon and my almost 5 year old is very excited to start picking some out to make (tomorrow). She is the most excited about the tater tots… I can’t wait to get started.

    Lots of weird stuff in the kids stuff recipes. Is this still a work in progress?
