 Concept Art: The beginning of winter

If you want to deny yourself winter colds, fevers, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, cancer and a whole host of unpleasant things, this is the dish to prepare. Plus, it is really a taste treat. Made of some of the things you probably would normally try to avoid like quinoa, swiss chard.

Anyway, it includes, aside from the above, 5-6 garlic cloves (I live alone), red onion, button mushrooms (do not pick them yourself unless you are an expert on mushrooms), summer squash, top grade olive oil
And on top: melted on the stove slices of maasdam cheese (any hard cheese will do), mixed  with 2 heaping spoons (it’s winter here) of coconut oil and a small amount of milk (this one has too much, but it worked out) photos of Dutch maasdam cheese
Plus salt, turmeric, black pepper, leaf coriander
Instructions: dump everything into the pan on some olive oil and start cooking. when almost done to less than fully cooked, add the swiss chard plus the chopped up stems and cook for another 2-3 minutes. One note: make the black quinoa (small grains) the day before, or use another type of quinoa. In my experience, unlike other quinoas, the small black quinoa which I bought takes double or three times the time to cook. I finally gave up and fixed myself something else the previous day, and let the quinoa simmer until done.
If you have not tried quinoa, this is definitely one grain you should try. Considered a superfood, quinoa is a complete protein and contains phosphorus, magnesium, iron, calcium, and is gluten free. “…quinoa is being considered a possible crop in NASA’s Controlled Ecological Life Support System for long-duration human occupied spaceflights”
Things I could have added but didn’t in order to save for lunch tomorrow: tomato, more onion, butter and although I have enough for lunch, oregano and thyme which adds to the power of neutralizing unwanted microbes, mold, viruses, along with the awesome power of turmeric when added along with a small amount of black pepper.
Spices against illness – ingredients to help against sickness: coconut oil (very good against Alzheimer’s), turmeric (curcumin plus black pepper helps avoid/cure cancer).  
While on the subject of turmeric, this is a letter written to a young girl who is fighting cancer.
I assume that you have received many helpful suggestions from well wishers and this is just one more. But I hope that you will at least watch the first video below. The reason I am writing this is that when I was in a difficult situation, everyone knew about alternative possibilities which would have made life much easier and just didn’t think about mentioning them, or thought I already knew, so why tell me. I therefore send this to you with the hope that it might generate some searching of things which, with some simple changes, could lead to overcoming your diagnosis and which may actually be the path to freedom from your condition without or along side of your current medical treatment. I hope you have someone there to help with everything you are going through, even if it’s just a cat…First, please take a look at this one video

Second, if you are still interested, you should definitely take a look at this: 
Turmeric: One Spice Fits All Imbalances by Dr. John Douillard 
I personally use at least 2 heaping teaspoons daily on things like vegetable dishes, soups, egg dishes, sandwiches, spaghetti. Given its effect on the body, this amount will give you a fighting chance and if you continue with chemo, may increase effectiveness and reduce side effects (see References at the bottom of this letter). 
<Important note:> Be sure that you do not confuse turmeric with cumin (which is a different plant) or with curry, which may in fact have no curcumin in it at all. Available at health food stores to ensure quality.

Reportedly, ‘Outsmart Your Cancer’ has helped many people overcome their cancers including ovarian cancer.
