Great carbohydrates Monday – Primed Coconut Cream Cabbage with Mustard and Chili

Primed involves no cheap and nasty Carbs like Bread, Pasta, Noodles, Rice, Crackers etc. These cheap carbs are all less than optimal nutrition, cause large spikes in your blood sugar levels and also cause inflammation in your body due to the excess sugars they are metabolized as. This then affects your immune system.

The Primed Lifestyle involves eating more healthy fats and quality Carbohydrates. This week I will highlight 7 quality Carbohydrate Recipes that are far superior in nutrients to any of the cheap carbs mentioned above.

Eat more quality carbohydrates, healthy fats and protein and you will reduce inflammation in your body (less aches and pains), bring your blood sugars down to a healthy level and stabilize them (better moods), and build your immune system so as to fight, not feed, disease.

Eat real food with real flavors and experience unreal results. You will get more energy, mental clarity and ailments will disappear or be reduced.

Filipino Fried Rice – The Primed Version for Longer Life

I LOVE a great Fried Rice. With the right Primed ingredients it can be a meal in itself and something that powers your body and mind all day.

However, with the wrong ingredients and cooked using vegetable oil it will spike your blood sugar levels (and therefore insulin) and can have severe adverse health consequences.

Dr. Cate Shanahan (chief nutritional doctor of the L.A.Lakers and respected author of Deep Nutrition) surveyed hundreds of patients in New Zealand that were admitted to the hospital for a heart attack, and discovered that every single patient that just had a heart attack had consumed foods made with vegetable oils with their last meal before the heart attack…Scary huh! Information from this site.

Filipino Fried Rice1

How about a healthy and nutritious Primed Filipino Fried Rice? One that you can add your own twist to by including local vegetables that suit your budget. Vegetables like Malunggay, Okra and Kangkong can all be used in this dish besides the ones mentioned. Imagine the nutritional value of this version with your Pork or Chicken instead of just plain white rice? Here, you are giving your mind and body high performance fuel.
