I'm not writing a medical journal or update, but at the end of the day, research proves that turmeric has helped in aiding or preventing: alzheimer's disease, arthritis and cancer.

Check my math at:

Be that as it may... not only does turmeric bring a vibrant, golden huge to a dish, but it helps your body combat disease thru its anti-inflammatory properties. Not only is it a main ingredient in a plethora of Indian curries, but it also is used to make American mustard yellow.


Avocados have definitely become a favorite food - as they are creamy in texture, vibrant in color and rich in omega 3 fatty acids. Since I juice every day, I often have a rainbow of vegetables - half-way consumed, but organized in my refrigerator, nonetheless.

Dear tummy grumble. Meet breakfast. You two will hit it off. Love, sb

Avocado. Cilantro. Egg. Purple cabbage. Zucchini.


Cut avocado into 1/2 and gently remove the seed. In the middle of the avocado, drizzle with lemon juice, then gently crack an egg in the aperture (hole). Sprinkle with turmeric, cajun seasoning and a hint of cayenne pepper. Pop into a 400 degree oven until the egg begins to coagulate (it begins to turn vibrant white and the egg yolk becomes slightly firm... enough to keep its shape when cooked).

With the purple cabbage and zucchini, I simply cut the veggies into small diced chunks (the smaller the cut, the faster it will cook)... sautéed in coconut oil, lemon juice, herbs de provence, turmeric, smoked sea salt and cayenne pepper.

As far as presentation, I kept it simple. I know, sometimes the refined, "de-constructed" plates can be slightly intimidating. However, this is an easy dish that is incredibly fast, healthy and bursting with flavors.

“Cookery means…English thoroughness, French art, and Arabian hospitality; it means the knowledge of all fruits and herbs and balms and spices; it means carefulness, inventiveness, and watchfulness.” - John Ruskin

Love y'all dearly!
