Jane Day is co-author with Dr. John Day of "The Longevity Plan," documenting their journey to China's Longevity Village. "Preparing food for guests has always been a stressful thing - feeling inadequate and fearing that the dishes wouldn't turn out. Posting recipes has been an exercise in the ultimate confrontation of this fear. Gratefully, the joy in figuring out how to make favorite dishes with healthier ingredients now exceeds the fear and I take courage in the idea that maybe I can help someone else do the same."
This sauce is one of my favorites for nearly any vegetable stir fry served over brown rice. It is made from four simple ingredients: organic amino acids, rice vinegar, toasted sesame oil, and garlic.
Liquid Aminos Bragg Liquid Aminos is one of my favorite ingredients for vegetable sautees and for many soups, both for the taste and for the health benefits. It is a great alternative to soy sauce or tamari sauce. Adequate Amino Acids help vitamins and minerals to do what they are designed to do for us. According to bragg.com, Bragg Liquid Amino contains these essential Amino Acids: Arginine * Aspartic * Lysine * Glutamic * Serine * Threonine * Alanine * Glycine * Proline * Isoleucine * Methionine * Valine * Phenylalanine * Tyrosine * Leucine.
Organic Rice Vinegar Flavor without calories. One of my favorite ways to enjoy vegetables, whether in a sauté or salad, is by creating a tangy sauce or dressing with vinegar. Vinegars contain phenols, naturally occurring plant compounds which may help reduce risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis.
Organic Toasted Sesame Oil I really enjoy the nutty flavor of toasted sesame oil. For an enhanced flavor, look for “toasted” sesame oil. Sesame oil has many health benefits that make it a good alternative to other oils to use in moderation.
Garlic Garlic’s flavor is divine. It is a tasty, healthy little companion to add to most any cooked dish. Many eat it raw for its health benefits as well. That one is a little tougher for me, but I’ll do it when I feel I can! Garlic boasts the anti-oxidant properties of Allicin. It is also beneficial to regulate blood pressure and blood sugar, among many other benefits. Dehydrated sliced garlic is quick and tasty in recipes.
