Organic for Health by Sandy Powers


When Sandy was diagnosed with breast cancer and liver disease, she could not undergo any further cancer treatment after her mastectomy due to her unhealthy liver. She turned to organic foods to heal her liver and fight cancer recurrence. Sandy Powers is living proof that all foods are not created equal. Added hormones, antibiotics, and toxic pesticides and fertilizers are swimming in that chicken soup you think is so healthy.

Sandy shares her research, her amazing results, and her recipes rich in antioxidants and immune boosters in her book, "Organic for Health."



Recipe from “Organic for Health”
by Sandy Powers

Jasmati Rice with Spinach
Serves 6


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large organic sweet onion, chopped
1 cup organic frozen mixed vegetables, defrosted
1 (10 oz.) box frozen organic spinach, defrosted, drained
1 cup uncooked organic Jasmati rice
2 cups organic chicken broth

Put rice in pan and add chicken broth. Bring to a boil.

Cover with lid that is tightly wrapped in a small towel.

Secure wrapped lid on pan, making sure the towel does not touch any part of the stovetop. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes until all broth is absorbed and rice is slightly dry. Shut off heat but keep pan on burner. Sauté onion in olive oil for 2 minutes. Add mixed vegetables and drained spinach. Continue to sauté for 5 more minutes. Put rice in large bowl. Add spinach mixture and mix well.

Organic rice has B complex vitamins that work together to maintain healthy
skin and muscle tone. B complex vitamins help to prevent anemia.

Spinach extracts have slowed cell division in stomach cancer. Organic spinach
is high in kaempferol. The Nurses Health Study revealed women whose
diets were high in kaempferol had a 40 percent less risk of ovarian cancer.

Antioxidant, Immune Boosters, Phytonutrients

One of the concerns with buying organic foods is the cost. In my article, "Strategic Shopping for Health," on www.americanchronicle.com (click on latest articles under features to the left)
I give tips to shop strategically for organics in this time of spiraling food costs.
Good Health,
Sandy Powers
