Food is the best medicine! Any time you can take preventive measures with your health I encourage it! Here’s one of my newest recipes that is not only yummy but also helps your body be and stay well!

Rich in antioxidants, nutrients such as iodine (supports thyroid function) and rich in omega acids, this recipe is a good one to cycle into your nutrition on a weekly basis.

1 cup black rice (heirloom)
2 tbsp tahini
2 tbsp miso dressing
3/4 lb organic, grass-fed ground buffalo
1 avocado
1 bag kelp noodles
6-8 oz. bag seaweed
1 free-range egg


  1. Chop broccoli into small pieces.
  2. Add broccoli to boiling water and cook until tender.
  3. Drain broccoli and place in a large bowl.
  4. Put ground buffalo into a bowl and crack the egg on top.
  5. Mix using your hands.
  6. Divide ground buffalo into four sections and use your hands to shape into patties
  7. Lay each patty in a pan.

  10. Remove from heat and drain. Add rice to bowl.
  11. Add kelp noodles, and seaweed to pot of hot water and cook on high for a few minutes (no need to bring to a boil, just warm them up. The less you cook them the better as they will retain more of their nutrients).

  18. Serve and enjoy!

This can also be made without the rice if you are doing a grain free diet; however, if you exclude rice we recommend you include an alternative fiber source like black beans to get in healthy starches!!!!
