If you like beans in your chili, garbanzos right out of the can are great in this. 2 Turkey Burgers with Side of SauerkrautBy Kim RobinsonOn Turkey Versus Beef...
Oprah had it right beef is bad news. Turkey breaks down faster, beef sticks around way too long.
Geographic data show an association between beef consumption and bowel cancer incidence. Argentina, New Zealand, Scotland and Uruguay, all high beef consumers, show high bowel cancer rates. This trend is also apparent in the urban North United States. Farmers and Southerners tend to eat more chicken and suffer less bowel cancer according to the Medical Tribune.
Increased putrification of the gut, increased risk of auto intoxificaton and increased bowel transit time are all contributing factors.
My Family’s GumboBy Kim Robinson “Every person’s life is like a pot of gumbo, you get out what you put in.” Helen Broussard
Gumbo is a popular Louisiana dish, a kind of soup. There must be a million variations on how to make it. Every person who makes it thinks theirs is better than the next. I have seen people arguing over what is the best way to make this dish. Just like life, everyone has some input on what would make the next person’s life better. Some people want more sausage, more shrimp, or no shrimp. Some want crab or oysters. Some prefer more spice, more file’ (feelay).
One thing they all have in common is a Roux (Roo). Roux is the gravy base and the foundation of this dish. It gives the soup its flavor and is what makes you get that second bowl. Everyone has a Roux in their life. Someone who influenced every step they took, and gave their life direction. Mother was my Roux.
In order to see into this incredible woman, you have to know what came before and what came after. That is where we go in The Roux in the Gumbo novel.
Let’s go, it is going to be an adventure.
