One should never feel deprived when detoxing, right? It is detox, day 5 and it is the last one! It was fun but I will be more than happy to have my glass of wine this weekend. These bananas in brown sugar prove that even on detox you can satisfy your sweet tooth.
Recipe found on this blog http://www.thewellnesswarrior.com.au. This girl was diagnosed with cancer, but she avoided full-body chemotherapy (and her arm amputation) and decided to heal with Gerson diet. It was successful and now is promoting the therapy and encouraging other people.
When preparing these bananas remember to keep them on low heat. Brown sugar caramelizes nicely and bananas were simply delicious, with beautiful lemon flavour - light and refreshing.
Next Monday we are back to normal, regular blogging - we will serve delicious Chicken roula des stuffed with blue cheese, gerkins and bacon. See you than!
P.S. We present you as well one last documentary "Fat, sick and nearly dead", inspiring tale of healing and human connection. Enjoy!
Tell us how did you find Gerson Diet week, did you enjoy it? How did you like the recipes?
Bananas in brown sugar
- 1 organic banana
- 1 tsp organic brown sugar
- 1 tbs lemon juice
- 1 tsp organic honey
- few mint leaves for decoration
- lemon zest
Cut banana lengthwise. Place brown sugar in a bowl, coat banana halves in sugar. Heat small teflon-coated frying pan on a low heat (either 3 or 4). Place banana on a pan, sprinkle with lemon juice. Fry each side for about 3-4 minutes. Serve hot, topped with honey and decorated with lemon zest and mint leaves.
If you are wondering what to prepare for dinner today, here is an idea (it comes from the same above mentioned blog):
Gerson-style potato bake
- 3 medium organic potatoes
- 2 large organic tomatoes
- 1 organic onion
- 2 cloves garlic
Slice potatoes and tomatoes and layer on top of each other in a medium-sized baking dish. Start with potatoes, then add tomatoes on top and keep layering until the dish is full. Add a little onion, garlic and dill between each of the layers. Sprinkle the top layer with more onion, garlic and dill. Bake in an oven heated to 180°C for about an hour.
