Cancer Prevention Recipe: Rosemary Raspberry Salad & Salmon Patties
Since my mother's passing in 2011 of a rare brain cancer, along with chemo and radiation which deteriorated her entire body, I have been driven to find out as much as I can about cancer and discover the natural blessings God has gifted us with here on this interesting planet we live on. I have found that many of the fruits and vegetables we have had on and off relationships with since childhood, have been filled with marvelous and miraculous effects.
I have done extensive research over the past few years on everything cancer related. I have a passion for medicine and health, my mother was a nurse and my father is one as well. I have created this meal as one of the first dishes in my anti-cancer diet plan that I am creating. There are so many people out there who are eating anti-cancer diets to prevent and fight cancer. It's time to become healthy in every way and live as God intended us to, despite all of the enemies your body faces on a daily basis.
Rosemary and Raspberry Salad
Fat Free Balsamic Dressing
1 can Wild Alaskan Salmon
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup chopped onion
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Seasons to taste
Drain liquid reserve
Smash and smash and smash that salmon until everything is ground up and mixed in.
Add egg, flour, onions and seasonings
Roll a fourth of the mixture into a ball and flatten it into a thick patty. Repeat.
Cook in oil until golden brown on each side. Flip gently.
Now on to the good stuff. I am going to list out, very briefly, some benefits of each of the ingredients used in this dish. So you can see how much of a nutrient packed combination this whole situation really is. This is excluding the dressing. I will be working on a dressing recipe soon.
