The recipe sondus awesome! I can't wait 2 try it! I had stage 4 cancer and was sent home after being told nothing could be done. I changed my diet to vegetarian (primarily fresh veggies) as well as a few other natural vitamins etc. and am currently cancer free going on 5 years now. All the stuff the animals are subjected to both chemicals and living conditions are passed on to us. Also, all the junk that is put into our food these days is literally killing us. I am living proof of that!!!!
