Love Your Lemons- BY MARLA TUFARELLI LMT, CAT
Next time you go out to eat, order lemon wedges.
Lemons contain bacteria fighting agents. Squeeze the lemon into your water using your knife and fork to clean harmful bacteria off the surface. Squeeze the remaining juice in your hands and cleanse entire surface. The rind contains the oils, a more concentrated form of cleaning agent.
If you're brave enough not to look paranoid with your guest, peel the lemon, use the rind to clean your silverware, glass, and hands.
An added plus to this cleaning technique is that water with lemon stimulates digestive enzymes to improve digestion and is excellent for internal cleansing as well

1 stalk celery, chopped
2 cups water
2 cloves garlic, chopped

1 teaspoon chili oil
1 teaspoon sugar
2 cups julienned mixed

To make the Chile Oil, cut off the cilantro stems and set aside the leafy

the shallot and set aside the chopped shallot. Add the trimmings to the
cilantro stems. Finely grate the ginger and place it in a square of cheese

12 fresh coriander (cilantro) leaves
To make the tortillas: Pour the oil for frying into a large heavy-bottomed pot to a depth of about 1 1/2 inches. Place over medium heat and heat to 375 degrees F. Add the tortillas, one at a time, and fry until golden brown and crispy, about 1 1/2 minutes. Using tongs, transfer to a paper towel-lined pan and sprinkle with salt. Set aside. Using a splatter screen is very useful.
Using a shallow pan and with a coating of cooking spray, over medium heat, cooked your beef until browned
To make the chicken: In a small bowl, mix together the shredded cooked chicken, lime juice, oil, coriander, and salt and season with pepper to taste. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside.
To make beef: In a small bowl, mix together the beef, *1/2 cup chopped onions, salt and season to taste. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside.
To assemble the tostadas: Preheat the broiler. Spread the beans evenly over one side of each tortilla and sprinkle with some of the cheese. Transfer to a baking sheet and broil until the cheese is lightly browned and melted, about 30 seconds. Divide the tortillas among 6 plates.
Evenly mound the chicken on each tortilla and top with the lettuce. Top each tostada with avocado, salsa, and a dollop of sour cream. Sprinkle with the scallion and garnish the tostada with the coriander leaves. Serve immediately.
The tortillas must be fried until very crispy, otherwise they may become rubbery, making them difficult to handle.

(This is soooooooo delicious)
1 1/2 pounds baby spinach leaves
2 tablespoons good olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped garlic (6 cloves)
2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
Thoroughly rinse spinach in cold water Shake excess water from leaves, leaving just a little water on the leaves.
(This helps to heat the leaves, but not allow them to burn).
In large pot, at medium heat for about 1 minute, do not leave long enough to brown, your only heating it. Add the spinach, salt and pepper to the pot, toss it with the garlic and oil, cover the pot, and cook it for 2 minutes. Uncover the pot, turn the heat on high, and cook the spinach for another minute, stirring with a wooden spoon, until all the spinach is wilted. Using a slotted spoon, lift the spinach to a serving bowl and top with the butter, a squeeze of lemon.
Serve warm, or to taste.
Note. Sautéing Tip:
Sautéing quickly cooks relatively small or thin pieces of food. If you choose a good-quality nonstick pan, you can cook food without using fat. Depending on the recipe, use low-sodium broth, nonstick cooking spray or water in place of oil.

Foil vs. Plastic:
Choose foil if you are refrigerating something smelly, since its strong barrier will keep odors in. Just be sure to seal as tightly as possible. Foil is also ideal for reheating food in a conventional oven. And it's a good idea to wrap a snug layer of foil around plastic-wrapped foods you plan to freeze (like meat in its unopened packaging), because it keeps out oxygen, which causes freezer burn. Never wrap acidic foods, like tomatoes and berries, in foil. The acids react with the aluminum, leaving a harmless but unsightly blue residue.
Choose plastic for acidic foods and other fresh foods, like sandwiches and cut produce. To keep foods such as apples and avocados from turning brown, press the plastic against any exposed surfaces. And when you're using a dry marinade or spice rub, you can speed up the rate of absorption by snugly wrapping the meat between two sheets of plastic wrap.
