Tostada Shells-Phase 1

Main Meals Recipes for Phase 1.0 Healing Diet

The purpose of designing the main meal recipe section in “There Is a Cure for Diabetes” is for you to discover your unique optimal way of eating. Normally, we are taught to eat 3–4 square meals each day. While this may be true for some, we recognize that it is not true for all. Depending on your lifestyle, your body constitution (as described in “Conscious Eating”), and your oxidative profile, you may want to have one or two main meals daily. In the Phase 1.0 Healing Diet, we do not need to limit ourselves to “breakfast, lunch, and dinner” because with a live-food lifestyle you may eat your lunch for breakfast, or take your breakfast as a snack, or have a snack in place of dinner. It is important to relearn what you need in order to be truly satisfied.

  • 7 C. mixed vegetables
  • 2 tsp. lemon
  • 2 tsp. cumin
  • ¾ tsp. Himalayan Salt
  • 1/8 tsp. chipotle
  • ½ C. flax seeds, whole
  • ½ C. flax seed, ground (add to blended mix to get to desired consistency)

Blend all ingredients except whole flax seeds, add whole flax seeds at the end.  Use 1/3 cup of the mixture per shell. Shape into 5” small round tortilla shapes on teflex sheets. You can use a template to shape tostadas if desired. Place 4 tortillas on each dehydrator tray and dehydrate at 115°F for 10-12 hours. (If using conventional oven please heat oven to lowest temperature setting, place tostadas using baking pans lined with parchment paper, place pans in oven, keep door slightly open, check in 5 hours. Add time until desired crunch. Conventional ovens dehydrate more quickly and often dehydration times are cut in half.)
