Forbidden Rice and Edamame Salad

Nancy brought this homegrown recipe in for Thrive to try and we could not be more pleased with how it turned out! Sadly, Dr. Palermo didn't bring enough for seconds!

Cooking at home is the best way to control your diet and optimize the ingredients that enter your body. As more nutritional data is released, there is clear support for the medicinal benefits of food. Nutritional studies support an Anti-Inflammatory Whole Food Plant-based diet rich in fruits and vegetables, healthy fats, legumes and organic meats in small amounts. This diet is consistent with a Mediterranean diet but includes the foods of many other cultures for diversity and benefits. One of the best ways to keep yourself motivated is to introduce new foods and ingredients to keep your diet exciting. Cooked Asian mushrooms...
