Previously I posted Part One and Part two of Dr. Kelly Brogan’s book, A Mind of Your Own, subtitled: “The Truth About Depression and How Women Can Heal Their Bodies to Reclaim Their Lives.” Here are the links to the review. Click on the titles.
If you don’t have time to go back to read this book, here is a thumbnail blurb from the back cover that is excellent:
“In this groundbreaking, science-based, and holistic approach, Dr. Brogan shatters the mythology conventional medicine has built around the causes and treatment of depression. Based on her expert interpretation of published medical findings as well as years of experience from her clinical practice, Dr. Brogan illuminates the true cause of depression: it is not simply a chemical imbalance, but a lifestyle crisis
that demands a reset. It is a signal that the interconnected systems in the body are out of balance—from blood sugar to gut health to thyroid function—and inflammation is at the root.”
Dr. Brogan is a graduate of M.I.T. (studying cognitive neuroscience) with an MD fromWeilll Cornell Medical College. “She is uniquely qualified in psychiatry, psychosomatic medicine, and integrative holistic medicine.”
Having written all her qualifications, she is also an able cook. Here is her Cauliflower Rice, a relatively new addition (as “rice” to avoid grains) to eating your vegetables. (Photo from the Internet)
1 large head of cauliflower (I would use organic-es)
1 tablespoon extra-firing olive oil (again, organic, es)
Unprocessed sea salt (optional, noted below-es)
Cut the cauliflower into large pieces, then drop the pieces into the lid of a food processor until it’s three-quarters full (do this in batches if necessary). Pulse until completely broken down into bits the size of couscous.
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the cauliflower and season with salt, if using. Cover and cook for 7 minutes, until tender. For a coconut cauliflower rice variation, use coconut oil instead of olive oil and sprinkle with raw shredded coconut at the end.
Part 2 has full publishing info. Pub. by an imprint of Harper Collins, 2016. Prices range for Kindle, hardcover, and softcover, as well as audio versions. Check Amazon, Alibris, or your local bookstore.
