“Three Organic Campari Tomatoes” Makes a Perfect Christmas Gift!

"Three Organic Campari Tomatoes"

Three Organic Campari Tomatoes” is an original oil painting on linen canvas I painted that can be yours. All materials are archival. Bids start at only $100 and will end in just five days. Because I overcame cancer using a plant-based diet, I have a new love and appreciation for fruits and vegetables. Because of this, I am painting these precious plants to remind and help as many people as possible to eat healthy everyday. The paintings are all unframed and small in size so that they can be hung in an intimate place in people’s homes at a price that allows most people to be able to own one; some may even want to start a collection. To bid on this painting, click  here.

Supporting Each Other

Looking In matted

Several people have written asking me if I would post these. And so here they are.

The first article appeared on the front cover of “The Westerly Sun”. 

Here is a video from Marilyn Dayton’s, TV show “From This Corner”.

This is an interview from Ed Cardinal’s “Talk Radio With Heart & Soul”, WRNP 1320 AM Radio Providence, RI”:

An article will be coming out soon in “The Resident,”  so be sure to look for it.

Thank you very much for your interest. I truly appreciate it.

Please know that I am happy to answer any questions that you or a loved one may have. My goal is to help as many people as I can, knowing what it’s like to be told you’re going to die — by five neurosurgeons- – or that you have cancer and have to get a mastectomy — though I knew I didn’t — and to have loved ones walk away, which is not an usual thing for someone with cancer to experience. I belong to an online support group and have learned that people leaving friends diagnosed with cancer is unfortunately pretty common. We even have a nickname for people who suddenly leave — “Road Runners” — because they take off pretty quickly, just like the cartoon character.

I know how important having support is and to know that people care. Sometimes it’s easier to talk to a stranger, since they don’t know us and aren’t in our lives. Please pass the word and whenever someone you care about is diagnosed with cancer or any serious disease, please tell them they can find me, someone who cares and understands, by simply going to my website and using the contact form.

Sending my Love and Peace,

Sandi

Robin’s Pink Lentil and Coconut Fantastic Soup

The perfect dinner guest is one who responds upon taking their first taste of the soup that you’ve placed before them by saying “This is the best thing that I’ve ever tasted!”  I was quite delighted when this recently happened to me and I instantly knew I had to share this recipe with all my blog readers.

The following recipe was given to me by my college roommate Robin. Thank you very much! It truly has become a favorite of mine as well as my dinner guests.

 

Robin’s Pink Lentil and Coconut Fantastic Soup

1 ½ tablespoons cumin seeds

1 tablespoon coriander seeds

2 tablespoons extra virgin organic olive oil

¼ cayenne or serrano pepper (more or less to taste)

1 small white onion, finely diced

1 cup pink organic lentils

4 – 5 cups organic vegetable stock or you can use water

1 13.5 oz. can of organic coconut milk

2 tablespoons grated fresh peeled ginger

½ tablespoon black pepper

½ teaspoon pink Himalayan salt

2 tablespoons lemon zest from an organic lemon only

2 lemons, juiced or 5 tablespoons of bottled lemon juice

½ bunch of fresh chopped cilantro, or more for garnish

Avocado, diced for garnish

 

  1. Toast cumin and coriander seeds in a dry pot over medium heat for 2 minutes. You will smell their aromas when they’ve cooked enough.
  2. Add the olive oil, pepper and onion. Cook and stir until onion is translucent.
  3. Add the next six ingredients.
  4. Turn heat down to low and stir well. Cover, stirring occasionally for the next 30 – 35 minutes, until the lentils have softened and lost their shape. Taste and feel free to add more water, if you prefer this soup thinner.
  5. When soup is done, remove from burner and add lemon zest and juice.
  6. Garnish with diced avocado and fresh cilantro on top.

I hope you enjoy this delicious soup. Please let me know how you like it and be sure to send me your favorite vegan recipes too so that together, we can help keep people healthy, improve their health, help people get rid of their cancer and help keep it from reoccurring in others.

May you be well,

Sandi
