Oh. My. Goodness! You are in for a treat. This is one of our quickest, easiest and most delicious healthy eating tricks.
When we have fresh apricots on hand we like to blend them in our Vitamix or food processor and freeze them in a glass mason jar (leaving about 2 inches of space from the top). Then, when we need a quick and easy meal, we pull the apricots out of the freezer, let them mostly thaw and pour it on top of some organic chicken, beef or pork. Oh, is it good! You can use the Crock Pot or a pressure cooker (sometimes called an Insta Pot) depending on how much time you have, which makes it even better.
If you don’t happen to have any frozen apricots (peaches work as well) you can use fresh or apricot jelly. If you happen to have some next year make sure you freeze a bunch. It sure makes busy days easier!
Forbidden Rice is a bit like brown rice but we actually prefer the taste! It is full of antioxidants, which can improve brain function and reduce inflammation. It can help keep the heart healthy, detoxify the body, aid digestion and weight loss, help prevent diabetes and more! It really is a nutritional treasure. (source)
