Dr Jockers Comments:

This is an amazingly tasty recipe for someone who enjoys food preparation and novelty foods. This is fantastic for a party or a social gathering.

I don’t recommend consuming much grains but quinoa is the best one overall. This is great for a carb meal for someone on a cyclic ketogenic diet. Herbs such as sage, garlic, chili, tarragon and red pepper improve circulation and oxygenation. They also have anti-microbial components that destroy parasites, yeast and bad bacteria in order to restore a healthy gut microflora.

I personally get my pasture-raised chicken from US Wellness Meats as they have an incredible selection and their chickens never eat any sort of grain. They are 100% free-range and consume grasses, weeds and bugs throughout the course of their lives. This helps them concentrate omega-3’s, antioxidants and other powerful nutrients.
