Can You Name This Vegetable?

Healthforus Green Vegetable
I read Dr. Bob’s Optimal Health* tip-of-the-day to “eat one fresh organic vegetable that you never tried.” It was fun to go shopping with intent to find a new produce item. I’ll tell you about the great vegetable I “discovered,” but first I want to share how Dr. Bob’s devotional book helps restore physical, mental and spiritual health.

Some reviewers report Dr. Bob’s health guide brought relief from their child’s ADHD, reversed their greying hair, and healed their acne and psoriasis. Dr. Bob, like the green smoothie authors I mentioned in an earlier blog, promotes drinking plenty of water; avoiding caffeinated coffee, tea, and soft drinks; and eating more vegetables and fruit.

In the past few weeks, I have seen my psoriasis improve, my weight drop, and my nails grow stronger and longer. I have given up cheese and regular milk (I use unsweetened almond milk), and found relief from my sinus congestion. My daily joy is to learn and share my journey’s blessings and recipes toward health.

My albondigas recipe uses my new found vegetable—chayote squash. It’s pronounced chä-yō-tā. I hope you try and enjoy the recipe.


4 Tbsp. Oil
1 minced onion
1 clove minced garlic
2 quarts chicken broth
½ cup tomato sauce
1/2 lb. fresh or frozen peas
2 large sliced carrots
½ lb. fresh or frozen string beans
2 potatoes, peeled and diced
1 chayote squash, peeled and diced
2 tsp. Everglades Seasoning or an all-purpose seasoning of your choice.

    Do you use Japanese rice? Raw rice or cooked? I have seen recipes for Albondigas before but you are the first person I could ask the Japanese rice? question too! I love a good one-pot meal!
