Lo Mein, a traditional Chinese dish has become also an American favorite. You can find it in almost any Chinese restaurant in the US and often is offered with the addition of meats or seafood.
This is such an easy recipe to make at home (you can always exchange for local, seasonal vegetables) and can feed a family of four for only a few bucks! It is also a cool lunch box item (remember to get your reusable chopsticks at our shop in Miami Shores!)

Yep! That's right, the Colon is such an important part of our digestive system, part of its job is to move out the residue of our body(by this I mean the stuff that our body does not need). Keeping the Colon working at its full potential also aids in preventing Colorectal cancer which is seen more and more in industrialized countries like the USA. When the Colon cannot "pass" the garbage out, it can irritate the cells that cover its inside lining, when this happens, the possibility of damaging these cells and creating a toxic buildup can lead to dangerous polyps. Over time, some colon polyps can develop into colon cancer, which is often fatal when found in its later stages. The good news? By adding more fiber, water, Vitamin A & D (from real foods) and healthy bacteria we can help to keep it healthy. The following recipe has all of the "good stuff" to keep your Colon going so go ahead and share it with your family and friends. At the Real Food Academy, we love to keep our community healthy! Paella is considered one of Spain's national dishes, depending on the region it can be made with seafood, meats or a mix of both. At the Real Food Academy we like to prepare it with Black Rice or Sorghum, just precook the rice or sorghum in the broth (keeping about 1 cup for step # 5) and top with Kalamata Olives and Artichokes for a cool flavor profile! This recipe does not miss having the meat to be a really good "chili". However, you can always add ground turkey if you can't live without. The combination of flavors make it a winner!
