Doc says get the blood pressure down or else - medication. Don't want any meds, so going with low carb / non-genetically modified foods. It may be that when G.M. foods enter the body, our immune system doesn't recognize them so it over reacts by attacking & causing inflammations throughout which leads to many serious diseases (just a hypothesis for now, we'll see). This recipe AIN'T too hard to take tho, regardless if it helps lose a few lbs. it's del-ish-io-so. :)
