Years ago, Craig and I were at a Greek restaurant called Shish on Grand Avenue in St. Paul, MN. Craig had the kabobs with garlic dip. It was the most flavorful dip and the owner said it was just mashed garlic. I’m not sure if he was telling the truth or not because when I looked up “Greek Garlic Dip” what I discovered was that this dip was called Skordalia and is made with potatoes.
I held another Maximize Your Metabolism presentation and I can’t believe we had such a packed house again! You all are so wonderful! One question I had was, how do you get potassium if I don’t recommend bananas or potatoes (especially if someone has high blood pressure!)? Well, dried herbs have WAY more potassium without any of the sugar/starch. And in second place is the avocado!
There is some controversy about the use of Tamari (soy) sauce in the traditional dish, Chicken Adobo. This is a tasty Filipino dish; some believe that soy sauce was too much of a Chinese influence and therefore use coconut milk instead. That is how I made this recipe and personally, I prefer the taste this way!
