• Chopped banana peppers
• ¼ Cup Chopped black olives or Kalamata olives
Optional spices: Pinch of garlic salt (or fresh garlic), lemon pepper and red crushed chili pepper
• ¼ (approximately) cup crumbled feta cheese
1. Lightly brown the Quinoa and Pumpkin Seeds in a little olive oil or sesame oil
2. Add the usual amount of water 2:1 (and left over mushroom juice if you wish)
3. Stir in all ingredients except feta cheese
4. Once the Quinoa is done lightly stir in crumbled feta cheese and serve.
Tips: (If canned mushrooms are being used, reserve the juice to substitute for some of the water). If you use fresh mushrooms you may need to add a little extra water
About Quinoa: Prounounced keen-wa, Quinoa has ancient origins dating back over five thousand years to the mighty Inca civilization of South America. The Incans referred to it as the “Mother Grain”. It is high in protein, fiber and “good” carbohydrates. Red Quinoa has a distinct red and burgundy coloring and texture and is farmed in the Andes Mountains.

We believe our lives are based on traits
Handed down to us it becomes our fate
While some is true we can’t deny
All of it I cannot buy.
We may share our habits or our looks
But the story of genetics can be shook.
Have you heard “We are what we eat”?
Start with fruits and vegee’s and not so much meat!
Look and see me in that picture there
I once was so fat that people would stare.
I was able to break the chain
And take back my life once again!
Laurie was born in Orange County Ca. Her family moved to Tawas City, Mich. in 1967. At the age of 13 she met her husband, they married in 1977 and moved to FL in 1979 in search of greater opportunity. Her husband formed G.W. Schultz Tool, Inc. in 1989 and soon after left Real Estate to serve as the companies Vice President and Secretary.
When Laurie’s Mother was diagnosed with liver cancer she became her caretaker & began searching for things that could help. It wasn’t until after her death that she read Kevin Trudeau’s book on Natural Cures and that began her own journey toward taking control of her health. A few yrs. later her Sister died of colon cancer thus furthering her passion to learn about cancer and overcome the difficulty of sharing with others what she was learning.
Laurie was introduced to Jean Sumner and Traci Brosman while attending one of the health talks in Clermont FL and found World Wellness Education to be a great start toward educating others and enjoys volunteering for events and helping to make a difference. As a part-time distributor for Juice Plus Laurie donates 100% of her profit to World Wellness.
