Fried Cactus January 24 2016, 0 Comments

Fried Cactus.
This is an easy way to enjoy fresh nopal cactus.
Fry some potatoes up whatever way you like. diced, sliced.... add some onions too.
When the potatoes are almost done add some cactus and stir it with the nearly cooked ingredients. Give it a couple of minutes. Our cactus does not need a lot of cooking if you even cook it at all. There's no need to cook our cactus until it becomes dark in color, eat it fresh and alive and bright green!
For another cactus treat you can add eggs to the 'water-cactus-onion mix and scramble them in. When the eggs are cooked spoon the mix into warm tortilla shells and have them as breakfast burritos.

PRICKLY PEAR CACTUS by Web MD January 20 2016, 0 Comments

Web MD is a good source for health news. Here they discuss Nopalea cactus which many of our customers say helps control their diabetes.

Prickly pear cactus is used for type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity, alcohol hangover, colitis, diarrhea, and benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). It is also used to fight viral infections.

How does it work?

Prickly pear cactus contains fiber and pectin, which can lower blood glucose by decreasing the absorption of sugar in the stomach and intestine. Some researchers think that it might also decrease cholesterol levels, and kill viruses in the body.

Dr Oz discusses how the Nopal cactus (Prickly Pear Cactus) helps treat diabetes January 17 2016, 0 Comments

Dr. Oz uses some funnels and such to illustrate how it is thought eating cactus helps control the flow of sugar into the body, and thereby help relieve some of the symptoms of Type II diabetes for some people.

Many of our customers say that eating just a little of the cactus every day or two helps maintain their proper blood-sugar levels. I'm not a doctor, so I have to rely on the doctors (and customers) to know these things.

A cute Mexican accent and a fine dish of cactus!
Our cactus is easy to prepare though... not as much knife-work and learning as the spiny cactus has.
