Cumin Beef!

Lacy preparing hot pot
Mountain Palace Weekly Special
Cumin Beef with Green Pepper, Onion & Rice
Cumin is a tasty spice that creates a unique and wonderful flavor. It is considered highly medicinal and has been used for millennia throughout Asia and the Middle East. As an energy booster, cumin is a great source of iron, which helps to maintain healthy energy levels. Iron improves blood flow throughout the body to increase oxygen delivery on a cellular level. Regarding cancer prevention, cumin has been found in studies to have potent anti-cancer properties. This is probably thanks to its free radical fighting properties. Free radicals can contribute to cancer development and growth, so consuming foods and herbs that fight free radicals can help to prevent cancer and other illnesses. Cumin is beneficial for the digestive system, helping with the symptoms of nausea, indigestion, diarrhea, and flatulence. Cumin contains “thymol”, a compound that stimulates stomach acid production and allows the body to get maximum nutrition from food. Cumin increases the heat in the body, boosting the metabolism as well as improving kidney and liver function. This can help the body get rid of impurities, which will decrease the chances of disease in the body.Getting rid of toxins within the body can also reduce the incidence of skin problems. Breakouts such as blemishes, rashes, and boils are usually a result of the body trying to remove waste in the body and using cumin may reduce these symptoms because the waste is efficiently taken care of through the digestive system. In addition to increasing energy, cumin may also be beneficial for lactating mothers because it may help to increase milk production.
Come to Mountain Palace this weekend to enjoy this happy healthy taste treat! You may also enjoy our regular menu items as Hot Pots, Miracle Dumplings, Chicken Cashew, Hui Guo Rou, Fish with Vegetable, and flavorful Healthy Soups.

Understanding Karma - Tsai Wenchin


Living one’s spiritual Self in the karmic life environment primarily requires an ATTITUDE CHANGE in living – from the habitual “I am my physical body and its history” to the new master “I am the inner spirit, currently responsible for living my physical body and its history.” Such a change will not happen to last for long unless one’s motivation is right and also strong enough. After listening to the previous five presentations of “The Mystery underlying Human Living – Karma,” a motivation out of “Yes, I want to do it” will not work for the change; only a strong motivation out of the awakening mind to realize “I should do so” may work continuously until the final spiritual enlightenment. Belief, aspiration, practice, and achievement (periodical progress) are the four cycling steps that may continuously help strengthen our right motivation and also know how to make genuine progress in the spiritual level. Mr. Tsai will guide us to study these four steps in his next presentation for us on September 13th (Tuesday) at 2:00 PM
