Yucca with Mojo Sauce

One of my favorite dishes. Yucca is a delicious root vegetable – much like a potato – which is rich in carbohydrates, fiber, folate, vitamin C, and potassium. Yucca is also known as Cassava root. The Mojo Sauce adds a lemony-garlic flavor to top it off. Thanks to my aunt Isabel for this recipe.

Let me know if you like this recipe. Enjoy!


Peel and clean 1-1/2 lbs of fresh Yucca root, halved and in chunks. Boil in water for about 5 minutes. Pour in cold tap water to shock it into softness (“El Susto”), continue to boil until tender to a fork.


1 teaspoon salt
1 lime juice
6 garlic cloves
1/2 cup olive oil
1 onion, chopped fine

Mash garlic cloves into salt with mortar and pestle (or use food processor).

Add garlic, lemon juice, and onions to olive oil in a separate pan, heat until bubbling, then pour over yucca.

Toss yucca & sauce “lightly” cooking to saute over medium heat; till barely brown but not CRISP!

Clean and Unclean Foods

Clean and Unclean MeatsDoes science support the Bible’s claims regarding clean and unclean meats and other types of foods? Watch this interview by Walter Veith, professor of the zoology department at the University of Cape Town.

Professor Veith concludes that the original plant-based diet is still the healthiest type of diet to eat.




“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. Even before He made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ  to be holy and without fault in His eyes. He predestined us for adoption to Himself as sons and daughters through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of His will.” – Ephesians 1:3-5


What does it mean to be a Christian? Most people think it is simply a matter of joining a church. However, it’s a lot more than that – it’s a whole way of life.

A true Christian is a disciple and follower of the Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, he is concerned that his entire life is patterned after the example that Jesus gave us. How we think and speak, and how we behave, will determine whether we are successfully living as a disciple of Christ.

Our primary goal at Chosen of God Ministries, Inc. is to bring you sound biblical teaching and spiritual guidance that will help you to be a successful disciple of Jesus Christ – the only way that leads to eternal life (John 14:6).

We invite you to follow us as we follow Christ, by taking advantage of our regional seminars, Bible study tools, publications, and Internet media presence.

As you do, we pray that you will deepen in your relationship with God the Father, through Jesus Christ our Savior and Lord.

“Now as Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Simon who was called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. And He said to them, ‘Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.’ Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.” Matthew 4:18-20

Our Mission

We are a non-denominational, non-sectarian ministry proclaiming the good news gospel of Jesus Christ to all nations, tribes, tongues and people in obedience to our Lord’s Great Commission.

“Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” – Matthew 28:18-20

Health Ministry

That you may prosper in all things.

The apostle John wrote in his third epistle:

“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.” – 3 John 2

We believe Christians are called by God to prosper not only in spiritual matters but also to enjoy good health, happiness, and long lives.

A strong mind, body and soul begins with a nutritious diet and physical exercise. Without this foundation, we cannot experience the full blessings of God. Since the Bible tells us that our bodies are the temple of God, it is especially important that we take good care of our health. We will not be very effective in service to God and ministry if our bodies become sick and worn out.

Let us teach you how to be in good health.

Health, Healing & Faith Ministry is a trusted outreach to help you enjoy maximum health through faith-integrated nutrition and wellness teaching, training, and guidance.

HHFM provides health education, as well as integrative healthcare and wellness strategies for living blessed and thriving lives according to biblical principles. We accomplish this through church seminars, classes, personal coaching, and print and digital media resources.

Each seminar, class, or each counseling session becomes a seed that God will plant in your heart to help you grow into a fruitful tree for the Lord and enjoy the “life more abundantly” Jesus spoke about in John 10:10…

“The thief comes not, but to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: but I have come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”

The “thief” is Satan who’s purpose is to keep you in ignorance of good eating habits and steal your health through sickness.

HHFM provides education on the following topics:

  • Nutrition
  • Weight Loss
  • Exercise
  • Lifestyle habits
  • Stress Management
  • Mental Health (anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, sleep disorders, etc.)
  • Social Relationships (singleness, marriage, family, etc.)
  • We also collaborate with healthcare practitioners and like-minded organizations, to improve the quality of life and overall well-being of individuals.

We want to help you become the very best person God created you to be.

Our heavenly Father knows how easily we can be
deceived into following the bad health habits
and destructive lifestyles of the world – especially when it comes to eating. That’s why He admonishes us:

“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” – Romans 12:1

Our Health Coaches are supportive mentors and wellness authorities who will personally work with you to help you feel your very best through food and lifestyle changes. Instead of prescribing one diet or way of exercising, our Health Coaches tailor individualized wellness programs to meet your specific needs and reverse the effects of sickness and disease in your body.

The Church Needs Health Coaches

Doctors don’t always have the time or resources to help their patients build healthy lifestyle habits, so Health Coaches are needed to fill the void in our churches and healthcare system.

Here are some sobering facts:

– Nearly 30% of all Christians are obese or overweight

– Medical doctors provide little or no nutrition counseling during office visits.

– 70% of Christian deaths are caused by chronic illness each year due to poor diet, lack of exercise, and the affects of an unhealthy lifestyle. Diabetes, heart disease, and other destructive illnesses can be reversed with diet changes, exercise, and other natural means.

Invite us to speak

We will be happy to bring this health message to your church or prayer group. All we ask is for a love offering to be taken to sustain our labor for the Lord.

At Health, Healing & Faith Ministries, we want to help more people experience true wellness of mind and body.
