The second topic of conversation related to the health benefits of green tea.  This was a continuation of Nancy's call from yesterday.  Green Tea has a high concentration of Catechin found in it.  This is a type of polyphenol, which is a powerful antioxidant found not only in green tea, but also in garlic, fruits, potatoes, and some varieties of nuts.
Among the several types of catechin that exist, Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCg) is the most powerful antioxidant, and green tea contains much more EGCg than any other kind of tea.

We also continued our discussion from yesterday on lab-grown beef (I'm having trouble even thinking about this one). This Cultured "meat" has already been dubbed "Franken-meat" or even "schmeat". Even if you oppose using animals for food, having someone conjure up something in a lab for the public to eat sends a chill up my spine.

The last topic for today asked the question "Is GM corn responsible for causing epidemic of debilitating, inexplicable disease symptoms?"

Ornish Spectrum

The Spectrum By Dr. Dean Ornish


Listen to Call   July 24, 2013   Betty moderated the call today.  We continued today to talk about Dr. Dean Ornish and some of his thoughts relating to his book "The Spectrum".  Dr. Ornish says foods are neither good nor bad, but some are more healthful for you than others.  You have a spectrum of choices.  The Spectrum is based on love, not willpower.  It's about feeling good, not just avoiding feeling bad.  Joy of living, not fear of dying.  Losing weight and gaining health.  What's sustainable is pleasure, feeling good, and freedom of choice.

Char talked about a conference she and JoAnn went to last night.  She said that drinking 1 ounce of wheat grass juice is like eating 3 pounds of vegetables.  She also said that sprouted sunflower seeds are great to eat and gave information on how to do the sprouting.  Great information!

We also talked about eight telltale signs you've eaten toxic food.  Click on this link:  http://www.naturalnews.com/041302_toxic_foods_symptoms_MSG_headache.html

Listen to Call   July 22, 2013   Char moderated the callElaine started off the call with a question about the book Eat 4 Your Type written by Peter J.D'Adam with Catherine Whitney.  Char didn't feel it has much merit when it comes to working with a plant based diet. I on the other hand (Steve, who was not live on the call), have found it to be a great reference when trying to identify which foods MIGHT be causing me some issues. I feel its suggestions have been correct about 80 to 90 percent of the time for Carol and I

Listen to Call   July 17, 2013   Call was moderated by Betty.  Gave a bunch of great recipes 

How do you feel about Congress caving into the livestock industry and stopping the promotion of a weekly vegetarian menu option?  Obviously there will be no support from this group to promote meatless Monday's.  This article from Forks Over Knives was part of our discussion this morning.
http://www.takepart.com/article/2013/06/25/meatless-mondays-get-axe-capitol-hill?cmpid=tp-ptnr-forksoverknives
Nancy gave us her delicious and simple (three ingredients) chocolate recipe and I gave  recipes for Homemade Clif Bars and Coconut Almond Fudge.

HOMEMADE CLIF BARS
15-17 pitted dates
1 cup almonds
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 - 3/4 cup water
Preheat oven to 350*. Grind up the oats and almonds in the food processor.  When they have a crumbly consistency, add the dates and coconut.  Lastly add the water slowly as you pulse the ingredients together until a batter forms.  It will be thick and sticky. Line a small 8"x8" pan with parchment paper leaving enough paper sticking out on each side so you will be able to lift the whole thing out when done.  Working carefully, spread batter evenly out to all sides.  Press mixture down with a spatula to get it firm. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes.  Let cool completely before removing intact.  Cut bars with a pizza cutter.  Store in the fridge.

COCONUT ALMOND FUDGE
1/2 cup almond butter
1/2 cup coconut butter
2 T maple syrup
1 T coconut oil
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. almond extract
In a saucepan, combine all ingredients.  Stir on medium heat until everything is combined.  Pour into molds and store in the fridge to set.  Should take 1-2 hours.  Makes about 15

From the recent Forks Over Knives newsletter:
 
 
The American Institute for Cancer Research recognizes The China Study and gives credence to the research done in it!

In speaking about vegan or vegetarian eating, Char reminded us to say "whole food, plant based" because it would be easy to fall into just eating non- animal processed foods and claim to be vegan or vegetarian, and they have minimal health benefits. We want to "Eat To Live"  which is where micronutrients come into play and those micronutrients are found in  G-BOMBS....that is Greens, Beans, Onions, Mushrooms, Berries and Seeds, says Dr. Joel Fuhrman.

Eggs are the most inflammatory food you can put in your body.

A refreshing summer salad.....Jeannie's favorite of the moment is  Green Bean Potato Salad.  Prepare as follows:

Cook 1 lb. cubed  red-skinned potatoes in boiling salted water 10 minutes; add 1 lb. trimmed, cut green beans; boil 5-8 minutes. Drain. Toss with 2-3 Tblsp. olive oil, 2 Tblsp. red wine vinegar, 1 cup thin wedges sweet white onion, and 1 cup cherry tomatoes.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  YUM!

How To Make Your Own Bone-Healthy Version Of This Common (And Toxic) Personal Care Product

Are you aware that conventional deodorants contain a lot of toxic chemicals that can harm your bones? This was the topic for today.  Vivian Goldschmidt, MA tells us the concept behind "antiperspirants" is not healthy for us and she tells us how to make our own bone-healthy version of this personal care product in the link above.

Mary Lou told us about her findings to help with the pain of wasp stings and we discussed using the Immunity to help with her allergic reactions and doing a strength test to determine the dosage she might need.

Research finds red meat linked with Type 2 diabetes article from post-gazette newspaper, written by David Templeton.  Can you believe 150 million hot dogs will be eaten on this week's holiday?  This information comes from The American Meat Institute.  If placed end to end the dogs would extend from New York City to Los Angeles nearly six times, or more than halfway around the world.  The Fourth of July represents one of the top days of the year for meat consumption with Americans consuming on average about 3,500 hot dogs per second from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.  In the week leading to the Fourth of July, Americans typically buy 190 million pounds (95,000 tons) of red meat, nearly equal to the weight of the USS Enterprise aircraft carrier and 700 million pounds (350,000 tons) of chicken, nearly equal to the weight of the Empire State Building.  And we wonder why we, plant based eaters, are asked.... Where do you get your protein???

Part of our conversation today included a recipe for sourdough starter so here it is:
SOURDOUGH STARTER
1 (.25) oz. pkg. of active dry yeast
2c. warm water (110 degrees)
2 c. flour (I will be using spelt for my flour)
In a large non-metalic bowl, mix together dry yeast, 2 cups water and flour.  Cover loosely and leave in a warm place to ferment 4 to 8 days.  Place a cookie sheet under it in case of overflow.  Check occasionally.  When mixture is bubbly and has a pleasant sour smell, it is ready to use.  If mixture has a pink, orange or any other strange color tinge to it, THROW IT OUT! and start over.  When using starter to bake, always replace with equal amounts of flour and water.  If you use 1c. of starter, replace with 1c. of water and 1c. of flour.  Mix well and leave out on the counter or in the oven until bubbly again (leaving the oven light on helps with the fermenting).  If a clear liquid has accumulated on top (and it will) don't worry, just stir this back into starter.  feed once a week with 1c. water and 1c. flour.  Allow to rest at room temperature several hours after feeding.  Starter can also be kept in the refrigerator if you won't be using it for an extended period of time.

We opened the discussion today with what sounded like a great salad.  I will be making this on Friday so I'll let you know how it turns out.

Edamame Rice Salad
2 cups cooked long grain rice, season with some salt
2 cups cooked and shelled edamame
2 small cucumbers, peeled, seeded,and diced
1/2 cup finely diced celery
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
sea salt to taste
chopped fresh mint to taste
1 cup micro sprouts
2 ripe avocados, peeled, and diced

Wasabi Vinaigrette
1/2 cup sunflower oil
1/4 cup rice vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
Wasabi paste to taste
Directions:
Put the oil, vinegar and sugar in a bowl and whisk to combine.  Add the Wasabi to taste.

In a large bowl, combine the cooked and cooled rice with the vinaigrette.  Add the remaining ingredients, adding the avocado just before serving.  Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve immediately.

Two recipes caught my eye in the July/August Vegetarian Times magazine.  The first was on page 56, called Lau Lau.  This recipe used whole collard leaves as a wrap, much like what Char mentioned on a previous call.  I thought the filling for this recipe, however was quite unique using sweet potatoes, spinach, coconut milk green onions, red pepper flakes and smoked paprika.  The second recipe was on page 69.  Stuffed Eggplant with Lentils and Millet.  Ingredients that sound yummy together.

Last but not least we talked about an article in the April/May AARP magazine.  "Kr. Oz's Handbook for Healthy Living.

Obesity has been labeled as a disease by the American Medical Association! Listen in to today's call for a lively discussion.

Kenzen VITAL Balance is a solution offered by Nikken, along with eating the right foods.  The word VITAL being a key word.
How many calories does it take to gain a pound? What is the vegetable that contains the most sugar? What are we really ingesting throughout each day?  These are some GREAT questions!

Diesel fuel is in the news in relation to Autism!  If you live near freeways, etc. rates are higher for pregnant women to have Autistic Children.  Air Wellness anyone???

Black Bean Burgers From:

Listen to Call   6/19/13 Call   Betty moderated the call. Growing concerns regarding "Modified wheat found in Oregon" was the article from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that opened our discussion.  Farmers are beginning to fight back with law suits since the GMO wheat is invading their wheat fields.  Monte read us an article giving a little background as to why Monsanto is in such a hurry to accomplish their agenda.

Recipe for Black Bean Burgers by Katelin Mae and found on Forks over Knives website was presented.
1 cup cooked brown rice
1 15oz. can black beans
1/2 onion, diced
1/4 cup corn
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. chili powder
1/4 cup cornmeal
2 Tbls. salsa

Drain black beans (I would also rinse).  Pour beans into bowl and mash using potato masher, fork or your hands.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lay parchment paper on a cookie sheet.  Sweat the onion in a saute pan using no oil.  When onions are translucent add corn and spices.  Cook for a few more minutes.  Add cornmeal, salsa, veggies, and rice to the bean bowl.  Mix everything together so there is an even consistency.  Form into patties about 1/2 inch thick and 3 inches in diameter.  Place patties on parchment lined pan and bake 15 minutes @ 350 degrees.  Flip the patties and bake for another 15 minutes.  Serve between two leaves of romaine lettuce with tomato and onion.

Kenzen Vital Balance additionally 3 servings per week helps remove heavy metals from your body. Taste gets quite addictive. Letting it sit and cool in the fridge a couple minutes after mixing improves the taste also. Monte talked about the benefits of Green Beans and having lots of laughter in your life.  Personally, I like both!

Listen to June 5, 2013 Call   Betty moderated   Today we began the call talking about Monsanto and the marches that took place over the weekend and the lack of coverage in most areas.  We also mentioned that Dr. Fuhrman had been on the Dr. Oz show and that June is Men's Month at Dr. Fuhrman's.  In Dr. Fuhrman's newsletter he wrote about the benefits of lycopene as an extremely potent antioxidant.

The Nikken kick-off call was discussed and we were all delighted that the KVB promotion of selling 3 and get 1 free was extended until the end of 2013 and that the Joint has a new formulation for the U.S.

Last but not least we spoke about Oregano being a very healthy culinary choice having powerful antioxidant and antibacterial properties. Char mentioned that she took Oregano oil capsules for a particular issue and was amazed at how quickly they worked. Jeannie gave us a website for a recipe for Tomato, Avocado, Quinoa Salad with cumin and cilantro.   michelledudash.com


Mango, Avocado, Jicama Salad with Lime Dressing

6 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 
4 1/2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 1/2 teaspoons honey or agave

1/4 tsp. salt and pepper to taste
Shake vigorously in a jar until completely combined.
Taste and adjust if needed.
Store in fridge until ready to use .... Shake before pouring
 FOR THE SALAD
1/2 head dinosaur kale
6 oz. baby spinach
1 avocado
1/2 lb. jicama
2-3 mangos
1/2 lime, juiced
3-4 Tablespoons green onion, chopped

black sesame seeds, optional
Stem and chop kale and place in large bowl
Roughly chop the baby spinach and mix with the kale
Peel the jicama and slice into 1/4 inch matchsticks
Cube or slice mango, removing skin
Slice the avocado and toss with a bit of lime juice to prevent browning.
Right before serving toss the greens with 1/2 to 2/3 of the dressing coating well.
Top with avocado, jicama, and mango and drizzle more of the dressing over top.
Top with green onions and black sesame seeds and serve.

LEMON CREME
1 12.3 oz. pkg. reduced fat, extra-firm silken tofu, crumbled

1/3 cup light maple syrup or agave
3 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 Tablespoon grated lemon peel
I used a fork to kind of shred the tofu out of the container and into the bullet adding the rest of the ingredients and blending until completely smooth.

Refrigerate until chilled.

The Vegan Before Dinnertime Diet, Pt 1

Vegan Before Dinnertime


Listen to Call   May 1, 2013 Call was moderated by Betty. She shared this review by email: On today's call we discussed the Dr. Oz Show with Mark Bittman, the author of VB6 (Vegan 'Till 6 Meal Plan). The program has just one,simple rule: Avoid meat and dairy from breakfast until dinnertime. Instead, load up on foods that are packed with nutrients, not calories - fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, oils. When dinnertime rolls around, however, you can eat whatever you'd like. The plan is easy and doesn't require a lot of sacrifice. 

We decided that is just what the public is looking for, but not exactly what will work for us.  It is a far cry from the doctors we follow (Fuhrman, McDougall and Caldwell Esselstyn). Our goal is better health, not just another diet!
We also spoke about exercise and what effect it has on the heart, the brain and the whole body.  Information that came from Dr. Joel Fuhrman.
Thank you Betty.
