June 26, 2013 Call

Listen to Call   Wednesday June 26, 2013   Betty moderated the call. 

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.

June 20, 2013 Eating Consciously versus Mindless Eating....

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.

Listen to Call   June 14, 2013 Call moderated by Monty.   Talked about Probiotics and which Nikken Products have them. 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 Call   June 12, 2013   Betty moderated call. How many foods do you know that have caffeine in them? Maybe more than we are aware of. A newspaper article we discussed today states that the FDA is wary as more foods contain caffeine. How about caffeinated maple syrup over caffeinated waffles? Check it out on our call.

Oneta gave us a recipe for No Bake Chocolate Almond Bars that sounds delicious. Thank you Oneta!

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.
