Share recipe:

Overly sweet desserts are so overrated. These truffles (or blondies depending on how you make them) are the perfect combination of light sweetness and savory decadence. This satisfying recipe was provided by the Hippocrates Health Institute Pastry Chef Rentate Wallner.

As with all of our desserts there is no added sugar and it’s totally raw!

15 Tips for Balanced Nutritional Meals – Hippocrates

It is important to increase the proportion of raw food in your diet to a minimum of 80% by weight. The rest of your diet should be carefully selected and optimally prepared to be of minimal challenge to your body. The following are some guidelines:

  1. Breakfast ideas: Juice one lemon in 16 ounces of water. Follow 15 minutes later with a green juice, or diluted fruit juice. Take your supplements with this drink. If you feel that you need more, wait 30 minutes and toast some sprouted rye bread, cook some soaked millet, or have an unsweetened single grain cereal with grain milk. Remember that you are ‘breaking your fast’, so green juice, lemon water and a 2-ounce shot of wheatgrass juice are always best first.
  2. Salads: Eat two large salads (50% sprouts) every day. When you prepare salads, make enough for two meals. Do not add salad dressing until you are ready to eat the salad. Use only Program approved dressings.
  3. Salad dressings: Choose either avocado, soaked nuts or seeds (sunflower, pumpkin, sesame) or recommended cold-pressed oil with your favorite herbs. Add the following to taste: pressed garlic, kelp, dulse, Bragg Liquid Aminos or Nama Shoyu (wheat allergy sensitive).
  4. Spaghetti sauce: Make a fresh raw red bell pepper sauce by blending the peppers with herbs and spices, as you would for conventional spaghetti sauce. To thicken, you can add some psyllium husk. Let sit for some time so that the flavors can mix, or heat to under 115°F (42°C), if you must.
  5. Sea vegetables: An important source of organic minerals, especially iodine. Try soaking alaria, arame, dulse, hijiki, kelp, kombu, nori and wakame; which can also be used in soup preparations – both raw and cooked.
  6. Dips: Hummus and guacamole are tasty and easy to prepare.
  7. Avocado: Limit use to 2 or 3 times per week. Consume no more than 1 medium avocado per meal.
  8. Soaked nuts/seeds: Use a handful at 2 or 3 meals during the week. You can also use them to make loaves, burgers and sauces.

Best Cooked Foods

  1. Hot Cereals: Kasha (buckwheat), quinoa, millet, and teff (tastes like oatmeal). Soak before cooking.
  2. Grains: Amaranth, buckwheat, millet, quinoa and teff. Soak before cooking. Add vegetables for additional flavor.
  3. Pasta: Soba (100% buckwheat) noodles are delicious.
  4. Beans: Chickpeas, lima, pinto and Northern white. Soak before cooking.
  5. Lightly Steamed Vegetables: Broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, green beans, kale, leeks, fresh peas, rutabaga, summer and winter squashes, sweet potatoes, turnips and yams. Avoid the nightshade family: tomatoes, bell peppers, eggplant and white-flesh potatoes.
  6. Baking Vegetables: Winter squashes, sweet potatoes and yams. Again, avoid the nightshade family. Warm Soups: Blend a combination of raw and steamed vegetables in a blender with some water. Season to taste. Heat slightly, warmer than body temperature if desired. You may use warm water in a Vita-Mix, when blending the vegetables, to make the soup warm.
  7. Snacks: Air-popped popcorn or frozen bananas made into ice cream.

Nobody likes wasting food. But nearly all of us do it. A lot. And this isn’t just about a few spears of broccoli left on your plate after supper. Food waste is a massive problem that threatens our climate, our air and water and soil, and our ability to grow enough food to feed humanity for future generations. And the good news? There’s a lot you can do about it.

The Statistical Insanity over the Media and Government’s Response to Coronavirus

Commentary by Brian Shilhavy
Editor, Health Impact News

The one thing I love about math are its absolute values to show truth, as opposed to science which really cannot prove anything. See:

Mathematical Proof vs. Scientific Proof: Are They the Same?

This is one of the best commentaries and analysis on the current Plandemic I have heard so far. This is my first exposure to Larken Rose, but he has a great way of communicating logic and good sense into the phony response by the media and their fear mongering that is over COVID-19 that is very refreshing!

FOCUS and FEAR (Covid-19)

If others can control your FOCUS and AWARENESS, then they can control your perceptions, fears and behaviors.

How to Make Veggie Sushi from Forks Over Knives

Sushi is easy to make at home, and it’s a super-healthy option for snacks and meals. Plus, you can get creative and max out on your favorite plant-based fillings. Here’s how to make and roll your own vegan sushi.

Select and Season the Grains 

No, you don’t need specialty rice to make sushi. Any short-grain rice type will work, as will other small whole grains such as quinoa, millet, barley, and bulgur.

description
MASTER PLANT-BASED COOKING WITH FORKSChoose one of our two fun, flexible at-home cooking courses. Courses begin June 16.

The real secret to tasty sushi rice and grains is the seasoning. This master recipe provides that perfect balance of sour and sweetness with a touch of salt—the flavor profile that gives the grains their “sushiness.” Be sure to use the optional arrowroot powder or cornstarch with non-rice grains, as it will help them stick together.

Master Recipe: Sushi Rice (or Other Grains)

  • 2 tablespoons brown rice vinegar or distilled white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1½ teaspoons arrowroot powder or cornstarch, optional
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, optional
  • 2 cups hot cooked brown rice or other whole grains

Stir the vinegar, maple syrup, arrowroot (if using), and salt into 2 cups of hot (just-cooked) grains. Cover, and let stand 15 minutes so the grains absorb the flavors. Cool until easy to handle, then use to make sushi.

Hello friends!

Understanding that the powerful urges we have to eat food that is not good for us (fat, sugar, meat, cheese) come from strong evolutionary forces that were hardwired into our bodies millions of years ago helps us make sense of why we are drawn to these foods today.

We evolved in an environment of scarcity and our bodies were designed primarily to SURVIVE UNTIL REPRODUCTION in a variety of challenging environments.  But one environment in which our bodies appear to have no ability to adapt is an environment of continual dietary excess with ready and cheap access to high calorie, nutrient-poor food on a continual basis.

Here are a couple of short videos that explain this phenomenon very well: 

Addictive foods-Dr. Neal Barnard, sugar, cheese, dairy

Aaaand, here’s my favorite pickled red onion recipe:

A small amount of sugar used as flavoring (as this recipe does) is generally acceptable on a WFPBD for non-diabetics.  Likewise with salt used in moderation.
Hope y’all have a good week.
