Soybeans. Lentils. Beans. Nuts.
NATO/US trying to carry out a stealth invasion of Russia with NATO’s relentless expansion eastward and this Ukraine fiasco. Historically, Europe attempted to conquer Russia twice and failed both times. So now this attempted political encirclement.
One wonder about Americans hanging the Ukrainian flag if they really understand what’s going on here?
Ultimately, it is just going to turn Russia toward China and India, and it will mean much higher energy and food costs for Europeans. And, of course, it is turning Russia into a hardened enemy of both Europe and the US — Russia, a country chock full of nuclear weapons.
Time erases everything and eveyone.
What Is Healthy Cooking?
No-oil and no-salt cooking. Minimize saturated fat and cholesterol. Zero refined sugar. No rationalizations and no excuses.
Close enough is never close enough.
Roasted Sweet Potato, Oil Free
Chop up the sweet potato into bite-sized cubes but definitely keep the skin — it has a lot of the nutrition. First, coat the cubes with a very liquid Tahini. Then, sprinkle on a generous amount of Ceylon cinnamon — the best cinnamon because it doesn’t contain a pathogen common to the other cinnamons.
Cook in the oven for 40 minutes at 400 degrees. Delicious both warm or cold.
US Foreign Policy
Instead of promoting wars around the world, US foreign policy should focus on doing things that actually benefit other countries and their citizens — a foreign policy focused on benevolence. Ultimately, that would also be in OUR best interest.
Old Age and Digestion
If you are into your 60s and 70s, it would be a good idea to take a digestive enzyme pill with your primary meal, as these enzymes decrease with old age, so that without a supplement, you are getting much less value from the food that you eat because it doesn’t get thoroughly digested for lack of digestive enzymes.
Yet another problem with old age and digestion is that the hydrochloric acid produced by the stomach to breakdown food decreases with old age, so that food — and proteins in particular, which are more complex compounds — don’t get broken down as efficiently by digestion in the stomach for lack of this acid, which is another reason why the old should increase the amount of protein in their diet somewhat to compensate for this inefficient digestion. A sprinkle of lemon juice on your salad would help here with digestion in the stomach.
When Winter’s on the Prowl
Cholesterol-Free Scrambled Eggs
The entire container of Trader Joe’s Liquid Range-Free Egg Whites (250 calories) — put it into a blender with a generous amount of nutritional yeast (that appealing eggy taste) and some black salt (that foul eggy smell). Large assortment of leafy greens (Kale, Spinach, etc.) diced to very small sizes. Steam a wide assortment of mixed vegetables. Chives.
Start with one large diced sweet onion in a heated pan until it starts to brown, then add diced garlic, and then some vegetable broth or avocado oil spray to prevent sticking. Once that onion/garlic combination has cooked sufficiently, add the egg whites and stir occasionally as it solidifies. As it comes close to being fully cooked, add the leafy greens and the chives, and mix them in well. Just before you finish cooking, add all the vegetables and mix well.
Eat it with Ezekiel Sesame toasted bread with a generous coating of clover honey.
