Less For Better Health

To avoid sickness eat less; to prolong life worry less.
– Chu Hui Weng

Studies have shown that eating less prolongs life. It makes sense since the digestive system is probably the most overworked system in the body today. Did you know that digestion uses the more energy than anything else you do, especially when eating a conventional food (S.A.D.) diet. Ever get tired after a large meal? It’s your energy being directed to digesting your food.

Eating a living food diet, and eating less, lessens the burden on your digestive system and lets it work normally… allowing your body to run more efficiently and last longer.

Similarly, by letting go of the things in your life that you have no control over, and stop worrying, you free your energy towards better health and wellness.

To your best health!

What We’re Eating Now, Delicious Appetizers

Posted on January 15th, 2006 in Uncategorized by Vegan Raw Diet Advocate Comments Off on What We’re Eating Now, Delicious Appetizers

Appetizers are great, especially when they’re delicious and raw! Here’s a wonderful dish inspired by Living Nutrition Magazine… “Poppers”.

Here’s what you’ll need:

1-1/2 cups of sun dried tomatoes (soaked)
1 cup of macadamia nuts
Basil (about 10 leaves)
2 zucchini
1 pint large cherry tomatoes

Here’s how you make them:

First, soak the sun-dried tomatoes for about an hour. Drain and save the soak water. Process the macadamia nuts in a blender or a food processor. Then add the sun-dried tomatoes. You’ll want a nice pate-like consistency. If it’s too thick, add the soak water slowly. Lastly add the basil and finish processing.

Slice zucchini with a madolin or peeler into long, thin strips. Add the pate and roll up the zucchini slices. Scoop out the middle of the cherry tomatoes and fill them with pate. Arrange on a plate and garnish to your preference.

These were a real hit over the holidays with my family and friends. Great for veggies and meat eaters alike (you might even inspire a few friends).

Enjoy!
