    • I am so excited to watch Dr. Oz this Wednesday.  The show will feature the documentary

      FORKS OVER KNIVES

      (What is this?  Check out here & here or their website:  www.forksoverknives.com )

       

      Dr. Oz will feature most of Whole Food Mommies HEROS: 

      T. Colin Campbell, Caldwell Esselstyn Jr., Neal Barnard & Rip Esselstyn.

      YEAH!!!

       

      I am hoping that I won't be disappointed...it always seems when this way of eating is featured on a major talk show- it doesn't seem to go as I know it could.  I am hoping Dr. Oz will do it justice.

       

      Want to know what OPRAH thinks about Forks Over Knives?  Check out this video on her website:

    • Have you been to the ZOO lately?

      I recently went to the ZOO with my children this past month.  I don't think I like the ZOO very much it turns out... (but my kids sure love it!)

       

      As we walked past a leapard walking back and forth I asked myself..."So when does this animal get to run...like it would in the wild?"

       

      I am hoping there is a type of treadmill or something that they use to help the animal get his exercise...the exercise he was created for- but I'm not keeping my hopes up.

       

      Then my mind turned to the animals DIETS...Are these animals eating the DIETS that they were meant to eat?  I remember hearing about some Gorillas found in Zoo's across the nation where researchers were finding heart disease.  How does that happen?

       

      I found a very cool article on DISEASEPROOF.com all about these Gorillas.  Gorillas in the WILD show NO sign of this disease...what is causing it in the ZOO's?

       

      Check out the article HERE...

       

      Did you know that following chimpanzees, gorillas are the closest living relatives to humans?  Differing in only 3% of our genetic makeup.

       

      Do you think we have such a high rate of heart disease for the same reason these Gorillas do?

      (if you didn't catch my scarcasm...OF COURSE it's the same reason!!!)

      CHECK OUT THE ARTICLE :)  And have a wonderful day!

    • Veggie Sushi with Collard Greens

    • VEGGIE Sushi with Collard Greens


      These are suprisingly yummy and so much fun to make!  You can substitute any veggie you want...it's fun to try new veggies & flavors of hummus.

      To be honest- by 4 year old hasn't dared try them- but he sure watches his older sister almost eat the whole plate.  I am just hoping she will rub off on him sooner or later.  But even if this recipe isn't one for your children's liking... make is just for you- you can never eat enough dark leafy greens :)

       

      Ingredients
      • 1 bunch collards
      • 8 tablespoons hummus
      • 2 green onions, chopped
      • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
      • 1/4 red pepper, cut in thin strips
      • 1/4 small cucumber, cut in thin strips (skin optional)
      • 1/4 cup shredded carrots
      • 1/2 lemon


      Directions:
      1. Put about 2 inches of water in a large frying pan and bring to a boil.
      2. Choose 4 of the nicest collard greens. Lay them flat, cut off the thick stem at the point where the leaf begins then pile them on top of each other in the boiling water. Cover and cook for about 30 seconds to a minute. Collards are pretty tough and don't easily break apart when cooked. Their flexibility makes them a perfect wrap.
      3. Drain then lay flat on a board or counter with the thick part of the stem facing up.
      4. Down the center spine of each collard leaf place a row of about 2 tablespoons hummus, sprinkle with green onions, cilantro and shredded carrots. Place thin red pepper strips and cucumber strips on top.
      5. Start with the side nearest you, flip it over and gently roll into a sausage shape.
      6. With a sharp knife, cut into as many small pieces as possible. You should be able to get six or more pieces, but it will depend on your collard size.

      EAT & SHARE & ENJOY!
