Black Bean Brownies

Blackbean BrowniesOne would think that black beans and brownies should not be said in the same sentence, but surprisingly someone discovered that they work!

Chocolate and black beans are among the Top of the Antioxidants list.  And some medical professionals considered beans a Superfood. But this is a dessert and moderation and portion control is key. But make a batch and freeze a square or two in individual zip lock snack bags to grab for those times when you might need a quick little chocolate fix! Continue reading “Black Bean Brownies”

Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are well known in North America as being the hair and other growing parts of “Chia Pets.” But they are actually a very nutritious food source used by the ancient Aztecs and still today in South America. These Superseeds are high in fiber (42% in one 1 oz serving), omega 3, calcium, protein, and tryptophan (the sleepy amino acid as in turkey!). Since Chia seeds can absorb up to 12 times its own weight, Dr. Oz has recommended them to boost weight loss because they can expand to help suppress appetite. Dr. Oz also recommends them to promote sleep because of their tryptophan content. There are many ways to eat them, sprinkle on cereals, salads, and yogurt without much noticeable flavor. Here’s a website devoted to 40 Ways to use Chia Seeds.

Dr. Oz: The Headlines Are Wrong. Organic Foods Are Healthier and Healthier For Our Kids. Aren’t Our Kids Worth The Extra Money?

Blueberries10-4-2012 Dr. Oz weighs in on the new study making the headlines that imply that organic food may not be healthier than conventional food. Researchers at Stanford found that organic foods have the same nutritional value as conventional foods, so the media headlines question if organics may not be worth the money. Dr. Oz says there is a glaring catch to this information.  The study seems to put more weight on the nutritional value of food and not as much concern for the toxic chemical pesticides that we consume in some of these conventional foods. He feels that the pesticides in food is a threat to our children’s health.  Dr. Oz believes that eating organic foods is one of the best ways to avoid exposure to this health threat and therefore organic food is worth the investment!

Ground Nuts – A Quick Prescription Recipe For Health

Ground-NutsDr. Joel Fuhrman, well known physician who coined the acronym G-BOMBS, say that seeds and nuts (the ‘S’ in G-BOMBS) are an important part of getting healthy. Compounds in seeds have been shown to prevent certain types of cancers like breast cancer.  Nuts provide those heart healthy Omega 3 fats.  He suggests we “eat at lease 1 ounce of raw seeds and nuts per day. Have one half ounce or one tablespoon of Chia seeds, Sesame Seeds, Flax or Hemp seeds. The other half ounce should include Walnuts…or any variety of other nuts like almonds, pecans, pistachio, macadamia etc.”  But we will not get the full benefit  if we do not chew them well. Our bodies cannot absorb nutrients from a big chunk of nut sitting in our gut! So grind your nuts for those days when you are rushing out the door and don’t have time to “Count your chews!”  Two large dinnerware soup spoon fulls of this ground nut mixture is about an ounce.  Sprinkle one on your breakfast cereal and one on your lunch salad and there you go! On your way to better health! Continue reading “Ground Nuts – A Quick Prescription Recipe For Health”

Wheat Germ

Dr. Oz considers wheat germ a Superfood. It is the nutrient dense kernel of the wheat plant that is unfortunately removed to make white flour!  It is loaded with B vitamins and fiber and has a very mild taste. That’s why Dr. Oz recommends it for those trying to lose weight. The B vitamins plays a role in boosting metabolism of fat.  It also keeps our mood in check by producing mood chemicals in our brain. The fiber content in wheat germ helps keep blood sugar in balance as well as promoting healthy bowel movements. Because of the mild taste, it is easy to incorporate into our diet. Dr. Oz suggests adding 2 tablespoons of wheat germ to yogurt, cereals, your favorite smoothie, salad dressings, meatloaf, meat and fish breading and more.
