Found out today that pumpkin was a fruit!

I wish I wish I wish I could get addicted to vegetables!

Topper,

A fresh carrot is the best. Better than toast for breakfast!

Herbs and spices make vegetables come alive. Get to know Rosemary and Thyme, , Garlic, Onions . . .

With just a very little grass-feed stew meat, lots of portabella mushrooms, celery, carrots, purple potato . . . and all those great herbs and spices simmering away, it's nearly time for my gourmet stew.

Frozen berries are thawing in the oven for dessert.

Cardamom, Curry, too, are great to remember-- there is no end to the spice trail.

Interesting possible connection between insulin resistance and Alzheimer's in Mercola's article.......

You know, I can't speak to the cognitive aspect of fruits and veggies, but I can tell you things that definitely improved when I started eating a lot more raw vegetables and fruits, and some locally-raised beef and lamb......

1) Big improvement in night sweats - I hardly have them anymore unless I eat processed foods.

2) Virtually no burning, stinging, pricking sensations in my feet. Again, all it takes is a day of wrong eating and I'll start to experience these again.

For me, frozen vegetables (cooked) or cooked veggies of any kind do not seem to have the same benefit. For me, it has to be raw. Not ALL raw, mind you, but at least one meal consisting of 80% raw foods.

Just thought I'd pass that on.....

Pretty busy on it.

Daaaaark choclate version.
Light Chocolate version.
Regular brew Starbucks chocolate cabbage coffee.
Instant brew Starbucks chocolate cabbage coffee.

Tough to get the chem engineers and organic farmers to brainstorm together. They are so buzzed from all the chocolate and caffeine !

And goofy from that. They keep wanting to listen to that John Prine song "It's a Big Old Goofy World".

keebler's posts always make me really hungry!

truthfinder, are you on a raw diet? I am, mostly, except for some lean meat, brown rice, and sometimes a healthy cooked meal. It seems to help my stomach if I can stick to it and get enough sleep.

No, not 100% raw, twinkle. I find that I really don't feel all that well without a little meat, chicken or fish. But nearly all my fruits and veggies these days are raw.

And for those meat items, I've been buying mostly locally-raised beef and lamb. Just trying to eliminate as many 'contaminants' as I can with animal products.

Truthfinder you are right on.

Meat itself is not the problem. It is the chemical crap from synthetic hormones, pesticides, dead cow parts (fed to other cows) etc that poisons us.

If IDSA doctors are so concerned about over-use of antibiotics and the effect on our communities, they should be fighting the beef industry's use of them. Livestock of any kind that is mass-consumed, actually.

Tis the greatest culprit of them all. Necessary antibiotic use for patients is NOT.

But, there will be no holding our breath on that one.

How about if we hold IDSA heads underwater so they have to hod THEIR breath ?

Any volunteers ?

Waterboarding for IDSA? Good thinking! Sometimes harsh measures are justified.

Before anybody starts `fighting the beef industry' over the antibiotic issue, I think a viable alternative has to be found. I'm sure it is the USDA regulations that have led to the routine use of abx in cattle. Obviously, a bunch of sick cattle processed for human consumption isn't the answer.

And I wonder if cattle are now more susceptible to disease after decades of abx use?

One thing about `grass-fed' beef if anybody wants to go that route..... It probably won't taste like what you get in the store. It's hard to describe the difference but before you buy any quantity of it, try it first. (Frankly, it tastes much like the local elk meat I've eaten.)

If you want it to taste more like what you're used to, you'll have to find a rancher that brings the cattle in off the pasture and grain-feeds them for a few weeks. Whatever the cattle eat before they are butchered will dictate the taste of the meat.

As for lamb, I grew up eating grass-fat lamb so I don't know what store-bought lamb even tastes like. And unless you are used to lamb in general, you probably won't like it.

I believe this! There is an article I just read about eating a vegan diet (or vegetarian diet). I am trying to eat as many servings a day of fresh organic vegetables and fruit. Juicing helps with that too if you have the energy......

I have always felt better with some animal protein but the more I read, the more I think I am going to try to live without it - or eat only very very small amounts......

I also read that 80% of fish in the US is imported from other countries - pretty scary - so I try to buy only wild fish like from Alaska if possible....Farm Raised is supposed to have problems.

When you start reading about our food sources, there are some very scary articles out there now.... I go to the Farmers Market as a way to force myself to get out of the house and get healthy food at a reasonable price. Thanks so much for posting this article. I love nutrition articles.

I know Luvs2Ride swears by a vegan diet. She eliminated most or all of her joint pain simply with diet. She has Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Many thanks Robin. I like to laugh, especially in the morning, and your post worked really well for that.

Will there be riots if ladies get addicted to the Chocbage ?

And is one of the health benefits the fact that I won't get my head ripped off.......

Yes, I believe there will be a run on the item once the word gets around.

It also might induce some reflection in other manufacturers of cabbage products, as in if they too would like to consider some flavor-tweaking.

Sauerkraut that's not so sour? A special little extra theobromine kick on those hotdogs?

What is it with the head ripped off biz? Someone doesn't like you eating cabbage?
