Episode: 122 Food Addiction Continued

Ep: 122 Food Addiction Continued

Today’s episode features the book called Salt, Sugar, Fat by Michael Moss and Food Junkies by Vera Tarman and Phil Werdell.  These books are excellent companions for anyone wanting to beat back their food addictions. I also discuss my recent 28 days of a 30 day challenge of not adding salt to anything I cooked or ate and I made myself extremely aware of all salt and sodium in the foods that I wanted to eat.  The experiment has made me want to continue.

Ultimately, I am wanting you too to explore the reasons you eat what you eat and to open your mind to the possibility that food does not have to be hyper charged to be delicious.

Episode 121: Exploring Our Diet and Health Journey

Ep: 121 Exploration of Diet and Health

Today’s Episode is about looking at two perspectives one in dealing with weight loss and health and the other is combating disease and health. Each are on the path of dietary discovery.

I briefly talk about fad diets like Atkins and Low Carb and I talk about the evolution of dietary discovery.  I introduce the book that treats heart disease; Reverse and Prevent Heart Disease by Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn. This book has 8 rules to follow. I do believe that the case studies in this book will show that you can reverse heart disease.

Episode 120: The Big Question

Ep: 120 The Big Question

Today’s episode is about questioning why we do not explore information that can truly help us. I explain what I mean by talking about a man who had several signs of heart disease, leading down the road of several medical procedures to include surgery and when his doctor finally told him that the must prepare for death he turned to God. It was then that someone asked him if he had read the book How to Reverse and Prevent Heart Disease by Dr, Esselstyn…. The man said he knew of the book but he had not read it.

So, my question is why do we wait until the very end if ever to open a book with the answers right there on the cover? And why are so many of us willing to listen to the guy next door and follow his diet without one second of personal research? Why do we accept low carb diets as legit without educating ourselves first?  Why do we get so invested in diets that have temporary results and are often dangerous?

I only touch this subject today, but I will revisit this topic many times.

Episode 119: Food Addiction

Ep: 119 Food Addiction

Today’s episode is a little bit about the book The Pleasure Trap by Douglass Lisle and Alan Goldhamer and I talk about eating food in order of caloric density. Meaning that we would eat your greens first, then your broccoli, then your cauliflower, the your potatoes then your beans. That way we are getting the most nutritious foods first and filling up on the lowest calorie foods before eating our favorites that usually contain more calories per cup or per pound.

We discuss some of the Pleasure Trap, but mostly its and introduction to the book wanting you to get it, read it and study it. I am still reading it myself, hence the introduction.

I also talk about my 30 day challenge of no salt starting tomorrow. I encourage anyone wanting to reset their taste buds to do the same. If you can’t do 30 days, that’s okay, try any amount of time 3 days, a week, a few weeks. The reason we need to do this is to begin the process of really looking at our foods. So that ultimately, we can be healthy in mind body and spirit. And get back to a healthy weight.

Episode 118: Exploring Plant Foods For Better Health

Ep: 118 Exploring Plant Foods For Better Health

In today’s episode we explore Dr. John McDougall’s Book, The Starch Solution. Last week, we looked at SOS which is looking at salt, oil and sugar added to our diets aiming to reduce or eliminate.

This week, we’re exploring starch as a solution to better health. We go over calories in several of the most common starches such as potatoes, rice, lentils, beans and corn. We look at how a person could create satisfaction by adding starch to every meal.

Mcdougal’s suggestion is to have 50 percent of each meal in starch to create satisfaction while consuming the other 50 percent in whole plants such as broccoli, cauliflower, carrots etc.

I recommend getting his book and really exploring this way of eating. I also recommend going to his website and exploring his free content

After going over some of his book, I share a faux nacho cheese recipe to put on top of vegetables.

No Cheese-Nacho Cheese Recipe

Roasted Red Bell Pepper Oat Cheese

2 cups roasted red bell peppers

1 Small Sweet Yellow Onion

1 Package Silken Tofu

1/2 Cup Nutritional Yeast

1 Tablespoon Miso Paste

Episode 117: SOS

Ep: 117 Tracking SOS

Today’s Episode is all about tracking Salt, Oil and Sugar. I go over how money and food management is of the same vein in that they both require attention, measure and action. Tracking is the first step towards making changes. Those small little changes can become the very secrets to your success.

As much as this step may seem impossible or truly difficult, let’s try together to start looking at what we are doing so that we can add value in all the areas that matter the most.

Episode 115: The Best Four Kitchen Gadgets

Ep: 115 The Best Four Kitchen Gadgets or Tools

Today’s episode is about making life easier in the kitchen. I talk about my new favorite toy, The Instant Pot, The Vitamix, The Crockpot and the Food Processor. I love these gadgets or tools. It’s like they are my best friends of the kitchen.

I go over a couple recipes like my favorite tomato soup in my Vitamix, its so easy, cut up roma tomatoes until Vitamix is almost full, add a half of an yellow onion, toss in a half of a serrano, some salt and pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and a 1/4 of one vegetable bouillon cube, if you can find fresh dill about a hand full. If not its nice to add some dried dill, but the soup is good without it. And finally, the secret ingredient is about a quarter cup of cashew nuts or macadamia nuts. You can add more, it will be thicker and more calorie dense if you add more. Run the Vitamix for about 5 or 6 minutes on high. PERFECTION!

I also go over my love of these gadgets, but my take away message is to eat at home as often as you can so you know what is in your food and you eat better. It is also cheaper and fun.
