:idea: Speaking of Veggie Burgers ... again

Who knew?! For spaghetti "meat sauce" ... :roll

Increase barley grits to 1 2/3 cups (for more firmness),
briefly fry thick slices of the chilled barley in olive oil with
Italian spices, and cut into small pieces for faux meat;
gently stir into a prepared & heated spaghetti sauce.

For vegetarians, this faux meat sauce with its great texture
convinces that real meat sauce is faux barley sauce. :roll:

Re: https://draxe.com/nutritional-yeast/

"Since our bodies can only absorb so much of any one nutrient at a time, and since you need B vitamins dispersed throughout the day to help your body convert food to energy, it is recommended that you add just a teaspoon of nutritional yeast to foods at each meal."

:bana: A good summary of the health benefits of nutritional yeast.
(probably best considered as a condiment or shake ingredient)

"Antibacterial, antiviral immune-booster" suggests important
preparation for increasing world health problems. ;)

I have always enjoyed the taste of the versatile black bean and just this week I was looking for a bean salad recipe of just this sort, Rod. Thank you...you must have read my mind. :sunflower:

And thank you for the information and suggestions for nutritional yeast. Will look for it this week at the health food store. :thumright:

:idea: Re: Nutritional Yeast

I had just posted a review with a "cheese" sauce recipe*
when I read that nutritional yeast is great on popcorn: :roll
drizzle on virgin olive oil, then sprinkle nooch and salt.
Apparently, lickin' the bowl is traditional. :roll:

* https://www.amazon.com/review/RNJHPQLFQWVBL/

"Nooch" is a popular vegan term for nutritional yeast.

:idea: Re: Nutritional Yeast

Hmmm ... some nutritionists suggest a serving size of 1 tsp
so this would not be a major source of B vitamins ...
but still a flavorful condiment. 8)

Coconut Caramel Sauce

Post by Sandy » Sat Jun 17, 2017 3:30 am

I am thinking of making this today as a sort of spruce up topping for some sugar free cookies I made a day or two ago. They are" oatie" more like a soft oat topping and really missing something (LOL sugar! :roll: ) But this sauce, used sparingly will probably do the trick and make a tasty treat to boot.
This recipe can be found, along with a whole bunch of other goodies at... http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2017/0 ... ipe-vegan/

Coconut Caramel Sauce

Total Time: 1h 10m
Yield: about 2/3 cup Print This Recipe 5/5
Ingredients

13.5 oz coconut milk (Coconut-free recipe here)
1/3 cup pure maple syrup, honey, or agave (vegans use the maple or agave)
1/4 cup brown sugar OR simply increase the above liquid sweetener to 2/3 cup
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
optional 1 tbsp butter-type spread or coconut oil, for richer flavor
Instructions

*Use the brown sugar (or coconut sugar) if you want more of a caramel flavor; however using all liquid sweetener still yields delicious results. Make sure to buy full-fat canned coconut milk, not lite or coconutmilk beverage.

Combine all ingredients except the vanilla extract in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Let it boil for around 3-4 minutes, stirring continuously, then lower to a simmer. Let it simmer—stirring as needed—until it cooks down to about half its volume and thickens. This usually takes around 50-60 minutes, depending on your climate, stove, and the fat content in your particular can of coconut milk. Turn off the heat, stir in the vanilla, and let it sit for about an hour. Cover and refrigerate overnight – it continues to thicken as it sits.

Zucchini Banana Bread (no flour)

Post by Sandy » Sat Jun 17, 2017 3:44 am

Here's another one I found on the Chocolate Covered katie website. It is for all of you with gardens and an abundance of Zucchini and also great for anyone avoiding wheat and processed sugar.
http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2016/0 ... flourless/

Zucchini Banana Bread

Total Time: 35m
Yield: 9x5 loaf

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups rolled oats (260g)
1 cup mashed banana (240g)
1 cup finely grated zucchini, loosely packed (200g)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup oil OR milk of choice
1/2 cup pure maple syrup, agave, or honey
1 and 1/2 tbsp vinegar
optional 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 F, and grease a 9×5 loaf pan very well, making sure to go up the sides. Put the oats in a blender and blend until a fine powder forms. Add all other ingredients (except optional chips) and blend until smooth. Stir in chips, if using. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, then bake on the middle rack for 35 minutes. Turn the oven off, but DON’T open the oven. Let the bread sit in the closed oven for another 10 minutes. Then remove from the oven and let cool completely before going around the sides with a knife, then inverting onto a plate.

:sunflower: About coconut oil (accumulated research) ...

Re: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/artic ... efits.aspx

"Ketones appear to be the preferred source of energy for the brain in people affected by diabetes, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and maybe even ALS, because in these diseases, certain neurons have become insulin resistant or have lost the ability to efficiently utilize glucose. As a result, neurons slowly die off.

The introduction of ketones may rescue these neurons and they may still be able to survive and thrive. In multiple studies, ketones have been shown to be both neurotherapeutic and neuroprotective. They also appear to lower markers of systemic inflammation, such as IL-6 and others."


Re: http://thescienceofeating.com/2017/05/2 ... ily-basis/

I'm not sure why "applying coconut oil" is beneficial (this would improve skin health), but consumption is probably the important part of this alzheimers cure. As for treatment, Notes: (below) may be the better starting point for experimental treatment; and creating two control groups would make this testing "authentic".

Notes: MCT Oil is concentrated coconut oil; a combination of extra virgin coconut oil (for lauric acid benefits) and MCT oil (for beneficial ketones) may promote better health, including better brain function. (about 1-4 tsp, daily)


Re: https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/2015/1 ... xtremists/

:cheers: Excellent discussion about coconut oil!

Analysis: 1-2 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil (EVCO) per day is safe, healthy consumption.
Ignore MCT oil marketing hype since this oil is expensive and has nutritional limitations.


:roll Try a Banana + Coconut Oil taste/nutrition treat (1/2 small banana + 2 tsp EVCO)

Thanks Rod, I've spent about an hour looking into these websites and articles and am feeling inspired! (a good thing... :bana: )
It is just what "the doctor" ordered. ;)
I think G and I will incorperate some of Doctor Mercola's dietary advise.

:roll An MCT blend containing lauric acid and only coconut oil.
Somewhat expensive but not for a daily tablespoon. ;)
