OK, as I made what appears to be my last lone road trip to Madison until Grubster comes to Minneapolis, I was listening to the CD set from the IfHI 2005 conference. An important point made by Dr. D was that we should focus less on avoiding the avoids, but more on adding in the beneficials. This morning I took this advice to heart and finally busted open the Whitewave Sea Veggie Tempeh that has been sitting in my fridge for the past month.
Wow! I really like tempeh! In fact, I could almost say that I'm in love! And you know? It has such a nice texture and taste that I would almost be tempted to say that it is a perfect A substitute for potatoes! One word of advice is to follow the package directions which suggest frying it in a little butter (I used ghee) or oil (I added a little sesame). Also add a clove of garlic and coriander (which I unfortunately do not have as a sole spice right now). Then add soy sauce. Fantabulous, I say! Fantabulous! This is such a nice morning substitute for eggs for those of us trying to mix it up a little bit and get a few less animal products in our diet.
Back in college, I tried preparing some tempeh on a kabob with my college boyfriend. I must have done something terribly wrong because it just did not come out right, and since then I've found the experience difficult to re-try tempeh. I am pleased to say that my aversion is permanently disabled!
Another great place I've had the pleasure of visiting recently is Intelligent Nutrients (www.intelligentnutrients.com). At an insightful presentation made by Horst Rechelbacher, I was able to meet Horst himself as well as other members of his corporate staff. He inspires me tremendously because he sees corporations' role in the health of people and the planet as the solution, not the problem. Clearly, his teams are headed the right direction at Aveda and Intelligent Nutrients. So many beautiful and healing products are available at the IN. The essential oils are to die for! (As I'm sure many people have in ancient times but we won't go into that direction this blog.) The IN sells many sustainable wood products (incense made with sandalwood, etc.). Beautiful tea and coffee products.
Well, I've been to many other places recently to eat, but I've been really focusing on buying my first home right now. Bear with me if you don't see many blogs or if I appear to not be responding to questions....
And PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, if you asked me a health question, PLEASE do not leave it in the comments section of this blog page. Read the above header intro blog if you have not already. Go to the forum if you have a question. I have an account on the forum. Please leave only COMMENTS in the comment section. If you wish to contact me directly, you may email me at email@example.com as another option. But because of the way my computer is set up currently, HELP ME HELP YOU! and go directly to the forum to ask myself and others questions.
Thank you again for reading and enjoy the summer solstice and full moon in capricorn today!
