I NEED TO FIND A HEALTHY, CHEESE REPLACEMENT!
Sorry, my daughter does not like the Vegan Cheese with pasta. And Nutritional Yeast has lead in it. Some more than others. Problem is, Dr Greger's research is for the USA, not the UK. Like Dr. Greger mentions, it is best not to have lead in your diet. Is it OK to consume in moderation?
My Vegan friend tried to make cheese using plants. It tasted like jelly when cold. But when cooked, it was not bad. But I have a fussy child. So need to play around with the recipe.
10 baby tomatoes
1 red onion
2 cloves of garlic
1 teaspoon of mixed herbs
1 bowl of whole grain pasta
(Distilled water to cook pasta)
1 cup of cheese (trying to find a cheese replacement)
Dr Greger talks about Nutritional Yeast, and it's lead content in some brands:
Inhibiting Platelet Activation with Tomato Seeds
When you cook tomatoes, they do not loose their nutrition. YES! More than six tomatoes a day are better for you!
Inhibiting Platelet Activation with Garlic and Onions
Shame, you loose nutrition when you cook garlic and onions. Best make those dips!
My Houmous recipe is not perfect. But it gives you an idea of how you can get garlic into your diet without cooking. I am sure Dr. Greger's cook book will have some great recipes.
Looking at how healthy they eat, took me on a journey. Especially, as my friend is an ex nurse. She warned me that, "Asthma inhalers destroy your health!" (If I need the inhalers, because I have eaten something that makes me wheeze, I take it, and recommend you do the same). But I have managed to get off my inhalers, and keep a health diary; keeping track of what makes me ill, and what does not!
Thanks to Google, and You Tube, I found Dr. Michael Greger. Now, I am waiting with bated breath for Dr. Greger's, "How not to die COOK BOOK" to come out. Then I can really get working on their health.
Although, this recipe is not perfect. I need to find a healthy cheese replacement. I have made progress. Instead of buying the jars of pasta sauce, I make my own, which has health benefits. Preservatives are so bad for us. And I have managed to make whole grain pasta taste nice. She would not touch whole grain pasta before, so I am very proud of myself.
OVER TWO YEARS AGO I WAS OVER WEIGHT, AND IN REALLY BAD HEALTH. NOT A VERY GOOD ROLE MODEL FOR MY DAUGHTER. I HAD TO CHANGE FOR HER! I AM NOT PERFECT. THERE ARE TIMES WHEN I GO OFF THE WAGON. BUT I MAKE SURE TO GET BACK ON. ONCE I GET DR. MICHAEL GREGER'S COOK BOOK, I KNOW IT WILL BE A LOT EASIER! "I AM A JUNK FOOD ADDICT!" THERE, I SAID IT!
I HOPE MY PARTNER GETS MY HOW NOT TO DIE COOK BOOK SIGNED FOR ME, FOR CHRISTMAS! I AM SO EXCITED! To think, I used to hate cooking.
HOW TO GET GREENS INTO YOUR FUSSY KIDS!
My daughter, Melody, is very, and I mean, very FUSSY!

Message from You Tuber:
Yeast, barley, malt extract, hydr' protein, natural flavourings = ALL MSG. MSG IS TOXIC TO THE BRAIN...an ExcitoToxin, kills brain cells. ALL manufactured gravy powders have this.....it disguises rubbish taste by tricking the taste buds to thinnk the food is DELICIOUS.
