How To Make Your Own Vegan ‘Meat’

How To Make Your Own Vegan MeatThis ‘meat’ is a lot healthier than any animal flesh in the world! It’s yummy and healthy and you can use it in so many ways!

For example: in sandwiches, as a dumpling filling, to enrich your salads, in burritos, tortillas and many more…

What you need:

  • 4 cups canned or cooked black beans
  • 3 spoons olive oil
  • 2 peeled and diced onions
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbs cumin seeds, toasted and ground
  • 2 tbs apple cider vinegar
  • salt to taste
  • Optional: 1 tbs (or more – it’s up to your taste buds!) cayenne pepper (if you like it spicy!)

What to do:

  1. Saute the onions for about 5 minutes, until soft.
  2. Add all the other ingredients BUT the black beans. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. Puree the black beans in food processor until smooth and add to the mixture.
  4. Stir until all is blended and warm.

Now you have a delicious vegan ‘meat’ – you may eat it as is, but it will be much better to add it to many other dishes in different variations.

Enjoy!

Neeva KedemAbout Neeva Kedem: Couple of years ago my life took a nice turn when I became vegan. It happened after my 40th birthday; I kind of realized that my health and energy are not as they used to be, and that change is needed. After reading lots of researches and studies, I understood that eating healthier food that is based on plants and natural ingredients will be the best for me, and so I did. It didn’t happen overnight; first, I gave up red meat. Then chicken, which was very hard for me. And only about a year later – cheese and eggs. Today I can say that being vegan improved my health and energy levels, and that I love being vegan!

Absolutely Fabulous Vegan Breakfast Broccoli Muffin Recipe

Breast Cancer Vegan Broccoli Muffin RecipeVegan broccoli muffins are great with a bowl of soup or a green salad! Crumble one of these healthy and delicious muffins right into a cup of Hearty Barley and Shiitake Soup  (or one of our many cancer fighting soup recipes). Yet these are equally smashing as a savory start to your day.

You can use frozen (thawed) or fresh broccoli, so use what is most convenient for you. Quick breads should be quick, so the main thing is to keep it simple. That said, feel free to use almost any chopped fresh or frozen vegetables in place of the broccoli–think kale, Swiss chard, cauliflower, corn, eggplant, squash–that suits your fancy.

Thrown a handful of vegan cheese in here, too, but it is your call–the muffins are equally yummy without it. If you do opt for cheese, be sure to cut it into cubes instead of shredding. That way you get the bubbly bursting blobs of cheese. By contrast, shredded cheese tends to disappear into the batter without delivering a noticeable, cheesy punch. Always use organic ingredients when possible.

Ingredients:
  • 1-3⁄4 cups flour (many healthy options to all purpose flour)
  • 1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 2-1⁄4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp vegan granulated sugar (or healthy sugar substitutes)
  • 1⁄2 tsp Pink Himalayan Salt
  • 1-1⁄4 cups plain non-dairy milk (almond, rice, hemp)
  • 1⁄4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1-1/4 cups finely chopped broccoli
  • 3⁄4 cup chopped green onions (scallions)
  • 1 cup shredded vegan Cheddar-style cheese alternative (optional)
Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper, foil or silicone liners.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking powder, sugar and salt.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, oil and mustard until well blended. Stir in broccoli, green onions and cheese (if using).
  4. Add the broccoli mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just blended.
  5. Divide batter equally among prepared muffin cups.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes, then transfer to the rack. Serve warm or let cool.

A healthy diet is only one of several factors that can affect the immune system; exercise and stress management are just as important in improving your overall health and well being.

Why Smoothies are Better Than Juicing

Smoothies Betters Than Juicing Breast Cancer Yoga BlogStudies such as a recent Harvard School of Public Health investigation found that the consumption of whole fruits is associated with a significantly lower risk of type 2 diabetes, whereas fruit juice consumption is associated with a higher risk, highlighting the dramatic difference between eating whole fruits and drinking fruit juice. Cholesterol serves as another example. If we eat apples, our cholesterol drops. On the other hand, if we drink apple juice, our cholesterol may actually go up a little. Leaving just a little of the fiber behind—as in cloudy apple juice—was found to add back in some of the benefit.

We used to think of fiber as just a bulking agent that helps with bowel regularity. We now know fiber is digestible by our gut bacteria, which make short chain fatty acids (SCFAs) out of it. SCFAs have a number of health promoting effects, such as inhibiting the growth of bad bacteria and increasing mineral absorption. For example, experimentally infused into the rectum of the human body, SCFAs can stimulate calcium absorption, so much so that we can improve the bone mineral density of teenagers just by giving them the fiber naturally found in foods like onions, asparagus, and bananas.

Our good bacteria also uses fiber to maintain normal bowel structure and function, preventing or alleviating diarrhea, stimulating colonic blood flow up to five-fold, and increasing fluid and electrolyte uptake. The major fuel for the cells that line our colon is butyrate, which our good bacteria make from fiber. We feed them, and they feed us right back.

If the only difference between fruit and fruit juice is fiber, why can’t the juice industry just add some fiber back to the juice? The reason is because we remove a lot more than fiber when we juice fruits and vegetables. We also lose all the nutrients that are bound to the fiber.

In the 1980’s, a study (highlighted in my video, Juicing Removes More Than Just Fiber) found a discrepancy in the amount of fiber in carob using two different methods. A gap of 21.5 percent was identified not as fiber but as nonextractable polyphenols, a class of phytonutrients thought to have an array of health-promoting effects. Some of the effects associated with the intake of dietary fiber in plants may actually be due to the presence of these polyphenols.

Nonextractable polyphenols, usually ignored, are the major part of dietary polyphenols. Most polyphenol phytonutrients in plants are stuck to the fiber. These so-called missing polyphenols make it down to our colon, are liberated by our friendly flora and can then get absorbed into our system. The phytonutrients in fruit and vegetable juice may just be the tip of the iceberg.

For those that like drinking their fruits and vegetables, these findings suggest that smoothies may be preferable. I can imagine people who eat really healthy thinking they get so much fiber from their regular diet that they need not concern themselves with the loss from juicing. But we may be losing more than we think.

Why are polyphenol phytonutrients important? See, for example, my video How to Slow Brain Aging by Two Years

Not that fiber isn’t important in its own right. Check out:

Both – apples and cinnamon – have tremendous healthy benefits, and I assure you that this dish will be satisfying.

* 1 cup of frozen slices banana
* 1/4 cup of frozen blueberries
* 1 tbs maple syrup (or honey for those of you who are using it. In this case please use organic honey)
* Handful wall nuts
* Couple of fresh blueberries to put on top

Blend all the ingredients in a strong blender until you get a nice, smooth and super delicious ice cream! If your blender is not too strong, you may need to stop it from time to time and mix everything manually, and then blend again. It’s important that all the nuts will blend into the ice cream.

You may add the fresh blueberries on top for taste and garnish.

Miso Quesadillas

Miso Quesadillas Recipe

By: Breast Cancer Yoga Staff.

If you are already enjoying a primarily plant-based diet, we recommend that you continue with this healthy eating pattern. Eliminating chicken and fish while adding in more plant-based proteins sounds like a perfectly healthy plan. We recommended trying our plant-based recipes for a healthy lifestyle diet. Also, be mindful to supplement or seek fortified foods, as needed.

 For one serving (multiply ingredients appropriately for more servings)

  • 2 whole wheat low-fat flour tortillas
  • 2 Tbsp hummus made with extra garlic
  • 1 teaspoon brown miso
  • 1/4 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 small tomato, chopped into bite size pieces
  • 1/4 cup shredded vegan cheddar cheese

Directions:

  1. Spray a griddle or non-stick fry pan with a little cooking spray.
  2. Spread the hummus and miso on one tortilla.
  3. Layer other ingredients on top, with cheese being on top of the pile.
  4. Top with other tortilla.
  5. Brown both sides on the griddle or pan until cheese melts to hold it all together.
  6. Cut into 4 pieces.

Serve with some salsa, fresh fruit, bean salad, and enjoy!

A healthy diet is only one of several factors that can affect the immune system; exercise and stress management are just as important in improving your overall health and well being.
