I made this last night and it came out very well. To make it truly fatfree, you need to leave off the peanuts. (But I was bad and ate the peanuts–they added a lot to it!)

This recipe is great because it doesn’t require any ingredients you can’t get at a regular grocery store. Even meat eaters like this one, and it’s very hearty.
This is pretty hearty and easier to make than the long list of ingredients implies.

My favorite pasta recipe is a creamy basil sauce over any kind of pasta.
Arrange the noodles on, and garnish with sesame seeds and chinese parsley.
1 pound spaghetti
1 pound vegetables — cut for stir-fry (can use frozen vegetables; I like a mixture that includes broccoli and carrots) …

Today, beans are generally seen as a side dish (barbecued beans)–or the province of vegetarians. People tend to think of them as bland and boring, and cooks often add meat […]
- Luscious Oat Bars with Orange, Kale and Carob Fudge ToppingYears ago when I read Dr. Barnard’s book Foods That Fight Pain I remember learning that food intolerances can change. That seems to be very true in my case. When I first started eating this way 7 years ago I couldn’t eat garlic or ginger. Now I eat them every day. Several winters ago, as […]
