My Daily Meals

A few people asked what I eat every day. I think that what I eat is of minor interest, but maybe the reasoning behind it might be more valuable.

First the what. My friend Dick Talens suggested that I do intermittent fasting, which means that I eat during only an eight hour period each day. There's some compelling evidence that this is good for longevity, but not enough that I can say for sure that it's true. I was attracted to the diet because it meant that I could spend less time eating each day.

When I first wake up, I drink green tea. My staple is Green Ecstasy from Samovar, but sometimes I have something else just to mix it up.

The beginning of my eating period is two pm. I make three open face sandwiches consisting of the following: one piece of ezekiel seed bread, hazelnut almond butter, a small handful of walnuts, one third of a banana, and a lot of chia seeds. Sometimes I have some nice organic berries to put on top.

Is Soy Healthy or Dangerous?

On Imported Blog

Have you ever wondered how soy came to be so popular in recent years? From veggie-burgers to soy ice cream, soy lattes, and even soy infant formulas, the sale of soy products boomed in less than 20 years, especially after it re-positioned itself as “heart healthy” when the FDA approved a health claim in 1999 linking soy with a reduction in heart disease.

Ok, nice facts. So what does this have to do with you personally? Well, everything. Virtually all food-products (i.e. anything with a list of ingredients) contain soy by-products that you’re most likely consuming unknowingly. Although that may not seem like a big deal, the fact of the matter is that the type of soy being used in food products is NOT a health food and the quantity in which soy is being consumed today is an even bigger concern.

Fermented soybeans have been a long standing tradition in East Asian cuisines and their people are known to have lower rates of heart disease and certain cancers than anywhere else in the world.
