Preventing 90% of Heart Disease

Hi folks,

 
It is because of reports like this that I am passionate about learning and sharing nutrition information. 
 
If you follow Dr. Greger’s video link below, you will see how the understanding of the cause of heart disease has changed. Although vascular disease is the Number 1 cause of death in North America it is preventable for the majority of people.
 
I hope you are one of them!
 
all the best,
Dr. L

Here is a recipe for you to try, fat free and filling for a wintry day.
From the  Holy Cow website:
 
Stuffed Bell Peppers
 
Serves: 3
  • Ingredients
  •  
  • 3 large bell peppers
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa (or rice)
  • 1 cup cooked or canned black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tsp biryani masala (or a curry powder you have on hand)
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • 4 large button mushrooms, minced
  • 1 medium onion, minced
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced or crushed into a paste
  • ¼ cup coriander leaves, chopped
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • Salt to taste
  1. In a saucepan, add the onions with a tablespoon of water.
  2. Add a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring, over medium-low heat until the onions start to soften.
  3. Add the garlic and ginger, saute for a few seconds, then add the turmeric.
  4. Add the beans and quinoa along with the biryani masala.
  5. Stir together to mix thoroughly. The mixture should be quite dry. Stir in the lemon juice and coriander and turn off the heat.
  6. Prep the bell peppers by cutting into halves down the middle. Carefully remove the seeds and any white “ribs” so you have a clean cavity.
  7. Stuff the peppers with the prepared quinoa and bean mixture.
  8. Place the peppers side by side in a baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil.
  9. Bake the peppers in a preheated 350-degree Fahrenheit oven and bake for 45 minutes.
  10. Remove the aluminum foil and continue baking for another 15 minutes.
  11. Remove from the oven. Garnish with more coriander leaves, if desired. Serve warm.
