Since there is no mandatory labeling, we need this information! When reading ingredients at the grocery store, it’s amazing how many products I recognize as GMO.

Bravo to The Dr. Oz Show for continuing to wake up viewers to the dangers of GMO’s. He addresses Whole Foods Market making every product with GMO’s in it be labeled within 5 years and interviews Whole Foods CEO. He also addresses GMO salmon, gmo tomato, which foods to avoid.. Please watch and share. http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/dr-oz-debate-labeling-genetically-modified-foods-pt-1
This has become a new staple in our home. I bought organic corn (to assure it was non-GMO), and we always have potatoes and onions on-hand. I didn’t have any chilies, so I sprinkled on some crushed red pepper flakes, some smoked paprika and some chili powder. I baked the potatoes in the microwave, so this dish is super quick. It is good warm or cold. Could easily add some edamame or beans of your choice to really up the protein. http://www.vegfriend.com/forum/topics/warm-corn-and-potato-salad
You’ve got to try these from Lindsay S. Nixon, otherwise known as Happy Herbivore!
Fat-Free Vegan Deviled Eggs
Adopted from Ann Esselstyn, this recipe uses hummus, Dijon mustard, and spices put into a scooped out baked potato. Ingenious!
I didn’t have black salt, so I just used regular salt. I used Smoked Paprika, Amir Roasted Red Pepper Hummus and lots of regular yellow mustard (not 1/4 tsp. Dijon like she called for). When you go get the recipe using the link below, check out how cute and realistic they look. I know what I’m taking on Easter!

Spinach & Mushroom Quiche
Rich & decadent without eggs, fat and cholesterol. Made from firm tofu, nutritional yeast, cornstarch (I threw out my old cornstarch and used organic so it wouldn’t be GMO), Dijon mustard (I used regular yellow mustard), cremini mushrooms (I used what I had) and frozen spinach.
Great for Easter or Christmas breakfast!

Chana Palak Masala (Spicy Indian Stew featuring palak (spinach) and chana (chickpeas).
Boy, this was good! I used Rotel Original Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies instead of canned peeled whole tomatoes, so it was spicy.

I remember it like it was yesterday. Last Christmas, after a substantial weight loss journey for both of us, I surprised my husband with
Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., MD’s Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, Rip Esselstyn’s The Engine 2 Diet, Julieanna Hever, M.S., R.D., CPT The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition, The Forks Over Knives Companion Book, and Kathy Hester’s The Vegan Slow Cooker. After reading Dr. Esselstyn’s & Rip Esselstyn’s books, my husband, Bill, turned to me and said, “I’m going vegan. You don’t have to if you don’t want to, but I am. I’m starting now.” I about choked! We had just “come out” as vegetarian, but this was different. This was really radical. Go without cheese?? And ice cream and pudding? I shakily said, “OK. If you are, I am too.” Gulp!
Then, we watched Dr. Robert Lustig’s The Bitter Truth About Sugar
We had already been following the Rule of 5 from You on a Diet by Michael F. Roizen, MD and Mehmet C. Oz, MD, one of which was no high fructose corn syrup, but now we cut out any kind of added sugar.
We are also learning about GMO’s and trying to cut them out of our diet. Pretty hard when there is currently no labeling. We definitely are supporting legislation to have all food that has GMO’s in them to be labeled.
What a great year it’s been. It hasn’t been hard. We just armed ourselves with knowlege about the effects of dairy and used vegan cookbooks. We discovered great new flavors, spices and ways of cooking. No meat, no dairy, no added oil and no added sugar. Our palates have really grown.
This was taken 3 years ago this Easter Christmas 2012
Now, I daresay, we are actually becoming foodies again! We love trying all new recipes. I really love Chloe Coscerelli’s cookbook, Chloe’s Kitchen http://chefchloe.com/.
I hope you are enjoying following our journey. I’ve been humbled when I hear how we’ve inspired you to make changes in your own life as we continue to make changes in ours.
Let me know how you’re doing and what you like about this blog!
Happy Plantcentric One Year Anniversary!!
