The Extraordinary Science of Addictive Junk Food – NYTimes.com

A MUST READ!

Please read how the American consumer is being purposefully addicted to SOS (sugar, oil, salt) by food engineers hired by Big Food. How they research and analyze how much Color 23 must be combined with Syrup 11 and Packaging 6; etc., etc.

Did you think chefs were tweaking recipes like your mom did to try to please the family for Sunday dinner? Think again!

What an eye-opener.
And as Jeff Novick, MS, RD says, “A plant based diet that is also high in fat, sugar & salt is no better as it also keeps you in the same pleasure trap.”

Five Recipes for You to Try This Weekend!

Here are a bunch more of the recipes I’ve made recently.  There is no need to be bored when you’re eating Plantcentric, that’s for sure!

Fast Food Veg Loaf 

(I call it No-Meat Loaf)

This has really become a staple in my house.  In the old days, my husband was a true meatloaf lover.  He would make a meatloaf and add oil to it!  I had never heard of that.  Oil would come half-way up the loaf pan.  To me, it was gross, and I wouldn’t eat it.  Thank goodness those days are over.  I think this is his favorite entree now.

No-Meat Loaf slice

This is made with kidney beans, brown rice, regular oats.  I add onions, garlic, greens and mushrooms to jazz it up.  Hearty and delicious!

Engine 2 Raise the Roof Sweet Potato-Vegetable Lasagna

This recipe is so good that Rip Esselstyn & his wife Jill chose it to be the main dish at their wedding reception.  It has onion, garlic, corn, mushrooms, carrots, red bell peppers, tofu, whole wheat pasta, spinach, sweet potatoes, tomatoes and cashew.    Very filling.  Took some time to make.  Wonderful!

Introduction

Jeff Novick, MS, RD

Over the last few years, I have been honored and privileged to work with and speak to literally 10’s of 1000’s of people who were looking to change to a plant based diet and lifestyle.  As a result of this work, one of the questions that comes up very frequently is how does someone find a plant based doctor to work with.

While there are several ways to respond to this question, one of the greatest responses I ever heard was from Dr Caldwell Esselstyn during our Q & A sessions at an immersion.   After hearing it, I asked him if we could work together on expanding and drafting his response into a formal article.   What follows is our first draft, which we may update and amend over time, but because of the importance of this, we wanted to put it out now.

Here we go…

How To Find a Plant-Based Doctor

Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., MD

Jeff Novick, MS, RD

People often despair that they lack a local physician with a plant based focus. It is a common concern we hear often. While ideally it would be best if there were a plant based doctor for everyone who wants one,this is rarely the case.

However, do not despair. Working together we can bring you and your current doctor fully up to speed with knowledge about plant based nutrition. Therefore the first thing that will be important for you to do is to get yourself up to speed on the basics of plant-based nutrition.

One way to do this is by visiting one of the residential or immersion programs** run by one of the recommend doctors. Other ways that can also be of value include reading the recommended books**, watching the recommended DVD’s** or taking the E-Cornell plant based nutrition course**. Of course, nothing can take the place of a live interaction with a knowledgeable plant based doctor.

It is important to continue to work with your doctor and let them realize we are not taking away his/her patient; we are merely focusing on a very important dimension of care -the causation of their illness, which local physicians 1. don’t have the time for 2. don’t have the passion for or 3. lack the training or skill set for.

Also, in the beginning, you do not have to get into the specific details of your diet.  Just let them know you have decided to start eating better and going to make some changes (eat a few more fruits, veggies, whole grains and beans and less junk food and fried foods) and see how things go and that you would like them to keep an eye on your numbers. Even ask them if they have any recommendations.

Then, just keeping following the program. This way, working together with your local physician, he/she will be able to reduce 1. blood pressure meds as the patient’s hypertension resolves 2. reduce cholesterol meds as cholesterol lowers 3. reduce diabetic meds as glucose is reduced.

In addition, once you being to have success and your doctor sees these positive changes, he/she may initiate the conversation with you about what you have done and be far more willing to have the conversation from a more open perspective having witnessed the improvements. And, by doing it this way, you will have helped to educate your doctor about the power of plant based, no oil way of living without having any confrontational interactions.

When we approach it this way, the local MD’s will recognize that those of us in lifestyle medicine are working synergistically in the spirit of cooperative endeavor to have their patients have the full benefit of plant based nutrition to halt and reverse their disease.
