‘Breadless’ healthy sandwiches: Hold the wheat!

To me, ‘healthy sandwiches’ are low-fat. This means they have no fats like mayonnaise on them or vinegar and oil as on an Italian hoagie or grinder. Yes, I know condiments and extra toppings do make sandwiches and food in general taste better. But, if you are like some poor unfortunates, future health problems (from decades of ‘wrong eating’)… Read More »

Is hummus healthy?

Is hummus healthy? I think it depends upon what you add to it. For example, when I make my own red bell pepper hummus I don’t add any olive oil or tahini.

Created To Eat Plant Based Whole Food: Is It Natural Law Or Rule From A Higher Source?

Doesn’t a doctor ask you questions about how something makes you feel? Is this science or opinion? Why is it some of us have allergic reactions to dairy? Were we not created to eat it? And, what about wheat? Gluten bothers many of us. So, what’s going on here? Do we think we can defy the laws of… Read More »
