Rick’s Beetroot Borscht

Great for Valentine’s Day or Halloween or Any Day!

A food processor makes preparation for this recipe much easier. This is my favorite food processor. The large 5″ wide feed chute eliminates need to precut most ingredients. It has a large capacity, so I don’t have to keep dumping the container as I am processing. The wide mouth can be adjusted to a smaller mouth to use for carrots, celery, etc. The slicing disc is the real deal. Turn the adjustment knob to the thickness you want and away you go.  https://amzn.to/3sBzTSt

Mushrooms, Need to know

Mushrooms – Cooked or Raw ?

Mushrooms are important to eat daily. Please remember to cook them before eating. Raw mushrooms contain potentially carcinogenic agaratine.  Cooking greatly reduces this compound.

My Favorite, Easy, Filling Recipe -Welcome To Healthy Fast Food

IMG_4308

Following this lifestyle can be frustrating for those who do not enjoy cooking.

If only we could go to a drive through and buy compliant food that was delicious.

Well, until that day comes, what can one do to get good food quickly?

Here is my favorite recipe that I share with Newbies and those that don’t care to cook, have much time or a real kitchen.

Cook a sweet potato in the microwave quickly in this Potato Microwaving Bag ,  batch cook a dozen in the oven or cook them in the InstantPot.

Make this easy to make, delicious recipe and serve over your potato.

Fast Food Meal

In Large Mixing Bowl combine:

2 Cans unsalted black beans (drained)

1 small package of Wholly Guacamole

1 jar Newman’s Own Salsa (mild)

1 cup of low salt pico de gallo (usually found in produce section)

If you are really ambitious, you can use a potato masher to get a creamier consistency.

Serve cold or warm over a baked potato.

You can roast lots of potatoes in the oven.

You can easily bake potato(es) in the microwave with this!

You can even add a cooked bag of frozen veggies.

Yay!

I Love Frushi!

frushi-roll

I did a recipe demonstration (back in 2019) with all of the ingredients the attendies tried their hand at rolling them. It was a lot of fun, and really delicious.

You just need to cut up your favorite fresh fruit. We used mango, kiwi, strawberries, apple cut up into match sticks, blueberries, pineapple and banana.

You dip the rice wrap briefly in a bowl of water.

Place moistened rice wrap on a flat, water resistant surface.

Then, place your ingredients on top (second quarter) of the rice wrap.

Roll it up like a burrito and you have Frushi! You can even slice it up like sushi.

We even made a chocolate dipping sauce. The Frushi was good without the dipping sauce, but everyone agreed that there is always room for chocolate. The chocolate sauce recipe will be posted in the Recipe page.

We used these rice wraps: Rice Wraps

Exer…sighs

Plant Based Lifestyle Success!

The “E” word just hangs in the air…

If you haven’t gotten to the lucky place where you are addicted to it, exercise can be something you dread.

Limitations:

Whether physical  or mental, limitations can feed the excuse monster.

If you are physically unable to stand, you can do something in a chair. Use small hand weights, soup cans or water bottles to do curls, etc. Can you do 5 curls today?

If you can’t use your arms, do leg lifts while seated. Can you do 5 leg lifts today?

If you can’t walk long distances, buy a cheap pedometer and add one step each day.

What is one simple move you can do one of today that perhaps you can do two of tomorrow and three the next day?
