RISOTTO, SORT OF

“Old ways won’t open new doors.”

Lately I’ve been watching documentaries about health issues.  I now know more about fats and carbs and sugar and my pancreas.  And how about those GMO’s and organics?  What this has led to is an understanding of how easy it would be to live a healthy life.  Also, how much cheaper.  Pound for pound and factoring in the savings on meds and doctors, there’s a pretty strong argument for healthy eating.

This is going to be fun!  One of my favorite new recipes is a combination of lentils, cooked in vegetarian beef broth and combined with onions and mushrooms sautéed in butter along with a bit of rice mixed in.  It’s a sort of risotto.

Pairing this up with some roasted veggies on the side and you’ve got a delicious meal.

Squirrel!  I remember a bit of my life from yesteryear when my husband and I walked every day as well as ate amazingly wonderful foods.  The results?  My husband got off a lot of his meds.  We both became svelte.  Also, we were no longer hungry throughout the day.  I concluded, and it’s my bias so I’m keeping it, that hunger is a sign that the body is looking for something it needs.  That wouldn’t be corn chips.  Trust me.

There seems to be a persistent belief among foodies that our bodies have an amazing ability to heal themselves.  All they need are the right nutrient to do there work.  Again, that wouldn’t be corn chips.  Or, to put it in modern terms, try assembling an Ikea table using only a hammer.

So I’m moving on with this blog, sharing only nutrient rich foods, simple recipes, and things I’ve learned through documentaries.  It shouldn’t take long to drive my husband absolutely bonkers!  Whatever.
