A friend of mine that flies for the same airline i fly for, though he’s a Captain(!), sent this to me yesterday “Visited Monticello today with my crew and saw this quote by Jefferson & I thought of you – ‘Anticipating healthy living advice that would be extolled 2 centuries later, Jefferson wrote “I have lived temperately, eating little animal food, and that…as a condiment for the vegetables which constitute my principal diet” ‘ ”
If you struggle with going completely plant based, T.Colin Campbell author of The China Study, too, recommends animal products 10% or less resulting in the same health benefits.
Thank you John for sharing Jefferson 🙂
This is a hit of an appetizer and SO Fresh, SO Easy!
Slice and brown a tube of polenta in a skillet in olive oil, or veggie broth if you want to save calories.
Then drain and rinse a can of black beans, mix with a jar of chipotle salsa, top with guacamole and fresh cilantro, Voila!
The smoky black bean, cool guacamole, fresh cilantro combo atop the browned polenta…YUM!!
The recipe is Here, Enjoy!
A friend of mine turned me onto these little numbers through SkinnyTaste.com! What to do with a couple over ripe bananas..throw in some oatmeal, fold in walnuts (or in my case glazed pecans because that’s what I had..) and Voila! Breakfast, lunch or snack on the go 😉

I WISH the picture did these justice! I made these with the Banana Foster Parfait for my boyfriend (of whom we should call by his name, Kris) and his friend, Daniel..let me remind you, both are cooks. Good cooks. Kris said the next day, ‘These, we need to make again.’ They are fantastic…like Yumbo!

Vegan Chicken Piccata
Mmmmmm!! What is it about anything cooked in Wine that makes it amazing?….!? Saute these ‘chicken breasts’, a.k.a. yellow squash, in vegan butter and olive oil after being dredged thru Panko and whole wheat flour…..Simmer up some shallots in olive oil, add fresh thinly sliced garlic, now white wine…wait several minutes.. Now add vegetable broth blended with a bit of flour, thicken it up. Mmmm now more butter. Add capers and squeeze in some fresh lemon juice. Oh My Gosh. I served mine with fresh hot sweet potato rolls.. Want to take it over the top? Serve atop canapes (French or Italian bread sautéed in butter).
Oh! Out. Of. This. World.
