Rice and Broccoli with Mashed Potatoes and Beans

15 Aug

004“Won’t you get fat eating all that starch?” Actually, I’m losing weight, feeling great, and getting loads of nutrition, everything my body needs to heal from years of unintentional dietary abuse.

Calories are not all created equal. Calories from fat are metabolized quite differently from the calories found in whole grains and starchy vegetables. In a diet like this, you’ll start to heal from Type 2 Diabetes (usually within a few days), arthritis, cardiovascular issues, and a host of other chronic diseases, all while eating as much as you want and being completely satisfied.

Rice: brown and black rice seasoned with curry powder, black pepper, hot sauce (optional), and a little soy sauce, with steamed broccoli mixed in.

Mashed Potatoes: red potatoes cubed and steamed for 15 minutes then mashed with black pepper, sea salt to taste, and hot sauce (optional — you might get the idea I like stuff hot!)

Mashed (“Refried”) Beans: pinto beans seasoned with chili powder, cumin, a little soy sauce, and a lot of hot sauce (I’m starting to see a pattern here), then mashed.

Macaroni with Tomato Sauce

15 Aug

020Everyone loves macaroni, but it’s fattening, isn’t it? I mean, you shouldn’t just have a huge container of it at a time (the photo shows four cups’ worth), should you?

If you add in the baby food designed by God for baby animals, then the answer is no, you shouldn’t have it very often (or maybe never at all), because it will contribute to your becoming or remaining sick and fat (or just sick if you have an unusually robust metabolism).

The version shown here, you could eat ’til the cows come home, and unless you’re eating fat (meat, dairy, or oil) in something else, you’ll end up trim, and most if not all of your chronic diseases will start to disappear.

  • 100% whole wheat macaroni (non-GMO)
  • Tomato sauce (contains no oil)
  • Garlic powder
  • Oregano
  • Black pepper
  • Chili powder
  • Hot sauce (if you like it spicy!)
  • Salt? I didn’t add any, because there’s more than enough in this particular tomato sauce

I know, where’s the veggies? Well, while I usually have vegetables with my meals, this one was a quickie, and, since it’s whole grains, it’s full of great nutrition. Delicious!

Mashed Potatoes with Gravy and Mixed Veggies

4 Aug

003This is a really fattening dish, right? All those potatoes (4 cups) covered with gravy? Well, if they were prepared with the ingredients most Americans use, the answer would be “yes.” But guess what…

Eating this way will make you LOSE EXCESS WEIGHT, heal from Type 2 Diabetes and heart disease, heal your complexion, constipation, and ulcers, will lower your risk of cancer and gall and kidney stones, and will give you a long, healthy life.

Mashed potatoes: red-skinned potatoes cubed and steamed for 15 minutes, then mashed after being seasoned with black pepper and sea salt.

Gravy (as shown — see below for a much better recipe): several chopped mushrooms, a little bit of almond milk (non-dairy) and water, seasoned with black pepper, cumin, and tamari sauce, blended in a blender on high until creamy.

Gravy (much better recipe): 2 cups water, tamari or soy sauce to taste, dash of black pepper, nutritional yeast flakes (options), onion powder, either 1/4 cup of whole wheat pastry flour or 2 tbsp of potato or non-GMO corn starch. The starch is easier to make, and can be slowly whisked into the water; the flour needs to be added to hot water very slowly while whisking. Continue to cook on medium heat while stirring. If using flour, cook for about 10 minutes until it no longer tastes underdone. If using starch, cook until the desired thickness is achieved.

Vegetables: from a frozen bag of peas, carrots, corn, baby lima beans, and green beans. Steamed for 8 minutes and seasoned with black pepper and sea salt to taste.

NOTE: Adding oil, meat, and/or dairy will cause this to be a fattening meal, and too much of those things, especially the meat and dairy, will completely negate all the benefits listed above. Without those things, you can eat as much of this type of whole, plant-based food as you want, and you’ll still get well and lean over time!

Spaghetti with Kimchi

3 Aug

005WARNING: Eating this way will make you LOSE EXCESS WEIGHT, heal from Type 2 Diabetes and heart disease, heal your complexion, constipation, and ulcers, will lower your risk of cancer and gall and kidney stones, and will give you a long, healthy life.

Whole wheat spaghetti pasta: boiled and strained, nothing else added. Three cups’ worth.

Kimchi: raw, vegan, with live cultures (probiotics). Contains cabbage, carrots, red peppers, leeks, crushed red pepper, green onions, garlic, ginger, and sea salt.

Not Shown: a large side dish (2 cups) of brussel sprouts.

Before digging in, I’ll mix everything together. This is a quickly-thrown-together meal. The kimchi provides some vegetable content, live probiotics (for gut health), and a very spicy and vinegary taste. Delicious!

NOTE: Adding oil, meat, and/or dairy will cause this to be a fattening meal, and too much of those things, especially the meat and dairy, will completely negate all the benefits listed in the “warning” above. Without those things, you can eat as much of this type of whole, plant-based food as you want, and you’ll still get well and lean over time!

Mashed Potatoes, Refried Beans, and Tomatoes

3 Aug

002This is one of my favorite meals, and eating like this several times a day, I am losing weight and feeling great.

The recipe is slightly different from the last similar meal I posted, so here it is:

Mashed potatoes: cubed red potatoes steamed for 15 minutes and mixed with black pepper, hot sauce, and a little sea salt. Topped with mushrooms sautéed in water with garlic, black pepper, and a dash of tamari sauce.

Refried beans: mashed pinto beans with cumin, chili pepper, black pepper, hot sauce, and a dash of tamari sauce.

On the side: chopped tomato with diced red onion.

Absolutely no oil, no meat, and no dairy, since adding any of those would make this a fattening meal, not a trimming one. Eat this way for a few days and you’ll find you don’t need that stuff anyway.
