The info in "Politic -- Deadly Medicine" is SO scary to think about! It reminds me of what they said in the "Food Matters" documentary. Have you seen it?

That study done by the "Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine" just reminds me of the importance that we get our daily sunshine each day (10-15 mins is all we need, but many people don't even get that).


I'm really inspired to get this cookbook, since I've recently switched to a plant-based diet via the talk about The China Diet and your terrific links leading here.
I don't know whether I missed your comment on peanuts (a legume) but I'm wondering if they are OK to eat.
Also when chard is used is it 'organic' or not in your recipes?
Thanks very much

Bittman's book is very animal protein-based, so take a look at it before you buy it. I just borrowed it from the library. He has some modifications that sub tofu or tempeh for meat--but not that many. You're better off with any of Isa Chandra Moskowitz's--& her latest, Appetite for Reduction uses much less oil, and eliminates calorie-busters like nuts & avocados--when used, they are just small amounts.

I pretty much stay away from nuts because except for walnuts, they're high in calories, omega-6s (& we get plenty of them already), fat, & saturated fat.

As for the chard--I usually buy organic, and my favorite kind is lacinato--it's very mild tasting & pretty. The miso soup used bok choy.


Thanks for the response!
I really did mean Isa's new book but I couldn'd comment there. So your considering peanuts as nuts rather than legumes - so hard to give up peanuts...harder than sugar maybe for me :(
