Vegan Caesar Salad

  This salad recipe is from my second book, Slimming Meals That Heal. It is a great departure from the standard Caesar Salad offering with Parmesan cheese, a dressing high in fat and salty croutons. It can be served to anyone with lactose intolerance as the fiber from the celery mixed with the dates gives the dressing a creamy texture without dairy. The raw garlic is a sure-fire way to boost your immune system and protect yourself from catching the latest virus going...

Asparagus is high in two classes of antioxidants called phenolics and flavonoids. These powerful antioxidants protect the heart and arterial walls from free-radical damage that causes the type of inflammation that can eventually lead to heart disease.   Ingredients: 3 cups         asparagus, ends...

Is There A Healthy Way to Eat Meat?

  The meat debate rages on. On 'Team Vegetarian', Dr. Campbell has many people convinced that meat causes cancer and heart disease. There is not a day that goes by that a vegan does not contact me to say, “How could you ever go back to eating meat? You should read: The China Study, by Dr. T. Collin Campbell M.S., Ph.D..” I want to assure everyone that I have read the book and I find the science flawed. If you want another former vegan Denise Minger to walk you through the full...

Health Benefits of Mung Bean Sprouts

Magnificent mung bean sprouts are crunchy with a delicate hint of sweetness.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, one cup of bean sprouts contains a mere twenty-six calories. To put that in perspective, one...
