    Have you heard of Vapour Beauty? http://www.vapourbeauty.com/

    I don't have sensitive skin, but their products are lovely, and they offer sample sizes at a discount so you can try before you commit to a full-sized product.

    Hi lit,

    I have been vegetarian for many years, vegan for a few, and raw for about six months.

    After the initial transition and detox period of about a week, in which I suffered headaches (probably from sugar withdrawal), I felt better than I ever had in my life. I lost weight, retained my muscle mass, and had a ton of energy.

    I used Dr. Gabriel Cousen's book, Rainbow Green, to get myself started. He advocates a low-glycemic diet to begin, and that was what I found hardest at first, especially when I couldn't figure out what to eat for breakfast when I was denied sweet fruits!

    I've since discovered chia seeds, which, when soaked, make a wonderfully satisfying breakfast.

    I wish you the best on your raw journey.

    The proof I can think of is that vegetable eaters have way fewer addictions and maybe more important their children don't get addicted.

    Care to comment
    I don't know of any studies that have or are looking at this connection -
    Making conscious choice about food 'should' translate to other ways that people care for themselves - but in my experience addiction is a much more complicated thing - sometimes seeming to have a genetic predisposition

I went under the non-denominational umbrella for the last twenty years. However, God has been showing me some things that are now leading me to believe that the Catholic Church pretty much has it right (although I'm not sure if any one church has it 100% right) and now I'm seriously considering converting to Catholicism. I have had some experiences and seen certain things that I'm not so sure Protestant Churches will understand. My experiences have led me to do a lot of research afterwards - particularly in the area of purgatory and I've read a lot of what Padre Pio wrote about and what others wrote about him. I was lead to write a book about my experiences and it will be available Free of charge of Sunday, June 8, 2014 and Monday, June 9th. I'd like to know your thoughts, so if you can, feel free to write a review. The link is: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IT2GIOS. Thank you and may God bless all of you and may He continue to guide us in this journey of life.
    Contact your parish to inquire about their RCIA program ... Welcome fellow journeyer...

Anytime you combine legumes (peas or beans) with whole grains (rice, wheat, quinoa, etc.), you have a complete protein. I also eat a lot of nuts. It may be necessary to take iron and/or B12 supplements, as veggies don't contain these nutrients. However, if you can find farm fresh eggs with bright orange yolks, that may be enough. Don't think in terms of daily intake, but rather of weekly intake, ie., am I getting enough nutrients every week? Your annual check up will show if you have any deficiencies. Secondly, the one time I went to a naturopath, she told me to eat meat, took me off my thyroid prescription, and my hair started falling out. A friend of mine who was nearly vegetarian, had a naturopath tell her to eat fish. I now take my levothyroxin and have given up on naturopaths. (The hair I lost never did grow back. I also suffered extreme exhaustion while I was off the meds.) Lastly, my husband was a carnivore. I didn't cook two separate meals. I made a veggie dish, grain or pasta, and a meat dish. He ate everything; I just left out the meat. Hope this helps.
    Excellent points... We are protein obsessed! I love nutritional yeast... Add it to lots, sprinkle on cooked veggies, sliced tomatoes, popcorn... Great nutritional supplement for vegans!

    Thank you. My church is fairly big, so I'm sure there has to be someone who can be a sponsor, or, at least someone in the Phoenix metro area.

    I eat eggs (organic), goat cheese, and drink goat's milk, so I don't worry about getting enough protein. I have read where our liver actually does store some vitamin B-12 for a couple of years, if we happen to be in a bad situation, so as long as you take the vitamins (which I do, too), you'll be fine. Vegetarianism is not only a philosophy, but it becomes a way of life. I have been one for 32 years and bless every day I am alive!

    I had to google it before I knew what it was!!

    Found this :

    Culinary use[edit]

    Fresh young chard can be used raw in salads. Mature chard leaves and stalks are typically cooked (like in pizzoccheri) or sauteed; their bitterness fades with cooking, leaving a refined flavor which is more delicate than that of cooked spinach.


    Hope it helps!

    Not sure if this is what you are looking for but I make a cold alfredo pasta. I cook the pasta, add alfredo sauce and heat thoroughly. Now I know you said cold recipe - during the summer I cook it and chill it and then eat it cold. The first time I didn't intend to eat it cold; I just took a bite of leftovers and decided it was still pretty tasty cold and we all know dishes with certain sauces are better the next day. And you can doctor this any way you like: how light or heavy the sauce is, add veggies, etc. Not sure how well it freezes since it never last that long.

    Hi y'all- for all you Catholic animal lovers, here's a wonderful uplifting book by, believe it or not, Dean Koontz. I think his dog actually affected his deepening faith. It's called " a Big Little Life: A memoir of a joyful dog". Loved lived loved it. Might have to buy it.

    Wisdom 9, 1-3

    O God of my fathers and Lord of mercy, who hast made all things by thy word, and by thy wisdom has formed man to have dominion over the creatures thou hast made, and rule the world in holiness and righteousness, and pronounce judgment in uprightness of soul, give me the wisdom that sits by thy throne.
