    Your mention of white beans sparked my memory of a fun dessert recipe that helped me transition into less processed, vegan foods.

    This can be made with almond or coconut milk and coconut sugar or agave to keep it vegan and low-glycemic.

    Yummy!

    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.

    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!

    Christine85 - so sorry - we had a cat for 19 years and went through the same thing. I understand that the Church teaches that animals do not have the same ' kind ' of soul as we - created in God's image. However animals are part of Gods great creation - he loves them, and of course loves us. All that being said, Heaven IMHO will be so outside our experience that we actually can not comprehend - but like you Christine85, I can not picture Heaven without animals! One of my favorite images is peaceable kingdom!

    I found a thread on here where most people write if God thinks it's for our good they'll be in Heaven. Also stuff about how animals will be in the new creation

    My cat has to be put down he's 17 with kidney disease, possible stomach ulcers and had a seizure last night mum thinks it was a stroke. She said it will be best to put him out of his misery.
    Do you think he'll go to Heaven , I'm not sure the Church really has a clear interpretation of what happens to animals when they die.

    ummm garlic!

    Garlic is rich in antioxidants, which help destroy free radicals -- particles that can damage cell membranes and DNA, and may contribute to the aging process as well as the development of a number of conditions, including heart disease and cancer. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause over time.

    Do you ever just roast a whole heads of garlic ? - then just spread on good french bread..... http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/roasted_garlic/

    ADH,

    My wife complains I am heavy on the garlic as well whenever I prepare the meals... I just tell her she needs to be purified of her vampire tendencies and garlic will assist in the process...
