    It is amazing how we can use "culture" to justify injustice. Many groups, including Christians, called the parish and pleaded with them not to do it, but they marched right on and did it anyway. Amazing, simply amazing.

    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.

    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!

    Lois and Clark! I was in love with Dean Cain when they used to show the series here, which was a long time ago. And when I was much younger, like in the early 80s, I was also in love with Chris Reeve. I find Tom Welling very cute too. And Brandon Routh is hot! (Ooops..can I say that here?) I may be female and definitely not that young anymore but I'm still a huge man of steel fan

    Marfran: It's quite popular. The private channels are heavily Americanized. I also grew up(remember I'm 21) watching Batman and Superman. I especially enjoyed 'Lois and Clark - The New Adventures of Superman''. Romance meeting action - just as life ought to be! - There is, however, also some sort of deeper layer to my messages. I'm convinced that some aspects of the human potential, and be it just the well-neglected aspect called health, have become buried and almost forgotten. A vegan diet will help us to tap these original resources again. And thus aquire greater powers. Superpowers, if one likes. Indeed, if once you're sixty and unavailed by all the heart-wrenching diseases troubling your peers, you will look quite the Superman among them. So to say.

    Ask your pastor to return this prayer to the Mass.

    Holy Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our safe guard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and you, Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits, who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls.
    Amen
    Most Sacred Heart of Jesus; have mercy on us
