I all of this talk about protein powder and I finally tried your breakfast recipe this morning. Good stuff! I only used one scoop of power and I used natural peanut butter.

Ironically I was driving down 2nd ave last night and I saw a store illuminated with the lights "Health Food" but as I looked into the bright windows all I could see was rows and rows of bottled powders. Haha!

When I think of health food I think of this.

Pasta with Peanut Sauce

Oh here's a healthy recipe I found laying around. I don't know where I found it but it seems to be accredited to Jane Fonda.

Pasta with Peanut Sauce
-1/2 cup vegetable stock
- 3 tbsp peanut butter
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- olive oil
- 1 garlic clove minced
- red pepper flakes
- 1 green bell pepper chopped
- 1 red bell pepper chopped
- 1/2 cup chopped scallions
- fresh parsley or cilantro
- pasta

1. Sautee the peppers then add the garlic and pepper flakes.
2. Add the vegetable stock, peanut butter, and soy sauce
3. Take off the heat, add the scallions and parsley and toss with cooked pasta.

Koukouvagia, I don;t understand why this is healthy, as opposed to other pasta dishes. Does it actually taste good? I understand the peanut with pasta to get useable protein, but that would also be achieved with so many other ingredients, all of which would be healthy. Maybe i just am put off by jane fonda, who was a bimbo in her youth then pretended to be a feminist, and a radical, (fighting for causes that made me think: with friends like you who needs enemies?) and then a bulimic fitness fanatic, and made full circle. So maybe it's just the fact that it's her recipe that makes it stick in my throat and not the peanut butter? :)

Haha, I know what you mean and for that reason I have never made this recipe. I think it comes from one of her health and nutrition books. I remember my Mom and I doing the Jane Fonda workout video religiously, I bet I could still remember the routine. Aside from that I have no use for her but I saw the recipe in my book and thought I'd post it for kicks since it is labeled a "healthy recipe."

A great TV eccentric of a few years past was a nutritionalist during the war. A very competant scientist. His view was 'Eat what you like - just don't eat too much of it'

In recent years the hypnotist Paul McKenna has echoed this with his dieting rules - eat when you are hungry; eat slowly so that your stomach has time to tell your brain that it is full; when you are full stop eating.

I think a balanced diet is probably important too

Indian - that's why our grandmothers/mothers would tell us to chew our food 20 times....gives the food time to get to the stomach so we know when we've had enough, and the jaw is satisfied it's done enough chewing to keep the body fed.
They knew/know many things a lot of people have forgotten.

For a good balanced meal I love a stir fry. It uses a minimum of protein, the veg are still crisp and retain much of their vitamins and minerals. Plus, it is quick! Keep it colourful - the eye knows what the body needs, anything with a good balance of colours (watch the fat content tho) is generally the best bet for good eating. It doesn't need a lot of fancy sauces or even spices, the flavours in the ingredients do most of the talking.

Or if I have time, a lovely slow cooked stew. Lean meat, stacks of veg, bit of stock and/or wine, S&P. Makes its own sauce, just take the lid off the last little while and let it thicken, or use some cornstarch slurry if it needs it. Can serve with rice/ noodles/pasta, go wholemeal with the pasta if possible (no butter on the pasta please :) )

P.S. Koukou - I agree. What great looking tomato plants!
