Michael Pollan discusses this phenomenon in his book the "Omnivore's Dilemma" as the "French Paradox." This paradox is the term researchers coined to reference the fact that the French and the majority of Europe's population have a lower incidence of coronary heart disease, despite the fact that they have a diet high in saturated fats. My sister recently sent me this amazing article titled When Your Mother Says She's Fat. I’ve been seeing a lot of advertisements on television and in the newspapers about umami through the use of MSG (monosodium glutamate). When you don’t have any chicken stock in your kitchen, dashi stock is a great alternative to have in hand. This morning, I received an email from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition to inform me that I am now a Registered Holistic Nutritionist. Sense and Serendipity is about the pleasures of cooking, eating and living where I share my life in between recipes and stories that nourishes the body, mind and soul. When I was in Italy I realized that as a population they drink an average of a bottle a wine per person per day, eat rich and decadent foods, and on average they are healthier and less overweight than Americans.
I think the reason is that the European population walk and bike more to their destinations than Americans.
The article is about a message from a daughter to her mother and it brought me to tears.
I had leftover pumpkin from the muffins so I thought why not make a chocolate pumpkin smoothie for breakfast?!?! Well, it's not always easy to find time to prepare and eat breakfast in today's fast-paced society. Dashi stock imparts a subtle, clean and less complex flavor and allows the essence of other ingredients in a dish to come through. Being trained in a professional culinary school, it’s good to know that I have something to include to my repertoire. It’s Casi from cupcakeMAG here to share some of my favorite smoothies recipes that I’ve made and love!
It is truly incredible what the human body can achieve when you challenge yourself and nourish yourself properly. This Japanese basic stock is made from konbu or kombu (dried seaweed) and katsuobushi (bonito flakes) and sometimes dried sardines or dried shiitake mushrooms.The stock from the first soaking is called the ichiban dashi which has the finest flavor and is used to make miso soup. I’ve been to Italy once during my mid-term break from hotel school but it was only a short trip with close friends. I may not have been working professionally for the past five years but my late-father’s battle with diabetes and cancer including his death has been a profound learning experience.
I feel that I have become stronger, and definitely leaner, especially since I have added animal protein to my diet. However, I think I have come out of this challenge as more free to let go of all of the rules and just live a healthy and active lifestyle and let my weight fall where it may.
When you don't have the time to sit down and eat a good breakfast, then smoothies can be one of the things that you can include in your lifestyle. It was discovered that the taste was produced by glutamate contained in kombu and named it umami.Umami, is a savory taste imparted by glutamate (converted from glutamine and glutamic acid), an amino acid neurotransmitter that excites our neurons. The second stock is called niban dashi which is made by simmering the same ingredients from the ichiban dashi for about 15 minutes to extract a light-flavored dashi.
I think he became my connection between food and nutrition but at the same time I’ve also have fears whether I still want to cook or not. Yesterday Matt and I bought 2 pints of Ben & Jerry's (I bought froyo and Matt went crazy with full on Chocolate ice cream lol) I devoured the entire thing! In its whole, unprocessed, unadulterated form, glutamic acid has a lot of benefits for the body such as fuel for the brain cells. Nothing is off limits but I try to choose healthier versions of things and when I want to overindulge, its okay because I lead a life that is healthy and active. But in the form of monosodium glutamate or free glutamic acid, it can be bad in large quantities.As one of the excitatory neurotransmitter, glutamic acid can stimulate neurons in the brain system, which alters neuron system activity and triggers headaches, tingling, numbness and chest pain.


I always end up making only the ichiban dashi as I use the kombu for cooking beans but it is wise to reuse the bonito flakes to make another pot of stock as Japanese ingredients are not cheap.While chicken and other stocks require hours of simmering, dashi stock is much to simpler to make. It’s about taking chances in life, abandoning your comfort zone, moving beyond your fears, following your heart and just going with the flow of life.
But now, I am sure that cooking will always be one of my passions in life because I am confident that when I cook, I cook with a purpose.
Blend, and enjoy!A smoothie is an easy breakfast to grab and go, still filled with nutrients and all that good stuff that’ll start your day off the healthy way.
One guy who is always at the gym in the mornings told us that its amazing that he always sees Matt and I working out together. The good thing about living in a tropical country is that I could drink smoothie almost anytime of the year, even in November. But the secret to the pure umami flavor of dashi stock is the long-intensive process required to produce the kombu and the dried bonito flakes.
Though I am not sure what lies ahead, I am optimistic that supernatural doors will be opened for me.These past few years, it has been a challenge to incorporate whole foods into my diet, my cooking and in my kitchen most especially when some people are not willing to make that change. If you’re looking for some inspo, check out our Nutribullet recipes to whizz up throughout the week.
Smoothie Fresh makes all their smoothies with fresh fruit, healthy ingredients and tasty yogurts. Even if doesn’t damage the neurons, it can cause mental problems most especially with autistic kids. Two years are needed to cultivate the kombu before being carefully sun-dried and six months are required to make the dried flakes from the fresh bonito.This stock is also convenient for home cooks as kombu and bonito flakes can be stored in your pantry. It could be moving overseas, adopting a child, changing careers, learning a new cuisine in Brazil, learning a new language in Korea, taking that dance class or maybe as simple as changing your daily routine.
Fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts and seeds supported by fresh and clean animal protein are considered whole foods. Jennifer Aniston’s diet includes a lot of protein, too, which she packs in with a powder. So, when the need for a soup stock arises, the only other ingredient you need to have is water.
But what about processed and refined foods that are sneaking into our kitchen, deceiving us that they are healthy for our body?When my father was confined in the hospital for 14 months, I ate cafeteria food which was a full-diet delivered to the patient’s room. For some people, they can tolerate iced-cold smoothies but for those with weak digestive system, smoothies made with chilled fruits are better. Although dashi stock can be stored in the refrigerator (1 week) or in the freezer (about 1 month), I always make dashi stock fresh all the time and use it in less than 1 week.Dashi Stock4 cups cold water1 large piece of kombu seaweed (about 3x6 inches)1 cup packed bonito flakes Wipe the kombu with damp kitchen paper. The tray is composed of fried fish, chicken and beef, a bowl of white rice, a few leaves of overcooked vegetables and a chocolate bar filled with sugar. In a large pot, combine the water and seaweed and let it soak for 20 minutes (for some, they allow it to sit for an hour).
That’s why children are so excited about eating processed foods and fast foods such as French fries, chicken nuggets, potato chips and almost all processed products found in the supermarket. I tolerated their food for two months but I came to my senses that I have choice to eat healthier foods.
Besides, the foods that I eat will determine what the tissues of my body, my organs and my skeletons will be made of today and tomorrow.
For instance, some pineapples are too acidic while others have the right amount of sweetness and tartness.To transform your fruit smoothie into a powerhouse breakfast, even a simple lunch or a snack, you can add a few more ingredients. There are so many products out there that are controlling our taste receptors, misleading us (most especially children) to the real taste of food and that include certain restaurants. A good place to start when cooking with whole foods is to ditch the fast foods, processed foods, junk foods and also fake foods such as artificial sweeteners, MSG and hydrogenated fats. Smoothies are a great vehicle for many food supplements, such as bee pollen, lecithin, granules, hemp protein, green super-food like blue green-algae or spirulina and ground or soaked seeds.


Let the bontio flakes steep in the kombu-infused water for 5 minutes and allow it to sink to the bottom of the pot. The third breakfast option is one you’re probably eating already, with an added protein-packed ingredient. But the way I see it, it is already controlling our lives by deceiving us about what genuine food should really taste. You can also add a liquid base to make your smoothies thinner such as coconut juice, orange juice, apple juice, and nut or grain milk.
I don’t believe the addition of MSG to enhance the flavor of a certain ingredient or the dish itself is necessary.
If you're not using the stock right away, cool the stock by placing the pot onto an iced bath. Dried fruits such as apricots, prunes and dates that have been soaked overnight are also a great addition. Why don’t we just allow the natural flavors of each food to shine through simple and natural ways?
When cooled, store (covered) in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or freeze it for longer storage. Also, some natural foods found in the supermarket may appear nutritious but are actually loaded with anti-nutrients that can cause harmful effects in the body. This blog was an encouragement of a friend who asks me to start blogging my kitchen experiments which turned out to be something more. There, you will find different arrays of fruits and vegetables that will awaken your senses. This blog is about my passion for food and cooking, about health and nutrition combined together which focuses on the quality of the food rather than the rigid theories behind it. As celebrity "chefs", why would they use MSG to enhace the flavor in their cooking?It is clear that the flavoring practices of culinary tradition cannot be replaced by an isolated and concentrated product.
To make the second stock, pour another 4 cups of water into a pot and return the seaweed and bonito flakes used for making the first stock. But the supermarket or whole foods market is also another place to stock up on staples such as brown rice, oats and other grains, dried legumes, nuts and seeds, unrefined oils and vinegars, spices, cans of tomatoes and even cans of beans and chickpeas. When you cook with fresh and whole ingredients armed with the proper cooking skills and technique, the food will definitely tastes good.
In a nutshell, focus on the quality and freshness of the food and absolutely insist that what you’re eating is real and gorgeous. You can begin by eliminating the white stuff from your pantry such as white sugar and white flour (except for pastry cooks =)). Although white rice is still eaten at home, I’ve included healthier and tastier grains into my kitchen. Out with the processed, refined and denatured foods and in with the unprocessed, unrefined, unadulterated foods.Cooking with whole food is about real food that is good and delicious. But it still doesn’t make sense and I started writing phrases that would make a great title. It is also about cooking, eating and living with pleasure but still has the supernatural ability to heal and nourish our body, mind and soul. For me, it also means being at the right place, at the right time and at the right moment whether in your career, relationships, family and life in general.
