Soy Free (No Egg Either) Vegan Omelette

| 01/08/2015 | 2 Replies

The same flavorful vegetables and taste, the soft texture and mouth feel of an eggy omelette without the eggs.

Though your home will smell fabulous and exotic, this dish is quite time consuming to make, and definitely falls under the category of “slow-cooking.” It’s something to make on a weekend, not something you throw together after you rush home from a busy day at the office and a hellish commute. But trust me, it’s worth the work and time you’ll put in.

While some fight the Black Lives Matter battle for judicial equality and police brutality, I have chosen to take up a personal fight against things that kill more black people than either the police or drugs. My fight is against the diseases killing African Americans based on what we as a people eat. Diabetes, cancer, hypertension, kidney disease, heart disease are decimating the black community and crippling or killing us off younger and younger every year.

Ulcerative Colitis and the Healing Power of a Vegan Diet

| 12/06/2014 | Reply

According to Dr. John McDougall, there has been a rapid increase in the incidence of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis in developed countries, which has led investigators to believe IBD is due to the Western diet. Worldwide, IBD is more commonly found in populations living farthest from the equator, a trend that reflects patterns of consumption of animal foods (meat and dairy) at higher latitudes and starchy foods in those populations living nearer the equator.

No Junk January – Why Give Up Junk Food?

| 11/15/2014 | Reply

Why do I love junk food so much? I find all kinds of reasons to justify eating it with the top one being it’s easier and cheaper. Just so you know, I am not a vegan or vegetarian, I eat meat. I want to know how you say its cheaper to cook because I can eat off the dollar cravings menu at Taco Bell and be full for $4-5.00 (plus tax and whatever it costs for a soda)… so say $6.50 and I’m done. No dishes to wash either! Three of my friends want me to do the junk food challenge with them in January. But first I want to know why should stop eating fast food and cook like you suggest, when I can just do what I’ve been doing? It works for me.

When black Americans develop health problems such as hypertension, heart disease, and diabetes, we automatically think that it must be genetic and nothing can be done about it, because other family members have the same problems. However, when we become conscious of the fact that the problem is not family genes, but family eating habits, we can take control of our health.
