Interesting little research paper. You can go to the source article or download the research here: PLANT BASED COPY.
Mega-Trend? Time will tell.
Sugar & Butter (to coat spring form pan)
1 1/4 sticks butter
½ Cup Sugar (divided ¼ cups)
8 oz. Semisweet Chocolate
4 oz. Milk Chocolate
1 Tsp. Vanilla
4 Large Eggs Separated
¼ Tsp. Salt
This recipe came from the old Gourmet magazine. According to The NY Times the magazine ceased publication in 2009. So this recipe is old and The Boss has been making this chocolate wonder for years. Expect compliments because it’s that good.
Sopa de Frijol con Vegetal
1/2 pound dried pinto beans
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon dried oregano (Mexican variety preferred), crumbled
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic (medium), finely chopped
1 can tomatoes, fine dice
2 teaspoons chili powder
1. Pick over the beans carefully and remove any foreign particles. Put the beans in a strainer and rinse under cold running water. Put the beans, bay leaf, oregano, and cumin in a large saucepan with water to cover by about 2 inches. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook until the beans are tender and the liquid thickens, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Do not let the beans boil dry. Check the water level during cooking and add hot water, when needed, about 1/4 cup at a time. There should always be about 1/2 inch of water above the level of the beans.
2. Meanwhile, heat the oil over medium heat in a medium skillet and cook the onion, stirring, until it browns, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, tomatoes, and ground chili. Cook, stirring, until the tomato juices evaporate, 2 to 3 minutes. When the beans are tender, add the onion mixture to the beans. Add salt, and continue cooking for about 20 minutes to blend flavors. Remove the bay leaf, and serve hot.

I love pinto beans and found this recipe a long time ago. When the offspring were little I didn’t fix beans at home. I got my bean fix when we went out for Tex-Mex and gorged myself on the refried variety. Nowadays as an Aging Wonder I tend to eat a lot healthier than during my younger days. Give me a good bowl of beans and I’m a happy camper.
Check back for updates and tips on this soup recipe. I’ve got beans on the stove and I am absolutely positive I no longer follow the recipe as written.
Spinach and kale are favorites of those looking to stay physically fit, but they also could keep consumers cognitively fit, according to a new study. The study, which included 60 adults aged 25 to 45, found that middle-aged participants with higher levels of lutein — a nutrient found in green leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale, as well as avocados and eggs — had neural responses that were more on par with younger individuals than with their peers.
Today I made a warehouse club run. I needed mineral water, coffee, and…spinach. Seriously, I just bought a huge tub of organic spinach. I have no clue what I’m going to use the spinach for but at least I’ll be improving my neural responses.
Kale? No thanks.

It’s been two months since I posted a recipe. Too many interesting research articles, bunnies, work…the list is endless. Well the drought is over. I had leftover mashed potatoes in the fridge and told myself “I am not going to waste perfectly fine leftover mashed potatoes”. I hopped online to find a decent potato pancake recipe. But instead, I stumbled on a quiche recipe that used instant mashed potatoes for the crust. One of my go to recipes is frittata that has plenty of potatoes in it. So why not quiche?
Trigger Warning for Easily Offended Militant Vegans
Stop reading now. This recipe has eggs and dairy.
3 tablespoons EVO
2 tablespoons butter
2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
1 small (or half a large) sweet onion, chopped
2 cups frozen organic chopped spinach, thawed & drained
2 large mushrooms (white button or baby bella) sliced thin
4 large eggs
1 cup organic half and half
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Two dashes nutmeg
salt & pepper
Slice & serve.
Why yes, of course you can add cooked diced bacon at step 8.5. Swiss instead of cheddar would be an excellent substitute. If you don’t have any leftover mashed potatoes by all means use one of those deep dish frozen pie shells. If you add bacon and use a frozen pie crust this recipe becomes my world famous spinach quiche that I’ve been making for years. But as I move along the spectrum to more of a WFPB diet I’ve been leaving the bacon out.
I’m not quite sure how I would make this pie palatable for my easily offended militant vegan readers. I need to think about this a little more.
