I made for example a soup that found at http://www.sparkpeople.com/blog/blog.asp?p
ost=what_is_miso_paste and it has 14 AA's.
Also the Broccoli Raisin Salad with Chickpeas at http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-deta
il.asp?recipe=1703984

It seems that Spark Coach Stephanie has a lot of meatless recipes.

Like what?

For me, I can load up sauces, salads, smoothies and casseroles with lots of different AA bits and pieces.

I think that overall I did well. Although in general my diet wasn't that good and gained 6 ounces, I am more conscious of the AA's. Also, I found that some of my recipes are extremely loaded with AA's.

I think I did fairly well this month. I consistently posted to threads on this team, ate fairly healthy for the most part and kept up with my exercise... though I have cut back some on the exercise. My weight is maintaining fairly well, despite the decrease in exercise. I need to work on keeping with the AA foods a little more diligently.

For my challenge, the 4 weeks have gone well, eating lots of AA foods for the Eat to Live program. In addition I cut out all sweeteners, white flour, and processed foods for 2 weeks. Sweeteners were a real challenge but I found lots of good recipes that sweeten naturally with fruits.

Now, I'm doing the sodium exercise, limiting or trying to limit to 1000 mg a day. That has gone well until today when I'm almost up to 1400 again. That was because I had a fish sandwich at McDonalds. Nothing but fast food in Murphy and I had an appointment after Tabata class. I was absolutely famished. So I got the sandwich, and went home and added the healthy go withs.

the 6 weeks challenge and these exercises will continue.

I think the 2 plans are very compatible as long as you deal with the idea that the Fuhrman plan is very strict, not wanting us to eat certain foods, or limit them, until weight and all health issues are rectified.

I finished the 2 week exercise of no white flour, no sugar. I bought on peanut butter chocolate kiss cookie at the bakery and enjoyed it immensely. I also bought a loaf of Italian bread that was baked with slivers of garlic throughout. Delicious. And a tomato dish is going to figure into tomorrow's plan along with another slice or two. The bakery in Murphy hasn't heard of whole grain yet.

I DO agree with the wisdom of eating whole grains rather than grains stripped of nutrients and then fortified; and plan to do that, but I will still probably eat homemade bread made with white wheat flour from time to time. (just not the 6 pack of donuts in 2 days!!)

At this point, the Eat to Defeat people are not saying to avoid or limit animal products like Dr. Fuhrman is. As I understand Dr. Fuhrman, he is basing a lot of those ideas on the China Study.

And you are aware that the Eat to Defeat research shows anti-angiogenic benefit from dark meat chicken, yo. gurt, salmon, and other fish, shell fish, and those 4 cheeses (gouda and jarlsberg were 2 of those. So they are not saying to avoid animal products.
And they evidently have evidence that there are benefits, as far as anti-angiogenesis. So, if I choose animal products, I try to ONLY choose those that are on the Eat to Defeat List,

Example: Dark meat poultry instead of white
Yogurt instead of ice cream
gouda instead of cheddar
salmon or shrimp instead of I'm not sure what.

But that is how I think of it. If I buy a rotisserie chicken, I pull off all the chicken meat. I use the dark meat on salads, a iittle at a time or in soups. My dog gets to eat the white meat. She is very happy.

Until I finish losing the weight, i am going to limit animal products like Dr. Fuhrman recommends. He says a maximum of ONE serving a week, if you have a lot of weight to lose. I am trying to do that. This week, i thought I wanted a ground turkey patty. I fixed that and ate one bite. Gave the rest to my dog. It wasn't what I thought it would be. The same thing has happened with many other things I used to eat.

And if you are at goal weight and have no heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, etc. he says you may eat one serving a day, every other day. The idea is that allows your body a day of fruits and vegetables to clean out any harmful effects from the animal products before you pollute your body again. He says the fruits and vegetables are what your body needs to handle the food we eat that might have harmful agents. (think processed foods with all the additives)

I hope I have stayed focused on your question.
We can start a discussion about the reasons why Dr. Fuhrman says we should limit or eliminate animal products if you like.

Sue, I seem to drift from any grains much of the time then get a deep loonging for the "normal of growing up" and enjoy a few days of gluten free bread, rice dish or two and and gluten free pasta something then will go weeks again with no grains...

I have cut way back on animal proteins but still not versital in bean dishes enough to go exclusively ... also have trouble giving up eggs in particular as they have been my adrenal nurishers for many years ... would like to hear Dr Li's comments in eggs in particular of the animal world. Had you any specific info on them?

I started a 3 Steps to Incredible Health 6 week challenge on the first of July. It is amazing how the 2 lists (AA amd 3 Steps, Dr. Fuhrman) coincide.

There are a few things that Dr. fuhrman would REALLY limit like the animal products (chicken, fish, cheese, yogurt) But otherwise he would approve of all of the herbs, spices, fruits and veggies.

Neither list feels there is much nutrient benefit from grains.

I can't help but think that more is still to be learned about the value of grains. But what do I know? I used to eat 6 donuts in 2 days. Wouldn't recommend that to anyone!!

Thinking AA foods with each choice of food in the home and when purchasing.
Brought home cherries and blueberries and raspberries from market yesterday
Carrots prepped for freezer from the garden
Adding a sprinkle of spice to almost all foods now, even to cold cereal
Using up and making do with more of supplies in storeroom to make room for good-for-me foods when shopping and canning
This has been the second best lifestyle change in my life right after going Gluten free which is migrating into almost total grain free eating.
Does still restrict grabbing snack foods in public but am learning to go prepared or choose a grocer with fresh produce instead of the snack aisles.

I am doing fine with the challenge, but I still need to work harder on including more AA's in my weekly planning.

Linda F, I still eat fruit that isn't on the list, like pineapple and bananas, and mangoes. (don't much care for apricots)

So, while it's good to focus on AA preserving, other fruits and veg are still good for you.
If you had a bunch of apricots and you wanted to preserve them, I'd go for it!!

I agree that I strive to be more aware of AA foods ...often getting an idea from something you-all post. Like Udon Noodles was a new word for me ...schecked it out and unfortunately I cannot have because of my Gluten free requirements but I still learn!!

Commitment this summer is to only can/freeze, preserve AA fruites and veggies - example I was thinking apricots was on our list ...oooops and NO... so we will enjoy these few from market now while ripe and fresh and will get nectarines and peaches for the preserving ...That way I enjoy favorites now but am learning to "eat what I store and store what I eat" On the other hand, I put many raspberries in the freezer this past week and got a bunch of strawberries for this week Also cherries still being worked on from last week's market.

Hi BRAVELUTE. I will keep working on being more aware of the AA's, and try consciously to include them in my weekly menu planning. My challenge will be to post every single day, during this month on the threads Cooking with AA, and How Many AA did You Eat Yesterday..

This month, you will create your own challenge about anti-angiogenic foods.

1. Reply to this thread and explain what you want to do.
2. Return weekly and tell us how it's going, what you're doing.
3. Try to encourage other members to join with you on your challenge.
4. If you get someone to join in with you, start that up as your own new thread and we'll all follow it!!

Craftsfan1, thanks for reminding me it was July!! I was planning your idea for when it got colder, maybe October or Nov.
