3 Steps to Incredible Health (Eat to Live) Day 6

Saturday, July 06, 2013

This day was very enjoyable. I only had to cook the breakfast in the microwave, steam the artichokes, heat the leftovers (soup, and eggplant casserole sauce)

I finally braved my way through the black bean pasta noodles. They really weren't a problem. I felt they were a bit too chewy, but that might be because it was the first experience with it and I was expecting wheat pasta.
So next time I'll break the noodles up before boiling, and add a minute or 2.

I'm experimenting. I made 2 servings, and I'm seeing how it stores and reheats. I'm also thinking I'd like to finish the cooking in with the sauce, or add some sauce to the cooking water??

I spent some time developing and inputting recipes, and I'm off to the pool now.

Best of the day: still to come at the pool.
2nd best: Banana Berry Breakfast
Tie for 2nd place: Bravelute's Eggplant shiitake, spinach casserole which I put as a sauce on top of the bean pasta noodles.

Worst of the day: Black Bean pasta noodles, but I will try them again!!

The Plan:

(numbers are my counts for anti-angiogenic foods. The main reason I'm following Dr. Fuhrman's 3 Steps to Incredible Health is to fight off a 3rd round of cancer by eating anti-angiogenic foods.)

3 B Banana Berry Breakfast

19 L Golden Austrian Cauliflower Cream Soup 9
Salad with romaine, 2 servings Friday raw veg bowl 5
AVO dressing 1
orange 1
Millet and Flax herb chips 1

17 D: Steamed Artichoke 1 with

Explore Asian Black Bean pasta with
Bravelute's Eggplant shiitake, spinach casserole 6

PS: I found the black bean noodles at my health food store. Dr. Fuhrman sells the same ones on his website. I've posted links. I'll see if I can find them again.

3 Steps to Incredible Health is Dr. Fuhrman's newest program. It incorporates the old with newer information. He includes 3 levels of diet plan as opposed to 2 levels in Eat for Life. He includes 10 food exercises designed to help you make the life changes in eating patterns. I've posted info about this on the Eat to Live Team Page.

Perhaps this link will take you there:

    You're doing a great job!

    By about day 10 of my strict E2L six-week challenge, making sure my food group calorie proportions were in line with Dr. Fuhrman's pyramid. I woke up realizing I felt better than I had in years... decades even: My skin transformed so completely at that point that I *knew* tremendous cell rejuvenation was occurring (and still is).

    My daughter is here on a visit for the first time since Christmas 2012, and swears I look like the last 15 years just disappeared from my entire body! Not only have I lost a great deal of weight (down 83 pounds from my heaviest, 62 pounds of that while following Joel Fuhrman, M.D.'s "Eat to Live" for the last five months), but there's been unexpected reversal of many signs of aging, and my health has improved dramatically (although I am by no means completely cured of all that ails me).

    So keep on keeping on! This is a wonderful thing you are doing for yourself.

    I think the same as Patriciaak on the redo on the pasta, but also were did you find ( Black Bean pasta noodles?) And you said Dr. Fuhrman's is that a book? And cancer I would like to learn more. Thanks and have a good weekend! emoticon

    IPersonally, I'd finish the cooking in with the sauce, rather than add some sauce to the cooking water. I think it would be more flavorful!
