The Food Revolution Summit Starts Today

20140426-055510.jpg

The Food Revolution summit is starting today, and they have a line up of incredable speakers. These interviews will be up for 24 hours and are free.

Starting at 8 am Pacific Time John Robbins (yes, the guy who wrote “Diet For A New America”) will interview seven-time #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. Mark Hyman. Mark is founder and medical director of The UltraWellness Center, and chairman of the Institute for Functional Medicine. Mark’s Blood Sugar Solution Program and his 10 Day Detox Diet have inspired millions. Working with Pastor Rick Warren, Mark helped the congregation of Saddleback Church collectively lose 250,000 pounds in one year. Mark will empower you to treat the underlying causes of illness with good nutrition, and to have stronger immunity and more vitality.

Then at 9 am Pacific Time, you’ll hear a special conversation with Dr. Dean Ornish. Dean is one of the greatest medical pioneers in the world. His research has demonstrated – conclusively – that integrative changes in diet and lifestyle can reverse heart disease, turn on health-promoting genes and turn off cancer-causing genes, slow aging, and arrest or even reverse prostate cancer. Dean’s program is the first lifestyle-based approach to be paid for by Medicare. His work to galvanize insurance companies to cover lifestyle and preventive approaches – instead of just expensive and invasive drugs and surgery – is changing the face of medicine. Dean’s research proves that better diet can lead not only to better health, but also to more energy, more happiness, and even better sex!

At 10 am Pacific Time, we’ll hear from Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn. Caldwell is a surgeon and author of the bestselling book, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease. He has produced more than 150 scientific publications, and conducted a series of groundbreaking studies that have rocked the nutritional world. Caldwell has served as President of the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons, and as President of the Staff and as a member of the Board of Governors at the Cleveland Clinic. He explains, with irrefutable scientific evidence, how you can become “bullet-proof” to heart disease by changing what you eat.

All three of these sound fabulous to me. Like every other interview in the Food Revolution Summit, will be available to you online, on-demand, for 24 hours after the initial broadcast time.

How to make a great tasting focaccia-style low-carb bread replacement.See Transcript

Hi, Cliff Wildman with

Food. If you’re on a low carb diet, bread can be your arch-enemy, but there are some substitutes for bread out there and today I’m going to show you how to make foccacia-style flax bread. It’s very high in fiber, very healthy, and goes great with a low carb diet.

Low Carb Flax Bread Ingredients

For this recipe we’ll need:

1/3 cup of oil
1/2 cup of water
1 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of artificial sweetener
1 tablespoon of baking powder
5 eggs beaten together well
2 cups of flax seed meal – you can find this at most grocery stores in the baking aisle
First preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix the Low Carb Bread Ingredients

In a large bowl, pour the flax seed meal, the artificial sweetener, the salt, and the baking powder and mix well.

Now we’ll add oil, the water and the eggs and mix those together well. Let this set for two to three minutes to thicken.
Form the Low Carb Flax Bread

Here I have silicon mat on a baking tray. You can use oiled parchment paper. And now we’ll pour the batter into the pan, once you have it all there, you can spread this out on your pan to whatever thickness you desire, but it should be at least a 1/2 inch think.

Bake the Low Carb Bread

We’ll put this into the oven at 350 degrees for about twenty minutes. And you can pull it out and you just want to push on the bread and if it bounces back a bit it is done. Finally let this cool for about twenty minutes, and then take a spatula or knife and cut the bread as you like.

That’s the recipe. This is a delicious, nutritious bread substitute. It’s great for a low carb diet. Thanks for watching, and for more videos visit About.com

Which Vitamins Do Men Really Need?

Men
This one’s for you!!

Detroit Praise Network

According to the CDC, vitamins are defined as ?any of a group of organic compounds that are essential for normal growth, development and nutrition and are required in small quantities in the diet because they cannot be synthesized by the body.?

While vitamins are organic substances (made by plants or animals), minerals are inorganic elements that come from the earth, soil and water and are absorbed by plants.

Simple enough, right?

While all experts seem to agree that the best way to get your vitamins is to eat a balanced diet with a variety of foods, they also seem to always be weighing in on which vitamins you need and which ones you don?t. In addition, doctors say that different people need different nutrients at different times in their lives.

So, what are the most important vitamins for men, for total and long-lasting wellness?

Vitamin C
