Baked zucchini chips with paprika and sea salt

Registered dietitian Lauren Minchen recommends using paprika not only to flavor this healthy snack, but also to boost your metabolism, reduce your appetite, and lower your blood pressure. Cut a zucchini into thin slices and toss in 1 Tbsp olive oil, sea salt, and pepper. Sprinkle with paprika and bake at 450°F for 25 to 30 minutes. (courtesy of http://on-msn.com/1fE52HH)

Garlic Rubbed Roasted Cabbage Steaks

If you love cabbage, you are going to freak out about how good this is. Now, if you are on the fence about cabbage, you need to try this because this might be the recipe that converts you to a cabbage lover.

This is a simple side dish worthy of a dinner party and couldn’t be easier to make. Four ingredients, a couple of minutes to prepare and toss in the oven for an hour.

Ingredients
1 (approx 2lb) head of organic green cabbage, cut into 1″ thick slices
1.5 tablespoons olive oil
2 to 3 large garlic cloves, smashed
kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper
spray olive oil OR non-stick cooking spray

Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 400F and spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Pull outer leaf off cabbage (it’s usually dirty and nasty looking), cut cabbage from top to bottom (bottom being root) into 1″ thick slices.

2. Rub both sides of cabbage with smashed garlic.

3. Use a pastry brush to evenly spread the olive oil over both sides of the cabbage slices.

4. Finally, sprinkle each side with a bit of kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper.

5. Roast on the middle rack for 30 minutes. Carefully flip the cabbage steaks and roast for an additional 30 minutes until edges are brown and crispy. Serve hot and Enjoy!

 

 

Hello 411 Cafe' Family!

 

It's a blessing to be alive and a blessing to have good health. About 4 years ago I decided I was tired of being overweight. I didn't have any excuses. I knew better but the flesh is weak and I was allowing my taste buds to control me. I lost 30lbs. when I stopped drinking soda. After attending Doctah B's workshop 2 years ago at his Elevation Foundation in Los Angeles I decided to recommitt to changing my lifestyle with a meatless diet. It's been 2 years and I feel good! I only eat fish. I also eat a lot fresh raw spinach (yummy!) It took a long time to gain all this weight and I will take some time to release it but you know what I am enjoying the journey as I love my body back to good health. My challenge is consistent exercising. I don't like walking alone but I need to move my body! So when I get up in the morning I dance! It's a start and it's better than nothing.

 

 

So today I am challenging everyone in the 411 Cafe' Network especially those who need to release body weight to move your body and let's start living a healthy lifestyle. I invite you to join me on this journey. Let's support each other, check in with eachother, share healthy tips/recipes, let's walk together and encourage each other to exercise and move our bodies, the most precious gift we will ever have in our lifetime.

 

We currently have over 300 members in the network, reach out to someone, make a new friend. Let's tap into this rich resource of people and information. Also, if you haven't already join the 411 Cafe' Network Health & Wellness (click on special interest groups). We will use this page to profile your progress and photos!

 

I live in Carson and recently joined the YMCA in Gardena! Monday thru Thursday at 7:30pm I will be in the pool exercising and moving my body! If you're interested they do offer a 7 day free pass to check out and use their facility. Come out and join me if you're interested. I'm also looking for new meatless recipes and someone who has extra rebounder I can use. Thank you.

 

Our First Lady, Michelle Obama has also inspired me to stay focused and not to give up. I love Beyonce's new "Move Your Body" video inspired by the First Lady's "Move Your Body" campaign.  Reach out today to your 411 Cafe' friends, meet new friends and let's love and move our bodies!

A HEALTHY ALTERNATIVE FOR DONUTS & ICE-CREAM

If you've ever yearned for a warm, glazed donut, or a scoop of rich, chocolate ice cream, there are new options out there that deliver the sugar, but with a little less guilt. The sweet treats look like the originals, but they're a whole lot healthier.

Fonuts in Los Angeles is a new bakery that's brave enough to re-create an American classic, the donut.

Owner and pastry chef Waylynn Lucas never fries her sweet treats. Fonuts are either baked and/or steamed.

"You still get that fun, whimsical feeling like your indulging and eating a donut without all of the guilt," said Lucas.

Fonut flavors include, chocolate, peanut butter and jelly, strawberry buttermilk and Hawaiian coconut.

"We use fresh fruit in our fonuts," said Lucas. "We only use pure organic cane sugar, so we try and be a little more helpful in what we put into it."

If you don't want something sweet, pick up one of their savory choices, like the chorizo-cheddar fonut.

Traditional ice cream is another dessert favorite, and at KindKreme, all of the gourmet frozen desserts are raw, vegan and organic. There are three KindKreme locations: Pasadena, Studio City and Echo Park.

"I really want it to be available for everybody," said owner Mollie Engelhart. "As a child, I was a vegan and there wasn't anywhere for me to get ice cream."

None include refined sugars. They're created with all-natural, raw ingredients like coconut milk, dark chocolate, seasonal berries, bananas and other ingredients you wouldn't normally think of when it comes to ice cream.

"We put a lot of vegetables in our ice cream too: carrots, kale and beets. All hidden, so the kids just say, 'I want the green one, I want the pink one,'" said Engelhart.

The popular "Clean Green" icekream is made with coconut milk and loaded with good-for-you sea greens.

Co-owner Mimi Moss started Kind Kreme because she's got a child with a dairy allergy. None of their products contain dairy, and Moss' daughter loves the green sweet treat.

"She's not so into vegetables right now. That's why I kind of have to sneak them to her," said Moss.

Both places aren't suggesting we replace our beloved classics or anything, but a lot of us have allergies, so they just want to offer healthier alternatives.

See photos of these healthy donuts and ice cream.

I have enjoyed this juice on and off for over 10 years now and its one of my favorite brain boosting juices.  It also boasts exceptional health benefits and tastes delicious.    Below is a recent article and recipe that have been circulating on the web lately about the benefits of juicing certain veggies and fruits.

 

This MIRACLE DRINK has been circulating for a long time. It is worth your while to take note. There is a celebrity Mr. Seto who swears by it. He wants to make it public to draw the attention of people who have cancers. This is a drink that can protect bad cells forming in your body or it will restrain its growth! Mr. Seto had lung cancer. He was recommended to take this drink by a famous Herbalist from China. He has taken this drink diligently for 3 months and now his health is restored, and he is ready to take a pleasure trip. Thanks to this drink! It does not hurt for you to try.

It is like a Miracle Drink! It is simple.

You need one Beetroot, one carrot and one apple that combine together to make the JUICE !  Make sure they are organic
Wash the above, cut with the skin on into pieces and put them into the juicer and immediately you drink the juice. You can add some lime or lemon for more

No one likes to 'loose.' Let's stop saying: I need to loose weight, I have to loose weight, I am going to loose weight etc. Talking about loosing only creates a sense of fear, scarcity, and prompts us to eat even more. Instead, let's affirm that we love and appreciate our bodies and that we now choose to nurture our God given bodies with healthy and nutritious foods.

When you write, think, speak that affirmation your subconscious mind accepts it as true and will automatically motivate, inspire, cause you to eat healthier and less. That's how I lost 56 pounds and have kept it off for many years.

Another affirmation that achieves guaranteed results is: I love feeling light! It's the truth, isn't it?

I bless every BODY.

Spring is here, so it’s an ideal time for a detox…You do Spring cleaning for your house, why not your body? Let’s face it, we depend on our body to do so much for us, and it depends on us to take care of it, so it can last a lifetime. If you have been feeling weighed down or just a bit less shiny than you would like, its time for a little tune-up!  Nutritional Cleansing can tune you up in a heart beat.
