Wheat Belly Holiday Recipes: Healthy Biscuits and Gravy Dr. William Davis

Biscuits and gravy: the ultimate comfort food . . . one you thought youd never have again!

The familiar dish of breakfast and holiday meals is recreated here with a delicious gravy that you can pour over freshly-baked hot biscuits. Because it contains no wheat or other unhealthy thickeners like cornstarch made with junk carbohydrates, there should be no blood sugar or insulin problems with this dish, nor joint pain, edema, acid reflux, mind fog, or dandrufflife is good without grains!

Grain-free biscuits and gravy are also much more filling than their grain-based counterparts. It means that, should you prepare these biscuits as part of a larger holiday meal, you may get by with preparing fewer dishes, as your family and guests will find themselves full with less food.

While the gravy is also dairy-free for those with dairy intolerances, the biscuits are not, as there are cheese and butter in the biscuits, both of which are optional, e.g., leave out the cheese and replace butter with coconut or other oil.

Makes 10 biscuits

Gravy:
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 pound loose sausage meat
2 cups beef broth
can (13.6 ounces) coconut milk or cream
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
teaspoon sea salt
Dash ground black pepper

Biscuits:
1 cup shredded cheddar (or other) cheese
2 cups almond meal/flour
cup coconut flour
teaspoon baking soda
teaspoon sea salt
2 large eggs
4 ounces butter, melted (or other oil, e.g., extra-light olive, coconut, walnut)

To make gravy:
In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Saut sausage, breaking up as it browns. Cook until thoroughly cooked and no longer pink.

Turn heat up to medium to high and pour in beef broth. Heat just short of boiling, then turn down to low heat. Pour in coconut milk and stir in well. Add onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper and simmer over low heat for 5 minutes. Add additional salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and set aside.

To make biscuits:
Preheat oven to 325 F.

In food chopper or processor, pulse shredded cheese to finer, granular consistency.

Pour cheese into large bowl, then add almond meal, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt and mix thoroughly. Add the eggs and butter or oil and mix thoroughly to yield thick dough.

Spoon out dough into 10 or so -inch thick mounds onto a parchment paper-lined baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly browned and toothpick withdr...

Whats the story with zinc? Dr. William Davis

In the several decades since the need for dietary zinc was discovered, it has proven to be far more important to overall health than initially thought. And deficiency is proving to be common.

You may recall that the phytates of wheat and grains block nearly all absorption of dietary zinc, along with blocking iron, calcium, and magnesium (all positively-charged cations). Just as iron deficiency anemia with hemoglobin values of 7 or 8 g/dl resistant to iron supplementation commonly develops in grain-consuming populations, so a parallel zinc deficiency also develops (although not well reflected by blood levels of zinc, which underestimates tissue levels). Zinc appears to be nearly as important to overall health as iron.

You can also appreciate that there is no shortage of conventional health advice to correct what is nothing more than nutritional deficiencies caused by grain consumption: women take calcium for bone health (a very bad idea), the varied phenomena of magnesium deficiency (e.g., migraine headaches, hypertension, heart rhythm disorders, osteoporosis) are managed with prescription drugs, etc. Zinc deficiency likewise shows itself in many ways, rarely recognized as zinc deficiency but treated, for instance, as IBS, eczema, or pre-diabetes.

Zinc, like magnesium, is an essential cofactor required for thousands of reactions in the body and thereby plays a crucial role in many aspects of health, with zinc deficiency evident in many varied ways. We now appreciate that zinc deficiency, for example, adds to insulin resistance, inflammatory diseases, hormonal disruption, and even cognitive impairment and dementia, and can be responsible for hair loss, diarrhea, impaired growth and development in children, impaired sexual function, skin rashes, and increased susceptibility to viral and bacterial infections. Reflecting the myriad functions for zinc, 3% of the human genome codes for zinc-containing proteins/enzymes.

Note that zinc, like vitamin B12, is obtained primarily from animal products and is therefore one of the major deficiencies that plague people who are vegan/vegetarian. Humans, thro...

New Blood Pressure Guidelines Will Put More People in Risk Pool Whole Foods Magazine

Under new guidelines instituted by the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology, high blood pressure, which was once defined as 140/90 millimeters of mercury or greater, is now 130/80.

The new recommendation stems from the results of a federally-funded study, called Sprint, published in The New England Journal of Medicine in 2015. It is estimated that under the new regulations, the number of American adults with high blood pressure will rise from 72 million to 103 million. Of those, an estimated 4.2 million will be new candidates for high blood pressure medication, reports The New York Times.

The government-funded study observed two groups of individuals over the age of 50 who were already predisposed to cardiovascular health issues. The researchers studied a high target group with a systolic blood pressure of less than 140 and a low target group with a systolic blood pressure of less than 120.

The chief finding was that the low target group had 25% fewer cardiovascular issues (such as stroke or heart attack) than the high target group.

Gilbert Welch, a professor of medicine at the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, noted in an oped in The New York Times that the 25% reduction was the difference between 8% in the high target group and 6% in the low target group.

Relative changes like a 25% reduction always sound impressive, wrote Welch, the author of Less Medicine, More Health: 7 Assumptions That Drive Too Much Medical Care.

Heres an opportunity to educate your customers about other ways to reduce the risk of hypertension. Regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle are the first two ways.

The popular Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet which includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, poultry, fish, low-fat dairy foods, and lots of potassium has been shown to lower hypertension through healthy eating habits.

Doctors also recommend reducing sodium intake to 1,500 milligrams (mg) a day for those who have hypertension or are at high risk of developing hypertension (people age 51 or older and individuals of any age who are black). Experts also recommend consuming alcohol in moderation and abstaining from smoking tobacco, as it restricts blood vessels.

Healthy weight management is also key for maintaining healthy blood pressure. For overweight people, blood pressure can drop by one point for every 2.2 pounds of weight lost. Aerobic exercise for 90 to 150 minutes per week can lower blood pressure five to eight points.

In terms of supplements, look for things with fiber (such as blond psyllium and wheat bran), minerals (such as magnesium, calcium and potassium), folic acid, nitric oxide boosters (such as cocoa, coenzyme Q10, L-arginine or garlic), and omega-3 fatty acids (such as fish oil supplements or flaxseed).

Although I always enjoy sticking in season with pumpkin and cranberry dishes, I don't let it constrain me too much and I am not afraid to mix it up with combinations of sweet and savoury.

Aker BioMarine Comes Out on Top in SFP Ratings Whole Foods Magazine

Oslo, Norway For the third year in a row, Aker BioMarine has received an A rating from The Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) for its krill fishery in the Antarctic. Only 2.2% of the catch volume of reduction fisheries in the analysis achieved this rating, and all correspond to its fishery.

The Reduction Fisheries: SFP Fisheries Sustainability Overview 2017 analyzed 20 of the most significant fisheries used for the production of fishmeal or fish oil and assessed the sustainability of the current management regimes.

Some 81% of the total catch volume came from stocks that are reasonably well managed, an improvement from last year, where only 57.4% of the fisheries received that rating.

The Sustainable Fisheries Partnership is a business-focused NGO (non-governmental organization) that is helping to reshape the world of corporate responsibility by allowing companies to directly engage with suppliers of natural resources.

As part of the SFPs mission to assess and improve the needs of sustainability, the organization analyzed data from 20 stocks from 13 species and two main groups (fish and crustaceans), rated according to the sustainability assessment presented on FishSource.

This report shows a real improvement in the management of reduction fisheries and is a clear demonstration that the fishmeal and fish oil sector is on a very positive trend toward sustainability, said Blake Lee-Harwood, strategy director for the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership, in a statement accompanying the release. There is still a huge challenge in Asia but with enough support from industry and government we can hope for similar levels of improvement there as well.

The report shows a significant improvement for several other fisheries from last year, which is proof that many participants in the fishing industry are serious about doing business the right way, says Cilia Holmes Indahl, Director Sustainability at Aker BioMarine. As a sustainability frontrunner, we are very satisfied that others are following. We have openly shared our data and expertise to drive positive change in the industry and take the right steps to ensure that the fisheries take responsibility for the ecosystems in which they harvest. We need omega-3s for our overall health and the all hands on deck approach to sustainability helps us balance our work for improving human health with taking care of the environment.

Among the other findings:

  • 17% (1.7 million tons) of the total catch for reduction purposes comes from poorly managed fisheries (Category C), a significant drop compared to 42.6% last year.
  • Out of the 20 stocks of this overvie...

Staying Safe Online: Five Cyber Safety Tips Every Parent Should Teach Their Kids Ready Nutrition

Years ago, when my kids were in elementary school, I let one of them play a kids game on my computer. Hours later, when I got back on the computer, I had a virus. This was our first of many discussions about cyber safety.

Its safe to say that the internet is increasingly becoming more of an unsafe place thanks to new cyber threats coming out and child predators finding more sophisticated ways of accessing our childrens accounts. While this frightens parents, it doesnt seem to stop children from wanting to get online to play games, hang out with friends, or research. Parents must stay ever vigilant in making sure children know the threats that are out there.

As a parent, I have explained the dangers on the internet and what they need to avoid, but is this enough? We say our Stay Safe Online and Keep Away From Perverts lecture and send them on their merry way? There is much more that we must explain to them!

Part of having the responsibility of being on the internet is using it safely. These tips are musts for ensuring your kids are staying safe online.

  1. What you put out into the internet stays there even if you delete it. It is important to understand this and avoid making off-hand comments, bullying statements to other kids, etc. What you put on the internet now will stay on the internet. That means your future boss could read it, your childrens children could read it, so be aware of this.
  2. Check your basic security to see what is showing up on search engines. Doing a simple Google search on your name, address, etc. to see if your personal information is protected is a great start in making sure your kids are staying safe. Moreover, teach them to keep this information off the internet. That means not adding this to social media accounts. To be clear, kids and teens should not post their email address, physical home address, phone numbers or any information that compromises the safety of the family.
  3. Use the strictest privacy settings for social media accounts. With 73% of teens and 68% of young adults on social media, its hard to avoid. You still have a say in where they socialize online, so be present when they are setting up their accounts to ensure their privacy is protected. As well, instruct them not to put personal information out there. For instance, a teen posts a message on F...

Popular Diestel Turkey Brand Sold at Whole Foods Tests Positive for FDA-Prohibited Drug Residue Organic Consumers Association blogs

November 16, 2017
Organic Consumers Association
Katherine Paul

Diestel Turkey, sold by Whole Foods and other retailers at premium prices, says on its website that its animals are never given hormones, antibiotics or growth stimulants.

But Diestel Turkey samples tested by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) suggest otherwise, leading consumers to wonder: Can these companies be trusted?

According to testing conducted under the USDAs Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) National Residue Program, samples of Diestel Turkey products tested positive for numerous drug and antibiotic residues.

One of those drugs, Chloramphenicol, is strictly prohibited by the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in food production because its known to have severe toxic effects in humans including bone marrow suppression or aplastic anemia in susceptible individuals.

According to an amended complaint filed November 13, against Diestel Turkey Ranch, the FSIS inspected Diestel turkeys on four dates in 2015 and 2016, and reported, in addition to Chloramphenicol, residues of antibiotics important for human use, veterinary antibiotics, a hormone and other pharmaceuticals.

However, recent studies estimate that almost 70% of Americans are not getting the recommended daily intake of magnesium. Thats why we developed Mag Pak.

The best thing about Mag Pak is the to-go packets can be thrown in any purse, pocket, backpack, gym bag, or lunch box for any on-the-go adventure! Its not only convenient, it tastes great, is naturally flavored, and is formulated with a special blend of magnesium malate, magnesium carbonate, and citric acid that once added to water, creates magnesium citrate, a highly absorbable form of magnesium.

We also added a complex of full spectrum electrolytes for a magnesium supplement that is unmatched in the industry from Americas #1 Liquid Magnesium Brand.

Magic Muffins The Weston A. Price Foundation

This is a low glycemic, grainless recipe. I do not use egg whites because Im allergic to the whites but not the yolks. I find it great for a late afternoon snack, before dinner or can be enjoyed as dessert with lunch.

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups crispy almond flour (made fresh from soaked and dried almonds)
  • 1/4 cup flax seed meal (made fresh)
  • 1 cup sugar-free grated coconut
  • 5 pastured egg yolks
  • 1 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 cup of grated zucchini, apple, carrot or yam
  • 1/4 teaspoon unrefined salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

optional items

  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • cinnamon
  • cardamom
  • lemon/orange peel
  • grated ginger

Mix all dry ingredients. Add egg yolks then grated zucchini, apple, carrot or yam. Add melted coconut oil and vanilla. Mix all together and add a little hot water if needed for consistency.

Fill muffin pans 3/4 full. Bake at 350F for 25-30 minutes until golden brown on top. Let cool in muffin pans to hold shape. I store in the freezer, good as is or warmed slightly with butter on top.
