The Skinny on Soy ©Marie Oser 2016, Vegan Publishers

Soy. Mention its benefits in polite company and brace yourself for a barrage of questions and accusations directed at soy and all the products made from it.

For more than a dozen years now, posting soy recipes or articles is bound to elicit some hysterical comments from consumers frightened by an onslaught of anti-soy rhetoric from a small group of serial soy bashers

Soy has a long and venerable history spanning fifty centuries of Asian culture and has been the subject of more than seventy years of research in the scientific community.

As interest in the health benefits of soy intensified in the research community, the popularity of soyfoods skyrocketed and acceptance among mainstream consumers began to take hold. …read more of The Skinny on Soy Takes on Soy-Bashers! here

How Eating Plants May Help Prevent Alzheimer’s Disease

The Intake of saturated fats and added sugars, two of the primary components of a modern Western diet is linked to the development of Alzheimer’s disease.

Plant-derived foods contain thousands of compounds with antioxidant properties, some of which can traverse the blood-brain barrier and may have neuroprotective effects by assisting with antioxidant defense.

The concept of “brain rust” is that neurodegenerative diseases arise from excess oxidative stress. Nature has gifted humankind with a plethora of plants, fruits, vegetables and nuts, and the diverse array of bioactive nutrients present in these natural products may play a pivotal role in prevention and one day, perhaps, even the cure of various neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease.

Evidence suggests that naturally occurring plant compounds may potentially hinder neurodegeneration, and even improve memory and cognitive function. …read more of How Eating Plants May Help Prevent Alzheimer’s Disease here

I like to usher in baking season with my very favorite brownie recipe.  A tribute to American’s favorite treat, these pumpkin brownies are moist, delicious and rich in healthful antioxidants.

Probably created at the beginning of the twentieth century in New England, brownie recipes traditionally call for lots of fat… as much as a full stick of butter (eight ounces) and squares of unsweetened baking chocolate, which is very high in saturated fat.

As a health conscious vegan, excess dietary fat is an issue of some concern, as most vegan desserts seem to contain high levels of fat.  In my kitchen, this is just not necessary!  …read more of Pumpkin Walnut Brownies, Nutritious, Delicious and Vegan! here

Finding the right kind of healthy, simple and  delicious breakfast to keep you full and flying high until lunch without piling the on the pounds is a wonderful trick to have up your sleeve.

Some breakfasts, such as cold cereal can digest too quickly and leave you feeling light-headed and flighty by mid-morning. Adding a handful of raw nuts to your morning cereal bowl helps, but you will most likely still burn out before lunch.

Traditional breakfast foods, such as eggs, bacon and hash browns are so heavy that they bog you down, can make you sleepy and certainly don’t promote a healthy lifestyle. …read more of Best Vegan Breakfasts, Tasty and Satisfying here
