Weekend Recipe: Grass-Fed Beef Bourguignon With Cauliflower Mash
This recipe is rich with goodness and flavor — and is comfort food at its best. The ingredients are simple: Quality grass-fed beef is married together with vegetables and a few glasses of full-bodied red wine. I’ve used carrot puree to thicken the Bourguignon sauce towards the end of cooking, which is a lovely way of thickening sauces without using refined white flours. Don’t overcook your cauliflower. Make sure to chop the ingredients finely before cooking and keep an eye on the cooking time. Blend it when hot, which will result in a creamy, white mash that tastes wonderful. This recipe is from my cookbo...

Study links vegetarian diet in pregnancy to substance abuse in offspring
Conclusion While having too little vitamin B12 in your diet during pregnancy can affect a baby's development, it remains to be proven whether a vegetarian diet in pregnancy can cause substance abuse problems in teenage offspring. The findings do not mean that vegetarian pregnant women need to start eating meat. It is already recommended that vegetarian and vegan mums-to-be take special care to ensure they get enough of certain nutrients that are found in meat and fish, such as vitamin B12, vitamin D and iron. The study identifies a possible link between having little or no meat consumption in pregnancy (which may have led ...

Conclusion This is an early investigative research study, and while some of the findings are interesting, it's a long way from showing that yeast extract spreads can help with conditions like epilepsy or other neurological disorders. The study's strength is that it was carried out as a randomised controlled trial. However, its small size means we need to see the results replicated in larger studies to be sure they are not down to chance. We also need to see longer-term studies into the actual clinical effects of the changes measured. At this point, we don't know what effect – if any – the changes in brain respo...

Metformin is Big Pharma's pride and joy when it comes to diabetes. Over 120 million diabetics take this drug to try to control their blood sugar. Even anti-aging doctors have gotten on the bandwagon. They think metformin is a wonder drug. My colleagues keep asking me when I'm going to start prescribing it. Short-term, drugs can be a lifesaver. But long-term, the track record is not so good. Long term, like so many of Big Pharma's "cures," metformin creates more problems than it solves… Patients often stay on this drug for 10 years… 20 years… and more. That's a long time to be ...

Without Essential Nutrients, A Child’s Body Struggles To Do These Things
When our children get into cars, we make them buckle their seat belts. And when they learn to ride bikes, we teach them to wear helmets. But not everything that has to do with our children’s health and well-being is as easy to see as a helmet or as simple to reach for as a seatbelt. In countries across the globe, in food deserts here in the U.S. and, even, in many of our homes, children are not getting proper nutrition. And the consequences are tremendous: adequate vitamin and mineral intake is essential for a child’s health and development, particularly in the first 1,000 days of life. An infant or a child wi...
